Up until Richmond game was flakey and unmpressive. We've had one half of high intensity impressive football in about 8 weeks.


I would suggest that our poor conversion smothers the spirit and hurts morale.
If we converted better, we would have maybe beaten WCE, and could have gotten much closer in several games.

The guys appear a bit brittle sometimes, and missing goals must hurt.
Something isn't working, they can't regroup or lift when they need to.
The Tigers game was a perfect storm (somebody already used the phrase) where all the planets lined up.
We won't see another like that for a long time.

The Swans historically have played nasty,physical, brutal footy- and our lads haven't responded well to that stuff.
They're not soft at all- but they lose composure and can't think straight.

Good to see you back, WS. If they're going to the pictures, GT style, why not try Transformers? We need to change. On the bad omen side, currently showing are, It Comes at Night, Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Rough Night.
I started with nothing and I've got most of it left!

We haven't come close to beating in the last five years.
So that will be the first task.
However getting close don't mean diddly.
We need everyone to play well.
We need to kick well.
Even in games that we've been poor in this year we are still able to have between 15 to 25 shots at goal .so we need to take our chances.
Then we need them to have an off night.
So i reckon we've got sfa chance of all this happening and they'll have a comfortable 6+ goal win.
But i really hope I'm wrong.

Hope eternal. Does anyone think that some our supporters may be out of touch with reality?

You have to wonder when we will next beat the teams that we have been there bunnies eg Sydney, Adelaide, Port, WCE etc. Because it is getting very down heartening...
