    Good appointment along with the likes of Slater, Ratten, and Lade.
    They are attempting to shake things up.

    a few months back when the doom and gloom posts were thick and fast around here where it looked like we were about to impload i got a message from a person in the club telling me not to panic everything was being blown out of propotion and things were in place to make a big differance for our club from 2018 ... i think this caps it off .... the club is going to be remarkably differant in 2019 and in spite of the disaster that was 2018 im excited for 2019

    it's easy to write him off because of his age and the GWS/Coll saga, but its bloody awesome this club has gone from very few experienced football operators to having 2 respected senior figures inside the club.

    I have said that the football side would be the lasting legacy of the current board despite the great work ( re: sponsors/Moorabbin). It's great to see that club making the sweeping changes that can only make us better.

    Whilst I will keep calling for Richo's head, at least there are people at the club now that can validate his ability or lack of, that actually have the knowledge to make that call.

    Well done Saints for a very fruitful off season rebuilding the football dept.

    Gotta be happy with this appointment. Building a nice set of skills behind the scenes at the club now.

    Hopefully Josh Kelly is the first thing in his inbox, and his appointment shortens the odds of a 2019 Moorabin Welcome Jelly Parade!

    If only we didn't cripple ourselves on field with the Port/China deal.

    That is a ridiculous statement. It's one match, it'll have little effect on field.

    It's happened! I thought it was just noise but it actually happened!

    Great appointment, shrewd operator that stuffed up with the Whitfield saga but is otherwise good value to his employers.

    Really, we've done all we can short of Press gang Clarko or Carracella back to Moorabbin. Hiring a valued Clarkson assistant Ratten, an experienced assistant Lade, a recently retired champion with fresh eyes Billy Slater and now this appointment. You cannot say we've sat on our hands.

    Leadership, coaching, development and recruitment were the big knocks on our performance over the last 18 months, we've addressed those aggressively and in a few years our team should be showing the benefit.

    Good work St Kilda!

    China is a smart economical move and also a great opportunity for our young team to bond together on a trip heading into the back end of the season ....

    Had an interesting phone call last night from the club.....first time ever in my 32 year membership. The call focussed on the club by promoting all the good things that are happening off field and how next year could be okay.
    Whilst they cannot say much they were very interested in what I had to say mostly constructive criticism and focus at the grass roots....my points were noted and will be passed up the line.

    Maybe 2018 was the year we had to have.....it seemed that our Road to 2020 Premiership Success was all to easy as we were definitely tracking to finals as per the plan.....Surely simply writing it down on paper makes it happen, it just cannot be that simple.... and as we found out it is not.

    All successful teams usually require you to get good people around you.

    We as supporters cannot criticise the club for the steps and people they have put in place.

    12 months ago if we had suggested that we would have Lethlean followed by Ratten Allen Lade and Billy Slater all of whom have tasted premiership success as some of our key people....we would be rightly saying....yeah Destination Club on the verge of finals finally getting quality to take us further to a flag.

    Well let's see what some serious professionals can do to get this leaky ship we love so much back steaming up the ladder.

    Go SAINTS

    Noticed how we addressing our weaknesses on and off the field. Adding experience such as Ratten, Lade, Slater, Gubby, Batchelor, that statistic guy and now Gubby also Bassett. And Hanners and Kent with picks 36 and 46 along with 4. Draft night could be the cherry on top.

    Good signs
