Re: Pre game postulations: AFL 2021 Rd 4: Carlton vs Gold Coast on the Gold Coast Reply #15 – April 06, 2021, 11:07:29 AM Quote from: Baggers on April 06, 2021, 10:41:26 AMExactly. And we have a history of doing just that. 1% less focus and commitment, and we'll be chasing clacker. Our focus should be to be more ferocious and for longer.We take GCS lightly at our peril. In fact, our coaching group should be impressing upon the playing group that we must improve more. Too often sides pick up from where they left off... and we dropped in critical areas in half the third qtr and too much of the final quarter against Freo.It's all about maturity.Are we mature enough to back up from the Freo game in terms of intensity and consistency of effort/output?Let's hope so. We're not a young team any more and we're out of excuses.It's a must win. Might get us into the 8?Certainly think a guy like Williams (presuming fit to play) has much upside.Ditto, the likes of young Parks and Cottrell (sp?). Even Paddy D....Samo and Doc both had MUCH better games. The opposition seemed intent on stopping Saad, which freed up Doc.The team looked far better balanced with a crop of hard at it guys - JSOS, Cottrell, Fogarty. And Crippa showing a bit of c%$# for the first time in a long time...Even though JSOS missed a couple of sitters, his impact was noticeable. Looks to have gained yard too?Bett's experience up forward cannot be underestimated.We have no one forward with the experience that Eddie has.....Betts had few stats but was a constant gnat all game. Certainly did his job.Blues by plenty.
