Game Chat – Port Adelaide vs Adelaide

Written by Thommo on May 8 2021

Where and when: Marvel Stadium, Saturday 8th May, 4:35pm (AEST)

Last time they met: Rd 2, 2020: Port Adelaide 17.8 (110) def Adelaide 5.5 (35) at Adelaide Oval.

Adelaide kicked the first two goals of the match and then… prison bars. Port absolutely dominated the Crows from then onwards, kicking 17 goals to 3 goals for the rest of the match with 9 different goal kickers. As usual for 2020, Crouch, Crouch and O’Brien were the few players to stand up for Adelaide.

Match Preview: This is surely a match for the South Aussie fans only. Although the Crows have improved from last season I can’t see this match being close. Port delight in flogging Adelaide and they will try their hardest to step on some necks tonight.

Thommo Watch: 

Port Adelaide
For a strong team, Port aren’t very Supercoach relevant. Bergman, Boak and Houston are the most popular players at a stretch. Sadly Martin Frederick was not named for his 13000 owners (although I’m guessing he’s going to be the sub).

Adelaide
And for a weaker side, the Crows are very relevant with Tex, Laird, O’Brien, Butts, Rowe and Berry.

Thommo’s Tip: Port by 40 points (tipping record 10/21).

    1. Most of us didn’t trade him in when it was announced he was dropped.

      If you went early, bench him and hope that if he comes it’s in the opening half.

      Got a -88 BE.

  3. I absolutely hate Rowe with the fact he does absolutely nothing almost every week, then just doesn’t look to make any more cash and then halfway into the 1st quarter with 3 touches, 1 goal and on 30 odd SC points…………

  4. I will be very upset if Rowe tons up tonight after ive dealt with his rubbish scores for the last month and now traded him out

  5. Half time and Rowe on 63…….
    Week after week he is useless for scores, then gets traded out, but then he finally decides to show up.
    Ahhh what a game Supercoach is!

    1. my only solace is i finally traded the #$#@$ to Brayshaw … fingers crossed that Brayshaw gets 150 now … but just typical … I held Cox instead of Rowe …

    1. Please don’t have him out for the game! If Frederick comes on it will only be for about a quarter and then really hurt his cash growth, with many coaches missing him

  6. typical – Frederick gets on with a quarter to score some points and ruin his price for those that chose not to pick him based on him not being named … with a -88 BE even if he scores 12 he’ll go up heaps …

  7. Frederick activated as the medical sub for Houston, ugh.

    There he goes as a downgrade option with proper cash gen and all the fools who blindly traded him in without checking teamsheets have been rewarded ffs lol.

      1. Why would you want a fringe rookie who now will have stunted cash growth short term and poor job security? Everybody else will wait for Jones to come back in.

  8. Well after tooing and froing all yesterday on whether to trade Frederick in, I can honestly say that I’m glad I didn’t. I now have one less rookie with dubious JS that after yesterday’s score has had his Cash gen quashed. Probably dodged a bullet there.
