Arnold certain things must change

-

Graham Arnold announced that “something has got to change” after his sides lacklustre 2-1 defeat to a travelling Perth Glory.

The veteran coach ensured that he was 100 percent committed to turning Sydney’s season but needed more from some of his players.

“I can only say to the Sydney fans that I’m working harder than I’ve ever worked, I’m working longer than I’ve ever worked.”

“I’m at work at 6:30am and I don’t get home till 6:30pm”

“But something has got to change… There are players getting comfortable, we’ve given them plenty of chances but maybe it’s time for a change”.

Despite spates of promising play, ultimately it was another frustrating and truncated performance from the Harbour City. And while the return of Alex Brosque and the presence of David Carney offered some solution to their offensive woes, the Perth goal remained largely untroubled.

“We have to be honest, tonight just wasn’t good enough” stated Arnold.

Meanwhile for Perth coach Kenny Lowe five wins on the trot has seen the Western Australians climb the ladder to within two points outside of the top six as it seems the Glory can’t put a foot wrong.

“We’re in a good place” said Lowe.

“We just need to keep doing what we’re doing. We’ve got a really good group here and we weren’t getting what we deserved. Tonight we got what we deserved”.

A resilient back line and some solid attack was enough to trounce the Sky Blue’s and for Perth fans it’s a great time to be a supporter.

“It’s an exciting time in our club at the moment” assured Lowe.

Meanwhile Sydney find themselves at the other end of the pool.

“Look it’s my job to get them up and going as quick as possible”, said Arnold.

“I’ve had success in the A-League over the years and success elsewhere and I know what it takes… I’m a fighter and I’ll come out fighting”.

“To the fans I say keep believing, keep trusting, keep supporting and we’ll turn it around”.

The loss leaves Sydney in a dangerous position teetering in fifth zone with a strong possibility of being bumped by Adelaide when they take on Central Coast Mariners today.
