I think what we all need to grasp,is the fact that we are not involved in Aus kick footy,where everyone on the list is guaranteed prescribed minutes in the league side,and as far the last game of the year in the 2s was concerned,i only see Sparks and Cooley with their size,skill and ability as  definite league material.                           I felt during the year that maybe Sebit should've been given more opportunities,but he was rarely sighted in the last league game against Subi,  and probably justified the selectors reluctance to promote him during the season.Its one thing to rack up possessions and kick goals in the reserves,but transferring that to league level is a bridge too far for alot of players and Sebit is a good example of this.                          If we want the league side to go to the next level we definitely need to recruit,as the answers to address league squad deficiencies are not in the reserves

Wow and here was I thinking that it was auskick, thanks for that insight.

The point is that players who were out of form or are just not upto it kept being given a game when some changes should have been made. 

As for Cooley yep he may be a good league player, Sparks is a selfish player who is constantly being told yo do the team thing so until he gets that he will only ever be a b- player

Oh and the news that the WCE are talking to EPFC again will be an interesting development on a number of fronts.

Grump which players did you think weren’t up to it out of interest?

This from the swans game May 1

Allsop, questionable
Hindle, no or at least not this season
Furlong maybe 2022
Reilly, sadly no
Hall, NO!
Albertson NO!
Edwards sorry but no.
Lockitt perhaps this year

From the last game
 Hyne No!


The rest of squad like Fabre, Van Dieman are perhaps, Amos is or should be the second ruck.

My apologies Grump my comprehension skills must be waning.  I thought you were referring to league players not up to the standard.  Which reserve emergencies did you think should have played more games.  I agree that list of players are battlers in most cases.

R2019 my error, 4 players who were out of form and should have been dropped, well Robertson - consistent throughout the season, Magro - went games without any impact but then saved himself by playing an ok game, Simpson - everyone remembers the somewhat spectacular stuff but never consistent. There were others who played some really good games but were missing at times - Hille was one who at times needed to be told but seemed to be a favourite and there in lies an issue.

Robbo was ok before the ankle injury then struggled seemed to carry weight. Probably wouldn’t have dropped him for his physical presence (Will Schofield)
Magro suffered a flat spot must of been close to a run in the twos. But his top level is streets ahead of who might of replaced him. 
Simpson doesn’t work hard enough but still our best option for a long bail out kick. I would replace him long term. 
Hille struggles at times in senior football. Not my style of player.  
Fair enough assessments but not much to replace them with.  Boules and Cox I would have no issue with.

My point is and it is the biggest issue that I have with the current regime is that there is no plan for when players need to be dropped let alone a game plan that works week in week out, for a WHOLE game and I do not see it much better this year but that is my opinion and seems to be at odds with most others.

you make some valid points grump except about eddie.i doubt he was out of form.he may have had the odd bad game but he acheived something none of our forwards did.finished in the top 10 goalkickers of the wafl with 29 goals from 16 games.to put this in perspective lets look at all the other marking forwards at east perth
ajang 10games and 4 goals
kuek   3 games  and o goals
dobbo 8 games and 11 goals
merritt 13 games and 11 goals

these 4 players played twice as many games as eddie and contributed less goals (26 goals)
eddie also had to support jones as the back up ruck because ajang just couldn't take a mark or kick a goal.

all our small forwards were dissapointing.i thought young was poor in the middle part  of the year and should have been dropped.he got injured and missed two weeks and came straight back into the team.a sad reflection of how poor our reserves were this year..

Anybody with any basic football knowledge has to know,that you can throw out all game plans out the window when you do not have a decent ''SPINE'',particularly a power forward.How well do you think the Joondalupians would go without Keitel,and do you reckon Riddoch and Knott would be as dangerous around the goals without him??If we tidy up that area in the off season we will be playing finals next season,and you can quote me on that.
