Undisputed Champions

Yesterday afternoon along with 51.1 thousand others I was at Suncorp Stadium to see my beloved Brisbane Roar become the Most Successful Club in Hyundai A-League history.

Brisbane Roar are the first club to claim 3 Championships.  Along with that we hold 2 premierships, doing the double in 10/11 and now in 13/14.

There were a lot of highlights in the game yesterday form both sides, as well as standout performances.

I want to congratulate the Wanderers, making back to back grand finals is a feat in itself, let alone in the first 2 years of existence!  I also want to pay tribute to the travelling Red and Black Bloc fans who showed up in numbers yesterday to try and bring some of the 'Wanderland' atmosphere to Suncorp.

Thomas Broich once again proved he is the best import the A-League has seen with his well timed fee kick finding fellow import Besart Berisha for the Roar's first goal.
Bes has been a standout for the club in his 3 seasons here, and we will miss him greatly now he has headed off to Melbourne Victory, I just hope in the time he has been here he has taught Michael Theo how to stop him when he is in on goal.

Most Successful Club in the Hyundai A-League
I will admit that after the poor start we had to season 12/13 under Rado after the departure of Ange, I was less than impressed when the club appointed Mike Mulvey as Head Coach, but I am more than happy to stick my hand up and say I was wrong.  Mulvey has been the leader the club needed and in his 1.5 seasons took us from the depths to the semi final in 12/13 and then to runaway Premiers and then Champions in 13/14.

Brisbane fans rejoice for once again we are the Champions, Wanders fans take heart, you were a formidable opponent and I believe using this loss as motivation you can continue the strong showing in the ACL and go far in that competition.
