The man who scored Melbourne Victory's decisive offside goal admits the A-League Grand Final would have been played differently had it been rightfully disallowed by the video assistant referee.

Kosta Barbarouses scored the only goal in Saturday night's 1-0 win over the Newcastle Jets but, while replays showed defender James Donachie was clearly offside when he headed Leroy George's cross back for the Kiwi international, a calamitous software error meant the VAR did not have access to the right camera...

Lawrence Thomas insists no ill feelings after horror Roy O'Donovan challenge

Melbourne Victory goalkeeper Lawrence Thomas says he holds no ill feeling towards Roy O'Donovan, revealing the man whose boot clattered into his jaw nearly became his flatmate eight years ago.

O'Donovan is set for a long A-League suspension after his high boot connected with Thomas' face late in Saturday night's Grand Final, earning the Newcastle Jets striker a straight red card.

Thomas was left bandaged and bruised but came away from the clash with not only a championship, but the Joe Marston medal...
