  1. Past hour
  2. He is not a defender. Should be played on a wing with his height and speed. When Lever and May return Goodwin might actually work it out.
  3. Viney gone with a shoulder more than likely
  4. Agree with most of this. Season is shot. Fritsch us being played out of position by necessity because of injuries. He is the most natural wingman on our list and we need to play him there for the rest of the season . No wonder his confidence is shot he does not have the build to play back. In regards to our I50, the delivery is diabolical often because there is nobody there unless it's a centre bounce. They all press so far up the ground and when we win it the opposition simply outrun us, chase and we kick under pressure usually straight to an opponent. This comes down to fitness and game plan , both of which are downright disgraceful which is an indictment on both the players and the coaching staff.
  5. This is Goodwin’s 5th year as coach/coach in waiting. No idea!!
  6. He has speed and strength but no idea really how to use it. He is consistently out maneuvered or pushed under the ball when in good positions. When he does run with it he'll either fluff the kick or send it to an out number then stand there watching as it comes back over his head. He's an athlete not a true footballer
  7. So we need to implement a Hawthorn chip-pass style game-plan and also do away with following Richmond's manic premiership winning style, except for their manic example of getting rid of all their coaching assistants?
  8. Pruess or Keilty for Weid. That is all. A bunch of folk lucky. Keep playing with positions. Fritsch forward for one.
  9. He can do all that at Casey SW. Pruess out of goal square pls (if fit) with Jeffy at his feet. Do you return T-mac forward and drop T-Smith for Keilty (back)? Or leave T-Smith up forward and drop T-mac for Keilty?
  10. Pruess for Weids (if fit). Decide on other changes after Casey plays. See if anyone puts their hand up. As a minimum we need to replace ANB whether injured or not. Very surprised he was called on for last night. By all reports he didn't show anything in the match before the under 18s fiasco. Makes you wonder where Goody's head is at bringing back someone completely out of form into a team where so many were already struggling.
  11. There are simple reasons why we can't connect going i50 - in the last two years we have let go (for good reason) most of our best field kicks to i50 in Watts and Hogan (when he played upfield) and to some extent Kent. Complemented by Hannan and Fritsch we were getting enough qulaity delivery to offset the butchering and blind bombs from our midfielders. By sheer weight of i50 numbers we scored often enough to win. - Fritsch is no longer the link-up player we lauded him for (correctly) as the Watts replacement but he is now languishing in defence. - When Hogan played fwd he would mark or bring the ball to ground (then sulk) giving us a chance at ground level. Our problem was not letting players go. It is the cumulative effect of all of them going/not being played in the fwd half without their skills being replaced. So our i50 are now appalling in quantity and quality, our forwards aren't experienced enough against good defenders and there is no one to create a contest in the air. Of course their are other i50 connect problems but I believe they start from the above.
  12. Then he should have stayed on to finish the job and not get shirty from the commentary box.
  13. “I’m glad I had 50 on with ladbrokes at 2.50. Wait what? Coaches can’t bet. “
  14. Did everyone notice that the Richmond guys stood arms around each other during the ANZAC ceremony and we stood apart from each other? Contrast that to the Melbourne v Geel final last year, where the opposite took place. Is this a sign of a bigger issue at play than purely game style, structures etc?
  15. It’s clear Goodwin has no idea what to do. The game plan from last year has been picked apart by the opposition and the players can’t implement what he wants. This manic hand pass game has to stop. Hawthorn won 3 premierships in a row by chipping the ball around by foot at the G. Why couldn’t we mimic their game style? We need to action what Collingwood and richmond did with their assistant coaches. Clear the decks and get new ideas into the club. Im still in shock that the season is over in April

  17. Wèed needs to go with TMac back in the forward line, play Kelty or Petty down back. Retire Lewis, say goodbye to ANB and work from there.
  18. Yes but we aren’t mentally anything like them. We are a bunch of marshmallows. It started in Perth in the Prelim and sadly no recovery in sight. Seriously, 2 goals after quarter time last night. I was there - no wind and wasn’t that cold. No excuses. Richmond should’ve won by 10 goals. We are going nowhere.
  19. We should give Bull Smith a run at centre half forward.
  20. The only Wagner I'd bring in is Josh. He can play half back and release Fritsch to play forward. If Preuss is okay then he comes back in. Will they have the guts to drop Weideman? Outside of that, there isn't much else at Casey, while May, Lever, AVB, Hannan, Joel Smith, Nev etc all won't be ready for the Hawks game.
  21. No idea. When a team is so slow, Frost stands out like a beacon. His tackling has gone up a notch too. My only criticism of him is to run and take them on more.
