A look back on 2015

2015 has been a decidedly mixed bag for Brisbane Roar, with some good on field performances and an off-season financial saga which threatened the existence of the club. As 2015 winds down, lets look back on the year as a whole. 2015 began for the Roar in Wellington for the clubs final outing before the break for the AFC Asian Cup. A 3-0 loss to the Phoenix was indicative of the Roar’s start to their title defence and left new manager Frans Thijssen a lot of work to do in the second half of the season. That work began in…

With Christmas now officially behind us and after four straight games on the road Brisbane return to Suncorp on Sunday for the game of the round against Melbourne City.

Last week Brisbane dominated possession and territory against a defensive and overall poor Central Coast…

Round 8 Match Preview- Newcastle Jets vs. Brisbane Roar

Round 8 of the A-League see’s Brisbane travel to the Hunter to take on this season’s surprise package, Newcastle Jets. Brisbane sit top of the table right now, but they’re about to enter a testing month with four straight road trips which could go some way to defining their season. Focusing in on this game, the big key for Brisbane will be keeping wide men David Carney and Enver Alivodic quite. The wing duo have been pivotal to Newcastle’s resurgence this season –particularly Carney- so this should prove a good test for Brisbane’s improved defensive unit. From Brisbane’s attacking point…

Round 7 Preview- Brisbane Roar vs. Melbourne City

Round 7 of the A-League sees Brisbane Roar host Melbourne City in a game which will see Brisbane boss John Aloisi go up against his former side for the first time. Brisbane had to wait until the final 20 minutes to get the points against Perth on Sunday, but there was a lot to like about the Roar’s play as they controlled the game for large parts against the visiting Glory side. The goal itself illustrated the amazing depth at John Aloisi’ disposal this season, with substitutes Javier Hervas and Henrique having an almost immediate impact off the subs bench….
