They also said they were announcing their first signings very soon, some current A-League players.

Matt Thompson from Newcastle and Theoklitos to come back I reckon. Wouldn't be suprised to see McKain go there too.

Mhmm, was a bit worried about McKain. Hopefully not though. Heard CCM were also keen on Thompson. Wouldn't be surprised if Theo came back.

Sporting Melbourne FC for me, reflects one of the true culture of the City. Melburians is OK but reminds me of Hibernians in Scotland.

How are you anyway Hack

FORMER Manchester United star Jesper Olsen is one of two assistant coaches at Melbourne's new A-League club. <!-- google_ad_section_end(name=story_introduction) --> <!-- // .story-intro --> <!-- google_ad_section_start(name=story_, weight=high) -->

The Melbourne Heart syndicate announced today it had signed Denmark-born Olsen and former Socceroo Ante Milicic to be inaugural assistants to John van 't Schip to set the foundation of a strong future.

Van 't Schip said today: "I'm excited to be working alongside Ante and Jesper. They bring qualities to the table, which are important to build a successful football club, and will help us into the future.

"Ante's knowledge of youth football, development and the A-League will prove important, while Jesper's experience in the Dutch system will reinforce the football style and philosophy I hope to integrate."

Milicic, who returned recently from Egypt following a stint as assistant to Young Socceroos boss Jan Versleijen at the under-20  World Cup, is one of the exciting coaching prospects in Australia, claiming the 2009 NSW Premier League Coach of the Year award after guiding Sydney United to the minor premiership.

Milicic, 35, played six times for Australia.

He also played in the Dutch Eredivisie and Croatian first division before returning to Australia and becoming the first player to score an A-League hat-trick.

For Olsen, a veteran of two European the Heart role is his first coaching appointment after five years developing and identifying talent through his own academy in Australia and Europe.

He has an impeccable football pedigree, having played under the likes of Sir Alex Ferguson and French World Cup winning coach Aime Jacquet, and alongside Dutch legend Johan Cruyff, in an 11-year career as a professional in Europe.

He earned 46 caps for Denmark and also played for  Holland's Ajax and French club Bordeaux .

Sporting Melbourne dfinately the least cringe-worthy from the list, so that would get my vote if I cared.

You know we belong together...

I like this..

Melbourne Heart FC
"With the grassroots football community at its heart, Melbourne's new A-League team aims to become the people's club."

The intentions are nice.
Too bad they have outed that they are looking for a mix imports of different cultures and ethnicities.

Melbourne Lights?
f**k Melbourne Victory FC?

What about a name for the stadium?

The best I can come up with is (Other than the Bubble Dome)

Spectacle Football Stadium.

Just to confuse people when they say SFS.

Almost as confusing as why they would build a stadium a short walk from Etihad and Olympic park..Stefan2009-11-19 21:44:33

Swan St Stadium...easy.

And because Etihad is an AFL stadium that is too big and souless for football and the Victory outgrew Olympic Park early on.

Can't wait. It's about 10-15 mins from my Dad's house and with Heart coming in it means I get to see a couple more Nix games a year!

I went to a game at Olympic park. Melbourne V. Sydney
Apart from it being a sh*t stadium, The atmosphere was pretty cool.

Plus they could do the, North end, south end, east end, west end chant

Yeah, I was there when they faced the Knights (one of their last games) and beat them 4-0. The Knights actually played pretty well that day considering most of the players didn't travel because of contract issues.

They did the North/South/East/West chant that day. Everyone joined in - was pretty great.

I preferred Olympic Park to the Telstra Dome but Swan St is going to be f**king amazing. I've never experienced a high-capacity, full, rectangular football stadium before.

I was going to laugh at Sarkies, but he's actually starting to look like a footballer lately.

So I'll laugh at Heffernan.  Ha !
