Sydney FC's 2012/13 summer thus far, has best been described by the Sky Blue's proficient striker, Samantha Kerr. She described the season as being "up and down".
Domestically and internationally, 2012 was a big year for several players. Whether shining in the W-League in a champion side, tearing it up in overseas competitions, scoring spectacular goals against the Olympic champs or marking the world's best, several senior and U20s players made their mark in 2012.
2012 saw the first mass exodus of players overseas to the US and European leagues. At one point in time there were up to 20 Australian footballers actively plying their trade in countries like the US, England, Sweden, Germany and Denmark.
A goal in the last seconds of injury time has enabled Sydney FC to steal a 4-3 win over a luckless Canberra United in steamy conditions at Leichhardt Oval.
