Has there been any sort of post mortem, or even communication, to members and supporters, from the Board/Hierarchy after yet another disastrous season? Hard to think about 2022 in any sort of positive light!

To be competitive next year we at least need to recruit 8 very good players and I can’t see that happening.

Does anyone know if we have lost any good players from our current playing list?

The Eagles lost 8 players from their Premiership side of 2020 and mostly to the AFL and they recruited very well to once again play in the GF in 2021.
How can they do that and we can’t?

Time for our well credentialed coach to deliver along with our well credentialed board

I just hope the rumours that are floating around aren't true.

It's never good to take rumour as fact, but the Club needs to communicate with the members.

I hope my fears for our club are unfounded, but we have no CEO or news about a replacement, a new marketing manager but I'm not sure it's been announced (hopefully I'm wrong and missed it).

Hopefully there's no other bad news we haven't been told?

I'm hearing a lot of not so good news all round.

The Club needs to let members know if anything is happening.

Are the rumours in relation to on field or off or a combination of both?

Two points, Barkez.

First, forums are the home of rumours, it's part of a forum's interest.

Second, your last post was a rumour about a recruit where you said you wouldn't give any more clues and would wait for the Club to announce it.

Which is exactly what I'm doing, hoping for some info from them.

All footy forums have rumours.

I've heard one from three sources today. I hope it's not true.

If it is true, it's best left to the Club to announce it.

If it's not true, then the rumour is wrong and I'll acknowledge it's wrong.

Should know either way in the next day or two.

Or perhaps after 15 years of rumours on this site, we might need to bar them, but I don't think any of us would want that.

I have been following West Adelaide for around 65+ years and was lucky enough to be part of the football operations at league level for around 37 years. This post is not saying anyone is doing anything wrong in any way purely stating my approach which may differ to others as we are all different.

While it is up to each supporter to post what they see as appropriate my personal approach is not to post rumors about player recruiting or leaving/resigning as early release before all negotiations are complete can dramatically effect the end result. IMO mentioning potential recruit names that the club is talking to lets other clubs know who we are talking to and then approach them as well.

If the Club had let the members know any of these things, if they are all true, there would be no need for rumours.

I hope maccas rumour about Kane Stevens is wrong. Would be a great loss if so.

Murphy is a big loss also.

Two of our top 4 or 5 players.

On the Club website



The West Adelaide Football Club would like to notify our members and supporters of some departures from the coaching ranks in 2021.

The Club would like to thank Josh Ramsey, Rickie Kelly & Nick Ben for their commitment and dedication to the Club over the 2021 season as well as the last few years. We wish you all the best with your next endeavours!

We would also like to congratulate Josh Ramsey on being appointed Senior Coach at Port District FC for 2022. Josh coached our Reserves team for 2 years prior to being elevated as a League Assistant Coach in 2021. We have no doubt Port District FC are in great hands and we are excited to see the influence Josh has on his new club.

Further changes to key staff and all the news regarding player departures and new recruits will be released after our Best and Fairest this Friday night.

Unusual for changes to be after the B & F, not at the B & F. Probably just the way it's worded.
