Dwayne Russell is such a dramatic flog. Port got a scare today. They got within 23 ******* points after we demolished them in the first quarter, then won by 46. Shut the fu** Up.

Freo obviously arnen't the team that just packs up.

Finished off ok but you gotta ask questions when even average sides can shut us down, go man on man & dictate play for long stretches.

Another 4 points which is all we needed to get. Every win is a good win in this stretch.

Now a rest before an 8 point game with a spot in the top 4 up for grabs. Cant wait.

Random thought, anyone else concerned by Charlies post match interview?

Might need to have a re watch but he said we had to play a style that wasnt working? Almost felt like he was questioning the strategy followed once ahead? I could be wrong here.

He said that we changed our style which was odd given it seemed to be working?

I think it was more just to honest - of course a club will take the chance to try different styles when that far ahead - it’s where ga me style can develop.

didn’t work, changed back, all good.

Bank the 4 points, have a break and reset for the 2nd half - for all of the over the top bitching and moaning that goes on around here we're in a reasonable position but big improvements are obviously needed.
Some of those improvements might be easy to achieve. The second Butters, Duurs and Slyce are back we are significantly better.

Few blokes playing injured too that should come right in a fortnight.

Drew’s supposed to be applying defensive pressure in the stoppages. I didn’t see him do that today. He was torn apart by Fyfe/Mundy.
Yeah I agree, I don't think it's just on him though. Our setup is very aggressive which leaves us open if we don't get first hands on it. Also I rarely see us take that aggressive forward handball, tends to be sideways to behind to an overlap, maybe because we're lopsided in the setup forward of the ball.

I'd be concerned if he thought it was working.
