Archie the Great!:

Tough one, but the one that sticks out for me as a Melbourne Victory supporter is Archie Thompson’s 5 goal haul in the 2007 A-League Grand Final. Melbourne Victory absolutely decimated Adelaide United 6-0 which is the greatest deficit in a Grand Final in Australian football history (including the NSL). 55,436 people witnessed a devastating performance from Thompson and Victory which literally had all the fans dancing in the Aisles. We sat on Level 2, just inside Gate 2 which meant we were just above the corner flag. The noise of the crowd, the quality of the game, and the overall atmosphere will stick with me forever!
