‘Hard’ City key to FFA Cup triumph: John van ‘t Schip

Tuesday, 25 October 2016

Melbourne City coach John van ‘t Schip said his team’s ability to mix silk and steel was key in their 2-0 FFA Cup semi final win over Victory on Tuesday night.

A goal to Luke Brattan put City on their way in the ninth minute, while Fernando Brandan completed the win with 13 minutes remaining after Victory had the better of the chances at AAMI Park.

Just 10 days after City destroyed Victory 4-1 in the Hyundai A-League, this was a much different encounter, with the Big V bringing plenty of aggression to the contest with eight yellow cards dished out (six to Victory).

“The boys really played a tough game,” van ‘t Schip told Fox Sports. “It wasn’t always good [football] but we deserved the win.”

Van’t Schip added he recruited players who had quality but also fighting spirit, something which was on show on Tuesday night.

“That’s important in  a game like this when you know a lot’s at stake and the emotions are there.

“You have to keep calm but make sure when it’s needed that you can show you are a tough team.

“On top of that, we want to play but sometimes you also have to put your foot in and be tough and hard and I think we did both this evening.”

Van’t Schip added Victory’s display against Adelaide last Saturday gave City an insight into what to expect on Tuesday night.

“They were very physical in that game as well with the most fouls in the league [in a game] and of course they had something to prove after their first loss.

“So it was normal they’d come our fired up and they did the same this evening.

“So, we had to match that and still try to keep playing our game and in big phases of the game we did.

“And in the end we controlled the game.”

A jubilant Tim Cahill declared his Melbourne City are due “respect” in Melbourne after defeating cross-town rivals Victory 2-0 in the Westfield FFA Cup semi final on Tuesday night.

City now play Sydney FC for a chance to win their first ever piece of silverware when the Sky Blues head to AAMI Park on Wednesday November 30 for the 2016 Westfield FFA Cup final.

After a fiery clash with Victory, Cahill was over the moon at the way his team responded to the physical challenge of the Big V.


And City, he said, are now a real threat to the domination of Melbourne Victory


“If we are going to bring competition to this league,” said Cahill who’s set to play in his third Cup final.

“We’ve got to compete. And for me this is what it’s about. And I’m proud for the boys and fans.”

Cahill added City needed a “reaction” after their 3-2 loss last Friday night to Perth Glory in the Hyundai A-League. And they got it.

“I said to our boys, what they [Victory] did to Adelaide [in the A-League last Saturday] they went there and were very physical and changed the way they played against us.

“We watched the game and knew that was going to happen tonight. But we can’t just lay there because “Muzzy’s” [Kevin Muscat] is the coach and let them kick us.

“You’ve got to stand up. There are two big clubs in this city and two big wins in 10 days and the respect’s there now.

“I said to the boys, all these hashtags, #thisisourcity, well it is tonight. And it will be coming soon so a bit of respect coming our way now.”

“Tonight we didn’t take a step back for anyone. And I think they [Victory] felt it.

“And this is for our fans.”

The Westfield FFA Cup Final 2016 between Sydney FC and Melbourne City FC will be played at AAMI Park in Melbourne on Wednesday 30 November 2016.

The details of the Westfield FFA Cup Final 2016 were announced after Melbourne City FC defeated Melbourne Victory 2-0 in the second Semi Final tonight.

“AAMI Park provides fantastic facilities, which allows fans to create an atmosphere that will ensure another chapter of this great national knockout competition is written.

“By playing the Final on November 30, there will be no disruptions to the Hyundai A-League schedule and it also follows the unique Westfield FFA Cup tradition of matches being played midweek. This also gives the Final some clean air so it can receive the promotion and publicity it deserves.”

Kevin Muscat happy with new system despite FFA Cup loss

Kevin Muscat watches on during his side's 2-0 loss to Melbourne City.

Kevin Muscat watches on during his side’s 2-0 loss to Melbourne City.

Melbourne Victory coach Kevin Muscat was pleased with how his team adapted to “major differences” in their set-up despite losing to Melbourne City in the Westfield FFA Cup semi final on Tuesday night.

While Victory ended up losing their second derby in 10 days – going down 2-0 at AAMI Park – they had plenty of joy against City with Muscat having switched from his regular 4-2-3-1 formation to a 4-3-3 line-up.

With Carl Valeri, Leigh Broxham and Rashid Mahazi screening Victory’s defence, Muscat’s side had a strong foundation to launch counterattacks from.

Besart Berisha held the ball up well, while Marco Rojas and full-back Jason Geria provided plenty of pace on the break.

“It was major differences tonight and there’s been slight differences in other games that probably go unnoticed but based on the opposition we were playing, we picked a team accordingly and we picked a structure accordingly,” Muscat said.

“I think, for the main, we were pretty comfortable.

“We handled playing out through a very aggressive press, from Lawrence all the way to creating chances up the other end.”

Muscat indicated the 4-3-3 formation could be used again this season.

Last week, Perth Glory defeated City 3-2 while employing similar tactics.

Adelaide wins bid to host 3,000 delegate 2019 World Routes conference

Australia will host the World Routes conference for the first time in 2019 when the event and its 3,000 delegates head to Adelaide for the three-day forum.

The event, which aims to develop new air services by bringing together representatives from airlines, airports and tourism bodies, among others, is expected to be held in September, and will be South Australia’s biggest ever conference.

World Routes, which began in 1995, is organised by UBM plc and the Adelaide event will be hosted by the South Australian Tourism Commission, Tourism Australia and Adelaide Airport.

“Destination marketing is a complex and highly competitive business and these are the professionals who play such an important part in deciding where international airlines choose to point their aircraft,” Tourism Australia managing director John O’Sullivan said.

Adelaide Airport general manager Mark Young said the airport has been attending World Routes events for 20 years, given its importance in helping promote air travel to the state.

“Adelaide Airport is a proud funding partner of World Routes 2019, and like the state government we support the goal to grow tourism and improve international air access,” Young said.

“It will support our continuing pitch for increased airline services by bringing key targets to our front door.”

The announcement of Adelaide as host of World Routes 2019 follows the announcement in March that Brisbane would host Routes Asia – one of five regionally-focused Routes events held every year – in March 2018.
