Adelaide coaches: we exist to troll adelaide supporters!

What I like about us is that every week we say we'll improve and every week we don't, we do the opposite! Maybe this week we should say we'll do dumb footy and we might play smarter.

We kicked only 2 goals in the second half.

We can struggle to kick scores over 60 points.

There's any number of things we could do, like we could've played man on man there at times during their uninterrupted 6 goal stretch, to change something up, but yer, nah, just have to do more of the same better, yep that'll fix things.

Talk about deer in the headlights players, we have deer in the headlights coaches FFS.

Not even fussed. Clearly one of those years we finish 10-12 and still don't get games into guys like Fog.

We must have the cheapest coaching list in the league and it shows.

Whenever CEY plays I know we're dredging the bottom of the barrel.

Just shit all round.

Keath good. Eddie decent.

Lost all respect for Ben Brown after that acting performance.

Tex and Jenkins just fcuk off

Murphy – Two momentum changing mistakes in the first quarter. Limited ability

Umpire number 30 – Has killed us time and time again over the last decade.

Chayce Jones – Courageous kid

North, well coached……..at playing for frees

Jenkins – Not only one of the softest players to put on a Crows Guernsey but also one of the laziest. Bring on Himmelberg. Will join the "elite" 200 game club.

Talia – Horrible game

Betts – Legend of the game

Walker – Largely invisible as usual. Must retire at the end of the year.

Ellis-Yolman – Why? Horrible, nothing player

Crouch Brothers and Sloane – tough

Tom “Bruise Free” Lynch – Match deciding mistake in the last. Soft

Pyke – Coach with limited scope for improvement or to adapt to change. He is so obsessed with his system he fails to recognize and fix obvious weaknesses in his now flawed system. Dead Man Walking

SLAM ! Window closed. Rebuild time.

Sack Don Pyke

There is one game plan, and it doesn't work.

Not one player cared that we were getting smashed around the ball, not one player put their body on the line to win a contest

The coaches sat there and did NOTHING!

Bottom 4 beckons. What is it going to be Pyke? All well and good to drop one underperforming senior player in Gibbs but what about all of the other pea hearts running around pretending to be footballers? Jenkins, Mackay, Hartigan, Kelly, CEY and Lynch have been worse than Gibbs was. Are they going to be held accountable? Make some ******* changes or get the **** out of the club.

Good :? Forgot the meaning of the word.

Bad : The cheating umpires.

Ugly : Us. Coach can't even pick the best 22. Matches are won and lost at selection tables. Sack him. I've seen enough.

Agreed, said at the time, one of the four senior forward players had to go as well

Good:
Keath - Best on by far for us tonight, a former cricketer playing his 16th game, ffs

Bad:
Tex - Should drop himself, terrible so far this season
Talia - Worst game from him that I can remember
Hartigan - Why did we play him against a team with 1 genuine tall?



Ugly:
This 2017 gameplan in 2019
The inevitable soft changes we'll make this week
Why was Jb commentating a roos game?

Worst loss since the 2017 Grand Final.

Not the fact we lost to North. The way we lost it. Scared of physical contact, sucked into their defensive pressure and very little linkage possession that worked.

Cant even pinpoint exactly where it went wrong specifically or the exact players responsible. All were bad.

I have no positives.

Well over to you Don.
Whatever the game plan is it’s not working.
Either change it or change the players or both. If we make only Jones and Cey as outs I won’t even bother watching.
But lose next week then pack your bags and be gone.
