1 On a 9 game unbeaten streak with this week’s win by a solitary goal coming over a team with the 6th consecutive loss. LAST WEEK: 1HIGH: 1 | LOW: 2 Latest result: Won at Emirates 1-0Next AGL match: Away at Al Dhafra (01/08) 2 After Al Ain and Al Wasl, Al Ahli is the team with the best offensive line-up. They have the second top scorer in the league, which is nice. More importantly: Emirati players apart from the big names are stepping up in numbers for the first time since a few years. Consistency is the question, considering they have two back-to-back games before the next round. LAST WEEK: 3HIGH: 1 | LOW: 3 Latest result: Won at Al Shaab 4-1 Next AGL match: Away at Emirates (12/30) 3 Sarcastically traveled from a predictable win against Al Shaab with a un-predictable draw vs. Fujairah. We know the attack is great, but that defense has us concerned. LAST WEEK: 2HIGH: 2 | LOW: 7 Latest result: Draw at Fujairah 1-1Next AGL match: Away at Emirates (01/08) 4 Displayed an example of how not-to play offside traps. The flaming light of some Fabio Lima magic earned them that draw. Now the key is to prove themselves as a team that can compete among the top dogs. LAST WEEK: 4HIGH: 3 | LOW: 10 Latest result: Draw against Al Shabab 1-1Next AGL match: Home against Al Ahli (01/04) 5 Obviously this team is much, much more dangerous when Jo is available. Unfortunately, it wasn’t his day. LAST WEEK: 5HIGH: 3 | LOW: 6 Latest result: Draw at Al Nasr 1-1Next AGL match: Away at Sharjah (01/07) 6 Ismael Mattar saved the day for them with this goal. But the theory of Emirati keepers and their weak efforts on clearing (fisting) the ball in aerial battles still remains in tact. LAST WEEK: 6HIGH: 3 | LOW: 9 Latest result: Draw at Baniyas 2-2Next AGL match: Home against Dibba Al Fujairah (01/07) 7 For a moment there, thought there would be a fight among Belfodil and Larrivey to take the penalty. And surely, Larrivery is lucky Milligan was there to back him up after the weak effort. LAST WEEK: 7HIGH: 3 | LOW: 5 Latest result: Draw against Al Wahda 2-2Next AGL match: Home against Al Shaab (01/09) 8 Dibba is starting to grow on us. They have earned 13 points from a possible 16 since returning from the league cup rounds in November. And they are making the points count against like-minded team – crucial for their survival in the league. LAST WEEK: 11HIGH: 7 | LOW: 14 Latest result: Won at Al Sharjah 4-1Next AGL match: Away at Al Wahda (01/07) 9 Another rock-solid defensive effort, another opportunistic win, another example of how Al Dhafra is doing more with less (spending) just like peers Dibba Al Fujairah. LAST WEEK: 12HIGH: 9 | LOW: 13 Latest result: Won against Al Jazira 2-1Next AGL match: Home against Al Ain (01/08) 10 Fujairah have talent up and down the roster, and now just have to figure out who is the one to lead with consistent performances. LAST WEEK: 10HIGH: 7 | LOW: 14 Latest result: Draw against Al Nasr 1-1Next AGL match: Home against Al Ahli (01/09) 11 Only win against a lower tier team came at home in the 5-1 victory over Al Shaab. Have fallen down gracefully to the rest so far in the season. LAST WEEK: 9HIGH: 6 | LOW: 12 Latest result: Lost at Al Dhafra 1-2Next AGL match: Away at Al Wasl (01/08) 12 True story: the Goalkeeper – Ali Saeed Saqr was the only one active in that eventual slip up to gift Al Ain the only goal of the game. Seemed like he was making the run – all eyes on the ball – for a long time. LAST WEEK: 8HIGH: 4 | LOW: 10 Latest result: Lost against Al Ain 0-1Next AGL match: Home against Al Ahli (12/30) 13 Not the team we had seen in the last edition. Struggling on all ends with the only name popping up on a positive being that of Wanderley. LAST WEEK: 11HIGH: 9 | LOW: 14 Latest result: Lost against Dibba Al Fujairah 1-4Next AGL match: Home against Al Shabab (01/07) 14 Egyptian Amr El Soulia is playing in the wrong team unfortunately. LAST WEEK: 14HIGH: 12 | LOW: 13 Latest result: Lost against Al Ahli 1-4Next AGL match: Away at Baniyas (01/09)
