If Ross does leave (I don't think for a second he will) then geez you'd be happy if you are the next coach with what he has left you.
Yes the list is beautifully set up for any incoming coach, and if a change does happen then I would still be optimistic about the future. Like you I don't think it will happen, and don't think it should happen, but the building blocks are pretty exciting.

Water-tight defence peppered with players in AA contention.

Best inside midfielder in the comp, best wing, best forward/2nd ruck, best small forward/mid, great mid support with exciting emerging talent.

Forward line with massive upside.

A superstar emerging from the injured list.

Exciting NGA prospects, including some who hit our areas of deficiency.

Headlines across a few outlets. The guy is such a troll. They both new exactly what the headlines would be when they chose to sit in a public space and eat lunch in Lygon st of all places.

Tolerance of Victorian dim sims and that cafe's style of sushi? What an appalling condemnation of the palate of both men.

Lyon holidng all the cards at the moment. Still contracted for next year, has the team playing well and rebuild looking good and publically flaunting he has options to go elsewhere and doesn't need to beg for his job.

Get behind him 100% or get searching for a replacement.

You'd be pretty happy with your position heading into the bye if you were Lyon right now. Wylie old fox.

Bingo, I am Lyon out but I'm happy for him to stay if we continue the trajectory of this season, however, this list is in a good position and if we were to lose him I don't think it would be a massive blow, provided the club hired the right person.

Ross is trying to bluff the board into giving him an extension (fair enough, he has every right to do so) but they just have to hold firm and wait until midway through next year to make the call.

We've got a good list, Ross knows that above all else.
But he was spotted in Carlton today (Lygon St) with Steve Silvagni
And it begins. Knew he would do something of the sort. Wouldn't be surprised if Silvagni told Ross Bolton would be sacked, let's have a chat.
SOS is such a useless manager.

Drum, Harvey and Connolly were the right guys at the time, and the last two of those were head-hunted for the job. That is, they were our first choice coaches.

Make a shortlist of your 3 favourite, available replacements and tell me why we could expect better results than we got from those 3, or why they would do better than Lyon. Losing Lyon would be a significant blow to our 2020 chances.

I almost posted last night as a joke, could anyone confirm that Lyon flew back with the team? I guess it turns out he didn't :)


No problem with this, apparently they asked his advice on who to look at last time, maybe that was a cover for an enquiry and a thanks but no thanks, and either could be true this time as well, or its a straight up unrelated meeting and the old blokes just think this is funny. Bottom line is Carlton aren't doing their job if they don't at least ask Lyon, Clarkson etc if they have any interest at all. No different with top players coming out of contract.

Even if it seems the side right now is travelling OK, would be absolute madness to think about extending Lyon's contract by several years/millions if that's what is needed to keep him. If we make a prelim or GF, then reassess.

Or maybe he had planned his four days off well ahead of time..
I don't doubt that. The part I think is master troll is making the lunch super public when it didn't need to be. I mean, he is perfectly entitled to eat lunch at a restaurant but he'll know he is going to get questioned about it.

Got a better sense of humour than many give him credit for.
