"We know where we need to get better. It's not going to happen in one week or one quarter, it'll take a little while, but I think we understand what we need to do and it's about using each other a little more and bringing others into the game without thinking you've always got to kick it long to a contest all the time."


They should Have put that on the ******* banner an Brayshaw run through first

I'd be willing to make a small banner with this on it just for Brayshaw this afternoon, and drive through the night from Brisbane to have him run out through it pregame.

At least the fact that TMac mentioned it in a press conference means that it's been brought up, and should be a focus.

I know some people will see it as hyperbole but if we lose tomorrow night it is season over. 0-3 and still have to play pies/eagles/tigers twice each? It’s now or never to string a few wins in a row and build up some form.

If we lose 2moro then Top 4 is gone and Top 8 chances are slim

May, Lever, Vandenberg, Lewis, Garlett, Hannan all out for a good stunt which hurts our depth as it's a shallow pool to choose from

In- Hore, Saprgo
Out- May, Lockhart

Spargo broke his jaw last week in the VFL, won’t be coming in this week. I’d like to give Lockhart a game or two when we are giving our forwards a chance.

For me, this round has a bit of a round 2, 2015 flavour about it. I wouldn’t be deeply surprised if we lose somehow.

Reckon this is the first time under Goody team sheet is basically where theyll line up. fu** our backline looks slow compared to their forward line. Mids definitely have to work to help out

Oh no. Bombers bring in an extra ruckman, Have teams worked out to smash Gawn with 2?

How does Stretch keep getting left out, especially when he played his best ever game as a defender?

It’s almost as confounding as Goody’s obsession with the Wagners .... almost!

How the fu** did we go from chocolates to..

IN: 2 x Wagners

Seriously Goody?

Anyone who doesn't have their house on Essendon to win is a mug.

I'd bloody love if I was but I don't even have Twitter, so if they are taking big footy posts we might all be in sh*t when Jack Viney turns up at your door asking why you said he can't kick that well.
Just stamp on his foot and briskly walk away. It'd be like saying offensive things to Jack Trengove - what's he going to do, throw his Zimmer frame at you?

So both Wagners huh?

Good number of the team we are running out have a placard hanging around their neck saying “depth” plus a few with “break glass in emergency”.

I’m starting to look forward to tomorrow. Will likely be dreadful but there are any number of human interest stories I can distract myself with.
