    Is Goodwin the right guy....

    Not sure if you've heard, but Goodwin is constantly saying that we will get better as we play and learn from these big games, that the sky is the limit, etc... I agree. We're already a high-scoring team, but we could be scary good if we could improve our efficiency going forward.

    Exactly how I saw it on the box. Was shocked at first and then admired the endeavour - which got the desired result (and unlike others, I didn't think much of Trac's game overall). Playing for time at Kardinia from the point Trac had it would have been a recipe for disaster (a different disaster) He engineered a stoppage deep in our forward pocket. It was the responsibility of others to then lock it down.

    I know what you say, and I thought the same last year,,, and I think we said the same about ANB a couple of seasons back, and also Harmes to a slight lesser extent, a couple years back. Also Jones, TMc, OMc, Pedo, Weide, Gawnus went under the radar a few seasons back... I think the club holds more faith long term in JKH than we all do. And they haven't done a hell of a lot wrong in the past few seasons (Fritsch). SO i'm watching with baited breadth, to see where JKH and Stretch, and pozzibly CWagner, Lockhart, etc, end up and take us to? Apart from spending too much here and there, on players. .

    Maybe someone that was at the game can tell us if Trac has options behind him for a short pass to milk the clock. From the view on the TV he had no options sideways or forward for a short kick like @Dr. Gonzo posted above. If anyone is willing to sit through the last two minutes again you will see the umpire clearly signal play on before Trac kicked the ball.

    Wouldn't that be something. Right as hes playing his best footy in a new role. Cant afford to lose another good player.

    Changes vs Adelaide

    JKH has zero weapons DV8, with no obvious potential upside in any footballing discipline. He's become less damaging if anything. Kent, Bugg, Frost - these players at least bring something to the mix.
  13. not sure how many times it needs to be said but gaffs defensive game is a weakness, not a strength. i'd much prefer steven may. the peace of having oscar mcdonald either at casey or on the 2nd best tall would add years to my life

    Were you also reminded of us vs. Collingwood last year with Watts on the end of it in open space after two links from half back?

    Changes vs Adelaide

    A few of our players got burnt by teammates not looking, yesterday. And Jeffy was burnt by JKH, who blazed away, skying a ball thru the points. Jeffy would have walked into goal on that occasion. Strong run, hard work. Not, too bad, for one game. Could have been better, could have been worse. But no consolation for Hibberd.

    1. Trac standing up in a big game 2. Oliver. Always and forever. 3. Harmes doing an amazing job tagging

    Is Goodwin the right guy....

    I agree fifty; we are closing in on the more experienced teams quickly. The thing that caused us to lose, was a lack of composure/inexperience. mostly with the ball. We missed so many opportunities in attack, snapping for goal, instead of making to the right choice. So many players run and carrying the ball thru wing/half-forward,,, only had eyes inline with the goals, instead of a more lateral vision. We missed far too many clear options, by not seeing the switch to loose man from wing/half-forward,,, to the opposite HFFlank. The Opp defenders were in line with our kicker, and our goals.... and the fat side was mainly open, with a loose man, often. We are still wasting for too much offensive ball, blazing away mindlessly toward goals.

    Run home to Finals - 2018

    If we only beat Adelaide out of the harder marches and end up with 12 wins only, we can make it if the bombers upset port or the hawks, according to the ladder predictor results i entered

    Has anyone heard anything about Harmes having a broken hand?

    POSTMATCH DISCUSSION - Round 18

    Agree. Made stranger/worse by his elite basketball background. Basketball 101 is managing the clock and preserving a lead at the death. And rule number 1 is not giving the ball back to the opposition. If you have it they can't score And you have achieve that by holding it as long as you can yourself before making a pass to team mate who repeats. You don't even take an open shot if it involves giving the ball back with time for the opposition to score and win or draw (which at the elite level can occur even if say 4 points down with only 10 seconds left - a quick score and a turnover under the basket and you can still draw or even win if one play is a 3 pointer). Which is what jeffy did. Trac would have run that scenario a million times in his basketball training.

    Is Goodwin the right guy....

    I agree. Coaches almost need to be psychologists these days to get the best from their players. I don’t think he should smash them in the media. Just not let them hear they lost due to things they can’t fix quickly like inexperience, even if the closed door stuff is different. Players listen to all of it.
  23. I think the nature of our losses this year indicate demonstrate how valuable Gaff could be. He covers a lot of ground and is regularly in the eagles top runners. That two way effort is something we miss. It was visible in the last play against the cats, it was massive against the saints and has played a part regularly as we watch teams stream past us and we don't follow. Put him in for JKH and we win this week. We need to be all in.

    POSTMATCH DISCUSSION - Round 18

    The bolded bits are true. And after we did get get in we made a number of mistakes - jeffy should have looked for a pass rather than a shot on goal - even if it meant going backwards, A pass to someone on 50 would have allowed us to eat up 30 seconds. Even if he couldn't find someone another ball up would have been likely given the congestion. Once he elected to go for goal he only had one option - kick the goal. Then from the kick nu why did we not flood back and get numbers clogging up their 50? And why di Vince spilke the ball away. Given we didn't flood back how did we allow them to transfer it up the corridor. Surely we had to be man on man. Then Frost gets - as RJAY 9i think) - so rightly says, gets caught in no mans land and allows the tic tac. And no one in the hole in front of Touey? Beggars belief. But all that said i disagree with the unbolded bits. Trac simply had to hold onto the ball as long as possible (the umpire had not called play on when he kicked it) and then look for a short target. Surely at least one would have been possible - and if not that is another failing. It was only 90 seconds to go. Even one chip kick then the long bomb to to the boundary would have eaten 20 seconds away. Three chip kicks and the long bomb would have iced the game. Trac looked as if he though t we needed to score not them.

    Yes, the Salem goal was pretty similar, although the Geelong goal was done more easily and fewer links in the chain! I was also reminded of the Montagna goal at Etihad. And the Mcarthey goal for Freo at the G.
