Bit weird to complain about one player being gifted games, so we should instead gift another player games instead.Liam Henry needs to get defence in to his game.
He puts marginal pressure on the opposition when they have the ball.
Obvs he needs a bigger body, which will come, but at the moment he is being gifted games.
I'd like Western to come in for Liam
Crazy stat isnt it?22 goals in our last 4 games vs Geelong. 14 of those in the 2019 win...
I would say the effort and skill led to the resultI'm nowhere near as disappointed in this result as I was with the Carlton loss. We win against Carlton and this loss doesn't effect the season nearly as much. I doubt many would've pencilled this game in for a win at the start of the season. The effort and skill on display from all bar one in this game was horrendous though. That's my issue with this game far more than the result.
And we used to match up pretty well on Geelongs 3-time premiership team before that.Crazy stat isnt it?
I still remember all 4 games.
2018: 3 goals all game. Kicked the 1st 3 goals vs geelong in geelong. Then the cats kick the next 20-25 goals.
2019: Kick 14.11.95 to beat the cats. Still remember Ed Langdon kicking a goal from the 50 metre arc.
2020: Kick 2.4.16 in the wet Cats kicked 6.12.48. the 2nd goal was kick just before the game ended.
2021: Kicked 3.13.31 last night.
OK, I don't know you from a bar of soap malpaso but I do know salim malik and your suggestion is really disrespectful to a long-term loyal Freo supporter. I think what some people don't get is that we all support in different ways, and we all have different levels of tolerance for the crap that was dished up last night.Then why watch or follow at all?
Geelong being able to chip the ball around as you described was so frustrating. Our players were busy guarding grass and seemingly not paying any attention to the opposition.Credit to them executing an effective game plan in the wet but it was so frustrating watching them chip it around and switch, then chip it around and just methodically get themselves up the ground into a functioning forward line.
We just seemed powerless to stop it, was kind of like Hawthorn when they weren't sh*t.
I wasn't criticising anyone at all. I simply asked a question based on something he said.OK, I don't know you from a bar of soap malpaso but I do know salim malik and your suggestion is really disrespectful to a long-term loyal Freo supporter.

Fremantle will definitely win a flag(s) at some point, but more and more I feel that might not be in my lifetime, and I know lots of others who are getting the same feeling. Each year we go in thinking this is the one we will finally show we are on the march and each year we get a harsh reality check.
So when you are criticising people for their passion, maybe have a think about the person behind the keyboard and what Fremantle means to THEM, not just to you.
Western replaces Switter or Schulz. Both cannot kick a goal consistently. We miss that medium forward type- Sturt and Fredrick. So small down forward. Schulz having to play as a leading forward is awful coaching.I just think Western deserves another chance.
Like for like, Liam has been ok, but he needs more time in the gym
I had him looped as VC and it was literally the only exciting thing about this game. I said during Q2 this has all the hallmarks of a drubbing with some long term injuries thrown in.It seems like we are totally in the wet . You cannot play football much worse than we did last night .We had 21 passengers Beaten in every department bar the Ruck . I bought Sean into my fantasy team this week was happy with the move at 3/4 time. Then even that turned to
Reckon you will find Schultz is one of our most accurate kicks at goal.Western replaces Switter or Schulz. Both cannot kick a goal consistently. We miss that medium forward type- Sturt and Fredrick. So small down forward. Schulz having to play as a leading forward is awful coaching.
Liam was a prime offender of this. Probably coached for it .... I reckon he has been pigeonholed as an 'excitement machine' ... what a freaking millstone to have around your neck.Geelong being able to chip the ball around as you described was so frustrating. Our players were busy guarding grass and seemingly not paying any attention to the opposition.
I saw Dave Mundy explaining this to ... Cats players after the game of all things!I think it’s pointless going into the weeds and dissecting every player.
The whole team was as flat as a pancake. How often do you see so many guys just get run down. Not making any excuses as Geelong showed why they are where they are on the ladder, but Tas to a Thursday game with the travel and disruption that goes along with that was more than telling for me.
You were having a shot , admit it .Well now I,m criticising you. Get of the fence, that performance last night was unacceptable from the CEO, coaches, players down to the bootstudder.I wasn't criticising anyone at all. I simply asked a question based on something he said.
