Looked like the plan was tight defensive footy for at least the first half. We did try to take the game on more in the second half, just look at all the turnovers when we went inboard. Thats us trying to attack using the corridor. All it achieved was blowing the score line out further.Yeah we had nothing tonight.
There were only a few things i liked:
Defense is great, Thommo will be missed he is outstanding, unfortunately Tarrant plays worse without Thompson there.
Essendon lost by over 100 points under the roof to the dogs.
Cunnington tried hard.
Jmac was decent.
Garner adds something to the side.
Higgins was ok.
Hard to really say anything about the forward line since the ball isn't going down there, but still would have liked to see more from:
Brown, needs to present an option and get it to ground.
Zurhaar didn't show much at all.
JZ is just pathetic, should be dropped on the back of that performance.
Polec probably played his worst ever game for us.
Simpkin, Atley, Dumont Anderson all just rubbish.
Didn't like the coaching either didn't try anything new reminded me of a certain someone.
Couldn’t agree more with the bolded. Then the little conference he has with the umps at the breaks. Seen it far too many times. He’s not the captain, he shouldn’t be standing there getting explanations all the time. Adam Goodes was the same. They umpire the game themselves. It’s a joke.How was Ablett's constant appealing to the umpires tonight?
He's just embarrassing himself now. Geelong should do the right thing and retire him immediately.
If Moore is to blame for our losses, is he the reason we have beaten contenders the last two years as well? At what point do we stop assigning scapegoats and blame the players for not being able to execute the basics?Jarred Moore has to go; it's not looking good for him as our stoppage/midfield coach.
Has absolutely been our weakest aspect all year, our scores from stoppages are deplorable.
Always;and thats why they will be chopped liver come FinalsGeelong always drop at least one back, it wasn't just after those goals. Every time in the 1st half when the ball went to Brown, he had Taylor on his tail and Stewart right in front of him. In the end half the ball never even got to Brown.
Yep. Had that on the second screen. Paid more attention to the rugby in the second half.I watched the Wallabies win and it was ******* mint.
