That doesn't work against good sides though does it? You really think that we would have beaten a top 8 side with that performance/game plan?
Yes. Geez. We just has a game where our young guns looked like stars. Darcy, Cox, Cerra, Brayshaw, Serong were fantastic. A bit more polish closer to goal and its an outstanding effort. When you smash teams in both contested and uncontested possession you'll win way more than you loose so your 100% wrong there too. Game plan is working a treat for such a young team and is an improvement on last year. Cerra to a wing has been an inspired move by JLo. Walters back next week. Henry a chance to debut. Bring on Carlton.

Hawthorn might not be the Hawthorn of old, but they haven't been that for a few years now and we still looked completely hapless against them until tonight.

But tonight we absolutely dominated them and looked nothing like the team with those longstanding mental scars. And that's all with a ridiculous injury list and a bunch of kids playing. I'm really excited about our club for the first time in many years.
Totally agree with this. But, one of the signs of a good team is that they beat the teams they should. How many times have Freo laid an egg against a team they should have beat? We were in control the entire time against a team dropping off and looking old.

I really enjoyed watching this game from a footy standpoint. Just fun to watch. Our game plan looks solid and you can see the players are making better decisions as they become more comfortable with the structure. I think Dermotttt Bererererererrreton said at one point, "Freo are playing the game style of the Hawks about 6 years ago." Hell of a compliment coming from a former Hawk player. :)

I've never put anyone on ignore before, let alone a Freo supporter, but you're making it hard.

Any chance you can act like a normal person instead of a tryhard contrarian for once?
I have been. I'm not the one hurling out abuse for having critical opinions on the game. Yeah we won, woohoo. It's good to have a win. But like Longmuir would be saying the focus turns to next week and he knows that the performance would not beat a good side and we will have to improve against Carlton who have been better than the Hawks.

If we ever win a flag someone is going to have to put you up in their spare room when you lose your house betting against it.
I told you if I win 10 million in the lottery and Freo make the grand final this year, I will put the whole 10 million on Freos opponents! :)

He’s been serviceable. Watch him in terms of structure. He’s important. None of the older types have the killer instinct. Wish they’d back themselves
Isaac Smith can destroy teams. Bewley played an important role negating him until Smith was injured. Bewley did a similarly underrated job negating Phillips last week who has destroyed as in the past. It might not be the most glamorous of positions the defensive wingman but he's doing pretty well at it.

I hate them so much I felt like we'd lost the game when they kicked that last goal to avoid their lowest ever score under Clarkson.
The eagles of the east..
when I heard the commentators mention that stat that's all I was hoping for in the end...would of been some sort of poetic redemption for us ...of course bruest would then go onto slot one right on the bounndry.
Anyhow look forward to dishing out some consistent floggings to them in the coming years, hopefully culminating in Kennett giving Clarko the boot

You don't football if you think that when you absolutely smash a team in both contested and uncontested possession you'll win way more than you loose. Play like that against Carlton and dominate possession we win easily.

i lost my voice and it felt bloody good doin it. such a balanced performance, had the hawks frazzled with percieved pressure all over the ground our tackling seemed ferocious, so proud to see the boys finally following Lukey Ryans lead.

Yea we were a bit indecisive when we had a bit too much time going inside fifty and the goal kicking from the pockets was abhorrent but fu** me dead if that wasnt a sweet scalp to bag for symbolisms sake.

ive said it once in this thread, i'll say it again...

...CARN U BEAUTIFUL PURPLE BASTARDS!!!
