AFL Rd 9 2023 Post Game Prognostications Carlton vs Western Bulldogs

Apparently we wanted this one at the MCG. But we don't get much say on anything.
Live Long and Prosper!

That last 6 minutes was disgraceful. As weak as absolute piss. To me that is worse than the first half as the game was there to be won and they didn't fight.

3 goals in 5 kicks when goals were tough to get all night. FMD!

A spirited fightback falls short in the final five.

This is how the club's facebook page described it ::)
Seriously.
We were blitzed in the final five.

Have to agree, really thought we would win that rather than get run over after we had changed momentum but like I said during the game its going to take more than one win or a loss to change my mind on how we are travelling.
The talent is there but this fluctuation in effort leading to a drop off in skills is something I cant get my head around.

I was way more pissed off with the last 5 minutes than anything in the first half.

F50 entries/pressure and kicking for goal just not good enough. Not taking opportunities and no scoreboard pressure  just shatters confidence. Last 5 mins we just gave it up.
Reality always wins in the end.

Seems much the same as the last few weeks, plenty of possession, good defence, good numbers of F50 entries, poor ball use and poor kicking for goal.

But at least the crowd hung around for the 4th qtr.
2024... Moir of the same to come

Its like we thought it was just going to happen and stopped with the effort and desperation which had got us back into the game.
Really a very odd last 5 minutes in terms of attitude from our blokes, must be doing the coaches head in.

We waited for that for years. Done nothing. They get indoctrinated with the same poor attitude when they come to us. Until this club wants it badly enough nothing with happen. That's just our culture.

Pretty much as expected including that late surge when they dangled the carrot to the long suffering masochists of the CFC. I have finally accepted that I will most probably not see a Carlton premiership for the remainder of my lifetime. I'd like to apologise to my son who I forced the navy blue on at birth. Dogs are seriously not that good. They will not be a factor at the pointy end and yet they beat us because we are a shell of a team.
P.S. Another masterstroke by the MC. Ed Curnow was a masterpiece as the sub. Hard to believe that these blokes get PAID to make these calls.

Small forwards still a massive problem and lost us the game again. So many inside 50s and cant lock the ball in. Too young and not good enough. Owies an exception and did well.
Depending on two forwards out of six is bad business. Unfortunately other than Martin there is no one else to bring into the team.

Acres disposal is costly
I couldn't recall him hitting a target all night
17 disposals at 47.1%
I'm surprised it was that good

the sad thing is he wasn't our worst in that respect. :(

Special mention to Cottrell in his first game for the season.
He'll be an asset.

Ditto.
Injuries no longer an excuse. Talent is there. Record sucked in members signed on. Um.... why are we so crap.

We've played one decent game v a WAFL side. That's it. At this rate we'll have a top 5 pick. Problem is that our so called rebuild core of stars will be past it.

Keeping together is progress.
Working together is success.
