The week that was: Archie, Carlton and Sorensen
As their clash against Liverpool nears, the Reds unveiled a, er, yellow kit for the July 20 encounter at Adelaide Oval.
The goalkeepers made news, with captain Eugene Galekovic telling FFA Cup opponents Darwin Olympic to expect a torrid time.
Paul Izzo is no longer the number two, after signing with the Central Coast Mariners.
It came as little surprise, but the Bakrie Group is on the verge of selling the Roar after troubled times.
In on-field news, new signing Jamie Maclaren is excited about working with coach John Aloisi.
But Brandon Borrello may not be alongside him come the start of the new season.
CENTRAL COAST MARINERS
There was a much-needed signing, with Izzo joining.
The potential relocation of home games remains an option, as does North Sydney Oval.
Their biggest signing of the week was an inaugural one as Matildas co-captain Lisa De Vanna penned a deal with their W-League side.
It was all about re-signings for the reigning A-League champions, who have held onto Archie Thompson.
Goalkeeper Lawrence Thomas and Jesse Makarounas are also hanging around.
Meanwhile, their FFA Cup opponents, the Balmain Tigers, are ready to claim an upset victory.
And the Victory's chase of an Australian marquee continues.
A relatively quiet week for the Jets, but coach Scott Miller has been "blown away" during pre-season.
Meanwhile, the Jets are linked to multiple players.
Looking to move on from last season, coach Kenny Lowe is happy about the fresh start.
But they have upset club great Jamie Harnwell, who has opted against re-applying for his job as Glory's W-League coach.
Maybe the signing of Nikita Rukavytsya would brighten things up again.
Not much action at the Sky Blues, but Crawley has joined the club as goalkeeping coach.
And they, too, may be looking at Rukavytsya.
As Nathan Burns departed, the Phoenix received good news as Louis Fenton re-signed.
