    Wallace Calls Out Goody

    That so many are at the contest...is by design. That they play sparta-football......is by design. That we persist in blatant blitzkrieg....is by design. Opposition have twigged

    But only when a center bounce occurs . At other times and position the dynamic changes.

    GAMEDAY - Round 22

    Geez I don't. McGovern will chew up and spit out Weed. And it highlights a problem... we're effectively worrying about THEIR defender. They should be worrying about our forward. Bet they're not !!

    GAMEDAY - Round 22

    Goody about to be given another Masterclass. I hope he's paying attention as this will show what you can do even without all your list. Eagles by 23 No joy

    We should be capable and encouraged to adapt ( change mode ) . I never really see us do it. This to me must be by design. I'm sure by now , having attained AFL after growing up playing footy, that you ( players ) would have a handle on man to man. Mind boggling.

    Yes ...they are as good as any. Depends a lot though doesn't it in terms of how they're instructed to play

    Wallace Calls Out Goody

    As much as I have my misgivings about Goodwin...and I do...I really think the real culprits are his sup[port and mentors. it is entirely possibly that whilst Simon has some of his own weird and wonderful ideas..( and some may indeed work ,..for a time..under particular game circumstances ) the overall effect is no a cohesive one. The gameplan ( as it's put ) simply falls to pieces under duress. Duress is the prime ingredient of finals so it distinctly concerns me that if we still somehow manage to remain in the 8 come end of h/a we are particularly ill equipped to progress much further. Whoever it was who suggested our game ideology was honed from Pyrite has nailed it I reckon. One of the great problems in having a game plan tat relies of pushing the ball forward relentlessly and bombing is that if you dont maintain possession you are immediately caught with your pants down as opposition has instantly an effective chain of overlaps. Happens time and time again. To compound this because we look to protect a 'space' and not inhibit the man then invariably as the 'other' side gets the ball past the square there is more often than not TWO...not just one players ON. Theres often one just about the half back line...and/or one in either of the pockets. Hes there because he isnt COVERED...only 'guarded" We seldom have the virtual goalkeeper either. A lot of opposition goals are opportunistic and get through because no one can stop them...a lot of our goals are stopped because someone DOES !! Now either Goodwin is arrogantly thick as two short planks...which I would hope is not the case OR the composite of advice and input he's getting is just RUBBISH!! Im leaning towards the latter...but its Simon's job to interpret and implement. Again its not really whether we make the finals or not...in so much as if we're there but for 5mins...whats the point. That is no real achievement, not in my book. We should be relevant to September by now. If we arent...then change must happen

    Yes and no. In cricket the immediate area of competition is exactly the same. I really can't think of anything else where the ambiguity of the ball combined with differing dynamics of varying space applies.

    The No T$ No B$ Thread

    Welcome to sanctuary. We try to keep the outside world ( the nasty footy ) at bay....alas a few drop the ball and bring it in here but in the main it's fairly calm. It helps if you appreciate bananas

    Why then was one of our better players in Tmac incapable of owning the ball in the last and slotting a pretty straight forward 45-50 ( maybe 30 deg ) . He like the rest just hadn't the mettle for the moment. No composure...just.. get rid of the ball.... someone else can take responsibility. The argument of composure and age isn't absolute. The likes of Oliver and Fritsch have more composure than Jones for eg. Our defence strangely wasn't the worst aspect of the day. Nobody wanted/ could kick a goal. It was actually quite bizarre.

    I think slowly but surely a few more folk are beginning to seriously question the validity of too simple a style ...and one that requires skill, speed and daring when the bulk of our list lack the skills, aren't quick...and appear anxious to the point of traumatised under extreme pressure. My spectating buddies ( both players..old and current ) couldn't believe no one wanted to own the ball in the fwd 50 in last quarter...my b-i-l ( ex Collingwood...I know...I know ) says..hey ...any of your lot likely to kick it ( at goal )....all playing at hot-potato lol There's essentially two things stopping us from being serious contenders. The entirety of our list ( too many unskilled who can't kick ) and a Draughts like game plan attempting to play Chess. Goody needs to stop trying to bang square pegs into round holes. He needs much wiser and capable counsel/support. Neanderthal footy just ain't working.

    If we beat Meth Coast I will ...

    I mischievously posed the question upon this: Money is indeed money.. but in effect it's replaceable. Footy tipping however is a different currency. You either win or lose. This time of year many tipsters can't afford any errors. If you're a bit behind then the maverick selections come out i have to admit...I haven't selected the Dees in my tips. But I certainly hope we do win.
