The North Melbourne one still staggers me. They haven't even been that good in that time! Plus my best mate is a Kangas supporter so that has really caused me some grief. Please, please, please let us [censored] them this year!

What staggers me is the fact that we lost at the last start to so many teams that missed out on making the finals - Collingwood, Fremantle, Hawthorn and North Melbourne (twice last year) when a win in one of those games would have seen us make the finals. Win 3 of those games well, which is achievable if you aspire for finals footy, and you’re in the running for a top four placing. 

No use crying over spilt milk I guess but you would not want to drop the “easy” ones.

SYDNEY: Lost the last 6 (Last Win R17 2010)

 

Its strange that the two major capital cities only play each other once a season.

I'm a little confused by the Sydney stat. If 2010 was our last victory against them (Roos' biggest loss at the helm of Sydney), how come we've only lost 6 in a row? It'd be 7 wouldn't it? Providing, that is, that we've played them once each season since. 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017.

I believe we drew with them in near the beginning of a season around 2011? Perhaps that’s why?

Exactly why i am still filthy on the club for last year. It is as if they didn’t want to have any success, when we all know they had serious ability. 

This is why in my eyes Goodwin is under some pressure this year, he simply has to prepare the players better mentally this season. 

How many first quarters were we flat last season?

far too many.

He doesn't have to, another topic for you to don the hair shirt and vent, I am sure there are others like me who actually wonder why you support a team that brings you so much angst and misery

Stats above mean sod all to me it's a new season

Barring a bad run of injury, poor umpiring decisions, poor form, serious weather incidents, Darwin, concentration lapses, or a team wide goalkicking malaise setting in, we should be ok this year

My God. That is almost funny Satyr. How do you do it??

With the amount of poor starts to games last year and the fade out at the end of 2016, whilst Goodwin was pretty much running the show, as head coach it is fully his responsibility to have the team prepared correctly

why shouldn’t he feel some heat in 2018

Winning is not easy, anyone can lose

Geelong, Essendon, Sydney, North, Carlton, Hawthorn are all teams we seem to have a bit of trouble with. I think we must break the North curse if we are to go further (the JLT game doesn’t count.)

The North Melbourne one simply must end this year. We cannot keep losing to that rabble.

Yeah, I'm with you there. Just so many winnable games that were dropped. I had us top 5 but those winnable games cost us big time by the end.

Goody needs to eradicate this if we are to go anywhere.

Sure does.

I hope he does succeed, but it happened too often and in the same ways last year, so i do have some concerns. He has been in the club for 3 years now.
