POST MATCH DISCUSSION - Round 6

Recommended Posts

Was tonights game (North v Doggies) a comedy of errors or what?

I have never seen so many unforced turnovers in 1 game ever. They won't be up there for long bringing this rubbish  time for us to swoop?

YES.

People on here talking about winning 5 in a row, players talking about finals, the over-hyping of Truck's debut. Spelled trouble from the start. Excuses will include a short turnaround, inexperience, Etihad, blah, blah, blah, but again its COMPLACENCY. It's time to grow up and pull the proverbial head out of the backside. So, so disappointing but all too familiar.

Too tall. One of frost or.pedo needed to not play. 

Won't be hard to drop players this week.

As my father used to say we played like millionaires expecting someone else to do the work

Sack Roos. Drop T Mac to make a statement. Retire Dunn. Banish Kent, Hunt and Wagner. Get a new group of selectors. Encourage the Prince to pursue a political career.

I said pre-game this had a loss written all over it, but the recent Melbourne had me believe it wouldn't be the same.

Unfortunately, I've been let down. Again.

Really, really disappointed.

I've never seen so many goals kicked with 3,4,5 forwards on 1 defender. I'm not sure whether there's something wrong with the plan or the application. I reckon it's probably the latter. 

Hopefully the boys bounce back next week.

Aside from Jones, Viney and Hogan, not a single other player has won his position.

Doesn't surprise me too much. We still are amazingly immature.
Note to MFC and it's players: the next time you win a game (consecutive games), shut the hell up and just play.

The lads at Casey who have been struggling to get in should go in to tomorrow's game slobbering like hyenas. There are spots ripe for the picking.

There need to be some red hot pokers inserted in a large number of arses. Hogan, Viney and Hogan are excused. MacDonald can go first.

What the [censored] happens in the space of 5 days that turns our small forwards to rubbish? Was this coaching from Richo?! I don't get it at all.

If they were tired with the short break, something plenty of posters here raised during the week, how the hell did the selectors not see fit to make changes? Wagner and Hunt were never going to keep up great form for extended patches, adding a zero gamer to that list was a disaster in the end.

We desperately needed Oliver and, frankly, he deserved a spot in the team more than Petracca (as did several others, to be honest). If Petracca got given his first game because we wanted to attract a larger crowd to Shitihad, it was a shameful decision.

This is what JV is quoted as having said;  "If we can keep the team consistently performing how we are, I don't think it's unrealistic we find ourselves in finals at the end of the year."

Please read and disagree directly with this statement before citing Jack's comments as contributing to this loss.

Sam Frost is special, and not in a good way.

Like a baby giraffe. And also not in a good way. 

Pedersen is that much more useful it's a joke. Can't play them both. 

Also Wagner, Hunt, Harmes, Bugg, Kennedy, Petracca... Way too many too inexperienced and/or NQRs in the one team for me. It's bad enough we need to put up with Roos' favourite Lumumba every week, and the yo-yoing performances of Tyson, McDonald, Salem and Kent.

I haven't been able to watch the game today and suspect I won't, but on the basic stats alone I suspect it won't be too hard to find room for ANB, Brayshaw, Oliver and/or Trengove.

Kent's had 8 touches after 25 last week and 21 the week before. Has Frost touched the ball since quarter time?

I find it difficult to fathom how we could be getting ahead of ourselves merely a month after the Essendon debacle.

I also don't want to let myself believe that we debuted Petracca earlier than his form warranted because we wanted to pull a crowd to a home game. That's the MFC of 2009, should not be the MFC of 2016.

Please, please, please let Gold Coast go in as short favourites next week. I never want this club to be favourites ever again, ever. If we ever are, I'll bet my life savings against us and retire a happy man.

Sadly, the signs were there in the first quarter when we were winning and even at times against Richmond.

We were lazy, making dumb errors and overusing the ball.
