Mifsud set to debut against Glory

Maltese international Michael Mifsud, fresh from his 100th international appearance with Malta, is set to debut for Melbourne Heart FC in the Club’s Round Three Hyundai A-League clash against Perth Glory this Sunday. Mifsud reached the milestone 100th appearance for his country on Friday 11 October, marking the occasion with a goal against Czech Republic stalwart Petr Cech, in a 4-1 loss against the Czechs in World Cup Qualifying. “It’s always nice to score and be on the score sheet, especially against a big player like Petr Cech, but that’s over now and I’m looking forward to my next game…

Flores Breaks Heart’s

The Central Coast Mariners looked down and out trailing 2-0 to Melbourne Heart, until two dubious penalty decisions gifted last years champions their second draw of the season. Heart were dominant in the opening ten minutes of play with Dugandzic being involved in all the chances the side created. On both occasions Dugandzic set up Williams only for Mariners pair, Sainsbury and Hutchinson, to block both shots respectively. But it was last years Champions who were controlling the flow of play and their first chance came on the 25th minute mark when the ever so impressive Mitch Duke fired a…

Kewell 50/50 to take on Mariners

Melbourne Heart FC Head Coach John Aloisi will give Harry Kewell plenty of opportunity to recover for tomorrow’s Hyundai A-League match, as his captain races against time to front up against Central Coast Mariners at AAMI Park tomorrow. Kewell is rated a ‘50-50’ chance to recover from a case of whiplash in time for tomorrow’s 5.30pm kick-off, after being struck on the back of the head by a Pablo Contreras clearance in the Round One Melbourne derby. “[He's] still struggling a little bit,” Aloisi said. “We are going to leave it until the last minute and give him a fitness…

Rock Solid Heart Hold Arch Rivals

A record-breaking Melbourne derby crowd of 45,202 turned up to Etihad Stadium on Saturday night only for supporters of both Melbourne Heart and Melbourne Victory see their team suffer from stage-fright. To the disappointment of the fans the usually drama-filled affair finished nil all. Football fans around Australia were hoping to put controversy behind them for the day after another poor performance by the Socceroos and Holger Osieck’s sacking earlier in the morning as the biggest match on the A-League calendar was upon them. In one of the most uneventful of the ten derbies held between the two clubs, Heart pulled off a brilliant…

Heart’s Beating

Melbourne Heart FC Head Coach John Aloisi will be looking to start this season in an identical way to last years campaign with a win over its arch rivals the Melbourne Victory. The Red part of Melbourne claimed first blood in the Derby opener at Etihad Stadium last season, and with the head to head meetings tied at three wins, three draws and three losses a piece, Aloisi predicts another tough encounter. ”We’ve been very excited for this season and we’re ready,” Alosi said. “It’s such a special day for our supporters, the club and the players. ”We will attack…

Season of Redemption for Melbourne Heart?

It’s been nothing short of a pre-season full of optimism for Melbourne Heart following the disappointing campaign that was 2012/13. What happened last season? The Heart were terrible on the road last season, claiming just one point from a possible 36 – not including the Melbourne derbies. A team thin on quality eventually caved in as the season entered its final months, finishing in ninth place. The Heart’s leaky defence conceded 40 goals and a poor attack scored just 31 times, only Perth Glory was worse. What was most alarming was the team’s inability to pick up points or cause…

Heart Binge and Purge For New Season

After a dismal finish last season, Melbourne Heart will be looking to push for a finals berth this time round. Heart have made some key additions to their squad for the upcoming season with some key signings, Harry Kewell being the most high profile one. Kewell signing for Melbourne Heart could turn out to be a good deal for both parties. Heart have lacked a player with Kewell’s skills and experience and Kewell himself targeting a World Cup spot. Kewell has also been made club captain for the upcoming season after an impressive pre-season. Melbourne Heart also signed Orlando Engelaar…
