Name three good things

Recommended Posts

Ok I acknowledge all the mourning needs to happen but I need some optimism to get through today/this week without prescription meds.

3 good things from yesterday:

1. Olivers continued dominance. Easily BOG.

2. Spargo is gonna be a dangerous player for us next year and beyond

3. We can beat Adelaide and season is still alive.

Your turn.

1. The versatility of Harmes. A 22 yr old asked to play on a captain in the first half and then moved to Dangerflop. Daunting for a young kid and did it brilliantly.

2. Petracca’s game. Strong all night, getting better each week over the last month and would love to see him in a final.

3. I’m still breathing.

1. I thought Nibbler was very good- hard at the ball and did some really nice things. 

2. Clarry train rolls on. How about that no look, over the shoulder hand pass at half forward to setup a goal. Freak. 

3. Spargo’s Snap/dribble goal got me out of my chair. Kids’ got spunk.

1. We are in the eight

2. We have talent if lacking composure.

3. The ball is in our court. Time to rally behind them as opposed to trying to splinter the group.

JKH should finally get the arse.

The media should finally apply the blow torch on our player’s and coaching for losing the virtually unloseable.

Maybe, and I’m being optimistic here, Goody might get the arse come year’s end for blatant coaching incompetence.

1 Some good signs from Tyson and Smith

2 Fine games from Petracca, Oliver and Brayshaw

3 Sadly for him, the realisation that JKH is not up to it and will not again be selected.

1. Every remaining game is winnable.

2. This home-and-away season is going to be an exciting ride right up to the end of round 23.

3. Umm... we're just ten points short of being equal top of the ladder. (beats head against wall)

Ok, a better 3. Our players are getting a whole lot of chances to learn to win high-stakes games against quality opponents.

1. Harmes (60 games), Petracca (55), Oliver (51) and Brayshaw (50) (combined 212 games) did more than hold their own against Danger, the Selwoods and Ablett (combined games 956).

2. We have now played under finals pressure and understand you must play full throttle for 120 minutes (better now than if we ever get to play one). 

3. T-Mac continues to develop as an elite key forward.

No-one below the age of 28 did much for Geelong. We will own them in the years to come.

whilst they weren’t our best players Spargo, Fritsch and Smith all showed they weren’t overawed. Whilst there were a few mistakes, all had some pretty good moments. Harmes has improved a heap this year, and his development as a run with player could be crucial.

i will get abuse for this, but with the exception of umpire no13, I didn’t think we suffered at the hands of the umpires as badly as I was expecting. At least it wasn’t as bad as the port game. Maybe we will start to get a better run as we get recognised as one of the better teams.

1; Geelong's midfield 3 Brownlows, 385 All Australians . , 2018 Mature aged recruit of the year     and Duncan.                                    MFC Midfield Average 50 games each ( Clarrie Gus and Trac) and Harmes (hasn't he improved)

2 > Goodwin is right we are nearly there (which is further than we have been)

3 Fritsch ( is a fatter Robbie Flower) and Salem are potential guns.

31/2  My theory relating to Umpiring related to the demands of CH 7 has been reinforced.

1.  Oliver. Continues to blow me away and he's played just 50 games. 

2. Harmes' continued development as a tagger. Did a massive job last night.

3. Others may disagree..but I thought Frost was fantastic when he went onto Hawkins. 

4. ( i know its only supposed to be three...but I need to add that into back that team, that SHOULD have smashed Geelong,  comes HIbberd, Viney and next year Lever and , cross fingers, Gaff. We're getting v close to being elite)

1. We've found a couple players in - J Smith, Spargo & Fritsch.

2. If we can convert opportunites and stop making basic mistakes we play finals

3. Petracca starting to lift

I agree its sad as JKH, imo,  is exactly caught in the middle in terms of abilty between AFL and VFL. Not his fault. Lacks pace and intensity and just isnt up to the grade. Pace of the game leaves him for dead. We cant pick him again.

1.  Harmes a revelation in his new role.  He took on and beat both Divewood and Dangerflog.

2.  Petracca was a beast.

3.  Oliver just unbelievable

1. Add Viney was out of our team to point 1 of Dimmy & Big Red, we are building something special, just have to learn how to win the close ones! Tigers had to take that step and did.

2. I was in the air & missed the game, so didn’t suffer as much as if I watched it live.

3. Tommy Mac just keeps getting better as a forward.

1. Harmes as a run-with player

2. Joel Smith ever so slightly improves with each game and I do think he has a future with us.

3. Milkshakes gives you a positive feeling when he is about to deliver the football.

Worth noting. Once again.

Even Gawn doesn't have many more than that.

1. Fritsch’s contested marking and ball use were in full display last night. He has developed in to an exceptional flanker/wingman - unexpectedly for mine.

2. We took it up to a finals experienced side, on their home sh—heap, in a finals grade game, and showed we can match them. Next step: learn how to win.

3. The season is still alive. The degree of difficulty has no doubt increased, but we’re a long way from dead yet. If we make it now, we will have to win at least one game like this one, which will mean we deserve finals by definition and can take confidence in.
