    Post Match Discussion - Round 12

    Disappointing game. We were half a pace behind most of the day and looked flat. It is a concern that for te second week in a row we were killed in clearances, the difference this week was that this team had the firepower to take advantage of their position. they out pressured us around the ball and therefore the midfield could not give cover to an under performing defence. Good thing there is a break as it will give us a chance to re-charge and re-set for the second half of the season.

    GAMEDAY - Round 12

    Off to sleep now in my part of the world. 7.20am game time for me. I will watch the first half and then shower and get breakfast ready during the half time break. Dees by a lot.
  3. Interchange selection will be interesting. with the Casey game on tomorrow we should get a clear idea of the bench. I would go with ANB, Pedo, J. Smith, Hannan/Garlett depending on Hannan's fitness. Stretch as emergency.

    GAMEDAY - Round 11

    Just ending up a dinner with friends where I am. Good food, wine and friends. A little sleep and wake early to the Dees live win the 6th in a row. May have a small headache.
  6. The Casey game is on Sunday so I would think that any of the emergencies that do not play in the first team on Saturday will play a full game at Casey.
  7. Unchanged winning team for the second week on the trot and almost a full list to select from. Good position to be in. For Casey we have a number of senior team experienced players running around and a number of developing players. Frost, Wagner Hunt, J. Smith, Bugg, Garlett, Pedersen, Weideman, Tyson, Stretch - that is 10 good experienced players that could slot into roles in the senior team. Excellent depth. add to that Kent who is 2 weeks from resuming and AVB who is a month away and that is very healthy. The developing players are Petty, Keilty, Baker, Balic, King and Filipovic. Not sure Johnstone or JK-H will develop much more McKenna and Maynard are injuried but seem to be on track to resume full training in the not too distant future. Looks rosy at the moment.
  8. Emergencies: Billy Stretch, Cameron Pedersen, Tom Bugg, Joel Smith

    What’s really changed since our last loss?

    I have watched replays of the last few games a couple of times and the thing that strikes me is that we are hunting the ball and the players near the ball in a structured pack. Much like a wolf pack. There is a trust that the player contesting the ball will win it. If he falters then the next one takes a turn and so on until they are successful. further away from the ball the players are making position to make sure they either present options for the ball winner or to be in position for the next contest. The players that have come into the team have also given the rest of the team confidence. Go the Demon Wolf Pack.
  10. The team as named with Sunday extras; B: Michael Hibberd, Oscar McDonald, Neville Jetta HB: Bernie Vince, Jake Lever, Jordan Lewis 😄 Nathan Jones, Jack Viney, Angus Brayshaw HF: Alex Neal-Bullen, Jesse Hogan, Jake Melksham F: Tom McDonald, Tim Smith, Christian Petracca Foll: Max Gawn, Christian Salem, Clayton Oliver I/C (from): James Harmes, Charlie Spargo, Dom Tyson, Mitch Hannan, Cameron Pedersen, Jayden Hunt, Bayley Fritsch, Jeff Garlett In: Tyson, Pedersen, Hunt, Garlett Out: – Assuming that Tom gets up who is on the bench and who is the travelling emergency? Harmes, Hannan and Ftich wouls all be there if it was up to me and probably Spargo if he is not fatigued. Pedersen as emergency?
  11. Good solid selection on the basis of the last couple of games and who is available. Looking at our list is interesting at the moment. We have the 22 that have been selected this week and the 4 emergencies, Wagner, Garlett, Hunt and Tim Smith. Any of those 4 could step into the team and fill a role without weakening the team to a great extent. If you add to that Viney about to become available and Bugg, Pedersen, Stretch and Frost playing solid Casey footy we have a good depth of ready players to use in any round. There is also Kent that can more than fill a role when fit. Of the rest of the list, we have Baker, king, Petty, Maynard, J. Smith, Keilty and Filipovic developing. VDB, JKH, Balic, Johnstone and Mc Kenna we have not really sighted through injury and form to be able to make a judgement.

    Clarry Plays Handball

    Oliver not only has quick hands but has the quickness of thought to make sure that what he is doing is a good option. I believe that at sometime in the future we will look back and say that he was responsible for taking delivery by hand to a new level that an awful lot of footballers with try to emulate. I can see some of his team mates already trying different things. A jump into a tackle with a twis of the body to get away and effective handball is one I have seen happening more often. His kicking game will develop but, like Goodwin, I will enjoy watching him knock out his handballs.
  13. I would have one of either Lewis or Vince in the team at any one time. Jones would be in the team as Captain although I believe he is not a great captain during the game quarter to quarter i want to see more speed through the middle. With them there I see us as one dimensional at times.
  14. Interchange for me should be Spargo, Fritch, Smith and Garlett/ANB. Toss up between the last two for me. Do not mind either way. Spargo and Fritch stay after performance last week and I would like to see Smith get a run to see what he has got to bring. I still do not like the look of the team with Vince, Lewis and Jones there.
