    Nice having Bailey Williams back, I think we’ve really struggled down back without his agility, elite decision making and pinpoint kicking.

    So.....ummm.....yeh

    It’s funny, I sit back and read (almost) all posts on WOOF and think ‘why are our supporters so negative about team selections / match committee / Bevo et al.’ and yet I couldn’t see us winning in Adelaide. I’m a believer … I’m believing in our hype now !! Absolutely brilliant win. Inspired team selection. In Bevo we trust

    Based on this poll, at worst the feeling was it'd be a close loss and the majority who took the poll thought we'd win (not me I selected a close loss because I'm a pessimistic bastard).

    The team definitely gained some trust back (and then some) that was lost after the Richmond game.
    Our 1954 premiership players are our heroes, and it has to be said that Charlie was their hero.

    Absolutely a confidence building win that should fill them with belief they can match the best. The juries still out for me on whether we’re the “real deal”

    Pretty tough run for the next few matches - be happy to halve the ledger

    I'm so institutionalised that I know I should agree with you, but I can't help truly agree with AshMac.

    It was a great win no doubt and proved what we’re capable of doing. I agree we should be excited by this group, however I’d like us to finish off the Saints first. A side that we have struggled with and who knocked us out of the finals last year. Let’s put that demon away.

    That’s it. Everytime I get the vaguest glimpse of confidence in us I’m reminded of my place in the world as a dogs fan.

    If we tip over Melbourne I’ll be back where I was pre tigers game...

    I had us nowhere near it I'm embarrassed to say. I feel bad about not having confidence this week. I thought we'd been treading water for a while and, you know, Port have won their last 11 there.
    The win re-established a fair bit of trust. We couldn't have done anymore than what we did on Saturday night.

    Prediction 1Eyedog:

    We will smash Saints next Saturday to setup an exciting match v Dees

Dixon and Georgiadis took 8 between them, whilst we had Bruce only get 2 possessions, Naughton didn't play, and Wallis didn't have an impact. I think with Naughton, Bruce and English up forward, we pose a different threat this year.

    If we defend well enough as a team, including the mids, and bring an attitude that matches Port's ferocity, then I think we will have too much for them.
    Just backing over this post to note the big turnaround from last year.
    Contested marks last year 21-6 in Port's favour
    This year 14-10 in our favour - a great effort without English, who generally contributes a couple (15 in 6 games this year).
