Brisbane Roar have been struggling immensely in the Australian A-League this season. They are closer to the foot of the table rather than near the top. This has prompted the club to adopt extremely defensive tactics in recent matches. They recently lost 1-0 to Melbourne Victory, who kept their position close to the top. Despite getting three points from the match, Melbourne manager Kevin Muscat was least pleased with the tactics of the opposition. He said that Brisbane Roar were primarily concentrating on time wasting throughout the 90 minutes. He says that it was the only reason for the game finishing as a narrow win for his team.
The victory over Brisbane finally brought an end to two consecutive matches without a win. This threatened to cost a place at the top of the table. Perth Glory and Adelaide United have a three and two point advantage respectively. Melbourne’s return to winning ways is also boosted by the fact that they are undefeated in the last four. One of the problems for the team in recent weeks has been their inability to find the back of the net consistently. Muscat says that the stop and start nature of the game against Brisbane certainly did not help his players get more goals.
“There was no momentum in the game, no-one was allowed to create any momentum.During the first half the stoppages to take free-kicks were excruciatingly long. I almost got bored at times. In the second half, when a team scores a goal, all of a sudden you have to hurry up.I’m going to have get that clarified. Because at 0-0 apparently you can take as long as you like on free-kicks and slow the game down. We’ll have to look at it.I don’t know if they were time-wasting but it seemed like a long time to me, you must have felt the same,” said Muscat.
