Grand Final at the Dome

Melbourne Victory beat Adelaide 4-nil in the second leg of the Major Semi-final to make sure that this year's A-League grand final will be at the Telstra Dome.

This season has seen ups and downs and at one time I thought the Victory were going to fail even to reach the finals but good news is that the team had a good finish to the season and won the minor premiership.

I was very keen for Victory to get back into the Asian Champions League in 2009 and by getting the minor premiership the Asian Champions League is back at the Dome or at the new stadium.

Carlos Hernandez had a very good game on Saturday and its not surprising he was involved in all four goals and I hope he will play like that again in the Grand final to make sure that Victory will be the first team to get the double twice.

Adelaide will play Queensland Roar at Hindmarsh on Saturday and whoever wins that match will also play in Asia next year regardless of what happens in the final because Victory are already minor premiers.

I will not be surprised to see Adelaide win that match because they had the second best home record in the league this season behind the Victory.

On the other hand the Roar had the best away record and so it should be a very interesting match.

Whoever wins knows that it will be very difficult to beat the Victory at home and I am looking forward to an entertaining Grand final.
