Was never happy with the club letting Rohan go and will be even more unhappy if he scores a few goals today.
On the other hand, just hope to see the young guys continue building a platform. Today’s loss will become manure for tomorrow’s premiership.

Nice OP from Swans Proudly.

As opposed to some other folk, I do not wish any more success for Grohan than for any other Opposition player. In a long career with us he was a bust. Since leaving he has performed at levels he did not before but is still a bottom 22 player.

I have found his whining comments about the trade to be really irritating. His comments suggest he rates himself a long way ahead of what he has delivered. I do not mind if there is truth to the rumour we are subsidising his salary at the Litter Box. Better to cut the losses and get such people out.

It will be a tough debut for Menzell against his old crew and at the Litter Box. It will be interesting to see how the crowd respond to him, particularly if he gets on top. He is a clever forward who uses his marking skills. It has been wet, miserable, cold and windy in Victoria. This morning it is cold and windy but at least it is dry.

I admit to a little worry our fwd line is a little tall. Reid and Menzell are marking players, but Buddwa, McCartin and Blakey are proficient on the ground. As ever delivery to the forward line will be critical. Stevie J has the fwd line operating with efficiency given the little I50 they receive.

I think we match up well against the Cats and I will be gutted if we lose this.

We are a solid chance. Went down to Geelong for years and sat in the cold and wet while we got blown away in the first, fought back in the middle and Geelong would win by 3-5 goals in the end. Since I've stopped going, don't think we have lost down there. That's why my arse is firmly planted on the couch in Melbourne's south-east. If we win, I'm claiming part of the win.

I have found this bit to be irritating and friggin’ disrespectful. He had cause, there was nothing toxic and our club handled it poorly!

Rohan was treated harshly by the Swans. He never quite made himself indispensable, but he was a useful, occasionally explosive player and a nice guy. It seemed kinda cold to dump him so unceremoniously. I’m glad he’s doing well at Geelong.

Rohan is best when he has a fast midfield moving the ball to him. He rarely got that at the Swans.
