Re next Friday night's game against Melbourne. Let's hope the wiz kids at the Stadium don't run footage of last year's preliminary while the players are doing pregame warm up as they did when we played Port. We don't need to give these guys any more ammunition and stir them up any more than they will be.Big two weeks coming up for us. Need to do a prelim job on Melbourne (might be tough at night) and we’ll jump 2 spots as Adelaide and Brissie are facing off. Assuming Adelaide win that one we then have them the week after with a chance to take their spot off them while GWS (assuming they take care of Carlton this week) play Melbourne at the G so a realistic chance they drop that as well. Two wins (at least one by a comfortable 30+) and we’re a sneaky shot at 3rd going into Bulldogs at home and Swans SCG (think we’ll drop this one).
A few games that worry me in the run home, along with the SCG game, are after the bye to Essendon on a Thursday (I’d say we’re more likely than not to be 0-2 from those two games) and Melbourne in humid conditions, although hopefully we’d be able to cope better than them, and the numerous night games we have. (Definitely think that was an intentional part of the fixture)
Swans SCG, Essendon on a Thursday night after the bye, Hawks at the G and Freo home derby all back to back is going to define our season. If we can go, at the absolute minimum 2-2 from those 4 plus win the next 3 upcoming games we’ll be in a good spot. 5-2 from the next 7 is doable..
I'm expecting a win but if they beat us like Port did I wont be completely surprised sadly.Reckon Melbourne will trouble us given how soft we’re playing. One thing they’re doing well is scrapping - its their forward entries that have sucked
????????My preseason tip was a Crows v Pies GF and that’s not looking far from the mark .
We tend to lose the away games v Adelaide if I make the trip over to see them . I’m not doing that this so hopefully that bodes well for Moz.
Anyway I am hoping for 5-0 but will happily take 4-1 over this stretch
(More like 3-0 /2-1 now)
Doggies have about 15 midfielders and 2 talls.I feel like this week is a huge danger game.
Dogs coming off a shock loss (in a way) to north and already getting a bit of stick in the Vic media.
They are a pretty speedy, tough side on their day and now have a couple of targets to aim at.
We really should win and Im sure Simmo will have the boys ready but Im looking forward to getting past this week.
I didnt think we'd beat Adelaide or Collingwood but thought we'd beat Port so happy we're a bit up on the ledger.
