Yes, yes, I'm sure you're right.
Under-sieged Eagles coach Adam Simpson has fired back at criticisms his job is on the line, claiming he's up "for a fight".www.theage.com.au
Two years ago I couldn't find an Eagles supporter who didn't want Simpson sacked and they were also very vocal about. Thankfully for them the Eagles hierarchy was not listening to the extraneous noise - I hope our club is as strong.
That is not to say I believe Lyon should or shouldn't be sacked - I just don't think that decision is, or should be, driven by noise - and that's all we are.
Excuse me? What part of that was something that I personally made up about him?The one you supposedly apologised for is a good place to start.
Just maybe the part where you stated his alleged indiscretions was effecting his coaching this season. The one you conveniently deleted. Short memory.Excuse me? What part of that was something that I personally made up about him?
Well that's kind of my point. Backwards and forwards bickering between posters on nothing really to do with football or the thread should be best left to PM's. Or else just leave them to it, not jump in and make it worse.s**t, I forgot this was a public forum and not some weird insight into two posters PMs...
Geez you eagles supporters are like Beetlejuice!....if we ever even mention anything about anything west coast, it doesnt take long for one to appear!!Correct i was in that boat with him, we seemed stagnant in how we were playing, however Simmo made significant changes to the way he coached in game style and player selection, they are on record in saying they picked players for specific roles, did not try and turn a midfielder into a defender , and also moved on some assistants a well, in his time as coach we have regularly had new coaches come in. This when we were not going that bad and were still in finals.
Has Ross done this ?
Except I never said that at all. You’ve completely made that up.Just maybe the part where you stated his alleged indiscretions was effecting his coaching this season. The one you conveniently deleted. Short memory.
You certainly flip flop all over the place
And you're calling me out ,really.
I was agreeing with your point.
But this one:
You can't be defined by results - what does he actually mean by this?
Surely that's the sole aim? Improving results? That one always baffles me
Yes, as a pro footballer you can't consider yourself a hopeless or failure (yadda, yadda) because of last week, you need to get ready for this week.I took it as meaning that you can't dwell on a poor result or it will lead to another.
Identify what went wrong, work on your flaws, and move on to the next session.
Nothing is going to happen this year unless there is a major spill.
It will cost the club too much to part ways with Lyon and if they do, Rosich will be the one responsible and his position would become untenable.
That means he is going to back the coach to the hilt for at least another year so can’t see how a change will happen.
Except I never said that at all. You’ve completely made that up.
The exact post was: “New theory, are you Mrs. Lyon? How do you feel about the sexual harassment stuff”.
I deleted it because you pointed out to me it was irrelevant to the thread. Which is true. It was also emotionally charged and disrespectful to Lyon’s wife. I own that.
You’ve created this narrative where I said it was effecting his coaching. Just like you created the Sumich lover/relative narrative.
Perhaps just stop doing that?
Edit: Sorry got it slightly wrong with the wording. Here’s a screenshot. The quote wasn’t deleted, you can look it up on your account too. I’ll accept your apology without reservation.
