John "given em nothin" Worsfold


#1022

Cool. Cool.
Nice ins.
Well, I guess.

Who are our outs?
Let’s see them.
Then come and talk to me.


#1023

Yep.

And everyone and anyone can call me a fool if he gets us to a finals win.
That’s the deal.
Some people don’t want to accept it, but sorry…it is.

People/journos want Woohsa, Xav, etc to come out and blame Neeld… but when you work together you are supposed to be mates. It must have been hard enough to fire someone you’ve worked closely with; of course they’re not going to come out and slag off Neeld publicly. That’s just common decency.


#1025

That’s fine. That was me taking him at face value.

On face value it seems neeld didn’t do much, just organised training and supported worsfold.

Yet when people call out the club for lying about Joe and how long he has been injured it’s all “ they are telling the truth why do you think they are lying”.

It honestly wouldn’t surprise me at all if worsfold hadn’t spoken to Bags, would probably let others speak to him.

I hate referring to Richmond, because they ain’t all that.
But still.
Brandon Ellis.
Premiership player.
140 games.
Dropped because his form was ■■■■.
Not just Premiership player, not one of those ‘oh wow, he was horrible until last year, how did that happen?’
Number 15 draft pick, 24 years old, serious friggin’ ball-winner.

Dropped for two weeks and counting.
In a team that’s 7-1.
We’re 2-6.
Who have we dropped on form?


#1027

You have to be able to walk before you can run.


#1028

Jackson Merrett(a guy who shouldn’t of even been on the list this year)

Pretty hard to raise the standards in a team when there are untouchable senior players


#1029

So what is Essendon doing? Have we been born yet? Or are we dragging our face along the concrete trying to get to our wheelchair


#1030

They’ve been trying to learn a new walk, and have stumbled and fallen, and skun a knee or two.


#1031

Replace skinned a knee with amputation and I agree


#1032

Amputated at the kNeeld?? :smirk:


#1033

We have lamingtons here now? Nobody told me we have lamingtons.


#1034

You have to be in a coterie.


#1035

Now that’s funny.

He is.


#1036

Well played😃


#1037

Just waiting for the inevitable Mills post now …


#1038

Yeah, he looked shot. Possibly 1 bad sleep away from Neeld’s wonky eye.

What is a good team? A good team consistently makes top 4.
A great team wins back to back premierships.

We are and have been a ■■■■ team for over a decade. I’d be very happy to be a good team first for a few years. So that means the pressure is on him. Deal with it Worsfold. Why should we feel sorry for coaches? They make a ■■■■ tonne of money and generally get a payout if they do a ■■■■ job. That’s a 1 or 2 year holiday on big bucks. 99.999999% of the human population would love that option.

That interview reminded me of:

Costello: Well, then who’s playing first?

Abbott: Yes.

Costello: I mean the fellow’s name on first base.

Abbott: Who.

Costello: The fellow playin’ first base.

Abbott: Who.

Costello: The guy on first base.

Abbott: Who is on first.

Costello: Well, what are you askin’ me for?

Abbott: I’m not asking you–I’m telling you. Who is on first.

Costello: I’m asking you–who’s on first?

Abbott: That’s the man’s name.

Costello: That’s who’s name?

Abbott: Yes.

Last post for today…to think I’m trying to stay away from this thread…

Say what you like, but I’m putting my balls on the line here.
You guys can keep saying he’s okay.
And maybe history will show that he’s okay and…if that happens, you know, awesome.

I’m saying he’s the worst coach we’ve had in my living memory.
Which goes back to Davis.
Worst.
Ever.

That’s my stand and I stand by it and if I’m wrong then I’ll friggin’ wear it.

I don’t expect you to.
Oh, how could we knooooow?
And so on and so forth.

Not for me.


#1041

Why?
