SwansCast Episode 26 - Why can't we win at home

Good evening all, it’s Monday and time for another instalment of your favourite Sydney Swans fans podcast, The Swans Blog’s SwansCast. I had hoped to bring you all happy tidings today, at least it was the intention, but hey, I’m too overweight and unfit to join the boys on the field to rev them up. They certainly needed a good revving at three-quarter time, or a good boot, depending on who you ask.

Another stinker first-half consigned the Swans to their third home defeat of the season. We have won our away games, a terrific performance against the league leaders West Coast Eagles in Round 1 really got our season started, but it has been stuttering ever since. Wins against a bloody good Western Bulldogs side and a stunning last-quarter against the Cats have masked over a few cracks that are beginning to show at the SCG.

Home form is clearly an issue now and you don’t have to wander far to garner a sense of the Swans faithful’s frustrations. Warranted perhaps, you cannot argue with some of the rational, but calls for the coaches sacking and players to be traded are a bit far off the mark. I wrote today about the change in game style and how its affecting the players output, as well as injuries and depth.

Anyway, the less said about the game the better. So let’s not dwell on the past any more than we have to. Unfortunately, the Swans simply weren’t good enough for long enough, and won’t get many results playing like that.

It’s a short sharp one tonight - I’m out and about celebrating Mrs Blogs’ birthday. In this weeks’ SwansCast, I’m joined by regular Stephen Treloar. We dissect the weekend of football that was and review the Swans disappointing performance against North Melbourne.
