I hope that moron Horse has learnt that playing attacking and aggressive football is what needs to be done.

One goal in the first half showed that our old game plan is not how to play footy in 2019.

Heeney the highlight tonight.

Some late chances hurt us in the last. Buddy the first ever player to be called to play on taking a set shot. Zak Jones missed one.

Just needed our noses in front but spent the petrol tickets getting within 4 points.

If Horse doesn't get it now then he should just P1$$ OFF

I'm happy to do Autopsy threads again

Is there a different Jordan Dawson that this board has been demanding be selected for the past 12 months?
Leave Dawson in the team as he has scope for improvement and is an elite kick, something we generally suck at.

Generally speaking today it showed that Longmire's normal game plan is awful, but when the Swans are FORCED to play attacking football we look like a better team. Problem is that next week Longmire will be back to the game plan he used for the first 3 quarters.

lol if you expect to win a football game kicking 1 goal in a half.

That second half was just papering over the cracks.
Same old shit from last year
Nothing more true will be written in this thread than your post. Agree 100%. We've seen this movie before and it isn't going to be any better viewing second time around.

So hold up a sec.

The Swans played attacking footy in the first 10 minutes of the game but didn’t put it on the scoreboard. Dogs then got some momentum and we couldn’t get it back and went back to playing a defensive mindset.

So is the gameplan attacking footy given that the game started in that fashion?

Or do the players defy the coach at the start of the game and decide to play defensively 10 minutes in?

I am not defending how we played for the majority of the game, but I am also not actually convinced that is how they want the players to play given how we started the game...

The midfield is the biggest concern but there is still a little upside.

Blakey did okay.
Allir got better as the game went on.
Heeney won mark of the year.
Reid didn't get injured.
Cunners was dependable.

Lots of improvement left in lots of players ... maybe it's not a premiership year but let's give 'em a few rounds. We're renown slow starters.

I don't know, if Bud kicks that goal and we get in front, do we win the game???? We'll never know, but 3/4 for them to build a lead, 15 minutes for us to wind it in, we'll be ok once some of teh underdone players get match fitness and the new guys get in sync. Mills needs to stay at half back I think, Melican looked off

Ryan Clarke had an absolute mare. Hope he gets better quickly if they are going to pick him.
We deserved to lose, but it was good to see some fight in the second half.
Aliir is great to watch when he knows what position he's playing. McVeigh is a genuine legend of the club and still best 22, no question.
Sam Reid will be better for the run.
Florent mustn't have been properly fit - hardly spotted.
Reg Grundy kept trying and was amazing to see him rucking.
Callum Sinclair is the sort of player you want for your club, Keeps trying all day. Would be ideal as 2nd / 3rd forward if we ever get our 1st choice ruckmen back.

It’s the same issue as last year in that we can’t put a decent score on the board.

Our first half was poor, but there were two decisions which made no sense given our opponent and may well have cost us the game.

I couldn't figure out why Aliir didn't spend more time in defence, given the Dogs fielded a taller forward line tonight than they have against us in the past with both Schache and Naughton who were too quick for Grundy and Melican. Also, given the Dogs' strength is their midfield, why didn't Heeney start there?

I thought we were more attacking tonight which was what we were screaming for.

It's just that our players were shit house for the first three quarters, plenty of beaten one on one (I was tearing my hair out when Lloyd lost those one on ones), we couldn't buy a centre clearance.

Our Midfielders really need to start taking ownership with the 6-6-6 rule. Horse needs to start mills and/or Heeney there. We were absolutely smacked in clearances for three quarters

Perhaps you are right, but I think it is also reasonable to assume that at the first sign of problems Longmire went ulta defensive instead of backing the players.

Every other coach asks each player to beat their man.

Longmire wants 4 forwards or defenders to fly every time. 4 players must try to win the same ground ball. Players must be within 2m of each other around the ball and then hand ball and transfer pressure around until we drop it. Never ever try to kick in the front of our players. Kick the ball on their head.
Try to stay still around stoppages as it makes it easier for the 2m hand pass.

We are the antithesis of modern footy.
