    I went to the pre-season game last week and I'm actually a bit more optimistic than I thought I'd be. Looks like some of the kids have made decent strides and you could see glimpses from the colts. Kicking goals is going to be an issue though - the forward line looks very undermanned.

    I like the look of the away bar they've set up. Though I still miss the sight of that old scoreboard.

    Well, I thought we were going to have a tough season this year, but the signs from the first two games are very, very positive. Great game yesterday and the boys knew they were in for a 120 minute battle and they gave that. I thought we were in real trouble when Palmer was out and Ellard still missing. Doc has brought a great work ethic and appetite for the contest to the midfield. Blighty, yesterday, what a game. Showed you why he was on an AFL list. Notte mopped up a lot of forward forays, with help from Tobe and Howie. And what about William Reidy. His attack on the footy for that first mark and set shot was fantastic. Great team effort and now we get a bigger test next week with the game against $ubi.....

    Well said swannies a good start so far but reality is just around the corner in the shape of the foreign legion known as $ubiaco.

    Enjoyable day on Saturday.
    With good weather slightly disappointing crowd.
    Kids loved the "kids zone" and each managed to get a footy to kick around.
    No eftpos at the can bar and a bit messy with the new pricing for mid strength beers.
    Well done Swans both on & off the ground.

    Where there any Peelmantle fans there at all?
    Everytime they kicked a goal there was absolute silence around the ground.

    Dreadful display of football by Swans yesterday against a far more desperate and hard working WP who just wanted to win a vital clash a million times more than us.
    Welcome to the hair pulling frustrations of coaching the SDFC for the last 27 years Adam!

    Terrible effort (if there was one) on Saturday.
    Well done however to the club (off field) for their ANZAC commemoration and kids zone initiatives.
    If you're a 6054 resident it's 2 for 1 entry this week as well a free pie & drink (just bring some ID) - full details on the club's Facebook page.
    Kids zone is a great babysitter.

    When was the last time we won by 90 points, Spearhead? My son and I were discussing this yesterday. So I have missed the bookends of wins and losses...

    According to waflfootyfacts statistics it was 96 points in Round 1 2015 vs Perth at Bassendean Oval swannies our last 100 point win was vs Peelmantle at Royalties For Regions Park in 2013.

    Good to get the 4 points vs the Eagles Reserves yesterday at Leederville Oval in tough conditions.

    Good to see some of the inexperienced players have an impact.

    Hitting targets made such a difference. I think Perth running out of legs also helped.

    No doubts a bit of both contributed Noobz0r plus also a far more committed effort in the 2nd half from us as it looked like we were on long weekend mode in that 1st qtr especially!

    Yep, no doubt us actually making it a contest Noobz0r contributed heavily to Perth tiring. Christ, we were letting them run wherever they wanted in the first half.
    As I said Spearhead I was ready to go home and do some gardening (and I hate gardening) at half time and thought stuff it, I'll hang around and at least see what happens. Made me understand the pain of being a Demons supporter.
    No sure who was named our best but i thought these blokes did something to at least fight and keep us in it, in the first half - Riggio, Notte, Warrick and Toby. Doc and Rog were also trying their guts out.
