    Player Watch # 1: Andrew McGrath

    IMO, McGrath is the victim of the club's fundamentally flawed youth development program. They invest a disproportionate amount of time in developing a players all-round game which directly impairs the development of a players acknowledged strengths. This preliminary development cycle is more...

    Toast Rnd 18: 21 point win against Adelaide!

    I'm feeling confident that our run & gun style is looking more & more complimentary to our developing structures, system & scheme, rather than being heavily dependent on them. It's becoming less helter skelter & more methodical as part of the overall gameplan, an attribute rather than an...

    Autopsy AFL 2019 Round 17: Essendon v North Melbourne - Walla wins it

    Both teams had 5 players with -50 games. North had +5 players with +100 games & +3 players with +200 games. North also had the top 4 players for most games played. The clock is definitely ticking.

    Norf preview thread posts: 99% - We are going to physically intimidate them; they will not be able to handle our intensity & pressure; their players will be jumping at shadows; softest midfield group in the competition; front running flat tracking downhill skiing bunch of squibs. 1% - We will...

    Toast Rnd 5: Bombers by 58 points

    To beat Essendon all you have to do is pressure them & block the corridor. How about we pressure you & block your corridor.

    Except for that time he buried Hill into the earths core.

    So it looks like Francis was actually omitted. Is ready to play as an emergency. Just bizarre.

    Essendon have been a safe club for nearly 2 decades. Z.Clarke is a safe selection.

    I know it looks like Francis might have been rested due to injury despite being omitted, but I just don't trust this club to bring him straight back in next week.

    Essendon missing Daniher & Hooker, so yes.

    Player Watch #35: Matt Guelfi - Sustains season ending knee injury at training - 5/8

    Feels like a role has been specifically created for him due to his footballing traits, but shouldn't be keeping the likes of Ridley & Redman out of the side going forward.

    List Mgmt. Trade & Free Agency VI

    I don't think we will be trading/cutting any of the supplement era guys who are still under contract. Also, Dodo is to chummy with anybody else that would be considered a 'ruthless' list management decision. The list seriously needs a new set of eyes to give it a glance & gauge where it's at.

    Preview Round 3: Melbourne vs Essendon, MCG, Friday 05/04/19, 7:50 PM, The Melksham-Hibberd-Neeld Trophy

    Not quite at the 'blow it all up & start again' stage. I've accepted that Myers & Zaka will not be dropped. It seems that for specific players, if you can nail professionalism & leadership off the track during the pre-season/regular season, that triumphs performance & results in actual games...

    Opposition Camp Delusional Pearlers IV

    Don't forget about the insurers paying out the claims being such a benevolent bunch. You need help rorting the salary cap, no problems Essendon, it's not like we are beholden to our share holders.

    List Mgmt. Trade & Free Agency VI

    Just got some info on Essendon's bid for Shiel. Financially, we were 2nd behind the Saints, Carltons offer was grossly overstated by the media. Essendon was the only club out of the 4 to imply rather than just entertain the idea of trading 2 1st rounders for Shiel based on GWS suggesting...
