Cupido4lyfe if you don't get some kind of award at the B&F I'll be melting my 3 game membership in protest.

Great mix of inside grunt and class finishing. Clearly bleed red and black.

You've won 2019 in my eyes. Top 2, home final, straight through to prelim, ten goal win and then home in a canter on the big day.

Well done and thank you!

Cupido4lyfe, a lock for “Poster of the year” 2019.
I don’t usually vote in that, as I don’t like the idea of ranking people.
But screw it, C4L is clearly better than all of us!

Holy Moly after watching that I have the solution. Forget kicking to advantage...forget game plans. What we need to do is try to kick it to the opposition. Give it to them...always. Good chance we will score. That was horrendous. Lol

After scouring through the player archives I thought it would be interesting to start a lively debate on the All Essington team of the last 15 years:

FB: Zantuck D Daniher Steinberg
HB: Pears Bradley Hardingham
C: Dyson Slattery Lovett
HF: J Merrett Gumbleton Reimers
FF: Jetta Neagle Williams
R: Laycock Prismall Myers
INT: Cupido Johns Kommer Lonergan

Zantuck or Hardingham can be thrown forward when we’re down 30 in the last quarter.

Bradley takes the number one defender for mine with Pears and Steinberg both going third man up in every marking contest. Daniher to shutdown Fevola.

Prismall and Myers can throw their big bodies around at the contest. Both are inside bulls, which we’ve been crying out for.

Blistering one-way gut-running provided by Lovett and Dyson.

Hank Slattery can shutdown the opposition’s best mid and grab 20 himself.

Gumbleton can pinch hit in the ruck to give the ANZAC medallist a spell. Rest Laycock forward and watch him pluck anything and everything that comes in.

Jetta, Reimers and Shotgun Williams will feast off the Neagle crumbs. J Merrett gives you the option of a negating half forward role. All can and should be rotated through the midfield.

The mercurial Cupido coming off the bench is such a luxury to have, although starting him in the guts would not be out of the question for some added X factor at the stoppages.

If we do make the eight with this team, I don’t think anyone would want to play us. If we add another big bodied mid in the offseason we could challenge top four next year no doubt.

Z Clarke very stiff to miss out.

Harsh on Darcy and Pears. Otherwise, love it!
