    Training - Wednesday, 18 July 2018

    Does Nathan Jones post here ? :-)

    Darwin game to be dumped?

    2018 - big win, running away in the second half Didn't see that coming (to quote Mark Neeld) ... we actually destroyed them and they played under cover at Doglands to previous week. And interestingly, Freo won after Darwin too (or perhaps one could say their opponents lost).

    Always interesting to read the truly negative posts to balance some common sense.' No way could one, as of now, call Weideman a debacle. And if I recall correctly at the time Weideman was drafted Tom McDonald hadn't played as a KPP forward at all, or very little. His emergence as a top class marking and goal kicking forward has surprised many here.

    Are you serious? I realise that many here, myself included, hate the Darwin game for potentially causing fatigue the following week [though interestingly whilst I was concerned that we may have faded out in the third quarter v Doggies it turned out to be one of our best third Qs in a very long time.] But to say that a Darwin game caused Viney's foot to flare up is bordering on the ridiculous, and the same goes for a quad tear at training (on a very cold day) nearly two weeks later. If anything playing in warmer conditions could be better for the soft tissues than playing in the cold and hail and rain like Casey did the previous week, and how the guys have been training. And doing an ACL, recurrent at that, a full week after an Alice game in warm but dry conditions - how can one attribute it to the conditions? NikNat did his knee one week after playing in Perth then flying further than Alice - Melbourne - BEWARE OF PERTH!

    Long may Carlscum delude themselves into thinking that SOS is the Messiah, and not as is more widely accepted an appeal for help when in dire straits. Let him lead them down deeper into the paths of darkness and doom..

    daisy - are you suggesting something to do with the poor evolution of the quadriceps?

    Do you actually know that it is the same as Jones injury, or are you speculating? There are spectra of soft tissue injuries you know. As an agnostic I don't believe in gods, or didn't but maybe I will change and believe that there is a god, and not a particularly nice one ??? Oliver and Brayshaw are OK (touch wood).

    Could have, would have, should have. Yes, recruiting isn’t a science and certainly not a precise one. But geez he has found some beauties

    ... and bruise free
  10. Surely possession per se are not how one should judge a KP defender I vaguely recall a game at the G where I think it was Danny Frawley who held some whizz band FF goalless and got BOG with, as I recall, a single possession.

    I seem to recall one club, maybe even MFC, who in a full preseason session were instructed NOT to use their preferred foot. Certainly regularly practicing with the non preferred foot (and hand) fairly quickly improves the skills.

    Brent Harvey says we'll lose Jesse Hogan

    What forward in their right mind would want to play under Lyon? Sure, a negating defender maybe, but a forward?

    So, we are doomed because a retired sneaky little staging sniper says so. Woe is me 😱😱😱

    There is a role for Bugg

    I haven’t had the opportunity to see if he has improved his handballduring his long layoff : certainly would have had plenty of time to work on it. But he is a hard tough player who can kick a long ball. If he gets up to pace he would not be the sort of type one would want to be tagged by. More on the positive side IMO than Bugg. Brad Miller did a massive job on Barry Hall once, and Brent Grgic as I recall may have even had two good games. Watts too. One swallow doth not a summer make What we need are players who can reliably play well, with the great games as bonuses.
