  1. Breaking down the 15 goals to 1

    It is round 4 but the inconsistency within games is an old problem. I think that's why we see so much frustration from supporters on this forum
  2. Breaking down the 15 goals to 1

    According to Goodwin in his after match interview, they tried a few different things but that they didn't work ... personally didn't notice a lot of changes other than Frost going forward in the last quarter.
  3. Breaking down the 15 goals to 1

    Clarkson did what most coaches do when something isn’t working. He changed a few things (nothing innovative) but MORE importantly their players where committed. The biggest difference after the 1st quarter was more about our lack of two way running, and the differential in the tackling and clearance counts. Our players just can’t commit to 4 quarters re game plans or intensity and coaches can’t get a response from them often enough
  4. Is Goodwin the right guy....

    Our in game inconsistency and two way running should have been sorted in the off season. It’s very hard to change in season. And so Goodwin and his coaches have an uphill battle to fix something they failed to do in the 6 months prior. The reality is you can’t replace players as easily as you can coaches and the chemistry between player and coach isn’t optimal as they don’t follow instructions to their potential

    Or the blind optimism of younger types

    In: two way running out: simulated running
  7. Post Match Discussion - Round 4

    Jones and Viney often set the tone for us when we are down. Hard to do when you are tagging
  8. Post Match Discussion - Round 4

    Imagine what the final result might have been had Rioli, Frawley and Puopolo not been injured and unwell. All 3 are quality players but it also hampered the Hawks ability to rotate players in wet conditions.
  9. Post Match Discussion - Round 4

    People can be disappointed about our performance today but we shouldn't be surprised as it continues the within game inconsistency we have witnessed so far this season and the last season or two prior. All teams have periods where things don't go perfectly but we go completely missing in parts of all our games. Against half decent sides like Hawthorn and Geelong the game will be taken away from you. Against younger developing side like the Lions and the Kanga's we can still win games with the talented list we have, but it papers over the cracks.
  10. Shepherding the man on the mark

    What we should be asking is why we are not doing it? Which comes back to the quality of the coaching.
  11. Be Patient with Lever

    We have lost our dash down back. Our defensive structure seems to be a mess and Hunt (VFL) and Hibberd are no longer able to use there attacking assets. Lever is a worry but still has time on his side. Starting to worry a little though
  12. Lyon on Brayshaw

    Isn’t he friends with the Bradshaw families
  13. Be Patient with Lever

    Let’s not over cook this. He just needs to develop some trust in the back half by beating or nullifying his man and covering space at the right times. Hasn’t done that enough just yet hence some criticism. He can intercept as much as he likes after that
  14. Will we break the hoodoo?

    With north cutting back their list and us being a year older and a year wiser, a loss today on top of the way we played round 1 and 2 with major lapses, would highlight we learnt nothing from last season

    The more the merrier. Beggers can’t be choosers
