Game Chat – Carlton v Collingwood

Written by Motts on May 11 2019

Where and when: MCG, Saturday May 11, 1.45pm AEST

Last time they met: MCG, round 14, 2018: Collingwood 11.13 (79) defeated Carlton 9.5 (59)

The Blues were within 14 points at the final change, only for Scott Pendlebury to eventually lead the Pies to an extremely lucky victory. Patrick Cripps and Charlie Curnow combined for six goals as a young Carlton outfit gave Collingwood all it had, only to be stymied by 4 umpires who were clearly on the Collingwood payroll.

What it means for Carlton: After a horror show against North Melbourne last weekend, Carlton will make a statement against the old enemy. All the pressure on coach Brendon Bolton will dissipate after a 10 goal victory.

What it means for Collingwood: Four straight wins have Collingwood within touching distance of top spot. But the team to beat this season will revive memories of the late 1990’s by succumbing to a team they simply should have overcome.

How Carlton wins: By getting its hands on the footy. North Melbourne had 128 more disposals than Carlton last Sunday. That was pure a*se and you can’t expect that it will happen again. The mighty Blues midfield will feel like it has a point to prove.

How Collingwood wins: By paying off the umpires once again.

The stat: By offering the umpires a post match drink at his place, Scott Pendlebury has won more Brownlow votes against Carlton (21) than any other side. He got three more the last time they met and I’m told the party at his place that night was out of control.

The match-up: Harry McKay v Darcy Moore

Moore has conquered some of the game’s best forwards this season and faces one of the game’s most promising youngsters on Saturday. McKay has proved himself as one of the League’s best contested marks will be at his best as he clunks plenty and slots 7 this weekend.

It’s a big week for: Jacob Weitering (Carlton)

With fellow key defender Liam Jones likely to be unavailable due to concussion, Weitering will handle the additional pressure down back with aplomb. He’s set to take on Jordan De Goey who’s going to wish he hadn’t gotten out of bed this morning.

Big call: Nathan Buckley texts Mick Malthouse at 3/4 time with the Pies down by 45 points asking what he would do.

Mottsy’s Prediction: Carlton by 60 points.

  1. Hey guys, does anyone know how Grundy scores in the wet? Currently have him as VC, but thinking the weather might favour Cripps. Who to chuck the VC on?
    TU: Grundy
    TD: Cripps


  2. Interested to see how Walsh goes against the Pies. Expecting the Blues to get smashed this week and next (vs GWS), and against two of the best midfields in the comp, he might find it tougher going. If he throws up a 60-70 today, there’ll be lots of coaches looking to trade him next week.



    Carlton: Liam Stocker, Charlie Curnow, Michael Gibbons, Will Setterfield
    Collingwood: Tom Langdon, Callum Brown, Will Hoskin-Elliott, Rupert Wills


    1. Gibbons!

      He’s named as a follower, not in the forwardline. Decent score incoming.


  4. Love the write-up Motts, couldn’t agree more mate!

    Although personally I reckon McKay will kick a lazy 10 today.

    Hoskin elliott a ghost out there!


  6. How the f*** does setters have more than Cripps with 10 less touches???? Only 2 kicks as well


  7. bombers robbed again…..climbing goal posts is a free kick ffs !!!
    there….I feel better now


    1. But is it? 17.11 only mentions *intentionally* shaking the post, not the post being shaken as an unintentional side-effect of another, legal action.

      Unless there is another rule that explicitly prohibits players from climbing the post, there was no free kick.


      1. I doubt there’s a rule that explicitly states a player isn’t allowed to bring a chainsaw onto the field and remove a post, but should that happen, I imagine, at the least, it would be a free kick.


        1. My point is that McLachlan is a dictator, rather than arguing the validity of climbing a post during a football match.


  8. Take Grundy VC score or change to Gawn?

    I’ll have to decide by 3Q time most likely due to other commitments


  9. Can someone please find me a doctor…….as a bombers fan, I’m actually barracking for blues !!


  10. Cripps fighting back – hard tag dropped …. blues really taking it to the pies!!

      1. Farts!
        Last I checked Grundy was on about 103 with five-ten minutes to go….. Put the C on Gawn thinking Grundy would only get a low 100…. Check back afterwards Grundy 141…..

        Go Gawn go you magnificent bearded beast!


  13. Tom Phillips kicked the game winner – had 34 and kicked 2.2 and has 64 points!! Champion Data is farked- the con is on

    1. how long do players get to dispose of the ball .The ever changing rules are stuffing up our once great game.


  15. do the umps know the rules.When a player gathers the ball he is given reasonable time/opp to dispose of it correctly and if players take the second option or take the game on and are tackled its holding the f…….ing ball .common umps fix this issue
