Fearless A-League Predictions for Season 8
- Premiers and the table at R27 (2012/2013)

Prior to the Pre-Season Cup kicking off our team of HAL writers at BOTN (across Australia and NZ) were asked to lock in their predictions for the season. They were asked to give each of the ten teams in this year's A-League competition a final position placing after the 27 rounds, from 1st to 10th!

Our team picked all over the shop again, but with - Melbourne Victory as Premiers, Brisbane, Central Coast and Sydney ahead of the pack - and Wellington, new boys Western Sydney and the Heart (with the spoon) looking shaky!

On a consolidated basis we predict that the end of season table (might be):

    Club BOTN Team Ranking Highest
    Melbourne Victory FC 1st 1 8
    Brisbane Roar FC 2nd 1 7
    Central Coast Mariners FC 3rd 1 7
    Sydney FC 4th 1 6
    Perth Glory FC 5th 1 7
    Adelaide United FC 6th 2 9
    Newcastle Jets FC 7th 4 8
    Wellington Phoenix FC 8th 6 10
    Western Sydney Wanderers FC 9th 7 10
    Melbourne Heart FC 10th 4 10

    Methodology: Each writer gives places all the teams 1-10, and the team with the lowest average placing is the 1st on the table. Equal results if any are separated by finding the median score for that team. Look how far we were out last two years:

  • Last season [ BOTN Fearless Predictions 11/12 ... ]

  • Previous season [ BOTN Fearless Predictions 10/11 ... ]

Don't be surprised if we are wrong! We certainly won't be!
