Thompson ready for Roar in A-League

Archie Thompson remembers coming back from Socceroo duty days after Brisbane Roar handed Melbourne Victory the worst defeat in club history.

"A morgue," Thompson said of the atmosphere in the dressing room in the days after the 5-0 A-League battering in October.

The Victory died that night.

Then they felt better.

To the point that they have rocketed into the top four, while their northern neighbours have headed south on the table.

Thompson returns from Socceroo duty this week for another clash with the Roar on Saturday, having missed the Victory's past two matches.

The vibe is far different.

The patients - and patience - have been rewarded.

"If you start thinking you've lost a round-two match and that's the end of our season, well that's not the attitude to have," Thompson said.

"We always knew that we were going to get better.

"It was a matter of time. Once we started to know what Ange (Postecoglou) wanted, and come to terms with how everyone plays, you can see it's starting to work on the weekends."

The Victory's 4-2 loss to Adelaide United last weekend shows there is still improvement to come from a team which has four wins, a draw and just one defeat from their past six.

If the Victory could reverse their October horror show at AAMI Park on Saturday, it would be further proof Postecoglou has swung around his new club since quitting the Roar.

"The boys were really disappointed because they were up for that game, against a champion team like Brisbane," Thompson said.

"But they're up against the wall at the moment. I saw (Roar player Eric) Paartalu saying this could be a defining game for them, so they'll be up for it too."

Thompson admits the Socceroos' four games in seven days in Hong Kong took a toll on his 34-year-old body, but is confident he will be able to play on Saturday.

"I was put in the starting line-up for training and I nearly substituted myself," Thompson said after a Thursday session held in mid-30 degree temperatures.

"But I'm excited with the football we're playing - I want to be part of it."
