Posted in Sports NewsCarlton have been aggressive in opposition to Richmond and Port Adelaide within the first two rounds, which is an effective effort for a membership that’s nonetheless growing, however I did are likely to agree with Kane Cornes that the gamers appear content material with honourable losses. The final two rounds have been all the time going to be essential for Brendon Bolton’s males, and so they’ve failed dismally. That incorrect kicking value them within the Sydney sport is a fable – the Swans had 100 extra disposals, and but nonetheless laid 18 extra tackles, which is an indication of poor work charge. The Gold Coast sport was merely one they needed to win, and the trouble was undoubtedly there – the Blues had extra of the ball, gained the contested possession depend, laid extra tackles, however nonetheless didn't win. Carlton’s effectivity when going ahead has been appalling. They’ve went 58 straight video games with out scoring 100 factors, and 18 straight video games with out scoring 80 factors. Extra AFL Brendon Bolton and Stephen Silvagni are lifeless males strolling at Carlton A rule change was by no means the reply to AFL's goal-kicking woes AFL staff of the week: Spherical four 2019 AFL energy rankings: Spherical four AFL prime 100 : Spherical four evaluate (half two) AFL That was supposed to alter this yr, with a extra attacking sport plan, but it surely’s been the identical previous story. The sport plan and staff choice made no sense on the weekend. You’re going to the Gold Coast, a spot which is often dewy even throughout the day, and also you play with three key forwards. The worst half is when Carlton have been kicking lengthy into their ahead line within the second half, they have been kicking it to Michael Gibbons, who's 175 centimetres tall, and hasn’t kicked a objective all season. When that's taking place, it’s fairly clear that one thing is essentially flawed with the communication between gamers and coaches. There’s no excuses this yr. Other than Sam Docherty and Matthew Kreuzer, they're damage free. So why aren’t gamers like Lochie O’Brien, Cameron Polson, Patrick Kerr and Sam Petrevski-Seton exhibiting any indicators of enchancment? The gamers they’ve traded in is one other catastrophe. They’ve traded in ten Better Western Sydney gamers since Stephen Silvagni bought to the membership, and none of them are even B-grade gamers. To a lesser extent, the rookie and pre-season drafting is unnecessary. Jason Tutt, Alex Silvagni and Matt Shaw have been by no means even going to be serviceable gamers, not to mention good. The one good participant they drafted within the rookie draft was Billy Gowers, who they subsequently delisted. He’s now a significant participant within the Western Bulldogs’ ahead line. They have been the worst staff within the league when Bolton bought there, and in his fourth yr, they’re nonetheless the worst staff. What hope are supporters presupposed to have? They’ve bought the Western Bulldogs, Hawthorn and North Melbourne of their subsequent three. If they will’t win one among them, it is likely to be time for Brendon Bolton and Stephen Silvagni to be on their means.
