    Smarty? Way to ingratiate yourself. 😂

    I’m not stoopid enough to share anything I hear as a consequence of much time spent involved in various ways with the MFC. Suffice to say, folks ought not assume they know the whys and wherefores of any situation. 

    How positively convenient for you!

    Clearly not, PF. Most do, but not all. There’s still that little core group of stubborn closed-minded folks who are holding out. They don’t think it’s an MFC [censored]-up, they know it, and there’s no telling them otherwise. 

    So let us in to the secret and I will shut up

    I wish I didn’t.

    It’s in the past anyways, where it belongs. But it’s super annoying to be in the Non-MFC thread and having to read the same old uninformed BS about ex-Dees and how our club failed them. It’s annoying in any thread, but particularly in this one. I’m really unwell and should’ve known better than to even go on DL let alone snap back at yet another clueless post about the whole Grundy affair. My bad. 🙄 

    *retreats back to sick bed and hopes getting worked up over this doesn’t prove a setback in the Need To Be Well Enough By Sunday In Order To Attend Our Match campaign*

    🤒

    So smarty   inform us all !😫

    the problem with gawn and grundy being in the same side is that meant the game's greatest ruckman was half the player he normally is

    why would you waste a true great of the game by having him away from his prime position during his peak period as a player?

    So why start the process,why grab Grundy when we allegedly didnt need him It looks like a f&%$ up to me

    I just want to see something rather than nothing...this whole "trust the system" line is tired and guess what, it didn't work!  Please think on your feet and do something different because the results are saying we need to do something different, even if just to get the players a bit more excited about life and footy, they just all look flat and tired...like this "system" perhaps.

    Mix it up coaches!!!

    But Goody has allegedly delivered over the past 6 years so with  the current challenges can he do it some more

    He is defence first coach and cannot change as the cattle are not right. It  worked for a while but will always be tested by the offensive style of teams like Sydney and CW.

    You can't seriously be pointing to the Carlton game to say our game plan is good? You'd have to be trolling.

    Carlton have lost 4 of the last 6 because the comp has worked out that you stop Cripps and Walsh there is no Carlton.  Not Melbourne though. They let C&W run riot despite the week before Collingwood showing the blueprint on how to stop them.

    6 goals to nil to start the game.

    The first quarters are killing us because we are the easiest side to coach against. You will never be surprised with Goodwin on game day.

    And our midfield is a shadow of its former self.  Most couldn't hit a barn from 20m away

    Then our main fwds have started with the stellar numbers in the first half the last two weeks. Collectively they have had something like 6 possessions total in two weeks in the first half.

    Yep our game plan is going gangbusters.

    Couldn't agree more

    People easily forget WCE have some very handy players. Barass, McGovern, Waterman, Darling, Kelly. 

    Reid is incredible

    We should be thankful Yeo wasn't playing either. 

    Competition is incredibly even. WCE were due, we have to pivot from this switching, keepings off, bruise-free style of play now as it is enabling opposition teams to get a jump on us

    Saints must be due

    In JVR, Langdon (provided he is over his jet lag)

    Out Lever, BBB

    Think we need another tall....

    We have needed another tall for years the club seems incapable of finding one   Grundy should have worked for us 

    Egos and low IQs got in the way If Schacke Fullerton Jefferson and Tomlinson are no good get them out and start  again 

    Verrel is not the answer or he would be played its a complete mess

    There you go, INS - McAdam, Salem and BBB

    Pretty happy with that. 

    Salem better have a blinder thinking he is past it

    This game will tell he can't hide and no excuses he is picked he is ready

    Mistake in my view. Hope I'm wrong

    We have been too easy on him on DL consider how we brutally go after other players  I reckon. He hasn’t really played a good game since the 21 GF. Missed at least half the games due to injury as well. 

    Will be an unpopular view but will still have some trade currency if we could find someone to take his contract. If we pay some of his salary, might be able to snare a late round 1 pick. 
     

    He is way past his best 

    No way is he auto selection in my view

    Assuming he’s available, do we put the Salem to midfield experiment back on the agenda?

    I think Trac needs to spend far more time up forward as he’s a natural forward who will get plenty of looks each game. But we’re robbing Peter to pay Paul.

    Salem would get smashed in the midfield better back in my view 

    Shadow of himself before injury must prove at Casey

    His name has popped up on here before, but Redlegs ruckman Harry Boyd is currently leading the SANFL for clearances by some margin, clocking up 48 after five matches - with the next closest player on 38. He's also smashing the hit-out count, with 208 compared to 166 for second place. Top 10 for i50 and averaging nearly 5 tackles per game. 

    A bit on the short side at 198 (weight . . .  similar to Kieren Briggs), but came through as a defender and can take a grab. He's now won a couple Norwood best & fairests under Jade Rawlings. Has an off-field manner that reminds me a bit of May - comes across as a good egg. Age 26. Seems our type of ruck, but not fitting with our list approach perhaps.  

    Love Briggs Is Boyd available?

    From the parts of last nights game I did see, I saw two teams move the ball very quickly and Collingwood kick to an open fwd line and back their players in 1 on 1. We always seem very congested, I’d like to see that change tonight. 

    we cause the congestion so unfortunately you will see it again tonight
