Statistically speaking, this stat might be game high for our team, but like all stats, if high for the competition is 30, then 22 is reasonable for a young player. If 15 is high for the competition, then 22 becomes impressive.
The effect it has on team mates, is difficult to measure, but it would be appreciated and that's all that matters there.
The pessimist in me reminds me that our club is looking for as many small wins as it can get, so highlighting stuff like this for a youngster is important as a small win in case we dont get the big win, so the fact we won by a point is important to note in this regard.
People are posting like they are surprised at the outcome?
Not surprised. It was extremely predictable.
The new element tonight, for me at least, was the end of outrageous optimism.
The final recognition of the mental weakness.
I always *knew* that the boys had some level of desire, heart, mongrel, and it was just a matter of time until they would show the fire in the belly and our seemingly mediocre team would show us what they are *actually* made off.
Richmond win was yet another false dawn.
Can't lose to CheatsFC at this time in history. I now turn the corner from naively optimistic to absolutely pessimistic, which given our list is completely disgraceful.
