So much doom and gloom!
We're not that far off it, we need an injection of class and we probably would have won yesterday if Sidebottom was playing for us.
May and Lever in the backline were a glimpse of what's to come and with Jetta coming back in there it has a ripple effect through the team by freeing up other players to move up the ground. We may have our necessary midfield class already developing on our list - Salem, Fritsch and KK (who was very promising at Casey) can move onto the wings and give us an injection we need. Sidebottom was tracking something like Salem at the same age.
TMac and Viney are clearly playing injured but we've been persisting because Goodwin wants to win if possible, they do need a rest. We're really missing Melksham in the forward line, but Hannan looks to be finding some touch and Weed looked back to me. Hunt is also making some good progress and provides a point of difference.
I don't think we need another KPF, we need more midfield class and run. I'll be looking closely at Ed Langdon in our next match against Freo. We've been linked to him previously and he's out of contract this year.
I'm confident Goodwin is the guy.
