Where do you think we'll finish?

Talk about everything Essendon. Past, Present and Future if it's about the Bombers this is the place to be.

Not a bad call. I reckon 8th. Either way we will be smashed in Adelaide, Sydney, or Brisbane. Unless of course we get lucky with a COVID re—schedule.

Edit: if COVID- we will just get smashed in Melbourne.

Tiggers v GWS will be a critical game.

We of course, need to win what we can, Swans and doggies the difficult games. suns and pies the danger games.

I get the feeling we were a bit complacent last week, maybe this week too. Parish needs to break the tag, or his teammates need to do it for him, or take his role. We need to kick straighter.Gee, that'd help d'ya think.

That was last year mate,when Perth Actually made the Finals in a reduced season,got an 8 point lead in the 1st Semi against our bogey Club West Perth,but didn’t quite get the Smell of Blood in our Nostrils.We got too carefull with the breeze at our backs,instead of going for the Kill! #-o

Would not surprise me to see us lose every game from here on in. We are dead in the water. Our young blokes are tired and running out of legs. Many are just going through the motions. We are simply not up to playing finals yet.

We are a good couple of years away from finals yet. We need to cut the dead wood, draft well, spend the next year or two getting our systems right, learning the craft, learning our systems and most of all getting to know how other team mates play. We have a good couple of years in front of us to understand our systems and get it right. We have exceeded all expectations this year, really playing finals is a pipe dream. Although, some Essendon people thought we would play finals and that we were actually much better than where we actually are, we are still inconsistent. And; its all o.k.

Big pre-season, hope our blokes get into the gym, muscle up, get more strength and get ready for 2022. Another development year. If we keep doing all the right things our time will come.

I don't really care where we finish as long as we don't play the sort of shit we saw 2nd half Sunday

At least have a crack ... and while we are about it ...sort out how we are going to play Merrett, Shiel and Parish in the same midfield

Shades of ‘77/78,rather than ‘81,I am sorry to say. There was signs of brilliance from the young up and comers,but terribly disappointing slumps ended both seasons,as it did,either side of the 2 I mentioned.We just couldn’t sustain our efforts for the Whole Season.#-o

Really Hope I’m wrong here,but I fear Not!

Any key players cop any injury likely to persist,wrap ‘em for the season and get ‘em ready for next year!

Little Hirdy looks like getting another year as a B class rookie.

Some say after watching him play in the past few weeks, as a small fwd he has improved a lot. Kicked several goals.
Another year, he's worth pursuing with who knows what he may show?

How are we 10th while f****** losers like the Eagles are 7th?

Those early season close ones were always going to cost us in the end.

I think we will finish bottom six. I hope we can get some good draft picks. Cut some of the dead wood.

Honestly this list was completely over-rated. Not as good as many thought. We still have a couple of years to get our team together.
We still have a long way to go. Yes we show promise but, but, but, we are very inconsistent and our younger players have done well this year to stay on the park. Anyone with eyes can see our blokes are tired and have run out of legs.

Last night's game against Shitney showed all our cracks. We just don't have it yet. Shitney are miles ahead of us in their rebuild. We are probably two years behind them. Yes once again, the umpiring was pathetic and hard to read and inconsistent.

We are least two years away maybe three from being top six. Until then we need to get the team right on so many levels.
Many of us old fogeys may not be around to see the rise of the Bombers again and can only hope it happens in our time.

Who rated it? We all thought we'd be bottom 4 start of the year.

f****** rort this competition. That f***-wit ump should be getting the f****** week. Had he blown the f****** whistle immediately he was tackled (he feigned a handball - THAT’s PRIOR OPPORTUNITY YOU FUMB f***), then the “dangerous tackle” would not even have happened. Absolute rubbish from an absolute rubbish system.

It's not beyond the realms of possibility that we finish 7th. Need to win of course.
