Melbourne Heart FC Chief Executive Officer Scott Munn and GM, Football Operations John Didulica outlined their long term vision for the Club during its inaugural fan forum at La Trobe University.

Speaking exclusively to members, the duo discussed and dissected Heart-s evolution and plans for next season, revealing the Club-s recruitment plans for the 2012/13 season and key areas for improvement ahead of the upcoming campaign, both on and off the field.

Munn and Didulica made their own individual presentations to those in attendance, before the floor was opened to the members attending, who had free reign to ask all sorts of questions to the club-s representatives.

Munn spoke frankly about the goals Heart set out to achieve from day one, and gave those in attendance an honest assessment of how successful, or indeed how poorly, the club had performed in relation to those individual goals. Membership was a big topic of concern, whilst Munn also detailed the Heart-s long term plan to build an elite training and administrative centre for Melbourne Heart on the La Trobe University grounds.

Didulica focused more on the football side of things, stressing the important of staying true to the established philosophy of placing faith in, and in turn developing, technically astute young footballers. Didulica also revealed the areas of the squad that the club is looking to strengthen, with Heart looking to add an experienced defender, defensive midfielder and two attackers, in addition to Golgol Mebrahtu, who will trial with the club in June.

Fan questions covered a lot of ground, with a lot of vocal support for club assistance for away trips. The question of community ownership was also a pertinent question raised, and one that was discussed as a real possibility in the future.

Melbourne Heart FC would like to thank all the members that came to the forum and participated so willingly.
