Arnold pleased with Sydney’s performance

-

Sydney FC and Adelaide produced an exciting 2-2 draw last night that saw Sydney jump temporarily to fourth on the A-League ladder.

The Sky Blues were certainly the superior team for the majority of the night and would consider themselves unlucky to have not come away with three points.

Coach Graham Arnold was very pleased with the performance and hoped it might hush a few critics.

“We played very well again tonight, like we have in the last six months and last year.

“It’s all perception [that we don’t entertain] and the perception is wrong. We have got very good players and we play very good football.

“We controlled most of the game in the opposition’s half like we have for the first 17 games.

“We didn’t have a great game against Brisbane and got caught on the break and I think today the boys showed we have a lot of quality.

Adelaide coach Guillermo Amor would have favoured win but conceded a point wasn’t bad against an exquisite Sydney outfit.

“We have gotten one point, but we always prefer to win.

“After the game and after we analyse the game and do a few different things, we can say it’s not a bad result.

“Sydney are a very good team and they play very well.

“They’re strong and the game was difficult.

“What is important is to see how the players are (feeling) physically in this moment. Today, the players played well and for me the level (of our football) was good”.

Despite the draw, Adelaide’s unbeaten run extends to nine with a clash with Central Coast to come.

Amor was confident the team would regroup and continue on strongly in the upcoming weeks.

“We are still in a fantastic moment. Everyone in the group is positive and the entire team is strong.

“Our team has such a good attitude and always gives 100 per cent.”
