Whew, take a breath and then breathe out! Thank Christ that's over. In 60 years of watching, playing, managing and supporting footy, I don't think I've suffered a more depressing or poor season all around.Maybe I am, incremental improvement no doubt
I meant as in breakout years but maybe I’m just fed up and expect too much
Not going to say too much but some light needs to be shed on our recruiters, coaches and of course players. I struggle to find 10 players who could play elsewhere and like other posters on here am waiting ever so patiently for the likes of Ainsworth, Bowes, Fiorini etc to show some BIG improvement. Sam Wash in his first year shows more than these guys.
I don't want to suck on sour Lemmens for much longer and hope we can build a side that actually has some body, some grunt, some power and some winning success in the years to come - although I don't have too many left!
We may need to trade some of these future champions, you hear me Touk, to gain some of what we need. Massive grants from AFL have to happen or that crowd of 7,500 last night will become the norm.
On that note, our supporters are pathetic really. How many found other things to do rather than go to the last game of the year, see off Rischa (embarrassing to see how many (or few) even stayed to watch him off.
Last but not least. I actually enjoyed watching the NEAFL boys more than the A's. They seem to have found a game plan and look great when going good...and yesterday they were.
I could go on and on but won't. I need to try and forget the Suns for a few months and hopefully come back revitalised and confident that we can win at least 6 games in 2020 - not that hard, surely?
