This week's weekend review podcast with Justin Mitchell and Steven Park. We were competitive for a half of football, with Florent and Heeney dominating. But as so often has been the case this year, shut a player or two down, and you stop the Swans. It's 6 losses on the trot now and our season is lurching to a grinding halt in a fortnight.

This week's weekend review podcast with Joshua Maher and Steven Park. Another hard fought game, another close finish, but again, another heart breaking result. The Swans lacked the polish they desperately needed in key moments, but it was the lesser lights that really gave us a chance to win. Considered rank outsiders before the match, it came down to dubious umpiring and a midfield that was belted before the match was finally decided by the final siren. Another classic Sydney Derby. We've got the review, the good, the bad, the ugly, the clown files, the social guff and the usual stuff.

This week's weekend review podcast with Joshua Maher and Steven Park. While we stuck with the Cats for two and a half-quarters, they exposed our woefully ill-equiped forward line and midfield, leaving us firmly entrenched in the bottom 4. Will Hayward and Callum Sinclair already heading for season ending surgery, and Buddy Franklin still questionable.

This week's weekend review podcast with Justin Mitchell and Joshua Maher. That sure wasn't a game for the history pages. But it's another loss in a season full of them. We're now solidly languishing in the bottom four, with more injuries to worry about. The team copped a shake-up heading into the weekend, and it did its job, but again, it was the young players leading from the front. There's always next week... yeah against Geelong.

This week's weekend review podcast with Justin Mitchell and Joshua Maher. It was another 'almost' performance from the young, developing side. But after the dust settled, Swans coach John Longmire made his admissions. Franklin and Menzel played despite limited prepartion, and the gamble didn't pay off. But across the AFL landscape, Sydney's issues paled in comparison. In just one week, two AFL coaches have been sacked, Brad Scott from North Melbourne and Brendan Bolton from Carlton. Rhyce Shaw turned in a stunning first coaching performance, and showed that he's got what it takes.

This week's weekend review podcast with Justin Mitchell and Joshua Maher. It's been been 5 long years since we put the Hawks to the sword. Last time we did it - in 2014 - it was Franklin's 2.7 that proved the difference. It's great to get one on the old enemy, even if it was only 3 goals.

This week's weekend review podcast with Justin Mitchell and Joshua Maher. Two weeks in a row we've hung tough when it looked like our opponents were going to run over us.

This week's weekend review podcast with Justin Mitchell and Heather Quinlan. It's the same message on rewind. Not competitive enough, don't work hard enough, don't do it enough. Enough with the excuses. Just come out and tell us what we already know! This team is rebuilding, we're not dumb. Comparing 2019 to 2017 is ignoring the gaping issues with the team, on and off the field. You don't turnover half your team in three years and expect to compete with the best. Saturday night proved that, we're just not good enough.

A great first half doesn't make a four quarter performance. Longmire lamented it, the players lamented it, and the SCG is no longer the fortress it once was. One win from our last seven games - one more loss and it's our worst run since 1994. With games against Richmond, GWS Giants, Hawthorn, Essendon, Brisbane and Geelong to come, it's not looking great before the bye.
