I watched that amazing semi final on TV last night.  Glory 2-0 up in the 73rd minute only for Adelaide United to score twice, the equaliser coming in the dying moments of injury time.  This forced 30 minutes of extra time for Glory to take the lead only to see Adelaide equalise again.  So a penalty shootout was then required to settle it.  You would have had to have watched it to appreciate how bizarre that was, I've never seen a shootout quite like that one.
Thankfully Perth glory triumphed in the end (5-4 on penalties).  An amazing game to have watched.  Now for the Grand Final at Perth Stadium next weekend.  Go Glory!

That's why you don't need to score lots in soccer there are games within games to keep it interesting and due to the lower scoring than in other sports a game can get turned on its head in five minutes.
Good luck to the GLORY🏆🏆

I never thought that a game of A league soccer could grab me , but Friday nights did.

I turned over at times during the football to see how things were going.Was confident when I saw one , nil, then two nil.Even happy at two one.But was deflated when they score with six seconds to go.
The extra time provided plenty of excitement as well. But the shoot out was very tense. Just how good were the two keepers.Especially the Glory keeper. And to step up to the line and take a penalty was very courageous of him.To plant it into the back of the net was superb.
A game I am not totally involved with , but because they are a WA side , I take notice. Only one WA side I couldn't give two hoots about.
Well played to both sides.

I attended the A-League Grand Final yesterday.  On the whole it was a match of high standard, what one would expect from the two top clubs, neither giving their opponent an inch.  I felt very flat after the pathetic showing in the shootout (not an ideal way to settle an important match) and it was a disappointing end to a season where Perth Glory dominated right through.  Sydney won the shootout 4-1 to take the Toilet Seat back east.

As my friend said as we walked from the ground: They won't be remembered for winning the Premiers' Plate, but they will be remembered for losing the Grand Final.

Not to worry.  It's a first world problem in the grand scheme of things.
