    Great news for one of the nicest blokes in footy. I wish him very, very well.

    I spoke to Tmac at training, decision not his, he feels fine but no risk policy, how he pulls up on Saturday as Goody said Nev is fine

    Big loss for them, and I've been watching fair bit of the saints this year and hes definitely been in their top 5 players each week.

    Goodwin said he expects both Jetta and T Mac to play.

    Tyson will never be good until he is playing as an inside mid. He is not an outside runner, and Goodwin trying to make him one, won't work. He is slow and a poor user of the footy. What he does exceptionally well is win clearances. As for the Smith vs Weideman argument, both bring different things to the table, but bottom line is Weids is the future. We need to get game time into him, and the time to do that is now. Our backline is my biggest worry, for which there is no great solution. Frost is major NQR, Petty is untried and raw, and that's about the depth we got going on. We have lost a lot of quality down back in recent years in Frawley, Dunn and Howe (say what you like, the two boys are doing very well at Collingwood). We've only regained Lever in the process. That's 3 out 1 in, and now he is injured. We are really thin for backline depth and it's a major worry.

    I will be watching this game now, hoping Trenners plays a blinder, can’t remember an ex player in my many years of following the Demons that I want to not just do well, but to reignite a career that should have been fantastic.

    Yeah superb bump, ran past the ball and with force bumped a bloke not expecting it and bruised his lung, which saw him coughing up blood. Extremely courageous act. Lucky not to connect with TMac's head, or it would have been weeks, even though it was not deemed worthy of a free kick to us, as was no other incident in our F50 the whole night, even though the ball was in our F50 twice the time of Port, who got multiple frees, 50's and suspect marks and goals. Sorry for the umpire rant I am still angry at them.

    I like that team Werridee Frost to play a blinder

    Well I should not have mentioned the beer. About five minutes before kick off the German guy behind me spills his whole beer all over me. I am talking from shoulders to backside and all over my seat. Not happy Ralph. Anyway a great game because everyone sat down and you could watch the play. Apparently because Sweden were 3-0 up on Mexico all Germany had to do was score and they would be in the next round in place of Mexico. And then of course goal.... disallowed.... VAR .....and goal-to Korea. Extra time went 15 mins with the German goal keeper playing as a striker and we all know what happened..runaway goal to Korea. A joy to watch in the end. My beer spilling mate shook my hand... I toldmy son he should have bought me a T shirt !! First time that Germany have missed the play off rounds since 1938. Of course there was no German team between 1938 and 1990 which the Guardian reporter failed to point out. Now time for the late games !!

    And just imagine what it's going to be like with 48 teams at the 2026 World cup ... more poor teams like Saudi Arabia & Germany.

    why can't we walk and chew gum at the same time, od? if we want to be an ongoing successful club we have to focus on the short term, the medium term and the long term (simultaneously) and in all aspects of the club simple really.....

    Neither would I. Weid is on target to be a good player for us.

    It's pretty simple - play like we did against Port and we win this game of footy. Even if our forward entries still aren't that flash (let's hope they continue to improve, though) their backline isn't great and there's a big chance Jimmy Webster doesn't play either. We will have more than enough entries to kick a winning score.

    Thoroughly enjoyable guys. Great to reminisce with Flash, and to hear about his ongoing love and respect for the Dees and his four prospective father sons. He seems like an absolute gentleman.

    I understand people are frustrated by his form, but I draw the line at accusations that are 100% conjecture with no basis in fact. Don’t make things up when you have no idea if it’s true or not. You might think it harmless, but it doesn’t take long at all for someone’s speculation to become the common wisdom.

    Pardon my ignorance, but how did the Weid manage 7 goals from 4 effective kicks?

    Pretty confident about this game, well if we can't win this game we don't deserve to make finals. I'm predicting a 60 point victory. My Preferred Team B: Jetta, O.McDonald, J.Lewis HB: Hibberd, Frost, Vince C : Fritsch, Oliver, Jones HF: Neal-Bullen, Hogan, Petracca F: Weideman, T.McDonald, Melksham FOLL: Gawn, Brayshaw, Viney IC: Salem, Tyson, Harmes, Stretch EMERG: J.Smith

    It didn't look good on TV 'Dr' but it wasn't all his fault. You could see him looking to give off but it was pretty obvious there were no options, what were his mates doing? Lack of communication from teammates around him also didn't help.

    I agree Roost it and that diesel smog does not seem to be worrying the Tigers. Perhaps it is the wire fence that makes all the difference.

    I think we are at a different stage. Last year: new up and coming, inconsistent with a game plan unfamiliar to opposition, able to beat anyone on our day ("upset" wins) but still seen as an easy scalp by the bottom teams. This year: more comfortable with our new game plan enabling us to win every game against the lower teams (and beat them well). Top teams now recognise us as a threat, have had time to study our plan and know how to counter and put pressure on us (ie we can't "upset" them). Ideally next year is: Comfortable in executing our game plan under pressure, and also aware of possible exploitations and limitations. Players have enough experience and group familiarity to shift mid game to plan b tactics.

    Yeah that was such a fantastic set of games. Ending was pandemonium The mexican fans all biting their nails and looking at their phones in the crowd in the last 20 mins lol this world cup has been amazing. Lots of good goal replays and discussions over on www.reddit.com/r/soccer Check out the sheer joy of the Korean broadcasts: https://streamable.com/9cwhq goal 1 w/ var https://streamable.com/cjij3 Goal 1 /w var https://streamable.com/5xhap goal 2 https://streamable.com/h1ygm goal 2

    Until we beat another side in the top 8, this question will continue to be asked. Agreed. We've had two shockers - Hawthorn and Collingwood. The Richmond game fell apart but we showed significant positive signs. We should have beaten both Geelong and Port and, had we done that, we would be equal top of the ladder without this question being asked. But we didn't win those games, and so we deal with this question and the uncertainty until we beat someone better.
