Here's my uninformed contribution to the post-match dribble.
Wilmering has potential and he's doing a good job in defence, but he stifles the go-forward because he lacks awareness of channels to distribute. The number of times he played back to Jurman reminded me of Gumby-ball. Time for him to have a spell.
Losing Schwegler killed our composure. It was always going to be a bit confused without him.
Muller (two dots) is the real deal. When he and the Big Fella get on the wavelength, we will be excited.
Jurman is up there with our best buys for the year, and so is Georgievski. Overall our recruitment for the year has been very good, and the team will get better, but we need the old heads on the field. For all their potential, our young guys require class around them to be effective.
Lopar is an alien from another planet.
It was my wife's first time at a match - she loved the RBB and the atmosphere, she was excited to see Jurman in the line-up (she sat next to him at a presentation dinner a few years back and thinks he's a good guy - but she still has Santalab as her favourite player), she enjoyed the facilities at the new stadium (and a couple of wines), and she looked great in a Wanderers jersey and short skirt
Crowd numbers could have been better, but we'll do better with later games.
In all, not a fantastic performance with the ball (not sharp at all) but determined if a bit untidy in defence, but not anything worth opening a vein about. I'm tipping 3 points away this week if we can get Schwegler and Muller (two dots) on the pitch.
