Re: Who's on modified training?

You can’t sack an entire playing list,but if it’s not the Fitness Team to Blame,I just wonder if the players actually do the required stretching excercises,amongst other physical preparations PROPERLY?! :shock: The fitness team are responsible for preparing the players during the off season and dur...

Re: Dyson Heppell

After tonite - I am firmly in the non-Hepp camp. Laughing like a giggly schoolgirl on a date after Myers missed ... just isn't my idea of captaincy. Yep, goneski. Can f*** right off back to Leongatha where he can laugh to his hearts content. Looks like Goldilocks & plays like Goldilocks. Worst disp...

Dear John You may recall my letter to you from this time last year in which I rather bluntly asked you to just go. It seems that the letter did not make it to your desk. As such, please kindly accept the following note Go, now, don't look back give us back our goddamn football club Cheers Windy ps ...

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...

Re: Please explain

Too many nice guys and not enough honest mongrels who will tell them (and us) how it is. Dead right. Who are the mongrels in our side? 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...

WTF!! Maybe we need to start recruiting based on IQ.
If we were recruiting based on IQ, then Langford & Guelfi surely wouldn't be on the list.........

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...

Re: Over it...

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...

Re: Praccy Matches

Bloody hopeless first quarter, scum 9 points up.
15 inside 50's to our 6. Mid-field non existent.

Hopefully the 2nd quarter will be a vast improvement.
