Friday 4th May @ 8.15pm – Bentleigh Greens (2nd) vs Melbourne Knights (10th)
Won’t be at this game. Bentleigh seem to be on a bit of a roll as is expected early on. The Knights are struggling, and I have no idea why *shock horror*. Being a closet Knights fan from way back, I’m hoping the Knights will do the damage and stop the run of Bentleigh. Bentleigh give me the shits just quietly. Bentleigh Greens 1 – Melbourne Knights 2.
Friday 4th May @ 8.30pm – Oakleigh Cannons (3rd) vs Richmond Eagles (5th)
Oakleigh got a win at Gully in round four. Probably the shock of the round. Richmond parked the bus at home against South Melbourne and escaped with a 1-1 draw. Richmond didn’t impress me one iota. If anything, they are a team of panel beaters with absolutely no idea how to play the game as it’s meant to be played. I’ve always said that the coach's attitude reflects on his players, and with Chatz getting sent off early on from the bench, it’s no surprise his players are hacks. Oakleigh I have no worthy comment about. Here’s hoping for a draw with plenty of yellow and red cards. Oakleigh Cannons 0 – Richmond Eagles 0.
Friday 4th May @ 8.30pm – South Melbourne (4th) vs Southern Stars (9th)
|Keep a look out for Southern Stars' distinctive team bus this Friday.|
Saturday 5th May @ 3pm – Green Gully (7th) vs Moreland Zebras (12th)
Pack your lunch boxes. Green Gully should beat the Moreland Zebras quite comfortably. No suprises here. Only surprise would be if the Zebras steal a point or three. Can’t see it happening. Will be the shock of the season if it does. Green Gully 3 – Moreland Zebras 0.
Sunday 6th May @ 3pm – Northcote City (6th) vs Dandenong Thunder (1st)
Northcote was beaten by Morwell Pegasus last weekend 0-1 in the FFV Statewide Cup. Shock of the round. Dandenong Thunder is looking good, actually looking really good. Four games, four wins, twelve goals scored, zero conceded, twelve points. Perfect start to the season. How long will it last? All seems quiet down at the Thunderdome. Even their usual forum posters have been quiet. Opa Rok Opa Bro. However, this will be Dandy's first loss. Northcote has a thing of upsetting the runs of teams, and after their loss to Morwell Pegasus, they will be fired up to bounce back. Northcote City 2 – Dandenong Thunder 1.
Sunday 6th May @ 6pm – Heidelberg United (11th) vs Hume City (8th)
Not much chatter about this one. Heidelberg is struggling hard. Hume is doing ok. Heidelberg 1 – Hume City 3.
