How about the free-kick count? Umpires getting caught up in the moment. Also, Carlton’s fwd pressure - even with the likes of Durdin and Owies - how hard can it be to coach that kind of manic pressure on the opposition defence? We’re so far off producing that kind of performance it’s laughable …

i am not surprised by the Logan comments. He’ll be a good solid forward. However we have a ******* dominant bull and brilliant ball user. I’d take both if I could, unfortunately we lack ball users and Will is a fantastic ball user, he is phenomenal. Plus he is strong, centre of gravity is very low, massive asset. Swans would prefer having Phillips over McDonald. No doubt at all.

The kid has the goods.

The question begs, one midfielder will be traded. Who goes?

As much as it disappoints me, I believe Tommy will be traded. We will get great currency for him and our midfield will not be hurt too much for it.
Bit of gravy there, not saying Will won't be good, but it's a bit early, with very little to base it on to start betting your house on him.
I agree with the state of our forward line at times this year, Logan would have been handy and tonight he's had the opportunity to show how good he'll be, Will hasn't had that opportunity yet.

Free kick count having no bearing so far imo, it’s been a smashing.

The dissent 50 was a shocker though.

Why would we be trading a midfielder?

I don’t know how all our local supporters can tolerate sharing a city dominated by Carlton, *, Pies and Tigers fans without going postal.

Y’all are the model of honorable restraint. The *******tery on show in the stands in games like this one is off the charts.

Our players have learned the game plan. What they haven't learned is the ability to do it.
No no no, to many hyphens told me Neale what’s his name said it take 3 years to learn the game plan.

My point was, it’s takes time for the players to mature, not to learn the game plan.

It probably takes 3 years to weed out the s**t trucks who can’t follow a game plan and for those that can to mature.

Jack Silvagni must be one of the all time anonymous players. Cept for his surname.
