    Port Adelaide: Level of Vengeance

    Anyone else think Port Adelaide are going to unleash this week...

    I have a REAL bad feeling - the only thing that makes me feel somewhat OK is hearing about the travel debacle they endured last week...but then again, they are young, fit, professional athletes and have a full week to recover.
    What should I tell her? She's going to ask.

    I'm more worried about what WE will serve up, as opposed to Port Adelaide.

    Agree with this.

    We comfortably handle Port Adelaide if we are on, but we haven't put it together this year when there is any pressure on.

    They will be keen to atone, but they were keen to atone for the 2020 disappointment last year and that didn’t help them…

    Two sides that could dish up absolutely anything.
    Woof.

    Well, this sucks. I had a scale of vengeance poll but it took me too long to type it and now I can't post it...

    Sorry team.

    1-10

    1 was "Everyone involved in the Veale deal (post deal)
    10 was "Tom Boyd in the 2016 GF (Folk Hero status).

    Billy Barret even got a run (he was "2") and the other part of that trade (Ian Stewart) was 7.

    I reckon they’re pissed, and no one takes the minutia of football more serious than Port Adelaide, but I don’t know if they’re good enough to do shit about it.

    We really need this one, hopefully we can just play to our best because on paper we really match up well against them.

    The first quarter will tell the tale. If we kick the first couple, the doubts will creep into their play.

    May actually be worth starting Libba & Dunks in the centre for the first bounce as our best contested beasts. Win the first clearance, anything to bring back the mental demons.

    We really need to make their backline accountable in the air too. Aliir can cut us up if Jonas continuously peels off and gets a block on Naughton's launch. This is a week where three marking options (at least) have to work hard in the F50.

    Agree with all of this. We’ve been able to negate Allir two of the last three times, once by design with Schache and once by Naughton completely kicking his arse. Seems like they will do anything to stop Jonas from actually playing on anyone so Allir, in that primary KPD role could again be exploited to our advantage if we can isolate him without help.

    We also have to establish ourselves in the middle so starting the bulls together is a good call too, and given speed on the ball won’t be a priority we should probably start with Bont as the third. Wines and Boak carved us to pieces in round 23 last year and SPP, in spite of himself, is in career best form. I think our guys are better but they don’t seem to have clicked all too often this year and I’m hesitant to be too confident in them to get on top.

    I remember earlier in the year some of our players were asked what their favourite grounds to play on were. A number of them chose Adelaide as their favourite. I am confident about this match especially if Tim is back.

    Hope Schache plays if for no other reason so we can burn another few hundred posts talking about whether he’s any good in the wet.
