Game Chat – Adelaide v Collingwood

Written by Father Dougal on August 11 2020

Where and When: Adelaide Oval, Tuesday 11 August at 6:35pm (AEST)
Last time they met: Collingwood 17.12 (114) def Adelaide 6.12 (48) Round 22, 2019.

What does it mean for Adelaide: Well, if they are lucky they could get their first win. But probably it means they get games into kids.
What does it mean for Collingwood: If it means anything other than a win, and a bit of progress up the ladder, they will be hanging their heads.

Supercoach Watch Crows:  Surprising amount of SC players for the Crows. Doedee, Laird, B Smith, RO’B, and some cows!
Supercoach Watch Pies:  Grundy! Adams, Maynard, Sidebottom, and Crisp.
Father Dougal Watch:  Ruscoe! Because I own him and darn it, I want to see him do well and keep his job!

Father Dougal’s Tip: The Battle of the Birds! Oh, wait, The Clash of the Corvids! No amtter what you call it, I expect a Murder of Crows, and I’m not talking about a large number of them. Collingwood by 24

  1. Welcome to the team Schoenberg.

    I’ve given you a spot at M8 this week over Buda.

    No pressure, but anything over 68 will make my best 18

    And , you might just hold your spot !

    A big one from Grundy wouldn’t go astray either.


    1. 11 at the 1/2

      Might be a bust ?

      I need a big second half out of you son !

      50 for Grundy

      Could do anything this half.

      Cameron ( long gone from my team ) unsighted on 7

      I like the Crows in a close one here.


    1. yes, but getting very favourable scoring from CD in the second quarter … the calls he’s been given as ‘accurate disposals’ leave quite a bit to be desired


      1. Gawn probably play a lot more fwd until he recovers from that torn shoulder
        D’s got another ruckman they want to get games into anyway


  2. Doedee hasn’t gotten into the game too much, but managing to get a decent score due to some spoils. Laird on fire though with 21 disposals in the first half!


  3. Really, Schoenberg? THAT’S the score you’re going with? 14 @ HT, cmon.

    Will be satisfied with 40. Please.


  4. I’m a 1 eyed pies supporter and thought this might be a danger game…… but geeeee Grundy looking like he won’t make top 18 score in my side and my side ain’t that good!!


  5. Half Time and I’m almost too angry to put the scores up. Woeful effort by the Pies so far and heading towards a defeat to the bottom of the ladder side Adelaide. I’ve got the vodka bottle beside me as I type this…..

  6. Cmon pies
    Bobo you must have a strong side
    Grundy @ 51 at half time
    Keep it going Laird and McPherson but not at the expense of a pies victory


    1. @pbuzz… slightly tongue in cheek. However, he was single figures at qu time I believe. And no, my side ain’t crash hot!


    1. Our depth being tested Bobo
      My response was a bit tongue in cheek also.
      I think Grundy hasn’t been as influential this year despite SuperCoach scoring .
      Players stand taller with Pendle’s , Degoey xfactor missed and Howe as general in defence ; Trealors run and carry ; Moore will be back next week hopefully .
      Besides those 5 Brown boys could come back


      1. Goes without saying pbuzz. Definitely agree your comment Grundy. I’m only listening on radio to game but commentators saying he looks very tired. Sadly with all the injuries think we might be just making up the numbers and I hate saying that. However, Grundy has proved me wrong with sc score tonight.


  7. DRAPER “Managed” tomorrow from Essendon’s teams. That’s going to kill a lot of teams with Gawn also out.


  8. Tomorrows ins & outs

    GCS IN – Fiorini, Corbett & S Flanders (new)
    GCS OUT – Sexton, Sharp, Holman

    ESS IN – Clarke, Gleeson & Bellchambers
    ESS OUT – Townsend, Huelry & Draper


  9. Did they just say on fox remaining teams to not have a bye will all take it at the same time I think he said there will be a round with 4 games to be played


  10. not saying this game has been poorly umpired , but ,
    i wonder if the WA & SA umpires will show less favoritism from now on ,
    in a focused attempt to host the GF


  11. 3/4 Time sees Coll 7.1.43 (with a goal on the siren to D Cameron) to Crows 3.8.26, a better quarter considering the number of key Pies players not there tonight. Crows have lost Tom Lynch, iced up & on the bench. I’ve calmed down a bit (vodka helps).

  12. I took a massive punt 2 weeks ago and traded Docherty instead of Doedee when he was potentially injured (ended up missing a game).
    Haven’t regretted it so far looking at his 3/4 time score…. Will see how it pans out for the rest of the season…???

    Just had to look at the raw numbers and couldn’t justify trading Doedee out over him….

    Also, dont ask why I had to trade someone of that value as it was all about my trade plan….


    1. definite role change.

      I started him and thought he might be a dud pick but is getting midfield minutes now.


  13. Oh man! Spoke too soon! Doedee off with a hammy again.
    Will probably be the one that they took a graft from for his knee….. Been there and done that


  14. I bought in Mihocek 2 weeks back to plug a hole in my forward line and be a stepping stone but…back to back games of 90’s and Melb and North the next two weeks.
    Thinking I might keep him for a couple more rounds?

    T/U Keep
    T/D Sell


    1. I think they’ve played all the other bottom 4 teams too…
      They get Rory Sloane back and Brad Crouch back soonish

      Bulldogs and cats their next to opponets
      Macrae will score 200 against them (ok he’ll go huge)


  15. Final Scores – Pies find a way to win 10.2.62 defeat the Crows 5.8.38
