Well at least we finished above the reigning premiers?
Midfield is about getting the ball. It doesn't matter at all what you're height is.The question about that for me is do we actually want to play him as a short nuggety midfielder when Serong is already there.
How short is too short in the middle?
Can you carry two sub-180cm midfielders for a significant proportion of the game?
I think maybe yes but then if you add in Schultz, Switta, Western and co you start creating a problem by reaching critical midget mass.
11th spot failed yearI'm a bit curious how you classify it as a failed year when you didn't expect to play finals, and yet we were playing for a finals spot in the final round?
That to me would indicate we are on the right path if you entered the year thinking we weren't good enough to play finals?
The actual place on the ladder isn't all that relevant to me, more the number of wins.11th spot failed year
11th place is not something we as fans should be proud or happy with.
If Hughes is delisted I’m writing an indignant letter. INDIGNANT I tell ya’s!Indeed. One can only assume that Bell must have decided to can Hughes as he is rookie listed and uncontracted I think. A real shame, as for all his faults Hughes always gives 110% and never shirks a tackle, way better list depth option than Tucker, Acres or Bewley.
I see your points. I have been a Freo supporter for a very long time so the bar or expectation is very low. Do I want them to win every week ? Of course. Do I expect them to win every week No i do not.The actual place on the ladder isn't all that relevant to me, more the number of wins.
Would you have been happier if we finished 9th on the ladder? Considering you didn't expect to play finals 9th is the highest possible finish otherwise - and we finished with the same amount of wins as 9th.
I don't think we should be proud or happy with 9th, but I'm also struggling to reconcile the logic of someone entering the season expecting we weren't good enough to play finals but also pronouncing that finishing equal 9th is a fail.
He’s not that bad. He needs a pre season that maximises his strength at getting the ball and making decision out of the stoppages. He’s in the same Fyfe file of doing too much and trying so much.I would like to apologise to everyone I argued with defending Lloyd Meek this year
I WAS WRONG
