Our win against the Weagles was the proverbial, “Dead cat bounce”.

I haven't watched the game today but the numbers stack up, have we reverted back to that poor "control" game. WTF is going on?

We are in the process of getting skinned alive by a GWS team with their best midfield sitting in the grandstand....
Mediocre players who have had mediocre years continue to get games...
Our replacement options appear limited...
And the Tigers appear poised to deliver the last rites...
Where to from here?
Nah. The WCE game was the hungry cat purring and rubbing against your leg. Today was the satiated cat disdainfully ignoring you.

If the win against the eagles was Collingwood purring along then there is no chance that Collingwood will win the flag.

And if today was a fat cat then I agree with you. Too many players are figjams.

Shows the WC game was more about them not turning up after half time than Collingwood turning a corner, still the same old s**t.

Nathan Buckley will never win an AFL premiership
Name me one coach without a flag that you GUARANTEE will get one.

You make it sound so easy - where was your bagging of Buckley last year when we were flying.

Just rubbish - but obviously playing to an audience like TTRRAAVVIISS.

Yeah, I should have left out the purring and just gone with the rubbing against your leg part of the analogy.

We've reverted back to a style of play that was very 2014-2017.

Unwatchable, and based on controlling the ball with stagnant, un-inspired choices by foot.

We were so much more free-flowing last year, we kicked over 100 points TEN times during the H&A season.

This year, we're on track for @ best SEVEN.

Can’t “control” the ball if you don’t have it.
And we have been out bustled, out numbered at the ball, outskilled and outcoached.
Actually we had the ball just as much, more I50, Hit outs - beaten in the clearance game but. Just think we've been found out and we're just not that good.

Last year was a golden opportunity and it was blown by negative, sh*t coaching.

But I'm sure you can find 100's of posts by me saying Buckley is a sh*t coach over the last 8 years, nothing he has done has made me change my mind on him. The handover cost us at least 1, possibly more flags.

Never left! But 8 seasons as coach, 1 successful year where we blew a 5 goal lead in the GF due to negative tactics and we only got there on the easiest draw ever seen. Then this year, another soft draw yet back to playing like sh*t. Its not like its one loss, we've been playing sh*t for 2 months now. Really we only had about 2-3 good games early after a sh*t start then since ANZAC Day its been downhill.

Why does no-one add context to the situation? Everyone loves citing their missing midfield guns but we were missing key players too. You can snort and make other disdainful noises but a fit and healthy Moore, Langdon Reid, Beams, Elliott, Stevo, Greenwood does make a significant difference to the outcome of yesterday's game. Our attitude and style of play is a worry but so too is being one of the worst hit sides injury wise..yet again. Did anyone hear Jack Reiwoldt raving about how underrated Langdon is and how much work Richmond put into him during the week leading up to their clash with us? And he's just one missing component.

You are writing garbage. Our draw was labeled the toughest in the comp this year.

COLLINGWOOD has been hit with the hardest fixture for the 2019 season.
Champion Data has run the numbers after the AFL on Thursday revealed the home-and-away fixture for next season, with the Magpies to play premiers West Coast, Richmond and Melbourne — all teams who finished top four this year — twice.

The WC game was a false dawn.
And we swallowed it like a twenty dollar hooker in an old FJ.
There was already signs in WC game we dominated the play the last quarter and a half and could only manage to kick a couple of goals.

1 goal 2 behinds in 3rd quarter and 2 goals 6 behinds in last quarter with front half control many of the 6 points were rushed behinds too.

Didn’t watch the game after the first 20 mins. Probably second time I’ve ever done that.

GWS lose top 4 or 5 to injury they have other A or B+ grade players to replace them, unlike us, we have 4-5 out and we have. Mayne, Brown, Cox, Crocker, Sier, Daicos, IQ, Wills, Noble and fu** me dead Appleby ( is where we blame Bucks ) the guy is garbage and always was!

Then we have some liability in Aish, Phillips, Varcoe & Fumbles Maynard

That’s the difference there.

We need to be bold in trades this year

Move on

Sier
Elliott
Thomas
And 1 or 2 others so we can get some athletic running defenders and a decent forward - every player in trade mention is going elsewhere and not the Pies.
