Game Chat – St Kilda vs Carlton

Written by Motts on July 30 2021

Where and when: Docklands at 7:50pm (AEST)

Last time they met: Round 5, 2020: Carlton 8.7 (55) DEF BY St Kilda 11.7 (73) at The Docklands.

Last five: St Kilda 3-2, Carlton 3-2

Match Preview: I’ve got a policy on this site that I ask all the writers to adhere to and that’s to not be derogatory about any team. It’s that policy and that policy only that is stopping me from providing my honest opinion about Carlton right now. The Blues will get beaten and beaten easily in this game. The Saints have loved playing us in recent times and I’m not sure the Blues are playing for their coach anymore. Not after last week. Not when everything was on the line against the bottom-placed Roos.

Mottsy Watch: 

St Kilda
Jack Steele, Max King, Rowan Marshall
Carlton

David Teague. I want to see him come up with alternatives once St Kilda start negating his planned tactics and/or scoring heavily.

Mottsy’s Tip: St Kilda by 30 points (tipping record 38/54).

  1. Trade Taranto and go to Marshall?. Only two trades left and in a QF in cash league
    TU yes Go all out to try and win QF, completes fwd line and can play bramble on field
    TD no wasted trade, hope Taranto comes back and hope that Treacy or brockman can deliver as f6

  2. LATE CHANGE | Paddy Ryder is OUT for the Saints, replaced by Paul Hunter.

    Cooper Sharman (STK) and Marc Murphy (CAR) the medical subs.

    1. Nah, Carlton haven’t run an on ball tagger this season.

      The likely tag, if any, is Dunstan to Walsh.

  3. Hi all, it’s finals time!!
    Last week I traded Dusty & Waterman > Dale & Matt Parker
    Before trades this week I have 2 trades left and $192,600 ITB.
    DEF: Laird, Mills, Stewart, Lloyd, Short, Whitfield (Madden, Bianco )
    MID: Walsh, Macrae, Titch, Oliver, ZMerrett, Jelly, Bramble, Sharp (Durham, Newcombe, Downie)
    RUC: Gawn, Grundy (Reeves)
    FWD: Dangerfield, Ziebell , De Goey, Dale, Greene, Bolton (Brockman, Parker)

    Was thinking of perhaps getting Rowan Marshall in for one of Bramble or Sharp via DPP with Danger.

    Any advice/feedback would be greatly appreciated.

    Cheers!!

  7. I have just watched 5 times in the last 15 minutes where Walsh was able to make space but his teammates weren’t good enough by hand or foot to actually get him the ball.

  8. Geez Bolton better fire this week as at the moment I’m absolutely filthy that I traded him in last week, only to see my bench player in Parker double his score – wish I’d waited till this week to trade in Marshall.
