Firstly let me say that I hope you are all in good health and that that you are coping well in the current situation .
Soon I will be posting a blog about all the bullshit and self interest that went on at the club and how it will have a lasting effect . I will also be posting a blog where I will be offering members of this site who I actually like the opportunity to get into their first home because underneath it all I'm one of life's true Angel's , i just hate dorks , lefties , dipshits and cunts .
The mighty eels have once again been the most hyped up team in the comp and if they can live up to the hype as always is the million dollar question .
When you year the so called experts talk about the eels chances one of the mains things they bring up is the flogging they gave to the Broncos last year , yet they never bring.up the most important game the eels played which was the semi against the Storm .
It's almost as if the game never happened and all that is ever mentioned is the Broncos game . The Broncos were a crap side and statistically were one of the worst sides to ever make the 8 plus playing Pokies till 3am on game day didn't help , against the Storm the following week the eels were humiliated and were made to look like a park footy teem in all facets of the game and yet again showed how far behind the team and it's players are from the elite level.
Over the years under Brad Arthur the eels have shown that they
1. Buckle under pressure and have zero mental toughness and the ability to handle even the slightest bit of adversity in a game .
2. Have piss poor defence .
3. Have a attacking game that is one of the easiest to defend against and is predominantly based on kicks , how many times over the years have we seen the eels with all the possession and field position and fail to score ? Phil Gould summed up the the eels attack perfectly in the storm game when he said it was as if the storm knew what the eels attack was going to do before Parra did .
The eels other problem is that they have no leadership , Gutherson is the captain yet he is one the chief culprits who collapses and buckles when the pressure is on and that is not captain material . The eels have to many players who have shown they can't perform against the Elite sides .
Hopefully with John's at he club he's been able to change some things because we know BA can't , for most of the players John's will be the first person they have had who actually has a footy brain guiding them .
Going by what I saw last year , if the Broncos turn up the eels will struggle but I hope I'm wrong .
