If I'm thinking of the right game then it was absolutely soaking wet that night from memory and against one of the all time best Ross Lyon teams defensively.The last time neither Ziebell or Cunnington lined up for us was in Round 13, 2013. We were done over by Freo in Perth by 38 points and only scored 4.5-29. The club has only had fewer scoring shots 4 times in its VFL/AFL history.
In what way has JP cost us? He is one guy who attacks the ball, the man and goes for aggressive kicks. At times they might cost us, but at least he is trying to be aggressive!Out: Ziebell, Atley
In: Murphy and Walker/Scott
Give Xerri another crack at it (until Larkey is ready) and I’m done with Atley.
Not sure Daw is required in the back line, so would only come in as a forward, if he is to come in.
I’m all for giving these kids a crack, they look like they have something.
Pittard on thin ice, 2 weeks he has cost us dearly.
Wanted Walker in the side for purely selfish reasons, but happy with the team that was named. Will be interesting to see who out of the eight defenders will be moving up the ground. Would make sense if we wanted to play somebody on Bont, which would suit either Hayden or McDonald.
This was only 4 months ago, Scamper better try something..I've wondered if Shaw might try that.
I reckon it's worth a shot myself.
I can only assume he is back as we need to strengthen the def with Hayden moving to mid hopefully to tag bont. Daw not quite ready as yet
I seem to remember that the feeling was that Lachie was going to go at 2 and we were going to pick Scott Gumbleton. No one could argue that Lachie didn’t put his body on the line for our club and he doesn’t deserve keyboard warriors hanging sh*t on him.North recruitment team we supposedly aggressively split between taking Lachie Hansen and Joel. Think it caused a rift within our FD from memory. Our head recruiter wanted JS. He was right.
I want to see what happens at the end of the year. It’s hard to make too many changes over a single off season and you’ve also got to factor in contracts as well. Pretty much the whole list comes out of contract over the next 2 years. There needs to be a cleansing.Starting to wonder if being an assistant before the main gig can interfere with (or at least slow down) a coach's ability to come in and clinically reshape the list and lineup.
For all the great rhetoric things are starting to look and perform like they always did.
Hope I'm wrong and we come out and surprise vs the dogs. Think we'll get run off our feet.
Its the elephant in the roomWas wondering what people’s thoughts about JZ our? I thought he started well last week, but after the 5 minute mark, had zero influence on the game! The next week he was very ordinary! As a leader, he doesn’t do it for me! Struggle to keep his spot imo!
