Are the Bombers being badly coached?

Essendon's performances are nowhere near the pre-season expectations that many had of them.

And what they're doing on the field at the moment clearly isn't working.

This week on the Real Footy podcast, Michael Gleeson, Jake Niall, Caroline Wilson and Jimmy Bartel are examining the problems with the Bombers, from their game style, to Joe Daniher's form issues, to John Worsfold's contract.

Also this week, Richmond are premiership favourites and there aren't many sides that can beat them this season. The West Coast Eagles are also looking impressive and are bound for finals, and despite a loss last weekend, the news is good for Collingwood.

Plus, the Carlton rebuild is going to take longer than planned, whispers about the band the Tigers are trying – and so far, failing – to get in touch with, the Saint who wants out and much, much more.
