Lewis was gutless today - second to the contest and unaccountable. Not sure what game you were watching

Harsh on Smith, one of our only triers

I'll echo the others and say you were very harsh on Smith.

Also Gus sacrificed himself today to tag Phillips out of the game.  It meant he wasn't as prolific with the ball, but Phillips has been on fire and he shut him completely out of the game.  He deserves some credit for that.

No he doesn't, both were in my fantasy and neither scored!

But in the grand scheme of things, Gus in the middle has been responsible for our uptick in form over the last few weeks. Not sure why you'd move him out of there.

So Gus deserves no credit for tagging Phillips out of the game?  Righto.

Interesting coaching move to put your most recently prolific ball getter in a tagging role.

Needs to be analysed a little more methinks

Why?  Goodwin was probably backing others in to step up, while the coaching staff obviously felt that Gus could tag him out of the game, which he did.  Unfortunately some of our mid tier players didn't step up, so I'd be looking at that more than I'd be looking at the decision to use Gus in a negating role.

According to your comments Joeboy, McDonald, Fritch and Oliver played on their own against Collingwood. 3 versus 22 , a commendable effort to get within 7 goals.You do tend to put players down whenever we lose don't you? It's called a knee jerk reaction.

burning a key mover on a tagging role is not a percentage play ...use another if you want to do that.

Example .. play Stretch and replace Hannan

Goodwin rarely wins the tactical battles against the better teams it seems

The first line was a joke... clearly.

The second questioned the move to use him as a tagger in the first place, not his effort. When you have a player like Gus, and Clarry also, who give you such drive from the middle and are in great touch, why use him in a negating role?

When your getting smashed on clearances, its only so much you can do as a defender....look at the stats 10-18 our mids played their worst game of the year

3 word run down for this thread

A general negative tone to the 3 word analysis and rightfully so. Thought Smith was ok. Probably the only one I disagreed with

Oh well once you get smashed in the clearances all day as we were, many players are going to look bad no matter how hard they try. So the 3 word analysis will reflect that but not inform us a lot.

Viney - Opposite of Jenkins

He's a big man in a small mans body...Jack needs to learn to change his first option from trying to barge through to bringing teammates into the game.

He's not Patrick Cripps and it catches him out against good tough midfields.

Jack will never be a good captain until he learns his game.
