Fritsch and Melk need to start leading. With no movement, the only option for our midfield is to aim long for BBB who is surrounded by 3 defenders. And one of Spargo and Kozzie needs to rove the back of the pack where Saad is floating unattended.

We just look slow. In all aspects: Running, reaction time, seeing options. When we won the flag we looked a step ahead of the game and right now it looks like everything is coming from sheer hard work. There are some crappy games on the board from most of our players, at this stage I'd only be giving Gus votes.

How do we get Brown into the game? Gonna be hard considering he's always taking the best defender right now. Need to kick to space and run onto it I think. I don't know, it's a tough one 

We need to play on instinct, first option is best. We also need a couple of goals early and the confidence will rise. We are probably not going to hit the form we would like to in this match but we need to squeeze out the win. That is pretty much it. My god we just need the win, please just win it.

I’d just go all chips in on Weid for the last few weeks. Brown isn’t the answer. Him making a contest but winning the ground ball is mutually exclusive. Never seen a worser a player when the ball hits the ground.

Oh the irony if Weid were to lead us to the flag 😆

I can’t stand our coaching anymore. Even if we win this, bombing long to small forwards like Spargo, with McGovern on him is bloody madness. Kick it low or wide to space. 

We don’t adapt to our selected side at all.

Our handball turnovers must be a world record.

Our disposal is garbage.

We are not a shadow of last year’s side the way we are playing.

Eight minutes left in the second qtr and I watched us switch sides across half back for what seemed like the first time in weeks.

We raced forward and then fluffed it.

I wish we'd had the courage and dare we used to have to switch and run it through the guts quickly.

We seem a shadow of last year's side

Brown has been crunched by 2 or 3 defenders in about 20 contests 

If we're continually going to bomb fwd, someone has to do that job

So many experts on here can't see he's continually bringing the ball to the ground. Has he been outmarked yet?

He needs to run and jump at the ball to be effective. Kicks in need to be up in the air sure, just not into outer space before coming down. As @Bitter but optimisticalways says, a little extra penetration never hurt anyone

Spagbol has time and space with ball in hand, he needs to park his ar$e at the fall of the ball

    PICKET FENCE'S TRAINING REPORT REHAB  Clarry, Max, Farris-White, Melky, Matt Jefferson, Jakey Lever, Joel Smith & 1 Other I couldn't place. Glad to see the Club being ultra cautious with Clarry's thumb BUT the fact he is still troubled with it is worrying (God I hate Selwood) Got there at 10.50 to see Full match Simulation Game between the Blues and the Whites. Quite clearly the Blues were the A Team and the Whites were the possibles. Some interesting faces in the white Team h

    TOUGH KENT'S TRAINING REPORT I journeyed out to Casey today and was fortunate enough to watch two quarters of match simulation. Here is a brief rundown of random occurrences/thoughts. First of all, there was no Jake Lever (ankle) or Joel Smith involved. AMW is still in rehab and was running strongly. It was Blue (Probables) v Red (Possibles) JvR was in blue. Ben Brown, T-Mac, Hibbo and Tom Sparrow were in red. Gus Brayshaw started at half back for blue and stayed there all game.

He’s moving incredibly well.  Some observations from a match sim drill that lasted about 15-20 mins. The purpose se
