  1. Round 22 - Non MFC Games

    Where is this 'orange hurricane' we always see against the Dees?

    Pressure - we need a heap of intensity around the ball. They aren't a massively physical side so we need to hit them hard BUT intelligently. They will run off us and handball and link up if we get sucked in too much. We need to pressure them with the ball and then spread and run as soon as we get the ball back and KICK THE BLOODY BALL. (Fewer handballs please)
  3. Round 21 - Non MFC Matches

    Patton is a jet - will be a top 5 player in the comp in a year or two me thinks.

    Filled with dread about this game. Will be genuinely surprised if we have enough class on the park to kick a winning score. And with no Watts or Salem I'm not sure how we even link up to get the ball inside 50. Admittedly St Kilda haven't been in amazing form which is similar to us – but they have hunger and intensity which can snowball into impressive momentum as they run and run, similar to GWS. We need to be prepared for that.
  5. Round 20 - Non MFC Matches

    How the freakin Fracking hell did we lose to this mob of kangaroo feelers? I'll put down some serious Dollarydoos on the bloody Magpies doing the same to us too. When will all this carp end...
  6. GAMEDAY - Round 20

    Went to the pub to watch the game. Have now left the pub as that was basically the most pathetic quarter - where is our intensity and ferocity? We should have been bashing up on this mob. But instead they're just running rings around us and we look very very ordinary.
  7. Round 20 - Non MFC Matches

    Cats V Swans in Geelong. Will be hoping for a big BIG win by the Cats tonight against the Swans. Not sure it will happen with Dangerfield in the stands - but we need the Swans to lose to ensure they're not getting too far ahead of us in the 8.
  8. Post Match Discussion - Round 18

    This might be obvious to some, but having now watched the replay and recalling some small frustrations during the second half watching at the ground, I reckon we're still lacking a certain type of player in our forward structure. That sort of player would be the one to compete and jump high when we have to bomb into our forward 50. Get their hands on the ball at its highest point and either mark it or bring to ground (directly in front of them ideally) - basically what Daniher and Ben Brown are doing. We've already got this player on the list: Weideman. As soon he's ready to play in the seniors regularly - which is hopefully at the start of 2018 after another pre season - we'll have the perfect balance. In the mean time I think we haven't quite got the balance right - Hogan showed on the weekend his best position is a lead up Cente Half forward who can use his pace and agility at ground level.
  9. GAMEDAY - Round 17

    No surprise - Walker heavily involved with OMac his opponent.
  10. GAMEDAY - Round 17

    Hoping our experience of playing on this ground in this climate gives us a big advantage. They have a pretty tall team so if it gets slippery it should play into our hands with our pace. Just need to play four quarters and we'll be in the game - GO DEES!
  11. Clayton Oliver incident

    Who knows what was said to Oliver but what was said only occurred once Clarry turns his back and heads to take the game on again - anyone that has a pot shot at a player because they have the protection of being a supporter and sitting on the other side of the fence is just plain cowardly. His reaction of surprise says it all - he shouldn't have said anything in the first place.
  12. GAMEDAY - Round 16

    Really missing Watts and his kicking into the F50 - no bloody idea why but nobody else seems to be able to do it.
  13. Tommy Bugg on report

    Bloody hell thats a long time to train with your mates and not play - hope he can turn it into something positive.
  14. Dom Tyson re-signs

    He is a ripper - just needs to be fractionally quicker with his decision making and also sharpen his kicking/handball skills by about 5% and we have an absolute star. Pretty sure Jobe Watson had similar inefficiencies that he worked through and started playing to his strengths. Needs to get on his bike a bit when he gets the pill - gets caught too often. And his kicking from a back flank is always hazardous as he tries to do too much - needs to spend some time with Bernie who waits and waits and then pulls the trigger on the best option rather than rushing a speculative kick into the Centre Half back region. Feel like the best footy of his career was his first year with us which was probably a bit more care free as the 1st/2nd top mid - looks like he thinks a bit too much about each disposal now. I trust him to get back to his best.
  15. Changes v Sydney Swans

    Time for Kent to come back in if Garlett's out.
