I think if we start next season 1-6 like this one just gone, no matter who's injured, bolton will get the flick.

So by that logic we’ll have to beat at least one of:
- Richmond
- Port
- Sydney
- Bulldogs
- Hawks
- Norf

For Bolton to keep his job?



to me ... sydney start slow. are beatable.

dogs, hawks and norf are beatable. port have some big squad list moves. losing the chad will hurt.

and we always turn out for game one. we could be 3-3; 4-2 ...

Ya know....

it's safe to say... we're going to lose
more games than win next year...!

we're going to lose winnable games...
we're going to win loseable games...!

I'm thinking we probably just need to
hold on tight for a couple of season's
hey...!

i believe it was the great Yazz who
said...the only way is up...baby...!

just try and prove her wrong...!


kindest regards tommi

I think we can win at least 2 of those first 6.
I think they’ll break it down into sets of 4 matches. Basically aim to win one each month. And then hope for another one or two here and there.

However, my aims for the year:
A) Show clear game plan and that we are at least working towards executing it consistently and then effectively. Consistent, effective defence, good ball movement, some sort of forward line structure/plan
B) Do not get smashed (80pts is what I call a smashing)
C) Beat the other bottom 4 teams (GC, Brisbane, StK) - ie win the games we SHOULD win
D) Win a couple of games against teams on the next rung up (not sure who these will be yet but should become apparent in the first couple of months...)
E) Pinch a game against a top 10 team
F) Lift in performance or consistency from top picks yet to nail it: Weitering, SPS, JSOS
G) Continued growth from: Dow, LOB, McKay, Kennedy
H) Make us glad we traded for you Setterfield, McGovern (I’m not so hopeful about Fasolo adding that much but happy to be pleasantly surprised...)
I) Nice to have: Fringe players knock the door down eg. Pickett, Garlett, Cunningham, Polson
J) We find the ruckman who can take over from Kruezer (not yet but we can see it... eg TDK??)

I don’t ask for much, I know.
Oh, and I’d love to see a few end to end runs featuring Weitering, our gun mids, Curnow and McKay/McGovern pulling down big marks in the goalsquare!

Maybe it's time we focus on the way we wan't to play regardless of who we are playing. Preferably one that doesn't involve kicking 7 goals to the opponents 6.
Can't predict how teams are going to play from one week to the next especially in terms of intensity, Geelong seem to go thru a patch each year where they are awful.
Most teams from 4-14 similar. You simply cannot predict how well/or bad teams are going to play.
Develop a style and mindset of our own that stands up to any opposition, make them worry about us.
Get these kids dreaming about what they can do on the field themselves, not who they are playing against; or how highly an opposition team might be rated.
Win the mental battle, this game is played between the ears as much as any physical skill. Spend more time playing like you are 5 points down with 1 minute to play. That sort of intensity for longer and longer periods. Who dares wins... End harangue.

I think you are both treading a reasonable path.
This year we could win five to ten games if 2017 is any indication what we can do with a stable defence and a much better midfield than we had then and certainly a more promising forward line.

To me the problem is kicking goals and the avenue to the forwards that causes it. I used to get so wild watching teams wait for an opening and then pass twenty metres to a space or a leading forward and occasionally kicking long. Our F50 entries have been predictable since Kernahan played. Kick it long to (insert forward's name).
We cut Richmond to shreds for half a quarter plying daring footy. Then we had a couple of injuries, they recovered from the shock and the rest is history BUT we did show that by not just kicking it long all the time to Casboult, we chould score quickly.
Games are won these days by having players forward of the ball and moving the footy fast into your front half and keeping it there.

That's what BB needs to do. Something similar to Richmond, Melbourne, WCE, Collingwood but distinctly Carlton.

I like it!
Esp the mindset of ‘5pts down, 1 minute to play’
(With the possible exception being if we are 5pts up, 1 minute to play ;-))

It is the best.

My kids played it to their Sydney Swans mates, just to give them an idea of what it means to play for Carlton.
