Despite our likely surge which will fall short

If any idiot, including the coach, says that we are finals bound... get f*****

Absolute embarrassment in the end. If they had kicked straight, it could have been 80 points or more.

Our Back 6, allegedly one of the best in the league, wasn't.
Hurley was smashed
Their big guys led and could take a pack mark - our couldn't
No answer for their crumbers ... but we didn't have crumbers at the front or the back of pack marks
We kept booting into the FB and couldn't get it out, turning over in the back 50 or where we started... why???
Our coach couldn't adapt after 1/4 time ... smashed on the whiteboard and on the ground

i feel bad for brown when i say this because he has actually kicked goals when he plays. but they need to get game time into players who can potentially be part of the future like francis.

i think worsfold has to go. i dont think he has the skill to coach in this more advanced era of football. A lot has changed since around 2006.

Typical dumb shit show that we come to expect from our club. Can’t believe (maybe I should) the stupid decision making process we exert.

When does one wake the f*** up to the fact you’re playing into the hands of a serial interceptor in McGovern? Change it up and start kicking the ball into the forward 50 like Port did some weeks ago ffs.

Everyone up to mark / spoil, but leave their crumber free to run into an open goal. That’s childish stuff. FMD.

Bellchambers rag dolled by Hickey on I don’t know how many occasions. Soft as f***.

Pathetic.

Kicking backwards, sidewards, backwards, then to a contest, and f*** it up. Rinse and repeat.

Yes and how can a club hang onto a coach who has absolutely no answers for the above. Whenever we come up against a half-decent side, everyone here can write the script, week after week.

Oh come on - we got close in the final quarter ... they only led by 1 goal and 19 behinds at one point.

Well at least your Irish other half says it with an Irish brogue, which I am informed is quite alluring to many.

Alluring? Not quite my friend...just reinforces the fact that somone that has no idea when it comes to AFL has more footy smarts than our coach.... It's rather depressing....

I don't feel so bad after this loss. I really don't think we played that bad and we kicked very accurately, and I believe that West Coast played extremely well - they just couldn't convert. I didn't notice players giving up, they kept up the chase, they just couldn't keep up with opposition clean ball use and superior running to the right positions.
I felt the backline tried really hard and were under siege from the 2nd quarter onwards, ball coming in way too fast and if they did spoil, WC had smalls around the ball to have a shot. We just couldn't keep up. Our midfield pressure let the ball come through there far too easily.

West Coast showed how large the gap is between the top teams and the rest of us and agree they should have demolished us on the scoreboard by a further 10 goals.
We played exactly to the level our ladder position suggests. We tried hard, just not anywhere near as good as the best when they're firing.

Which quite simply means Our Best Wasn’t Good Enough!

A More complex analysis on our performance says we are so deficient in many ways,it isn’t funny!

Sure the Eagles were too good(and it ain’t easy for me to say that about them at any time,the bastards),but we simply fell short in many ways,it was funny.

Some of our disposals were too cute by half and handed the ball needlessly to the opposition.That’s simply asking for trouble and makes the job of knocking off the Reigning ng Premiers that much harder than it already is!

:roll: #-o [-X

So,did any of you guys make the trip over and are staying in town for a few days?

Exposed again by a competent team that has done its homework.

No plan B and plan A is as predictable as Pauline Hanson.

Just a fkng disgusting effort, as stated if they`d kicked straight it would have been even more embarrassing.

Just glad the Davey Warner show was on the other channel. :x

Wet Toast kept us in the game by their inaccurate kicking. They should have beaten us by ten goals plus. The score line flattered us.

It was obvious late in the first quarter they were going to run right over us. Many of our players gave them far too much space. Our skills were on the night disgraceful, we are rubbish. Very few of our players were not beaten on the night. Why was Fantasia looking proppy and pulled up sore. Do we never learn about this player and his injuries? This guy is Gumbleton mark 5.

Hurley was outplayed last night and his attitude was underwhelming, even Hooker was out of sorts. Zacka was his usual self, did just enough which was not enough. There were probably three or four players who really tried and played well. The rest were ordinary at best. No excuses but the confusing umpiring didn't help anyone.

We were completely outclassed, outcoached and outplayed AGAIN.
Nothing usually happens until something happens.
