    Bit unfair to Williams as he hasn't done much wrong. Perhaps he takes Sucklings spot.

    Re: Match Committee: Round 10 vs St Kilda

    Can we please call Suckling's name. Sure he can pin point a pass but he can also lose a contest when the ball needs to won. Can't tackle and his defensive game is non existent. His deficiencies out weigh what he does well. I'm surprised he escapes scrutiny.

    Re: Match Committee: Round 10 vs St Kilda

    Good to see no-one simply nominating all the young blokes here. Webb needs to get more of the ball but his kicking is elite.....one kick is worth about four of Clokes. Bailey Williams took the game on but needs to know when to be more conservative....he's a keeper. Bailey Dale was terrific and really looked like he belonged at the top level tonight.

    Next week IN (depending on their form with Footscray)
    Roughy
    Libba
    Boyd

    OUT
    Redpath
    Hunter
    Suckling
    I thought I was wrong once but I was mistaken.

    I thought Suckling actually tackled well today, but didn't get enough of it. Will see how tomorrow's game pans out before I pull the trigger on selection.

    Re: Match Committee: Round 10 vs St Kilda

    Outs: Webb, Dale, Redpath
    Ins: Roughead, Libba, McLean

    Not having Libba and McLean in tbe team was idiotic.

    I thought Cloke was waaaay better than Redpath.

    That would be close to my changes but switching Cloke with Redpath. Of course Biggs would have to put in a strong performance in the VFL having addressed his turnovers by foot.

    Also love to find a way of getting English in for his first game given his elite skills but not sure how for now.

    Re: Match Committee: Round 10 vs St Kilda

    We still have too many HBF in the team and we were also one KPF too many and one KPD light on. Need to get the balance of the team right.

    Frustrating night at the office. Needed to clamp down on Selwood, and Taylor 5 goals FFS - he is cooked as a footballer but we gave him a final send off at that shithole ground. Boy do we need the 4 points next week - stakes are very high.

    Not sure where the changes come.

    The low possession getters hit the scoreboard which we struggled to do, and the possession accumulators butcher it. Without someone demanding selection I'd go unchanged.

    Re: Match Committee: Round 10 vs St Kilda

    I am of the opinion that if you drop someone, they earn their spot back - like Stringer last year. I wouldn't be rushing Libba/Cordy back - Wallis covered him well.

    I think the Cloke/Redders doesn't work. Hunter is in trouble, Suckling as well.

    My call - we have partied a little too hard over the off season and too many have come back a little underdone - we are not far away, but just enough to be edged out.

    Re: Match Committee: Round 10 vs St Kilda

    Outs:
    Suckling: Has been mediocre at best this season, if he can't find space to use his left foot then he isn't worth playing. He's had over a month to try and do that with no results.
    Smith: I like him but he is an all or nothing player. I can see why we have carried him, we have few players capable of kicking 4 goals in a match, but with the return of Dickson and another slow player coming into the team (Roughead) I would drop him.
    One of Redpath or Cloke: Cloke did some stupid stuff, but worked really hard in the ruck and was reasonably involved. Redpath was very quiet. Coaches call but I want us to be as mobile as possible and with Roughy coming in we can't play all of Boyd, Redpath and Cloke.

    I thought Williams was good, Webb had his moments but needs to do more. Still should get another week, his ball use is valuable enough to keep him in for and with Suckling out in my scenario I want good users.

    In:
    Roughead: Boyds been good there but he needs help and showed signs this week up forward.
    McLean: A tidy half forward who is good for a goal a game and good around stoppages. I think he was dropped as a management thing more than a form thing. I'd expect him to play limited minutes in the VFL
    The rest pending performances in the VFL, including Libba.
    I should leave it alone but you're not right

    If Stringer is good to go, I'd bring him in for Smith.

    Re: Match Committee: Round 10 vs St Kilda

    I tend to agree that Cloke slightly edged Redpath last night but Redpath is a natural goal kicker.

    We're struggling to hit the scoreboard so I'm not sure Cloke's better work around the ground outweighs 2-3 goals from Redpath, even if he is anonymous for the rest of it.

    Re: Match Committee: Round 10 vs St Kilda

    Hard to know at the moment, but my changes pre- Footscray game is -

    In- Roughead, Cordy, McLean, Stringer

    Out - Redpath, Smith, Webb, Suckling

    I guess Libba, Boyd and Biggs will be in the mix too.

    Bevo sounded pretty disappointed in the presser so I think he will continue to ring the changes until we start performing to the level he expects.
