Still a fantastic season when you put it that way and it’s hard to forget that Freo were effectively the barometer for the first half of the season.1st off congratulations to the magpies tonight. Played 4 solid quarters of footy.
Freo were always constantly down by 4-6 goals all night. Could of been worse and lose by 60 points or more.
Only lost 11.13.79 to 9.5.59.
Sad for Mundy to retire.
Freos season is done but I am happy with freos season. 15 wins, 1 draw, 6 losses in the regular season.
Then got a finals win.
Staggering the shift between Buckley and Macrae. Staggering. The list was there, Buckley had clearly not been able to motivate the players or get the style right.Isn't that literally the coaches job? Install belief in the team?
This new mantra has certainly worked better than Nathan "not meeting your KPI's" Buckley...
The point was to not have a defeatist attitude going into next week, some would say that worked....
I was was I?You were squibbing about a player or two being 29 rather than 30, and got your knickers in a knot about your age profile.
Talk about sensitive.
I think I made a point that you’re a bit precious about your little footy club. It’s just a chat forum, relax.
We're going to smack the living suitcase out of a fraudulent Collingwood outfit.
Prepare for a straight sets execution you edentulous pack of inbreds.
I look forward to Caleb Serong feasting on the Collingwood faithful's collective heart, Khalesi style, mid way through the final quarter.
I think Macrae and his coaching team have a game style that the players actually enjoy playing. Why would you want to turn up each week playing slow, keepings off footy and not really trying to attack and win games? Players have quickly embraced a new style. Pies fans have been wanting this which was a reason we wanted a change.Staggering the shift between Buckley and Macrae. Staggering.

If you lift up that slab of concrete, it takes you to platform 9 and 3/4As a neutral in terms of Collingwood I've never really cared for the pies, but they are playing 1 hell of a game style that has to be respected. I don't think I've seen a team run as hard going forward and as hard going back as they did against Geelong. That game was all on Collingwood's terms. If it gets played like that again I'd take the pies to come out on top.
Can't be overstated how much the players are playing for Macrae and the belief they have in him and themselves. I almost feel like they deserve it already, but they have to go out and do it obviously. But they are playing a brand I don't think many teams could replicate.
Side note, when I was about 10 my parents took us over to Victoria to watch the crows play Collingwood at Victoria Park and we were sitting on a slab of concrete and these bogan pies fans come up and say "That's where we sit" . It was a slab of concrete. We just looked at them like ooooohkay lol. It was the match mick mcguane couldn't hit the side of his boot with the footy cos he had it jabbed up lol.
