Victory Victory

For those following Melbourne’s soccer (sorry, Football) side, Melbourne Victory it’s been a great last couple of weeks with 3 wins in a row.

It’s disappointing though, as Wilson posted last month, that there isn’t any free to air (FTA) coverage of the games. Would’ve been good to watch. But then, that’s extra incentive for fans to turn up to watch the matches, is it not?

Despite the lack of free to air TV coverage, I’ve enjoyed listening to the live coverage of all of the Melbourne Victory matches on SEN the local sports radio station (1116). Unsure, but they might also be streaming the matches online.

One thing though, I still haven’t quite figured out Melbourne Victory’s theme song. All I remember was the radio interview with Ernie Merrick and he said something about it being based on “> the brave”. (I still keep thinking about the “Victory, Victory curtains and blinds…” jingle)

Alright, and here are tonight’s results from the game. Melbourne defeated NZ Knights 3-0. Which means Melbourne’s now third on the ladder at the end of round 7.

Of all the players for the Victory, i’d like to see Steve Pantelidis do well and possibly get a callup for the national team someday. Actually, there’s a lot of young players for Melbourne who could go on to big things.

Will be good to follow the team, and perhaps go watch a game or two sometime in the future.
