Are Adelaide the Real Deal?

Post by bayman on Sun Apr 30, 2017 6:19 pm

I don't watch much afl football but they look very very good today against a previously unbeaten team, so I'm asking are they the Real Deal?

I would say yes they are

Certainly seem to be at the moment. They have a few key players without obvious replacements and would struggle if Jacobs, Sloane or Talia went out for an extended period.
Apart from that they look very good. Multiple goal scoring options, a flexible backline that works well together and a midfield that has a nice combination of grunt and pace.

They could easily finish top 2, have 2 home finals and then the Grannie at the G.

Over the last month if that is anything to go by, the Crows will be very lucky to be in the top 4 by the end of August, they do not have the grunt to be a top 3 contender.

after watching most of it tonight i'd have to agree, its easy to dominate when things go your way but when they don't go your way you should at least fight hard at every contest, this i don't think Adelaide did that well tonight & that has nothing to do with where the game was played, perhaps after all they are just front runners !!!!

They seem to be turning into the 2016 North Melbourne. fast out of the blocks but when the other teams have worked out how to stop them they have no plan B.

They've surprised me as I had Swans, Cats and GWS pegged higher.
