Two matches two draws: Close again

Newcastle 1 v CCM 1 and Sydney 0 v Melbourne 0

Highlights are debuts of young players and overseas signings not finding their feet. Overall, looks good. Both matches had crowds of around 16,000. Which is pretty good given the Olympics is on. 

The highlight has been Kevin Muscat getting away with an after the ball chop to the back of 17 year old Chris Payne - right in the penalty box. Bold stuff indeed.

The A-League's new website is worth a look. Takes up a fair bit of bandwidth which slows things down. And the 'live' match summaries don't seem to be working yet (and are hidden). Otherwise looks great.
