Can't have that. Got a good amount of ball and I generally like his style too, but missing easy shots is bad football and trying to stiff arm when you don't need to is just dumb, especially when we were cutting the Suns up when we kept the ball moving.
Most things, Bowey debut, Trac up forward more, Oliver actually hitting targets by foot, Jackson having an amazing first half, Rivers' attack on the ball and clean hands, Kosi's finishing, keeping Gold Coast to minimal inside 50s, sort of putting them to the sword (last quarter aside)...
Very nice debut. Was clean with his hands and got the ball out to a teammate quickly, you could tell he was up to the pace of the game and wasn't caught by surprise as most debutants are. Hope they've got him watching a mountain of Caleb Daniel tape.
Can't wait for the Hawks to be flying at 9-0 halfway through the 2088 season on track to break their 67 year premiership drought only to have the wheels fall off to the point where they're talking about poaching Melbourne's 4 time premiership coach by round 19.
Unfortunately it's pretty much impossible for the club to put any kind of feelers out for Clarko without it getting to the media, and that would be disastrous and unfair on Goody at this stage of the season.
"We had a good run but there's only so much you can do with a bunch of campaigners so dumb they let the Brownlow medal favourite repeatedly sit on his own at the back of a stoppage in their forward line"
IN: Taking the game on with ball in hand, respecting opponents in the midfield.
OUT: Boring slow footy, rolling the dice at stoppages.
On current form Touk Miller is the best player in this match. Viney to go to him and make it hard for him for the whole game.
Gold Coast won't make it easy for...
I don't really care what Simon says in pressers, as frustrating as it can be for us fans to see him talking nonsense there's no real reason to publicly discuss the team's failings.
God I hope he says totally different things to the playing group though.
Things need changing up. Can’t rely on a miraculous form turnaround this deep into the season.
A few things I’d like to see:
- Petracca spending at least 50% time forward. Stoppage numbers and Trac’s kicking efficiency indicate we don’t have much to lose using Jordon and Sparrow around...
