    You cant say I didnt warn you swannies to turn around at the gate before shelling out your hard earned.
    Absolute rubbish dished up by the Colts, Reserves & for a half by the League sides.

    Our problem Spearhead is that there is no pressure being put on the league players by the ressies below, amongst a few other things.
    It hurts to lose to that mob, i don't handle it at all well... :(

    Probably played our best 45 minutes of football for 3 years in the 1st qtr and a half but much like all other games since 2010 we could not sustain it and were over run by SF especially in the last qtr.
    The bye this week and then 5 games left until the end of the season and Greg Harding's coaching tenure after he announced he was leaving at the end of this season.
    Need to win at least another 2 games to qualify for the finals with games against $ubi, Fremantle Reserves, West Coast Reserves & Claremont still to come!

    Not sad to see Harding go TBH - have never been a fan of his.

    The inconsistency of this years side is frustrating me more than most of the rubbish we've dished up over the last few years.

    Thought Saturday's win over Peel, a pretty good side, was a fantastic win and a game in which we probably concentrated our efforts a bit better than most other games. Kirk and Riggio were fantastic and led from the front. Gaulty didn't have a lot of possession but competed very well against an AFL sized and experienced ruckman. Coming from three goals down in the third and draw to within 7 points when kicking against the breeze was critical and showed a lot of fight. Hopefully we can continue against the dominant Lions this weekend but you must concentrate for 120 mins against the lions, something we haven't done during this season. Go swannies. :thumbsu:

    And 3 straight losses later...............

    Fair dinkum you really have to wonder about this football club sometimes a Finals spot and potentially a Top 3 position at stake and they put up a 3rd qtr that can only be described as E-3 grade amateur standard which was only marginally better than the officiating.
    Thankfully only 1 game left this season and will take a long break over the Summer to consider whether to do something else with my Saturday afternoons in Winter going forward as after 40 years of following SD there is only so much of the same old same old rubbish you can take!

    I'll join you on the sidelines IF we appoint Malaxos. But that may be unfair of me because there may be extenuating circumstances for what went on at East Freo.

    Make that 4 straight losses later......

    What a rabble we are at the minute swannies I am already tipping a record margin loss next week vs WP.
    And regarding the coaching position is Alistair Clarkson available? I reckon only he could improve the skill level of this mob above its current deplorable standard.

    I am only just getting over it Spearhead. Can't believe the lack of commitment for a potential finals spot being on the line.
    The only thing that concerns me about next week is losing to WP. I hate losing to that mob......

    Not sure where our improvement comes from next season.

    Yikes, Greg Harding survived 7 years and retired with a losing record. That's strange.

    To put his coaching record into perspective he came into the role after our 2010 Premiership and not long after 2011/12 we were in dire financial difficulty leftover from poor decisions by previous board and management. Because we couldnt just go out and top up/recruit like a $ubiaco go and do EVERY YEAR his charter was to develop our own youngsters and to make 4 Finals series- 2012, 13, 14, 17 (albeit for only 1 win) was a feather in his coaching cap.

    That puts it into perspective.

    I obviously didn't know.

    I'm not a Harding fan in the slightest so I do have a bias, but outside of Howard, Faulkner, Cary and Turner, has this been particularly successful?

    A little bit harsh UD considering he played a part in the careers of the likes of Naitanui, Walters, Davis, Cameron, Coniglio, Lobb, Broad, Hughes, Logue, N.Jetta, L.Jetta, Pearce, Notte, Banfield, Blakely, Ugle, Bennell, J.Garlett, D.Garlett, Newman, Yarran, Boekhorst et al....one could say he maybe has done too good a job in development as they were considered far too good and got drafted to the AFL!

    Rhys Palmer signed with Swans. As much as I thought he was a spud at AFL level he's a very good pickup, should dominate at WAFL level.

    Just be careful in the crowd - his kicks might hit the unwary.
