Honestly, I'm pleased to see Genia benched. Whatever's going on with him, he's been very ordinary this year and seeing him take up the hideous Gregan-esque two-steps-and-pass routine has been awful. It's a shame Cooper wasn't dumped as well but I suppose we can't have everything.
The forwards really, really
have to get their act together or we face further humiliation. McKenzie's bullshit about "dumbing down" his game plan (there's been a plan??) is all very well but no one can do anything without the football and the forwards have to start securing it. Of course, Cooper will throw one of his stupid no-look passes and give it away again pretty much immediately but regardless, the forwards have to step up or we're screwed.
