The Good, the Bad, and the Downright Ugly!

By Paul Frederickson

Another week of football and some of us will be happy and I will stay football depressed! I follow Aston Villa and the Brisbane Roar by the way...


The good is not a strong enough superlative to describe not only the feats but the way in which Barcelona play the game. Tomes will be written about the Barcelona 'way' for years to come.


In many quarters Adelaide United were seen as the favorites to win the A-League Championship and Premiership. Beaten by the bottom team, Gold Coast United, last Friday 3 nil at home was the end of Rini Coolen. Now, 12 weeks into the season they have gone back to the beginning, signing former coach John Kosmina. Restoring pride must be his first task, for the Reds have fallen so low that the only pride the supporters have seen this season was found at Adelaide Zoo.


Bah, humbug to you Mr Redknapp. No Christmas for a team that has been on Santa's good list for the past few years. No Christmas party for the high-flying spurs this year!

What do you think? What were your weekend's the Good, the Bad and the Downright Ugly!
