Re: VFL Essendon 2019

Trent Mynott has started the season very well. May get a debut game some stage this year. Laverde will probably need a couple of weeks to break into the seniors. Very hard to crack into the team at the minute.

Re: Where to Now for Langford and Laverde??

I would think that Langford would be rated as the 28th best player on our list (only Ham from the team vs North would probably rank lower). In front of him you would have Francis, Smith, Zaka, McKernan, Gleeson and Begley from players who didnt play yesterday. Laverde is probably around 29th. I can...

Re: R5 Essendon v North Melbourne

Impressive performance today. Shiel was sensational. Heppell, epic. Zachy was not as noticeable, but had the most disposals! Orazio was zippy. So good to watch in full flight. Guelfi was excellent in defence. Did a lot of good stuff. So too Redman. The defensive unit was great. Ambrose quite possibl...

Re: R6 Essendon v Collingwood (ANZAC Day)

I think we’re in for a good chance. As long as we play an attacking style of play.

Agree with those changes. Franger must come in if fit. Put him on De Goey. Ridley stuff, but we must play our best 22.

Re: Where to Now for Langford and Laverde??

Plenty of time on their hands. Ffs, I can’t understand why people keep trying to write off 18-22 year olds. Grow a brain and look at how most players careers go for the first 80 games.

Re: Is Essendon Better Suited to 666 than Other Teams?

666 is just a brief moment in time. There is more contributing factors in the other 95% game time. The slingshot is a point in time where players are free to roam all over the field. Given our forwards were backwards before running forwards means 666 is not part of the equation. Most of our goals v ...

Re: Zac Clarke

Interesting situation. Thought he played very well yesterday around the ground. Provided many linking passages of play. The dilemma is bringing Joe Daniher back this week. Do we play 2.5 ruckmen? If these c**** even remotely consider putting Daniher in the ruck this week, they should be shot. The *...

Re: New rules and scoring

Problem is,when a rule change does make sense,the most important ones needed to interpret them,can’t cope with the copious amount of changes built up over many season. Good commonsense umpiring pretty much goes by the wayside,no thanks to the AWFULL Commission and the Rules Commitee. LEAVE THE GAME...

Re: Vale Jim Daniher

Condolences to the entire Daniher dynasty. RIP Jim. Amazing that he was still working on the farm.

The town of Ungarie should re-named Danihertown.

Speed kills. Have to use our strength in this area. Looked so good streaming down the ground and burning off the opposition.

Like all of us, now is a time to enjoy the win. But please, let’s not fool ourselves. They walked through our defence in the last qtr to kick 6 goals. On the other hand, we scored against their defence which was missing Lever and May...two premier defenders. There was a lot of good signs neverthele...

Re: R3 Essendon v Melbourne

Considering Smack played with a hammie, Francis sustained a corkie and Mutch was off in Q1...this was an excellent win. Indeed. The effort was where it should be. This group can show what it can achieve if they collectively switch that light on. Maybe because we have a young group we will see incon...

Re: R4: Essendon Vs Lions

If Francis is gone, I’d bring in Zerk-Thatcher. Hipwood kicked 6 yesterday. Going to need someone with great athletic ability to go with him.
