Re: R1 Essendon v Greater Western Sydney

Absolutely appalling. The last quarter we looked like witch's hats.
It should have been 100pts, except that they slacked off a bit and let us kick a couple of late ones.

Looks like we are going to have to be "patient" for quite a bit longer yet!

Re: R1 Essendon v Greater Western Sydney

Just painful to watch. Same old crap we've been watching for 15 years now. Fumbling, missing targets, dysfunctional forward structure, failing to convert opportunities. Inside 50 marks, according to Channel 7, are running 6 to 1 against us. I think they are being kind to us, as I don't even remember...

Re: Heppell asks for patience

I think we've all been very patient, but nineteen years is a bloody long time, enough is enough. As for all these lame excuses about tweaking, adapting to a new game plan blah blah blah.... ](*,) It's footy, not rocket science. It's simple. Kick it to a teammate (not over his head, not to his oppone...

Based on yesterday's game, Josh Green appears to be a very good VFL player.

But he is crap at AFL level.
This.

He looks good sneaking goals at this level, but contributes nowhere near enough at AFL level. So long as Orazio can stay fit, there really isn't a place for Green.

Re: Josh Green Delisted?

He looked to be on one leg in that last quarter. Most of his goals came from sitting quietly at the back of the pack.

Played an excellent game in the VFL Elim Final. Aerial supremacy.
His work on the ground ball was equally impressive...
He looked a cut above the rest. All class.

Re: Ess V Pout Adelaide

As Stringer just said, the first ten minutes after half time will be crucial. If we can hold them off then we should be okay from there.

Re: Ess V Pout Adelaide

We look up and about; they look flat.
Not sure how long that will last but I'm enjoying it so far.
Great to see that berk Kochie squirming.
Laverne and Leunberger both playing as if their career depends on it (and it probably does).

Re: Skip Bin Ordered @ Tullamarine

Not sure whether he jumped or was pushed, or just fell in, but anyway I think it's the right decision.

He was great for us in our hour of need, but time to move on now.

Re: Rating the Season

3/10 Not making the finals means it has to be a fail, so I started thinking 4/10. But then I remembered that, having made the finals last year and then topped up with the three S, the stated expectation was that we would not only make the finals but win one . There were even rumblings about a possib...

Re: Ess Vs Reichmond

We've certainly had our chances but can't quite get the ball to bounce our way. Next goal or two crucial. If they get three or four goals in front then the floodgates might open.

Re: Clanger Hangar 2018

I feel like the problem in the Hawthorn game was not so much the NUMBER of clangers, but the SEVERITY of them. Falling over at the wrong moment, stepping over the goalsquare line, dropping simple chest marks, etc. The kind of errors you expect to see in an Under 14 school game, not in professional A...

Re: Ess vs the Piss and Poos

Disappointing to lose, but I liked the game. We had a real crack. We are far from our best 22 at the moment, but the “fill ins” are doing a good job. I too, like what is building at the club. I said it at the time, and it will play out this way, losing to f****** Carlton is going to cost us finals....

Francis did good. Good delivery (85% accuracy) and noticeable 1%ers
Didn't look out of place at all.
Hope they persist with him.
