Closer to the bottom 4 every week. Surely this will be a percentage booster for Melbourne. It would be a surprise if we could be closer than a 10 goal loss.
This digital world is too much for us insects to understand.

Pack it up.  Crippps will miss, Durds looked sore. Time to play Lemmey, Binns, Marchbank and host of other newbs. Club has some big list decisions to make. Let's use the remainder of the season to figure out who stays and goes.
What happened to my old profile?????

Expectations have well and truly plummeted were honourable losses are acceptable

We need a different midfield mix. Walsh, Fish, Boyd, Dow wouldn't mind giving Owies a crack in there as well. Desperately need pace, teams running away from us at the contest and our structure behind the ball is non existent. Have nothing to lose.

Cripps will play next week. They had him running and whilst he got stepped on it was likely precaution.   I reckon Newman will play too.

If we could just kick goals from the opportunities we create we would suddenly be a hell of a lot more competitive. That could just shine a light and improve our morale.
Reality always wins in the end.

21.41 in the last 3 games is deplorable. Make that 41.21 and how would our season be looking?

I said it last week, Ill say it again, given season is all but over, time to experiment. Lets have a look at some of Cincotta (extended run), Binns, Cowan, Akuei (Im serious), Dow, Fog, Mirkov, Lemmey (not sure what he did after 1/2 time last night).

It's not the only issue, but definitely the biggest one IMO.

I remember Parkin a few years back saying that in his time in football, the skill execution in very facet of the game has improved out of sight, except goal kicking. It's a black art.

Goal kicking has been an issue at our club for decades. Across the board we are so poor at it that its beyond sad.

Akuei is a mile off playing senior footy.
Lemmey has some skills and is a nice kick but doesn't do enough.
Binns looks a player, can kick both feet unlike most of our other players and Cincotta is my type of player for the modern game and should be in the team along with Cowan when fit.
