Re: f*** off..c***

There is now an investigation under way to determine was it COVID 19 which is banned, or COVID 19.5 which is not yet banned but may be. In, addition, because the team has won their first 2 games, it is obvious that there is something illegal going on at Windy Hill which will involve a 2 year invest...

Re: 2020 Leadership Group

Where's Zerrett? I can understand Daniher, Fantasia & Myers (retired) not being in the leadership group but vice-captain Merrett not selected is baffling. I believe he has been injured & missed some training sessions but the club, as usual, has not said anything about this..... Even if Merrett is in...

Re: Anniversary Reflections - 1965 ESSENDON PREMIERSHIP TEAM

I believe Coleman called umpires “white leghorns”
What Coleman, players, officials & Essendon supporters called Casper is unprintable here. Probably cost us another premiership.

Re: Essendon A Long Way off the Pace

It was plainly obvious from yesterday that ALL OVER THE GROUND DEFENSIVE PRESSURE is how finals are won. That's one area we have to dramatically have to improve. Such things as blocking all avenues for opponents to switch play from the back line. Having a goal keeper at all stoppages in our back hal...

Eliminitis

For those of you who were "Living In The 70's" will, no doubt, realise the the dreaded Elimintis disease has returned to Windy Hill. In the years from 1970 to 1982 we played in 5 final series - for 5 losses, all Elimination Finals played at Waverley. 1972 Loss to St.Kilda, 1973 Loss to St.Kilda, 197...

Complete Review Of The Whole Club

I'm absolutely livid, sick & tired of the mess this once proud football club has become. Complete mediocrity. Last year 2 - 6, this year 3 - 5. Barely any improvement. Where's the passion from the players. Saw Heppell & Myers having a laugh after the game tonight. Completely unacceptable from the so...

Re: Dyson Heppell

I’ve said for ages that Heppell, nice as he is, is not true skipper material. I also said, young though he was, Z.Merrett should’ve been made skipper... He is a trier but his foot skills are poor, too many turnovers & today not even making the distance from a set shot from 30 meters, when a captain...

Re: Coleman Tribute

Not only was Coleman a great player but he was also a brilliant coach. My dad always marveled at his extraordinary talents. It was stated the fans often changed ends at Windy Hill each quarter to get a closer view of his high marking. I didn't see him play but as a young teenager in the early 60's I...

Hurley & Hooker should be in the leadership group instead of Myers & Daniher for a start. Heppell & co. have to "grow a pair" & show some INSPIRATIONAL & LETHAL lea...

Re: Hang Your Heads in Shame so called EFC supporters

I was at that game in '79 against Fitzroy. Cold, wet and miserable and the team had clearly lost any respect they may have once had with the coach...who was only part-time. A few years later Kevin Sheedy was booed at Windy Hill for leaving Van Der Haar on the bench when we were being pantsed in our...
