• A lack of penetration against a 10 man Victory outfit saw the Wanderers take an unhappy point and kill their home final hopes.

    The game reached no substantial heights, as the Wanderers stayed well on top of Melbourne Victory, who were reduced to trying to break on the counter. The Wanderers best chances came from Victory mistakes as they played out from the back, but Nichols, Jumpei & Santalab lacked composure in the final third.

    Victory were reduced to 10 men early in the second half, as Daniel Georgievski was given his marching orders for a second bookable offence after 53 minutes for a stupid leaping tackle on Scott Neville. Although the defender got a piece of the ball, the tackle was lunge and he took a lot more of Neville than he did of the ball.

    There were only 3 shots on target in the entire 90 minutes. From both sides combined.

    The draw means the Wanderers have no chance of hosting a home final. The final round of the season will see if the Wanderers will travel to Brisbane or Melbourne City.

    The final game of the season is in Adelaide next weekend.

    • Digital rights will be minuscule for the A-League. NRL digital rights were costed at $90 million over 6 years ($15 million per year) but that also includes the naming rights sponsorship to the entire competition. The A-League naming rights appears to be worth about $3.3 million per year. I doubt the A-League digital rights alone would be worth more than 3 million per year at the highest, and even that feels a bit too high considering that would be a combined (Digital + Naming Rights) $6.6 million per year compared to NRL's $15 million per year. I think it'll be lucky to reach $2.3 million (thus taking the overall rights deal to $60 million per year). Knowing FFA & Gallop I wouldn't be shocked if they just sell the thing for 10 years to secure more cash to try and get the owners onside.
    • It's only been around for a couple of seasons. LVG's first season IIRC. If you've watched a United game in that time, you almost certainly would've heard it. It gets a run at 99% of our games 
    • Awesome, thanks for that! Hopefully we see a decent outcome for the digital rights.
