Not sure what to think on Daniher, mercurial one minute.Mug lair the next.
Our first half wasn’t that badWe play like that against a better quality side and there is no way they would allow a second 1/2 comeback like yesterday. A 49 point win is great but really didn't excite me in thinking we will threaten in the final series should we put on another display similar top that one.
Not sure what the answer is but hope Fagan & Co find it real soon.
I wouldn't go that far. Missed a couple of sitters, wheels and sprays it without looking. He got plenty of it and pulls things off that not many can do. Rocks or diamondsHe was great yesterday. Only thing he is guilty of is trying too hard and being a bit skittish infront of goal.
Bailey burnt Charlie as well.Joe going for goal and not passing to Berry isn’t good enough. I hope that’s not one of those things that just gets left because he is a unique player. That could have been a crucial missed goal that makes the difference to our year if the Suns hadn’t stopped playing.
The list is not in as good a shape as some would have us believe no genuine midfield talent to come in. Lacking key forward development and key defense as well. We seem to have an abundance of half backs, (which is not surprising given we drafted that way three years in succession) none of which are banging the door down.I almost walked out at half time I was that angry. Credit to the boys tho, just steamrolled there way thru in the second half and become quite fun.
Still don't like our overall list make up and don't think we are anywhere near a premiership in the coming year, but yesterday was food for the soul really. Havent been happy the past few weeks but at least I wake up feeling good again.
The Dogs are next level tho and I reckon we would get spanked playing them at Etihad or the G.
Mitch was a bull and Lyons great after 2 Ashcrofy medals.. I liked HArris game too
At the game, really loved the effort of Starc on Rankine. just a great performance, and his stats are not great because he simply took Rankine out of the game. I did not mind him giving away that penalty either.Don't know what to make of that game. Suns were terrific first half and we were dire. Second half the Suns were atrocious they basically just stopped running. We lifted our efforts and got rewarded so thats pleasing. We are still long way from our best but here's hoping that second half gives the players a bit of belief back in their legs.
Great to see Big O fight back after a poor fortnight. Certainly helps when you are not getting double teamed. Also I think Fagan gave Fullarton more time in the ruck today than he would have with Daniher as the second ruck. Those extra mins rest may have helped Oscar.
Great to see Lyons win the medal twice in the same year to further embarrass the Suns. That said Linc was unlucky I thought he was brilliant. McCluggage after poor first half really lifted in the last half as did Zorks. Daniher could have easily kicked 5 goals but he still concerns me. Charlie improved but he is massive front runner. We need him to lift when things are tough.
Jack Payne was awful. He can't stay in the team. I saw a couple times where he just couldn't be bothered chasing. Some really tame efforts. I would give Ballenden a game next week if he is fit. Birchall was average as well. Also I'm not sold on Jarrod Berry either. Could hardly get into a gallop today. Imagine they will continue with him but he would need to improve 10 fold on what he has shown in his 2 games in the last month.
Credit to Mitch Robinson who ripped in from start to finish. He turns it over more than anyone but he work rate was outstanding.
