We are slow, weak, dumb and unaccountable. Where is the growth, desire, structure.

It is an indictment that our best forward is a 19yo rookie and best field kick is the same

Oh and 2MP can fu** off

It seems we have tried to open the game up and play more attacking and this happens. Say what you want about playing boring contested footy but at least we were in games longer.

Well it underscores the need for the PP if our near full strength midfield is being demolished by a team that is apparently decimated by injury
Sidebottom, Pendles and Treloar by themselves are better then 2-3 of our mids together. They are just to young

They have their full strength mid contingent in too. Arguably one of the best in the comp. Our best in just makes us competitive.

We really struggle when Witts is beaten. We rely on him so much to feed us. When he's beaten our mids really struggle.

Unfortunately their injuries aren’t their good mids. Treloar Adams Sidebottom Pendlebury Phillips having a field day sharking Witts’ tap outs.

If you want concessions you can't look competitive.

Well yes of course
When I was reading all the headlines about their "decimated" team I foolishly thought most of those guys were out
Didn't even read the team lists

Well the Melbourne Media would have you believe they are a zombie team.
Apparently Darcy Moore makes all the difference

I’m not sure our players know what brand of football they’re supposed to be playing at the moment. They look hellishly confused and many even disillusioned.

They have the best midfield in the league and the best ruck in the league. We were always gonna lose this battle

Martin was in the best position then, not only doesn’t he use his body, he gives away a free in the process!

2MP should give his pay packet to charity today
No doubt he'd be 50 goals a year with a half decent midfield but he just doesn't seem to be able to work out a way to get into the game
3 disposals FFS

Dawson didn't look too bad today I thought. Struggles a bit when the pressure is on though.

Day presented all match. Found his niche there I think.

Ballard outstanding.

King outstanding.

Sexton the opportunist.

Struggling to find anyone else worth mentioning. Midfield as a collective felt way down. Barely noticed Swallow, Fiorini, Darce. Definitely didn't notice much of Bowes of Ainsworth today, though I think they were mostly stank on flanks.
