Pretty , pretty, pretty closeMy thoughts...
We beat Collingwood in Melbourne for the first time in years last year and again this year.
We beat Hawks in Melbourne last year after a decent period and we will again tomorrow.
Actually feel like we'll lock them down well, limit them to 6-7 goals and kick 11-12 ourselves.
On SM-G925I using BigFooty.com mobile app
I was at that one. That's the one Buddy belted Cousins behind play. You all know what happened next:And check this out guys
edited - 2006 at the MCG, the last time the eagles beat Hawks there until today, they trailed Hawthorn by 5 points at 3 qtr time and won the game. Lynch kicked 5 for the Eagles. ( the game was also played on a Saturday lunch time time slot for WA Viewers )
Darling, Suma and Lynch 3 Key Forwards for the Eagles all kick 5 as the eagles win coming from behind at 3qtr time. Twice the margin was 5 points at 3qtr time. I'll have to check what it was in 92 at 3qtr time too, I know it was close. If it was 5 points holy ****. dont think so though
**** actually they led at 3qtr time in 92. Still kicked 11 goals like today and KPP booted 5!
On three occasions today I saw a tall lead and the pass kicked IMO deliberarely high over his head for a 2nd leading player taking the mark. Looked like a set play using the main lead as a decoy.Never seen a FF infringed more that in this game, ever. At one point he was in a 3 on 1 and got arm chopped, held and pulled down by each of the three Hawks defenders and no call. Getting to a point where the club has to have a chat with the umpiring department, he's been scragged like absolute crazy this year and has had **** all for it
He was very smart though, just ran interference for the others. Obviously knew he wasn't going to get anything from the Umps, especially after that first quarter. Frawley put his foot and knee into his back about 15 times as well, learn't that from the Stratton School of being a complete campaigner
Going back through this thread this post stood out.Could be a ripper this - on paper we should win and yet got no idea what to expect in the wet vs Clarko.
You are my new favouriteOk final edit
Ok so 1992 Saturday arvo lunch time slot out at Waverley in Wet, miserable conditions Hawthorn lead West Coast at Qtr time. Eagles fight back and kick 11 goals for the game with Sumich kicking 5. Eagles win the flag.
In 2006 at the MCG Eagles trail at quarter time and at 3 quarter time by 5 points. They fight back and win a close game by 10 points with Lynch kicking 5 goals. They went onto win the flag ( the game was also in the wet!!!! )
Today the Eagles trail Hawthorn at the MCG During the Saturday arvo lunch time slot like the above games. They trail at 3qtr time by 5 points like in 2006, and end up beating the Hawks for the first time there since the above game. They finished with 11 goals ( like in 1992 ) and once again their KPP Player in Darling kicks 5 goals.
Beat Hawthorn in Melbourne for the first time last year although it was at Marvel. Went on to win the flag ( half time goal tally of 6 like today )
Also in 1992, 2006 and 2019 the games they played against the Hawks they played in a grand final the year before! 2018 they won it
Premiers this year?
