    Re: WB Game Day V Carlton R13 2019

    I feel your pain and understand your frustrations. After our 2016 flag the past 3 years has seen a dramatic fall away in on field performances. Very few players have taken their game to the next...

  3. Re: Always Right Match Committee Thread Round 14, Vs Collingwood

    I like the idea of playing a tag on Treloar. Is there any reason why Macrae couldn’t be given that role given the good job on Cripps. I would also like to see Daniel moved into the midfield to...

    This is an excellent summary. We are still struggling to come to grips with the loss of so much experience. Apart from Geelong and Collingwood this is a very even competition. To defeat Carlton was a...
  6. Re: Our 2nd half of Season 2019 - what will happen?

    At the half way mark there is still little indication that we will lmprove in the second half of the season. I think we still need to develop a recognised goal to goal line structure and build our...

    Re: Jordan Roughead

    Both Roughy and Dahl have had the big advantage of walking into top teams which makes an enormous difference. We will always rate them highly as Premiership players
  8. Re: Always Right Match Committee Thread Round 13, Vs Carlton

    Makes sense as Cripps is their playmaker. Dunkley is our in form midfielder and appeals as the obvious one with good aerial skills to match Cripps in the air. The other challenge facing the Club is...

  17. Re: WB Game Day v North Melbourne R10 2019

    Good points quoted. The loss of Morris Picken Roughead Dahlhaus and Campbell has robbed the Club of a lot of experience. North with a big win again over Richmond tonight showed that they have a far...

  19. Re: It's been a tough season so far in 2019 but........

    We have struggled to play a settled defence for most of the season. Since losing the likes of Murphy MBoyd and Morris it has been somewhat of a merry go round. We played Wood and Cordy as key...
  20. Re: WB Game Day v North Melbourne R10 2019

    We badly lack key position players. Naughton will be a genuine key player but still lacks experience. At this stage of development he would be better suited as a defender. Cordy given his size is...
  21. Re: Bankers and Anchors Rnd 10, 2019 vs North Melbourne

    An excellent point. I would add also Picken and Morris to the list. It would appear that we sadly lack on field leadership.
    The four players referred to were inspirational. This is probably our...
  22. Re: Three things I have learned-round 10 v North Melbourne 2019

    English showed enough yesterday to suggest he may well end up as a key forward and used as a second string ruck man to a Lew Young. If Schache was to come good it would then allow Naughton to become...

    Richards was excellent last year in his debut season as a defender. Has never looked really comfortable further forward.

  27. Re: Always Right Match Committee Rnd 10, vs North Melbourne

    Agree with your thoughts. This was an ideal time to alternate Lew Young and English in the ruck and up forward, otherwise the selected team looks pretty good.
  28. Re: Always Right Match Committee Rnd 10, vs North Melbourne

    The team in the past 3 games has performed pretty well against good teams in Richmond Brisbane and Geelong whose extra class and experience proved to be the difference.

  30. Re: Always Right Match Committee Thread Round 9, Vs Geelong

    Williams deserved to be selected after being Footscray’s best player in their past two games. On the other hand Hayes has been ordinary.
  31. Re: Three things I have learned. Round 8-Western Bulldogs vs Brisbane Lions Mars Stadium

    Hunter Dunkley and Macrae are all fine accumulators of the ball but lack the necessary foot skills to make us a high scoring side. Together with Bontempelli and Libba we are building a formidable...
  32. Re: Always Right Match Committee Thread Round 9, Vs Geelong

    Williams was outstanding today against the Box Hill Hawks and should be selected.
    The return of English will allow Trengrove to play on Hawkins. I still believe that Schache is a better option than...

    You are very brave. Went to our game against PA with max temp of 5 degrees which was a shocker at 3.20pm on a Sunday.
    Three of us will go on Saturday at a far more reasonable time.
