Melbourne Victory captain Carl Valeri has labelled Melbourne Victory’s sixth-place A-League finish as a “failure” but says the team is looking forward to tomorrow night’s “Grand Final” against Gamba Osaka, with the opportunity for the Victory to advance from the Asian Champions League group stages for the first time in the club’s history.
It’s a For Vuck’s Sake first this week as we have a current squad player joining us for the very first time! Victory midfielder Rashid Mahazi joins us on the line to discuss Friday’s win against WSW and how the team have reacted to the criticism in recent weeks. FVS and fozza favourite Nonna/Nadja also joins us in the studio as we dissect our win, Finkler’s departure, Valeri’s return and much more.
Over the course of the year we have had some big guests, but nothing was as fun as having Australian comedy royalty, Santo Cilauro join us at the Brunswick Sharehouse Studios for the entire episode. We have an in-depth chat with Santo about all things football and comedy. Don’t miss it.
We are edging ever closer to the end of the season so it’s time to take stock and look at our run home. This week we dissect our final few games and predict where we will finish. We also hit a Victory player with the Mehmet of the Week.
With Central Coast away this weekend, Tales From The Terrace returns after a few months off as we reminisce about the trip to Gosford in 2009 that is renowned within some circles as one of the biggest away trips in Victory history.
We’ve followed up Les Murray with yet another big name – Ned Zelic.
Ned joins us to chat about the current plight of the Victory as well as his own career abroad. We also discuss our ACL triumph and our current woes and place the blowtorch on Kevin Muscat. Tune in.

Les joins us to chat. We ask him about his journey, whether he believes the A-League has a future on SBS and his Zidane song.
We also chat about what we’ve had enough of, Buds hits the streets and I tee off on Cahill.
