Lets take what Woosha says at face value. He says, the players and coaches agree, ( a sort of "compact" agreement) to play a certain style of footy that they want to play and what they expect from each other and he wants to make the game very simple and easy to understand..
So we have trained all pre-season on the press, zone and fast ball movement that is the Woosha game plan. Clearly, all that is aimed at dry weather football, which occurs in 20 out of 22 games played on average each season.
Whats missing ? Plan B, a Wet Day game plan. So the style of footy and the mutual expectations are completely stuffed up, and the style of footy they all have agreed on is so inflexibly ingrained, it is difficult for the coach to unpick it and get them to adapt on one wet day.
Now the problem, how many wet days are we going to play? Maybe only one more this season. All I can suggest is that we go back to what we do well and not dwell on the loss, but when the opportunity arises and its raining, they do match sims and teach the players how to play in wet conditions, develop a plan B and .get the players to learn it.
