Passionate Essendon Supporter, and all around total flog.

Actually we are slightly longer than that now. We won premierships one 1965 and 1984 which is our longest gap without a flag.

Four burning questions for Essendon ahead of the AFL restart

Don’t write Ridley off just yet, I think he could be very handy. Francis I think will end up being glorified trade bait back to south Australia unfortunately.

Bah you favour the cats over the bombers? Essendon actually have a reasonably good record against Geelong. In 2017 and 2018 the outside sling shot style of essendon absolutely pulverised Geelong.

Trealoar also cannot kick the ball haha

Four burning questions for Essendon ahead of the AFL restart

He just needs to kick it short, no long kicks

Smith is a player who plays like he’s ten cm taller and tell kg heavier than he actually is haha

Nah brown was a very good set shot for goal. I think the problem is brown is more of a big wingman rather than a key forward

Four burning questions for Essendon ahead of the AFL restart

I agree with you somewhat, port have taken a draft first strategy the last few years and it has paid off somewhat for them. The bombers need to go back to the draft (after they sack doddoro)

Four burning questions for Essendon ahead of the AFL restart

Some of that is showing up now, look at Matt Rowell, Andrew McGrath, or even players like rivers and co who are very strong on the outside but less so on the inside. Rowell and McGrath are both under 180 cm

Having a marking forward around which your entire forward line can operate is important

That’s a big if, the info out of the hanger is indicating he’s progressing nicely

Wines for McKay.

Here’s the thing if the list reductions happen this year then I reckon it’ll free up space to sign some good young players

Saad would be a good replacement for Jetta

The one player each AFL club should poach

Jake stringer lacks the tank to be an effective wingman he needs to work on that.

The one player each AFL club should poach

I understand the decision regarding worsfold. He was good in 2016 and 2017 but the sling shot back line first run and gun style the bombers play is not suited to modern tactics. Also part of the reason they have so few marks inside 50 is because of them playing hooker down back, not playing Daniher or Stewart both of whom are capable of clunking them. That leaves them with an extremely undersized forward line with a fulcrum of jake stringer, Shaun mckernan and Jayden laverde as the key position players. But I think with BZT, Ridley and Francis developing we can play hooker forward this year

Hmmm but boak and gray could both theoretically be counted as veterans meaning half their pay is deducted

Four burning questions for Collingwood ahead of the AFL restart

He’s still in contract till end of 2021 but we have depth at the small forward position so I say try to extract a early second round or late first round draft pick out of port or even a straight swaps SPP for Fantasia.

Four burning questions for Collingwood ahead of the AFL restart

Yeah Langdon is messed up

Four burning questions for Collingwood ahead of the AFL restart

I also think you’re gonna have the same problem if you go after a small forward from any of the other clubs, lord knows the bombers will be uhhhh vindictive if you wanna get your mitts on Fantasia. I’d go at a couple of gws players tbh. Like bobby hill, or brent Daniels.

Four burning questions for Collingwood ahead of the AFL restart

Most clubs would have that to contend with though. I know my bombers have thrown the kitchen sink at Shiel, and Daniher is on around 800k and that’s before you talk about Merrett or Heppell. Which players are port paying too much for? I’d guess wines and gray? I know a few years ago around 2015-16 they were having cap issues but I figured they were resolved.

Four burning questions for Collingwood ahead of the AFL restart

Oh god it would be amazeballs hahaha.

Four burning questions for Collingwood ahead of the AFL restart

Agreed. We need a resumption to the natural order which has Richmond with an unhealthy attachment to 9th position.

Four burning questions for Collingwood ahead of the AFL restart

I think the salary cap is gonna mess with collingwood, they’re at least gonna lose one of De Goey, or Darcy Moore. I think the swans will make a play for Moore instead of Daniher, mainly because he’s actually been able to get on the park over the last couple years. I think either the bombers or Port will make a play for De Goey as well, he makes a good fit for both of those sides.

I think its outrageous they let Jaidyn Stephenson off with regards to his gambling suspension, he should have been booted for the entire season. Heath Shaw copped eight weeks for a single bet, Stephenson should’ve copped 8 weeks per bet that he made.
