Good point. I think they have the squad, but they've definitely choked more than few times. They've underachieved. Mentality?
They seem to lack the ticker required to do the hard work and hard yards when things become a grind.

GWS was the same.

Reckon West Coast is the team most likely to play us in the Grand Final this year.If on song the game would be a cracker.

yeah, I said years ago GWS wouldn't win a flag, plastic culture. They made the GF I guess, but looks like they won't get that high again for a while. West Coast always had ticker for most of their history.. i guess they feel lucky they avoided us in 2018.

Watched the replay again tonight - surprisingly fast hard game although I still remembered the highlights from watching it last year and there were many.

They were good, we were just better - simple really.

Just as it wasn't fair we had to play them in QLD but we did and beat them anyway even off our own patch in Melbourne

They are obsessed with Perth, they must know they can't beat us in Melb, not even with a 5 goal head start....

West coast wouldn't have a flag if they played anyone else on that day.
5 goals down, only Collingwood

West coast aren't good.
They are one team we need to slap on there own ground, to silence there supporters.
But who really cares? if Gilligan didn't give them the GF last year, they will never get it.

Got a lot do wth being the big dog in a 2 team town.
Especially when the second Dog seemigly has no obvious ambition to take the top spot and is happy enough to just sit over in its corner get a schmacko and an occasional bone thrown its way.

Yep they deride us for 2018 but our failure is what handed them the flag...................deep down they know it too.

I am happy that they did win it though it erased a shiit tonne of my pain, especially the way they snatched it in the dying minutes.

I watched that game again after we lost the first final against Brisbane. It really cheered me up.

They are basically useless outside Perth anyway. A side considered a contender every yr that can't make the Prelim stage is overrated IMO

Regardless i see 2018 no fonder then 1982. 2 dominate seasons without reward.
We were let down by Rance, he had a shocking 2 qtrs and totally cost that game.
Degoey was made to look like Carey and Rance was like johnny Manton.

To me West Coast are an unbalanced side. With their tall forward structure the need a player who is good with the ground ball and can quickly turn from attack to defence and vice versa. Ie a Willie Rollie. Due to the conditions in Perth their tall structure can be more effective than elsewhere

I don’t regard Liam Ryan as a great ground ball player. A dynamic player who would be in the best 22 in any club but a different style to what I think they are missing
