Welcome to Yellow Fever!
Ah the fair fragrance of freshly-cut grass.
Wellington Phoenix's lacklustre A-League season opener highlighted their need for a proven goal-scorer but coach Ufuk Talay says it's not for a lack of trying.
Southern United remains in the mix but it was not the weekend it wanted on the futsal court.
Western United have wasted no time leaving their mark on the A-League, beating Wellington Phoenix 1-0 on their competitive debut.
Former Wellington Phoenix captain Andrew Durante was given a standing ovation by Yellow Fever, after guiding Western United to a 1-0 win over the club he captained for 11 seasons.
They were booed throughout but it was Mark Rudan and Andrew Durante who had the last laugh as Western United made a winning start to the A-League by edging their inaugural game against Wellington Phoenix.
Coach Ufuk Talay is prepared to wait until January to sign an import striker if Wellington Phoenix strike out in their search for a replacement for Roy Krishna.
