You still need the players as we can now see with Hawthorn.
I a, not sure that Collingwood have the cattle to make finals.

Clarko needs to do a major rebuild of himself. All the planets aligned at the Hawks. Can he replicate that magic at the filth? I doubt it. Very different clubs and Clarko's is now a different man, who if he does move will inherent a very ordinary list. I hope Buckley keeps the job at the filth for the next decade. Not many have the "talent" to take a recent premiership and GF list, which is relatively young and still on the up, and turn it into the rabble it is today. Fourth consecutive finals miss coming up. I hope Eddie has the "strength" to stick with Bucks.

Nope, completely off the mark. Eddie Ego has already done the deal with Paul Roos.

The filth aren't far off imo.
The list is clearly unbalanced with not enough fwds.
But if they can recruit two decent fwds including a key position fwd they will be dangerous.

Their midfield is very good but I don't think their KPP's at either end are good enough. Not easy to obtain good talls either. If their coach was anyone else he would have got the flick at the end of 2015. They are going backwards each year. Surely the president can't have that much say in who coaches them.

Their letting go of Brown for nothing was a bit strange.
Not as if they were flush with replacements.
Sort of understood the Cloke decision due to the salary cap space he was taking up but doubt Brown was on much coin.

Surely Clarko is coming to us.

What's the point of tanking if you're not going to get the benefit?

They had to let go of Brown, they would never have been able to acquire guns like Mayne and Lynden Dunn if he was still on the books....

No, Roo's to replace Buckley was sealed last year if Buckley failed. Heard from many sources.

Gold Coast would be a better fit if he was willing to move up there. Would rather Bucks stay at pies for the laughs.

Clarko may do to Roos what he did to Wallace, Clarko way better coach and would be pies preference if available, Roosey won't coach again, has said so himself, he's Game plan is outdated!!!!!

Let's see how it all pans out!!!!!

Old Roosey really did land the goose that laid the golden eggs…

12 seasons, 51% win / loss ratio & 1 flag by under a goal… coaching a side that had a million more per year to spend on players.

I'm sure he's a fine coach, but I could have coached that Sydney side to quite a few wins. Rodney Eade & Rosco Lyon are probably just as good at the end of the day.

I just hope the rumours continue if only so that Eddie re-signs Bucks for another three years just to end the speculation.

Collingwood

Goals (I50s)
7 (50)
11 (57)
11 (53)
12 (62)

Total
41 (222)

Average = 1 goal for every 5.4 entries.

Adelaide are getting a goal every 3 entries.

Conclusion = Collingwood fwd line = s***.

You know, this wouldn't be entirely out of the question. My gut feeling is we'll finish around 10th or 11th, which could put Richo's position under a cloud. Whilst I'd love to see Richo take us to some on field success, Clarko would be a massive coup. Unfortunately if we were vying to get Clarko, Eddie would be likely to offer him a suitcase full of Filth monopoly money, like he did to lure Malthouse away from Perth years ago.
