Sydney FC Captain Alex Brosque notched another milestone for the club in Saturday’s #DemolitionDerby, as he recorded his 100th win in the Hyundai A-League.
We caught up with the Sky Blues’ skipper to get his thoughts on his latest milestone, and the record set to tumble this Friday night at Allianz Stadium against Melbourne City.
100 wins for yourself, and you notched it in pretty spectacular fashion.
It was nice, one win that I’ll never forget. It was a great game all round by the boys, to score the amount of goals we did. To have the as many chances as we did it could have been worse for the Wanderers, but it was a nice way to cap off a big Derby and a nice milestone as well.
What other wins from your 100 stand out?
Probably the same game last year I think, the 4-0, although any Derby win is big. To do it in that sort of fashion and that style though, they’re always nice.
Pleased to get off the mark with Saturday’s goal?
Yeah of course! That monkey on my back was starting to get like a silverback, it was getting huge, so I needed to get a goal and it was a nice game to finally get it done in. I’m sure that I’ll get a few more now, it was nice to get the first one out of the way.
That’s a couple of milestones set by you now, how pleasing is it to hit these targets?
It’s humbling, it’s nice to be involved with a club for so long and feel so at home here. To have seen so many good players come and be a part of the club and to have made as many friendships as I have, to know everyone within the club and have that connection with the fans is very very humbling. I feel very lucky to have been able to do that. To break records like this is something that when I’m finished will be very nice to look at.
You set another milestone this Friday, eclipsing Terry McFlynn’s all-time appearance record, how do you feel about that?
Again it’s just nice. Terry did so much for this club and continues to do so much here, so to break his record is nice. To be in that same breath of conversation as Terry is very humbling for me.
Funniest moments, what stands out from your time at the club?
There’s been a lot of funny moments to be fair, and a lot of characters at the club. At the moment we’ve got Carns [David Carney] who makes everyone laugh, Jordy as well who’s always doing unpredictable things and that’s the great thing about football. You always meet good people and good characters and Terry McFlynn was one himself. He’s got a suit and tie now so he’s got to be a bit more proper these days but he was a bit of a clown.
Lastly, how have you seen the club change over the years?
It’s changed a lot over the years. Where it is at the moment is like nothing I’ve seen before at an Australian club and that comes from speaking to other players too. I think we’re in a position now, with Arnie having taken over and the Board, everyone just really has the club’s best interests at heart and it’s good to see everyone pulling in the same direction to keep this club as the biggest in the country. That not only goes at board and off the park level, but on the park as well with Arnie moulding the squad to what he’s got now, the boys breaking all the records and becoming the greatest team in history, where the club is at the moment is in a fantastic spot and can only improve from here.
