#47 James Kelly - #BackIn


#1301

As great as he’s been in the 1.8 seasons at the dons, he’s done. I wouldn’t say he’s let us down or cost us, but we defs need more from that role. I say that role, as the defender who takes the easiest matchup to help set us up forward.

#1303

He could be a very good coach for us. He already has good repour with the players.


#1304

Been a fine addition.


#1305

Just announced his retirement to the playing group. Press conference to come.


#1306

Couldn’t have asked for more from someone who came out of retirement to help a team that was in trouble. Thanks Pops.


#1307

An absolute legend and champion of the game, a true professional who wore the jumper with pride. I hope we keep him around the club


#1308

Thanks kel! Really appreciate you putting your hand up to help us when we were in dire straits.

Hope you stay on at efc as coach.


#1309

Nothing but class for us, all the way through. So lucky to have had him the last two years, invaluable asset on and off the field. Safe decision made, as he could’ve hit a sudden decline at any stage next year, but in saying that I think he still could’ve played some good footy next year. Hope he farks off the job at the league and we keep him onboard as an assistant, because he’d be a terrific coach.

Thanks James, has been awesome


#1311

The right decision. Glad he’s going out on his terms still playing reasonable footy. Has been great since he came over, thanks for everything kel


#1312

He came out of retirement to help us out, even though he knew how tough of a year it will be.
Deserves a life membership for that.

Hope he’s offered an Assistant Coaching Role, someone like him is worth their weight in gold.


#1313

Maybe this is a main reason behind wanting J McVeigh


#1314

Thanks Pops.

We didn’t get your best years, but they were invaluable to us.


#1315

Absolute class. And hasn’t gone on too long either. Going out playing good footy.

Thanks Pops.


#1316

Email through now as well. He’s been great for us and glad he’s going out on his terms while still adding value to the team.


#1317

One of my favourite non-Essendon players. Who then became an Essendon player! Such an underrated player in that Geelong side, looked unobtrusive but jut did everything right and was all class. Glad to see him go out while still in good form.
