Melbourne a mess?

There has been some exciting, fast running Victory teams over the past seven years but this is not one of them.

In fact I'm close to declaring it the worst team the Victory has ever produced.

When you see Danny Allsopp and Archie Thompson lining up together it might bring back memories for older players but fans of the game know that partnership is little threat.

In midfield the controller Leigh Broxham is moved at half-time, Billy Celeski has never returned to his best since his serious injury and Tom Pondeljak is older than Archie, Danny Allsopp and slower than Carlos Hernandez at 35.

Perth were unlucky not to win - even with 10 men. Melbourne had the most disjointed performance in the A-League since....well the last time tehy played.

They need Harry - he at least can control the ball and find a player.

Fabio is well over-rated, Matty Kemp should be on the left where he is best.

But a midfield that can't pass one touch, move themselves and the ball quickly in the A-Leagues these days are dead.

The Victory say they go well in training - but that's teh point they are playing against themselves!
