A-League: Perth Glory Focus

Perth Glory have had a tough time of it in recent seasons and they could be in for another season of struggle in the 2023/24 A-League campaign.

Glory have not made finals since the 2019/20 campaign and have been on a slippery slope with issues on and off the pitch.

They managed to finish in ninth spot on the ladder last season, which was a big improvement on the wooden spoon they picked up the year before.

The club remains in a far from stable position going into the new season and, along with Newcastle Jets, they are one of the hot fancies to finish at the bottom of the ladder.

Glory can be backed at 4.00 to pick up the wooden spoon.

A-League history

Perth Glory have had a tough time over the last couple of seasons and it remains uncertain times for them.

They parted company with coach Ruben Zadkovich at the end of last season, while Tony Sage also stepped down as chairman.

It means the Australian Professional Leagues is now in charge and has appointed receivers to oversee the sale of the club’s licence to a new owner.

That is an on-going issue, but the in the meantime the club’s future is safe and they can look forward to the 2023/24 A-League season.

Glory have yet to win a grand final, but went close in 2018/19 when they lost to Sydney FC in the big dance.

Finishing in the top six this season would be a remarkable achievement and they can be backed at 5.00 to get there.

Stajcic takes up the reins

Glory have made a solid appointment on the managerial front, with the experienced Alen Stajcic taking charge for the season ahead.

The 49-year-old was the coach of Central Coast Mariners between 2019 and 2021 and led them all the way to a grand final before moving on to a fresh challenge.

It may be tough times for Glory, but at least they are in safe hands with Stajcic at the helm.

The appointments of the less experienced Richard Garcia and Zadkovich did not work out, and they will be hoping for better with Stajcic.

Perth Glory's transfer activity

Due to the ownership issues with the club, Glory have been unable to push the boat out in the off-season.

However, they have strengthened with a number of players who have been there and done it in the A-League.

Aleksandar Susnjar has arrived from Macarthur FC, along with Oliver Bozanic, who is on loan for Western Sydney Wanderers.

Bruce Kamau and Riley Warland will also be in the Glory squad for next season.

Perth Glory's opening fixtures

Glory kick off the new campaign with a massive home against the Newcastle Jets.

Newcastle, like Glory, could be in for a tough season, so it is crucial the home side begin with a massive three points.

They can be backed at 2.10 to do just that, while Newcastle are available at 3.25. The draw can be backed at 3.50.

Three of the next four games are away from home, with trips to take on Wellington Phoenix, Western Sydney Wanderers and Brisbane Roar on the horizon.

In between is a home game with the Central Coast Mariners, so all in all, it is a tough looking start for Glory.
