Doesn't feel right me posting before Gaso since he's omitted himself this week....but what does feel right is posting it at the right time and not before some random thing :)

So I am in before win and the team better heed Josh's warning.

He's not really serious though....he'll show you that 'it's happening' later with the full GIF :)

I still have a really bad feeling about this.
I feel better that Ainsworth isn't playing and that it's at TD and no Lynch.

I think we'll be fine. The Bulldogs game definitely dampened my confidence though.

We really need % though. And Brown needs to kick aplenty.

So I guess what you're saying is they suck, and we've got them licked.

Sounds about right.

North by a pleasurable margin.
Nah. I have similar thoughts.

I think we're close to cooked. Our more older/mature players have been carrying a big load... the youngins are close to cooked IMO.

We will win another 1 or 2 at least though IMO.

Yep, our depth was always paper thin, and clubs we have to meet in the home stretch that we would have penciled in as a win are now playing better footy.

- We'll struggle vs Sydney next week
- Collingwood will beat us
- West Coast in Hobart should be a win, while they have Kennedy & Darling missing.
- We won't beat Brisbane in Brisbane without our best 22
- The return bout v Bulldogs will be another hard test.
- The Crows will beat us in Adelaide.
- StKilda are playing competitive footy now, but we should win.

Same token, no guarantee the teams now playing better footy will keep it up until the end of the season. It's more back to how North plays - who comes back from injury (Jacobs), who gets back to earlier season form (Anderson and others), do we get more injuries, and can we get a forward setup that works.

Of course. Our fit best 22 potentially wins all of those games.

Should be a very easy win , GC don’t want to be in Melbourne in July ... Brown could conceivably kick 8-10 .

What I don't want to see at any time today: That showtime offensive crap where there is no defensive structure that suddenly emerged after half-time of the Brisbane Lions game when we were 50 points up. I'd rather Sam Wright & Co. stay where they're supposed to stay rather than be kicking goals off (& out of) their backside.

It’s time the younguns start to perform - for to long the senior players have carried this team.
Looking at Ahern, zurhaar, Simpkin , Clarke ect to have big games.
North to win by plenty.
