However I'm pretty sure that Dew got Lemons (and yes I spelt that right) to continually kick out from behinds and turn the ball over when you have one of the best kicks in the league standing in a back pocket. Lukosius finally starting to take the kick ins about half way through the last quarter and Gold Coast started to move the ball outside their back 50. Rocket science it ain't.The club is obviously a disaster, but the players are contributing massively here.
I’d be shocked if Dew was instructing Lukosius to try and intercept mark in the goal square when a rushed behind gives you the ball back anyway with an opportunity to run further out of the square. Rosas dropped a simple uncontested mark 25m out straight in front when the game was still theoretically on the line. King looks like he’s been taking lessons from his brother on how to lack physicality and butcher opportunities in front of goal.
With a few exceptions they’re not kids anymore. They’re supposedly highly talented footballers with a few seasons at least under their belt, who are now supported by some experienced players in all lines. But they pick and choose when to turn up and they make terrible decisions way too often for professional athletes.
I think it’s a shame when kids get drafted there because there’s undoubtedly an issue with the environment. But they can’t keep dishing this up years into their career and not expect to get blamed for it.
I disagree their main centre square midfield was miller, greenwood and swallow with zack smith rucking. Any team putting that out will be poor. Gold coast just need consistent improvement from their kids. to create a centre square group of rowll, anderson, rankine, bowes and witts. still 2 years away i think.Dew is a spud
Likeable bloke but sh*t coach
No way gc should of lost that game yesterday.
Only Darcy kicked the goal. I think she was genuinely overrawed by the rare spectacle of Freo kicking it between the big sticks and believed that Walters did in fact make the best decision of his football career.She was sticking it to Darcy around Walters passing it off.
It was funny.

Nic has no peer at hitouts but he’s a witches hat around the ground now. Darcy takes marks all around the ground, links up, kicks goals. Plus he’s got some real craft now with directing the ball from taps, not just getting a hand to it.Darcy has been seriously good but Nic Nat and Hickey take a sh*t on him this year.
