Sydney FC’s 4-0 demolition of Wellington Phoenix strengthened the claim that the Sky Blues have the best attacking force in A-League history.

Last night’s victory over the Phoenix demonstrated the league leaders’ ruthlessness in front of goal while four different goal scorers showed that they are not relying on one player to account for all their goals.

The attacking trio of Alex Brosque, Adrian Mierzejewski, Milos Ninkovic all contributed to the scoreboard in last night’s encounter while substitute David Carney capped off the scoring for the hosts.

The Sky Blues were clinical in the final third and did not have to call upon leading goal scorer Bobo to add to his record breaking 18 goal haul.

The Brazilian striker currently leads the race for the golden boot with teammate Mierzejewski behind him with nine goals following the departure of former Melbourne City striker Ross McCormack who returned to Aston Villa after scoring 14 goals throughout his time with City.

The A-League champions’ current crop of attacking talent is firmly in contention to outshine the likes of the lethal 2010/11 Brisbane Roar attack as well as Melbourne Victory’s array of attacking talent from their 2014/15 season.

Roar’s Kosta Barbarouses and Jean Carlos Solórzano netted 22 goals between them from the team’s overall total of 58 goals in their 2010/11 title winning campaign while Victory’s Besart Berisha and Archie Thompson combined to score 23 out of their 56 goals in the 2014/15 season.

Together, Bobo and Mierzejewski have already outperformed these impressive feats with a combined 27 goals after just 19 matches placing them in the reckoning for the best attacking duo in A-League history.

In addition to the deadly duo, Sydney coach Graham Arnold has had the pleasure of goals coming from Brosque, Ninkovic and Carney. Between them the Sky Blues trio have accounted for 11 of their side’s 46 goals this campaign.

Their potent attacking force has been crucial to their success and will place them in good stead as they look to secure back-to-back A-League titles and confirm themselves as the deadliest attack in A-League history.
