ll three games to finish the season and North loses al Antworten

Veteran Brisbane Roar goalkeeper Michael Theo has declared he wants to keep playing into his 40s after producing his best A-League performance in years.Theo was Brisbanes standout in Saturdays 1-1 draw with ladder leaders Sydney FC, making five key saves to keep his side in the contest.The 35-year-old is off contract at the end of the season but says it feels good to remind people what hes capable of after two injury-wrecked years at the Roar.It was a busy day in the office. It was great to make some crucial saves, particularly in the first half, Theo told reporters on Tuesday.Particularly for me, Ive been frustrated with the past two years in terms of injury.Its just a matter of getting games under my belt and progressively, thats improving and as a team were getting better. But theres plenty more in us.It was a timely display, too, given Theo made an error last week that cost the Roar a win over Adelaide United and gave hope to back-up gloveman Jamie Young, who continues to snap at his heels.A five-time A-League championship winner, Theo says he has no intention of slowing and believes he can match the feats of older goalkeepers like Mark Schwarzer, who continued long after their outfield contemporaries have retired.Ive always done the right things on and off the field, he said.Obviously youre going to get injuries throughout your career but (for me) they came all at once.It was very frustrating but now I feel Im back to where I was. Mentally I had a bit of a freshener, physically I feel fantastic.You see the likes of Mark Schwarzer and in this league, (Thomas) Sorensen is still playing, Ante Covic played until he was 41.Theres great goalkeepers out there who have done well and if you look after yourself, theres no reason why you cant kick on.The third-placed Roar take on Western Sydney at Spotless Stadium on Friday night.NFL Jerseys China . -- The St. Johns IceCaps weathered a wild first period with the help of goaltender Jussi Olkinuora, before finding offensive inroads in the second. Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys . Neymar curled home a free kick from just outside the area to put the 2014 World Cup host ahead in the 44th minute. Three minutes after the break, a simple through pass from Paulinho freed Oscar and the Chelsea star rounded goalkeeper Jung Sung-ryong to extend Brazils lead. . As he recorded his 23rd and 24th points of the evening, a segment of the sellout Air Canada Centre crowd expressed their appreciation for the Raptors point guard with a smattering of MVP chants. Wholesale Nike NBA Jerseys . Barcelonas entertaining victory ensured the defending Spanish champions retained their share of the league lead with Atletico Madrid two rounds ahead of their meeting in the capital. Real Madrid needed a late goal by substitute Jese Rodriguez to earn a 3-2 victory at Valencia to stay in third place and three points behind its title rivals. China Jerseys Cheap . Ronaldo produced a spectacular individual performance on Tuesday, scoring all three goals and guiding Portugal into the next years World Cup in Brazil with a 3-2 victory in Sweden. The Real Madrid forward has scored 66 goals in 2013, but the last three may be the boost he needs to upstage Messi after FIFA unexpectedly extended the voting period for the Ballon dOr to Nov.For more than three months, since round six to be precise, the AFLs top eight has remained unchanged and immovable. The competition had had a two-speed feel about it, the contenders all very clear and distinct, and the up-and-comers slogging away in the bottom half of the table without threatening to upset any of the big boys.But all of that could change if St Kilda beat Sydney at Etihad Stadium this Saturday night, and Hawthorn beat eighth-placed North Melbourne. It is at that point that the Saints, non-finalists for four straight years, can actually talk up the notion of playing finals, because Norths draw is very tough (Sydney and GWS to come), while St Kilda face Richmond and the hapless Brisbane Lions to close, both winnable games.In short, if St Kilda win all three games to finish the season and North loses all three, eighth spot would change. It might be unlikely, but it is a tantalising prospect for St Kilda fans.In truth, though, it does not matter so much. Regardless of whether the Saints play finals or miss out narrowly, it has made massive strides in 2016.St Kilda has been in building mode since Ross Lyons departure in acrimony at the end of 2011, missing the finals and twice changing coaches; from Lyon to Scott Watters to Alan Richardson. It is only now that the build carries some weight.Richardson was known as a great development coach as he did the rounds of the clubs, awaiting his opportunity as a head coach. Now that he is in charge, he can apply that sense of empathy that brings out the best in players and he has been a profound success at St Kilda.Granted, his list management people have served him well in a rebirth largely built upon clever trading above all else. Look at the players from other clubs who are significant figures in this team: ruckman Tom Hickey, forwards Josh Bruce and Tim Membrey, defender Shaun Dempster and midfielder Mav Weller to mention but a few.ddddddddddddther things have fallen for Richardson, in particular the fact that his veterans have hung on well. Leigh Montagna has pulled out a great year at 32 and Nick Riewoldt is a remarkable player still at 33. Both have embraced different roles -- Montagna as a running back and Riewoldt up as far as the wing -- and played brilliantly.Significantly, you can easily identify what Richardson wants in terms of game style and that is not the case with some other new coaches. The Saints apply pressure around the football that is in the elite category, force turnovers and then run forward hard and quickly. It is a two-sided game and it has allowed St Kilda to compete with everyone this year. It has a Ross Lyon 2009 look about it.A couple of questionable umpiring decisions -- a play-on call in the game against Hawthorn in Launceston in round four and a blocking free kick against Hickey that gifted North Melbourne the match-winning goal in round seven -- will reverberate if the Saints miss the finals, as is likely. These are the what-if moments of the season, games that could have been won.But St Kilda is back as some kind of force. In 2017 it will pop the suspended Jake Carlisle into its team to plug the gaping hole in the middle of their back half, and Paddy McCartin, the No. 1 pick, will be a year older and stronger.Just how much of a force will be told this weekend. Can the Saints topple the mighty Swans? Its doubtful, but it wont die wondering. Its not in its DNA. ' ' '
