Match Preview and Team Selection - Round 9

Recommended Posts

I was feeling quite confident about Sunday's game until I read the Carlton Big Footy preview thread. One of their Rhode's scholar supporters doesn't rate us. He says we are "the epitomy of downhill skiers"

This would be from the epitomy of semi-literate blues fans.

Carlton are better than 1-7 and have some genuine matchwinners and i feel they match up very well on us. if we are off in the center and contested footy, they will hurt us, We wont get 83 Inside 50s this week.

Have you watched them play much this season?

Carlton are terrible, barely VFL standard skills, Essendon must be in complete disarray to lose to them: and even then the Bombers had 7 more scoring shots. Melbourne by lots.

Carlton fairly predictable with their spread, and also pressure to their backline could create a lot of opportunities for our fast little fleet. Us by 40 with no lookin's in the last quarter.  Hope Garlett gets a go again.

The line is at 33 

37 is kinda falling over it....but id take it.

We've struggled often against this vermin. Sunday will be no different imho

One of the big problems for us against the Blues recently, has been poor inside 50 entries,  where Simpson or Docherty have simply mopped up and started their attacks on goal. Docherty is out and with our 3 key forwards we now enter our 50 a bit differently and also demand a different opposition defence set up. 

They should get a couple of good players in the Captain and Marchbank back, but today might lose a couple of handy brothers.

Goodwin's presser gave strong  hint that Jeffy might return which i think is great, especially against the old side, always something in that i reckon.. so it begs teh Q..who would make way for Garlett?

Looks like Jack and Jeff in. That means Spargo May be rested and I would think Tyson is looking down the barrel.

The curnow's will get suspended, AFL never lose an appeal, ed's defence was just ridiculous, saying he was not looking at umpire, we would best them anyway, but we need to win real big anything under 36 points is a lose. There defence is real weak, they put everything into winning last week, bombers are the fattest team.

No idea what will happen but I’d much rather:

Ins: Viney, Garlett

Outs: Tyson, ANB

I think ANBs game last week will have saved him and Goodwin likes to rest first year players after a few games.

ANB out after that game last week? Let him try to string a couple of good games together, gain a little confidence I reckon.

Isn’t this only the second time the AFL have chosen to appeal?

Give Spargo a breather. ( Not that his efforts warrant an omission). Perhaps one of the other youngsters Fritsch. 

I would really like to see Garlett line up against this mob

Viney straight back in.  Goodwin says ‘playing Carlton is like playing a bottom VFL club.  The run against these magoos should get the last of the rust off.  Zurich, our wonderful sponsor, is offering a special on life insurance to any Carlscum player if they pay up (in a brown Visy bag) before the bounce’.

ambulance officers, afraid of ice addict attacks, are flooding out of Collingwood and will be on standby at the G.

Yeh well this is where we can disagree.

I didn’t view his game as anything great. A small forward who got on the end of a few thanks to the sheer number of inside 50’s we had is nothing impressive. In general play, he continues to turn the ball over, scrap kicks forward without looking or fumble the ball in the contest.

I get that Goodwin likes him, but what exactly is he providing our side that we don’t have? Apart from a large tank? It’s fine to be able to pressure the opposition. But if you turn it over yourself, your pressure acts are cancelled out.

When Garlett is in form, he is a much more valuable player. And I’d bite the bullet in a game like this and bring him in against Carlton.

I just listened to Goodys press conference and reading between the lines, I don’t think Garlett will be back yet.

Jeez he'll hopefully be hungrier than a fatty at a Big Mac party after on being on I'm Not a Celebrity Get Me OUt of Here after munging down on stick insects for a few weeks. Hungry like the wolf. Or not. In which case you have your answer. Maybe he'll kick the lights out, get some late season games kick 7 in the GF for a flag and retire. Stretch goal for JG.

Spargo instead of ANB I think.

Having now heard Goody’s presser, it’s  pretty clear that Garlett is close but won’t play this week.

I see it being, (and hope) Viney for Tyson.
