Aussie Big Two: Payneful to watch!

You just knew it. Former Sydney FC striker Chris Payne inspires the Fury to Victory over a centre-forward lacking Sydney and nice set-ups too for the Young Australian.

And with Vitislav Lavicka opting for the ultra-negative approach, Terry McFlynn wide instead of the attacking Kofi Danning and a heap of centre midfielders defending the aging defence. Reap what you sow Mr Vitislav!

And in Melbourne on the back of the most dismal Asian Champions League performances by an Aussie club yet, the so-called A-League's best club off the field have failed to start the season with one experienced forward. 64% of possession and not a sniff of a goal last night.

Have Melbourne Victory run out of money, have they dropped the ball? Danny Allsopp and Ney Fabiano were sold in haste last season, Archie Thompson is out until November so who is left to lead this top team?

With Melbourne Heart moving in, a new stadium to hand, a strong exciting forward would have improved Victory's chances on building on their five year start in this two team town. They seem to have stumbled, first in Asia now at the start of the A-League season.

Young Australians who look to be making an impression early include Scott Neville over Evan Berger, David Williams over Scott Jamieson, add Chris Payne as the find of the season so far. Which shows Young players may be better moving clubs to get game time...and quick. Kofi will you have to move next?
