  1. I can't stand Lyon and have never wanted him as coach in the past. But now it suddenly seems that he'd be the perfect fit for our list - that coach that can focus on getting the best out of players that are near their prime and instil a disciplined, proven game plan.
  2. Surely he can't find a way to squirm his way out of this one...
  3. Or we could look at it as an opportunity to hit Richmond while they're well off their mark. Obviously we're playing trash football too but I'd rather face this Richmond than Richmond of 2019.
  4. Unfortunately I think the facts point to the contrary in that regard.
  5. I'm with you on that. As long as they work hard on their leading patterns too, three talls might just be the change we need up forward, and something we haven't had for a while.
  6. Great to hear mate, just gave him a follow on Twitter 👍
  7. Agreed, it was the biggest take away for me too but I felt like I harped on about it enough yesterday. Yesterdays game has eradicated a huge amount of the confidence I had in Goody. Coaches can certainly adapt and improve over time, but we just aren't seeing that with Simon.
  8. Watched it again and regret it. However these are my major takeaways from the painful spectacle that was yesterdays match. Positives: Hibberd looked better than he has in a long, long time. Hard at it and used the ball far more intelligently. Joel Smith improved plenty on his performance from last week. The jury is still out on whether he’ll make it as a defender but improvement was more than welcome. Viney looks set to continue his strong form this year. May and Lever looked better together. Obviously there is a long, long way to go before Lever reaches the form he was in at Adelaide (if ever) but some improvement and more cohesion was good. Kozzie splitting a pack in the third quarter like a bloke 30cm taller and 30kg heavier. Everything he does is class. Negatives: I was a big fan of Lockhart after round one but yesterday his composure was non-existent. Pinged three times (?) holding the ball when trying to take an extra step or moment through traffic was simply not good enough. Needs to work on his awareness. VandenBerg looks a long way off the pace. Hoping he finds his feet quickly, along with some of that 2018 form. No second key forward… what the hell was the selection committee thinking? Goodwins failure to react to Geelong’s obvious game plan was criminal. Dangerfield and Selwood both with repeat efforts at playing and diving for frees. Expected but doesn’t make it any easier to watch, pathetic.
  9. I think Viney deserves a bit more credit for his performance yesterday. Stood up late in the game to drive us forward a number of times and gave us as good a shot as any at winning that game.
  10. Yeah at least there were 44 goals kicked when we lost by 186 points though! Jeez.
  11. I thought it was a vast improvement on his round 2 performance tbh, looked far more composed and played a much smarter game down back. Still a long way to go though.
  12. Yes it was well and truly overpayment for what he's produced so far. However I think today he showed some solid improvement and was able to play to his strengths. The defenders looked liked they'd been working on it, with May and Smith both wrapping up their man at times, allowing Lever to fly and mark or spoil. There's not much else we can do with him right now - we're not delisting him and we're not trading him and can only hope he finds the elite form he showed at Adelaide.
  13. I've been in the pro-Goodwin camp up until now. However this afternoons game has persuaded me that we need a change. Extremely uninspiring football and clear failure to respond to Geelong's obvious game plan until it was too late. I want to be proven wrong but I just don't think Goody is up to it.
