    Re: Picking teams is really hard.

    If you look at the premiership team and take away the retirements, then we only lost 4 players, then Hamling is the one I would have loved to have kept as he would fit in with the current philosphy.

    I think the club has tried to address the speed issue to add to JJ, Richards with Smith, Vandermeer, Cavarra.

    Another speedy midfielder would be handy

    He is very slow I am afraid, but could have been a filler till we developed the right bloke.

    I am still hopeful Young can do the job.

    He played a lockdown role on Cameron and kept him goaless.

    This just tells me we need an agile, athletic 200cm full back, someone like Darcy at Collingwood. We have noi one to play against Dixon, Lynch, Hipwood types.

    Start recruiting boys.

    Re: Picking teams is really hard.

    I think you are right.

    Looking at Trengove the other night, he was very slow. We know he likes English because he gets around the ground and has a bit of pace for a big man.

    I have asked before, how many ruckmen do you need on a list? Currently we have three, with Sweet not yet tried, but in development.

    Probably a bit of both. I do think when Duryea came back from injury, we seem to be better organised.

    Cordy is not big enough to hold down a true KPP but was asked many times to play tall - just didn't work.

    They were all there is my opinion. It's not hard, don't pull on the jumper.

    Naughton was scragged every time the ball went into tyhe forward line, but no frees as there was a pack around him. ...

    Such a Champ, tried his guts out to get us over the line. 30 Disposals is pretty good and if he does have a niggle, 30 is remarkable.

    Yesterday, I saw Shuey pretend to stumble but actually tripped up the Carlton player - has this been assessed? It looked deliberate to me.

    I seem to recall he has done that before.

    Second half of last year we had the best defense in the AFL, ie conceded the least goals. I thought with Keath we could boost this, or at least be more consistent

    Maybe I used the wrong terminology. I should have said drop the intensity and effort in some of the quarters we leaked multiple goals.
