 I am with you petemac, team has underachieved all year, if you cant motivate them after what happened to Coxy, when can you?

Piss him off now and grab Choco, he has the runs on the board as a senior coach and is obviously commands respect , look at his roles at gws and richmond , plus he is available , if we persist with Simpson we get mediocrity!

Fair go boys, the bloke

Sat, 2014-07-26 06:08

Fair go boys, the bloke INHERITED a list that was lacking in speed, toughness and skill. He had no chance to make any changes whatsoever. There will be a massive cleanout at this seasons end. Im a staunch west coast supporter but some of you guys need to give a guy a chance. Its akin to sayin a jockey can get more out of a second rate horse! Sumich is so far from the answer this club needs, its the players who win/lose games and currently we lack talent and we are slow and soft.

How does this compare with Paul Roos and what he inherited when he went to the Demons?

West Coast have the personel they just arent getting the best out of them which is the coaches job. He was the wrong person for the job right from the start.

From the outside looking in , Simpson just comes across as extremely passive and nonchalant .. he needs to publicly fire up and show some passion instead of looking like a preprogrammed robot  

Wouldn't happen but Roos or Bomber Thompson would be my go to man ..

Sun, 2014-07-27 09:21

 Wellingham should have been a star player but simply he isn't anymore. Maybe our game style doesn't suit him? Anyway I was watching west perth vs east perth with a few WCE players playing. Even though the ground wasn't great and it might aswell been a swimming pool wellingham didn't have much of an impact and I'm pretty sure he was concussed or something? Crips had another grat game kicking 2 or 3 in a low scoring match and Sinclair again getting the vast majority of hitouts. Dunno what we can do with wellingham tho

Sun, 2014-07-27 08:18

roos took on the job on his terms and hand picked his assistants , clarkson paid out of his own pocket for his support staff / assistant ,chocco ,laidley , balm , n.craig was coaching now they are assistant coaches  , IMO ,simpson has been installed to fail,changing of the guard , changing of game plan and { no}assistants ,resources equals results!  can some one please tell me who recruited wellingham & josh hill ? to name a few ,and until the powers that be opens the purse strings and gets serious then the eagles will keep sliding down ,question! hows st. Kilda faring with new coach??

Sun, 2014-07-27 10:18

 Installed to fail?!? Please explain. Why o why would a club install a coach to fail even though he is, I'd love to know your reasoning. The way I see it is the management is failing in their job. These clubs are all big business enterprises now and if they don't get bums on seats and sell lots and lots of merchandise then they go broke. And all you people who point the finger at Eagles fan not being faithful and fair weather supporters look at yourselves and your own clubs when they are failing. It's human nature not to accept failure and defeat, Ive seen it plenty of times at other AFL games when the crowds depart en mass when their side puts in a dismal performance. I accept we are a lonnng way off being a threatening force but I have no doubt in time we will be just need some chainsaw Al's in management. End of rant.

perhaps an eye on another to come out of contract and simpson will do in the mean time ?Worsfold left- assistance left ,changing of the guards, equals club with no direction

he is not strong enough to stand up to the board and dictate the needs to get the job done , unless you put in the resources then you will fail ,just like the dockers have over the last 18+ years could be wrong but simpson is a one man band and  doesnt have the mandate to take a chain saw , the players know it and at the present they are holidaying.

 Not dictate terms, stand up to them and tell them he's the coach and what he needs to get the job done. I'm sure Lyon would've done it at the dorkers, if you let the heirachy meddle in actual football operations then you are a mile behind already. When you fight a war you let your generals on the ground do the planning and fighting not the politicians. Ha ha yep a good clean out in order, just like the Shockers had too when they realised they were going nowhere.

Not being a supporter but wouldnt it be a combination of new Coach and your current list? you have some turn over this year with Glass, Cox and maybe Waters not sure who else? dont know what your draft selection is like but if Lycett wants to go then trade heavy with Port and get some depth- Wellingham over priced recruit of the year but then again we got Sylvia who aint much chop but hey most other clubs have had AFL players spend the rest of their time in the lower leagues getting paid like a MOFO.

Worsfold struggled with them last year too with much the same list, would be good if you had Laidley though I reckon he would be a good fit to help Simpson imo.

Give the bloke a chance.

Sun, 2014-07-27 14:23

 Like mention before Adam had little chance of selecting player list for this year, takes a 1/2 year to see who performs and at what level. With long term injuries and a average second string to pick from bit hard to get a newish game plan cemented in 3/4 of a year. I'm sure Adam has a shopping list with his wants for next year, hope the board supports him so the club can have a better performance over the years to come. Look what the Saints did to Scotty Watters thats how you hang a coach out to dry. A hard preseason is what some of these guys need (body strength and hardness), Adam focused mainly on skills last preseason which did show in the first 1/4 of the season, now when there's more body pressure skill level drops, need to be able to take a bump/contact and still keep control of the ball. By this time next year there will be a indication if what he is planning is working. No good in tanking because GWS and GCS have all the preference picks for the next few years. Heads up boys keep positive and do the best you can that's all we can ask for. Go The Budgies.

