Re: R13 Essendon v Hawthorn

Why do the 50/50's go against us and even some blatent frees (did the Ump think that Tippa doesn't have a neck? Or that giving the free would change the outcome?).

Ordinary.

Re: R13 Essendon v Hawthorn

Can someone tell Laverde to kick just 2 step further back from the man on the mark?

Re: R13 Essendon v Hawthorn

How the f*** did they f*** defending that last goal up???

Only one player in the goal square and no-one behind the goal line for an after the siren kick?

Re: R13 Essendon v Hawthorn

Being done over in the clearances despite the hitouts being level. TBell needs to lift and put the ball to advantage.

Also - the Hawks are textbook in finding a player to kick to - while we give up on the kick from CHB and still kick to a contest rather than make a lose player.

Re: R13 Essendon v Hawthorn

Begley or Bags out if Fanta gets in. Francis needs to play but his place is at risk. McNiece out. I can see Clarke out, but that would be a damn shame. Unfortunately McNiece isn't competing with Clarke, who is competing with Shiel. Is Brown ready? Hold your horses - we haven't seen who has managed ...

Re: R13 Essendon v Hawthorn

Under the pump: Dylan Clarke was very good against Carlton in his return to the senior side, but coach John Worsfold couldn't guarantee the midfielder a spot against the Hawks with other players returning. Ben McNiece and Mark Baguley are others who could be on the fringe. Medical room: Essendon is...

Re: 2019 Half Season Report Card

Ben ... you're getting soft in your advancing years. More than half of the best 25 have 7+ scores (13 players) in my mind, "good or "very good" Just under half (12 players) have scores of 5-6.5 ... just OK to adequate Only 3 or 4 are rated as poor. We should be in the Eight then. PS. Tippa comes in ...

Re: Coaching Dominoes about to Fall

Bolton gone. So Stephen Silvagni keeps his job while saddling Carlton with years of GWS rejects (who can't get a game with Carlton) but the coach who has had to endure the "old boys" interfering and making decisions as if the old days of Jack Elliott, the brown bags on a Tuesday and the printing fa...

Re: VFL Essendon 2019

Myers' performances in the VFL over the last two weeks absolutely confirm that this is his level of football. Thanks for your service mate and good luck in the future. A beast in the two's, a pussy in the firsts. Makes the Coaching team's decision re leadership group all the more bewildering I thou...

Re: Coaching Dominoes about to Fall

Last week we were putrid for 3/4 of the game ... and now this outburst of optimism? OK - the Coaching staff managed and DClarke to shut down Cripps which is something that nobody else has managed to do this year. But I'll hold off the praise and hosannas until we are firmly ensconced in the eight an...

Re: R11 Essendon v Carlton

Langers having another nice one today ](*,) Yeah - I think he is doing OK. McNiece much better this week after a very quiet Q1. Clarke seems to have run out of puff after 1/2 time. Hurley and Hooker dominating even though it's wet. McKernan having a shocker. Biggest stat is at 3/4 time we have 52 c...

Re: R11 Essendon v Carlton

For all their shittyness - Carlton is one point down at 1/4 time.

Clarke at least is a shining light... 6 disp and already taken out an opponent

If Worsfold did a Buckenara and admitted things had hit Rock Bottom this Sunday,........ :-"
Not gonna happen ... even when we just fall over the line Woosha talks us up as if we are world beaters.
