A turnaround Grand Final rematch, Tim Cahill’s goal on debut and an unlikely comeback from the Newcastle Jets all point to the 2016/17 season being one of the best yet.

Here are the four takeaways dished up during the second round of the A-League, sure to get Adelaide fans revving as their Championship winning team gets off to a slow start.

Tim Cahill is the chicken cashew of Melbourne City; stunning and reliable

In one astonishing half volley kick from 35 metres out, Cahill quickly justified Melbourne City’s decision to sign the Aussie favourite by replicating his freakish World Cup talent in a single move.  

Having taken some time to return to Australia, Cahill had many questioning both his age and motivations coming into his debut A-League match.

Following his standout delivery, doubters were sent packing as Cahill lead Melbourne into a strong two game lead on the ladder, alongside Sydney FC.

Newcastle Jets for finals football an outside chance of home delivery

Entering the season with an impressive one-all draw against defending champs Adelaide United, followed by a 4-0 beating on the Brisbane Roar, the Newcastle Jets look to be making a promising return.

With a miserable 2015 season from the Jets winning just 8 of 27 games, the team appears to be turning a fresh leaf with new Head Coach Mark Jones alongside collecting an inaugural victory.

On the other hand, Brisbane Roar now have plenty to prove after conceding three goals in just 23 minutes following the half time break.

Plenty of specials on offer

The first two rounds have drawn an astounding 33 goals in ten matches, following last season’s record breaking goal trend.

Five games have already accrued whopping figures with four or more points on the board and three games finishing with 4-0 full time sweeps.

While such numbers are likely to pull ratings, some football fans have been left scratching their heads over this seasons defence and lack of strategy by coaches.

Déjà vindaloo for Adelaide United

Similar to their slow start in the 2015 season, defending champs Adelaide United have had a rough first two games leading into Round Three.

While fans will be quick to point out last season’s grand final winning turnaround, they can’t deny that Adelaide FC’s defence is yet to show up.  

Hopefully they can turn it around against Melbourne Victory this weekend, who they are currently tied with at two points on the ladder.  

Round Three promises to be an action packed week of A-League football with several teams fighting for their first victory on home soil and others working to rack their first win of the season overall.

If you can’t make it to a game this weekend, order in and make a night of it.
