Also, just because very few have commented on it - Touk has been superb the last 2 weeks
Handballs are just bullets
Short kicks are precision

Last 2 weeks has had 80 - 90% disposal efficiency despite majority of his possessions being contested.
He our Liam Shiels, Ben Cunnington - be your 3rd / 4th best midfielder in a top team but just gives 100%, doesn't make mistakes, reliable.

The commentators didn't said anything thing , only you shit yourself about 50m .
You think I give a shit about what the commentators say?
Thats Ryan running back off the mark and one of our guys charging right past him - that has been paid 50m a number of times of the past 2 years.

Don't get me wrong we were the best team and deserved to win the match.
There were plenty of frees that were missed for us - Jack Martin and Alex Sexton tackled in the right flank / pocket within goal range spring to mind.
I'm just saying that in real time and on this replay I grimaced and thought the umpire could have called that 50m.

Congratulations Suns! I thought you guys were very good against us last week. Thought there was disrespect about how we 'only beat the Suns'. Was a very tight game, and we weren't that bad. Good luck in coming weeks. You guys going well.

I reckon they’ve really relaxed that rule this year to how it should be interpreted. If the player in question isn’t impeding the player with the ball it should be let go.

Phew!! I haven't posted for a long time. Secretly waiting and watching until we showed some balls. I reckon we did last night.

The last 5 minutes of the game we completely smashed them. Every time I thought Freo was going to get the ball and run it up to their forward line, one of our players seemed to just fly out of nowhere kamikaze style at the ball and get a possession. And Harbow was just immense. There were about 8 frees that could have gone Freos way in the last few minutes. Probably could have gone the other way but I think we still deserved to win.

Jack Martin showed heaps of passion and fight last night more then he’s showed in the past.

I thought he had checked out and would walk out the door at the end of the year it wasn’t looking good.

But after last night I’m starting to think he might of changed his mind

I was joking with my mate it may be a job interview for Martin against Freo. But he played out of his skin and played really well.

I got this from Jack via one of the Club Insiders last year just before trade period and I have to say when he was signing it both he and the Club guy seemed really happy
I think he's very shy by nature and we shouldn't read too much into body language
He was so good yesterday.Has the best hands in the Club at ground level

Not when we start winning consistently.
When that happens you'll need a membership just to get in the place.
10,000 Suns fans yesterday and we all loved what we saw.
Last year we had a couple of early wins based on frenzy pressure
Yesterday and last week was a more controlled sustainable pressure game plan which is why I'm way more positive

Just thought I'd hop over and congratulate you guys for outplaying us yesterday. You were the better side all day and deserved that win. Martin and Sexton were great, hope we can brush it off this week, but good luck for the rest of the season boys!!
I kind of wish it wasn't you guys we knocked off.There's at least 14 other Clubs I'd way prefer to beat than Freo.Good luck this year.

Plus not having a team that will just roll over when the chips are down helps

too good this time.
I especially appreciate Lachie Weller playing well.
All the best for the rest of the season, except against us, of course
