    Round 6 Non MFC games

    Oh how the dees have destroyed my faith in them. Why do I firmly believe that Carlton’s first win for the season will be us in our typical don’t show up game.

    Is Goodwin the right guy....

    Collingwood is reaping this now, funnily their players are saying that bucks is 'letting them play more' as opposed to the seemingly very restrictive 'my way or the highway' philosophy he used to have.
  3. I've wondered this in the last two years, it's almost as though we put so much effort into winning at Etihad that we forgot how to play our home ground!

    Petracca to miss Essendon Game

    He will pick up some superbug in the hospital and never play for us again. If he gets back he will be a shell of his former self

    Which Team can we beat on current Form?

    I don’t think we can beat Carlton. They have beaten us or given us a run the last few years even when they have been horrible. They are of those teams, Luke most in the comp actually who know when they put pressure on us we crumble.

    Taking out the fend-off

    Yes, Dusty never gets pinned for incorrect disposal, Selwood always gets the high contact, the reigning premier always seems to get the 50/50 free kicks. It's just the way it all seems to work. We don't have any stars who get the good treatment, we won't ever be one of those top teams. Like someone else has said, it's like we were born into poverty, we will never break out of it unfortunately, not matter what we do. Just go with it is what I have learned, nothing will change. I just get to vent on here now and then or else I'd have kicked the dog by now (be a better kick though than any player we have could do!)

    Taking out the fend-off

    He actually goes at the player who is trying to tackle him which throws out their timing as every other player tries to get away from oncoming players. When our players have tried the fend off then do it going away from the player which is a lot easier to get at, hence they get nailed. Players should either go low as said earlier and just let him get his handball away (which is currently coached against as they want a tackle to have no disposal) but this is better than him fending off and then running another 5 metres and kicking it 60. I would also suggest the drop their knees when coming in to tackle, the fend off would then get them in the neck/head and they (should) get a free kick. This though would mean being willing to take a hit which would no doubt hurt and none of our players are willing to hurt for the team. Maybe other club players may though.
  8. That is the issue isn’t it. Given a better night with injuries last year and we beat them. They have only gone forward since that night. It’s not that we go backwards, we just never go forwards

    Changes Vs Essendon

    In: a gameplan Out: players that cant follow a gameplan I believe that means we will forfeit
  10. I don’t agree. Drugs make you feel good. Following melbourne has never made me feel good.

    Is Goodwin the right guy....

    It will be ok. He will come up with another theme of the week in his desperate attempt to be relevant in the club. Is being laughed at by the players.

    Post Match Discussion - Round 5

    We actually look like a team that doesn’t have a coach. There is no structure, no gameplay, no anything. Does gawn actually do any work with our midfielders? He doesn’t seem to know who is on our team, especially when it is in the forward line. The backline all fly for a ball like it is kick to kick in the schoolyard. The forward line? Well on paper we have one but I am yet to actually one out on the field. Either the players all hate the coach and refuse to do what he says or he isn’t telling them anytihing. I actually believe it is both.

    Post Match Discussion - Round 4

    I have a probably very left field question. Are our footballs pumped up enough at training? Round 1 especially, but also still happening after round 4, we seem to run under more balls than any other time I can remember. Maybe our players are just that dumb that they can't read the flight but I hoping it is the balls we use...
