by far their worst ever season since the start of the a league.
** PpG = points per game **
This season of the a league they will finish 2nd last & have a PpG of 0.833, 14 losses and a -14 GD currently.
Season 1 of the a league they finished 2nd last holding a total PpG of 1.238, 9 losses and a +2 GD (they only bettered New Zealand Knights)
Season 7 of the a league they finished 3rd last holding a total PpG of 1.074, 10 losses and a -8 GD (it was our second season as Heart and finished 6th)
They have Perth and Wanderers to come, meaning they probably wont get 1 PpG (they have to win both).
FWIW, our season where we finished last, we had a PpG of 0.963, lost 13 (having played 27 games to Victory's 26 games this season) and a -6 GD (we actually drew 2 and lost 4 of our last 6 games, so we were on track to do much better until our usual end of season fade away).
So funnily enough, one could argue through comparison that John Aloisi was actually unlucky to "win" the wooden spoon with us that season when Victory have been total rubbish this season. Then again, we did only get 4 points from games that season (for a 0.333 PpG). It also magnifies how much better we would have been if Engelaar had been fully fit at the start of the season.
on an additional note, in season 2 of the a league, New Zealand Knights had a PpG of 0.9048 - Victory would need a win and draw from their last two games or else their current season would be worse than one of the New Zealand Knights' seasons
