Rhyme Six of the Hyundai A-League

-

We’re six weeks through on this wonderful trip

United sit bottom with the Roar at the tip

City has peppered but are yet to show

What their potential can bring, however they continue to grow

The Phoenix showed determination in their win over Adelaide

They went down a goal early before starting their invade

Bonevacia scored a double while Krishna scored one

And then Ridenton made it four boy did he have some fun

The Phoenix fans rejoiced as the full time whistle blew

There were smiles and solidarity, a belief this club can stay too

For Adelaide hope is fading and this team now looks dejected

The buildup play is unstable and their defence disconnected

Fast forward to Saturday where the Big Blue was in full swing

The Sky Blues were impressive early before the Victory finished with a ching

Besart Berisha was a constant threat and a danger the defence perceived

But despite their efforts to contain, the Albanian still deceived

His second goal at the death was a warning sign for the rest

That despite sitting third Melbourne is still the best

Muscat praised the boys for continuing with their aim

Before surprisingly actually applauding the referee’s game

On Friday night the Wanderers continued along with ease

They dispatched a hapless Newcastle with graciousness, a tease

It took the boys in Red and Black to a winning streak of three

And in terms of the A-League form guide, the Wanderers now sit top of the tree

Brisbane showed good signs while the Glory failed to finish

And the question on everyone’s lips; Will Newcastle and the Mariners push on or now diminish?

The action in Round Six was sensational and great

Continuing the brilliant football we have seen so far to date

We eagerly anticipate the next dose of football heaven

Until then Australia must sit back and await match day seven.
