Ya know, if we were going to get another thread about Australian football, I'd've kinda liked another thread about Australian football.Seriously, if you want soccer there are better games being played in the jungles of the Congo than down here.

It's not even a dialect thing, it's just headline-speak with some sports jargon.  Written as a sentence understandable in the rest of the English-speaking world, it would read "Melbourne Heart coach says the horrors that his team has been experiencing with away games in the A-league is history".

Also I guess it might be a different journalistic standard that attributes everything the coach says as the official position of the team.  I do recall seeing that in UK newspapers a team is considered a plural, the same must be true in Australia.
