If A-League clubs were in the AFL

-

The AFL season is in full swing and we thought it would be a good idea to see how your A-League side would resemble a team in the Aussie Rules format.

Are the similarities scary enough for you or are they off the mark in this cross-code comparison?

Adelaide United – Essendon

An exciting fast-paced team to watch on their day and when they’re on this outfit can be hard to stop. Sometimes you don’t know what you’ll get and replicating their best form every week would put them in a better position.

Brisbane Roar – Sydney Swans

Been in amongst the top positions of the table for a very long time and just get the job done by consistently being able to make the finals each season. Even if some things don’t go their way, they’ll always give themselves a chance of success.

Central Coast Mariners – St Kilda

Once had an experienced head coach who transformed their club into a strong one that made numerous finals campaigns. However, their departure has left a sizeable hole to fill and the team has since declined to the bottom half of the table without that calibre of coach.

Melbourne City – GWS Giants

A team that you should come out and watch, but don’t get the support that they really deserve. There’s been plenty of promise that’s built from their embarrassment of riches and the success that’s been craved may be just around the corner.

Melbourne Victory – Collingwood

A powerhouse team in their state and one of the heavily supported clubs in the country. They’ve developed many rivalries with fellow opposition and have proved to be a side that every team love to beat.

Newcastle Jets – Port Adelaide

Have turned things around massively to bring the fans back to their home deck. It’s incredible to think that they were once in crisis but are now a force to be reckoned with, in a stadium that has a lot of buzz compared to the dreary atmosphere it once had.

Perth Glory – Fremantle

Not only do they both reside in Western Australia and share the same team colours, but also have a superstar who if fit can dictate their team’s fortunes.  Injury has curtailed Diego Castro and Nat Fyfe but when up and running they give their side a significant boost.

Sydney FC – Geelong Cats

Boast a powerful brigade in the middle of the park that can take control of a match and when on song these midfielders can dominate against lesser opposition. Their home ground has been a fortress too where wins are difficult to achieve for travelling teams.

Wellington Phoenix – North Melbourne

Have lost their star power from previous seasons and as such have struggled to pick up the wins. On the odd occasion they can surprise with an upset but for the majority of time they’ll be known as the easy beats.

Western Sydney Wanderers – Hawthorn

After spending a long time at the top, they’re now going through a mini-rebuild in the hope that they’ll work their way back up the table in the short-term. There’s some new personnel and a fresh game style which needs patience from fans in order to adapt.
