    The dogs are playing really fast football, and we don't play or defend this style very well...

    We have some significant outs today so it's going to be a hard task...

    UGH- just saw a bulldog player hanging onto Buddy's shirt, a free to any other club, any day of the week- I wish they'd umpire Buddy fairly

    Shocking lack of pressure. How is Johannisen allowed to be floating around getting the ball at will???

    It feels like of those awful Swans games where we fumble, don't work hard and look slow.

    Not a good start.

    Our defenders needs to really tighten up and play closer. Where is our midfield though - feels like only Papley appears to be able to win a clearance.

    Wake up Swannies!!!

    I think the game is more the Dogs playing well thus far, and with a game plan that we do struggle against. We need our mids to win lots of first ball so that the Dogs get less chance to control the play. And maybe the Swans could try slowing the game down a bit themselves, and chip the ball short, rather than play on, kick long and risk turnovers.

    On the scoreboard we're still very much in the game so no damage yet.

    Some interesting quarter time stats: Florent 1 kick, Towers 1 kick and 1 hit out, Hayward 1 free against and no possessions, Allir 1 handball.

    Is it just my red and white eyes?? Or is the umpiring getting a little Melburnian?

    But- we're being outplayed too..

    Bulldogs are getting plenty of help by their teammates in the red jerseys...

    Any chance hannaberry can make an effective disposal.. just 1 would be a nice start.
