JLT Series - Non MFC Games

Recommended Posts

Because I'm a bit bored this week with us not featuring I thought we could get some practice in for the year ahead analysing our opposition.

If anyone watched any of the other games last weekend feel free to post your thoughts.

I only watched a Q & a bit of tonights game and thought the Saints disposal was really poor. Both teams looked average but who brought the standard down or are either not a real threat?

Interested to see how we match up against the Saints next week at Casey...

Conditions weren't real flash tonight, but the Saints seemed to lack a bit of polish while the Blues seemed to want it more.  Having said that, Bolton will want to take any win he can so no doubt he pushed his players a bit more than Richo might have.

McCartin kicked a couple but he looks like an uncoordinated 13 year old who doesn't know what to do with a body that's larger than most.

The bit I saw (and it encouraged me to switch off)- Scummers had flooded back, and the Aints were going laterally back and forth outside 50 before bombing it straight to Liam Jones.  Reminded me too much of our bad old days.  Both sides were scrappy and lacked polish.  Lets see if the Saints clean things up a bit for next week against us.

Collingwood no skill and love the boundary.  GWS are rusty.  Unappealing game so far.

It's the classic pre-season game really.  Both teams missing plenty of their best 22 which doesn't help.

GWS starting to brush off the rust... 4 goals so far this quarter and some good running play

So is Treloar injured? Where's he? Have I been under a rock? They look ordinary without his line breaking.

Interesting Brodie is beating the GWS ruck, Simpson 24-9 but Collingwood can't get their hands on the ball.

Thought Collingwood had one of the AFL's  leading midfields :D

Bucks has this squad going nowhere. Also think they've got a bog ordinary list too.

Could be a blessing in disguise allowing Bucks to get a two year deal in Round 23 last year. Haha. I'll get smashed for that.

As Roosy says, they've got no brand. Okay, GWS are defending well, but they're still playing the boundary hugging style Malthouse was playing almost a decade ago.

Well ... that was a big quarter for all of us who were brought up with feelings of contempt for the Magpie enemy.

I have no interest in watching non dees games.

Only GWS out of these sides worries me at all. We’ll smash the rest of them.

We kick more in a quarter than Collingwood do a game. They have got a lot of players missing though. As they always do.

On the face of it, Pies fans will say they were missing some important players.  

Deep down though, they'll be worried.  It's the same old game play with the same old players.  Bucks is too stubborn to change.

Does anyone know how much game time Chris Mayne had? I see he had 2 disposals at 50% DE. It’s better than last seasons 45% DE I suppose.

That’s about 10k per possession for Mayne, isn’t it?

Not bad if you can get it.

I’d just get two touches and go home as well. At least he’s not greedy.

Yes they are missing players, but they are injured, that's their problem year after year the same players are injured, but dunn is more happy that he is at a better team, and Adam is at a club with a better and younger list, does anyone else notice when ever a collingwood player is interviewed, they always refer to being at the best club, even first year players. They are all brainwashed there, that they are a great team and everything is going well and they are happy with Buckley, it's like they are all north Koreans, who can't say a bad thing about their leaders.
