Re: Do Hibberd and Townsend Represent an New Hard Nut Squad Strategy?

I thought it was just a knee knock! :shock: Good old EFC - some things never change Essendon midfielder Mitch Hibberd has undergone minor knee surgery to repair damage he suffered to his meniscus during a training drill last week. General manager of football Dan Richardson said Hibberd will return t...

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

If he has gone overseas - what the hell is he doing in Coffs Harbor then? I am pretty sure that JD is the person under the bucket hat in photo 10 (unless Brown snuck along for a free holiday). https://www.essendonfc.com.au/albums/554865/training-at-coffs-harbour-january-20?modal=true&type=gallery&pl...

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

It's easy to be critical about our forward line and some of the Club's decisions, but really it's just so difficult to know what to do. If everyone was injury free and playing to their talent we would be worry free. Daniher, Fantasia, Stringer, Walla, Snelling, McKernan, Stewart, Smith, Laverde, Be...

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

God help us if Joe goes missing in 2020. A forward line made up of Smack and Hooker does not excite. Hooker has a nagging hip and Sean is good for two decent games a year. Both as slow as treacle and offer zero forward line pressure. Gown was looking OK before injury and Stewart may be available (a...

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

I doubt Cameron will leave unless GWS wins the cup this year. I recon they have this and the next season to do.

It would be nice to have a first round pick though. what is it - 5 years in the decade without a first round pick?

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

And on the same day as this report re Daniher’s trip to Ireland The Age run a report stating we are heavily into Jeremy Cameron. If Joe’s OP is chronic, as it would seem to be, then Essendon’s failure to secure couple of first rounders from Sydney will be severely scrutinized. Imagine getting Camer...

Dunno what's more hazardous to your health - volcanoes or supporting this f****** club!

But Seriously. Glad too hear that you are OK. Geez this off season has been dangerous for some of the regulars in here.

Re: bush fires in nsw. I am in Merimbula.

Yes we had ten mills of rain, just enough to wash the ash of the garden and veggies. More in other places but not enough we've heard about to put any fires out.

Re: 2020 - Dead Before it Started??

Am I alone in also thinking its time for Dodoro to piss off? Two generations of Essendon footballers have just about come and gone under his recruiting management and we haven’t produced an elite player in that time. Aside from maybe 2 F/S pick ups in Jobe and Joe (maybe elite is a stretch in Joe’s...

Re: Predictions for 2020

Will keep our record intact by coming home to round 22 with a wet sail and either just making or just missing out of the 8 by percentage. If making the 8, will lose our final by just under 100 points.

Top goal kicker - Tippa
Most improved - Tossup between Mitch Brown, Hartley or Zac Clarke

Re: Draft

Nor so much draft related but Supplemental Stupid Draft Spots... Apparently we are keeping a spot on our list empty so we can fill it (if needed) through the supplemental selection period or mid-season draft. I suspect that may have more to do with salary cap tightness than "the opportunity to draft...

Re: Ned Cahill - pick 56

Would love to buy into this “steal of the draft” thinking but let’s be honest, you could throw a blanket over dozens of non-heralded players and surely one will emerge as a gun footballer. A steal, is more likely a highly touted player who slides from early to late selection. I am not sure if Cahil...
