You don’t trade someone just cause they’re slow hahaha. Cerra just needs to get bigger and move into the middle. Inside mids don’t need to be quick, just have good endurance.While I'm over the moon with the way we fought out that win I am a bit concerned with Alex Pearce's injury (at least he'll have two weeks to get over it) and very concerned with Cerra's complete lack of pace. He is very very slow.
NOTE TO ROSS : Get him a good athletics coach for the rest of the season. If he can't improve his pace then he should be traded on quickly.
im a fan of both Eddie and BucksHated Buckley when he was a player but now feel bad about it a way because watching him as a coach these days the bloke is pure class and intelligent, would love to see him coach a team all the way. Eddie is a bit of a knob but he also put his balls on the line in backing him and has been vindicated despite falling just a kick short of a cleverly coached Eagles by Simpson last year.
And some want Switta dropped...Mundys kicking efficiency today was 0. So was Cox & AP.

Still love him tho
What was good was the way the team took responsibility to try and block things up when Pearce went down. Good on ground management of the situation until a bit of restructuring occurred at 3q time...No.
We won despite Ross Lyons coaching.
(Note the sarcasm, it is not as black and white as one coach outcoaching the other)
Delicious salty tearsI re-watch the last 2 minutes he mentioned it right when walters kicked the goal still with 27 secs to go. It was disgusting no mention of how good a goal under pressure talking about an incident an hour ago. With 27 seconds to go.
He & dixon must have $ on the pies. In fact i think someone called out dixon on it in the 2nd quarter.
But to be fair he was playing his second only AFL game and I would guess, his first on the G. I reckon he will be a ripper in a year or so.Bewley’s two missed shots, too. He had the time to take one more step to balance himself better and could’ve kicked two.
Agree - I was reading some nonsense last night in the non Freo discussion thread about LDU being the superior player. I’ve seen nothing from him remotely like that. Was the game defining moment in many respects.brayshaws contest in the middle when he got crunched but bounced off it easy and got us forward, you love to see that from a young bloke
You don't want or need your ruckman running around expending energy collecting dinky possessions like some more clumsy representation of a midfielder. Save your energy for maximum influence on contested battles. I'd take the impact of beasts like Mumford and Sandi every day of the week.Sandilands was a beast around the ball though, it put the fear into opposing teams, and he did win ground balls a bit.
I have to say I really enjoyed Lobb's work. He must rate pretty low on the ruck ladder, but is always in the competition, and causes significant damage in other areas. I also liked having a midfield who weren't just feeding off a dominant ruck, but were still getting on top.You don't want or need your ruckman running around expending energy collecting dinky possessions like some more clumsy representation of a midfielder.
