So what do we do this week?
Beech is out, who comes in for him? I don't think Steele is the answer. If Murphy's fit I'd plonk him in Beech's spot up forward. If not, I'd play Duval there.
Surely Redfern has to get a crack, probably at the expense of Morrish or Conor Fairlie.
Several others will hold their spots simply because we don't have alternatives, due to injuries (an extraordinary number) and lack of depth.

I’m BETTING Steele will be selected unfortunately, it’s happened every time Beech has been injured.
We haven’t tried anything new all year with our forward line and I don’t think it will change this week.
I really hope I’m wrong.

At this point, I don’t think it matters who comes in and out.
North will give us an absolute belting.
The weather might save us a little.

I want to see at least ONE player in front of the ball at ALL TIMES!
I'm FFing sick of watching a player gain possession at half back / centre / half forward, then stop and wait for players to run past so he has some one to kick to!
Gotch said he was bringing a more attacking game plan, so lets see it.

Have to agree with Bottle Top.
The current game plan is terrible.
How about buck the trend and leave 2 forwards inside the 50 arc.
Total team defence is so boring.
I’ve been watching a few games from the SANFL 80s of late.
Thrilling, exciting footy the way it is supposed to be played.
Why has our great game become so terrible Crying or Very sad

I often watch the '83 West Adelaide highlights ( there are a lot of them) on you-tube, the Game, the crowds, the atmosphere....... amazing.

Because when it went professional it became over-analysed and senior coaches started borrowing from other very defensive sports, like soccer, where you all run back defensively, try to maintain possession at all costs, and never kick to a contested situation.

Will be interesting to see what happens at AFL level. The stand on the mark rule was brought in to increase scoring and open the game up.
It worked initially but coaches have worked it out now.
Last week no AFL side scored 100 points.
We know that SANFL sides play the same way. The problem is at SANFL level the skills aren’t as good which makes the game even worse.
I think zones will be a discussion moving forward.

More great imagination from the selection panel . Drop Fejo who is young and has talent and keep in ex SANFL rejects . Why say he is unavailable with illness and then play him in the reserves .Smoke and Mirrors .

A fairly predictable result given where both teams sit on the ladder.
I thought our effort was pretty good today.
The way we move the football is terrible.
Lots of dinky, nothing kicks and too many kicks sidewards and backwards.
We hardly ever use the corridor.
We must find 2 or 3 Key Position players for next year.
Our recruits this year have been really disappointing as a group.
We have too many players that should not be playing League Football.
Another concern is the amount of soft tissue injuries. 3 players today went down with hamstrings. Josh Gore looks like a bad one.

‘Wolf Pack’

Your post is spot on, we should have been beaten by 100 points.
North had 66 inside 50’s to ours 28.
We haven’t improved at all, we employed a new coach with proven credentials and we supposedly recruited better than we have for sometime. There was optimism, but as usual nothing has changed.

Since 2016 we have been the laughing stock of the SANFL. We are so far away from even the 9th placed team.

We employed a new High Performance Mgr which we needed to do and once again our injury list is the worst of any club.

We won 8 games in the season before the change.

Four of the last 5 or so the season before.

Sadly, only a few in the past 3 seasons.

West are the laughing stock, you only have to look at the comments from oppo supporters who dont even take West seriously when we play there club. I cant even defend my club when my mates gives me grief about West anymore, how can any of us?
For all the positives of the current Board set-up, the results have been worse than ever and there seems to be no accountability at the club anymore.
I feel sorry for Gotch, can coach but has no cattle and the cupboard looks barer than I can ever recall.

Well said Blacky. Smile
From what I've read, he seems to have a lot of negative things to say about the board considering he's not even a member, does he even attend any games? Was told he doesn't. So his comments towards the board on this forum looks like he's only s*** stirring. How about the moderators here give him a warning.

Whispy, it's about the football mate, not personalities. Can you outline the positives at the club since this Board, (which I voted against) came in? Seems to me every aspect of the Club has gone backwards, so I'm happy for you to explain how we have moved forward. BTW whispy, my first game watching Westies was in about 1959 and my fist W.A. "hero" was Colin Brown. Let's keep it about the football, and let's hear those positives about the current Board, cheers.

Well your older than me then. Smile My first game was in 1967...
As far as the board is concerned, i was told we are doing very well financially, it's on field that is the problem at the moment and that was set back and i won't mention any names, but recruiting after the 2015 grand final has been a disaster and it's been a struggle since to recruit a lot of quality players. I'm quite confident we now have the right people in place to do the job but there's a lot of catching up to do. It will come, but it's not the boards job to go out and recruit, their job is to keep us financially stable and put in place people who can do the job properly, it's the football department who are working very hard to correct the mistakes left by others.
Have a nice day Smile

You have warned others for posting less..he's done nothing but put the board down since they were voted in.
Aren't we all supposed to be supporting the same club? The club most of us grew up loving, through the tough and good times.
We have had a lot of tough times, more than i wish to remember.

Happy to be corrected, but I think our financial status was improved largely because of the Covid jobseeker payments and perhaps SANFL payments from the Footy Park sale, but I'm no accountant. I believe memberships are down on previous years, crowds at the games certainly are down and of course, our on field performance has been appalling. And Communication from the Club to supporters has been poor. It's starting to look like 3 wooden spoons for Westies, I would have expected SOME improvement since this Board took over. And I don't believe all the ills currently surrounding the Club can be sheeted home to one or two individuals, that's not on.
