Just got home from the match. My analysis of the game.
A good performance but 5 goals was very flattering on North Melbourne. 10 or 11 would have been a true reflection of the game. We dominated in every aspect of the game and it's only poor goal kicking once again that cost us a huge percentage boost. As a guy near me said, "if we could kick straight, we would be smashing teams." Another reason is that we would have most of the possession and kick a goal or 2, then a stupid mistake would gift North a goal and that would slow the game down. The only sour note was Suban's suspected broken fibula. Ballantyne has to get man of the match- 4 goals, countless tackles and rundowns. When the game was tight, he stood up and lifted not only the team, but the crowd as well. Fyfe is also going to be an absolute star and Pitt is also looking good. It was good to see Ibbotson back from injury. Bring on the Doggies next week.
Next Monday is going to be a big day of football. The Fremantle Derby at Fremantle Oval to watch the mighty South Fremantle Bulldogs kick the shit out of East Fremantle then train it up to Subi to watch the Purple Haze smash the Dogs. Can't wait.
