    Always Right Match Committee Thread Round 13, Vs Carlton

    Welcome to the Always Right Match Committee Thread. The Match Committee threads has been named after long time WOOF member Always Right who tragically passed away in March 2018.

    If you were on the Western Bulldogs match committee what changes would you make after our Round 11 match against West Coast for our Round 13, 2019 match against Carlton at Marvel Stadium?

    For those new to these threads, please give a brief explanation for your changes ... this would add a lot of value to the discussion.

    The mob that smacked us around and kicked over 100 points, something we don't do...

    I'm beyond caring at this point. The players by and large look disinterested no matter the ins or outs. It's shuffling deck chairs on the titanic. Something is happening to make talented athletes perform so poorly as a whole. Until we can address that as a club, and who might be behind it, the ins and outs are a moot point.

    Kicking multiple points is demoralising. We didn't deserve to let ourselves be beaten by that much. We are not that bad.

    Haven't really looked at the opposition for next week. But we need a bit of hardness and experence in the midfield. Love to see Jongy come in.

    Schache was injured yesterday, but not sure the extent of it.

    I haven't watched the game so can't say who should be dropped but it matters very little at this point. I can't see the axe being swung too hard as we don't yoyo players in and out of the team and persevere.

    Has Macrae mentally checked out? He's a shadow of his former self.

    At halftime I had JJ as an out to make a statement, however he clearly responded to a bake at halftime.

    I'd put Gardner back, English forward, and put Trengove in the ruck. If Carlton get easy supply to Cripps they win, inside mid opponents can kill us (Cripps, Cunnington have done it and evn Gaff destroyed us for clearances yesterday).

    In the last three weeks the opposition teams have kicked 60 goals 20 against the Dogs. Thatís 380 points.
    We have had 3 disastrous losses.

    In the last three weeks the opposition teams have had a total of 10 more scoring shots than the Dogs.

    Focusing on the second statement holds the key to better success. Why do 10 kicks make so much difference?

    Because The selectors have been doing the same thing for the last 40 games and it has not worked. I am sure they will keep doing it.

    What should they be doing? Getting a new mindset would be a good start. Focus on what is actually generating the results for a change instead of blaming players. Some of the suggestions made here seem very positive to me.

    MJP has been telling us that we have a problem defending, and that was highly evident yesterday, yet we have been banging on about inaccuracy in front of goal. Guess what, that is our problem - defence all over the ground.

    Essendon managed to sit on Cripps yesterday for his lowest possessions tally for the year.

    Which probably means he'll be revved up for a blinder.

    Change all the fringe players in the world. Won't matter if our 'stars' get smashed by theirs.

    That is the key to beating Carlton, he killed us last time. They don't have anyone else in the midfield.

    Could Mclean play as a tagger?

    It sounds like the sort of thing Bevo would conjure to keep things interesting. At least it'd involve McLean in more active play I suppose.

    Putting our boring, common-sense hat back on you'd say Dunks is best equipped for the task on Cripps but he's arguably our most influential mid at the moment so do we rob our engine room of some drive in the hope Cripps gets 30 instead of 45?

    It's all a bit moot unless Macrae, Libba and Co can find another gear.
