Crook, Carle want more A-League games

Sydney FC coach Ian Crook and playmaker Nicky Carle are calling for a longer A-League season to combat the lack of match fitness created by such a lengthy break.

The A-League went into recess after the grand final on April 22 and won't be back until October 5 - five-and-a-half months later.

Crook says one solution would be to add nine more rounds to the current 27-round regular season and have each team play each other four times instead of three.

Carle says a 36-game regular season would also help players vying for national team selection.
