Sydney FC Claim Vital Away Win

A clinical performance from Sydney FC has given the Sky Blues their second win in a week over Melbourne opposition with a 2-0 defeat of Melbourne Heart at AAMI Park this evening, sending them into 3rd on the Hyundai A-League ladder. First half goals from strikers Alessandro Del Piero and Joel Chianese were enough for the visitors in the Harvey Norman Friday Night Football game, which they could have won by a bigger margin. The Italian World Cup winner struck from the penalty spot midway through the first half, before the 23 year old Chianese pounced on the stroke of…

Derby Loss Tip of the Iceberg

Last night, Sydney FC produced one of the more insipid performances in the club’s history. That may be a harsh statement, however what was produced against Western Sydney in the derby at Allianz Stadium was plain and simply not good enough. It was diabolical, shambolic, pitiful and down-right disastrous. When you are on your own turf you must make a statement of intent. A statement that will reverberate through your opponent to make them fully aware that this is your home ground and you are not going to let anybody tell you otherwise. The Wanderers told Sydney FC last night…

Sky Blue Bojic becomes A-List A-League star

Perched on the hill overlooking the main pitch at Sydney FC’s training complex, you can immediately gain a sense of the type of person you are dealing with when you meet Pedj Bojic for the first time. He is kicked back and relaxed, as if there isn’t a worry in the world. The first sentence that comes out of his mouth when he is introduced to me is a reflection of the very personality you will soon discover. “Why are you here mate? It is so hot, you should be at the beach!” To Pedj’s credit he was right. On…

Farina Calls For More Fight

Frank Farina has bemoaned his side’s lack of fight on Saturday night after his Sydney FC outfit were dismantled 4-0 by a rampant Brisbane Roar at Suncorp Stadium.

Despite the game being effectively over by the break, Farina said he was disappointed by his team’s failure to force their way back into the contest in the second half,…

Sydney FC Must Complement ADP

A year after his arrival on Australian shores, it’s worth remembering how successful Alessandro Del Piero has been as a player. Across nineteen years as a player for Juventus, he scored a club record 290 goals in 705 appearances – the most of any player in the club’s history. By the age of 22, he had won everything possible at club level. The number of Serie A titles is debatable because of the Calciopoli scandal, which saw Juventus stripped of their honours in 2004-05 and 2005-06. Regardless, Del Piero still managed to sweep six, which includes an unbeaten season under…

Sky Blues Set Sights on Success

After a disappointing finish of 7th in the season of 2012/13, Sydney FC have made major alterations to their roster in order to rebuild a squad that was lacking sufficient depth and quality to compete with those at the summit. Frank Farina was handed the reigns as head coach on a permanent basis at season’s end after spending the last third of the season in a caretaker role. With Farina locked in at the helm, the hierarchy at the Sky Blues moved to the next item on their agenda: reshaping a bland and lacklustre squad that had the spark without…
