Re: Essendon VFL 2018

I haven’t seen a lot of the VFL side playing this year, but what I have seen, Brandon Zerk-Thatcher is a bloody good player. Where position does he play? He was billed as the next Dustin Fletcher at one stage... Hard to really categories positions these days. But he is a tall defender who roams the...

Transformation complete. Jobe like in his style of play. Great game last night. Amazing what happens when you give a guy a bit of time to develop... No doubt he played a good game on Friday. Let me know when he does it against a good contested ball team. You mean the moment he does it against a mid...

Re: Ess vs the Piss and Poos

We lost the contested possession by 29. Until we get some decent inside midfielders (or the current crop improve) we will simply be making up the numbers.

Only just read about Parish’s efforts yesterday. Obvious inclusion for Myers. So Parish in (instead of my suggested Mutch).
What did Parish get up to?

Re: R16 ESSENDON v the filth.

I for one was very proud of our lads today. Showed a lot of heart. Ditto. They simply ran out of legs in the last 10 minutes. One major concern that has developed however is McGrath...specifically, his reluctance to kick the ball. When he gets the ball his first instinct is to handball backwards, r...

Player in form slump in first 5 rounds...better trade him. Bombertalk at its best. =D> =D> Again, with feeling, its not about the guy's form but his trade value and age Do you want a team with a flag winning midfield? Then having 6 tall defenders will not deliver this. It is clear we lack a midfiel...

Slow switching

I think what is hurting us the most at the moment (in what is a fiercely contested category) is our slow switching of play. If you can't switch quickly, then you shouldn't be switching at all. If the quick switch of play is not an option then the play is to go long up the line to advantage, or ideal...
