Melbourne Victory v Perth Glory


This was our first game at our true home ground, AAMI Park after playing four games under an old contract with Etihad Stadium.  We have reserved seats here so don’t need to get to the ground until just before kick off if we want.  It certainly beats having to get to Etihad when the gates open 90 mins before kick off.

It was a good, hard game with Victory slowly getting on top.  With several missed chances for Victory to score, it began to look like it was going to be a tough, defensive nil all draw but suddenly a set play worked well and Marco Rojas ended up with a great goal.  Rojas is fast becoming a crowd favourite, especially with the Northern End supporters.


Throughout the game we saw the stormy clouds rolling in from the west.  Sure enough, just as we were standing in the platform waiting for our train home, the thunder and lightning started.  It was awesome to watch but I was a little worried because we were a little exposed .
