Novak Djokovic wins French Open, will he win the Grand Slam?
After Malthouse left AA CHF Travis Cloke fell off a cliff and AA CHB Ben Reid spent 8 years injuredOh, without question. For a couple years there, they were unbeatable. They had a stretch from mid 2009 season to the end of the 2011 season where they went 55-11-2.
Geelong from 2007-2009 for comparison were 65-10.
Add 11-2 to start 2012 under Buckley and it's 66-13-2. Tremendous team Malthouse was able to put together. Should've won more than 1 premiership.
They were pretty young too, weren't they? I guess you're right about the deconstruction post-Malthouse. Definitely disappointing looking back.
The Brisbane Cup at Eagle Farm Saturday commands interest and canny play from Bucks to call it with so much interest focussed thereAlso forgot Euro 2020 is commencing on Friday as well. Massive oversight to not be included really in that list. Any of the major golf tournaments starting in the next 24 hrs?
Buckley always had a large number of supporters on the board, the only posters that hurt from this are the ones that wanted him to stay.But that board have hunted him for months and now that it has finally happened they are all hurt and broken. I understand your point but its a little strange.
In 2010 St Kilda were the lowest scoring top 8 side in the H+A season.Go look at the scores/margins St Kilda put up over 08-10 and you will see the "Ross Lyon = Ultra defensive" theory is patently false. Same with Freos peak.
When he had the players his style lead to some pretty great wins.
For whatever reason the players just couldn't execute in Grand Finals.
If the Pies (or Blues) buy in to what he is selling then they could get a few pretty good years out of both lists. Carlton in a better position to strike.
Not a long term sustainable style though so give him 6 years - 2 to train it, 2 to build on it, 2 to launch for a flag - Then move on.
Cloke got both of his second AA under Bucks and nearly won a Coleman, and how is Ben Reid's injuries Bucks' fault?After Malthouse left AA CHF Travis Cloke fell off a cliff and AA CHB Ben Reid spent 8 years injured
True. We played basically that whole season without Riewoldt though, so that will naturally have an impact on things. We still had an average winning margin of 6 goals though, hardly a 'defense at all costs' style that seems to be eternally stuck to Ross Lyon.In 2010 St Kilda were the lowest scoring top 8 side in the H+A season.
