Do Sydney FC have a forward line?

We know ADP is brilliant but his team isn't is it?

 It's important that the A-League has a quality Sydney FC team, especially this year.

Crowds have flocked to the first two home games and the Club clearly have an opportunity to average 20,000 if they are exciting the fans.

But Ian Crook seems to have a battle on his hands doesn't he.

 Sydney are lacking in many areas. Amazingly Terry McFlynn the Captain, who presumably Crooky built his pre-season around was dumped after two games.

Will he ever be seen again?

 Lovrek looks like the usual Sydney import - all show, no impact. And the Panamanian Lau has yet to control a ball never mind do anything of note, not even against 10 men. Joel Chianase. Sydney need him back and fast. Can he produce a goal or two on the back of last season. He's still unproven but Mitch Mallia looks lacking everything just now. Would he be better, more aggressive down the middle? Sydney's forward line is dire.

 The wing backs young and headless in tried and tested Rhyan Grant's case. Terry Antonis needs to step up this year, but unless Jason Culina and Pascal Bosschart can bring some experience, quality and pace to the team Sydney's season may well be over before it really begins.

 Lucky today, completely outclassed by a Perth team well drilled in the ability to keep the ball. Sydney in the first half had nothing, not even the nous to change the tempo or keep the ball.

Mainly they have no forward line, so what can such a team do. How will they threaten?

It took the pace of Emerton to get beyond the forwards to receive a wonderful ball from Abbass but really could any of the forwards have achieved such a pass. Not with their running or thinking? Sydney lack a forward line. That is the problem.
