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...

Re: Ranking the mids

Jake Stringer is our most impactful midfielder.

Your list otherwise ranks the rest accurately.

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: R15 Essendon v GWS

Putting Hooker forward is the most practical option......my fear is we will just be sacrificing him to the injury gods.

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...

Re: Open Letter to John Worsfold

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 ...

Re: R10 Essendon v Richmond (DREAM TIME)

... we pick Francis, Stringer, Laverde, Begley & McKernan, all over 6'4", and just Walla as a crumber. 1.93=6ft4". They list Begley at 188cm, Laverde at 191, Francis and Stringer at 192cm. McKernan is 196cm. I'm 186cm and have stood next to Begley. I was taller. He's also at 97kg. I suspect some nu...

Would love to see the bold move of giving this kid a go - we have nothing to lose.

Re: R11 Essendon v Carlton

I enjoyed Tbell’s effort against the tigers. It was a much improved game from him. His goal came at a time when we were missing them from everywhere. Understand he’s not elite but he’s our best uninjured option right now. We have to back him in He is only "our best uninjured option right now" becau...

Do you think Carlton will let get away with a bumbling exhibition like last night and not take complete joy in beating us? We should all load up on Carlton - they'll be agai...
