Banfield and Shultz first names off the list. Not AFL standard at all. WAFL at best and probably delist them both as their ******* useless.

Schultz was fine for me so he stays in. Duman will probably come out but that means an even s**tter player in Nyhuis coming in and you know you're f’ed when he's coming in.

Banfield is asked to play in that position which has cost many players their careers - defensive forward. No one is really suited to it because they are too defensively minded when they get the ball and look like a rabbit in the spotlight. Either play him in the midfield or at Peel.

Duman needs to bulk up and work on his decision making. The hell he going for a match winning spoil when his teammate had it.
Banfield is gone. No idea how to play AFL level.

In: McCarthy, Sturt
Out: Banfield, Duman

Time for another debutant. Finish the season off blooding youth

Banfield is thick as s**t. That goal he ducked up was mind boggling

Banfield out for ever. Nyhuis in for Duman

McCarthy in for Banfield.
Carter was poor but keep him in.
Sturt?

If Duman's not told to pack his bags and given 24 hours to clean out his locker, we'll know we're tanking.

Possibly the worst game of AFL by a Freo player in its history.

The fact Nyhuis isn’t getting a game behind Duman is pretty scathing. The coaches obviously backing Taylin. But I don’t see it. He’s tall, but not mobile enough. Plays on smalls, yet not quick enough. Nyhuis does that and more. He held two small forwards whilst allowing others like Wilson and Ryan to play off half back.

May as well roll the dice on the other debutants now. Wilson fit would be handy, but I think we're just going to have to cop going in slightly more jury-rigged down back.

If Banfield stays in the side, he needs to play predominantly midfield. Exactly the same with Blakely at the opposite end; we're screaming out for a midfield bull to help Fyfe, but Ross persists in keeping him down back to get perenially caught out one-on-one. There's no point in expecting either to work miracles in roles they're not suited to.

Didn't see the game but doesn't look like I'll be watching the replay?

Just objectively we did go in with our weakest side this year (even though it was the one that beat the Cats).

We may not know if finals are completely out of the question until after the game next week so we need to bring back some height and skill.

Forget the farewell game for Ballantyne.

In: Dixon, McCarthy, Nyhuis
Out: Duman, Schulz and Banfield
