This is 100% not his fault.
Logue kicking 20m inside 50, turnover goal. Young kicking across goal, turnover goal.
These players make pathetic mistakes every game.
Poor basic skills were Lyon's fault when he was coach.

Seriously though at least part of these woeful performances are on him.

That bit of play by Henry proves that our forward line is where talent goes to die. Needs to play on the Wing.

I haven’t been to our training grounds in a while. Are there still goalpost there or did they remove them so we can focus on other things while the forward line “figures itself out”?

There's an element of a poor gameplan on show though. It almost reminds me of what we used to do under Connolly - too much zoning, not enough direct pressure on the ball carrier. The monster disparity in tackles inside 50 is evident of that - and today's game is not a one off, it's happening most weeks. Add to that our iron will in always going out the back when we get the ball in stoppages - even when we end up with a clear possession, by going out the back if gives the opposition the time and space to set up 50m away and we struggle to find a teammate.

Even if we get our skills up to scratch it's hard to see this style of play winning a flag.

So we lost Pearce, Fyfe and Walters plus Treacy minutes before the game and people are outraged we lost?

Injuries once again have absolutely f’ed us. It’s demoralising.
