Re: Joe Daniher's Groin, Calf, Moustache, Little Pinky

We would be absolutely laughing to get 2 x top 10 picks for JD. Can’t see it happening as I doubt our trade officials could deliver something this tasty. I’d much rather see JD excel elsewhere and be compensated than take the risk of another wasted year with us not getting his body right. If we cou...

Re: Essendon A Long Way off the Pace

Re: Houli I was watching Foxtel pre game coverage and that had this silly segment Bartlett and Sheedy playfully ribbing each other. Bartlett bought up Houli and Sheedy point blank said it was Hird who influenced him leaving us for “the Tiges”. That's absolutely untrue....It was Hird who went out of...

I put Richmond in the same category as Carlton and Collingwood and I hate them all equally. This weekend I think I hate Richmond even more than the other two.
Hey!!!!!

Re: Joe Daniher's Groin, Calf, Moustache, Little Pinky

The silence from Joe is deafening. Why wouldn't he just come and and say he is staying. I suspect the club is working with him on a long term, vastly improved deal. My tip is an announcement next week - 5 years, 800K pa with performance bonuses. His contract isn’t up for renewal until the end of ne...

Re: Our ruck crisis...

they should consider trying to mould james stewart into a ruckman. at 25 going on 26 i dont think he is going to make it as a KP forward. james stewart has great mobility and speed for a guy his size. i cant see how at very least he couldnt do better than zac clarke. Good point My deceased grandmot...

Ryder has nominated that Graveyard for ex-Bombers, St Kilda Oh well, there's just Boyd left. Ryder is a moron! He pointedly gave the club a swipe when he declared St Failure as his destination of choice. Thank f***! We need this bloke back like a returning STD. Yet it doesnt solve our crisis. We ha...

Re: Anthony William Watson McDonald-Tipungwuti

AMT is a marquis player and a "must retain" at any cost. Fantastic that he is staying! There was little to bring smiles to the Essendon faithful in 2016 - Walla did. There hasnt been a lot to get us out of our seats in the past few seasons - Walla did. All this talk of extra $ for 'Ambassador Player...

Jake Stringer is our most impactful midfielder.

Re: R16. Essendon V Swans

Oh yes Bellcho is the saviour of this team......PLEASE!!! :roll: Zac Clarke should never be played again. Zac merrett should never be made captain again. Our best mid-fielder (Jake Stringer) is also needed to play forward. Our best forward (Cale Hooker) is also needed to play back. In the last two g...

Re: Our ruck crisis...

Is Ryder a chance to return back to where it all started?? I certainly hope so! Pass for mine. Ryder showed glimpses for a season or two after a very slow burn....... Speaking of burning....the way he left Essendon was hardly his finest moment and still leaves a bad taste. Was always prone to flick...

Dear Bombertalkers Thanks for the open letter and your considered feedback. Bottom line is I have no idea. Harves, POP and Skip even less. The Truck is pretty switched on but told me last week that he wants to leave. Can’t blame him, we’re as fun to work for as watching a Kyle Langford chase. Like ...
