Personally, I would prefer it if MC won this, mainly because I prefer it when a team wins the double. Less debate over who the best side of the year was. If I were a betting man, my money would be on WU to win this one though. They are just too strong at the back and Young has been in some seriously good form this finals series. If it comes down to pens, WU will win for sure.
If WU does win it, I'll be a little torn though. I dislike WU immensely, however I do like Aloisi and it would be great to see him finally achieve some success as a coach.

It depends on whether the WU of the latter part of the season comes out to play or the WU of last Saturday night comes out to play. But they do defend very well and I can’t see the likes of McLaren getting many chances. Got a feeling the game could be decided by a set piece goal or penalties.

Real prediction: 1-1 draw, then City score the decisive goal in extra time
Cursed prediction: 1-0 Western. City dominates the game but can't score. A Tom Glover fumble causes the deciding goal

Agreed. Aloisi has done surprisingly well this season and has turned WU around after last season's inconsistent performance, but I would rather the premiers win it.

The crowd will be 14,347.

City have no fans so they'll get a few more thousand theatre goers rock up.  Western United obviously have no fans so they'll have an extra 1,500-2000 theatregoers show up.  

Definitely no more than 15,000.

You could be right. Apparently 12k tickets sold so far.

Honestly the only good result would be having the match abandoned. 

Seriously though,  If it's ends in the 90 it'll be Western United,  120 it'll be City. Penalties and United win it. 

Wouldn't be surprised if the referee decides it though,  seems to be the theme. 

It could actually be an epic match. It really needs to be simply due to the lack of atmosphere.

Personally I actually really like John Aloisi, love the way he talks about the game and I think he's been hard done by (to an extent) in the past,  I will hope United win because of him.

I'm a Jets fan, City member, and I'll be there not really supporting either team tbh. I think the crowd will be surprisingly decent, I know a fair few casuals who will be attending.

Don't WU have something like 9k paid up members according to their totally legitimate CEO. Surely they are all real people who will attend their clubs GF right? ALL AbuDabi Doo needs to do is bring all their  thousands of  paid up members, plus the thousands of neutrals who are bound to turn up, should be 30k easy.
