    Autopsy Rd 11 Another Blues fade out, another loss

    It's just a game but I invest way too much of my life toward it, for what's been a lack of any sustained enjoyment from it for far too long. It's about as productive as watching an average movie on repeat because there's one or two good scenes. Love Carlton but fu** I need to be done with...

    Game Day Rnd 11 - Carlton v Sydney Game Day Discussion

    fu** this is depressing. We've put up with years of belting for the sake of a bottom 6 list.

    Preview Rnd 11 - Carlton v Sydney Sunday May 30th 3.20PM @ SCG

    I would still rate Murph's first half as better than Gibbons, albeit not significantly, but his third clearly seperated them for the game.

    If Williams predominately remains at HB, are people content with the salary he is reportedly on? If he replicates his game yesterday more often than not, I don't think I would mind. He and Saad are serious quality rebounding players working in tandem. I think he'll prove his value in finals as...

    Game Day Rnd 10 - Carlton v Hawthorn Game Day Discussion

    I love how we will switch, stop and prop, look to play on quickly, all for the same end result of just bombing it in for 1on1.

    37 seconds left after Betts kicked his goal. FMD

    Your points would be my concern. But so far as team dynamics he's pretty good at marking overhead and working his opponent under the ball. Our tendency to bomb it long on the rebound may suit him one out - we don't have a medium forward capable of out marking their opponents. If his ability...

    Carlton in the Media (articles, podcasts etc) - Part 3

    "They're sitting bottom 6, Teague clearly needs better support around him, and we're hearing reports of other clubs already approaching quality options like Leppitsch. So while Carlton sit on their hands doing nothing, other clubs are getting on the front foot and looking at ways to improve...

    Autopsy Round 9 vs Dees. Blues never in it and Cunners does a knee

    I think it's clear most didn't realise it was his first goal. However it is disappointing in any case Cripps didn't make an effort to run over and congratulate him. He's a young player that kicked a nice goal and you'd expect the captain to lead the way in acknowledging it. Watch when a...

    Autopsy Round 9 vs Dees. Blues never in it and Cunners does a knee

    Efforts like this are one of our biggest issues. If Setterfield got out of a jog and showed desperation, every chance he could have spoiled this across the line. Instead of a spark to lift the team, it's an i50 that puts us another down.

    The Chicken Little thread 2021 edition

    I hadn't until today but we'll be 3 games & percentage behind 7th position at the end of this round. The 8th team being Richmond... I wouldn't rule GWS out but otherwise the gap between the top 8 and rest after just 9 rounds is pretty astounding. Honestly thought we could have caused an upset...

    None of his games have been that good. Well beaten by his man every time.

    Dees have barely got out of second gear. We're as far from a finals team as we have been throughout the whole rebuild.

    Could have easily spoiled, didn't give a sh*t.

    Why wouldn't you play for a free if you're a small forward. Drop the knees and it's either a high tackle, or ball up.
