I reckon he’s a good coach, probably in the best 4 or 5 in the competition. There’s a fairly long list of spuds on our list and as soon as we got a few injuries things started falling apart pretty quickly. I almost think he has overachieved this year.
I call for his sacking most weekends but it’s usually in the aftermath of a loss when my brain is fried.

It's become boring repetitive and unpleasant just like Ross the Loss

Please list the spuds. The playing list is pretty good IMHO.

You could have labelled Matera a spud last year and Colyer this year, but Matera has turned it around. I reckon Colyer will too.

Banfield and Crowden can't get a game, are they spuds? They weren't last season. The new players like Schultz aren't spuds. Other draftees are untried.

Sandi and Ballantyne are out the door, but Sandi is in the best 22, so are they spuds? Bennell was a spud but he is gorn.

Wilson is patchy and couldn't kick with his left foot on Saturday night but he isn't a spud. Darcy is a log but a very good tap ruckman. Perhaps Jones and Meek are spuds but they are backup.

Langdon is an endurance machine but he is a bit mediocre. I'd be happy to trade him if the Hill bros stay and are fit.

So, who are the spuds you're referring to?

Media frenzies aren't what they used to be. It was a couple of polite questions at a press conference.

There are three clubs looking for a new coach and he's a coach without an offer from his current club who previously jumped clubs in the dark of night. He's going to get questions.

That's the only time they shut up, when he's in the room.

They have to, hypen.

They need all their attention to be able to decipher the tommyrot he goes on with. Let's not even talk about the load of old cobblers and whatever they're doing.

There's two things here and they're separate.

Lyons performance and the garbage the mainstream media is going on with.

They might well be related.

How do you know that Roly hasn't being geeing up the Melbourne media with the intent of panicking the cretins in the club admin to extend his contract. Talk to some people, rumours get spread, big articles in the paper, a presser where he refused to answer any questions on talking to other clubs.

Maybe even a few phone calls to some ex-players to talk him a bit.

I'm not saying Roly is definitely driving this but its certainly putting pressure on Freo to make a decision.

That seems far fetched. It's not like he went out for lunch in the middle of Carlton with a Carlton official.

The media don't need any leaking from Lyon to start rumours. They've got space to fill and they'll fill it with anything.

Reading between the lines I'd say Ross and Belly are planning a coup on Steve's role. Belly for CEO and Ross for manager of football operations.

It's the only* story that lines up all the recent commentary.


*If journalists can make stuff up, I can too right?

No good, straddo.

Two things:

I. You need to juice it up a bit. Something salacious always goes down well.
II. You're doing what's known in the trade as a Hackdorn. You didn't fudge the details enough to give you an out when it all goes pear shaped.

Fix those two and I reckon you're good to go

The first step would have to be getting a top shelf assistant in place. Then it's just a matter of when.

Good advice,

Take II

Ross Lyon and Peter Bell have been seen together a lot lately, it could be that they're working on the strategy (does that count as an out?) but the rumour is that they've been seen holding hands down at cicerellos, a last ditch effort to show that our fish and chips are better than Lygon street (out number 2) or is something brewing down at Cockburn HQ?

CEO Steve Rosich hasn't been around for days, with some supporters saying he hasn't been seen managing the club for years. Could his time almost be up? Unlike Ross, he's not contracted so there would be no payout if he was to be forced out. Peter Bell would be the logical choice as interim CEO whilst they sourced a replacement. Recent comments from Ross Lyon show that he could be interested in a non coaching position and given his interest in staying in Perth, a vacant GM football position could be the ideal fit. The players have shown they love Ross Lyon, maybe because he doesn't care about wins and losses, or maybe because he thinks cobblers are critical to football and the last cobbler in Perth shut down in 1972. Who can say how things develop from here?

There's more to this story, stay tuned...
