Freo, much like Sydney are a well drilled side. Their structures will test us, throw in the weather conditions, supposedly windy and I think they’ll get the chocolates. If we win, it’ll likely be because Gawn/Oliver/Petracca/May or someone else of that calibre steps up.

In the 2nd quarter last week one of the first times we set our zone up going against the breeze Sydney kicked straight over the zone with the wind - we hadn't even factored it in to our zone. That's how dumb we are 90% of the time.

Freo by 15. Hogan to finally kick a goal from outside 50 using the breeze.

A side that does this incredibly well is Geelong. Kicking over the zone to a one out Tom Hawkins. I just can’t understand modern footy tactics; why create these zones when a good side will simply go straight over into a hole into the traditional FF space? It’s something we need to start doing given Weidemann is becoming really good as a one on one forward. Keep him back in the square and let these ‘intercepting’ and ‘zoning’ defenders push up the ground like a herd of sheep.

Going to be a good game. Melbourne looking to rebound.
Freo young guns have lost a handful of close games this year.
Good luck.

Still think you were robbed against the Blues. Either that or Newnes had a rabbits foot in one pocket and a four-leaf-clover in the other.

Are Fremantle well drilled?
The matches I have seen of theirs they have been well organised behind the ball and at stoppages. They have taken most games deep this year because they are difficult to score against. Longmuir has undertaken quite a bit of experimentation with the midfield predominantly made up of players in year 1 to 3 of their careers; Brayshaw, Cerra, Serong, Schultz, Young etc. Fyfe and Mundy have pretty limited time in the middle, spending more time forward, Hill and Conca play off half back. The fact they have done this and managed to not get ripped to shreds suggests that they are a team that sets up well.

Of course, the caveat is that they struggle to score.

My tips is Fremantle by two points. We'll smash the inside 50s in the last five minutes to no avail.
Such a negative supporter. No wonder the boys struggle in important game. It's takes a lot of determination and grit to pump the ball into our F50 relentlessly for doughnuts. Continuously being rejected but yet still coming back for more. A heart as big as Phar Lap this club.

I like the idea of those changes but not sure if they are the players that can lead us to a win.
Hoping Maxy or Preuss don't kick 1.4 or something.

I'd take Preuss kicking 1.4, he'll be lucky to get that many touches playing forward.
