ISL 2022-23: Coach Aidy Boothroyd disappointed with the performance against Goa

Jamshedpur FC coach Aidy Boothroyd hasn’t given up on his positive attitude after losing two out of four matches. While interacting with the media on the evening of the match at JRD Tata Sports Complex, he said that Hyderabad team is performing very well. There is team spirit in it.

Coach disappointed with the performance against Goa

We were very disappointed with the result and performance against FC Goa. Two goals were scored in the first half itself. The second half was better. Hoping for a better performance in the next match. We are all very excited and looking forward to the next match. Regarding the mistakes made in the match against FC Goa, Boothroyd said, “After 30 minutes, when we were down 0-2, when we were not able to apply the strategy and we were in a position where we had to chase the game. was needed.
Sometimes, you get to see results and performances that are really bad. FC Goa is a good team. But we weren’t close to our best. Strategically we didn’t do what we should have done in the first 12 minutes of the game but I am happy with the second half.

A good start is compulsory in any match.

On the question of the team faltering in the second half, Boothroyd said, “We have played against those teams which started well. When you look at the match against FC Goa, we did not start well. But against Odisha FC we started well. It’s all about putting it together and making sure the recipe works.
Talking about the pressure on ISL champions Hyderabad, he said that there is pressure in every game and every training session because we want to give our best. Every club is different. Hyderabad FC has been a stable team for three consecutive years. Despite being the Shield winners, we are a different team now because we have different players and coaches.

We have lost two-three players to other clubs. We are in the reconstruction phase and we are moving forward. I don’t think there is more pressure on this game than any other sport. We have prepared well. We have a game plan and let’s see if we can implement it.
When asked whether Wednesday’s matches are being played with one Indian defender and one foreign defender and two foreign forwards. “I have never managed a team with the foreign player rule. Finding that balance has been a challenge.

You learn something after every match. I found it difficult to balance when and where to get my foreign players on the pitch. But hopefully, it will improve and we will improve it.

Did you say about the performance of J Emmanuel-Thomas and Harry Sawyer that every player is different? Some players take longer to settle down. In Jet’s case, he brings quality to the team and it’s about giving him the opportunity and the right time to be the player he can be. We have given him a rest and I think his time has come.
