All these “myths” yet we’re still in the 8.

Can’t wait until we start to get some things right!

Yes, perhaps the thread title should be “Maths”

1. We’re still in the 8
2. 8 of our best 22 were missing
3. 3 of our leaders played injured on the weekend
4. 11 wins despite all the bellyaches
5. 2 losses caused by umpiring
6. 80,000 members
7. 7th on the ladder
8. Recruits have been great

Ifs, when’s, but’s, you are a f***wit. Blaming umpires really is the last act of the desperate. Richmond and Collingwood have had worse injuries than we have but have held it together. Every team plays injured players. It’s ******** like you that are the reason this club is in the shit.

Ha ha ha rightio Joffa :lol:

It’s supporters like me that keeps the club alive. If it wasn’t for “us”, the club would have died with the saga. We got through that devastating period with a strong supporter base, and a recovering financial position. I take pride in that.

I think the club is on the up. If you take 2016 as the lowest ebb, then what has followed is steady improvement. Most other clubs would probably languish for years after such a trauma. Carlton has struggled since the early 2000’s since its salary cap sanctions and fines.

We’ve hit a few pot holes and speed humps along the way. But we remain on the track. The list is good, provided they’re in good shape...which they haven’t been. Call it a pot hole. Get a decent fitness regime, and things will change pretty quickly. New assistants will help with strategic stuff. The club isn’t standing still. It is continuing to seek ways to improve.

You can’t DENY THAT.

I can deny all of it you snivelling fool because it’s been the same for almost 2 decades, “when we change this, when we change that, when the f****** unicorns arrive”. Good teams, and teams on the up don’t have 21 straight goals kicked on them u der any circumstance. That’s about pride, leadership and ambition. Something this club hasn’t known anything about for bear on 20 years.

Maths.

You only have to look into the EFC Hall of Shame thread to see all the maths in there. You can even look at the maths in the Clanger Hangar thread while you’re at it. It all equates to mediocrity. It’s an actual atrocity.

The ONLY thing that has improved is the membership numbers. f*** knows how. But that is it. All other “improvements” have been inventions of various people’s imaginations.
Unfortunately, you can't drown a witch!
