  1. Can run all day, neat skills and good footy brain that understands how to implement a game plan and adapt where required. We have many players that have some of these qualities, but sadly lacking in others...
  2. Looking at the Higgins goal that won them the game. Dumont managed to push Harmes aside, find a ground ball get while Spargo falls over, gets tackled by Salem who pins his free arm. Meanwhile 4 of our players immediately surround Dumont leaving space outside for Wood and then Higgins to receive the handball over the top after Dumont somehow frees his arm. Higgins evades Jones and Hibberd while Frosty is haunched over presumably with cramp and snaps on his left. So frustrating we didn't kill that ball and then got sucked into the contest yet again. I could review individual conte
  3. In that case 'great taggers game' is it for me A captains job is far more than that
  4. We seemed to find new ways to turn it over coming out of defensive 50 in the last for a while there. Amazing Glad the year is over
  5. As with any organisation or group with a collection of people, there will always be different characters. This includes people with different ambition and attitudes. Those that are driven and won't stop at anything to reach their lofty goals and those that are more lazy and aim for the low hanging fruit. Group activities tends to work better the more driven people there are. Particularly with a strong core that lead the way and know what they are doing. They can drag along the less motivated and give them tasks that work to their strengths and contribute to the group effort. When things a
  6. Yes BBO you're right, but team mates need to be on the same page Right now they're not even in the same postcode
  7. Watching this again, I actually think Jones gives Fritsch a spray too. See how after he kicks to ANB that Bayley looks off screen towards where Jones is standing and starts to hold out his hands, but then switches attention to Oliver (who clearly gives an even bigger spray) as Jones walks away...
  8. Checked out and going through the motions No confidence and second guessing almost everything they do No structure and poor ability to adapt on the go
  9. These are full-time professional footballers Playing like they turn up on the weekend for local footy league. What do they do during the week??
  10. Inside 50 entries tonight should either be pinpoint passes onto leads or low balls out in front for the smalls to run onto Watch us bomb it in high every time...
  11. So true! Simplified, this is a key issue (personnel aside). Plan A sucks and Plan B non-existent Also a big concern that Goodwin said this in the presser For Goodwin, the way to fix the problem is by training. "Keep working hard, keep designing drills that increase our ability to score from turnover, which will hopefully also help us defend in the right manner," Goodwin said. 'hopefully' help us defend...dear lord. No wonder our midfield are downfield skiiers
  12. Interesting reading about Brisbane and their strategy https://www.afl.com.au/news/2019-07-16/science-and-luck-how-the-lions-list-has-come-together Brisbane's rise up the ladder has been borne from a mix of factors: a coach and football manager setting the plan and driving it; a development program that is well resourced and run; a productive Academy; a playing group that is young, close and committed and a recruiting team that has followed a clear strategy. Aside from a 'productive Academy' one could argue that we had also put in place a similar plan. The problem being now that
  13. Forgetting stats for a second He seems to be a reactive player (rather than pro-active) and consistently trails behind his opponent, meaning that when he does need to 'go' he's not able to impact the contest. Is it his tank? Or just the way he naturally has played the game? Mind you, this is a problem that many of our players seem to have...
  14. Having seen the video of Gaff kicking for goal with the Brayshaw sledge, I wonder if it would be possible for our players to spend a session each week at the 'G goal kicking with 'applied pressure'. Perhaps even a competition of sorts with some kind of punishment and reward. Otherwise anyone can slot shots at training at the local oval with no consequences...then come gametime the perceived pressure means everything goes to water
  15. Is everyone on the same page at the club? I'm questioning whether there is clarity in gameplan, sync with player development, recruitment and training strategies to properly implement and learn the plan to win.
