  1. Would've been a great fit for us... Once again Saints on the ball and making all the moves. Well and truly passed us imo.
  2. Well technically that's still good grounds to blame the club.
  3. Phillips is absolute rubbish. Why aren't we focussing on what we actually need instead of 'Break glass in case of Emergency' players. The only Phillips we should be targeting atm is Tom... FMD
  4. My concern is that Greg Stafford seems to be playing musical chairs with his role at the club. First came in as Ruck Coach, then migrated to Goal Kicking Coach, now he’s our Forward Coach. I guess if we throw enough chit at the wall eventually it’ll stick?
  5. All you can do is laugh.. 1. How good is free agency... & 2. We're far from a destination club once again.
  6. Can someone please explain to me how the heck we are struggling to fit Ben Brown within our salary cap? We must have a side full of superstars..... fmd
  7. I agree with @Demon3 .. I reckon the saints have a very complete list.. can’t think of many, if any holes. Considering how many players they recruited last year, the “taking a while to gel” nonsense that gets overused here didn’t seem to affect them. They will consolidate this off season & push for a top 4 finish next year. Our trading has been very reactive of late & we seem to be behind the pace of most clubs.
  8. A 66 point defeat in a prelim followed by 2 substandard seasons says otherwise. Not sure what’s in the water from where you’re from but we’re MILES off winning a flag.
  9. Yep.. When you watch sides like tonight play you wonder whether we will ever have what it takes to win a flag..
  10. Yze becoming our head coach half way through the season.
  11. Is it just me or does Alastair Lynch gasp for air between sentences way too much? Sounds like he’s about to cark it.
  12. Well considering our 4 year plan from 2020 - 2023 was to make finals every year & win at least one gf. And considering we have pretty much had a healthy list to choose from all year, it puts Goodwin squarely in the fail camp currently. Gary Pert commented at the start of 2020: “We’re not here to make up the numbers. We’re not here to finish in the middle of the pack”. Unfortunately that’s exactly the position we’re in. And if you’re giving that a pass, you’re adding to our vicious cycle of mediocrity. https://www.theage.com.au/sport/afl/demons-design-plan-to-make-final
  13. The dees would’ve breathed a massive sigh of relief
  14. Melbourne are the only side that fall to pieces when they have a spot in the finals on the line. Saints, who many saw as a bottom 6 side at the start of the year, dug in & demolished the previous gf runner up to sow up their spot. We absolutely [censored] the bed in our 2 games, similar to what happened a few years ago against the pies in the last round. The Dogs will put it all on the line & they will get it done. This week has been a media wanc fest over us keeping the fire burning, having it all to play for blah blah blah. The plot should’ve been focused on how we blew it & the
  15. Opposition who don’t bring intensity & effort suit our style of play.
  16. He plays like a millionaire. Doesn’t do the basics anymore which is what he did so well in his debut season. Has put his feet up after signing a contract.
  17. I dunno.. I reckon he was just annoyed that he was asked considering i think he indirectly answered 'yes he will be already' in his other responses.
  18. It was a very simplified reason as to why we're not winning games of footy. It runs much deeper than just having lapses of concentration for a quarter. Goodwin has been saying for almost 2 seasons now in his post match conferences that we're working hard to get that right. The next questions should've been, "why in 2 years have the club not rectified that problem"? and "what are they doing to rectify it"? On face value it sounds like Goody will be head coach next year. Unless we finish the season on a high in our next 2 matches, it will be very hard to build support and optimism heading
  19. I'm going to assume you are taking the [censored]!!!!! The bloke is so far past it.. we might as well get Mick Malthouse if you think John Worsfold has it in him.
  20. As Gary Lyon said last night.. We already know that we need to be a ruthless footy side. We've known over the last 2 years of poor performances. The question is, why are we not one and what are we doing to become one? Not.. "We need to become".. this is frustrating and inexcusable to be hearing this after 2 seasons of underperforming. If Goody is still saying it.. then he clearly IS NOT the bloke to do it.
  21. Agreed. We have been teetering on the edge over the last month and these last 2 games have us well and truly over the edge and plummeting down the cliff. It's impossible to overlook with any sense of optimism. If serious change is not made this off-season, supporters and fans will follow suit.
  22. The match tonight will go one of the 2 following ways: 1. We will fall over the line in a close, ugly and uninspiring match. The players will act as if they've just won the flag and the club will tell us how we're building momentum. The supporters will roll their eyes, and go to bed with an empty and soulless feeling. 2. We will lose in a close, ugly and uninspiring match. The players will seem disappointed but ensure that we've improved in certain areas and reiterate that if we didn't have a mental lapse for those 15 minutes we would have won. Goodwin will tell us that while he's
  23. We veered off what I was initially trying to say. When these players have down days (and trust me, they certainly have OFF games), the fringe players lift and play their part to get their team across the line. We are not a 22 man squad. We are a lets pray Trac, Clarry and Gawny are ON today otherwise we're screwed
