Re: Snelling.

I think what Windy is saying is that Snelling and Smith have similar tenacious attributes that every team needs. While one is in the middle, the other is causing damage up forward and vice-versa. Snelling has a touch of De Goey about him. Early days, but signs are promising. That is exactly what I ...

Re: VFL Essendon 2019

Langford future captain? Barely component enough to get a game. Give old Filthy his crack pipe back ffs. Well, in 5 - 7 years that may change. All I’m saying at the moment is that he is emerging as a player now. He’s just entered that 50 - 100 game period. Most players start having an impact then. ...

In my book,they should still Target the Big End Of Town. They need to shed the 1000’s they somehow Idiotly ensnared in the same economic reform packages. That’s essentially what stuffed ‘em at the Election.Plus Bowen’s Arrogant Stupidity and now the fool wants to contest the ALP leadership! :roll: ...

Re: Coaching Dominoes about to Fall

I think he’ll go well beyond this year. We are seeing the seeds of success coming through. The young kids are maturing together. This is a good sign. Guys entering the 50-100 game bracket are starting to look as if they belong. And they’re having an impact. Even guys with less experience are doing a...

Thank goodness for Langers and Parish. Both have been sensational. This is the youth that will carry us in the future.

Re: The fitness staff, the coach, the saga, the vibe, Brexit blah blah blah

Let’s leave Joe aside then. McGrath? A number 1 pick would want to be a very good mid-fielder at the very least by the time he is 23. He has stagnated a little though. I don’t k ow if you watch much other footy, some of your opinions would suggest you don’t, but McLuggage has gone straight past him...

Well, there are a lot of ifs, but... If Joe Daniher wasn’t ruined by dopey medicos, he could be up there winning the Coleman. 65 goals in 2017, AA, Crichton Medallist. He can play. Except, the club can’t make him play. Orazio Fantasia is a gun...when he’s not constantly sitting on the sidelines wit...

Re: The fitness staff, the coach, the saga, the vibe, Brexit blah blah blah

Not excuses, they’re legitimate issues! Coaches and fitness staff are a major problem. The list isn’t getting the proper care and development. Has been an issue for a long time. Joe Dan has been mismanaged. We’re crippling blokes like Smith, Shiel and Stringer. Won’t be long before Saad pops a hammy...

Re: Where to from here?

I think we did well when we copped draft bans. We got Zach Merrett at #26 and Fantasia #55. Both Jets. Then in 2014, Langford #17 and Laverde #20. Both are emerging. 2015, Parish #5, Francis #6, and Mason Redman #30. All 3 are excellent prospects. Parish is having a break out season. Franger can be ...
