Gold Coast United building an 'empire' despite paltry crowds

Gold Coast United coach Miron Bleiberg believes he is part of the making of an Australian football empire.

The Robina-based club are currently performing well on the pitch, suggesting that Bleiberg and his coaching staff have been able to get things right in a very short time, but average home attendances indicate that the word 'empire' is being used very loosely.

Gold Coast have been in top form with six wins and four draws in their last 10 matches and their National Youth team have started their title defence well but an average home crowd of just over 3,000 clouds Bleiberg's comments.

"We finished third in our first year and now we are fourth on the ladder nearly halfway through this season and perfectly placed to mount a title challenge," Bleiberg told the Gold Coast Bulletin.

"We smashed Sydney effortlessly last Friday, going 3-0 up before we stopped playing. Then our Youth team crushed Adelaide, who have a big A-League track record, 5-0.

"We are a powerhouse in the competition and building an empire in Australian football terms."
