Square Peg, Round Hole - Exactly why we need Neeld!!!!

Recommended Posts

You really think Sanderson would have got wins this year with this unfit list??

I am not having a go at Sanderson but i don't think it would make a difference.

We need to trade big time at years end.

I am more worried about Trengove than Neeld.

Yes.

'Trading big time' is not on for any team - if your players are good you don't trade them - if they are bad you can't trade them - if you trade picks for supposedly good players, you have to wonder why the other team wants to let the players go for a gamble of a pick. At best you might exchange one or two players/picks. That's why getting players to suit Neeld's game plan doesn't work - it's also why coaches have to get the best from whatever playing list they have. Reality!

Let Trengove play natural footy - who's Neeld?

I just cannot agree with this.

If our list was fit (AFL standard) fit the MFC would have won today. The effort was there.

That is not the fault of Neeld. If in 12 months the list is still under performing then we have a problem with a coach.

But right now it is the list and fitness.

P. S. Ross Lyon did well today

You did not address the 'trading big time' issue wyl, but I am happy to 'agree to disagree' on Neeld.

The MFC will be trading big time at seasons end. 7-8 players is what i heard whispered.

That is all i know. The club's survival is paramount in the next 2-3 trade periods, make no mistake Hardnut.

7-8 players would not be unusual, especially in a super-draft, but I hope MFC show more nous than usual as the 'trading' will most likely involve our picks for other club's players, and we don't have a good record of getting value for pick! Personally, I would rather we did our homework and used our picks wisely, before taking someone else's cast-offs!

No arguement there. The only way this club will survive is through aggressive trading.

The crowds will not pay to watch rubbish.

I had my first doubts about Neeld tonight. Often the only time we made dangerous forward 50 attacks was when we were FORCED to use the corridor because Carlton were double teaming our pockets presuming we would come in along the boundry. SDecondly defensive gameplan didnt really work in the last quarter...

    FEARS by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne’s worst fears about the absence of Max Gawn were realised when it received a shellacking from Fremantle’s ruckmen Sean Darcy and Luke Jackson who dominated the hit out tally in their game at Optus Stadium on Sunday by a massive 47 to 19. As a result, the 50-point deficit at the end of the game proved to be a loss that was long foreseen that was two years in the making and demonstrated a complete lack of hindsight and planning from the club. To add insult to injury, Jackson was a D

    RAIN CHECK by Whispering Jack

    The Frankston Dolphins broke a run of six straight losses against their neighbours, the Casey Demons and kept their hopes for a long-awaited return to the VFL finals alive with a 27 point victory over at Kinetic Stadium. Casey was welcomed to the Peninsula by grey skies, heavy rain and angry seas with threatening white-capped waves whipped up by gale force winds. After a slow start in the opening term when they failed to take advantage of the breeze, it appeared that the Demons had decided

    EARLY BIRDS by KC from Casey

    Wet, slippery conditions and threatening rainfalls greeted the VFL Bombers at the end of their long journey southeast of the big city on Sunday. The threatening weather combined with the fact that neither side had realistic prospects of advancing to action in September, meant that spectators gathered at a cold Casey Fields weren’t expecting a classic exhibition of football. Nor did they get one. Instead they were presented with a dour struggle that never reached great heights. It was a
