Good points were made On the Couch about Salem, Lever and May being less effective when being forced to play one on one. But I thought their conclusions were a bit weak, they basically said it's up to Salem to still get 35 touches and dominate even if he's being followed around.
For mine it's...
The only way Viney in the midfield can work is if he becomes a genuine defensive midfielder. 10+ tackles a week, sets up defensive side, makes sure he’s first to react and run defensively if the other side win it.
That’s the role our team is lacking. At the moment he’s trying to out compete...
Modern coaches are obsessed with this tactic of kicking wide to avoid rebound 50s.
They absolutely live for boundary throw ins inside 50 and it does my head in.
Would love to know what our goal scoring percentage is from inside 50 boundary throw ins (miniscule i expect) vs how often the...
Petracca, Oliver, Viney are all dumb players, bad ball users, and they pick and choose when they put in defensive efforts.
If we had just one elite user of the ball in our midfield group we’d be so much harder to beat.
Bad/Ugly: Our mids should hang their heads in shame for their efforts tonight.
Racking up useless turn over possessions and letting Hawks stream forward with no pressure repeatedly is an indictment on players who are constantly getting talked up in the media.
Not at all impressed with our back...
Let me tell you campaigners this is a fu**en golden era for blokes who are currently pretty pissed, have been sceptical on Ben Brown since the day we recruited him, and tipped Hawks at the line to the whole board.
We've been a totally different team when playing a bottom 8 side over the last 7 weeks. The line is 41.5 which as far as I can remember would be our highest winning margin for the year if we were to clear it. And it's supposed to rain. Great value to be had for punters
If there's no real pressure on list numbers perhaps Neitschke gets another go to see if he can stay injury free and get a crack at it. Seems highly unlikely but I think clubs see it as good form these days to give players who suffer repeat knee injuries the best possible chance to make it...
Who we going to delist this year? Mitch Brown, Daw, Bradtke spring to mind just off the top of my head, plus Jones and Jetta to retire.
Probably not too many others need to lose a spot unless they're definitely not going to make it.
Same game multi, max bet:
- Hawthorn at the line $1.91
- Frost 10+ clangers $1.20
- TopKent and Gysberts2Bate to get into it in post-match thread over Ben Brown's performance $1.000000001
- Imissfrosty to lash out at 20+ MFC Board posters $1.02
