Don't know about you, but I loved seeing the vision of Mark Neeld giving instruction to Woosher in the box.

We should thank him for Pedo, don't think anyone envisaged him playing a role at the club in 2017 after his first diabolical season with us, but he's been a handy pick up.

Why?

Because he's now influencing Essendon's future and not ours.

I would prefer it Neeld wasn't on tv, reminds me of dark times that I am trying to forget.

That's only fair.

We still owe them for Barry.

First time we've won since he joined Essendon. Ironically, it was the player he almost broke (Watts) and of his most questionable recruits (Pederson) that shone for us.

I wonder if Mark is showing Woosher where the nearest 'Reality Bus' stop is...

Neeld has the runs on the board as an assistant, and from what I've heard from a couple of Essendon-supporting mates, he's appreciated at the Dons, as he was at Collingwood. OK, he was a out of his depth as a senior coach, but no shame in that. You could make the same argument re Brendan McCartney.

Interesting that all the highly ranked assistants to Malthouse collingwood era failed as senior coaches, whereas Clarkson's are thriving.  I think that was the different leadership by both senior coaches.

Clarkson seems to let people take control within his coaching structure, whereas Malthouse was his way or no way from what I know.  Not all assistants can make it as a senior coach, but the AFL now recognise the value of highly skilled assistants that will remain within a club and make it successful, roles like senior assistant etc have been created.  However in a different development environment would Neeld and the other ex-pies assistant performed better as a head coach?

Seems to be the trend that the coach should be in his forties and the assistant in his 50's.

Mid to late thirties is too young to coach Too close to players age.

I think Eade is a better assistant than senior coach.He is too old to connect with the ice generation .

I suspect B Mc might have been deemed too old school for a senior spot,same with Neil Craig.

You may be right Biff. 

I have trouble connecting to the man bun. 

It is too humorous!
