My worst line-up for the season will likely result in my best score for the season. Just an odd round.

Too good @Crazy_Bomber. Can’t begrudge you a win when its Essendon players beating me…though naturally I would’ve preferred for Fiorini to score more than 12 in the 2nd half.

Big thanks to you and @Crazy_Bomber for getting through this period and doing so very well.

Wish most of my team could show this amount of effort and consistency.

FAs have been processed.

Happy to finally find some form in what’s been a terrible season.

I’m going to need some players to come back to be even a slight chance this week.
I only have Marshall and Swallow in the midfield that would be considered ‘first choice’. The rest should be in the backline or forwardline.
Viney and Atkins back would be great. Blake Acres or Elliott would also be handy.
Riley Bonner’s drop off hasn’t helped this year. Hopefully he rebounds next year.

Not sure what to make of this year. I have some nice pieces, but just not enough around them.

I was riding high on my 5 game winning streak, but @Vandrs brought me back to reality.

Going to need to lift as struggling to make 1,000 will see me struggle to beat @fogdog this week.

The only thing we can take from the round is that we played every available kid. Ross (12 games) , Sholl (2) , Rivers (5), Smith(8), Woodcock (2) , Sier (17) . King, Paton, Bolton and Waterman all around 30 games.

It was “senior” guys like CEY, Cutler, Harbrow and Jonas who let us down. We could/should have been up around 900.

Blakey was selected for tonight and I’m assuming Cotchin will return (hopefully not for Ross!) so we may have an option or two this week. Hoping Irving finally gets a game too! Surely? And he’ll need another week or two, but Marchbank finally returned to play.

Would have been a nail biter had we been playing MB! Now we run into Fudge for another belting.

Completely missed FA last night.

Read in the paper todat that Cordy who I have picked up to avoid a zero with Rich suspended has now got a chest injury and is out for 2-4.

Could be two down with Johannisen injured too, great.

Really is a season of minimising injury donuts as best we can.

Sholl has taken Atkins’s wing spot and performed very well last week so I wouldn’t anticipate a Rory recall.
Viney & Elliott ought to be named though.


I think everyone is aware, but just a reminder in case they’re not that despite looking like a normal round, there will again be no official lockout, so you’ll be able to move players around before each game.

Power Changes are already known:

In: Mayes & Motlop
Out: Lienert & Sutcliffe

Grrr…
Leinert…
I can’t afford to lose defenders…

That’s why I got rid. He use to be a favourite at the tarps, but now they seem to look at him as depth at best

Snelling and my good pal Zaharakis got me over the line there, Snelling in good form. I’m barely staying inside the top 8 but losing Doedee and Zaka in the one game hurts.

Crikey! Blakey has gone bonkers in the first half.

Oh Fark you GWS. No need to be this ■■■■ across the board

And promptly faded in the second.

Still, a 90 is a 90. And far far better than anything else he’s managed this year!
