Game Review

Another deplorable performance. Carlton fans must have been wondering if there was any improvement coming.

In four rounds the Blues had scored 7 goals (and been held goalless in 11 of the 16 quarters played). We were now dead last on the 8-team VFL ladder, with no wins and a miserable percentage of 28.22.
