Saw it a lot yesterday, ye olde Melbourne‘ returned, sucked up to the ball ,not paying enough respect to their direct opponents. Everyone chasing a kick. Everyone running forward of the ball and being caught out.

Don't know how many times North got an easy handball over the top to a teammate too on the counter attack, was infruiating watching three of our blokes running at the ball carrier. I guess they suspect Lever is back there to bail them out so whatevs. 🤷🙂

Turner sprints forward to be apart of the play, too hard for old Charlie Olives

After I saw these 3 efforts in the space of a quarter and a half I thought we were done for sure

It was glaringly obvious that we paid them no respect early on. Their second goal I think came from a boundary throw in. I reckon we got sucked in leaving a north player free out the back. I'm glad we fixed these issues in the second half the Melbourne of years gone by we see this early 'we are not on' (aka being lazy sh*t ) you know it's going to be a long afternoon.

This one's the worst by far, so much of it is poor play, poor set up and poor execution


I've highlighted Jordan In this passage but there's 4 of them, Jordans just the laziest.
All our players defensive side of the contest, ditto for theirs. Jordan with the dot

North win the ball, Pickett and Oliver gone past Jordan who's literally standing still.

North have it now defensive side. Jordan still hasn't ******* moved yet. Not only that but we have 4 wingers unoposed. So not only are our inside mids being lazy but we are also banking on winning easily in the contest by keeping our width. The inside mids were lazy af today so north had extra at the contest.

There's the 4 wings, plus Jordan still standing still.

North kick it forward to 3 blokes alone. Just sh*t footy all round.

Lay off Jordon, he does no wrong. Not his fault

The lab is back? Seems like I have some good midweek footy content to go through.

I’ll message my feedback directly to the Canadian for any changes he might want to consider.

Good example and reckon there are a few others very similar in the lead up to some of their goals. Work rate was terrible. Clarry gave himself a week off yesterday and we might have missed Viney cracking in who we’ve maybe under appreciated this year.

Yeah Viney does a lot to set the tone with his beserk approach at the footy/oppo. Missed that in the first half yesterday.

Is TK's LAB taking requests?

I feel like we're losing a lot of centre bounces where we're all running the same way, expecting Gawn to drop it down someone's throat. He's getting his hand on it, but it's either slightly misdirected or the mid is fumbling. We're all then past the ball and the oppo has 2 or 3 players picking up the loose ball and strolling out of the circle.
