A-League: Brisbane Roar Focus

Brisbane Roar have been at the wrong end of the A-League ladder for the last few seasons, but will be hoping for a brighter 2023/24 season with a new coach at the helm.

Ross Aloisi was handed the position back in May, and after getting in a full pre-season with his squad, will be looking forward to the start of the new campaign.

Brisbane are priced at 21.00 to win the 2023/24 A-League grand final, but they will be hoping to climb the ladder and possibly force their way into the top six.

Let’s take a closer look at Brisbane Roar ahead of the new season.

Proud A-League history

It is not that long ago since Roar were the dominant team in the A-League when winning three grand finals in the space of four years.

Those wins came in 2011, 2012 and 2014 and the first two were under the guidance of coach Ange Postecoglou, who has since made his way to Tottenham in the English Premier League.

Mike Mulvey was at the helm as Roar won the grand final in 2014, but they have been on a slippery slope since then.

Warren Moon did take Brisbane to fourth on the ladder in his first full season but could not keep it going, and he was eventually axed midway through last term.

Ross Aloisi took the reins in May, and after being an assistant coach with Roar under brother John in the past, he will now get the chance to pull all the strings in the top job.

Transfer news

Roar thought they had pulled off a huge coup in the build up to last season when signing former QPR and Southampton striker Charlie Austin to a two-year deal.

However, the move did not go according to plan and his contract was cancelled by mutual consent early in the season.

So far Brisbane appear to have learnt their lesson and there have been no big marquee signings so far this pre-season.

Instead they have turned to players that are seasoned A-League performers.

Alex Parsons, Matt Acton and Florin Berenguer arrive from Sydney FC, Melbourne Victory and Melbourne City respectively.

One interesting signing is the capture of Shae Cahill, who arrives from the Everton Academy in England.

Shae is the son of Socceroos and Everton legend, Tim Cahill, and if he turns out to be anything like his dad, Brisbane have landed a gem.

Opening fixtures

If Brisbane are to make progress in the season ahead, it is important they get off to a good start.

They begin the campaign with a tough away trip to Macarthur FC on Saturday 21st October. Roar will fancy their chances of getting the win though and are priced at 2.70 to do just that.

Macarthur are priced at 2.37, while the draw is 3.60.

Next up will be a home game against Sydney FC, while the first game of November will see them travel to take on Wellington Phoenix.

Roar then have a tough trip to take on reigning premiers Central Coast Mariners, before wrapping up November with a home game against Perth Glory.
