Essendon Rumour Mill

Post by BenDoolan » Fri Jul 19, 2019 6:56 pm

I guess this is where things can be stated that are unconfirmed facts or “rumours”.

A little gimp told me that Darcy Parish has signed for 2 years. Can anyone confirm?

And the same little gimp said that Aaron Francis landed a good right hook on the chops of Johnny Worsfold.

Anyone else hear these sensational rumours??

Discussion on SEN yesterday about Ross Lyon not being at Freo next year. Callers and texters saying “Woosha to Freo - take it to the bank”!

Hmmm.

Do we get Rossy Lyon???

f*** no,send him to the Scum or Filth.They can share him if they want.

It’s bad enough hearing his Bullshit here,which I ignore most of the time.I almost feel sorry for Dorkers fans who want to see the back of him.None for the sycophants!

DO NOT HIRE LYON UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE!

Ross Lyon...underrated coach in my opinion but his pragmatic game plan is not right for Essendon....by a long way. However, if Carlton are dumb enough to let Teague go....

Lyon = NO PREMIERSHIPS!

Seriously Ben,whatever you think of Brad Hardie,I’ll say Mal Brown should coach us ahead of f****** Lyon!And after 1974,that’s saying something!

Do you really rate Lyon?I like you tonnes buddy,but if you say Yes to this,you seriously need your Head read! :roll

Well if Lyon does head this way, we would have to ensure that the expectations and obligations staff policies in their contracts are very watertight...

Here's another way to look at it.

Lyon took over at the Saints on the rise. They made it but not quite.
Lyon took over at the Dockers on the rise. They made it but failed.

If Lyon took over at the Bombers, on the rise, maybe 3rd time lucky?

Or, as I tend to view him, he's a failed opportunist. Harvs got shafted. [-X

Is Rossy Lyon an ex Essendon player? Did he train as a coach under Sheedy?

No he wasn't and No... but I think the West Australians in here may know what I was referring to...

Speaking of Cockburn,there’d be a crescendo Of their Supporters demanding Lyon’s head after today.

It better not happen before August 17. :shock:

I hate Ross Lyon with a passion.

He shafted Mark Harvey and is basically a club wrecker. Brought that hack Zac Dawson with him to Freo which basically cost them a flag.

He doesn't know how to develop young teams.

Stick with Woosha over him any day.

Woosha has at least played in 2 winning GFs and won one as a coach.

Why are we even speculating about the coaching position? We are winning games and playing a cool brand of footy with a massive amount of injuries to key players.

The players are just at the stage where they they are going to the next level and I ask why upset the apple cart now.

The selection committee needs a rocket though. How Hartley didnt play last night I just don't know.

Rumour is, his family have moved back to WA, and Woosha misses ‘home’.

Not sure of the rumour, but that is what is being speculated on the airwaves.
