Pickering on SEN was pretty scathing about the talent cards Teague has been dealt.

Their over rated Weitering led defence continues to leak despite the addition of high priced recruits.

Thought Cripps and Walsh were just ok. The latter needs composure with his disposal.

A team that relies on heroic old stagers like Murphy and Betts is not going anywhere.
Carlton’s disgracefully bad Bolton teams still managed to make themselves a bit of a pest defensively at times.

I don’t think you need a side loaded with stars to make things difficult for the opposition.

Teague is coaching a team to not put in the required efforts defensively.

Aye. It does not help that your mids don't chase and that some in your backline like Weitering and the imports are on the bathwater.

Weitering is fine. Least of our worries.

Midfielders don’t run two ways and don’t win the footy enough. Forwards don’t apply enough pressure and some of our other defenders are just useless at defending.

But Teague is absolutely responsible for implementing a garbage gameplan that revolves around quick moving footy going forward. The club doesn’t have the foot skills to execute properly nor does it have the pressure players needed to win the ball back. Things are dire from constant turnovers leading to players being out of position and unable to stop the opposition spreading.

Not one other team has had them.
Would challenge anyone to find a club who has had as many of their promising players get seriously injured in previous times. I’m not talking about pissy little injuries either.

It’s not the reason the club is where they are but it hurts as a supporter and absolutely hurts the club.

According to Carlton supporters, they've had more injuries this year than West Coast lmao

Was surprised just how poor Carlton were going inside 50 without McKay. A lot of intercept marks to us to guys like Edwards and Rotham who aren't the usual suspects.

Strange game. O'Neill kicked the last goal of the game at the 13 minute mark of the last quarter. Naitanui, Saad and P Cripps all kicked behinds after that. There was a solid 10-15 minutes of play and the game was still up for grabs but Carlton just didn't threaten and the body language of the players reflected a 10 goal margin.

We had injuries to promising players before Gold Coast were even around.

Waite’s Carlton career was ruined by injuries. Kreuzer did his knee shortly after looking like a dominant youngster. Before that Kouta was cut down by knee issues.

That's nice, but it still doesn't change the fact Gold Coast have also had a number of their young players cut down by injuries.

Rowell, O'Meara, Day etc

Carlton supporters are so focussed on their own club, they don't understand that all clubs get injuries, and many clubs have had a worse injury run for longer than Carlton have.

Watson and Lyon were talking on SEN this morning about how good Jamie Elliott could have been if his career hadn't been impacted by injury as much as it had - reckon he's missed as many games as he's played.

Doggies won a flag in 2016 having had a worse injury run that year than I've ever seen at Carlton.
