Adelaide United have been a very consistent side throughout the history of the A-League.
Although not winning the A-League ever they have made history as being the first Australian team to make the final of the Asian Champions League which is a massive achievement for an A-League side.
Last season they finished as runners up to arch nemesis Melbourne Victory.
Manager Aurelio Vidmar has done pretty well in the transfer department and has purchased two foreigners in the shapes of Inseob Shin from the Korean Republic and also Lloyd Owusu from English league two side Cheltenham Town who was also a Ghanaian International.
Aurelio Vidmar has also signed local boys Joe Costa and Francesco Monterosso following their performances in the Youth League last season.
As well as buying players Vidmar has also lost players none bigger than defender Sasa Ognenovski to the bigger money in the Korean League.
I predict that despite the impressive signings the manager has implemented that Adelaide United will not show enough consistency throughout the season to make the finals. So in saying that I predict a 6th place finish.
