Jets mission on track despite faltering results

-

The Newcastle Jets set out in the 2015/16 Hyundai A-League season to rebuild their damaged club and move forward.

After the turmoil of last season and despite the positive changes at the club the results are not reflecting the potential of the Newcastle squad.

They started the season with promise and at one period were even at the top of the table, however an unlucky run has left the Jets languishing near the foot of the ladder and lacking motivation.

Despite the results not reflecting a quality A-League squad, coach Scott Miller is pleased with the progress so far.

“We’ve got some unwarranted criticism throughout the year overall,” said Miller.

“From where the club was to where it is now, it’s a great improvement, and total respect for the playing group for their responsibility and effort so far.

“It’s not about being disappointed, it’s about being focused on achieving something here this year that drives stability but also maximising the opportunity and overachieving.

“There has been a balance of the two of late and we continually haven’t made the step but that’s a team in the rebuild.”

The Jets are slowly dropping on the table, currently sitting in eighth spot and at risk of falling further if their performances don’t improve.

“We look at the facts and we look at improving the team, individually and technically.”

“Everyone is having a challenging time throughout the season, things can change very quickly.”

Despite this risk, Miller is confident the squad will improve, particularly if things fall into place in the January transfer window.

“Its very clear that we’d like to improve the squad overall and that will be the case within time and reason and constraints.”

“Lets look at reality and it needs to improve.”

With stars David Carney and Mark Birighitti being linked to other clubs, the transfer window could hold some big changes. In desperate need of some depth, Miller needs to look for some quality additions that fall within the FFA’s budget.

Miller has a big job on his plate, with several key players, including Ben Kantarovski, Jason Hoffman, Carney, Birighitti and a multitude of younger players off contract at the end of this season.

Youth players in the likes of Nick Cowburn and Braedyn Crowley will also be looking to re-sign with their contracts ending at the completion of the National Youth League season.

Miller should be planning ahead in the transfer window to ensure he can keep the senior players as well as the youth players he has become dependent on. Also a priority is adding some depth with new signings that will help turn around their performance and get them back to a respectable standing.
