Re: R13 Essendon v Hawthorn

Pretty ordinary last ten minutes... almost let them steal it from us.. but up to then a lot of good signs. McKenna and Saad both great off the backline. Parish really taking that next step.

Re: R11 Essendon v Carlton

We fell back into too much cutesy pie stuff that quarter, which often came unstuck. Just lucky Carlton are even worse than us and can't kick straight.

Re: R11 Essendon v Carlton

We played a bit better that quarter, going a bit more direct and not trying to do as many cute little roundabout things. A terrible game overall with terrible skills on both sides and nothing even vaguely resembling a decent game plan.

Re: Where to from here?

Even when we made a belated better effort, we still tended to just kick and hope. There just doesn't seem to be any system at all.

Re: R10 Essendon v Richmond (DREAM TIME)

Hard to judge anything much as it is so wet. Parish and Heppell handling the conditions okay. Hard to see where the goals are going to come from.

Re: The Catastrophe Part II

Can't argue with any of that, Windy.

An embarrassing loss against the bottom team.

Another season down the gurgler.

Re: R8 Essendon v Sydney

We need to really lift in the last quarter, or this is going to be a very embarrassing loss to the bottom team without their biggest star.

Re: R8 Essendon v Sydney

Fanta-see-a and Zerrett both having good games, but overall we still look very sloppy, especially considering we are playing against the bottom team!

Re: R8 Essendon v Sydney

We look lazy, just bombing it anywhere and hoping for the best.

If the Swans were a decent side and/or kicked straight, we would be 3 or 4 goals down already.

Re: R7 Essendon v Geelong

I was busy with my daughter's birthday party and missed the first half. Judging by what I saw in the second half, we were very lucky not to be beaten by far more. Terrible skills. Almost no handballs went to advantage (and kicking wasn't much better). We only managed one goal per quarter and even th...

Re: R6 Essendon v Collingwood (ANZAC Day)

We had so many chances in that last quarter, but blew it.
Too many stupid mistakes by us and a few dodgy umpiring decisions that didn't help either.

Re: R6 Essendon v Collingwood (ANZAC Day)

Sounds weird, but I actually think we played better in the first quarter than in the second. The difference was, in the first quarter nothing much came off for us, whereas in the second we got one or two things to work, especially that last second goal to Joe! We are losing a lot of the one on one c...

A good win, but against weak opposition.

Anzac Day will be a big test of where we're at.

Re: R3 Essendon v Melbourne

Not exactly a convincing win. Lots of errors still. Only won because Melbourne were even worse. But oh well a win is a win I suppose.

Re: R3 Essendon v Melbourne

When we hold our nerve and keep attacking it pays off at least sometimes, but when we go back into our shell and try to defend we panic and start stuffing things up.

Re: R3 Essendon v Melbourne

Not hard to see why both teams are languishing at the bottom of the ladder at the moment. Terrible standard game. Both teams trying desperately to create something and get themselves off the bottom of the ladder, but skill errors and positioning errors galore. A few things started to work for Melbou...
