Sydney: the most ruthless team in the A-League

-

With another win recorded against Brisbane Roar – defending champions Sydney FC now sit five points clear atop of the A-League ladder.

A little under a third of the season has passed already and it’s clear it will take a lot of work to stop the juggernaut.

Coach Steve Corica has been crucial in retaining much of the title-winning squad of season’s past – along with mustering up signings to challenge for the championship once more.

Corica said there was still more to improve, but their winning mentality ensured they do not rest on their laurels.

“That’s what I want to see for them not to be happy in what they have done so far this season”, he said.

“We want to keep improving and keep getting better.

“The ruthlessness we show is great to see.”

Following their 5-1 hiding at the hands of Sydney, Brisbane Roar coach Robbie Fowler heaped praise on the Sky Blues, admitting they were difficult to face.

“The likes of Bauhjohann, Ninkovic, and runs from Adam Le Fondre hurt us,” he said.

The aforementioned Englishman Le Frondre netted his first hat-trick against Brisbane and said his ruthless run in front of goal was a reward for hard work.

“It is just Sydney FC standard,” he said.

“Ever since I have been here we have set high standards to score as many as we can and put teams to the sword.”

“We create chances and tonight we put them away which is all you can ask for really.”

Le Fondre said the system his team played was a testament to Corica and the coaching staff as it allowed attackers to enhance their goalscoring prowess.

“With the two 10s we have got in transition, we (forwards) do not need to come to feet,” he said.

“We can make those clever runs in behind.”

The defending champions look the best team so far this season and will take some stopping.

Sydney are at home next Saturday against Central Coast with the chance to impress fans once more.
