Time for Dome Victory

This Friday Melbourne Victory play Queensland Roar at the Telstra Dome in what is going to be the last home fixture for the regular home and away season before moving on to the finals.

Its been more than two months now since Victory last won at the the Telstra Dome and that match was the Oaks Day match against Perth Glory where victory was secured by a solitary goal scored by Grant Brebner in the dying stages of the match. Interestingly that match recorded the lowest Telstra Dome attendance so far this season of 22,890.

Going into the finals I think its important that Victory starts winning now at the Telstra Dome and I hope coach Ernie Merrick will put up a strong side that will sign off with a victory come Friday and it will also be good for us fans as well.

Although this match may not be all that important for Victory having secured the minor premiership already the same cannot be said for the Roar who have to win to keep their slim finals hopes alive. Currently sitting in fifth position and with 25 points, winning their last two matches will help them secure a top four finish especially if Sydney FC loses away to Adelaide this weekend.

If may be so presumptuous as to speak on behalf of the Queensland Roar, sorry to disappoint.

But we needed it more than you.


You are right Hamish, the Roar needed to win more than Victory but I thought Victory would have played to win for their fans given that the last win at the Dome was more than two months ago.

What worries me though is the fact Victory seems to have lost its form at home going into the finals.

Now the Roar have a real chance of qualifying for the finals given the Newcastle's result against Perth.
