POST MATCH DISCUSSION - Round 21

Recommended Posts

Well everyone... we did it.  We made hard work of it and we would all have been as nervous as we have been all year.  But we did it.  We responded to a fortnight of very poor football and have kept ourselves in the frame.

I'm super proud of the club.  When the pressure was on we stood up to be counted and won - we are now back in the eight and in there with a huge chance of breaking the finals drought.

I'm emotionally and mentally exhausted, but gee was it worth it!  DEMONS!

We finally stood up when it counted.

Huge win, and with games to come vs Brisbane and Collingwood, missing finals would be a disaster.

Angus Brayshaw, what a return.

Also, Gus Brayshaw showed today not only what a quality player he is but how important he can be to our football side in the coming years.  Wonderful game and almost brought a tear to the eye to see him out there.

Welcome back Gus!  Back where you belong.

Was worried when he got the head knock but he went on with it.

Great four quarter effort from him and one of our best.

Well I've been critical of our leaders and older players all year.

Jones was superb. Pederson was fantastic. Lewis and Hibberd did everything they could - including some fantastic body on the line efforts in the last.

Well done lads. Makes me proud to be a Demons supporter.

Mr. Negative here,

Glad we won, but we were shithouse.

StKilda were just much worse.

The forward entries still a major concern, players bombing away when they should be looking around. 

Pedo, well done, puts that ridiculous Pederson vs Weideman debate to bed.

Brayshaw, a great return game.

Hannan clutch.

You are welcome to your opinion, but holy hell am I glad I don't support like you and look at the negatives first.

That third quarter though was bad. We look cooked at this time of year. Hopefully fitness staff can do something about it this week.

The umpires killed us in the 3rd quarter, We were tired but hung in there.

Pedo best game ever. Gus welcome back.

Jones back to his best,

Defining match. When the Aints got to within 4 points we were either going to fold (effectively going backwards) or make a stand. Great stuff Dees. Here we go.

My two big measures for success this year were beating the Saints and North.

One out of two ain't bad but .... well you know what I mean

Disagree, got lucky with some poor entries when we had clear options open. 

An example is Lewis bombing in and Harmes taking a mark 2 on 1 when Weideman was all alone 40 out. There were many other times similar things happening but they get overshadowed because of individual efforts. I'm glad we have players capable of winning 2 on 1s but I'd rather we played a team game.

Lets not kid ourselves, StKilda were as bad as a I can remember a team in the 1st quarter.
