AFC Champions League Matchweek 2
The match rolled along and the battle in the stands was just as intense as the battle on the pitch. Uruwa brought what seemed like an army of fans. Their unison in hand motions and wall of noise that they sent across the stadium was at times amazing. It was great being apart of it and the Cove gave back as good as it took. I would say that we are a different type of supporter group, focusing more on having a good time and a variety of songs and chants to support the lads rather than a hardcore, almost ‘perfect’ group that they seemed to be. We will take elements of their support on board though and all up it was a great experience having them in
The action on the pitch was just as crazy as the action in the stands. The Dave Carney of old was back and causing havoc when he ran at players. I know that the other A-League clubs have him sussed but Urawa obviously hadn’t done their homework on his “one footedness” and paid the price with him scoring a sublime goal from a pinpoint Milligan throughball (who said he was being wasted in midfield J) and then drawing a penalty to go up 2-0 early in the first half! It was stupid to think that the game was over but we couldn’t help see stars in our eyes and be already thinking about cruising into the knockout stage. Good things never last long when Sydney FC is concerned and this case was no different.
Short and sweet. Hopefully I can keep better up to date in the future!
