With Aussie youngsters set for more game time in the upcoming A-League season, Australian coaches are more important that ever. A grand final rematch and two derbies are set to feature in the first round of the new A-League season.
Adelaide United are happy to back a trio of rookie goalkeepers for the upcoming A-League season. A lack of matches nearly led to Graham Arnold quitting as Socceroos and Olyroos coach last month.
FFA have acted on it. A former Melbourne Victory midfielder and Australia youth international has quit professional football at the age of just 22 due to anxiety caused by online abuse.
Josh Hope, a former Australian youth international, has quit professional football at a young age due to online abuse.
Sydney FC star Luke Brattan has been recognised for his effort to raise funds for his sister and other leukaemia sufferers.

Adelaide United has appointed former Reds captain Ross Aloisi as an assistant coach. Having impressed in an interim capacity, Carl Veart has been appointed Adelaide United coach for the next two seasons.
Football Federation Australia boss James Johnson has a huge mess to clean up in order to settle on a new CBA between A-League clubs and players, as disturbing details emerge over the growing unrest.

The Sydney FC dynasty has delivered six trophies in the past four seasons. If two or more teams are level on points, the following criteria are applied in order until one of the teams can be determined as the higher ranked: .
The top six clubs at the conclusion of the regular season progress to the finals series. The club that wins the grand final is presented with the A-League Trophy.
The finals series consists of six teams who are placed by rank, as determined at the end of the regular season. The finals series runs over three weeks, with all games being sudden death, leading to a sudden-death grand final to decide the overall A-League competition.
The first and second placed teams at the conclusion of the regular season are rewarded with a bye in the first week of the Finals Series and the advantage of hosting each of their semi-finals in the second week of the finals series.
Of the two grand finalists, the team that finished higher on the ladder at the conclusion of the regular season hosts the grand final.
The only exception to this is if the FFA deems that team's home ground to be an inappropriate. A-League clubs are eligible for participation in the AFC Champions League competition each season since the edition of the tournament.

Both pieces of silverware were designed by Sydney design company D3 Design. Clive Solari of D3 Design explained the trophy's design, saying "We wanted our trophy concept to embody the historical significance of sport in a contemporary design.
So we looked to history to see how great achievements have been rewarded across all types of games for thousands of years.
The winners of the world's original sporting competition, the Olympic Games , were presented with a laurel wreath on their heads.
We used this model as a basis for a unique, cutting-edge design — our trophy is a modern and versatile translation of the wreath.
The winners can hold it above their heads as a symbol of success". The A-League match-day squad includes the typical 11 players, and five substitutes of which one must be a goalkeeper.
