Hes had his best year yet, but Greater Western Sydney forward Jon Patton has put a bigger emphasis on the rising AFL clubs near-miss season than his own improvement. Ireland Sneakers Online .Sidelined by injuries for much of his first four seasons, only one of which he played in more than seven games, Patton in 2016 started to consistently deliver on the potential that prompted the Giants to take him with first selection in the 2011 draft.He missed only their first game of the year and finished with career season highs in games (23), goals (38) and marks (131).Pattons radar improved after a ropy start.He kicked 4.6 in his first five games and 34.10 during his subsequent 18 matches.Although held goalless in the clubs historic first finals win over cross-town rivals Sydney, Patton booted 15 goals in three games either side of that victory, bagging four in the preliminary final loss to the Western Bulldogs on Saturday.I could have marked some balls that I dropped, little moments, Patton told AAP.But you dont really feel like youve played a good game or a decent game when you lose like that.Ive played pretty much every game, which I havent done in the past, so its good to do that.While a preliminary final appearance represented a significant spike in improvement by a team that had never finished higher than 11th, Patton made it clear the Giants werent satisfied.Its been an amazing season, to go from not playing finals at all and not even really being in contention to getting to a preliminary final, Patton said.Its a good effort, but we all had one goal and we didnt get that.It was a good year, but we were almost there.Weve just got to buckle up for next year and remember this feeling.Well just learn from it and to get ready for a big pre-season.GWS had only five goalkickers against the Bulldogs, a marked contrast with the multiple scoring threats they had through the season.Jeremy Cameron (53) Toby Greene (44) and Steve Johnson (43) were prolific contributors, with Patton, Rory Lobb (29) and Tom Scully (23) chipping in regularly.Cameron topped the Giants goal-kicking list for the fifth time in as many years of their AFL existence.But in contrast with his game-breaking effort in the qualifying final win over Sydney, Cameron wasnt a factor on Saturday, kicking just 0.1 and tallying only five disposals and one mark.

Manager Slaven Bilic hopes they can replicate the performance that saw them beat United 3-2 in their final game at the Boleyn Ground on Tuesday.Stoke will want to finish on a high, but all we have to do is try to replicate the performance from Tuesday night and win the game, he said. That will give us minimum sixth and if Manchester United slip up, we can move to fifth. Jamie Redknapp joins Ed Chamberlin to preview all Sundays action in the Premier League While the Hammers are looking up the table, Stoke are in danger of finishing in the bottom half after a poor run of form over the last two months.Stoke have won just one of their last nine games and slip down to 11th if they lose to the Hammers and Swansea beat Manchester City. Team newsStoke midfielder Stephen Ireland is expected to be sidelined for eight or nine months after suffering a double leg fracture in training during the week.The Potters also have Ibrahim Afellay, Marc Wilson (both knee) and Jack Butland (ankle) unavailable.
