  1. [censored] yeah. I’m outside walking up and down the street. Don’t know if I can stand going in to look at the last
  2. May. Lever. they’re trying their guts out, but I reckon one isn’t fit and the other is our coached.
  3. Yep. Party Pies, Pringles and Pavlova for dessert. never been so nervous
  4. The son and heir and his wife are there with tickets. They have been fully briefed and are ready to roll.
  5. What are others' memories of that week? Melbourne colours on tons of kids at school, like Hawthorn now. Alf Browne tipping the Dees Full of confidence, having thrashed the Pies in the second semi. Looking forward to Saturday with the invincible confidence of youth! Going to the final training session at the G. I've been reluctant to post this, but if not now, then when? Everyone knows how much a win means to all of us. Go Dees.
  6. https://www.theage.com.au/sport/afl/geelong-fringe-players-set-to-explore-options-20210911-p58qst.html?btis A virus ran through the cats 2 days before the game. Does that change how we assess our win?
  7. https://www.theage.com.au/sport/afl/geelong-fringe-players-set-to-explore-options-20210911-p58qst.html?btis Hard to not see this in an MFCSS light. The win was just fascistic, but if the cats were crook …
  8. Brayshaw in the middle at the end. Great to see. He offers us much more than Harmes there and clearly more than Sparrow. Leave him there. Who goes on the wing? Harmes? Viney? Yes, I know about the selfless team role that Brayshaw has played on the "defensive" wing - I just reckon we get plenty more out of him when he's on the ball. I wonder who suggested that?
  9. Just put Brayshaw in the middle for a bit - he's a natural midfielder, and I know he's been doing a great job defensively on that wing, but I reckon he'd be better in the middle than Harmes/Sparrow combined. Who goes on the wing? Harmes? Viney?
  10. What are the Center clearance stats?
  11. This. Anyone think that Clarkson would have done better over last three years with our list?
  12. "I'm not worried one bit. Our belief is still really strong in the way we play. They kicked six goals from their forward-50 stoppages, and normally in a game it's one-to-two, so that's a big differential and it's an anomaly. This has echoes of that Prelim against the Eagles. I hope they watch the tape.... MFCSS has me predicting a slide to 5-8 and out in straight sets. That's just how this club affects me. Been there since '64. I feel like sending out a call for John Northey. I know that cool heads are needed, but that was a clear belting (umpires not withstanding). I can't stand Goodwin's press conferences. When he does say something, it's "we won't review the tape, that was unlike us" or "I'm not worried one bit"
  13. When ladder positions are reversed, the hawks kill us. I don’t trust this team.
  14. I'll be interested in the analysis of the game by those who know - how will Clarkson approach this. Of course, he's not got the cattle he used to, and therefore his approach will be different. How will a team down the bottom of the ladder (but brilliantly coached) approach the task?
  15. The son-and-heir just moved into his new home in the 'burbs with his Crows-supporting wife (lovely in all other ways). First object installed - jen-uuuu-wine bought after the game at the 'G Great book - thanks @Supermercado
  16. Just what we don't need... Hope he stays with us next year. https://www.sen.com.au/news/2021/07/05/collingwood-expected-to-approach-premiership-coach/
  17. Completely agree. Hunt was trying to get things going. Having (BBB | Weid | someone) lead towards him and he kicks earlier and we score
  18. Well, who knew? You need an effective forward line to win against good teams like GWS. Dumb bombs into the forward line (Oliver) won't do it. Fritter got the most out of his game today (regularly outnumbered) and TMac is the answer at CHF. But the ball bounced out of our forward line, leaving the backline horrible exposed. Lever and May were there usual outstanding selves, and I thought Petty did OK - I'm warming to him. Salem - fantastic. Hibberd - not helped by a lack of pressure on the ball-carrier. I can't make up my mind about our mid-field. We got pounded there today, and I don't think they worked hard enough without the ball. Jackson was good - especially for a kid who's played a handful of games. Just imagine what would have happened at the end when Hunt got run down. If there's a BBB or Weid presenting, then Hunt kicks the ball sooner. Fix the forward line and we win.
