Melbourne, Australia

Day 558. 17 October 2005

I went to the football on Sunday, the sun was shining and I walked along the river to the stadium which made a change from Moss Side.

Sydney FC came down to Melbourne for a top of the table clash and we won 5-0 and then Manchester City produced a stunning display apart from the finishing to top off an excellent weekent. One stand were chanting What a waste of money whenever Yorke had the ball, he started in attack, dropped into midfield and ended the game in defence!!

Below is some of the match report...

Melbourne Victory has moved to the top of the Hyundai A-League table after the most devastating football display of the season to date, hammering an undisciplined Sydney FC by a massive five goals to nil. Sydney was humiliated by an Archie Thompson inspired Victory outfit, who turned out a second half performance that has sent an ominous warning to their A-League rivals. A capacity crowd of over 18,000 fans turned up to see Archie and Kevin Muscat battle it out for top scorer honours, with the pair securing braces in the rampant display, with Sydney FC ending the game with Dwight Yorke filling several holes in the visitors defence.
