A scrappy draw on the road is just what you need to stay on top of the table this week.

The only frustration about the Ahlawi’s so far this domestic season is the number of bye weeks they have had.

Did not outperform the pride of Abu Dhabi considering the manner in which they conceded two, but, well, the third goal happened. Even better, Nilmar happened.

The Power Rankings were so focused on the adventures of Baniyas that we forgot about Emirates and the shockwaves they are sending across the league, currently.

Put on perhaps the best performance of the week, with the Brazilian pair of Fabio Lima and Edgar, deserving a round of applause.

Sure, earning a draw against league champions is a good thing, but anyone else believe Baniyas’ performance has plateaued? Perhaps, that’s a good thing?

Al Fujairah: Does a win on the road against a team like Al Wahda mean you deserve to move up a few spots? OF COURSE.

With the form ex-Man City player Jo is currently displaying, it will be an interesting matchup in the battle of the Ittihad (Al Ahli and Al Shabab are on either sides of the godforsaken Ittihad highway).

Javier Aguirre is looking for answers all across the field but one thing is for certain – count Al Wahda officially out of the title race.

Is it time to worry if you are a Jazrawi? Probably would not after Mabkhout’s double based on pressure play but crumbled they did. We will reevaluate their credibility after a few more games against stronger teams.

HIGH: 6 | LOW: 11
Latest result: Lost against Al Nasr 2-3

Out-classed, out-played, out-brained. To sum it up – out brazilian-ed

Sure they beat Champions Al Ain last week in the AG Cup, but their apparently average play came back to bite them as they underwent a humbling experience by fellow bottom dwellers – Al Shaab.
LAST WEEK: 13
HIGH: 7 | LOW: 14
Latest result: Draw against Al Shaab 1-1
Next AGL match: Away at Al Fujairah (11/27)

At this point, who cares how they do in the league? Everything is focused on surviving. Well, not sure about that either. Bumped there merely on the performances of the club to follow.

Obviously, a team missing the spark of last season while playing horrifyingly awful. Especially when this happens (Watch the first 10 seconds). By the end of it all, the look on Paulo Bonamigo suggested that the team-talk had something coming.

    Al Ahli did not play any games this week. But two tough games this week against Shabaab and Jazira. If they win, they are Champions automatic.

    Jazira do not know where to spend money. Farfaan and Neves are nothing. Not helping the team.

  3. Amit Savnani Reply

    It’s really shocking on how Al Jazira is performing this season. Did not really anticipate this bad. Hope their fortunes change.
