Adelaide v Melbourne Feb 10
Two massive games today. It's 4 v 3 at Adelaide Arena and time to "kick a Vic" It's a simple equation for both teams.
Melbourne: Top spot is yours if you want it.
Adelaide: Your destiny is in your hands. If you win today, you will finish fourth, if you lose, you have a second bite of the cherry, but who wants a second bite?
Melbourne will be looking to regain top spot after ceding it to Sydney a few days ago, so they need to silence the crowd early. Since coming off the bench CG43 has not changed his output, but Melbourne have only lost one game. There's no real chink in United's armour. Ware, Boone, Kennedy, Barlow, McCarron, Goulding. They would form a formidable boy band, but it is the support act that shows the real depth of the team. The Pledgehammer has lifted since heading to United. Moller is a handy asset, and hooley dooley, Peter Hooley is rocking that hipster beard so well he could pass for a Barista from Brunswick in the off season.
Melbourne beat Adelaide in Adelaide last time they met, but Adelaide was missing one man. Moore, Ramone Moore. He's back, baby. Every time has a bogie team and each team has a bogie player. Moore is Melbourne's bogie man.
Melbourne go in as the bookie's favourite, but this will get down to who is more desperate. An Adelaide win today almost guarantees Perth will finish top spot. Surely the Sixers wouldn't give up a finals spot just to annoy the floppy cats? That's why the Red Army is right behind the Sixers, so I expect all you Red Army members to cheer every Adelaide point because every point our brave men score, we do it for you knowing we can help you get top spot. While watching at home, we need you to boo every United FTA, send positive thoughts to the Sixers and get out your voodoo dolls of United players.
C'mon Adelaide, how badly do you want 4th spot?
