Kind of game Essendon drop. Have a good win in a match we are expected to lose. Get talked up a little. Go in confident against a team who’s backs are against the wall with 3 loses in a row. Then stuff it up.
This. Our arrogance of keeping passengers like Zaka in the side shows we’ve been drinking our own bath water all week. North will bounce us out of the blocks and we’ll spend the rest of the game playing ugly catch-up football

Honestly don't think it matters how arrogant Essendon are in approach to this game as we, as a team, have mentally sh*t the bed. You'll win by about 60 points.

Essendon’s record the week after a good, unexpected win is about 0-20 over several years now. The holiday atmosphere the players are enjoying up on the Gold Coast this week will only add to this playing group’s complacency. North are also due for a form turnaround.

No reason to tip us until they prove otherwise, consistently. North by 12.

Yep. Seen this movie plenty of times before. Obviously would love to be proven wrong but we’ve got form.

One thing I will say though, there’s a school of thought that whoever adjusts best to the chaos of season 2020 is going to prosper and if any club has experience dealing with noise and nonsense we’d be it, at least it’s not mostly self inflicted this time.

Bomber supporters have seen this far too often. Nothing surer than a North win tonight

I love reading all of the Bombers fans bluffing this game as if they aren't one of the form sides of the comp. They will win and win big.

The more interesting battle will be if Zaharakis can get more possessions than Ben Brown has flops. Should be a close one

There is no greater unknown quantity in AFL than Essendon. The gap between our best and worst is easily wider than any other team's.
Just remember... this is the team that conceded 21 consecutive goals to WBD late last year. The team ain't that much different to today's.

My observation is Essendon early in the season is Tarzan, Essendon later in the season is Jane.

You've lost one game for the season, by a point. So you can lose the woe is me mentality
