Play Nahas forward!
Over the past couple of games, Port have missed some critical chances in front of goals. After the loss against Sandringham, we were even worse in front of the big sticks against Coburg finishing 7.17, and certainly creating enough chances to win the game. I feel that part of this is having Nahas running out of defence. I think we need to play him deep in a forward pocket to feed off contests created by our taller forwards. He is deadly around goals, and should spend more time in that area. Tobes had some great run through the centre, but his kicking for goal in the past fortnight has been very ordinary. Let's just see him kicking it to that hotspot 20-25M out dead in front. Certainly Dukes has had troulbe in the forward line lately, constantly coming up aginst multiple defenders in a marking contest. Would it be worth playing Bonaddio at FF and really crashing packs to give our smalls around goals a chance? I don't think Bona is getting enough game time either and perhaps we should be playing both him and Fanning on the ground, while rotating Dukes and Pitt. Thoughts? It's a 'MUST WIN' against the Mustangs this week. Lift Port! LIFT!

LIFT![/quote] I think this would be a great idea David as we must try something to get back to the winning list if not players that are not performing must go to the reserves to find form and give someone that is playing well from the seconds a go as we might find our season will be wasted and would not like to be the coaching staff as they will be out of a job next year if we don't make the final's plus few players might not be with us next year. Go Borough!

Gday Guys, Totally agree. I have named some of the players in another thread. I think that the time has come that players are going to have to be chosen on form alone. Some very good players have been really struggling and it is obvious that the current mix is not working. The club has great depth and may need to inject speed or players who can carry the ball. The season is slipping away so now is a great chance for everyone to be proactive and do something about it. Sunday is a huge game.
