Re: Round 2 June. Swans

Well, FMD. Why do games v Sydney always come down to the last seconds? Sick of it! ‘Bout time we beat those utter bastards up there. They live on charity from the umps FFS, but we also play dumb footy when we least need it (something that’s been around for a decade and a half). Love Franger, but WT...

Re: Best 22 in 2020

Although both are excellent off Half Back is it time to start looking at one of McKenna or Saad as a midfielder? Mature bodies and good pace would be handy. We also seem to have enough depth to cover one of them if they move up the ground - Cutler being another addition to the HB type. I would love ...

Re: R23 Essendon v Collingwood

Clarke to go to Treloar Shiel v Pendles - see who can do the most damage Zerritt v Adams - as above Mitch Brown to kick 5 and start a remarkable run as he becomes our finals hero Grundy to be BOG by a street against an underdone TBell. Would have been BOG by a block if Z Clarke was playing. Bombers ...

No no no... [-X The noise I have heard is that he just doesn't do the rehab work - has never gotten fully fit during his time back in WA.

Re: R20 Essendon v Port Adelaide

Can't wait to see Ambrose v Dixon - Paddy is as hard as a cats head and will not be intimidated by Dixon! Love the way he tackles to hurt when he gets the opportunity - has had a very good season just quietly doing his job - I would imagine he would be doing well in the voting by the coaches. Hopefu...

Re: R20 Essendon v Port Adelaide

Lycett is in form and Ryder is talented. So ZClarke will be retained, just get him to nullify the opposition ruck. 64 hit outs to 29 v Witts. Rather go with Hartley around the ground who can provide something useful dropping back into defence or sneaking forward. We’re gonna get done in the taps an...

There is a place for him in our best 22. He is one of our most accurate kicks for goal. Like the way he goes about it and is a very good club man. Love to see you with a medal around your neck sometime in the future. Keep up the good work Mitch.
Can he teach Laverde??

Re: Who is the most improved for 2019?

I don't get all the arguments in this thread about how to assess a player in the first year on improvement. Bemusing.... Redman for me - is getting better with every game and his hardness at the ball (and the man) is something we have lacked for some time. They like to get the ball in his hands as h...

Re: R17 Essendon v North Melbourne

Z Clarke can go - where I don't care. Just play Smack in the ruck for the full game - we got smashed at the clearances and the majority of that was by Allir - he worked Clarke out so quick - the only time we got back into the game was when Smack went into the ruck. Don't get all misty eyed because C...

Re: Our ruck crisis...

If we do lose Draper, With the move towards mobile rucks, it would be better to reinvent JD as a Marshall type ruck, if we ever get JD back. I think JD could be a great ruck - natural footballer with good skills that would be hard to stop when he drifts forward. Playing ruck would have him more inv...

Re: R16. Essendon V Swans

Well, the Swan's preferred Ruck Callum Sinclair will be sitting on the sideline for 2-3 weeks. So the Swans will either pick Darcy Cameron (played a total of 1 AFL game) or Sam Naismith (hasn't played AFL since 2017)... alternately they may run Aliir Aliir in the ruck like they successfully did on ...

Re: R13 Essendon v Hawthorn

You could not drop Clarke - did a job and did it well. I think we need a hard nosed tagger in the team regardless - too often we have left the best mids to go it alone against our mids and see who does the most damage. [-o< [-o< [-o< Clarke to O'Meara would be the option. Push Zaka out if required -...

Re: R11 Essendon v Carlton

BD, you must hate TBC with a passion. You've suggested he be dropped on a weekly basis, even without nominating a replacement Ruck. I don't think he's been poor at all. Where are BZT and Ridley going to play? With Hooker, Hurley, Ambrose & Redman keeping their spots I don't see a place for them. Fo...
