Minutes before River Plate kicked off against Argentinos Juniors, the radio confidently informed us that this weekend would be remembered in weeks, months, and perhaps even years to come as one of the best rounds of the season.
This weekend's A-League Grand Final between Brisbane Roar and Central Coast Mariners sees two of Australia's much-maligned coaches go head-to-head. Roar's Ange Postecoglou and Mariners' Graham Arnold have been the whipping boys of the Australian press in the (not-so distant) past. That their teams meet in the championship decider is a testament not only to their coaching abilities but to a self-belief that they still had what it takes to make a mark on the Aussie game.
It sure is nice to see justice done on the football field; it doesnÃ¢ÂÂt happen too much during a season, so letÃ¢ÂÂs make the most of it. For example, an undeserved penalty missed by the player who flung himself through the air to win the kick in the first place Ã¢ÂÂ lovely!
Safe-for-work streaker action now, as a mankini-wearing Borat impersonator invades the pitch at Havant & Waterlooville v Dorchester. After the usual larking about, odd things start to happen. But are they right?
