VFL R16 - Werribee v Port Melbourne

Unfortunately I will be missing this game.  A crying shame that there is no media coverage either via broadcast, online or radio.

Shapes up as a season defining game for Port Melbourne and both sides desperately need the win to shore up their chances of September action.

It was a day that could only be described has highly disappointing day for Port Melbourne, the push for finals football now seems a long long way away.

I'm confident that we will play finals Northport however I am not confident that we will do any better than week 2. It will be a good effort to get to the 2nd week and anything after that will be a bonus. The 3 match mid season test playing with the big boys of Essendon, Footscray and Williamstown proved that we are not at that level. Id love to be proven wrong but the way we are playing at the moment I can't see or say any positives. Ball movement looks slow, bad decision making especially with the handball, team moral doesn't seem to be there as players seem far too quiet, confidence seems very low. I'm not sure what can be done to turn this around, we can no longer blame injuries. No fire in the team at all and I woudn't be too suprised if Coburg knocks us off this week, they are in with a real chance.

While port are in a bit of a slump werribee are looking good for a finals spot. Majority of werribee losses have been by not that much. If they play finals they can match any team. Could easily make it to week 2 of finals possibly further. Will be the wildcard come September.

Can't believe that you have thrown the towel in very early Mega.

Don't ever forget that you have been very spoilt over the years & it's hard to win them all.

Don't be worrying about week 2 of the finals, make sure you get there first,

We might be from the bush. but we ain't green

Agree Mega, it's not just a deficiency in one area that can easily be addressed, it's across all facets of the game as you say.

I agree that Coburg are a very real chance if not favourite to win.

The way the playing group at Port are playing at the moment it crossed my mind that maybe there was some trouble amongst the playing group. 

 

Something major needs to happen to jolt the side back into playing the footy that we're capable of.

Footy is a confidence game. Port might need a win to get that winning feel back. They are still in the eight and a win will give them some confidence. Coburg will not be a pushover though.

Don't think Coburg will come up favourites, my best guess is Port $1.30,Coburg $3.25,just saying
