Whatever nerves Australian Football Weekly had left have been shredded by the drawn-out drama of the Hyundai A-League finals series. Now Sydney FC and Wellington Phoenix are out to grab the last chance for grand final glory.
The Sky Blues missed their chance at a home grand final and they-ve got no one to blame but themselves, say Stuey Musialik and Mark Bridge. Coach Vitezslav Lavicka has already got his team past the frustration and focused on the game at hand, saying, “We won-t make the same mistake”.
Phoenix cross the Ditch full of good form and brimming with self-confidence - is this their year? Leo Bertos and Tim Brown reckon it might just be.
