A word fromthe Editor

ell, well, well. Eight matches to go, and Heart is sitting in fth place. If you told uswe’d be there in round ve, we would have laughed. If you told us we’d be there inround thirteen, we would have cried. But all in all, it seems about right for the seasonwe’ve had.Our awful stretch at the start is long behind us, and the boys look unlikely to hit sucha patch again, but our winning streak also looks a long time in the past. Injury to Fredhas taken some of our mideld sting, and the departure of Adrian Madaschi has left us alittle disorganised at the back - the results have borne this out - and now we are withouteverybody’s favourite future Socceroo Aziz Behich, as well as Mate Dugandzic and JasonHoffman, who are on Olyroos duty.Tonight will be Heart’s toughest derby yet, and despite our recent results, the team
must take condence from the Visitor’s poor run of form and ongoing backroom drama.
Expect things to get very edgy out there.Onwards and upwards. In edition 4 we have some cracking stuff for you. Another “realproper writer”, Tony Wilson, lends Schip Happens! his pen on page 6, and opens up aboutHeart’s devastating impact on his wife’s love for him. On page 13, Mate talks about his lovefor KFC and Mountain Dew, and we nd out just what his favourite literary work is. And wehave yet another special centrefold for the derby - this time dedicated to the third
most-famous Costa Rican (behind luminaries Francisco Amighetti and Claudia Poll),
Carlos “Juan Tonne” Hernandez.Remember, if you have a tale to tell, a review to write, or a picture to paint, send it to

I was watching an episode of the Irish comedyseries ‘Father Ted’ and it occurred to me thatthe Father Jack character had an uncannyresemblance to Visitors’ manager Jim Magilton.Was Jim an actor before he went into football
Hi Ardol,We are not sure if  Jim was an actor, but we know he isdoing a poor renditionof a football manager  at present. Ed 
Bitter litterer
I was at the derby game on 23 Dec and asI collected my issue of Schip Happens!, aMelbourne Visitors supporter also took one.When he got to the top of the steps I saw himrip up the magazine and throw it on the oor.What do you think upset him – A. The front page saying that there are twoteams in Melbourne; both redB. The Losers logo on page 2C. He realised that it was not a picture book and had far too many words with more than
 5 letters?
 Anyway, congratulations on a ne read and alsofor being able to upset Visitors fans so quickly. Tom Roberts
Tom, I suspect it coud be all three reasons.We try our best. Ed 
Match Preview
Heart v Visitors
Aaron Petrucci
espite the Heart’s season stalling after an incredible run of seven wins in eight games,the team and John van ‘t Schip still have many positives to take into today’s derby.
Heart keeper Clint Bolton, who recently moved into second place for all-time nationalleague appearances, is in career-best form, and wing-backs Behich and Marrone haverevelled in their mideld roles under JVS’ 3-4-3 formation, pushing forward to shoot andsupport the strikers. A demanding schedule, injuries to Fred, Srhoj and Germano, and Madaschi’s departureto Korea have given youngsters Sarkies, Hoffman and Williams the opportunity to establishthemselves in the starting line-up, and all three have impressed despite the dip in results.Credit must lie with coach JVS, who persisted with the Heart’s attacking formations, andhis faith in the players nearly paid off with an outstanding performance against the leagueleaders Central Coast before a late goal robbed the team of a deserved victory. This wasfollowed up with another quality performance against defending champions Brisbane Roar.Bolton, four time NSL/A-league winner, recently felt that Heart was losing intensity andletting opposition players have “a sniff that you’re letting up on them”. Victory in particular needs no more than a sniff of weakness to take the initiative on derbyday. Armed with new coach Jim Magilton who claims to play an attractive brand of passingfootball, navy-blue supporters demand revenge after feeling like the turkey over Christmas.While Heart can play well and lose, Victory can play very badly and win.
So just who is Jim Magilton?
Born in Belfast, Northern Ireland, Magilton was known as a talented midelder whospent over 15 years and played 580 games in the English football leagues, most notablyalongside English international Matt LeTissier at Southampton in the Premier League from1994-97. A natural box-to-box ball fetcher and carrier, he also made 52 appearances forNorthern Ireland and scored ve goals.His rst managerial role was at Ipswich Town, a club he played for from 1999-2006. Helifted the Tractor Boys to eighth position in his second season, narrowly missing the 2008play-offs for the Premier League. The following season he was sacked, but was quicklypicked up by Queens Park Rangers. He left that position within six months after reportedlyhead-butting a player in a dressing room. After treading water as assistant manager at Ireland’s Shamrock Rovers, he was signedas Victory caretaker coach for the remainder of this season.He has shown passion for the Victory cause by celebrating their goals like a fan, and hishalf-time thrashing of the players in Perth shows his determination for the team to improve.

Sleeping with the enemy 
I was intrigued by the ‘Change of Heart’ photosof Melbourne Visitors fans attending Heartgames in the last issue of Schip Happens!. Atthe last three home games v Perth, CCM andBrisbane, I have noticed Visitors fans sittingwith the away fans. How puzzling to see themcelebrating when the away team scored. Dothey not realise that they are actually celebratingteams moving above their team on the ladder?It would be like Liverpool fans sitting with ManUtd supporters in the away end at Man Cityand celebrating a United goal against the blues.Unbelievable.Jason
Best not to think too much Jase – God knowsthey don’t. Ed 
Fanzine a hit
Was at the last derby and picked up a copy of Schip Happens! First time I’ve seen it (althoughI attend every game as a foundation member)- perhaps you got distribution better organisedthis time. Great job, really good read ... funnyand plenty of info. Keep it coming.Jeff Fisher
Thanks Jeff, we aim to please. Now get those articles coming in to us. Ed.
