When we force a turnover on defence we actually look really dangerous with our slick hands through the middle and most of our forwards being good one on one players. But like you said it doesnt happen to much because of our high fwd 50 differential. Also were prone to those turn over fast break goals because we have too many players who just constantly miss easy kicks.

Maybe we'd be better off playing a style more like GC did on the weekend, flooding the backline which means our undersized backline would cope better and we can can get them on the rebound with our run off half back and slick hands ball movement?
I'd like to think that even if we don't quite have the cattle or the experience yet we're developing a game style that will (a) be attractive to watch (b) win us lots of games during the season, and (c) stand up to the grind of the finals.

I think reverting to a defensive flood fails (a) and doesn't do much for (b). I don't know if we currently have a solution to (c) but a simple flood won't cut it in my opinion.

Some How English keeps his spot how long is his contract worth I do think he should be looked at and try and land another ruckman I know they take time but it is his third year and struggle to see him fit

Obvious troll is obvious. Go away.

Happy to go small. Young was unlucky but it seems to me we will run and carry and take them on. That’s the bulldog way. Especially on the MCG with all the space.

Regardless of whether we have a small or tall backline, Cox will chew us up if we don’t fill the holes and fail to prevent clean entries.

Looking for some goal scoring contribution from our mids.

For all the English doubters
This troll should put in perspective,just how he is valued outside of the club.
And thats why we play him .He is an asset.

What makes people think Greene can bring anything to the table? Has looked lost every time I have seen him play. Lipinksi not too dissimilar.
Lost? There was a game late last year where he had several shots at goal. That is more than Lloyd and Gowers currently give us, he is also that medium/tall forward that we haven’t currently got in our side. We had Crameri and Stringer in 2015. We’ve got two talls in Schache and Naughton, then smalls in Gowers, Lloyd, Dickson, McLean.
