Our forward line was much better but gee whiz I agree, 26 goals is terrible and I am aware that we had a young backline, which I hope will learn loads from today.

It was probably more that our mids/forwards turned it over with mistakes ... and we push up pretty hard, so they got goals over the top. If we can get our handball chains/kicks to stick, our thin backline won't have to work so hard.

I think you've nailed it mate. We gave up so many goals through silly options in an attacking chain.

We eliminate those and we probably give up 5 less goals, maybe score 3 more.

Bell has got hopeless reflexes and footy mind. His skills cost us maybe 4 rebound goals.

Plenty of underdone players against a great midfield unit. WCE just know where eachother are and Priddis cannot be tackled.

Every time the camera goes to the coaches box and there is Matthew Francis sitting next to Leppa, I just ponder what happened at our club that this nuffy is now our coach's right hand man!

There is something called rebound protection which our defensive coaches clearly don't implement. No way a team should get that many goals uncontested. Cut them out plus compete a bit better in the air vs the opposition key forwards and we could be a good side.
