The way we’re going, it’ll take four years even to play in finals. Seriously, to win a flag a side needs to be top four at the end of the home and away season. Few have won a flag from outside the top four. To win a flag we’d need to win at least three finals and we haven’t won one since 2004.
I’d like to think I’m being pessimistic, but those are the facts.


#3675

Yep

Love it when people take the time to listen to the chairman or CEO talk, then complain about them talking about off field stuff.


#3676

Try to remain positive and think of all the opportunities to grow and learn.


#3677

Growings and learnings?


#3678

I come for the wins but I stay for the growings and learnings.


#3679

I’m learnings to fly, but I ain’t got wings


#3680

Because if they talk about on field performances the players have a sook, and expect an apology.


#3681

Considering our record against top 8 teams and the run we have coming up I think even 5 wins will be stretching it.
We’ve played 5 of the current top 8 and been belted by 3 of them.


#3682

We all know what will happen.
We will beat the Hawks, w.c away,the giants at home,do the Pies but lose to Nth and Gold Cost as we look back on why we finished 9th.


#3683

That wont happen.


#3684

There will be a great win as underdogs and bad lose as overwhelming favourites somewhere.


#3685

Well if that’s the case, you’ll only get one shot at it.


#3686

Coming down is the hardest thing. :wink:


#3687

I was expecting top 6 at the start of the year.
But looking at that draw and our form so far, it’s hard to see anything more than 5 more wins


#3688

I note with interest that North (and most recently Carlton - they did smash the Lions - to a lesser extent) are playing a hard edged winning brand of footy, supercharged by a coach giving new life to a team that struggled under the stale messaging of a coach that clearly “lost” the group.

By any definition, Essendon are labouring and have not progressed from their 2017 finals season. You could mount an argument that they’ve stagnated. Sad thing is, Essendon have a talented list (experts agree) that isn’t being utilised to its potential.

Just imagine what a new/inspiring/connecting voice could do for the group? Massive shame supporters have to witness yet another wasted season of promise, crashing and burning AGAIN (!)


#3689

Really?


#3690

Steady on ATE, Bloos have won only their second game, hardly playing any sort of brand of footy.


#3691

Indeed. Still…


#3692

It’s a dead cat bounce. What happens in 2-3 weeks time when the blues go back to being ■■■■? Sack their interim coach?


#3693

One comment of interest in fark Carlton’s was that Teague gave them licence to just play football and enjoy themselves whereas (by implication) Bolton had had them follow strict instructions.

Clearly you can’t have players just running downfield (that’s Knights football) but surely there’s a balance.
