Adelaide FFA 3 v Wellington 0

It is wrong that the FFA have pump primed Adelaide's squad to facilitate a sale and then let them run rampent over the private funding in the A-League. I suppose it wasn't their fault that the original deal fell through and then another buyer could not be found.

Still who is going to investigate whether the Van Dijk and Flores deals led to breaches of the salary cap?

Maybe the plan was for Adelaide to do well in 2009-10 Asian Cup, giving the A-League a better profile.

Adelaide are only running at about 85% of salary cap (and without a marquee). The FFA is running the club on a shoestring. Maybe, just maybe, Adelaide simply has a well managed football department that hasn't paid over the odds for average players.
