The A-League season kicks off tomorrow night. I was living in Brisbane when the A-League began in 2005, so as a football fan I got on board as a Brisbane Roar fan. As for most football fans in Australia, the only option prior to that was the English Premier League (and I was a massive Liverpool fan!). Over the last 10 years I've found myself becoming a much bigger fan of the A-League than the EPL. Obviously the quality is not even close to the EPL, but having a local professional team that I can go and watch live every second week (and games in aussie prime time) has made it easy to get hooked. I've been a season member for the last four years, and don't miss a single home game. Are there any other A-League fans out there? This season hasn't had the excitement that some of the previous ones have, but I'm looking forward to it regardless. I think the front runners at the moment would have to Melbourne Victory and Melbourne City, as well as Sydney FC. Unfortunately Brisbane has had a tough off-season and I can see us having a rough year.
