Cameron and Viney

Jeremy and Jack are both restricted free agents at the end of the year and both would slot nicely into our best 22 Whether or not Daniher makes it and stays at Essendon is beside the point. We should be targeting both the above mentioned players to plug glaring holes in our list. Key forward and bul...

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

As you all probably know, Hibberd has copped a knee injury. Not sure how serious but was apparently carried off the track by trainers. Has done his ACL before as well as suffering a dislocated kneecap. Not looking good and you gotta feel for the guy. Injury incurred after being tackled by Mutch, a w...

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...

Re: Which Three Players Do You Hope Will Emerge as Best 22 in 2020

Fact is, we are a squad of question marks. You could probably mount a case for a dozen players who could step up, should step up...but then again, .....We Are Essendon

Which Three Players Do You Hope Will Emerge as Best 22 in 2020

Given the lack of incoming quality following last years draft and trade period, I suspect we will need to find at least three players who will transition from peripheral squad player to regular first teamer. Who are your three hopefuls? ( not including returning injured players who are already estab...

Re: Anniversary Reflections - 2000 ESSENDON PREMIERSHIP TEAMS

In Jobe Watson and James Hird we have perhaps two of the most tragic figures in football.

Both the victims of a gross miscarriage of justice.

Re: Anniversary Reflections - 1985 ESSENDON PREMIERSHIP TEAM

An unbelievably great team. Was there and already celebrating the win before the first bounce. Putting aside different playing styles from the mid 80s to the 2000 season, I have often wondered which of the two great premiership sides (85 & 00) would win a head to head battle. Imagine the matchups; W...

Heppell Dreds The Upcoming Season

Hats off, or is it hair off, to the Skipper. Raised nearly $300,000 towards the bushfire relief fund for finally removing his trademark dreds. To be honest, he now looks like a proper mongrel on parole and for mine, I reckon the new look may release his inner bastard. That can only be a good thing f...
