    Could be an absolute cracker of a game.
    Roy back in will be huge, will Dimi be back?
    Given we have nothing to play for except our best front 4 getting game time before semis, he will probably start on the bench depending on when he gets home.

    City starting to get players back on the park are looking pretty strong now.
    WE DON'T DO WALKING AWAY !

    I think we need to build momentum and confidence - Ernie will start building. Remember the run we went on back end of '08? 3 wins onthe trot as we headed into the finals.

    Dimi is expected to be back. Game is in London so flights shouldn't be an issue and I reckon he'd get business class.

    Good chance he will just be on the bench tonight and may not get a run at all - Bert would have seen enough the other night and has others to look at.

    It'll be interesting to compare Ernie to GVE. Both did well (thus far) with a squad others thought was mediocre.

    We've looked shit across the park the last two weeks. Nothing makes me think anything different will happen this week. Maybe slightly better upfront with Roy.

    Thinking a draw or a loss by a goal. Our defense is just too shit without Boogs.

    As Dave said in the pod, Boogs injury may not qualify and there is not really enough time to get someone up to speed.

    Thank **** we are back at home.

    Abit of attacking depth back this week will be huge.

    We need to build some momentum before the finals and get back to the goal scoring form we had earlier in the season. We've won too many ugly games this year its time to change that.

    It's only season ending because of how few games there are left. His injury was estimated at 8 weeks. Needs to be 10+ to qualify.

    The only option is to use the squad spot vacated by nabbout

    The general negativity has me surprised. We've played some poor football for a few weeks after we've played a game against Sydney so this run comes, to me, as no surprise.
    We've played 4 if the last 5 in the road as well so getting the player back home with a 9 day break could because is ordered.
    I'm also not prepared to write Jackson off after one poor game. It's unfair to blame it all on him when the midfield was so poor in the last match.

    In terms of shots conceded, last week wasn't the worst in the last few weeks. Adelaide were certain more accurate than other teams but we've been allowing plenty of chances and that's down to our attacking style of play.

    It surprised me people are seemingly ready to.write off our season.

    All I ever wanted from the Jets was for them to play attacking football - and scoring in 24 games straight is proof enough they have achieved it.

    Absolutely no complaints about this team or the way they play from me.

    I still think we are the team to beat come finals time and have no issues with Bert simply using the last few games of the regular season to get us ready to win the grand final.

    We will miss Boogs no doubt but if the forwards put on a show come finals time we can score three or more against anyone.
