The inconsistent performances on the field this year was the most frustrating for supporters. The lack of clear direction and disjointed Board and Coaching Staff did not help in any way. The sacking of Teague was reminiscent of Rattens’ premature departure in 2012. Both times I think the Board’s assessment of where the team was and where they were was optimistic to put it lightly. The two very experienced coaches that were brought in over the last 20 years, Pagan and Malthouse did not work, noting both were close to the end of their respective careers, maybe a Voss or Brad Scott with work better than Lyon. I think Clarkson, despite his impeccable track record may not have been the best fit, but you can understand the attraction in offering him the position. A lockdown mid/small defender should be the target to allow Williams and Saad to run the ball out of defence and push to the wing,and a pressure small forward to keep the ball in under McKay and Curnow’s feet. There are positives and once the dust settles, hopefully we can see a united Club whose on field performance can match the off field successes over the last couple of years.
Carlton isn't a club in crisis, they're actually making progress
