Brisbane Roar kept themselves in contention for the A-league title after yet another comeback victory during this weekend.
The 2-1 win over Newcastle Jets keeps the team one point ahead of Adelaide United. Manager John Aloisi was extremely happy with the resilience and the character shown by his players. Following a goalless first half, Newcastle opened the scoring through a penalty by Leonardo. Brisbane Roar received a major break in the game when Boogaard was sent off with a straight red card in the 65th minute. The penalty that he conceded was then converted by Henrique Silva two minutes later.
From then on, Brisbane started dominating the game and it was not long before they took the lead through Broich. The home team then held off for yet another three points that puts them closer towards the title. This victory also means that Brisbane will not be finishing lower than fourth in the table this season. Hence, they will be guaranteed a major semi-final in front of their supporters or a place in the elimination final. Aloisi says that the character of the players came to prominence, as they never seemed to give up even when the odds were against them. Brisbane dominated the game from start to finish and created 12 shots on target with 58% possession. Continue reading ‘Brisbane Roar kept themselves in Competitionrgb’

The Brazilian born winger of Brisbane Roar, Henrique originally joined Brisbane Roar back in 2009 with the purpose of serving as a backup option for Reinaldo but Henrique has slowly been getting more and more playing time in the main team of the Australian side.
Henrique still hasn’t turned into one of the most influential or important players in the team of John Aloisi as his playing time is limited but even though he is mainly serving as a substitute and back-up option in the Australian outfit, Henrique has stated that he wants to stay with the club for as long as possible.
The contract of Henrique is reaching it’s last stages as it only has around 6 months before expiring and the Brazilian born performer is hoping that what he has accomplished so far has been enough to impress the manager John Aloisi and offer the 30 year old player a new contract.
“Every week I’ve been scoring goals. I am not sure about contracts now. I am just essentially on my football and I’m pretty sure if I keep playing like I have been, the contract will sort out. For me, for my family, it is a big thing. I am really happy to be Australian,” Henrique said.
The 30 year old player wants to continue working hard in Brisbane Roar and eventually seal a consistent spot in the main lineup of John Aloisi, this is something that he has failed to do despite having joined the Australian outfit over 5 years ago.

A lot of fans have been extremely negative about the appointment of John Aloisi as the new manager of Brisbane Roar.
The 39-year-old has limited experience as a manager, while his one year spell with Melbourne Heart was not very successful either. However, he will now lead the team after being appointed as the replacement for Mike Mulvey.Mulvey had been in charge of the team from December 2012 and had one of the highest win ratios amongst any former Brisbane Roar managers. The two-year reign ended in November 2014 and it has been a difficult year for the club.
The struggles have once again been demonstrated in this season, as the club has managed only one win in the last four matches. This run of form sees them list placed just outside the top six in the seventh spot. The club friendlies for the upcoming campaign have just begun and fans are not confident aboutAloisi leading the team. The 39-year-old suffered a whopping 24 defeats in his 39 games as the manager of Melbourne Heart. Fans do not expect this to improve even after managing a top team like Brisbane Roar.Aloisi, though, says that he made a few mistakes in that first managerial job, but is hoping for a much better performance at Brisbane.

Brisbane Roar has found the going a little tough in the Australian top league in the ongoing season.
They are not at the top of the table where they are quite used to be at in the recent times, but, one of their Premier players, James Donachie, is not so disappointed with it.
Donachie reckons being at the first position is a lot tougher than being lower down the table.
According to the centre half, when you are at the top of the tree, you are in the sight of all the teams and they want to go hard at you, beat you somehow and snatch the points. You are always sort of under that extra bit of pressure which you might not feel if you are at 5 or 6.
Though, Donachie admits that ideally everyone wants to be sitting at the top, but, he emphasizes that if you are not there, the pressure is not on you. It’s on the team which is leading the table.
The Nix (Wellington Phoenix) is the A-League topper team at the moment and the Roar has to face them this Friday.
The Suncorp Stadium is the venue that will be hosting that game. Continue reading ‘Brisbane Roar going a little tough in the Australian top leaguergb’
