Aussie sinks Melbourne Victory in Asian Champions League clash

Melbourne Victory lost 2-0 to Seongnam Ilhwa Chunwa of South Korea in their Asian Champions League match at Eithad Stadium tonight.

Sasa Ognenovski put the Koreans in front in the 40th minute.

A free-kick from the right was headed against his own post by Melbourne’s Leigh Broxham and as the ball rebounded, goalkeeper Mitch Langerak could only palm it to the feet of Ognenovski, who fired it through a crowded six-yard box and into the net.

Five minutes from the end, Yun Young-Sun made it 2-0 for the visitors when he headed home a corner.

Melbourne were without captain Kevin Muscat, who was not fit enough to play two games in three days, while Archie Thompson only came on as a substitute.

A small crowd was in attendance and the pitch was a little like the old Domain No. 3 ground in Hobart in the 1960s - in other words, it was a disgrace.

I heard a rumour that there will be a premier league launch tonight at KGV? Is this for both the North and South.

From what I heard a couple of political parties will be present?

Also nothing on FFT website, or in the paper over recent days, guess they don't like publicity, must be a private function :)

were the screams of agony coming from fft headquarters last night the result of fft being dragged into the 20th century or was it the result of the aplication of a fresh bandaid to that festering wound called div 1 and 2?
