MATTHEW LLOYD'S BEST-TO-WORST COACHES OF 2012

LISTEN: Matthew Lloyd details his choices on Sports Today

1.     Brenton Sanderson (ADELAIDE) - “So many players have improved, they play a far different game plan to Neil Craig, and it’s getting results"

Image

2.     Nathan Buckley (COLLINGWOOD) – “Players like Beams and Sidebottom have improved”

Image

3.     John Worsfold (WEST COAST) – “He’s lost 147 goals in Kennedy, Lecras and Nicoski.  Pretty impressive to be on top of the ladder when you’ve lost the players they have”

Image

4.     James Hird (ESSENDON) – “Faulted on the weekend... but have improved out of sight”

Image

5.    Damien Hardwick (RICHMOND) – “Sitting on 10th on the ladder but the draw and the way they have improved I have him in 5th”

Image

6.    Scott Watters (ST KILDA) – “I love what Scotty Watters has done”

Image

7.    Kevin Sheedy (& Mark Williams) (GWS) – “Sheedy gets credited with the games, but for mine Williams is the tactical coach and Sheeds is the motivator”

Image

8.    John Longmire (SYDNEY) – “Couple of bad losses but keeps getting the job done”

Image

9.    Matthew Primus (PORT ADELAIDE) – “They are well drilled and they have come a long way from last year”

Image

10.    Chris Scott (GEELONG) – "Contested ball has been really disappointing"

Image

11.    Brendan McCartney (WESTERN BULLDOGS) – “They’ve let themselves down twice this year but have been pretty solid”

Image

12.    Alastair Clarkson (HAWTHORN) – “Too inconsistent for the talent they’ve got”

Image

13.    Michael Voss (BRISBANE) – “Got a bit of a bolt up the list with the win on the weekend”

Image

14.    Brett Ratten (CARLTON) – “Say for example Brisbane have got 4 wins, Carlton have got 6, I’ve factored that in with what they should have done with their talent”

Image

15.    Ross Lyon (FREMANTLE) – “Not scoring and not pumping the ball inside 50”

Image

16.    Brad Scott (NORTH MELBOURNE)– "Haven’t seen any improvement with their foot skills and are getting killed defensively"

Image

17.    Mark Neeld (MELBOURNE)

Image

18.    Guy McKenna (GOLD COAST) – "They should be more competitive than they are"

  • Are you serious? Ross Lyon in 15th?

    He should have been in the top 4, being the first to coach Fremantle into a genuinely dangerous side

  • Pathetic Bombers. Absence of tackling, pressure embarrasing. Each season the same- begin well fall away under pressure.
    We thought new coach = new hope. Been conned too many soft and poor players. Many L/Murray, Lonergan, Hooker, melksham, Monfires, Reimers would not get a game at more than half afl clubs.
    The club needs to look 4 another coach.
