Pre game perturbations: AFL 2021 Rd 12: Carlton vs West Coast

No idea where this one will be played, but as long as it isn't Perth I'll be happy.
Live Long and Prosper!

Game is officially at the SCG now. We are staying in Sydney for a week.

Looks like Tim Kelly and Oscar Allen will be out injured…..

Doubt as to whether that will make a difference. Not the way we are playing.

Pick the right team - playing Levi, TDK and Pitto - is beyond dumb.

Not to mention Levi's knee isn't going to fix with 1 game's rest. Not the big guy's fault!

But Weagles without Guv snr., Shuey, Tim Kelly and Allen.

Kelly has been their best this year.

Very winnable if we could be smart at the selection table for once....
Finals, then 4 in a row!

I thought playing Levi worked OK, it allowed Jones and Weitering to concentrate on their task.

Levi wasn't bad, without having a lot of influence, we can see he is struggling physically.

De Koning should play every week.

I thought playing Gibbons burnt us a bit, he's out of form and it continued today, they have to snap him out of picking up the ball and allowing himself to be tackled, it kills momentum and delivers nothing to the team. Surrendering with the football is not a valid AFL level tactic, it's the same thing Dow does and its horrible habit to get into.

Cripps had a good game, but his mistakes are incredibly costly, too many unhindered disposals fail to find a or hit a target.

Not sure about our midfield tactic of handballing into free space ahead of team-mates, works OK when you have break-away pace, but in front of Ed, Cripps, Walsh at a stoppage is a losing tactic.

We need to find a way to have a big win, hanging by your fingernails every week is demoralising and exhausting, no wonder we tire, no wonder we fade. We have the talent, we need it to get vicious, unrelenting and arrogant!

They're above us on the ladder right? I'd just about put my house on a WC up to 24 pt margin.

What is wrong with Saad, didn't look interested in chasing today, looked tired, looked slow, rest next week?

His Carlton induction program is complete.

They are a strong team competing to make the finals and while they are well below full strength they will have more then enough to get past a bottom like like us.
Eagles comfortably. Natanui Gaff Yeo will have a field day against our midfield.

Walsh will need a big game as Cripps will have it hard vs Yeo......sneaky types like Gaff and Sheed need tagging, they get a lot of easy ball and are dangerous with their ball use.
I think its a game we can win given the Eagles are away from home and have plenty of talent out, Harry should have a big day given WC dont have a real tall defender, its more about whats going on at the other end with Kennedy, Darling, Ryan and crew.
Stop the supply and we win IMHO....

Reckon we're a show against them at the SCG (I knew we would NOT be today) as we have the pace.

But it will have all been too late.
