Biggest mistake he made was saying midway through the season that we would improve in the 2nd half.
Looking at the average age of the team (excl BJ, Kelly & Jobe), this was never going to happen, we ran out of puff as the season got longer.
While we beat what I consider to be fellow 5-8th bracket teams like WCE, Port & the Cats, we never beat any of the top 4 teams like Sydney, Giants, Crows or Tigers, so where we finished on the ladder was about right.
Personally I reckon that Sydney loss in Rnd 14 ‘broke’ us for the year & we never fully recovered or recaptured our form after that. Gleeson was the most shattered player of the whole team after that game & to his credit played his guts out on the weekend & attempted to redeem himself - if only the rest of the team took the same attitude.
Also people cracking jokes about Woosha getting the team to coach itself on the field, well that’s exactly what Bomber did at Geelong (hence why that numpty Scott got gifted a flag in his 1st year) & Clarko did at the Hawks - & both coaches did it from Day 1 of arriving at their new clubs, they didn’t flick some magic switch all of a sudden when they became top 4 teams, it was ingrained in both those teams from the start to ensure they became top 4 teams.
Worsfold score = 7/10
