Collingwood vs Essendon

Well its here again the Blockbuster what a cracker it should be,Both coming off losses and Collingwood have a top 4 spot in the balance where would anyone of believed this at the start of the year The Bombers are risking their spot in the eight.
I'd expect both sides to be going for it like never before and I doubt it would be as one sided as this years Anzac Day Match where Collingwood were superb in the Wet Conditions to take the honours.

It's gonna be a great game and Essendon will be absolutely pupmed for this one as their finals hopes are on the line as you said. I know the Pies will be pretty fired as well but I think that we will see some Kevin Sheedy magic and the Dons will get over the line by a couple of goals.

Essendon are ragged and have no big men ... Salmon and Hille are the prime reason JJ, Smokin' Joe and pals are seeing the ball second at most clearances ...

They'll push Collingwood hard no doubt ... but in the past 2 weeks Essendon have been blown away by the two best running brigades in the comp - and Collingwood are just as lethal. Bucks and Frase should have free-run and the stellar forwardline the Pies have should seal a 6 goal win.

im hoping the pies whip em, cant stand the bombers and it'll be gr8 watching them get put out of commission by a team they loath, if the pies running brigade clicks and it will coz O'bree is coming back, they will spank the bombers.

Even thogh I am not fond of both teams , I think the pies will win.
Collingwood even though I suspect the wheels are getting a little wobbly now are still playing a bit better than Essendon who have the arse of the carraige dragging on the floor losing the wheels long ago !!!

Woods by 20 points

I believe that Kevin Sheedy is going to pull a few tricks out of his sleeve and the Bombers will win in a close one,They're desperate so are the Pies but the Bombers are just that little bit more.Lloyd will brake his Goal draught and Hird will have another blinder Im expecting a close one The Bombers by 14 points.

I think this season Kevin Sheedy could fit all his tricks in a tanktop !!

Essendon have dropped alot and it will be a few years till Essendon will be at there best again , the more I think about this game the more I think Collingwood

The greatest thing about it is that arguably the greatest football side in history (talking era-wise) has come away with exactly one flag for all their froth, bubble & invincibility!

If your talking about Kevin Sheedy he has won 4 flags ~!!!

at an average at 1 every 5 seasons ..Pretty good if you ask me !!!

No, I was referring to recent times, say 1996-2002 ...

Essendon = 1 flag.

If we're counting from 81-02 (Sheedy's coaching career at Essendon) then Hawthorn sh1t it in.

But that was Hawthorns Golden era & if it wasnt for Sheedy Hawthorn wouldve won a couple more

You name a coach who has held a post and has held the nerve to last as long as he has & nort bee sacked ????

Malcolm Blight is good when the going is good , but when the going gets tough he tends to run as he did at Kanga's , Geelong , Adelaide & St Kilda Sacked him before he could resign

Totally agree ... not only that but he has the happy knack of inheriting ready-made squads and taking 100% of the glory.

Speaking of the Hawks they were fantastic in the eighties and how the Bombers had that great rivalry with them,And so true but for Slim Sheedy the hawks would've had more flags.Heres a question how well do you guys rate the Brisbane Lions side of this year to say Essendon of 2000 and carlton of 95 and if you like compare the Hawks of the eighties as well and any other side You think was extroadinary.

Well I was right, Bombers in a canter, by 55 pts, 126 to 71. Don't write the Bombers off I say, I reckon they will at least be in the Preliminary Finals.

Bucks doing his hamstring killed the pies off ...

Not a good sign for them going into September.

yeah excellent question, this is just my opinion mind:


the best side I ever saw in one season is without a shadow of a doubt the carlton side of 95, they played spurts of power football the likes of which Ive never seen, nor really expect to see again, you couldnt crack them emotionally or physically, they were the ideal dreamteam, Maddan was in the form of his life, Kouta, Williams, Bradley and ratten made up the smartest on-ball brigade probably ever, Mckay, christou and Dean were the rebound specialists off half-back, throw in SOS at full-back, the cranium mil Hannah on a wing, cameos played by special fried rice and whitehead, rhino finally managed to string a season together and was unstoppable as a medium forward, Kernahan was a gr8 focal point..........

i could go on and on but apart from the on-ball division and the backline the thing that sets them apart from any1 else in 1 eason was the fact they coached themselves..........sh!t guys when parkin says to his assistant on GF day "sit back, relax and enjoy the moment" u know youve got something speeeeeeeeeeeeecial...........

but collectively as in era, then hawthorn is far and away the greatest side of all time, team full of champions and a champion side.


BTW i reckon collingwood were buried at the 10 minute mark of the first quarter b4 bucks went off, the dons were 'on'....good cal KI

Yes - and their two losses that season were to the equally awful Saints and Swans in consecutive weeks!

Many thanks TT great Analysis,It's interesting on Bucks on how the Pies will go I believe that they will play the Saints and the Dogs well i think It will be tough because even though both wont feature in the finals they would want to finish the season on a High.
On this Note does it mean that the Pies could be facing Brissie away if things stay the way they're,Gees a rude awaekening awaits them.

MM ... provided Port and Brisbane both stay undefeated to Rnd22 it will come down to their clash at AAMI in the last round.

If Port win it then the Woodsmen would travel to AAMI and my boys *gulp* would have to go to the GABBA - although we've beaten the Lions the last three times we've played them.

At GABBA last year before they went on that unbeaten run to the flag.

At the GABBA this year in the Ansett Cup.

And earlier this season at AAMI.
