Well the winning streak was good when it lasted.

Praying for Freo to beat the magpies at home next Round. I can't complain being 8-2 after 10 games in.

I expect Melbourne to belt us at the MCG and Brisbane's current form to beat us in Perth. That makes it 8-4.

Hoping Freo beat Hawks in Perth to make it 9-4 heading into round 14 bye.

Then comes rounds 15-23, those last 9 games of the season.

I might have jinxed Freo. But one game at a time.......

The Suns are also a good side on the rise, no shame in losing to them.

Freo will be fine, in fact it could be argued that this was the loss they needed to get them refocussed and ruthless for the rest of the season.

I wouldn't be concerned at all if I was a Freo supporter, Longmuir will use the loss to his advantage (i.e. reality check etc).

Tough conditions but 6th worse offensive side in the comp by points for...defense is great but you need to kick goals.

They've rarely been a big momentum team over the journey (i.e. strings of consecutive wins) but they can still be dangerous come September.

I'm certainly not underestimating them next week. They had a heavy game today and one less days break than us but there are no certainties in footy.

If you look at the Freo rebuild like a cake then it has got a fair bit right.


Coach: Young and (seemingly) astute.
Backline. Young and very good.
Midfield. Young and very good.
Small Forwards. Young and very good.
Key Forwards. Need consistency.

Don’t know how he’s done it but that club has been transformed massively.

Lucky they refused to accommodate Lobbe in his desire to leave too.

Good coaching. Good management behind the scenes.

Peter Bell has done some great work as well.

Docker fans can dream a little dream in 2022

We were hampered by the worst s and c team. We were half out injured for 5 years, we lost 2 of our top draft picks plus hill and snotty Neale which kept the team from firing at the time but we were rewarded well..

Bell has been good. Jl is proving himself.

Brayshaw is better than Neale

Unpopular opinion of course
