Thread: 2nd half of the season

  1. #1

    2nd half of the season

    Bye couldn't have come at a more opportune time.
    Good to have a week off after a game like today and the first 13 weeks of the season.
    4 teams now on 10-3, in the next 3 games we play two of them and the side that is 5th.
    At the very least if we win our last four games at home and beat Freo and St Kilda on the road we finish 16-6 which is definitely top 4 and possibly top 2.

    We have to be more than happy with what we have achieved in the first half of the season. A lot has gone right for us so far and to be 10-3 and equal leaders is a very decent launching pad for the rest of our season. Given how many younger players have played a big role so far has us in good stead going forward.

    Top 4 should be am absolute minimum from here, despite a fairly tough draw coming home. Top 2 a real chance if we do well over the next 3 tough games. Our injury toll is not too bad at the moment but tippett will be a big miss for us while he is out. But i have faith we can keep on keeping on and make the top 4 at least - and from there in an open season we would be as good a chance as any!

    Ditto, but after another slog in the rain I think they need a week off.

    Me too, but I'm betting the players are looking forward to it.

    Imagine if swans and gws finish 1,2. 4 finals in sydney and an all sydney grand final.

    In the same year eddie gets the sack and collingwood give up a top 5 pick to GWS.

    Oh the joy!

    Definitely. The weekend just seems empty.
    It's almost as bad as losing a Friday night game to the Dawks, Tiggers, Pies, Roos, Giants, Cats, Crows, Lions, Dockers, Aints, Weagles, Blues, Suns, Power, Bulldogs, Dees or Bombers

    Somewhat miraculously after playing the Swans GWS have come down with a number of injuries to key players including Mumford. Hmmm! Part of the AFL game plan?
    We have them where we want them, everything is going according to plan!

    WE're traditionally crap after the bye, so it'll be interesting to see what happens.
