Mariners stage amazing comeback

Monday, 6th October 2008 9:58pm
I think the match of the round for round 7 was the 3-all draw between Adelaide United and the Central Coast Mariners.

Adelaide were two up at half-time and then 3 up early in the second half but the Mariners managed to fight back and force a draw. At least Adelaide did not end up losing because that would have been painful for their fans after such a high early in the match.

Round 7 is finished and every team has played each other now and the ladder seems to suggest top five teams so far with the three teams somehow struggling.

All this can change in the second third if the struggling teams correct their mistakes and in the case of Perth Glory tighten their defence and also start to score goals.

A third of the season has now gone in the A-League and maybe its now time to look in more details into the first and second halves.

We have seen 86 goals scored in this first third and of these home teams scored the bulk of them with 51 goals.

Its not surprising that a lot of these goals have been scored in the second half where a total of 51 goals were scored.

A lot of matches go to half time at nil all and hence only 35 goals were scored in the second half.


Below are two tables that show team performance when considering just one half.

The first table is the first half table and this only considers the results from the first half only.

TeamPlayedGoal DiffPoints
Adelaide United FC 7 314
Sydney FC 7 613
Melbourne Victory 7 513
Central Coast Mariners 7 19
Queensland Roar 7 17
Newcastle Jets 7 -26
Wellington Phoenix 7 -25
Perth Glory 7 -122


The second table is just for the second half.


TeamPlayedGoal DiffPoints
Melbourne Victory 7 514
Central Coast Mariners 7 311
Queensland Roar 7 19
Sydney FC 7 08
Perth Glory 7 -18
Adelaide United FC 7 -17
Newcastle Jets 7 -47
Wellington Phoenix 7 -36


and now the real table:


TeamPlayedGoal DiffPoints
Melbourne Victory 7 1014
Sydney FC 7 612
Adelaide United FC 7 211
Central Coast Mariners 7 410
Queensland Roar 7 29
Newcastle Jets 7 -67
Wellington Phoenix 7 -56
Perth Glory 7 -134


We will have a similar review after round 14 and also at the end of the season.
