We have GA home memberships. We want to get there early to get good seats. Does anyone know what time the gates at Marvel open?

Kemp out and Carroll staying makes sense if Cripps has to ruck again

IMO Kemp is needed tomorrow. He can go back and release Young, if needed and/or play as a permanent forward tall and assist Charlie and JSoS from being double teamed. I’m confused with this non-selection.

Kemp on standby for tonight as there's a player who may struggle to be fit enough to play.

Sounds ominous. Us nervous nellies don’t need more reasons to be uneasy.

Any names in particular you're able to give us? :lol:

Notwithstanding the fact Cripps rucked a bit last week (mind you he was still in the centre square and stoppages for this so it's not like he was moved from his natural habitat) I don't GET the fan infatuation with fixing a problem by creating another one. Why would you move Young when we are already short down back and he has just recently started to show great signs of development down back?

Seems a rather daft thing to do.

Feed Parker a bolognese littered with salmonella?
Not a bad idea.
Be good to see the dick shit himself.

All jokes aside this is another test for Voss' chargers.
Let's give those bloods some blue bruises.

And just quietly do we think Voss had a word to LOB during the week, something along the lines of "If you rush your kicks again because you're clearly worried about getting slammed then you can go to the VFL and there you shall stay"

The only thing daft is your response. You need to comprehend what I said - ‘ if needed ‘ being the key and playing forward as 3rd tall being the preference. Young should and will play back tonight.

The Swans are slick and polished, so this will be a great test for our new defensive structures. Up forward we just can't be Charlie fixated.

Share the load and share the love coming inside F50. Eyes down, hit up short, if need be. Don't let them get set up behind the ball 25 out from goal and then spread wide or we are doomed. They are a rock solid defensive Unit so we might just be a tad undermanned without Harry.

Never-the-less, give it your best shot Blues and let us see where you are really at. Now the Team is heading for the pointy end of the ladder, this is the sort of game that can really announces the Club is genuinely on the rise.

Should be a cracker.

Regards Cazzesman

I'm not overly confident about tonight as we have some real quality out of the team but I'm loving what we're seeing at the moment.
Give me a team that plays tough, aggressive, brutal footy every day of the week over bruise free, outside high scoring football.
Whether we win or lose, we are seeing our midfield smashing in to contests and our small forwards chasing as hard as any team does. As supporters it's something to be proud of and it's brand that most other teams wished their players could produce.
Well done to the coaches and players for what they have produced as a collective.

Would you rather Cripps being manhandled by the opposition ruck with every umpires eyes on them or being manhandled by a tagger behind the umpires back while the umpire is focussed on the ruck duel?
