Gold Coast in tatters after drubbing from Phoenix

7:29 am on 27 October 2009

The Gold Coast football coach Miron Bleiberg called off a video review session for his players to prevent further undermining their confidence after their embarrassing 6-nil loss to the Wellington Phoenix on Sunday.

After convincingly winning their first three matches to back up billionaire owner Clive Palmer's boast that his club would be crowned as unbeaten champions in their inaugural season, Gold Coast are facing a major test of their character.

But coach Bleiberg says they have to make changes to remind everyone of the loss and that they can't expect to turn up for the next game.
