Bumper A-League Special!

The 10th season of the A-League starts in a matter of days - and we've pulled out all the stops to give you an AMAZING bumper gold class preview special in the new Australian FourFourTwo out today! 

But we don't just analyse EVERY club, interview their star players and give an expert panel's top six predictions for the season. Oh no. (But we do that too - with interviews with Marcelo Carrusca, Besart Berisha, Damien Duff, Andy Keogh, Alex Brosque, Nathan Burns, Tomi Juric, Kew Jaliens, Matt McKay and John Hutchinson among others...)

We also look back at the first nine seasons of the A-League with FFA CEO David Gallop's review of its achievements and failures along the way - plus where it goes from here (and when...) - in his revealing exclusive interview with The Age's Michael Lynch.

Plus we give you the ULTIMATE top ten of A-League top tens to mark the 10th season, plus SBS's Les Murray looks at how the game has grown since its uncertain start back in 2004 out of the ashes of the NSL.

But that's just us getting warmed up!

We also go inside Brisbane Roar to find out what's made them the unstoppable team of winners they've become - chatting with everyone from the top down to discover the secret of their success in an in-depth eight page feature.

And from the top, we go behind the scenes at last season's bottom side, Melbourne Heart, and find out how their rebirth as the all-new, star-studded Melbourne City could turn next season on its head.

We're still not done though - the season hasn't even kicked off and fans and the FFA are at loggerheads once more. We talk to both sides on the new row threatening to silence the stands this season...

Want more? How about the five star signings set to light up the A-League next season? Get the lowdown on them with our talentspotter profiles.

And finally, The World Game's Vitor Sobral picks the ultimate A-League XI from the first nine seasons. Who made the grade? Get ready to argue...

That's still not all though - we've thrown in an exclusive FourFourTwo-only A-League trading card - only available with this issue - from the brilliant new A-League set being launched this season. 

And we've got the perfect pocket fixture lists to make sure you never miss a moment of the action all season long.

We've even thrown in a FREE BONUS MAG too - all yours. Totally free. Take it, enjoy it.

All this is in a newsagent near you right now.
