Game Chat – Carlton v Western Bulldogs

Written by Thommo on June 15 2019

Where and when: Marvel Stadium, Saturday, June 15, 7.25pm AEST

What it means for Carlton: After a morale-boosting victory last week, the Blues will be hoping to show it was no flash in the pan. Another win here could be massive for caretaker David Teague’s hopes of keeping the job full-time.

What it means for Western Bulldogs: The bye came at the perfect time for the Bulldogs, who had lost three straight games going into it. Refreshed and reenergised, they simply have to snap that streak against the Blues. 

The stat: Due to a quirk in the fixture, this will be the third time the Western Bulldogs have met Carlton in its last 14 games.

The match-up: Patrick Cripps v Marcus Bontempelli

Two of the best young midfielders in the competition, this pair loves playing against each other and are frequently matched at stoppages. Cripps got the better of the dual in round five, winning 37 disposals and 11 clearances.

It’s a big week for: Harry McKay

The imposing Carlton forward was best on ground when these two sides last met. Simply unstoppable in the air, he finished with four goals, 20 disposals, 11 marks and five contested marks. Another performance like that could lift the Blues to victory.

Thommo’s Tip: Western Bulldogs by 10 points.

    Carlton: Paddy Dow, Marc Murphy, Nic Newman, David Cuningham
    Western Bulldogs: Hayden Crozier, Toby McLean, Patrick Lipsinki, Tory Dickson


  2. Formative game for my score this week.

    Got VC Cripps, Walsh, Setterfield, Dunkley, Gardner and Macrae.


  3. Petrevski-Seton crapped himself in the contest n just watched the dogs walk it out of the back line ,
    that wont help the blues confidence


    1. Hey Wighty
      Took Fyfe’s score but still wouldn’t mind good score from Cripps.
      Can you believe 38% of coaches still don’t own Cripps


  4. My Bulldogs supporter friend always raved about Lipinski… and how he should be in the side.

    Beginning to see why


  5. na
    blues dropped their bundle as soon as Petrevski-Seton stepped out the way of the contested ball & let the dogs take the footy


    1. To anyone watching teh game, is Toby Mclean playing midfield?

      He apparently had a promise he’d play more mid in the second half of the year


      1. I reckon he’ll be dropped before he gets MID-time. That shoulder pre-byes last year has been his undoing!
        Surely nobody owns him?
        As for you PJ … you are so contentious. 🙂


    1. I didn’t based on the rest of the draw but… if he goes for 200 tonight that’s going to cover alot of sub par games against the better teams.


    2. Actually not bothered where my C is. He’ll cover it against those who don’t have him 🙂


    1. totally. Last week they had 3 guys run amok. Sherrif Dunkley is in town and order has been restored.

  7. Annoyed that I picked C Daniel over J Dunkley after planning on J Dunkley replacing L Baker for a while. But the positive is the Daniel trade allowed me to grab D Clarke instead of B Bewley.


  8. geez , blues players are kidding themselves if they think they’re fooling any one ,
    just because Petrevski-Seton ran & hid under the stairs when the heat was on ,
    doesn’t mean the rest of the team can go on holiday ,
    if i was a supporter i would be absolutely livid with their effort ,
    no crunching tackles , no crashing packs , no head down hard ball gets ,
    just waiting for the easy balls ,
    yes they are young , but there is a very soft element about this team


    1. Im going to say this Carlton should target Jarryd Roughead from Hawthorn for his leadership role and his skills on the field that can help Carlton alot


      1. Yep…def a great pickup for a team looking to rebuild. I hear he’s getting 10 poss each week at box Hill.


    2. Still early. Felt the same way about the Saints a quarter and a half in. Last quarter pressure was enormous.
      Still on


  9. Was on track for a great score until “please don’t tag me”Cripps showed up to totally f&$k things over and good ol Libba going down!ffs!!!!!!


    1. Yeah same ill just enjoy the game you can see the blue improving wish it was with Bolts but Teague doing good