 Remember when ross the boss took over at St kilda, it took the players at least half a season to learn the game plan.  When he took over at fremantle it took the players half a season to learn the game plan....  remember what they were saying about freo's footy (ugly!)....  st kilda and freo both had lists of quality.  its taken melbourne half a season to adapt to roos game plan.....  what the eagle's faithful have to do, is give simpson an opportunity to get his coaching staff in order and influence the list management, THEN start teaching the game plan....

The start of next year may be ugly, wait and see what type of footy they are playing at season's end....

 That's right gilly, why would you bother changing positional players like that? The coach did it in my son's yr 8 team on Sat, put two of the on baller's into the back line and they were like chooks with their head's cut off, didn't have a deffensive clue. But on the ball ball they are super stars. It just seems the Eagles lack any new game plan and major intensity on the ball (probably because we don't have an effective centre?) I'm  happy to sit back to  wait and see and hope all the experts on here prove me wrong regarding Simpson.

 the game plan hasn't changed probably because the players are not grasping it. I think what Randall says, is right, it's not fair to judge him just yet. Next  season we'll see where he is at. I do think that he needs to get a better group of assistants around him though - I mean , take our forward coach for example.

Sun, 2014-07-27 21:01

 Harvs was on the right track at Freo....  Better option came along...  laidley never had the behind the scenes support to make it work and proof of that is that neither has brad Scott.  Look at some of the other clubs...  balme never made it as a coach...  football manager at collingwood (????)  = success (2010).... bottom line is that Bart has to have the opportunity to put his team in place, that's something that hasn't happened yet.  I hope he says to the board at season's end, "I want him, him, and her in the coaches box, and he goes and he goes from the list, and let's get that player that player and that player..."....  and then the game plan takes shape.  I think that any eagles supporter who expected results this year was expecting way too much....

Mon, 2014-07-28 07:59

always a tough gig coming into the chair after the favourite son leaves it after so many years. I agree he is too passive and doesn't inspire me to jump on the band wagon of the eagles, he's not selling and kind of plan to me at the moment. I reckon they should move on Nisbett too, he's been there a very long time now, CEO's never hang aroudn that long and he's been there for 15 years now. Fresh blood in the boss's chair to invigorate the coaching panel and staff to bring in a game plan to inspire the troops.

Been away on a trout fishing surprise break

Wow. How quick are we as Eagles supporters to "jump" at the new coach.

Sure I and others expected a lot more. I for one thought top 4. Well history proved me very wrong, but I dont think you can blame the coach for all this.

Now Im not a fan of Simpson and never was. I remember thinking what the hell when we had many other possible senior coaches we could have had. What we DID need was a Mongrel, and I didnt think of the Junk Yard Dog, but that would have been a good idea.

However would have didnt eventuate.

And I dont think you can just dump coaches after one year unless they fail miserably. Simpson failed this year, but not that bad as it could have been. He does deserve another season to install his ideas. Changes dont happen over night.

The Eagles have had stability in their coaching ranks since the early days. Give the man another go, but that would be it. If he doesnt deliver sure boot him.

What we need is 2 fold. 1. Talls that deliver more than they do at the moment. Both keys are to inconsistent. Darling possibly convert to a more onball role. He is quick but possibly not nimble enough.

2. size in the midfield - this has been covered over and over. Pridis is the only one reliable but he isnt a big midfielder, more a down and dirty (ie in the mud) type. What we need is a bust through the pack type. Where we get that is a whole new question.

I hope next year is a better year

A Melbourne supporter started

Mon, 2014-07-28 09:43

A Melbourne supporter started this thread and everyone jumped on the bandwagon.I mean melbourne know all about how to move coaches on dont they.I reckon give the guy a chance ,he is new at the head coach possie ,new to the club etc.Lets just see what he comes up with next year,he looked pretty pissed off after what happened to Cox on the weekend (low dog act ) by the way,but due to AFL restrictions couldnt say much.Bet he will have plenty to say during the week.

In Simpson’s press conference

Mon, 2014-07-28 10:58

In Simpson’s press conference his body language suggests he was going to water to me .. a tough gig , but that why he gets paid the big bucks . “ Lets not talk about that . it’ll deal with itself “ whilst mostly looking down playing with his bit of paper wtf .. that’s not angry it looks as if he was going to do a Kim Hughes . 

 
He should’ve been able to use the Cox KO to rev the players up for the 3rd .. but they just rolled over .  
 
Maybe they should’ve enlisted that eagles supporter who abused the shit out of Vickory for the half time talk .. he was fired up and the players might’ve responded .

 Oh yeah Chris that would

Mon, 2014-07-28 11:16

 Oh yeah Chris that would work mate NOT. I am pretty sure he was pissed off ,if he vented and said what he really wanted to say he would be paying a hefty fine to the AFL. If you need something like that to motivate your team your missing the point,they should already be motivated,he aint paid big bucks to to put on a show for the media. The supporter that went of his head at Vickory was right but should have pulled his head in as well. Like i said give him time to get his game plan sorted out then see.Or just get rid of him like the dorckers did with Harvey eh seems to be the easy solution.

well said Willo

Mon, 2014-07-28 18:42

 which club can we back door - and steal their coach , for that matter, we'll bypass their manager as well. And people wonder why Harvey wants nothing to do with the Dockers now. To early to make the call on Simo, as has been said several times already.

im also curious as to why Lyon couldn't fire the freo crew up against the Saints, I mean what more motivation do they need, when it came to a ladder spot, but - they just rolled over.
