What’s hot and what’s not this week in the Hyundai A- League. Clement Tito identifies what he’d swipe right, and what he’d definitely swipe left.

Swipe Right: Bruno Fornaroli

Now evident to be one of the greatest captures in Hyundai A-League history, his attitude and philosophy is key. Listening to him speak about his positive and inspiring mentality, it’s clear that it reflects in his performances. Fornaroli has been consistent all season, opening the scoring against Western Sydney last Saturday with a peach. Even when he isn’t banging them in, it looks like he plays with a degree of urgency regularly.

Swipe Right: Archie Thompson

Please, don’t hang up the boots. Seen as a god by Victory fans yet hated by rival supporters, Archie came back against Melbourne City on the brink of Christmas.

Thompson has played exceptional football since his return not only getting into the right positions, but looking very agile. As far as 2015-16 goes for Victory, Archie is still important to team up with an under pressure Besart Berisha.

Swipe Right: Marcelo Carrusca

One of the most entertaining players to watch in the A-League, he put in a best on park performance in Adelaide’s downing of Perth Glory.

Carrusca was the pinnacle to United’s goals but did so in an entertaining manner with maneuvering that was easy on the eyes. United are slowly regaining their place on the table and Carrusca will play another important role to thwart the Mariners this Saturday.

Swipe Left: Ambiguous Officiating

Make your own mind up when Western Sydney’s goal was disallowed against Melbourne City. Whether it was the correct decision or not, Jarred Gillet had called for play and the Wanderers scored. It seems laughable that you can blow the whistle but change your mind to pull play back because the linesman believed it was an error. Situations like this happen all over the world, but happens in the A-League far too often.
