A signing to ward off the doomsayers

After a weekend of bad news, Melbourne Victory have provided us with some news that they completely haven't lost the plot. Today, they signed Olyroo Nick Ward on what is essentially a six month deal that will see him play a part in the remainder of the season and our Asian Champions League campaign. Is this the signing that will turn our season around? Hopefully it is, although it probably may mean that one of my favourite players, Kaz Patafta may get pushed further into the background. Or am I expecting too much from such a young player. Merrick doesn't seem to have the greatest record with young, attacking players and this is my only concern regarding this signing. The attacking midfield position is one that hasn't really been covered this season and may require a change of system from the man in charge. This signing may also spell the demise of Brebner, who has looked out of sorts all season, in the midfield. It looks like Ward will be available for the home game against Newcastle. Maybe a sense of optimism is returning. For all the details, click here.
