Yeah. The 3rd or 4th batch in that time.Blooded lots of kids, found out lots of kids can play..........
Few of my North mates think I’m a bit too optimistic sometimes, but when when times are dark, sometimes all you can do is try & find the light.Blooded lots of kids, found out lots of kids can play, got rid of Brad, had some good proper hard nosed wins.
Could we worse. Could have been Brad still here.
Top six you’d cut?All season ive been pretty bullish that we could contend for finals with the list that we have. I WAS WRONG. Its time to cut, and cut deep, there is far too many plodders that play one good game in six. Have at it Rhyce.
There are rumors of a fire sale.All season ive been pretty bullish that we could contend for finals with the list that we have. I WAS WRONG. Its time to cut, and cut deep, there is far too many plodders that play one good game in six. Have at it Rhyce.
Actually, the main focus has been survival. They've achieved that, we're on a steady financial footing.Yeah. The 3rd or 4th batch in that time.
We haven't had an admin that was driven enough to succeed. We have lacked the single mindedness required to get the job done. Their main concern has been keeping us "engaged".
Winners get things done and everything else is bulls**t.
I'd put up with another year of spin & bulls**t!There are rumors of a fire sale.
If Buckley, Archer & Rawlings are fair dinkum, then the purge has only begun.
We need to instill ruthlessness again at North Melbourne.
Another year of the same generic spin & bulls**t, and that might be the end of me.
Thats all well and good, but, if we dont have the cattle on the ground on game day it will amount to nothing. Do i think we need to do a Carlton and have rebuild after rebuild ? No, it clearly does not work, just ask Melbourne. My problem is that when you kick one goal for the day it becomes very hard to attract good players to a small Melbourne club, so we are going to have to do it the hard way, go to the draft and trade for players that FILL A NEED. Otherwise we will just be doing this ......Yep, agreed, and that recognition has been made (from what I understand).
The ruthlessness is already on display - the sacking of the ex Port development bloke, Brad, nailing Brady while at West Coast.
And stay away from anyone compared to Chris Judd. Atley has basically never played in the centre and LDU is about 3 yards off Judd.Hit the top end of the draft and stop playing plodders, only then we might see some changes.
Targeting free agents hasn’t work, and having one pick a year inside the top 20 hasn’t worked.
We’ve been flogging the same horse for the past 15 years which has resulted in an extended run of mediocrity.
As I've said a few times, from what people better placed than me have said, there is a recognition at the very top that a new ruthlessness is required, that 20 years without a flag is too long, that we have got to take a new success focused approach.Are you going to continue with the "allusion" or do you have information?
