    Did he elaborate on his lack of preparation? What's the reasoning?

    Re: Match Committee: Round 10 vs St Kilda

    I'm chill about our quality compared to the top sides, we all have our issues. Only thing is that we are a game or two off the mark and and hard winning premierships the way we did last year.

    I heard that as well and while he singled out Libba, by answering a specific question, I think it might also apply to a couple of others as well.

    Surprised by the lack of love for Roberts, I think we went in too short against Geelong and Harry Taylor made us pay. Roberts would have made a difference there, he's our best defender against the 195cm+ forwards
    If you kicked five goals and Tom Boyd kicked five goals, Tom Boyd kicked more goals than you.

    He's pretty poor as a 1 on 1 defender, especially against an opponent with some mobility... would have preferred Cordy in last night to play on Taylor.

    Feel we should always play 2 talls + Morris in defence... including Cordy as a tall.

    Which would suggest it's conditioning rather than injury and the demotion's a mild form of punishment?

    Not undeserved - he's fallen short of his own high standards - but inclined to wonder if both the result and Libba might have been better served by giving him a 'job' on one of either of two obvious Cats opponents in an effort to refocus him. The style of game we surely must have anticipated was tailor-made for what he (normally) brings.

    Re: Match Committee: Round 10 vs St Kilda

    What about Honeychurch? He's again been one of Footscray's most consistent this season. I don't seen any reason to put a line through him

    Seems to never be in the conversation but an honest trier.....you know you'd get the effort.....if not the polish.

    Just our luck.....St Kilda have been really poor today and will be given a big rev-up for our match.....just like Geelong.

    Let's see Tim English, as a flanker/utility who can pinch hit the ruck if needed. If he was viewed as a mid sized midfielder, not a ruckman, and he'd be very close to promotion and the discussion of mature rucks killing him isn't a factor. He does so much good work around the ground that the sooner he gets experience the better, if he gets some ruck minutes that'd a bonus. He makes good decisions, has very good skills and reads the play well. All things we need.
    Everything. Okay! I'll talk! In third grade, I cheated on my history exam. In fourth grade, I stole my uncle Max's toupee and I glued it on my face when I was Moses in my Hebrew School play. In fifth grade, I knocked my sister Edie down the stairs and I blamed it on the dog.

    When my mom sent me to the summer camp for fat kids and then they served lunch I got nuts and I pigged out and they kicked me out.

    But the worst thing I ever done -- I mixed a pot of fake puke at home and then I went to this movie theater, hid the puke in my jacket, climbed up to the balcony and then, t-t-then, I made a noise like this: hua-hua-hua-huaaaaaaa -- and then I dumped it over the side, all over the people in the audience. And then, this was horrible, all the people started getting sick and throwing up all over each other. I never felt so bad in my entire life.

    Where's our rev up. We should be breathing fire.

    English looked very good today in Footscray's loss to Geelong. Looks a future star with tremendous skills for his height.

    Re: Match Committee: Round 10 vs St Kilda

    I'd like to see Honeychurch and English rewarded this week, but I can't see it happening for both of them and given the high stakes of the game I think Honeychurch will be better positioned to have an influence. Libba didn't do enough and will benefit from some hard work over the bye period.

    I wonder if we'll see Moyd come back via the seniors or via the twos. My guess is the former.

    If Roughead is good to go, he should play.

    In - Roughead, Moyd and Honeychurch
    Out - Smith, Cloke and Webb

    Suckling, Hunter and Picken really need to put in a solid effort next weekend to retain spots.

    Smith just hasn't got enough tricks at present, a lot has to go right for him to influence the game which he has done by hitting the scoreboard. My issue with him is that apart from tackling, he just doesn't seem to do much else when things aren't going his way.

    I'm going with Red over Cloke, though it's toss of the coin stuff. I just think he's more likely to take advantage of having Boyd play more minutes with him.

    Webb unlucky, I don't think Stringer will come up.
    There must be better things to do, than sittin' around sniffin' glue, so follow me, just follow me...

    Re: Match Committee: Round 10 vs St Kilda

    Have we ever won a game when Matthew Boyd has missed it since Bevo arrived?

    I'm sure I heard it's something like 8 from 8 losses when Matthew Boyd misses a game
