I dreamed a dream in time gone by……

From our guest reporter Darren Spence

“I dreamed a dream in time gone by……When hope was high”…..waking up on Monday morning to a vision of Susan Boyle belting out Les Miserables tunes is enough to cause worry to any person.  However my worry was was it dream???  Could it have really happened???  So I jumped out of bed, wiped the sleep out of my eyes and went straight to the internet………and there it was…….  It wasn’t a dream after all and my Susan Boyle image was not some sad irony heaped upon a long suffering Dees supporter but was reality!  The Demons had inflicted the largest ever loss the Swans had endured under Paul Roos’ tutelage.

But I had to watch the game again.  Luckily I had the foresight to tape the game and stuff being late for work for this was going to be better than any musical Andrew Lloyd Webber could ever produce.

  • Seeing Colin Sylvia take over the role of hard man in the centre vacated by the injured Moloney.  The way he was getting the hard ball, breaking through packs and sure ball handling I was half expecting to see Charlton Heston appear after half time such was his Ben Hur like performance.
  • Aussie……..Aussie Aussie Aussie…..I must admit I had forgotten how good a footballer he really is.  As long as he can last 5 minutes without doing his hammy again we are in for a treat.  With him and LJ in the forward line they will both be vying for the lead role of the Wizard coming to the MCG amphitheatre in a new forward line show real soon.
  • Chip Frawley in a scene out of Tom and Jerry with the big man chasing down Leroy Jetta on the outer wing perfectly illustrated the never give in desire that has encapsulated our team.
  • Jamie Bennell again playing a blinder and his chase in the last minute of the game could see him a monty for the lead role in ‘catch me if you can’.
  • “Mamma Mia’ how good is Brad Green going?…..3 goals in the first quarter (OK 2 goals and a poster but we’ll take the 3) has him in a rich vein of form and he has to be a monty now to win his first well deserved ‘Bluey’.
  • Cameron Bruce had Ryan O’Keefe locked away like the Beast in ‘Beauty and the Beast’ and Cale Morton did an admirable job on the Swans’ ‘Jesus Christ Superstar’ in Adam Goodes.
  • Clint Bartram was ‘Cat’ like in defense and probably played his best game for the club.  He has made it very hard to drop him now from our best 22.
  • Colin Garland, Joel MacDonald and Jared Rivers patrolled the backline like the ‘3 musketeers’ never letting their opponents get any opportunity to break away.
  • The Big Russian again dominated turning the game for Mumford and Pike into their own ‘Rocky Horror Picture Show’.
  • Like “the Scarlet Pimpernel’ our own Tom Scully and Aaron Davey were everywhere and anywhere and they both ran and ran all day.

I could go on and on but finally I would add that the passion shown by the players when the final curtain fell and the beautiful ‘sound of music’ coming from the rooms in the form of our fabulous club song made the hairs stand up on the back of my neck and had me screaming for an encore.
