    WHAT I HOPE:

    OUT : Goodes , Armstrong

    IN : Everitt, Towers( as sub)

    WHAT I THINK :

    OUT: Goodes

    IN : Everitt

    No other change, with Lamb to sub AGAIN.

    Our injury list is long, but we are not the only ones. Freo is probably worse off than us, but have done very well nonetheless. The Pies have had some big name injuries as have Geelong. The WCE have had a revolving door with injuries and now look set to lose Hurn for 8 weeks and Scott Selwood also may miss our match with them as well.

    Despite our injuries our Defence is still solid, our midfield hasn't been seriously hit by injury and we are lucky to be able to bring in a Kurt Tippett to boost our forward line. We still look more than capable enough to knock off Carlton. Then we have a couple of easy games and hopefully get back of few of the injured.

    In a good way, of course. It's unbeleiveable when you look at the team that way.

    I think it's a bit early to give Xavier all that responsibility.
    I'd like to see Membrey in for Goodes and Harry for Tony A. Lamb to play a full match and Dre as sub if fit, if not then let's blood Towers.
    He reminds him of the guys, close-set, slow, and never rattled, who were play-makers on the team. (John Updike, seeing Bird in a crystal ball)

    I like Pyke.

    He is a poor option off half back. His kicks are short and often to the wrong part of the ground. When he has the ball in his hands we give the opposition a chance.

    it is interesting to me that Armstrong is the player singled out, he is not a regular, the conditions were not ideal for him, the team was hopeless all round and if Grundy was dropped every time he gave the ball direct to the opposiiton (in dry weather) he'd never play again.

    I knew him as a gentle young man, I cannot say for sure the reasons for his decline
    We watched him fade before our very eyes, and years before his time

    It just shows that we do have a lot of depth. We can have all these players out and we are still heavy favourites to beat Carlton.

    Well I am not confident about any game after our game and the Geelong game at the weekend.

    ?? Grundy beats his man week in, week out, is one of the best defenders going around and always gets a lot of the ball. I don't think he turns the ball over very much at all.

    I think Armstrong has let us down too many times, his decision making is poor and he is a bit on the slow side for a small guy. I surprised that no one has mentioned Brandon Jack. I thought he played all right against Adelaide for the one quarter he was on. His pace would be handy against guys like Betts and Garlett.
