They have a finals chance to play for, we have nothing to play for. They were excellent last game against Sydney, we were flat, listless and unmotivated.
Only one way this will go.
After the game against Perth only Ziggy came over to the crowd so an improvement but all of them should come over and say thanks in my view. No fans, no club....I find it telling that only a small number of players made their way around post game tonight. Says a lot about attitude and mood.
My "highlight" was Melling having a strop when he was dragged.
At lease we didint lose 12 on the spin
Hopefully that is the last we see of Melling.
No matter how keen, committed or tough he is, he is simply no where near good enough.
Too many players who are unable to pass a football, too many players unable to control or keep a football.
Nowhere near professional standard at any level.
Is no one keeping stats on individuals?
Someone in the Club needs to watch the movie "Moneyball" and then recruit.
When Nizzy replaced Melling, Stensness switched to the left where Melling had been ineffectual. This closed down Millar and Bernie pretty well.As ordinary as we undoubtedly were, playing 4-2-2-2 is not helping one iota. It keeps us too narrow and allows our opponents to play down the flanks at will. Our players are neither mobile or technical enough to execute that formation and if the Jest hadn’t still had the Sydney game still in their legs, they would likely have put us to the sword.
Goodness only knows how we will fare against WSW on Monday off a three day turnaround.
Those names are pretty spot on to who I was thinking.Jeez Ancient. On that who do we keep.
The Jock (his passing was criminal but his tackling/defending was sensational)
Kuol (as a squaddie)?
and a decent cameo by Diaz.
