I feel like this is where we find out if we are a team that’s going to be looking to fight for the six or if we are going to be well below that level. Newy we’re pretty good in their last game and if they show any sort of desire against us we’ve got to meet that.
Was at CommBank on Sunday and they definitely should’ve put three or four past Western Suburbs. I’m confident Corica will get us up for this, but we can’t go in thinking Newy will just roll over for us.
No difference here. I went and got a test after Tuesday’s alert came through, only due to an absolute abundance of caution as my office re-opened yesterday after WFH for 5 months and I really didn’t want to be the guy causing it to shut again on the first day back.
Flick the switch. Push the panic button. That’s the urge right now, after three unconvincing performances full of frustration.
Some were already anxious about an ageing squad playing over-familiar football. For others, Luke Brattan’s ACL was the last, tragic straw. But the dire loss last weekend, when Macarthur suffocated the Sky Blues into a cold, windy submission, escaped no one …
The risks of COVID certainly makes one a little concerned. I mean I’ve accepted the fact that COVID in whatever variant, or Greek/Latin name they wanna call it, will always be around in the community, and the chances are I’ll catch it eventually. All you can do is look out for yourself - wear your mask, social distance where you can, and if you see somebody coughing and spluttering all over the place, call the police and report them as a biohazard risk.
I’m thrilled at the football being back, it’s great for my mental health, and certainly feels like life is somewhat returning to normal.
Hopefully Corica has put a rocket up their bums this week. Last Saturday night display was nothing short of atrocious. Newcastle at home historically has been a favourable match for us, but they’ve improved a lot under Pappas, and their foreign quota is a bit better than I think a lot of people were expecting. If we play like we did last week, it’s going to be a lot more difficult than it should be. Injuries to key players or not, we’ve still got quality across the park, so I’m hoping for a win for the good guys, and a few goals to get our season kickstarted.
