Adelaide United won the battle for the A-League trophy on Saturday night, but the war wages on via social media, after the match was marred by wild behaviour in the crowd.
United raised the trophy and were showered in ticker tape after defeating the Western Sydney Wanderers 3-1 in the A-League grand final. Unfortunately, today's headlines aren't focusing on a great game, a heroic individual performance or an amazing highlight. The post-match focus has been centered around widespread damage allegedly caused by visiting Wanderers fans.
The Wanderers fans showed up in enormous numbers, with an estimated 12,000 fans in red and black storming Adelaide Oval. A video posted on the team's unofficial fan page gives us an idea of just how large the West Sydney army was.
