After The Game – With Gerry ‘Gero’ Robertson – #4 vs Naarm

Freo Dockers by 38 points.

Number 4 on the ladder dishes up number 1, Melbourne Narrm, the reigning Premiers.

Last week in the loss to the Pies, words truly deserted me.

And after this amazing second half performance by Freo, words desert me for a second week in a row.

Fremantle. FANTASTIC!

Here’s the quick summary.

On-ballers, brilliant.

Midfielders, brilliant.

Backs, brilliant.

Forwards, brilliant.

A big nod to Justin Longmuir and the coaching staff.

What a game!

Big bow, Freo.

And a big apology from this doubter to all concerned.

I have to tell you that the Editor of this august journal was the first to ring and remind me that not all Freo folk are as judgemental as I have been. The Ed also reminded me that in Friday’s The Weekly Edition of the Shipping News he observed – ‘Wouldn’t it be something, though, if Freo dished up the smug Demons on Saturday afternoon?’ Obviously, he said, he sensed something was afoot. Yeah, yeah!

Anyway, folks, you can take it Flagmantle is back on!

See you next week.
