Mine would have been shorter... However with very similar undertones.

Worsfold isn't to blame for dumb ass decisions by the players.
Down on confidence.
Confident they can turn it around.
Daniher a Liability atm.
Needs to Stand up and be counted.
Midfield getting smashed.
Dropped marks.
Pissweak Leadership by Hepps...
Get some mongrel into them...

Not sure how long you have been watching footy and in particular Essendon. I have been going strong since 1968. In all my time I have not seen such a talented list (with some obvious exceptions) go so far backwards in the space of 6 months. Sorry, but this is a team that has lost all confidence in what it does and the blame must sit squarely with the head coach

Lets see what happens in say the next 6 weeks.
I still Believe in Worsfold.
Have a look at Richmond.
So many calling sack the coach.
Now look...

What, are you suggesting we have to wait as long as it took Hardwick to work it out? Eight years?

I just cant believe our disposal today. A lot of the shonky kicks and handballs were not under pressure. Its like the entire team cant do the basics of football. The most frustrating thing is guys like McGrath seem to have gone backwards. His disposal was pretty good last year.

Training must and should be for this group be entirely made up of kicking and handball skills.

One player we really miss is James Kelly.

As for game plan. Just scrap what we are trying to do this year and revert to all out attack. We were better last year and at least good to watch.

Hawthorn (MCG)
Carlton (MCG)
Geelong (Etihad)
GWS (Away)
Richmond (MCG)
Brisbane (Away)

Not optimistic at all with any of these.

Geez if we lose to Carlton then we will officially be a club in crisis....but then that has been the case for years now. I can’t see us winning any of the other games. So we will likely be 3-9 after 12 rounds. And that’s being optimistic.

Is Worsfold the man? Yes or No?

For mine it remains a firm NO


I honestly think he has lost the players....that’s it, time to move on. Many would say that is premature. I think it’s about 1 year too late.

Laugh your heads off but I reckon we ought to think about Luke Hodge. We've seen what its like when the players don't play for the coach and this is one such occasion. They could hardly have played worse if they tried to. Time for a big clean out of coaches.

Woosha thanks for bringing us to the other side of the supplements saga you did a great job but; now, its time for you to hand the reigns to someone else to take over and bring this team back together and playing good footy.

Woosha thank you for mending the broken hearts and pouring soothing balm on the weary brows. Now we gotta get someone who can help us win a game. Dont worry, you'll get life membership for your efforts and your picture up in the hall of fame. Arrivaderci. =D> =D> =D> =D> =D>

Any-one could have been successful with a team that was basically a West Australian state team with a few decent interstaters as well as were the eagles....

And throw in open slather on steroids and other performance enhancing and party drugs (All with the AFL`s blessing, the new boys had to be succsessful hey gil or was it demetrio?) and a drovers dog could have won a flag or two with them.

Now with an AVERAGE mob of fumblers, and players who can`t kick accurately (and hopefully NO performance enhancing drugs) [-X his coaching prowess is truly put to the test, and so far it`s a fail.

Get Goddard in the box. At least he f****** cared about our club and how it performed. He has a clue how the game should be played, and what is required professionally in preparation and in effort.

What we witnessed last Sunday was not a TEAM. It was a bunch of blokes meandering around in red & black jumpers just passing time for a couple of hours.

I'll give him until Anzac Day. 6 games.

If less than 2 wins - gone

I fear we will be 0-6
