I didn't get much of a chance to watch the game but that was a serious concern for me. Not only did we stop their fire power we managed to score with a lack of good forwards. Thought weid showed some better signs tonight, still not a threat but did some good things and ended up drawing a free kick from a panicked swans defense. Gawn looked like he was back, particularly in the last quarter took some clinch marks. Good to see guys like Viney and Jones play a lot better.Well, we won, Gawn dominated from the second quarter onwards, Hore played alright, Frost somehow did a semi-reasonable job on Buddy again, Preuss fluked a couple of goals, and we recovered from a slow start and managed not to give the game away.
Not a great game to watch, though. Both sides seriously lack in skills and polish - fantastic proponents of the hack it forward and scrap for the loose ball approach. Was a bit worried there in the 4th quarter when the Swans used a bit of width and run from the back line to stream forward for an easy goal that they would realize they could run rings around us, but then they went back to throwing it on the boot to no one. Considering how boobishly our key backs played (OMac was diabolical in the first half, and I've been giving him a fair bit of rope in the first few rounds), can't believe Reid, Blakey and Franklin only kicked one between them. So even though we got a win up and few more things clicked, we're still playing some sh*te football, but I guess it's at least to be expected when there were so many inexperienced players on the park.
How the fu** you get $31 on CP5? was only paying $15 on bet easywell ****, that's a relief. The game was won from a pretty clinical 3rd quarter, easily the best we've looked all year- we really choked Sydneys ball movement. Some tin arse goals in the 2nd kept us in it.
Getting Trac @ $31 for 1st goal.
-Gawn slayed em in the ruck, shame it took the mids so long to take advantage
-Jonesy, that's my boy
- Hoare was awesome down back
- Hunt looked good up forward
- Loved Tracs game
- Salem gets better and better
- Thought Frost did a good job on Buddy
- Sydney being first to the ball all over the ground for the majority of the game.
- Omac was appaling
-Thought we went into our shells in the last quarter, a better side could have ran over the top of us.
Still plenty of room for improvement and a long way to go to get our season back on track but it's a step in the right direction.
