Michael Voss and Carlton are under pressure as the losses keep piling up. But given their recent history under different coaches, is it over the top to put the blame squarely with Voss?

This week on the Real Footy podcast, Sam McClure, Jake Niall and Caroline Wilson discuss the “drastically underperforming” Blues. Do Carlton lack depth, or is it a good system that they’re missing? Do they have the right balance? Is the midfield pace problem one they’ve created for themselves? Though the Blues recently had a review, the football program didn’t really change. And the club hasn’t really improved. Is there a coup brewing at board level?

Richmond have been dealing with a confidence issue, going back to their loss to the Western Bulldogs in April, but had a great win against Geelong on Friday night. They showed good signs against the Cats and looked as though they had returned to their premiership-winning style. But is it enough to say the Tigers are back? Can they make top four, and do they even need to?

There’s a fairness problem and an entertainment problem with the fixture given how poor three teams – North Melbourne, Hawthorn and West Coast – are playing this season. Is it just one of those things or should we be critical of some of the clubs? And which is the most vulnerable?

Sydney lost a gettable game to Fremantle in round nine. They’ve had a lot of injuries, but they can be criticised over a couple of key trades in recent years. Is it too soon to write off the Swans?

Plus, why there’s a watch on St Kilda, the Pies are flag favourites, the AFL’s soft cap problem and who has the better forward line – Adelaide or Brisbane?
