Harry Kewell lights up A-League

Fantastic game in Melbourne last night. Is it me or does this stadium lend itself to exciting games. Fast, furious and full of entertainment.

Is it the surface, or the proximity of the crowds?

Harry Kewell was superb in Melbourne last night as the Victory defeated the Jets 2-1.

Returning to his left wing position - wonder what Mehmet thought - Kewell simply did what everyone knows he can.

He tormented, crossed and delivered some absolutely stunning passes to release Danny Allsopp and Archie Thompson time and time again.

The Victory played well - were structured and confident.

However despite a strong showing the Jets, with a brazenly young Australia midfield - how good us that - The Jets probably created enough to gain a draw.

Like Sydney, Melbourne simply concede too many goals to make a real challenge this season.

If they can fix their defence they may move forward.

Long-term Brebner or Broxham in midfield have to go.

Last night it was Harry's show and a great game as well.
