Pace in, Galekovic departs

Today we saw the arrival of one player and the departure of another at the Melbourne Victory. Victory signed 24 year old Preston Lions' defender Steven Pace as a replacement for the injured Daniel Piorkowski and to sure up our depleted defence. Leaving the club is goalkeeper Eugene Galekovic, who is on his way to league leaders Adelaide United as a replacement for the injured Daniel Beltrame. It is sad to see Galekovic depart (especially to Adelaide) but he was unlikely to get a start anytime soon with the form that Theoklitos is currently in. For a complete profile of our now former keeper, click here. Promising keeper, Mitchell Langerak now becomes the Victory's number two custodian.

Merrick has stated earlier in the week that any new signing would be unlikely to start the upcoming match against Central Coast. So does that mean Merrick has swallowed his pride and we will see the return of Ljubo Milicevic to the match day squad or will he maintain the cold shoulder and make do with a makeshift defence that will be already missing the services of Ryall (Young Socceroos duty) and Pantelidis (suspension). For the sake of the team, lets hope that at least of one of the two players will be in the squad or even the starting XI.
