Good morning. It's been a couple of weeks since my last post soapologiesfor that. I'm sure you didn't miss it too much anyway, especially considering last weeks result.

Last night's 2-2 draw with Central Coast evoked many feelings for me. In the lead up to the game I was excited and optimistic. Then I saw the starting eleven and Archie had been ruled out at the last minute due to illness Nabbout his replacement with Youth player Chris Cristaldo coming onto the

I know I've said it a few times now, along with everyone in the media, but it's true. The sign of a good team is one that can grind out results and get it done against the odds. Melbourne Victory are now one of those teams and you only need to look at last night's

Good afternoon Victory fans. These match previews are getting later and later every week, aren't they? Well, a little history will be made tonight as we make our first trip to Parramatta Stadium for our first ever match against Western Sydney.

Well, it's game day once again and the team head to Newcastle to take on the Jets tonight in what is always a tough away trip. We haven't had the best luck at Hunter Stadium, especially in the last couple of years so it should be an interesting game. Off the back of the Adelaide

Well, it's been a while since I've felt this good about a Melbourne Victoryperformance. For the first 60-70 minutes at least, it was some of the best football I've ever seen from this club. Right from kickoff we dominated possession and moved the ball around superbly. Our movement off the ball was intelligent and the

I mentioned on the blog yesterday and then again on Twitter last night that in recent times, Melbourne Victory has struggled to turn up for the big games. For much of the first half against Sydney, that trend looked to continue. Then came the turnaround. Thirty minutes into the game and things were looking rather

Good afternoon. I said on Twitter before the game last night that I wasn't feeling very confident about facing Newcastle. Turns out my gut feeling was right. When I asked people for their score predictions the feedback was mixed but themajorityof responses were positive with many believing we could come home with three points.

Following the biggest loss in Melbourne Victory's history, the last thing I want to be doing right now is writing about it, to be perfectly honest with you. But, there's no point in shying away from it so here goes. I'm not going to dwell on the specifics of the match. We all saw it
