Welcome to Essendon - Archie Roberts

I remember watching Mark Harvey in the ressies and thinking this blonde headed kid has got it. He turned out a champion.

And your thought on Roberts ?

It’s clear he thinks he should dye his hair blonde!

I thought Harvey turned up with quite a reddish tinge before going full blond.

Not full Brereton-style, but more than a hint of rangadom.

I have a feeling Roberts will be a very, very good player for the Bombers. Unlike Mass, his heart seems very much with the EFC.

Strawberry blonde for sure. As a boy I wore 38 on my back and had a big mop of strawberry blonde hair. I’d often be threading my way through the throng of the windy hill social club after games looking for my old man and his mates and received plenty of pats on the back, hair ruffles and free pots of raspberry due to my likeness.

Yeah nah Archie needs to refine a few things in the VFL before we’ll give him an opportunity. He is going to have to replace the likes of Kelly, Hind or Menzie and, you know, that’s just not going to be easy for young Archie given the form they are in.

No point. He won’t make any difference. Tonight was about effort, competitiveness ‘standards’. Until the big issue is addressed the bits and pieces won’t make any difference.

Bring the boy in

How on earth Alwyn Jr gets selected as an emergency before him after watching last wks VFL game is beyond me, something not right at the club.

Drop Kelly, I could see why they brought him in, to cover the ground more defensively, but honestly with our list it seems a priority that we get games into youth. No more letting quality players waste away in the seconds.

an ounce?

Scott didn’t do it at North, don’t get your hopes up

Well there was a loud cheer at training today.
Everyone very excited.
Turns out it was for McGrath passing his MBA.
