Re: R8 Essendon v Sydney

As supporters who rightly or wrongly bought into the pre season hype we need to get a grip! Fair enough rnd 1 we were shit and deserved to be blasted, against the saints we were marginally better, then we hit some decent form albeit against average opposition, we get robbed against Collingwood in An...

Re: R6 Essendon v Collingwood (ANZAC Day)

I would bring in smith for Myers... or maybe bags, Zaha for Ham and and prob leave the rest,.. maybe Franca for Rids or Laverde for parish.. but happy if it’s just the two changes! This will undoubtedly be our biggest test of the season so far! We’re a big chance and it will take a big game from our...

Re: David Myers

What has he ever done to be an automatic starter in the 22??? He should be dropped to the reserves and not considered for selection until he has DOMINATED at least 4 games!! If he can’t do that he’ll never do it in the AFL!! Just a list clogger who teases every now and again that he could be a dece...

Re: Irving Mosquito

Love the look of this fella!! Love that he supports us and that hawthorn didn’t end up taking him.. hopefully he turns into an awesome player and hawthorn can kick themselves for the same amount of time we’ve been kicking ourselves over Myers before Cyril... hopefully Myers plays with misquito ind a...

Re: Zac Clarke

But we don’t need him in the forward line... we have Joe tippa raz Stewart/brown then any mix of Langford laverde bags zaha Stringer or even shiel... not to mention the young guys like begs ect.... Clarke is purely back up to tbc... hopefully even challenges him for the role... is he up to it grassy??

Re: DYLAN SHIEL

Great effort to get Sheil in!! Give us a fantastic midfield group capable of going toe to toe with the best in the competition... I feel like two first rounds is a heavy price to pay but we’ve been calling on dodoro to get an Agrade mid for years now so we really couldn’t afford to let the opportuni...

Re: Vale the Mayor of Fumbledon

At his best Trav was a decent player... super quick, he had genuine line breaking pace and handy in front of goals... unfortunately as I think we can all agree we didn’t see enough of his best and over the last two years especially he seemed to go backwards with poor decision making and poor disposa...

Re: How Does Our Midfield Rate with Shiel

Agree with the points above. I think Langford will be a really good player... I think McGrath will become the better of the two players long term... I think Dave “Long left boot” Myers must be looking at our list and wondering if he’ll get a game this year!!! I believe like many others I’ve said mos...

Re: Young fringe players... who will make it?

I’b been most impressed by Francis and Redman so far, I believe they both look like genuinely classy players. I like the looks of Ridley, Begley and Mutch but the jury’s still out Guelfi has a great year but where do we see him playing long term? Mid? Half fwd? Half back? Not sure he’d be in our bes...

Re: Skip Bin Ordered @ Tullamarine

I am really wondering how we are in the mix for players like Parker and Shiel while only off loading (at this point in time) one player on a sizable packet - ie Goddard. Surely the salary cap must be pretty tight with guys like Heppell, Daniher, Hurley and Hooker all on $700K plus. (Correct me if I...
