Time for Warner to move down the order or out of the team.

Khawaja to open with Harris.

Re: Open Letter to John Worsfold

So Woosha's guarantee of a future is based on... “non-stop communication with the executive at the Essendon Footy Club. We don’t just talk about something when it’s written about in the paper, we talk about it non-stop." WTF does that mean? While other coaches' futures are results-based, Woosha and...

Re: 2019 Elimination Final: Essendon v West Coast

Gleeson out. Calf. Ridley? McNiece maybe not after his last showing. I am not all that disappointed that Gleeson is not playing. I know that there is a lot of romantic support for Gleeson and his comeback, but there is no escaping the fact that he is very lightly built, easily pushed off the ball a...

Re: Hird

An absolute tragedy that we may not see another Hird running around in a Red and Black jumper. I can feel the blood boiling up inside of me when I think of the huge injustices meted out to James and his family as a result of the ASADA fiasco which is still biting us on the arse as we speak. I keep h...

Re: It’s Time...

Cannot help but to think that this is the judiciary fighting back against mandatory sentencing. They obviously do not like it and see it as an affront to their authority. About time they got into the real world where people just want to see justice done.

Re: Essendon Rumour Mill

Would be pretty useful if he could hold a mark. I doubt if I have ever seen a player spill so many marks after getting both mitts on the ball. And most of these have been when he has cleared the opposition.

Would not lose any sleep if he fkd off.

Re: Finals Run Up

Nudder do you ever think sometimes like me, that barring a decent Ruck we've already got all the players we need to be a top 4 side and beat any team on the Park? That right now, we don't need to draft anybody or buy anybody or change anything to do with the playersl. All we need is a coach who can...

I`d like to nominate Jofra (stupid name) Archer the west indian/come pommie fast bowler. Not for hitting Smith, but for his demeanour immediately after, turning round and walking back to his mark.

Re: Myths

If Essendon was a racehorse, they would have been swabbed and disqualified for the previous two weeks performances. These were not just 3 or 4 goal losses, but absolute thrashings. Also, these defeats were off the back of successive wins, a couple of which were outstanding. Then, we go Interstate, n...

Re: Vale Graham Polly Farmer

Fortunate to have seen him play esp. in the ‘63 Granny. Polly’s idea of a centre break was to grab the ball at the centre break and hand ball it 40 metres to an inflight Goggin who would bury it in Wade’s guts on the lead. He changed the whole concept of ruck work and was a revelation when he came t...
