ESSENDON BOMBERS

Stopher: I hate these campaigners. Call me petty if you like. Fine. I just hate them
Phone: the turnovers in the third. that's it
windyhill: That and that tip rat papley getting off the leash in that quarter.
Highly Evolved: Stringer, Merrett and Parish couldn't have done too much more.
TDay: Decent effort. Can't complain about the umps. Much better than last week
VexOh: The difference in field kicking was incredible. Our short kicking game is shitehouse, let alone the 50m pings it seems like 90% of the Swans players were capable.
Dave: Great effort to go with them in the second half. They kicked 13 straight after half time. 13 ******* straight. And Razor can go and get f’ed.
Loonerty: any chance we can defend transition
JT_the_Man: Can’t complain, we were beat by a better side. I thought we played well all things considered.
Pweter: Good effort but were definitely beaten by the better side. Sydney's ball movement is deadly
kelvin_sheedy: A whistle goes for a free kick and its like we are hypnotised for 30 seconds trying to work out whats going on.
Beerfish: Great lead in to next week's flogging.

"Bit of a valium-dosed win, yeah, but in a howling gale, to get it done easily, with no injuries, while resting Doc, is a solid achievement and moves us one step closer to that McClellan Trophy in our cabinet."
"Pretty easy win overall. Wish we could have piled it on a bit more but good to just win it comfortably."
"Defended top spot with a good solid win and no injuries."

Perkins omitted, but probably due for a rest. Heppell broke his thumb again (the other one this time), so he'll have surgery and hopefully be back next week. Langford also out for a few weeks after re-injuring his hamstring. Booooo.

Laverde stays in after passing a fitness test this week – no structural damage but he couldn't lift his arm above his head last week due to a shoulder injury – he still kept Buddy quiet with one arm though.

Waterman, Gleeson and Guelfi in.

For the Dogs: Treloar, Duryea and Richards are back for the Doggies. Making way are Mitch Hannan (shoulder), Cody Weightman (managed) and Roarke Smith (omit).

7 long years since our last win against the Dogs, don't think it'll be the flogging many are predicting but will concede it is a distinct possibility. A respectable 4 goal loss would do me.
