Collingwood star asked whether criticism of the club has been ‘fair’
Injured Collingwood star Taylor Adams says there’s no doubt the club’s start to the season hasn’t gone as hoped.
But he says it’s not “doom and gloom” at the Pies, despite constant speculation about Nathan Buckley’s future as coach and the club’s controversial trade period that saw Adam Treloar and Jaidyn Stephenson leave the club.
Speaking on 3AW, Adams was asked whether he thought the criticism had been warranted.
“The fact we’ve won one game and lost four means there was always going to be a lot of pressure on us,” Adams said.
“There has been a lot of change at our football club over the last six months and we’ve learned to adapt to that.
“The start to the season hasn’t gone the way we would have liked it to have gone and we’ll be missing some key players for the next couple of weeks.
“The difference between the way we’re perceived outside the four walls of the club and how we feel inside the club is that we’re not that far away
“We feel like we have the bones and structure to play really good football and compete against any team.
“For us, it’s not doom and gloom and we’re really optimistic.”
