Geelong at their best are a very good side. Us at our best are one of the great sides of all time.Not me...confident as. We are in their heads and match up well. Better lead in games as well.
If we bring our best, we win.
I agree about getting in their head. Last time we beat them Scott had no choice but to publically say how good we were. He seemed to be searching for answers. Until now he has always been stubbornly set in the ‘they’re not that good’ mould. It was only last night he’s brought out his painfully transparent reverse psychology of ‘try to get to their level’ foolery. He’s never done this before, which means he’s stooping to mind games. Funnily enough, I reckon now was the time to stick to the ‘our form is as good as anyone’s’ line, because they‘ve smashed the last 2 teams of witches hats.
Regardless of the real message he gives behind closed doors, their players would have to feel a little bit of ‘why do we need to try and psych them out’ even in the backs of their minds. They’ll also have a fear of failure to choke on if they’re hanging onto this ‘Dangerfield deserves this because he wears oversized shorts’ myth.
Both port and us made them look second rate recently.
