    Hmm, I thought I'd be over last night this morning but I am still upset and fairly angry. We rolled over - at home, after leading well, and missing too many chances in the 2nd qtr.

    If you look at the season we are probably lucky to have even won a game. We ***could*** be 5 nil down. Not coming off the Long Run at Longmire yet but he may need to start thinking about the future.

    Bevan - sorry Bevo but you aren't reliable enough to be a regular player - he is not improving - 127 games might be enough time to give him a chance. I don't see much point in LRT coming back in either - he won't help us win too many more.

    Bird - I know plenty on here love him but he has no tricks - small, slow, average disposal and not really improving. Until someone smashes down the door in the reserves he will stay in but don't see him in the side in 2-3 years.

    White - well here is a problem that has no solution. We know what will happen - he will go back to the reserves and kick 10+ against crap opposition. Look at our percentage in the NEAFL - it is a joke - we have to suffer through this for a few years until this comp improves.

    Bradshaw - he is no solution to much but, bloody hell, it would be handy to get him back - at least we would be more competitive against goodish sides.

    I know I am not putting up alternatives because unfortunately, I never see our reserves play but I think we have a few on our list who have had enough time.

    Bird and Jetta we very poor last night, Bird seems to get caught 2 or 3 times each match and his disposal has been most ordinary, Jetta to me would benefit from getting some leather poisoning in the seconds.
    White, and this pains me to say, has to go, much rather see LewJon try than White fail

    OUT Bird, Jetta White
    IN Parker, L Johnson, Grundy

    I dont know who said it, but i thought Pyke was okay tonight, particularly considering the conditions. And, we saw what Mummy might be capable of going forward, so White can go, Pyke can stay, and lets see how our forward line works with those monsters rolling through there. Maybe a TDL and/or LJ in too for a Bevo and Bird.

    p.s. Mcveigh and Hanners needed to stand up last night, and they did, which is encouraging, yet we still lost. I dont think ive ever been more upset about a loss since 2006. ( LOUD SWEARING!!!!!! )

    I agree with this and would go so far as to try a new set up.I know he is a champion ruckman but we have Pyke and Seaby.Why not Mumford a KPP forward(Bye Bye White) and Pyke and seaby to carry the Rucks. That makes us very tall i know and I believe that is a good thing!

    Agreed! White to go and rotate Mummy and Pyke through FF. Grundy back in and Everitt out. Everitt? EVERITT?!? What other team has a non-impact player as a sub?!? Bevan out (because Moore is back in) and TDL or even Lamb in to replace him - for goodness sake, let's get a specialist forward up there! And it is time to give Jetts the role of sub - he doesnt see enough of the ball in a full match but his pace would rip them apart in the last quarter (if he could kick straight).

    Agree with this except I'd give Jetta another chance and bring Parker in for Moore as the Sub.

    Selection may depend upon how the Dogs line up, as with no Hall, there may not be enough tall match ups down back.

    Ins:

    TDL, Grundy, Parker

    Outs:

    Bevan, White, Everitt,

    Then start up forward:

    TDL Pyke McGlynn
    Bolton Reid McVeigh

    And down back:

    Kennelly Richards Mattner
    Smith Grundy Shaw

    Moore as sub.

    Ins: TDL, Grundy

    Outs: Everitt, Jetta

    Was thinking that with Baz not playing this week, Grundy might be given another week off, or would be brought in at the expense of White or Reid (in order to not have too tall a team). But Liam Jones and Jarrad Grant are good quality young players who Ted and Reg will match up on. So that sorts that out.

    Jetta needs a few games in the 2's in a row to dominate and rack up 30 plus possies. Boost his confidence. Really does look like he gets down on himself during games when he makes a mistake. Give him a few weeks in the 2's and given he plays well, he'll be ready to go a few weeks from now. I'm not prepared to give up on him (like some Swans fans I've spoken to have) based on his best football that I've seen. That was last year in the SF vs the Dogs where he was sensational. If he can reproduce that consistently, we have a player of definite substance.

    I'd love to see Lewis Johnston and Luke Parker get game time soon (it sounds like they are going very well in the 2's) but I don't think this will be the week, for Johnston at least. Parker I can see coming in in the next few weeks if he keeps playing well in the 2's.

    Don't understand what exactly Craig Bird did wrong. Thought he was more than serviceable. He is best 22 easily IMO.

    Bird is always going to struggle in my opinion in the big time as his disposal is iffy and he is slow. However, he is good at getting in and under- we should be looking to mould him into a new Kirky (i.e. the Man always at the bottom of the pack). I have no doubt he could play that role very well indeed.

    I can't believe some people would honestly be giving up on jetta- he has struggled this season, but he is clearly a confidence player,and he has the potential to be a sensational player. He does however need imo to go back to the 2nds for a few weeks to get his hand on the ball, kick some goals, run a bit and get that confidence back.

    I'd give Jetta a rest along with White, with Grundy and TDL to come in, and maybe Moore to the Sub role instead of Everitt with Everitt going out to be replaced by Parker maybe?
