    Our game plan / style / tactics are solid

    It's our execution that lets us down and costs us games.

    Hear lots of doom and gloom from dogs supporters but we are on the right path

    And thats why we continue to languish in the bottom half of the eight for the 3rd year straight. Everyone at the club must believe "our game plan/stye/tatctics are solid and its just execution letting us down. Cant wait for 2020 it will be just our execution that will cost us again.

    Does that mean that you think there is a problem with our game plan? Our skill level is at times atrocious, especially once we get near the goals but we smashed the pies today everywhere except where it matters most

    I think our game plan was pretty bad 2 years ago, improved last year.

    Skill levels (besides goal kicking) are also pretty good. We are number one for DE% and 2nd only by a few to Collingwood in Effective disposals. We just have to nail they set shots. Really inexcusable today.

    So we are #1 for DE% and high up for effective disposals, and yet in another thread you dismiss our coaching/game plan being the issue for being 5-8 this season. Sounds an awful lot like the players are adhering to the game plan as set out by the coach, but the results are sub-par.

    They are adhering to a good game plan, but we are not finishing off well.

    Collingwood kicked 4 behinds today, we kicked 13, the majority were shots at goal. I can excuse Lloyd's 3 snaps, but the set shots from 30, 40 metres out no - not good enough.

    There's a game plan? There's a mess that is made less messy because we have a heap of kids with a lot of talent. The coaches box is a food fight. Bevo needs new sounding boards ASAP.

    A goal kicking plan would be nice. We dont have much issue it getting opportunities - it is what we do with them. The 2nd quarter we really should have kicked more goals than we did and the 3rd quarter is where I think we lost it.

    Interesting. I walked away today thinking the opposite. With the squad we've got and the talent available to us, it feels like we aren't far off but our coaches haven't been able to deploy their strengths in a way that gives us enough of an advantage on the scoreboard.

    Good call SoS, I think we have a strong enough list but we are just lacking some refinement with our skills.

    Agree on the strong list, but still think we lack a couple of key posistion players to straighten us up and get the ball inside 50 without the over possession.
    If we are not going to kick it to Naughton one out, play him back and recruit a key forward next season.

    No doubt we say we are missing a fit Tom Boyd but we must have known it was a strong chance he might not recover from his injuries and we should have been looking to make a move last year.

    Re: Our game plan / style / tactics are solid

    Very Early in the game a friend said Grundy is going to win this game too.

    He suggested:
    Naughton to the backline, English to the forward line, Trengove to the ruck.

    Didnít happen.

    Naughton scored 1 behind,
    English was killed,
    Trengove had a good game

    Would the moves have made a difference, I suspect so.

    Re: Our game plan / style / tactics are solid

    Iím wondering if we have a lack of leadership across the park. Players who calm and focus guys like Boyd Snr, Murph and Moz did/do. I personally think our LT lead by example rather than display onfield leadership and direction which is sorely missed with the runners taken away.

    That and I often canít figure out what our game plan actually is....
