Once more a blatant holding the ball decision in the opposition's forward line was called play on and led to a goal for them. It's not good enough.

50 and 100 metres penalties are also ruining the game.

I know people are bagging the structure, but I thought it was good today. I thought we had a good balance of inside work - and won the clearances. We had outside run. We had tall targets forward. Our defence was ok. We had more inside 50s.

I just thought we didn’t take our chances. Often we had numbers, then muffed a disposal, and Richmond found themselves running the other way in space.

Our kicking and decision making going into the forward 50 remains a shambles. Too often good players made shocking decisions.

I think a play in the third summed it up. We won the ball, got it forward to Hill and Matera running into the 50 with plenty of options. Matera gave it to Hill on his wrong foot, so Hill gave it back to Matera on his wrong foot, and after burning the forwards the two knuckleheads conspired to kick a point.

That sort of thing happens way too much, especially today.

Maybe it’s fatigue, or bad coaching somehow indirectly, but I just see veteran players being numpties.

Whatever. Anyone in a Freo jumper forward of half back rarely moves right. When someone does their teammates rarely deliver to them.

Freo make poor decisions. Under pressure and under none. Too many.

We are getting into trouble along the boundary line.

A lot of the poor kicks, panicked handballs come about from the set up of the players up the ground.

Thought amongst other things we were disorganised again.

They were beaten by a much faster and skillful side today.
The gap in class was palpable.

I'm pretty sure you were watching a different game again, morgan.

I know you say stuff in support of the coach and club but your grip on reality is just a bit tenuous. We were poorly skilled compared to Richmond (coaching issue) and we were poorly orgainised compared to Richmond (coaching issue) and we failed to make any changes to counter what Richmond did (coaching issue)

Richmond made changes at half time that won them the third quarter, maybe we should have tried something similar.

Giving good effort as a sole focus will never win a flag
Egurls Suck!

When has it been different Morgan??

Call it for what it is ...its the result of terribly poor coaching.

It's the result of coach refusing to take the club in any other direction than what he has been doing throughout his entire stewardship...and his entire carreer.

And he openly admits it. His whole modus operandi is based around effort & structure, rather than skills.

And guess what kills us each week??.

It is not rocket science.

If you have a look at the heat map today, we went through the middle. We had more clearances, more inside 50s and as many marks inside 50.

Richmond out-tackled us, including 16-3 for tackles in forward 50.

The balance in our forward line isn’t right, but 3 forward 50 tackles is a disgrace given how inefficiently we went in.

Completely agree Morgan...and if you looked at the stats at half time, you would have noted half the team had had fewer than 5 disposals. Fyfe & Mundy way out in front of the rest.

So. Question. :What changes did our coach make to address our obvious faults/issues. ??

Answer Bugger all.
