Thread: 1st QF Swans v Giants

  1. #1

    1st QF Swans v Giants

    Well it's fine but windy in Sydney today and the wind is tipped to be blowing all day - up to 40kph from the west. Rain looks unlikely though and it's not cold.
    Anyone else starting to get a bit of that finals nervous excitement?

    (I'd have made the Thread title longer but the engine kept telling me I had too many tags in it. NFI what that's all about.)
    Today's a draft of your epitaph

    About halfway to sydney with my carload of swannies.

    Getting very nervous as there is such a huge opportunity for a flag this year if we are good enough and want it enough. Need to start at a million miles an hour and force the giants to play the game on our terms.

    Come on you mighty swannies!!!

    Very nervous with seven first year players, that's a third of the side! Losing won't be a disaster but much better to have the feet up next week whilst a Prelim final opponent is getting battered.

    Got to get the game on our terms early and stop their prolific run. In some ways that 41pt loss earlier in the year gives us a good sighter into how they could beat us today and hopefully can execute the plans to win.

    Will be interesting to see the % of support for GWS, surely we would have 75-80% of the crowd?

    Extremely nervous I think GWS win by three or four goals unless we can stop their run out of stoppages and not kick the ball directly to Heath Shaw like last time.

    So have been on the bus from Miranda since 12.15 - we are stuck in the mother of all traffic jams in flemington!! A poor little kid next too me is busting for the loo and the bus is jam packed. I'll be glad when we finally get there. Don't think it will be better for later buses
