It was a bad weekend for goalkeepers in the A-League, with not one of 10 shot-stoppers recording a clean sheet. Melbourne Heart's Andrew Redmayne and Vedran Janjetovic of Sydney FC made mistakes that led to goals at AAMI Park on Friday night, while Mark Birighitti should have done better on the Wanderers' second goal at a day later at Hunter Stadium, where Ante Covic was guilty of trying to break Adam Taggart in half with a challenge after the final whistle.
Brisbane Roar's Michael Theo gave away a penalty on Sunday, so with those slim pickings in mind, we've gone for Danny Vukovic, who was blameless when he conceded from the spot at home in a 1-1 draw with Melbourne Victory on Friday night.
William Gallas performed well at centre-back in that game until suffering another injury, and gets the nod in the middle of our three-man backline. Matthew Spiranovic was a strong performer in midfield for the Wanderers during their 2-2 draw with the Jets, and is pushed back into a more familiar defensive role. Adama Traore returned to the Victory line-up and acquitted himself well at nib Stadium as the navy blue and whites banished some of their recent defensive woes.
Thomas Broich is the proud owner of a semi-permanent berth on the left side of our A-League Team of the Week's midfield, and sits there again after pulling the strings in a 2-1 win over the Mariners. Tom Rogic occupies the other flank thanks to a strong performance in his first start in Victory colours. Jonatan Germano also made his first start for the season after returning to fitness and was instrumental in Melbourne Heart's 2-1 home win over Sydney FC.
Aaron Mooy was a busy, effective presence for the Wanderers away to the Jets, and netted the visitors' equaliser with a brilliant free-kick on the stroke of half-time.
On one side of a front three is two-goal Jets forward Adam Taggart, with Besart Berisha, scorer of the winner against the Mariners, through the middle. Wide left is David Williams, responsible for a memorable solo effort in the final moments to win the game for Heart against Sydney. Down to 10 men and scarcely expected to push for all three points, Williams' moment of individual brilliance undoubtedly calls for a Carlsberg.
