GWS were on the receiving end of plenty of criticism after their loss to Hawthorn last week and they took out their frustration on the Blues.

Carlton headed to Giants Stadium looking for their second win of the year, but after two quarters, those thoughts were long gone.

The Blues booted just two goals in the first half, their opponents piling on 13 in a rampant performance.

Brendon Bolton's side opened the scoring through Harry McKay but from there it was one-way traffic, Harry Himmelberg and Jeremy Finlayson going into the main break with three goals each.

Former Carlton player Brendon Fevola has labelled the current Blues team as the 'worst ever'. The Blues ' current record stands at 1-16, and the last time a team finished with just the sole victory after the home and away season was in 2013 when GWS played their second ever year of AFL.

Brett Deledio and Brent Daniels both had doubles, while Tim Taranto collected a mountain of footy.

To make matters worse for Carlton, veteran midfielder Marc Murphy went to hospital after receiving a whack in the guts in a contest with Shane Mumford.

While Carlton were overrun in the dying minutes against Collingwood last week, there were plenty of positives to take from matching it with one of the best in the competition.

Any good will that had been built up with that performance was shattered in the first half on Sunday evening.

A quarter-time spray from the coach didn't seem to have much effect on the team.

Bolton faces month of truth

Bolton faces month of truth With two strikes against Carlton coach Brendon Bolton, his future is set to be shaped over the next four rounds.

BRENDON Bolton admits Carlton ’ s nightmare season has pushed him to the brink, but he insists the Blues will stick to their rebuild plan. Earlier, Geelong stunned Port Adelaide in a fiery clash, Carlton pushed West Coast and St Kilda and GWS played out a dramatic draw.

GWS . To Blues fans : 'we feel their frustration'. Brendon Bolton maintains the rebuild message but concedes 'it hurts' not to have a win. Ultimately, too many were quiet for Carlton and Bolton will have to look closely at who he can bring in to the side after the Bulldogs were allowed to dominate

Even inspirational captain Patrick Cripps was well held, another victim of a tight tag from Matt de Boer.

Some sections of Carlton faithful had seen enough, calling for Bolton's sacking.



Bolton is now in his fourth season at the Blues, having overseen a decline in the number of wins every season during his tenure.

If his job is indeed under threat, the 40-year-old could probably rightly feel aggrieved at his charges.

The Blues were slaughtered in the tackle stats and gave away several goals through basic defensive mistakes.

If there were any high points to take back to Melbourne, Carlton kicked four of the last seven goals to keep the margin under 100 points, but as you probably guessed, positives were few and far between.

The Blues remain nailed to the bottom of the ladder ahead of their round 10 clash with St Kilda.
