This sea­son will be dif­fer­ent to last be­cause ... last sea­son we lost one of our most im­por­tant, cre­ative mid­field­ers in Karim Mat­mour seven games in. This sea­son we now have two ex­pe­ri­enced cre­ative mid­field­ers in Ken Ilso and Mirko Boland. I just hope that they can adapt quickly. Ade­laide’s key player is ... Boland. From his great de­but in the FFA Cup, you can see he is a calm, tech­ni­cal and cre­ative mid­fielder who will hope­fully be a great ad­di­tion for the front third. Ade­laide’s most un­der­rated player is ... Ryan Ki‡o. His pace and turns are a night­mare for de­fend­ers. One change you would make to the club? Re­cruit­ing a CEO that is able to be‡er en­gage with the fans. We cur­rently have an in­terim CEO. As a fan, I want a sta­ble CEO.

The player you’d hap­pily drive to an­other club is ... No dis­re­spect, but Michael Mar­rone. He is past his best and is a great squad player, but I’d rather see young Ryan Strain start and develop be­cause he has bags of po­ten­tial and can also play in mid­field.

This sea­son United will fin­ish ...

Go­ing by all other teams’ squads, I would put AUFC fin­ish­ing third or fourth.
