100% Agree.I’m hoping the second pre-season under the new Irish fitness coach will see the players’ bodies settle into it a bit more.
Do we assume the rigours of a new and more vigorous fitness regime contributed to some of the soft tissue injuries throughout the year?
Fingers crossed this preseason they’re more “conditioned” and ready to handle the rigours of the training the fitness coach has implemented. Will have a big say on how we fare next year id reckon. 5-8 wins would be a win. And no/minimal 100+ point losses.
We also need to improve our WAFL side
Get Shuey and Hurn to play few games and try get the other delisted players
to stay with WCE
I believe Shuey said he would play a few games for the WAFL side but wont be a regular
Also ask Jack Redden if he wants to play wafl
If we can get these experienced senior players to help the ammo's
Less injuries and start winning each week and make wafl top 4 that would
be a huge boon to the development of the senior team
Our 2005 and 2006 teams where made of the back of East Perth grand finals teams the years
before where we developed so many players rookies included
Yeah 100% I said 5-8 wins just as a gradual improvement but if we won 3 or 4 but had no losses over 10 goals it'd be an improvement of sorts.Wins & Losses aren't even important for mine.
Just be ******* competitive.
Everyone fully expects a young team to struggle, so fading late in games or being outclassed by tougher opponents is fine... but getting off the bus and failing to even remotely fire a shot (once again) is going to piss me right off. Too many years i've watched Simpsons senior players be either injured, or when they play they look like they don't care. Time to leave that in the rearview mirror and get some fight back. Players that are hungry again and yet to acheive anything.
Get some dog in ya, get in there and win the football. Make the opposition work for their win. That's all i'm after
Looks like our regular bundle of joy, Happy Go Lucky Goroyals is already looking forward to next year.Expect nothing then you won’t be disappointed when we still finish bottom 2, won’t sack the coach and gaff still gets played in the centre square and McGovern misses 3/4 of the year and barass half of it and darling still plays like a cripple.

Yep, last year had some higher expectancy with the caveat regarding injuries, the season was pretty much over after the Freo game in terms of being competitive.
