Agree, our team transition into defensive structure after we give up the ball is poor. The tigers attack in numbers when they have the ball but are the best in transition hence why they’re probably going to go back to back.I feel we really need to work on our transition defence. We are always extremely vulnerable when we turn the ball over.
Dodo strikes again. Looks like we'll be coupling him with a third rounder to secure Shiel.Looks like Ricky Dyson is returning to the club as VFL staff. Assume it's in a coaching role.

“I’m going to be looking after the team’s defence and also going to be spending some time with the key-position players – not only the defenders, but also the forwards as well – and hopefully get some growth out of them,” he said.
“Mark Harvey’s still going to be working with the defenders, but I’ll be looking at the team’s overall defence starting from the full-forward line right through to the last line of our defence.”
Mind you. I think that is something we have struggled at. I recall ant555 in particular bringing it up. If he can get it working I think it will be a big helphttp://www.essendonfc.com.au/news/2018-11-16/ruttens-fresh-challenge
Looks like Neeld's role has been replaced with a 'team defence/KPP' coach.
Harvey still the line coach for defence, this guy is looking at the whole team's defending.
