Day Date Venue Opposition Result F A Scorers Memories
Sat Oct 6 home Sydney FC win 2 0 S. Huysegems, L. Fenton Prematch hype over Del Piero debut for Sydney, over shadowed by dominant Nix, Louis Fenton's diving header, Manny outstanding in midfield, both assists.
Sun Oct 14 away Melbourne Heart draw 1 1 P. Ifill (pen) Seven players missing (internationals), four on debut, Spoonley good in goal, one on one save from Fred, red card Colossimo handled Smith's header on line.
Sun Oct 21 home Brisbane Roar draw 1 1 Huysegems Durante ill, Nix started well but faded. Pasty good saves.
Sat Oct 27 away Adelaide Utd loss 1 3 Huysegems Robbed. Stein calm finish. Brockie goal ruled out. Adelaide score offside goal. Siggy red card after jeronimo dives. Durante livid in post match interview.
Mon Nov 5 away Melbourne Victory loss 2 3 J. Brockie (2) Ripped open by 21st birthday boy Marco Judas Rojas and Archie Thompson. Poor performance for 60 min, then two good Brockie goals.
Sun Nov 11 home Central Coast M loss 0 1   A pigeon kept walking around in our penalty area! Few chances created.
Sun Nov 18 away Newcastle Jets win 3 0 Brockie (2), Ifill (pen) Not many thrills until Brocks scored from Ifill cross, then got a header, their keeper stretchered off saving a third. Benji Totori got away, brought down penalty. Late he rounded keeper but missed.
Sat Nov 24 away Perth Glory draw 1 1 Brockie Even hard fought game. Paston two good saves. Bloody Smeltz scored for Perth then Brockie robbed and chipped Pantelidis before slotting through the keeper's legs. Leo turning into a good defender.
Sun Dec 2 home Western Sydney win 1 0 Brockie Windy Wellington! Wind blew Brockie's cross in to goal! Dura handball not spotted in box. Poor crowd of 5000
Sun Dec 9 home Sydney FC loss 1 2 Brockie (pen) Bottom of table Sydney were the better team. Poor performance. Leo doing well at right back.
Sun Dec 16 away Adelaide Utd loss 1 3 D. Sanchez Good attacking, soft goals conceded. Goal wrongly ruled out for off side. Their first goal came straight from indirect free kick! Tyler Boyd good as sub, set up Sanchez. Boyd had late penalty brilliantly double saved. Doh!
Sat Dec 22 home Central Coast M draw 1 1 Sanchez Another paltry crowd 5900. Poor crosses. Totori cross for Dani header.Ifill had ankle surgery, out for 6+ weeks. Tyler Boyd start.
Thur Dec 27 home Melbourne Heart win 3 2 Fenton, Brockie 2 ( 1 pen) 2 - 0 down in ten minutes. Controlled the game after that. Lia robbed ball, fed Louis for good finish.
Tues Jan 1 away Brisbane Roar loss 1 2 Brockie Fenton misses, Brockie's screamer goal, then chest volley saved. Paston's three top drawer saves. Boyd red carded, Leo concussed, finished with 9 men.
Sat Jan 5 away Melbourne Victory loss 0 2   Manny and Boyd suspended. A good opening 40 min. Bloody Marco assist and goal.
Sun Jan 13 home Western Sydney loss 0 2   Stein hit bar, Windy, Playing out from back ouch! Poor second half again.
Sat Jan 19 away Sydney FC loss 1 7 B. Sigmund Stein missed three good chances, then Sydney had a purple patch, including a penalty that was a total injustice, to lead 5 - 0 at half time. Del Piero showed his class with four. Siggy showed our hoha strikers (we had more shots on goal than them) how to score.
Sun Jan 27 home Newcastle Jets draw 1 1 Fenton Manny back after 3 week suspension, Ifill making a difference, led against ten men, then Lochie red card, Heskey scored. Lots of media crap with Gareth Morgan's comments.
Sat Feb 2 Auck Perth Glory win 1 0 Brockie 11000 in Auckland, plenty of chants between local and Wellington fans, also chants directed at Gareth's comments "If you're pathetic and you know it clap your hands..." Nice Brockie header, Cernak long shot after their keeper up for a late corner, was cleared off the line.
Thur Feb 7 away Central Coast M loss 0 5   Good battle in first half, Brockie header cleared off line. Capitulated in second half. Siggy and Leo missing.
Sun Feb 17 away Brisbane Roar loss 0 2   Corey Gameiro goal ruled out on debut, created chances, but a few soft bits of defending. Fenton impressive work rate. Moss given a go in goal.
Sun Feb 24 home Adelaide Utd draw 2 2 Brockie, C. Gameiro Gameiro robbed keeper for Brockie, then scored himself
Wed Feb 27 home Newcastle Jets loss 1 2 Brockie Ricki Herbert resigned as coach on Monday, Greenie in charge, but defensive lapses, Brockie volley after Gameiro shot blocked. Only 4000 attend. Oh Dear.
Sun Mar 3 Duned Melbourne Heart win 1 0 Brockie Indoors in Dunedin, Grenie swaps Manny and Leo's positions. Jezza, Stein (twice) hit the woodwork, Ifill cross to Jezza volley. Goal!! Siggy header bounces over bar. A deserved win.
Sun Mar 10 away Western Sydney lost 1 2 Brockie Gave away two penalties, God knows why Lia stuck his hand out for the second one. Brockie hit bar late in game.
Sun Mar 17 away Perth Glory win 2 1 Ifill, Huysegems Moss some great saves. Brockie both assists. Stein got a header! A really good team performance. Ifill's back!
Sun Mar 31 home Melbourne Victory lost 2 3 Huysegems, Brockie Pasty's last game. Down 2 - 0, great chest and volley from Stein, one min later Brockie gets his 16th for the season, to come second in golden boot, not bad for team that is last on table, then heartbreak when Victory scored in last five mins.
