    Tonight’s game between Perth Glory and Melbourne Victory will take on extra significance tonight after the Heart inflicted a 2-0 loss upon Adelaide last night. We’ll have commentary on the live action from 9.45pm AEDT.

    A wonder strike from the ‘Kiwi Messi’ Marco Rojas saw the Victory get one over the Glory in a narrow 1-0 win in their last encounter at AAMI Park earlier this season.

    Both sides are facing differing fortunes at the moment. While the Glory are yet to hit their straps with an ageing squad, Victory have shown they are looking both short and long term. Witness the signings of ex-Rangers attacker Francesco Stella, ex-Perth youth product Jesse Makarounas and NYL side AIS captain Scott Galloway this week.

    Somewhat deceiving scorelines played out for both sides last week. Perth come in off a 3-2 loss away to Adelaide United, while Victory are coming off a potentially deflating 1-1 draw to the Mariners.

    The Glory will possibly welcome back Josh Risdon and Michael Thwaite to the starting defensive duties, while the Victory will miss Billy Celeski (suspended) and Nick Ansell (groin injury) with Jonathan Bru and Leigh Broxham likely to take their places.

    Perth have the wood over the Victory at their home fortress nib Stadium but whether that will last after tonight remains to be seen.

    Postecoglou has the Victory displaying a new mentality and attacking football to boot, and they’ll head across the Nullabor confident they can grab all three points tonight.

    This may be the moment Perth begin their run to finals, similiar to their run in season seven. They have the class and steel to do so in Smeltz, Miller and Burns, and Victory will need to be as quick as possible and run at the Glory defence.

    A win for the Glory would see them back in the top six while a Victory win will see them pressuring Adelaide for that second spot. We should see a close contest between two sides with serious A-League title aspirations.

      The only summer club in Perth with any clue are the Wildcats. Compare their professionalism to the institutionalised incompetence of the Glory front and back office. (And the Perth “Don’t care, qualified for CL” Scorchers.)

      We may as well not invite opposition over. No club is as dangerous to Glory as Perth Glory itself. Own Goals, goals caused by mistakes so unforced and atrocious they may as well be own goals.

      God spare me. So much BS above and below the surface here driving me batty. If I could have laid hold of a club official tonight I’d have given a piece of my mind they would have choked on. Or the match announcer. “We hope you enjoyed that match.” Shameless rat.

        Ugly night, absolutely filthy. False dawn starts to the year obviously wasn’t enough for the city’s premier trolls, they gave us a false dawn year and now back to your regularly scheduled programming.

        Half the front office and half the back office ought to be turfed.

        If anyone wanted to know who I was, I was the schmuck in the terraces trying to hang himself with his scarf.

          Also, last three home games, two draws and a loss and only one goal to the Shed end

        The quality of goal opportunities that we stop just make the utter wretchedness of the ones that we do concede so abject.

        How does a team accomplish the tremendously difficult so much more ably than the absurdly basic?

          A horrible feeling of deja vu!

          I am a follower of the Fremantle Dockers in “another place”(as they say in Parliament).

          In their chosen game,they have a similar record,so I should be used to it!

          Maybe it’s brain poisoning from the purple dye in their outfits! πŸ™‚

      Thanks Katie. Full credit to Perth, unlucky not to get a point. Again, Bozza is showing his class….. or lack of.
