Vardy and someone to carry the ruck - I would prefer Giles stay in and drop Vardy, but we shall see

Coach Joe says that change was obvious...

LOL what did I say. Our game plan is fucked and we will get beaten at the MCG by teams like Hawthorn with good skills.

We are infatuated in playing the wings at the MCG just because it works on the wider Subiaco. Instead of going up the middle with quick ball movement by foot we are doing little chip kicks and handballs under pressure and turning it over. What a joke. We've got nothing but a bunch of guys that live playing uncontested football at Subiaco.

Gaffs attack on the ball was weak as fucking piss gets pushed off the ball by hodge.

Mastens just a useless [Greg Williams].

No real decent forward entries apart from bombing it to Kennedy.

Im just relying on the hawks intensity dying out but we wont be able to match it with the serious condenders with the b grade plodder midfield we have.

Shueys the only real damaging mid out there for us. Gaffs a seagul

We turn into shitscared mental midgets against the Hawks and it's really getting old. Thank goodness we regained some composure eventually, and Hawthorn had failed to punish us for our incompetence as badly as they could have.

It comes down to coaching and a willingness to take the game on

Lucky we are not further behind

If we play hawthorns game we will lose

Need quick ball movement and speed
The will to win...we have lost it.......maybe its coming back ??

Well that was an entirely predictable quarter.

This is really simple. If you take a mark in general play and go back and have a look, there will be nothing to kick to at the MCG. Play on, back your skills, take risks.

It all seems vaguely familiar. Really tentative with ball in hand, too slow, poor decisions and failure to execute -atrocious skills by hand and foot.
Fortunately the Hawks have not made the most of their inside 50s.
Can this team turn it around? Not confident.

I think it is very obvious, this team as is will not win a premiership. This is a very frustrating team to watch. The team can not run on at all costs because there is no speed. They have to play this way. Lucky to finish in the 8.
