Lol, … I said exactly those words at the time.
He had a left footer to tbell in the corridor in the third which was just exquisite
Love Tippa, really hoping to see the ball in his hands a bit more next week. He is the spark when the other boys drop off.
Ivan I reckon that kick is the best kick this season in any game given the risk and pressure wrong foot. That was incredible skill.
Should we go full-Hawthorn and complain that Tippa was robbed for not getting goal of the year?
Make that x2 for his unbelievable goals against Port and Blues.
(+ Buddy ran too far).
I think the problem might be: how many award Essendon players get?
It’s got me absolutely stuffed what is so good about that Franklin goal.
Christ almighty, the McKenna goal on the same weekend was better for starters. There’s probably been 100 better goals this year
It’s hard to run in a straight line into 100m of open space without needing to bounce more than once every 25m while a plodder chases you.
I think Walla is a player the umpires don’t favour. He had a great goal taken off him for running too far when he would have been well shy of the distance covered by Franklin. Also regularly gets his head ripped off in front of goal for no free.
Franklin’s same old, same old.
Not only was McKenna running full tilt, bouncing it at full tilt, he kicked the goal full tilt and then he just kept on running.
Not that I’m biased at all.
start him in the middle
time to mindfuck sydney.
Its not only Walla they don’t like, its anyone with a red and black jumper!!!.
McKenna also had to kick over some players whereas Franklin had an open goal to kick it with less pressure.
Also you could see the afterburner tail behind Conor
Team rule: DO NOT KICK THE BALL IN THE AIR TO TIPPA IN A ONE ON ONE CONTEST!!!
why not? His one on one contested marking had dramatically improved, and if he doesn’t mark it, he dances around anyone on a one on one
But they do it every farking week. Do it to parish as well. Drives me insane. I’d prefer they just grubber it.
He gets out marked by his opponent 90% of the time.
I get the feeling a lot of Tippas mistakes come out of self doubt. I remember at the start of the year he would always try and pass the ball on if he had it near the 50 line but now he’s much more confident to go for goal. Idk probably just talking out my ■■■
