Re: Scratch match review V Lions

Does anyone ever have an average game in these reviews? The ridiculous thing is that players reported to be having great games week in, week out, never get a look in at the selection table. I take everything coming out of the club with a very generous pinch of salt. Welcome to 1984. Newspeak? No su...

Re: Round 9... vs Brisbane

I saw Woosha saying jack about the umpiring at some presser. At least he could have said something about the calamatous holding the ball against McGrath, the deliberate that wasn’t and that extraordinary goal they got by allowing a lions player to receive a handball when standing between a lion on ...

Re: Round 9... vs Brisbane

Why is it every time they score a behind we wait around for them to setup and we kick to the boundary with 75 people there yet when they do it they get uncontested marks all the way to the wing? This is another constant in our system of play for YEARS. It is infuriatingly shite! Time and time again 🤬

Firstly although we were completely sh it dont underestimate the effect the affect continued absence from normal surroundings is having on some. That said the following players need to be dropped and not seen again for the foreseeable future Redman - his dreadful efforts personally cost us the firs...

Re: Round 9... vs Brisbane

While I lament the lack of real talent on the list, the WORST thing about this lot (and other plodders in the 2000’s) is their diabolical lack of effort, attitude, determination, concentration, desperation etc. All that important heart and brain stuff.

Re: Round 10...vs GWS Giants

I think Ham and Redman have something to offer. Redman was a gun last year...another player simply going backwards. Ham has some real dash but needs time. The rest can just GAGF I like the Red Dog. But he’s in ordinary form. Did a good thing last week, but has had his pants pulled down quite a few ...

Re: Looking for Positives Amongst the Train Wreck that is EFC

We are positively soft and feeble. Heartless. Attention spans of gnats. The template of how to win games with pressure, grit, determination, and desperation was the effort against Collingwood. They haven’t even got near it since. But that’s an all too familiar pattern for 16 years. 16 f****** years....

Votes v Lions

5. Andrew McGrath
4. Jordan Ridley
3. Dylan Shiel
2. Darcy Parish
1. Sam Draper

Only because I have to. TBH, other than McGrath, the others weren’t even in the best 20 on the ground.

I only mentioned Wines because of his so called ties to Xavier Campbell.

Not sure if he is even interested in leaving Port...would seem unlikely now given Ports immediate and short term prospects.
And our long term shitness...

People calling for Hibberd to be dropped were clearly not paying attention to the game.

If Langford is out the Hibberd is going nowhere.
OUT:
J. Laverde (inj)
K. Langford (sus)
S. McKernan (managed)
C. McKenna (managed)
M. Hibberd (omitted)

Re: Injuries season 2020

Scroll back every season, you will invariably find ‘indefinite’ against the names of Laverde and Ambrose.

Delist please.
