    You're overlooking the fact that the reason we're in most of these games is the coaching.

    Now either the message isn't getting through to the players to not bomb long to their marking players or we have dumb footy players. You saw ross reacting, he's not instructing them to do this crap. We have dumb players

    Suban and Spurr should never be seen again. If Spurr must be selected KEEP HIM WELL AWAY FROM THE BALL ROSS I.E. DON'T SEND HIM IN AS FIRST RECEIVER FROM KICK INS.

    And when Taberner was last playing, remind me what he did. Oh that's right, sweet **** all. Yeah, picking Taberner solves all our problems. Pull your head out your arse.

    Long bombs happen in footy. Sometimes you're under pressure and have no other choice. If Lyon's game plan can't accept that then he shouldn't coach.

    This is not a fact. This is your opinion.

    Also to emphasise the point on Tabs, he had 8 disposals and 7 clangers.

    It is a fact. You blame the coaching for everything when we're losing then must be something else if we're in it or up.

    Let me know next time when we're in the 8 with a good percentage and I'll praise the coaching then.

    We won 4 games last year and are looking like finishing bottom 3 again this year with a list that is not that bad.

    If you're happy with that then you'd be happy with anything. Our game plan is god awful and it was obvious midway through 2015 that it needed changing. 2 years later, same old shit. Lyon still trying to win games through defense when all the good teams are kicking 115 points per game.

    You know, when the same criticism is made every game about forward structure. When you see Freo play 5 forwards, only one (if you are lucky) being over 192cm. When there is seemingly no improvement in leading patterns all year. When players have been bombing it long without lowering their eyes as long as I can remember. When the camera pans across the field and there is nobody in the entire forward half. Then, yeah, it's on the coach.
    Other things on the coach are: the players stand too far off their man so Freo is killed by teams that just chip the ball quickly and accurately. Secondly, they seem to have lost the ability to make any tackle stick.
    There are some really good young kids in this team. I worry whether we'll see the best of them unless the training and game plan changes

    Watching Suban contest the ball in the air with McGovern was cringeworthy, and you are correct it was a terrible match up and you have to wonder WTF is going on.

    But we had multiple scoring shots that could easily be converted into 6 pointers, RTB cannot control that.

    We are currently a bottom 4 side which is comparable to a young team in a rebuild.

    Happy days are ahead

    Clearly I'm not happy, but I'm not simplistic enough to blame the coach for everything.

    Our game plan isn't that bad, we're just not skilled enough to do it properly. Missing those inside kicks and crap i50s aren't Lyons instructions.
