Clive has been a massive turn off for most fans but looks to be getting better. He held a couple of free games which were well attended and apart from his blatent politics has been making less clangers in the media.
Cullina has been allowed to go to the jets. Could be Clive getting ready to bail but hopefully it's just him being a bit more practical in that no ones worth one million a season in the a league and the money would be better spent on making their tickets cheaper.

They don't have a lot of fans and I dont think it would be a bad plan to focus on youth for a while and cut costs. There youth team has won the NYL for the past two seasons.

Ahhh yes, the joys of franchise-based leagues that lack promotion and relegation, and have key decisions made by suits with no connection to any of the clubs...

Sounds awfully familiar. :smt090

I was up far too late last night watching the game on the telly. It was nuts. Mariners dominated the first 10 minutes but then Brisbane took over but without really being able to create that killer chance. Just lots of getting near goal and shooting but nothing that was very threatening.

90 minutes ended and I thought that Brisbane would have to crack them at some point but the Mariners defence was huge the whole game, then the Mariners scored about 4 mins in to the extra period, and then again soon after and all of a sudden it's 2-0 to them and into the second half of extra time. Brisbane scored a nice goal with 4 mins to go but it seemed more like a consolation goal, then they headed home in the last seconds and there wasn't even time for a restart, that's how late they left it.

There was a bit of inevitability about them winning the penalty shootout.

While I felt gutted for the Mariners because of the way they lost you'd be a cruel person not to have wanted brisbane to win the title. 27 games unbeaten going into it and they've scored in all 27. It's now 28 which is the current 'world record' with Barcelona second on 25 according to the commentators.

Well done Brisbane, even if you're captain is a bit nuts.

I just saw the highlights but looked like a good one...Central Coast must be crushed.

Great crowd as well which I was very happy to see....

Just to confirm, Central Coast Mariners have qualified for the 2012 Champions League, along with (obviously) Brisbane Roar.

Heard it from a VERY reliable source (now I sound like Maas!!!) so i believe that they are at least negotiating.
