Reckon that Collingwood list was over-rated. It had a lot of dickheads with huge egos and limited football ability. Malthouse developed a good plan and a good team, and there were lucky to draw that first GF.
Any coach can only deal with the players he has and Buckley has been let down by really poor recruitment, injuries and a poor internal culture.
I would sack McGuire before him, but that us not going to happen. Collifilth supporters love Eddie, and there is some merit in the belief that he saved the Club from extinction.
