Thanks mate!

Port go from pretenders to contenders in game of the year

Thanks mate! it is indeed! Knockers can come at me, wait till they see the Prison Bar one I’ll be dropping at some point! 😂

Port go from pretenders to contenders in game of the year

No offence but a little sick of hearing about the Richmond outs. Port had no Rozee, no Marshall, no Burton, no Motlop (I know his credentials are questionable but he was in the first team prior to injury). Sutcliffe and Lienert were in the team! They do not get into a full strength Port side.

I mean they could fluke it but that Port performance is not repeatable imo, kicked 12.1 and Port played as badly as they have all season.

I agree it will be about form and injuries come finals time though.

That’s half my argument, and I understand freekicks are always going to be highly subjective to people on opposite sides of the fence, but are you telling me 12.1 is repeatable? Didn’t think so…

Forget Port Adelaide and the Brisbane Lions, St Kilda is this year's premiership dark horse

Yep they are a dark horse alright because they are highly unlikely to win it! They looked decent beating Port (I was there, hats off to the Saints) but they only kicked one point, and got the rub of the green with the free kicks (not just overall but in key moments and positions). I’m not sure that match is repeatable. Maybe if the confidence continues to build, but I’m currently doubtful.

Interesting and high quality read mate!

Good read!

The Guardiola tactics that have Melbourne City top of the table

Definitely questionable, I more tried to squeeze him in there as I thought a stand out candidate was lacking and he did on occasion play there.

The Socceroos team of the decade

The conditional nature of your ‘support’ is embarrassing mate, I wouldn’t be proud of it.

Port Adelaide: A divided and confused fan base

Hahaha

Scott Lycett and the Power of the unexpected

They jumped them in the first quarter without rain and to be honest only the second quarter was seriously wet so I think to hinge the whole result on it is overdoing it. Nonetheless, I agree the jury is out, they look like they could just as likely make the top four as miss the eight, which is utterly ridiculous.

Port's best win in years expands the contender circle

He’s been very good! I wasn’t so sure his recruitment was a good idea at the time, but happy to say I was wrong. He’s been owning the ruck contests and for such a big guy he gets around the ground really well, working very hard.

How Scott Lycett became one of the hottest ruckmen in the game

Yeh I’d agree, Wines has had a few decent moments but definitely can’t impact games for any length of time at the moment.

Port Adelaide: The heartbreak kids

I’m focusing on a good moment but its only as good as it is because frankly there were some serious disappointments at the end of last year and over summer. I wouldn’t say I’m convinced either if you mean as serious contenders…

Port's potential is limitless

My point is that its an exciting moment, not that we’ll walk our way to the premiership. First year players will drop off, loses will happen, I agree far more difficult challenges await!
