  1. Brad Hill and Ed Langdon. Will probably end up with another contested ball winner who is 'flexible' or defender.
  2. I'm already confused about what our plans are. We are heavily linked to Kelly at Adelaide as a key defender, talk around May going forward and yet Pert says we are looking at a Key forward. Listen i don't like Matthew Lloyd but i think he made a decent point around Tom McDonald and Sam Weideman. It's clear both have talent, but bringing someone in to help them isn't necessary. They both need to be "the man". What forward line in the comp needs 3 talls to function? Both need to get a grip and back themselves in. They didn't struggle last season when the heat was on and Hogan was out. Yet now both looked mentally shot at times. We are very limited on the outside. Collingwood and Richmond have destroyed us just by getting the ball on the outside and bursting away. Ed Langdon won't be worth the picks Freo would want (if we can get him cheap then i'm all for it) and Coniglio will break the wage structure. Honestly i'd be right after Bradley Hill. Speed, good disposal, can play mid or off Half Back, in his prime years and has Premiership experience. Seems like a player who would go to another level in a team that can do all the hard work but lack what he brings.
  3. I was very pleased with May and Lever yesterday. Started slow, but you would expect that. Both did well as the game went on. Also i've liked the look of Baker since he came in. Makes a few inexperienced errors but he's got something about him. Marty Hore will be our player of the season most likely. Not pursuing a Tom Lynch deal now looks like it's killed us. It's nice we have so many good players down back when fit. But our midfield and forwards have no link up and it results in the defence getting put under enormus pressure constantly with quick turn arounds. I think it should be noted how good our defence did yesterday. Pies kicked 9 straight in the last 2 qtrs which blew the margain out, so the full story of how well they stood up never got shown.
  4. I feel like i'm going mad watching Melbourne play. It's the same [censored] every game, just differing levels of [censored] opponents.
  5. I'm not sure what the result will be but i expect a better performance. Going 0-2 isn't great but i don't think it will be a not making finals problem. David King pointed out that the way the draw/results has worked out in round 1 has led to some teams with high expectations possibly starting 0-2. He also fully expects at least one 0-2 team to make the 8, maybe even 2. Personally, i'm not scared of Geelong. Pies looked a bit underdone themselves and if we perform close to our best i think we can beat them, even if we are still ramping up.
  6. 21 of those 22 players played the finals before that game didn't they
  7. I would only do that type of deal if Goodwin is happy with it. I think the past two seasons show that a coach can underperform for years than spike to the top. If Goodwin is committed for the long term stick with him.
  8. I've said it before but a fit Jake Lever playing at the level he was before his injury turns a bunch of those should've won games to comfortably won. Oscar McDonald was in the form of his life with Jack next to him so just imagine how it will look with May back there as well.
  9. He will never be rated ahead of Cripps or Bont by the general AFL public because he isn't as sexy and he's a bit of a shithouse on the field.
  10. They say Trac was the pick of the bunch but don't comment on what he did. I agree with the idea that Jones isn't important for the earlier rounds, would much rather get games into Baker and Sparrow.
  11. If we are going to progress, the classic dominate every stat but the scoreboard approach we had last season needs to stop. We mauled Port in enemy territory last season but they won because we didn't hit the scoreboard enough. At the G with a team hopefully hungry to redeem themselves after the finals exit, we should be beating port comfortably.
  12. Trac to kick 6 and we'll win by 8 goals.
