Assistant Coaches


#181

In his defence at isn’t just the last 2 seasons it has been terrible. As Bacchus said, hard to be good at it when the cattle is ■■■■ average


#182

The day Hardie gets info right is the day I win tattslotto


#183

M Harvey safe?


#184

Isn’t he normally spot on and was one of the first to suggest Woosha and McKenna to Essendon? Or am I thinking of someone else?


#185

Yeah i think so. Defence seems strong, most players down back are improving


#186

One can only hope. But won’t happen


#187

Is Rick Charlesworth still available?


#188

Sign up Ling to teach them how to tag :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:


#189

As much as I loved Solly as a player, I’m sick of vacant positions getting taken up by the old boys network. We have been like this for far to long and it’s gotten us nowhere. Getting Woosha was the right start. If Solly is the best man for the job, great but if not, no preferential treatment.


#190

Burns and caracella would be a solid coup.

caracella has more than proven himself at geelong.


#191

I’ll do it.


#192

I would happily have Buckley as midfield coach when he gets the boot from Collingwood


#193

Solly’s been at GC for many years has he not?

No idea if he’s any good


#194

That info is bizarre if true.

McKenna only just got here and is joined at the hip with Woosha.
Neeld is reputedly a very good assistant coach…

Who is doing this review and why?


#195

CGates


#196

Didn’t he move to Richmond this year???


#197

ah well theres goes that idea.


#198

I heard Hardie on 6PR but he also wrote an article on it which indicates the pressure may be on all the assistant coaches.

There is also movement at Essendon to try and bolster John Worsfold in the box. Pressure is going on the likes of Mark Neeld, Guy McKenna and co at Bomberland.
In a case of musical chairs Scott Burns could end up at the Bombers, who has worked with Worsfold and Solomon could find his way to Windy Hill.

Hardie is well connected and what he has said is plausible.


#199

These two are the worst

Wasn’t Neeld in charge of player development or something a few years back? I remember the young players coming in and looking good. Now he is opposition analysis isn’t he?

Worsfold: ok Neeldy, how do we beat the Carlton this week
Neeld: we need to tag Gibbs
Worsfold: tag? you mean go head to head in midfield?
Neeld: no no no, we need to TAG!
Worsfold: …oh i got you, head to head it is
