Attack the ball hard, stick tackles and move the ball with some fluency. Do these things and we’re a chance.

Play a slow, defensive, bomb it long and hope style, and we will get beaten soundly.

Time to play to win rather than trying not to lose. I’d rather watch us go down by 6 goals having a crack than lose by 10 points playing like the Swans.

Jaeger can expect a tag from deBoar so others need to carry their share of the load. Need 3 or 4 of Cuz, Worps, Shiels, Hendo, Silk and Smith to get their hands on the ball and do some damage. A dominant game from Big Boy would be nice too.

Go Hawks.

I hope Clarko has the whole team in the room, showing them vision of Carltons deplorable, embarrassing, primary school effort last week.
And yesterday's awesome play.

Make no mistake, they could and should have won yesterday.

What changed in one week...??

Nothing much changed from a team or game plan perspective...

They just backed themselves and gave it a red hot go.

I don’t want to use the word expect, but I hope we respond this afternoon. Going to do everything in my power to show up this afternoon, so the rest of the boys should too.

I’d love to see the return of unsociable hawthorn.

Don't really care about the result. I just want to see them play a gameplan that is worth developing and worth getting excited for, as opposed to the slow, safe, conservative gameplan that might prevent a blowout, but sure as **** won't see them beating anyone of note.

Heading in today with no real expectations of a win. As above I really just want to see some good signs for the future. Some cohesive plays and Mitchell Lewis to kick 3+ goals would be encouraging.

We can win this game. We do have the talent. But it won't be by playing in the manner we've been playing in these past few weeks. Team need to back their own ability and the ability of their teammates. Play it safe and we won't get within 6 goals.

I’m hoping our supporters show up today despite the cold weather and poor time slot. If it’s over 20,000 that would be a decent outcome.
Should at least take the opportunity to go watch GWS. Only non-Melbourne team that I have money on to win the flag this year.😉
