There were plenty of talking points from the A-League Round 7 matches. The plucky Brisbane Roar side led by Ross Aloisi emerged victorious against Adelaide, putting them in second place on the ladder. Their clinical performance earned them three points and has seen them achieve almost 60% of their total wins from the previous season in just seven rounds.
Melbourne Victory’s win against the Western Sydney Wanderers was also a highlight, with Bruno Fornaroli’s four-goal haul securing the victory for his team. The team’s excellent form has made them one of only two undefeated teams in the league.
On the other hand, Western United and manager John Aloisi are struggling after a 4-0 loss against the Central Coast Mariners. Their current form has put pressure on Aloisi’s position as manager, with questions arising about his future with the team.
The unbeaten Wellington Phoenix suffered their first loss of the season against the Newcastle Jets, who played exceptionally well to secure a 3-0 victory. This result has raised concerns about Wellington’s ability to perform against lower-ranking teams in the league.
Other noteworthy events include Perth Glory’s struggle to improve their performance from last season, promising defender Kealey Adamson joining Macarthur, and the possibility of Mathew Leckie’s form impacting Melbourne City.
