And fi­nally the wait is al­most over. That ap­par­ently in­ter­minable off-sea­son that tests ev­ery Aus­tralian foot­ball fan’s pa­tience ev­ery year is draw­ing to a close. But what a sea­son lies in store this year...

Af­ter Bruno Fornaroli’s amaz­ing ex­ploits in front of goal, al­most ev­ery club has raised their game for this sea­son. When we say it will be all about goals this year, we mean it. Look at the fire­power lin­ing up this sea­son, led of course by the Soc­ceroos’ great­est-ever goalscorer, Tim Cahill. But wait, there’s Brett Hol­man’s late ar­rival at Bris­bane Roar! Tat­tooed en­fant ter­ri­ble Kerem Bu­lut and Kiwi Messi Marco Ro­jas are back to pick up where they left off. Kosta Barbarouses will plun­der for Phoenix, Bobo prom­ises great things for Sydney, as does Kokko and De­vante Clut for New­cas­tle while Adam Tag­gart re­turns for Perth Glory. And that’s on top of the usual sus­pects like Jamie Maclaren at Roar, Be­sart Berisha at Vic­tory, Andy Keogh at Glory, Morten Nord­strand at Jets, Marcelo Car­r­usca and Ser­gio Cirio for Ade­laide. And that’s even be­fore the trans­fer win­dow closes. You do want to be an A-League fan this sea­son. You don’t want to be an A-League de­fender. Bring it on... I can’t wait.
