I was much more confident of rolling Port then I am of us beating the Lions at the GABBA.
I had a similar feeling heading into the Saints game, going in as slight under dogs but if we play at our best we should be able to get up.

Seen a lot of "we'll get a priority pick, so it doesn't matter anyway" talk coming from Blues fans now.
Pretty pathetic club that needs a priority pick after trading out its first (pick 1).

No wonder they are ****.
Stoker is pick 6. Poor bloke would only get a game at Carlton.
They are in a world of trouble.

I think this week will be quite telling in where we will finish. Beat an improving Brisbane at their home ground and we should be around the mark for top 4. Lose and we will be back with the pack around the 5-10 range.

The last 4 games have all been good wins but this week will be a bigger test so a good chance to see where we are at.
Who would have thought at this time last year that in 2019, round 9, we would be saying that to beat brissy at home would give us top 4 credibility... lol

I still think Brisbane are over rated, getting better, but still just a mid table team. Adelaide will win fairly comfortably. We do need to curtail Neale in middle though. May need nights to do hard tag on him. You know when we win Carlton flogs will say it’s only Brisbane lol been saying it the last four weeks and that they don’t care about pick numbers now. How convenient , from Carlton flogs

Lock down neale with CEY and we are half way there. Also think Thor head to head with robinson would be good. Lock down their quick forwards and it's ours. Brown on raynor would be interesting.

Not sure CEY would be quick enough to go with Neale ? That’s why I thought Riley knights as he is our usual midfield lock down player

Wouldn’t think so, the pick swap was a vote of confidence in the coach and his program. Stupid to think otherwise.
Or was it a last minute bit of desperation to add to their midfield knowing they would need more able bodies because over half their list is only VFL standard especially after missing out on Shiel.

Some of these Carlton flogs are deluded, still predicting 7-9 wins.

Round 8, 1 win. 14 rounds to go.

So they are forecasting around winning 50% of their remaining games, a team that won 2 last year and have 1 win in 8, good luck with that.
Well.. you never know....
They need some money ball recruits. Players that aren't flashy but can get the job done. Your CEY, lyons... instead of just going for expensive big names.

I can actually see 9 of their games being a decent contest with the lower average scoring rates this year.
But, 8 of those games are all in a row, separated by the BYE. They will need Kreuzer, Cripps, Walsh, McGov, McKay, Weitering, SPS to all stay fit during the 8 week period. With their injury woes, I don't know if that is possible. They have so few shouldering the load that every game is like finals for them. Sustaining any form is the issue, especially since their players are probably aware that they have no chance of making finals. The last 5 rounds could be ugly for them.

Over on Carlton way we're tipped to "again" lose to Richmond at home.

We've never lost to Richmond at Adelaide Oval.

We've lost one game against Richmond in South Australia in the last 20 years.
Nah, we did in 2014.

Martin got away with as blatant a shove in the back as you'll ever see to seal it.

That was the night the lights went out a footy park and Jarman kicked a goal lying on his back in the goal square
