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...

Re: Dyson Heppell

Can f*** right off back to Leongatha where he can laugh to his hearts content. Looks like Goldilocks & plays like Goldilocks. Worst disp...

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...

Re: R1 Essendon v Greater Western Sydney

I'm loathe to write off this side after 1 game but i can make observations as to what I've seen in the JLT & yesterday. FITNESS: Our readiness to play yesterday was very low. This fitness staff, who presided over a pre-season where we had above average soft tissue injuries at training have much to a...

Re: R1 Essendon v Greater Western Sydney

I believe Stewart has a groin injury. That's why he wasn't considered. I'm concerned with Baguley's selection, he was ok last year as a defensive forward but his form in JLT was abysmal, (like a few others). However he deserves a chance based on last year. Guelfi is a goer but I think he has to impr...

While I mostly agree with the sentiments here, I like to win everything we do but in reality who remembers the pre season games anyway. However this year is surely a make or break year for guys such as Baguley, Myers & Zaka who have been a big part of this current 15 years of mediocrity. Guys like H...
