Amor frustrated, but keeping the faith

-

Adelaide United’s dismal start to the season continued on Thursday night, increasing the pressure on head coach Guillermo Amor.

The Reds were comprehensively beaten in a thrilling 4-2 encounter by genuine contenders, Melbourne City.

Amor, looking overwhelmed by the situation, believed Adelaide’s performance displayed a mixture of everything.

“Obviously there were some good moments for Adelaide United. There were some moments where we looked really dangerous in attack.

“There were some bad moments as well.

“There were some mistakes that cost the team”.

Despite the defeat, Adelaide had 21 shots on goal compared to Melbourne City’s 14, continuing their offensive improvement. But as Amor pointed out, that stat means very little if the Reds are failing to capitalize.

“Those stats are good, but they need to start translating into goals.

“A lot of our chances the ball was not in a dangerous position to shoot.

“We need to make sure all of our chances come about as easy as possible, and then we will start scoring more”.

Adelaide controlled the ball for large periods of the night and looked comfortable on the ball.

As soon as the ball was turned over however, City countered emphatically, exposing the vulnerable Adelaide defence.

On numerous occasions City attackers waltzed freely into the box with few Adelaide jumpers in sight.

Amor acknowledged that defensive errors and lapses were an issue, but something the team was continuing to work on.

“I can see the errors they are making and keep making, but we are trying to fix this.

“The defence works hard in training, they are trying to improve more with every training.

“Everyone is confident in their own ability and the team’s ability”.

United may be zero wins from five but Guillermo Amor believes Adelaide will come out of this rut unscathed.

“I’m an optimist, I am a winner.

“Because of this, I always feel we will be fine.

“It will all be good soon”.

United, who sit bottom of the Hyundai A-League ladder, now face a dreaded trip to New Zealand to tackle the Wellington Phoenix.

With confidence levels dropping and hope fading, a result is crucial to keep Adelaide’s season alive.
