Changes v Port

Recommended Posts

In: Tyson, Garlett, T Smith 

Out: Harmes, Hannan, Pedersen

Vince will be better for the week off. His good games this season haven’t gotten the plaudits they deserve and coming up against a much more experienced side I want him out there.

Jeffy is a bit of a punt but when he’s on he’s a game changer and this game is all in.

Did you know at 1.55 a couple weeks back which Melbourne had shown up against the Bulldogs? 

Or the game v Norf?

Is this game make or break for us? I just have a feeling we lose, it makes top 8 chances a lot harder. Looking at the run home for clubs like Hawthorn and Collingwood they can easily jump and push us out. So nervous about Friday night.

It's probably best to settle in with a nice red or single malt (With coke) and read a good book (give Westworld S2 a miss, what a write off) and dart in/out of the AFL app for an update. But then, my constitution is a bit brittle and don't want #2 in utero to sense the reek of utter frustration that barracking for the MFC has caused thus far. Not a good vibe.

A single malt with coke! Sacrilege you never never ever put anything in single malt.

I'm very relaxed about Friday's game. I think we have them covered. Only caveat is the umpires. Watch us get Nicholls and Wallace.

I'd have:
Petty for Vince - get a genuine CHB in to build the structure around, Vince the defender with the worst form
Garlett for Hannan - Hannan hasn't nailed the spot so back to flaky Jeff in the hope he can produce
Tim Smith for Pedersen - the 3 big talls plus Melksham/Petracca makes a top heavy forward line that doesn't tackle enough, the extra mobility/pressure of Smith helps
Tyson for Spargo - I didn't want to drop Spargs but the extra mid lets us keep Tommy forward and we get versatility with who goes inside/outside/forward. Probably should be Harmes or Petracca dropped but they have greater upside/flexibility. Strengthen our strength which has to be around the ball

FB: Hibberd   Oscar   Jetta
HB: J. Smith   Petty   Salem
C; Tyson  Oliver   Fritsch
HF: ANB   Hogan  Petracca
FF: Melksham T Mc  Garlett
Foll: Gawn  Jones  Viney
Int: Lewis, Brayshaw, Harmes, T. Smith

Your tongue just before you take your first sip. 

Although I do prefer a little ice. 

Coke is simply poison never to be consumed. It is wonderful as a cleaning agent.

I once heard from an old Scot, that it takes a "just a teardrop of water" to bring out the best in a good single malt.  After all these years following our team OD, you've probably been shedding tears into your scotch, and thoroughly enjoying it, without even knowing quite why.

Hmm!  I fear that would make it a tad too salty!

id be tempted to throw Vince in the middle and tag wines out of the game. 

 

Out: Pedo, Hannan 

In: Frost, Garlett (Frost to play forward as seen in training this week)

We've matched up very well on Port in the past and also play Adelaide oval very well. It's narrow ground is similar to Etihad, which suits us to a T. 

Melbourne by 42 points. Go Dees!

Agreed, since the Hawthorn game (except for the Adelaide game) our first quarters have been deeplorable.

 

 

Even though we have won our fair share of them? They haven't been our best quarter, but deplorable is way over the top.

I always have one ice cube. That is my small amount of H2O.

BTW Chivas is not a single malt. Stick as much coke it as you want. Very strange but... Oh you mean coca cola!

I don't care who is in or out. I just want 22 committed, tough, hard at contest players that ALL turn up to play on the one night for each other. We need to get rid of the tag of under achievers, softies when big games are on. The last 2 losses to Magpies hurt big time and don't forget the Hawks and Tigers games.Need to win this and win it well to get monkey off us. Time is now Dees and the leaders must do that and lead.
