Knights To Guide Vfl Cats
#1
Former Essendon coach Matthew Knights will guide Geelong’s VFL team in 2012 after accepting the role with the Cats.
Knights has coached at AFL, VFL and SANFL level. He led Essendon for three seasons after stints with Bendigo and Port Adelaide Magpies. Knights led the Bombers to the finals in 2009 and was responsible for giving opportunities to many young players.

“Matthew has done an exceptional job in his coaching career in working and developing young players, and we are fortunate that he can bring that experience and expertise to Geelong,” Cats coach Chris Scott said.

“He has coached successfully at VFL level, both in terms of taking his club to the finals but more importantly in developing players to make the step up to AFL level. We are really happy to add Matthew to our coaching staff and I am sure that our players will benefit from his teaching ability and football acumen.”

Great news.
If you're committed enough, you can make any story work.

I once told a woman I was Kevin Costner, and it worked because I believed it.

Best of luck to him. Was treated incredibly unfairly in his last year at Essendon.

I guess there'd be some complicated emotions around if he came in under Dimma.
Good luck, Knighter. Guess I'll have to change my avatar.

Why change your avatar if you're ok with the service that MK33 gave to Richmond, Dusk?

There's still plenty of time for him to come across to us and meanwhile he's honing his craft.

One of my faves was Knighter.

He was one of my faves too, Gimme.. up there with Disco, Flea, Lee and Free for me. And, while I never had a chance to meet him or hear too much about him outside of what he did on the field, I always thought he was a proud, talented and committed leader who really copped a beating over the last few years and was let down by those around him.

Anyway.. I guess I got caught up in all the changing of avatars and logos that has been going on lately. Tongue
New year, new avatar, I think. I'll have to work on it.

tiger74, wouldn't it be great if Conca picked up a few tricks from Knights? I can't wait to see how he goes this year.

Bit of poetry there, Dusk: Disco, Flea, Lee and Free for me. . . Wink
