    1. 21 goals in a row last week. 12 goals in a row this week. Who wants to play us?
    2. Lippa is going to be a Macrae like gun.
    3. Lewis Young played one of the best games of any of our KPDs this year. He's playing next week match committee, got that?

    3A. These tall forward kids... Just lock in 4 or 5 goals a week. In two seasons, lock in 7-8.

    1. Footy is a funny old game...
    2. Lippa is one of the cleverest players I have seen.
    3. I love it when Heath Shaw plays against us.

    Macrae has had 30+ disposals 10 weeks in a row.
    Lewis Young can play, give him time and he could well be up there with Schache and Naughton.
    Bailey Smith - 9 tackles and won't take a backward step, sky is the limit.

    No other club has gun kids like us. Kudos to the recruiters
    We are getting that appetite for the contest back
    We have reopened up the handball club

    1. We're peaking at the right time. Destiny in our hands again.
    2. If we win next week, a fair chance we're back at GWS again in the 1st week of finals. That would be a great outcome.
    3. We're finally starting to put teams to the sword and break the back of opposition so as to not leave them with a sniff.

    1. GWS will be a different side if we play them first week of the finals with the players they had out today. Even so, this will give us a lot of confidence.
    2. Lots of media talk about our midfield being the best in the league at the moment - not sure i'd go that far, but god it is a beautiful machine to watch
    3. Naughtons ability to work himself into a game is outstanding. Davis is a quality player and clearly put a lot of work into him early, the head on his shoulders and his natural ability are a lethal combo
    The dam wall has busted!

    3 - How is Bailey Smith not getting more recognition for the Rising Star award? Sure Walsh has been great but does he have Smith's explosive ability? I think not. That long goal today underlines just how damaging Smith can be

    2 - I underrated the impact both Suckling and Duryea could provide our club this year

    1 - Trengove does get the recognition he deserves

    1. There is nothing more joyful to watch than blokes lining up to get in Heath Shaw's face.
    2. Our pressure is at September 2016 levels at the moment.
    3. We can beat any team in the 8 right now.

    1. We can be ruthless. Were not always yet, but we can be.
    2. Dickson and Suckling still have much to offer us. I always felt this, the last 2 weeks showed it.
    3. Beating those plastic pricks feels so good. Sooooo, sooooo good.

    1. The young guys have got a bit of agro in them - Naughton, Smith to name two

    2. We are becoming a ruthless team

    3. The other 7 teams in the 8 fear us.

    1. Beating Essendon, Geelong & GWS in one H&A season is pretty much footy porn for me
    2. Duryea & Crozier continue to provide way more value than they cost us
    3. Suckling almost cost me a $2k laptop with his defensive turnover in the first half.
    Our 1954 premiership players are our heroes, and it has to be said that Charlie was their hero.

    1. An angry Bont is a rare but awesome beast.
    2. Leigh Matthews has a pathological dislike of us. Scrap that, I already knew it. But he can barely contain his disdain for us and refuses t give any credit at all. Retire, you miserable old crim.
    3. Patrick Lipinski has benefited from his weeks in footy purgatory. His work in close is very good. Kudos to match committee. They got this very right.

    1. Having Duryea in defence feels like having the 2015-16 Matty Boyd back in the side. Is strong overhead, can tackle and uses the ball well. Have no idea why we traded for him but starting to learn quick.

    2. There is some hope for Easton Wood yet.. I reckon he flew for more marks today(rather than spoil) than he has since 2016. Actually that was his best game since 2016.

    3. Is it just me or has Bailey Dale improved his tackling significantly?
