Hurts two bad. Putrid performance for what could've started a genuine dynasty at the Gabba. I feel sorry for those who attended. Spare a thought for people like me who with with a long time mate who is a big pies supporter and a serial **** stirrer.
You have my deepest sympathy mate :)

Lucky you have beer! :p

Man, the attack on Nick Robbo by some posters is ****ing disgusting. He has actually been one of our better players tonight - has impacted most contests and has been using the wall well at 86%. A lot of players have been putrid tonight but he is not one of them.
He wasn't horrendous today I agree. But he's not up to it anyway.

Everything thing that could have gone wrong, did. Cant summarise how disgraceful our application to the defensive side of our game has been. Something has gone seriously wrong psychologically within the group. Beams just swanning about. All of a sudden things look absolutley grim, we could be on the verge of another disarster stretch.

Goldcoast will smash us next week, 10 goals plus.

So sick of watching our players stand around not pressuring their opponents.

Anyone who can find anything to be upbeat about right now is kidding themselves.

Quite a few
Don’t know if I was looking through Lions coloured glasses but some atrocious umpiring decisions. Don’t want to single anyone out, but McStay is really frustrating me.

Was trying to be neutral (contempt for the pies took over) and there were some questionable moments. Not like it wouldn't have mattered anyway.

Also WTF was up with that bloody ump (22 or 26) deciding to play for the pies briefly in the 1st?

The coaching staff should get that tape of the Collingwood players having a laugh after that last goal and keep showing it to the players every time before they run out.

We need more pace in the team whatever anyone else thinks . Taylor and Cutler have to come in. Plenty of time to reset before the next game.

We were shown up tonight
Problem is Taylor isn't fast he just runs in circles

Who is paying your remedial English education bill? Because whoever it is is getting ripped off.

Well obviously we need some changes.

People seem to prefer slugs going around instead of someone who at least has some pace ans the potential to beak lines
Yeah, I agree - happy to talk constructively about personnel, rather than read people spew forth vitriol over tonight's effort is the only thing I'll say.

We all watched the game, we know it was a train wreck - the trick is to find solutions, not castrate imo.

A forward line of Elliot, Stephenson, Degooey etc and we go in with Walker, Gardiner, Andrews, Hodge etc?

The players will cop their rightful whack, but team selection wasn’t astute (putting it nicely)

What the team is missing is a line breaker....Once the ball gets turned over we lack the speed to get back...exposed so many times this week.

Agree.

Every time I put up an option the same people keep saying you can't play them for this or that reason.

Football teams have always operated on the competitive tension between players on the fringe of going out or coming in.

Three or four of our players have been pitiful the last couple of weeks and those on the fringe who are fit and in form need to be given a chance

This whole.. 'I would have been wrapped with 3-2 at the start of the season' thing doesen't really work for me. We arn't a finals team so where we sit right now doesen't matter. id rather be 1 and 4 and to have played a dogged, passionate, proud.. style of footy. We came out brimmimg with energy (whilst largely ignoring defense) and we won some games. Since then, we have regressed to 'Leppa era' level of football. We are at code red levels of concern right now. Theres nothing good here right now.

Daniel McStay.. put your hand up and tell Fages you need a spell in the 2s.
Come back when you actually want the pill.
I’d drop Lyons and Martin.
The whole midfield got their pants pulled down maybe except for mcluggage at times.

The worry for me is how easy it is to go from defense to inside 50 against us. As soon as a team gets outside of their defensive 50 we are wide open. Not sure if it is a tactical issue or a system breakdown
