A-League 2009/10 Season - Round 12 Predictions

A good week tipping-wise in the A-Aleague last week, getting 3 of the results correct.  Interesting to hear Foxsports commentators Simon Hill and Robbie Slater comment during a game last week on how hard it was to pick winners in the A-League, something I've been saying since the start of the season.

I'm not sure the unpredicatble nature is a good thing for the health of the league - indeed when Melbourne Victory were taking all before them in the 2006/07 season the crowds grew game after game, to the point where they drew 50,000 fans for a home-and-away match against Sydney.  We won't be seeing that repeated again in a hurry.

Anyway despite the tough nature in picking winners, last weeks good results see us move into the top 5% of all tippers on footytips (as we have with the Eniglish Premier League).  Another interesting round this week - we've tipped Newcastle via the slimmest of margins against Central Coast, although given they only have to travel an hour up the road and Newcastle's crowd numbers have been dwindling, I wouldn't expect the home ground advantage to be as strong as in other circumstances.  We've also tipped the Gold Coast away to Wellington, who have had a very strong home record this season.
