    Senior Assist Coach Options

    A few woofers have suggested the need to have a senior assistant coach to change things up. We haven't replaced the disciplinarian from 2016 in Monty. Some names are starting to rise to the surface:

    Brad Scott is a free agent now, could he be like Vossy & Leppa and excel as an assistant?
    Brendan Bolton will probably be a free agent soon, is a proven assistant and worked alongside Bevo
    John Barker (if there's a Carlton clean out) could be a free agent at year's end, has had 'acting experience' and seems switched on

    Some questions:

    1) Any other prospects who are likely to be floating around?
    2) Which current assistants need to be moved on?
    3) Will any of these three coaches above improve the coaching panel?

    Yes. The questions are about the other coaches named (and if they could improve our panel) and if we need to move of any existing assistants out (inc. senior assistant) since we've done very little to the coaching panel.

    Bring back Matthew Boyd into the coaching group and Lindsay Gilbee as a specialist kicking coach

    Re: Senior Assist Coach Options

    Not sure I would like Brad Scott, he and his brother are similar and act like supporters in the box.

    I would look at someone like Barker and maybe Bolton from your list. There are also some rumours about the Saints and Brad heading there, so where does that leave Richardson and Brett Ratten?

    I think by years end there will be some coaches available, and we should look at a refresh.

    Boyd: Collingwood development coach 2018 (Grand Final) and 2019 (currently 2nd). With a lot of kids, if he's truly good at his job then that might be something. Is two years outside of the club enough to bring in a fresh set of ideas?

    He's probably the only ex-player with the steel to actually go up against Bevo if he disagrees. Doesn't seem to be one to ever take a step back.
    Our 1954 premiership players are our heroes, and it has to be said that Charlie was their hero.

    What are some of the qualities we are looking for in a senior assistant coach that's going to make a difference?

    We desperately need some mental toughness IMO.
    I would be looking to bring both Boyd and Cross at the expense of Gia and Rohan Smith. Three years in the wilderness is long enough.
    The losses to Carlton Gold Coast Suns and now North Melbourne is inexcusable. I would also look to replace Steven King and bring in an experienced ruck Coach who is able to teach both English and Lew Young the art of ruck work. We were thrashed in the ruck today with a BOG performance by Goldstein. There is also a need for a running Coach. Our team is too slow leading to handball invariably as the first option rather than kicking the ball. I also think Chris Grantís role as Director of Coaching should be under review.

    I prefer we get non- bulldog people to the club who have experienced success. What can they bring? New ideas, new strategies and a different way at looking at things.

    So we need to look at the Cats and Hawks for coaches that would change things.

    For me it’s all starting at the top. He is lost it. We’ve all seen players out of Posistion, players out of confidence and we can’t even start at the selection table.

    Cant agree with this, we just don't have the players with experience, especially in the talls.

    Both Matthew Boyd and Daniel Cross are outstanding individuals who are highly regarded at both Collingwood and Melbourne respectively. They wouldn’t tolerate the mediocrity that we have served up over the past three years. I take your point of looking outside the Club but the WB has its own unique qualities and the two mentioned are first class people who would do wonders for our Club
