    Focusing on the positives, and there are some big ones:
    1. Aliir was sensational and proved those who say he can't play close, wrong,
    2. The 3 players to miss next week are the slowest in the team. The team will be significantly quicker next week regardless of who replaces them.
    3. McCartin is really settling in well.Going to be hard to leave him out when Reid returns.
    4. We won't so flat next week.

    Wow! Reckon there’s a spot on the coaching squad?
    Agent 99: "Did you see anything?"

    Nah! what's the point. Players n coaches know this already, it's up to the players to change game style. Swans still have a good team when all are fit n playing.

    I'm still not sold on Jones.

    I love his 'attempts' at line breaking and we are crying out for someone like that, however his disposal is very average and he just does too many stupid things. He almost just needs to stop trying to do everything on his own and play a part.

    Another player like him would help reduce his need to be the Messiah

    Wow
    For me hewett is a seriously emerging midfielder

    Anyway back to the critical areas:

    1. To many quality players injured

    2. A midfield rotation that can’t go with the faster midfield rotations of port, Geelong, Richmond etc

    3. We are not exiting the contests effectively partly due to our very predicable movement of the ball in attack

    This is a serious issue because it becomes AFL 101 - if u believe ur team mates can win the ball and keep possession then u have the absolute right to create serious space and spread hard

    Other teams can do that against us but with out our full team we are certainly struggling to push away from our matchups.

    Richmond and Geelong spread hard and got way in front of our matchups > causing massive headaches for our backline and we were out numbered
