At the end of last season, Sydney FC surprised their own fans as well as the rest of the league when they decided to not renew the contract of Austrian international Marc Janko.

Will Someone Please Remove the Sky Blue Band Aid?

As someone who is an inaugural season ticket holder with Sydney FC, I have been able to thoroughly see their development as a football club. Yet, I’m still not convinced that the word ‘development’ can be used with Sydney FC in the same sentence and we are some nine years on since their inception in the league. With an allegiance towards the Sky Blues, I cannot be biased or hide from the fact that Sydney FC has done things wrong and continue to do so.
