I don't even think we have the cattle anymore. Midfield is so slow, can't see where or how that changes. Cogs and Kelly locked in for the next 5 years on huge money (assume Kelly will opt in). God help us if they play like this
Our midfield has been too slow for years, everyone but the dickheads in charge can see that. We are a very average team that will continue to dwindle until it’s a bona fide basket case. Then and only then will City Hall give two fu**s.

The board aren’t fearful of their jobs as we have no say in who gets in and so they float along.
Jimmy Bartel needs to be the one to drive change.

He knows the season is spiraling out of control in a very ugly fashion.

I can understand why as a Director he may not be able to make a public comment post-match.

However, he has to push Tony Shepherd and Dave Matthew’s for an emergency board meeting.

It’s going to be a very embarrassing U-turn for the Board, but time to save the furniture.

I may get abused by this and if you think I deserve it then go right ahead, but Taranto is really average. Sure he finds the footy but his kicking is subpar. No hurt factor. I would trade him if anyone is willing to cough up a 1st+2nd rounder. I guess whoever replaces him needs to develop and the process starts again, but I’ve had it with him.

Lazy bombs and no penetration, next...

That describes most of our mods though.

If Fremantle FC were not completely and utterly incompetent they would have won this by 100. They’ve actually let us off the hook. This is a disgrace.
That’s the thing. All 20 behinds are just missed shots at goal

The thing that makes me pissed is the amount of players that don’t look like they care

That was what I saw last year too

It was not Covid it is a lot more than that. A lot of players that are not prepared to put in the effort for some reason

There's an absence of leadership.

OH to be Humble. There is such a term of " Depleted by injury"

Chairman Tony Shepherd must act this week on Jimmy Bartel’a advice.

We can’t go to Manuka this weekend and get smashed by the Dees, a far better side than a depleted Freo.

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result.
