I am a big football fan who was reading article after article about the Premier League on The Guardian one day and began to wonder why this same sort of analysis and opinion was lacking online for my own homegrown football, the Australian Hyundai A-League.

The A-League is now stepping out of its infancy and establishing itself in Australia’s sporting culture. And I for one say it’s about time!

For me, the growing rivalries and derbies, the active and passionate involvement of fans, as well as Australia’s growing place in world football are signalling the creation of an Australian football identity that is worthy of support.

My hope is that this blog becomes a focal point for Australian A-League talk (ad nauseum) and gives anyone and everyone a place to impart meaningful wisdom/sprout useless garbage (as dependent on the club you support) as they so desire.

Long live Australian football!
