Re: GC150 - The Forum Invasion / Choose the League!
~Melbourne Heart News~
The A-League was very disappointing. Won the last match of the season 6-0 but was still 3 points behind cross-town rivals Melbourne Victory.
Feeling pretty happy about the teams position moving forward though after a 7-1 drubbing of Luton Town, a 2-2 draw against a full strength Barcelona and then a 2-0 win against Real Madrid despite spending an hour with 10 men.
The club has added Gundogan, Malanda, Kolasinac, Depay and Diouf in the previous fortnight, boosting the average rating of the starting XI to 88.
The club are considering offering Butland, Kovacic and cash to secure a stronger keeper.
The club are also very interested in a potential deal to secure Eden Hazard to join both Thorgan and Kylian who are already in the Red & White.
Heart will face Real Madrid later in the week to further test their newest lineup against the elite teams.
We are happy to play any team in a friendly match should the opportunity arise as we have no first team football for nearly 30 days.
The club will head into the Australian Cup undermanned due to players being cup tied but Heart believe that we can still beat any side in the league comfortably if we play our style on the pitch.
