    What do we want to see on Saturday?

    We have had two heavy defeats in a row and been absolutely terrible.

    What do you want to see from our club on Saturday?

    I want to see passion playing for the jumper going in hard rattling our local rivals working hard throughout the whole ground defence, midfield, ruck and forward. I'm hoping to see a lot of inside 50s this time hitting up targets and not allowing it to get so congested like yesterday.

    I want to see intensity, decent execution of basic skills, tackling, intensity, hard running (both ways), pride, passion, intensity....

    Did I mention "intensity"?

    Oh, and world peace, though I fear that one might be a bit of a stretch.

    I want to see the guys come out snarling, and then finish the game smiling & enjoying their footy.
    The line it is drawn, the curse it is cast,
    The slow one now will later be fast,
    As the present now will later be past,
    Your old road is rapidly fadin',
    And the first one now will later be last,
    For the times they are a-changin'.

    It's quite likely that North will get fired up and come out to bash us, and we'll just wilt again.

    Expecting a loss, so I'd just like to see us score at least a goal in each quarter, unlike last week.

    Hoping they play better as underdogs with a hunter not hunted approach
    If you kicked five goals and Tom Boyd kicked five goals, Tom Boyd kicked more goals than you.

    Improved scoring, 4 goals a quarter would be a nice change
    Great. I need one more thing. Soda. Yeah, I don't want my guys paying for soda. I want you to stock my machine for three years. I'm serious.

    A win.

    Some strings of goals that feel easy, not painfully stitched together.

    The Bont to be best on ground.

    Actually, if the Bont is best on ground, we're a long way towards the other two. His struggles feel like they mirror the team's.

    A team stung by the criticism and question marks over whether 2016 was a fluke.

    The 4 points and to not get as easily torched out the back by better structured opposition teams - even Brisbane did this against us for a half.

    Better ball movement and higher scoring would be nice as well.

    Not so much on Saturday itself, but I the lead up I'd love for someone in three media to call The Bont out and have him respond.

    One of the great moments in life is the sense of space and time you feel between taking a hanger and touching back down.

    Going back to the basics - see ball, get ball, kick ball (to one of our players); playing forwards in the forward line; hunt in packs.
