Re: Adelaide Utd v Perth Glory

Well done to Adrian & all the AU team with an even better performance than our previous win at home. :clap: AU on last night’s showing are playing some of the best futbal I have seen from them so credit must go to Adrian. We now need to just build on this momentum & carry the same confidence we are ...

Re: Adelaide Utd v Perth Glory

Great to see Charlotte back in right back, Dylan in midfield, Mallory up forward and Isobel Hodgson back in defence. I feel Meleri Mullen should replace Georgia Campagnale in the midfiled I also would like to see Charlotte starting at right back bec although Emily tries hard she just hasn't shown m...

Congratulations Dylan on your appointment as Captain of Adelaide United. Well deserved and a great honour to lead AU.
Wholeheartedly agree with Sportsbird & definitely the right choice made by AU after a fine WNPL season for AC.
Well done Dylan. :thumbup:

Sometimes great teams lose. Doesn’t make them any less great. Bigger & better teams have disappointed on 'the big stage' & this AC side is not the first nor will they be the last. Only takes a few players to be down on their form in the match that counts the most & an upset can easily happen. Witho...

You mark Cote and Dawber closely and don't give them any space and you will find they will crumble under pressure.
