LID ON 2018 - lacking the grunt to open the jar


#142

2016 - moving forward
2017 - year of redemption
2018 - reality bites and it hurts bad


#143

Iv’e just about condecded that we will never be a good team again we have been drowned im midoricty for too long that i cant see us getting out of it.


#144

Perhaps we wheel him out again, only if he isn’t enjoying a glass of red with the Sash.


#145

It’s going to take some tanking, AFL intervention like they did with Roos and a massive overhaul to get the stench out of the club


#146

To date, round 1 is the anomaly with Essendon winning 3 of the 4 quarters played (don’t get why some Blitzers reckon they played crap and just managed to scrape home in the last - there were positives to come from the game).

In the next 8 quarters played Essendon have won just 1 and that was against Freo in the last when they put the cue in the rack.

It is not beyond the realms that Essendon lose all bar 1 game before the bye and that game against Carlton is no gimme!

What a nightmare / doomsday (ina football sense) scenario that would be!


#147

I’m p***** off we should have been 3-0 which would have set us up nicley for a crack at the top 4 but instead we will now be lucky to make the 8.

Same s*** diffrent year the team can get stuffed.


#148

what is the quickest someone has been sacked after being given a contract extension?


#149

Gotta admire some of you typing more than 1 paragraph to vent.

Haven’t missed a game in 20+ years and these days just go to catch up with mates I’ve made over the way. No point getting wound up over something you can’t control.


#150

Yep.


#151

We won’t be playing finals this year
Collingwood, Hawthorn, Bulldogs, Melbourne are all better than us


#152

You’re old, soon you’ll be sitting in the cheersquad with a lap throw.


#153

It’s true, its just that false sense of hope that really gets you down after supporting the club through its darkest hour and 15 years of mediocrity.


#154

Except that the best players at our pick will be talls.

110% guaranteed.

Essington.


#155

id rather we recruit adelaide’s midfield coaches.


#156

Shut the lid and throw this ■■■■■■■ jar out! And whilst we’re at it, throw the stupid ‘we are Essendon’ chant out also. Seriously who the ■■■■ else are we, that we need to remind ourselves that we’re Essendon.
I swear it seems like the players delibarerly avoid scoring so they don’t hear that stupid chant.


#157

Get ready for some ■■■■■■■■ from marketing to tell us to chant “we are Essendon” before the first bounce at our home game this weekend.


#158

I’m off the the Trading and Drafting Board. What are we going to do with pick 2?


#159

Fixed


#160

2019 will equal the longest period in the clubs history without a premiership.


#161

You forgot the dockers lions and suns.
