More than Fyfe, a midfield missing SHill, Sandi and Blakely. Also Being a man down in q2. That was a gutsy effort, missing so much of our midfield and a KPD against their forward line (one of the best tall set ups in the league), there is no way that we should have come close and yet we did. Well done boysHaven't watched the game from Sat. (was out for my birthday). Just hoped for a loss of less than 60 points. Was pleasantly surprised that a Fyfeless Freo that had an off night in front of goals nearly pipped the premiers on their own turf in front of their booing fans.
Big thumbs up from me mateI'm another who can see some positives and think another 3-4 weeks of gelling, along with getting Blakeley and Fyfe back, should bring a good second half of the season. Backline is pretty much set, midfield will be strengthened and forwards will be starting to play for each other - already starting to see the signs.

Despite being completely mediocre in general, they have still managed their customary battering of Adelaide (which is almost as much of a bogey as us). That plus that demolition of GWS has maintained a respectful amount of fear.They are the ultimate bogey side but the GWS and Pies away wins give me the smallest, faintest glimmer of hope. If we're ever going to beat them outside of Perth again then this is the year.
No doubt, that's why it's just a glimmer. Playing any other mid-range team in similar circumstances and i'd say it would be at least 50/50. God I ******* hope we beat them and i'm sure to the players it would be as big as any win this year. Forgot 2012, if we were to win that we'd be lookng at more of a 2006-type trajectory (yes im getting ahead of myself)Despite being completely mediocre in general, they have still managed their customary battering of Adelaide (which is almost as much of a bogey as us).
