Game Chat – Geelong vs Carlton

Written by Huttabito on May 26 2018

WHERE AND WHEN: GMHBA Stadium, Saturday May 26, 7.25pm

SUMMARY
Just when you thought it couldn’t get tougher for Carlton, the Blues meet Geelong. On the rebound. In Geelong. And with the Cats’ biggest name vowing for redemption. Gary Ablett’s match last week was his least effective in his return to the Cats, but when you hear that he’s promised Chris Scott something special in his first game back at GMHBA Stadium in blue and white hoops, you stand up and take notice. The Cats were clinical in their performance against Greater Western Sydney at home in round seven after being made to look second-rate against Sydney the week prior, so last week’s insipid display against Essendon will have Carlton nervous. As the Blues travel down the highway for the first time since 1997, the memories of a 109-point loss to Melbourne six days prior will be ringing in the back of their minds. Brendon Bolton questioned his team’s effort against the Demons. If the players leave it at home, this could get ugly.

LAST FIVE TIMES
R19, 2017: Geelong 18.15 (123) d Carlton 8.10 (58) at Etihad Stadium
R10, 2016: Carlton 16.8 (104) d Geelong 12.13 (85) at Etihad Stadium
R8, 2015: Geelong 22.8 (140) d Carlton 9.9 (63) at Etihad Stadium

R21, 2014: Geelong 11.16 (82) d Carlton 11.10 (76) at Etihad Stadium

Hutta’s Tip: Geelong by 40 points

  4. What’s the deal with Kelly? Another poor week. Makes it much easier to pull him out for Danger next week.

    Traded Henry to Darling this week so I didn’t think he’d hit break even, looks like that was a poor choice at this point.

    Happy to get Simmo’s first good score since I traded him in. Cripps OK but not great considering VC at this point.

  5. Was looking to turn Doedee into Simpson next week but it looks like I’ll be turning Kelly into Pendles instead.

  6. Having a closer look at Cripps’ stats.

    7 frees against, 11 clangers… wtf?

    And 21 contested possessions – looks like he worked his arse off and did some really dumb shit.

  7. man, Henry did it again and pulled out another big score when he was on the line … he must play SC and saw his own BE!! Pity I traded him out – held Banfield instead (went for the extra cash *sigh*)
