Round 23: West Coast v Adelaide

Postby MrWoollie on Sat Aug 19, 2017 5:57 pm

Operation 'Get Kennedy the Coleman' is what this game is all about.

The best news is that we play last so we will know exactly what is required.

Joe Daniher with only 1 goal tonight, so Kennedy goes in with a 4 goal lead too. If we leave this game without another coleman medalist it will be the biggest of disgraces.

Going to need results to go our way to be a chance at finals, and we should know by game time whether we can make it or not. Would be nice to get a win for the retiring players.

Think LeCras will come back in as a potential "farewell" game.

I think it will come down to, who does Adelaide want to play in the first week of the finals, Cats, Power, Swans or Tigers?

We are the last game on the weekend so we will know if we can make the finals or not. If we do, we have to play one of the above away.

Assuming that Melbourne win against either Brisbane or the Pies (very likely at least one) the only chance we have is if Failmantle beat the Scum (away) and we beat Adelaide. Realistically we are about 7-8 goals behind Melbourne and the Scum in percentage so cannot pass them that way.

Its very hard atm to see anything positive about this eagles team....never seen a side consistently fail when it comes to key moments...its like they do not win..so frustrating and I cannot see with this list where they are going to improve compared to other teams

Perhaps they are reflecting the mood of Western Australians atm which is not good

Oh well last game at subi ...lets hope we put up a great performance to honour the past eagles teams
The will to win...we have lost it.......maybe its coming back ??

Everything is pretty farked in Western Australia atm. the economy, income has gone backwards, sfa GST revenue, both WA teams mediocre.

OUT: Jetta, Hill
IN: Lecras, Wellingham

Bring lecras and wellingham in for farewell games. Hill has played his last game for the club.

We would have to thump the crows to make enough percentage to nudge the scum. They are playing Brisbane...so the chances of west coast making finals are grimm.

Bring on 2018, with a nic nat to paper crack our grand canyon size cracks.

Disappointing that I'll be away for work and unable to make it to this game. With the season dead we can realistically now make this a farewell game for some players whose best days are behind them, but whose best days were pretty damn impressive at the time.
Farewell also to Subi Oval, which I will now be happy to see the back of. Loads of memories of that place that date back further than the Eagles even existed, but I'm looking forward to a reboot at a comfortable, modern arena, with an injection of fresh fans.

Now that is a winning combination.

They are actually playing the Purple Muppets, but the premise is still correct.
Scum are 1.8% (+39 points) up on us, so we need to win by about 7 goals more than they do. Or funnily, lose a close one and they get thrashed!
So, 3 chances...
we win, they lose.
we win by 7 goals more than they do.
we lose by 7 goals less than they do.

Edit - there is the option 4. Dees lose and we win with an 8 goal swing for percentage.

And yes, let's farewell a few, some who have been brilliant overall, some who have been solid contributors.

And let's give Subiaco Oval (NOT Patterson's, Domain or whatever, SUBIACO) a big, sellout, loud goodbye.

Well they certainly finished their time at Subi the same way it started.

Absolutely THUMPED!

Really looking forward to the last game of the year. Probably because it means no more weekly blog write-ups.

We have a lot to play for against the Crows. Most importantly, we must do what we need to for JK to get the Coleman. The last person to do the triple was Gary Ablett Snr in the 90s. Prior to that it was John Peck of the Hawks back in the 60s. Going back further still, only Coleman himself, Fred Fanning, Gordon Coventry and Dick Lee have achieved this feat. He is an elite player and arguably the best forward of the modern era. Hard to compare him and Buddy - they both bring something very different to the game.

We will farewell a number of players. Priddis and Mitchell to start with. I'd like to see Priddis spend his game on the ball again, despite it not being in the best interests of our future. Two champions of the game who deserve to finish on a winning note. We also know a number of other players could also be pulling on a jumper for the last time.

Lastly - our season may be riding on a big win, as unlikely as that scenario is. Let's say goodbye to Subi in style and on a positive note.
