Game Chat – Adelaide vs Geelong

Written by Thommo on July 12 2018

WHERE AND WHEN: Adelaide Oval, Thursday, July 12, 7.20pm ACST


If its finals dreams aren’t already gone, a loss to Geelong would all but certainly write off Adelaide’s season. The Crows (7-8) are two wins outside the top eight and also have to make up a massive percentage gap in the remaining seven games. The Crows will need to move the ball quickly, play on at every opportunity and take risks if they are to get back to the entertaining, high-scoring brand of football they displayed in the last quarter against West Coast in round 15. A win for the Cats (9-6) would consolidate their spot in the top eight, while staying within striking distance of the top four. Prime movers Joel Selwood and Mitch Duncan are in superb form, while the electric Tim Kelly is one of the finds of the season. And then there’s 2016 Brownlow Medallist Patrick Dangerfield, who always produces something special against his former club.

  1. Does anyone have any idea of how long Bontempelli will take to recover from his operation? Google seems to think anywhere from one to three weeks – is this correct?

  3. How has Ablett scored 56? I’ve watched the game and have hardly noticed him except for try ing to get easy handballs from a teammate who has taken a mark.

    Granted, I’m on my 10th scotch but still…

  5. Geez, I did the ol take the VC off Danger with about 2 minutes to go in the game as Chris Scott can’t find it within himself to play him in the middle.

    Just tuned in for the last quarter and see the #35 running around at centre bounces….

    Maybe Chris Scott is the new Ross Lyon (I might be banned from the site if I suggest putting Chris Scott’s initials in FURL instead of Ross though…..)

    Oh well, I reckon good for footy if Danger plays middle, hopefully it stays that way….


    1. yeah, me too … have had the VC on him the last few weeks for no result, gave up tonight at last second … SC can be cruel!


  6. Bit stiff taking VC off Danger at the last minute, but very happy with him and Laird.

    Thought Sloane had a massive game too (don’t have him though).

    Happy with L Murphy too as my last non-premo spot on the field. I reckon he was pretty stiff not to bag a couple more with some of the horrible delivery he had, but I’ll take that 72 over Mihocek.

  8. Surely Chris Scott takes a look at Dangers performance tonight and sees how stupid his been wasting him down forward weekly.

    Dangerfield playing midfield is the best player in the competition. Why his even been chucked down forward is beyond me.


  9. Does anyone know if there’s a way to put the VC on Dangerfield after the game has finished?
