    Go and get Gaff!

    Goodness me, this bloke is a jet and will contribute to our side amazingly. Today he was absolutely pivotal in so much of the Eagles play. We desperately need a player of Gaff’s qualities and skills. Go and get Gaff.

    Round 23 Excitement

    I’ve already booked my airfare to Melbourne for the GWS clash.

    GAMEDAY - Round 22

    Shitty day to wear a scarf over here. 25 degrees.

    GAMEDAY - Round 22

    It’s simple. We silence the crowd with a dominant first quarter. The Eagles supporters will sway the umps if we don’t get a good start. It’s imperative we score heavily in the first quarter. Silence the crowd, we win the game.. must kick straight.

    Watts Dropped from Port

    Is it the knowledge (albeit biased) that we most likely are a better team than them?

    Watts Dropped from Port

    I want to message my Port supporting mates but I’m figuring I should keep my powder dry until tomorrow arvo.

    Match Preview and Team Selection - Round 22

    You are such a boring contributor to this site. And you wonder why others have a go at you. Just talk footy for a change rather than baiting people like me.

    Go and get Gaff!

    All the latest articles are just rumour. If anything, I feel more comfortable with the rumour we’ve apparently eased off the chase. Smokescreen.

    If we beat Meth Coast I will ...

    Yeah but I feel it a little more than usual at the moment. We've got some good players back in and the Eagles only just fell over the line against the Power last week without Ryder and Dixon for a large chunk. After beating them last year (albeit at Subi) I reckon the team should be supremely energised to get this win and that being compounded by all the media garbage that we are mentally fragile and can't beat a top 8 side. I can see a six goal margin in our favour.

    I'm feeling more optimistic about this every hour that passes. I really like our chances of causing an upset by a considerable margin.

    Go and get Gaff!

    It's the free agent status that makes it logical to chase Gaff. Your points above are all valid but we have an opportunity to add a proven A grade mid with 170+ games to the team who is in their prime. Stuff the waiting and hypotheticals based around our current list... Let's jack our team full of more stars while we can.

    You could insert the MFC here and your post would still have some merit. If Gaff doesn't end up a Demon he's going to be labelled a mercenary by most supporters.

    Sam Weideman

    All this talk... Let's just wait and see on Sunday. Like Goodwin said, this is his opportunity and he's up against McGovern and Hurn who are excellent backman so he's clearly going to have his work cut out for him.

    Petracca in a rut?

    Another very average performance by Trac today. He drastically needs to improve his tank over the next pre season and shed a few kilos if he’s going to become the player we think he can be in my opinion. Is a run in the Magoos on the cards?

    Match Preview and Team Selection - Round 22

    Subiaco. This will be the first time we’ve played at the new Perth (Optus) stadium at Burswood.

    I'm going to Perth ... Am I crazy?

    Not as good as the scene from basket case. Good lord I can’t believe I recalled that from my teens.

    I'm going to Perth ... Am I crazy?

    We’ve met before mate but I find it a little weird that members of this site want to remain anonymous. I reckon if we win, a post game celebratory toast(ings) should be arranged somewhere.

    Too similar a posting style to not ask the question.

    And at least you’ll get to walk over the new bridge staying at the Westin.

    Not a bad point but a bit of breathing space would come in handy too.

    Go and get Gaff!

    Simmo was interviewed last night and said he'd had no contact with Gaff since immediately after the tribunal. He went on to say that he's looking forward to Gaff returning to West Coast to assist with coaching for the remainder of their campaign. I think Gaff being part of the coaching team will be a pretty uncomfortable proposition rather than just getting around his WCE teammates as they play finals. And Tom Morris is a flop of a journo. Says lots of words that mean nothing - just like this article.

    I'm going to Perth ... Am I crazy?

    Some nice bars and restaurants but on the casino side of things it's just another casino. Booked a room there last year for a (ahem) quiet couple of nights with the missus and was okay but pricey.

    I'm going to Perth ... Am I crazy?

    I shall also be at the Camfield pre game and for post game analysis. And if we win, I will be sleeping in on Monday.

    I'm going to Perth ... Am I crazy?

    Looking as though the days are going to be low 20's with Sunday looking superb for footy. It cracked 24 degrees out my way in the Swan Valley yesterday but today it's poured rain. The night temps starts to get to jacket wearing temp around 6pm and the mornings have been nippy around 5 - 10 degrees. My tip is don't bother packing anything too bulky to keep warm in as it'll be overkill. A MFC beanie and scarf will be a necessity at the game and afterwards if we win. Some knuckle dusters may come in handy.

    Hogan 2018 season over with foot injury

    All good... I went early and out of context.
