The stage has been set for Melbourne Victory forward Besart Berisha to cement his A-League immortality.
With three titles in seven seasons, Berisha and Victory will gun for a fourth when the competition's heavyweights take on Newcastle Jets on Saturday night.
In doing so, he'll need to trash the fairytale Jets story, bidding to become the first club in post-War Australian football history - of any code - to win the league the year after claiming the wooden spoon.
Given the lethal goalscoring touch the Kosovo international has shown through his career, it's unlikely he'll spare a thought for Ernie Merrick's side.
Berisha already has the league's goals record.
He surpassed Archie Thompson last season to notch a century - the first and only man to do so - and currently sits on 116 strikes.
The 32-year-old will line up in his fifth grand final at McDonald Jones Stadium, equalling Michael Theo's and Mark Bridge's tallies.
He's scored in his previous four grand finals.
And while Theo's titles record of five is safe - for the time being - should Berisha win a fourth title against the Jets, the question must surely be asked.
Will that make him the A-League's best ever?
His only competition is surely his former teammate Thomas Broich, who masterminded all three of Brisbane Roar's titles from midfield.
Others might still emerge - with Milos Ninkovic possisbly arriving in Australia too late to rival Broich and Berisha's long dominance.
Victory coach Kevin Muscat has one, simple way to describe Berisha.
"He's a winner," he said.
"He's a proven winner.
"The way his career has gone since he's been in Australia, the expectation of him from all of us is very high.
"That's because of what he has produced."
Berisha's last goal - his overhead kick to knock Adelaide United out of the finals a fortnight ago - was a reminder that the Kosovo international is not merely prolific, but spectacular.
But last week, one of his record streaks ended.
Berisha had notched goals in his previous eight finals before drawing a blank in an otherwise superb showing against Sydney FC.
The fickle nature of the sport has seen Berisha cop criticism through the season - a campaign where only golden boot winner Bobo netted more - and for not scoring against the Sky Blues.
"A lot of people don't see I'm working really hard in the field," Berisha said.
"I did a great assist in Sydney even if I didn't score."
Berisha is philosophical on his record.
"Sometimes you can not win as a player," he said.
"If you score three times in a game they say 'selfish'.
"If you don't score at all they say 'it's not good'.
"If you score 116 goals, they say 'he just thinks for himself'.
"You cannot win. I just keep doing my job the way I'm doing. I'm very happy I'm playing in my fifth grand final."
That's Bersart Berisha, the winner who can't win.
