Post Match Discussion - Round 7

Recommended Posts

Superb win today.  We were tough, we ran them ragged and didn't give up, even in the last term when we were out on our legs.

If anyone complains about us stopping in the last term then don't listen to them.  Seriously, we've just played our third game in twelve days and we were always going to get tired.  We did the right thing by kicking 2 quick goals to start off the term and we killed off the contest.

The big positive for me was the game of Gus Brayshaw.   32 touches and plenty of clearances was bloody brilliant.  The confidence is back and, outside of a few poor kicks, he is showing the footy world why he was the third pick in his draft year.  What an addition he is to the side.

Hogan has continued his great season, Jones was terrific and our backline is working an absolute treat now.  Our forward line worked well again, too.

With Viney and Salem to potentially come back into the side we are really getting things going, now.  I'll take the 39 point win and if anyone is annoyed about giving up a few late ones then just laugh at them.  This is a fantastic performance from the side after some serious game time in the last week and a half.

Not even close to good enough.

Would have been an 80+ point win if we had any semblance of killer instinct.

We got the choccies... let's not get too carried away

Their kicking... atrocious. Flattered us somewhat.

On the plus...better use of the ground. Better linking. 

Long way to go ;)

4 points. ..is 4 points

Wins are good!  We win when we should that’s now done.  Still need to get ruthless and not leak goals.  Percentage is going to decide our fate.  Must not leak late goals.

We win a game of footy by close to 7 goals and do it with ease, and this is the garbage our supporters serve up.  You should be embarrassed.

We played really well for 3 quarters. Positioned ourselves beautifully to pile on a 60+ point win, but went to sleep in the last quarter.

Thats 2 weeks in a row we have clocked off in the last quarter.

Gus and Clarrie were fantastic. Yes the game wasn’t perfect, but was very concerned with this after two games so close together before so personally I am happy we won the last quarter despite the Saints having few on the bench.

 

need to build on this, win the next two and get structures right so we are full of confidence comes the game against the Crows

Good easy win, BUT STOP GIVING UP EASY GOALS AT THE END OF QUARTERS!!! 

Those last two goals from the saints were so soft and all because we had decided the game was done. We should’ve won today by 60+, still no kill instinct. In the position we were in so many other teams would’ve powered on and murdered the Saints instead we given them charity goals at the end. 

Its the next step we need to take and we seem to refuse to do it. 

Saying that, happy with the win. Let’s get some momentum.

Feels like a loss. Wasted opportunity to improve our percentage.

A wins a win. Years gone past we would of dropped that. Need to back this up and carry momentum fwd.

A couple of ptetty serious issues need to be adressed. Our handballs in close are some of the worst. We really need to clean that up. Plenty of times today we could cleared congestion with a well placed kick.

Can't agree with the negatives above.

First time in a long time we looked like a fair dinkum footy team!

The two negatives are we did stop. They had 1 fit player on the bench. Shouldn’t have let them back it, you can trace their goals all back to over handballing which is a massive problem. They need to know when to play for meterage.

 

positives is we cracked in, Brayshaw was great, Jetta also great, Fritsch looked good , Harmes did some nice things this week. Lever looked good and Gawn was fantastic.

Oliver I love but he does over do the handballing at times.

It's true though. We miss finals by less than 1% last year, and 2 weeks in a row we have had teams beat and couldn't punish them. Hawthorn were absolutrly ruthless with us a few weeks back.

That being said, the first 3 quarters were very good. We had control of the game, applied good consistent pressure, and had an even spread of contributors.

Yes I agree, it was prob a 7/10 performance considering the opposition and still won by 7 goals.

Yes disappointing to concede the last 2 goals but there are more important things to work on.

You got an opinion of your own, or just want to play the man?

Lets face it Wiseblood, its a lot easier to point out the one or two bad points in a few sentences, rather than have the intelligence to critique the game....

Wake up to yourself this will come back and haunt us at the business end of the season.
