I felt exactly like you one overcast day at the G. We were playing the Eagles. The build up to this game was eerily similar to tonight's game. Read about it for yourself. I was glad to be there and watch it happen. Unbelievable.

In 2005 we were on the bottom of the ladder and had named a few kids for our clash with the undefeated top of the table West Coast Eagles. Another wonderful memory.
My dad took me down for my birthday. First time watching a game live at the MCG. Cracker of an arvo and got to go on the ground afterwards.

Reckon we will struggle tonight. Can’t see where we score goals from. Need a big form reversal. On paper a team well off our best.

Eagles would have to drop a long way for us to be competitive. Think we will come out hard though. Would be very happy to keep this under 30 points. The two weeks after that will tell a story. We need to win at least one of them. Currently we don’t look likely but tonight if we can find some form we may
be a better chance. A big loss tonight could see us fall of the pace of the 4.

Anything can happen and many times this season it actually has. Hoping this week is Collingwood's "Anything can happen" game. Everything goes right, Cox finds his mojo, Jelly kicks a bag, Crocker bags a couple, Levi hassles Gaff out of the game and into a tribunal sitting, Grundy outdoes Grundy to have his best game of the year, Pendles and Rusty rack up 60 disposals between them, Treloar goes at 90% efficiency, Darcy and Rough prompt the WA cops to instigate a manhunt for Darling and JK, IQ gets his first brownlow votes for 500m gained and a goal of the the year contender, rising star nom for the Nobleman on debut, and Bucks smiling in the booth for the entire last quarter. Without hope we're hopeless. Go Pies!!!

It’s a long while since we have had success on a regular basis in the West. Upset would be a major surprise. Not impossible but a loss with a bit of scoring by us is acceptable tonight then hope we can snag at least one win against WCE and Tigers. After that with a few more back hopefully we can steady the ship for a finals tilt.

If we get within 10 goals I’ll be surprised. Eagles have better Forwards, mids and backs. If we had a full team and playing at our best then maybe but we are not playing well nor do we have our best team.
10 goals + loss and big footy Collingwood thread to explode.

We are all hoping for an upset victory. The chances are there, certainly the pies are against the wall and that is when you would expect an out of the box performance. Truth is we have not shown the four quarter form that could beat the eagles all year. I will be interested so see how we play, what game plan we use to combat this team, how we respond to the challenges and, of course, how our new talent goes.

Not sure if you want a loss, win or BF to explode, me thinks you’re just an immature troll?
