Game Chat – Essendon vs Melbourne

Written by Thommo on June 26 2021

Where and when: MCG, Saturday 26th June at 7:25pm (AEST)

Last time they met: Rd 18, 2020: Melbourne 10.8 (68) def Essendon 7.7 (49) at Metricon Stadium

Last five H2H: Melbourne 3 – Essendon 2

Match Preview: This match should be a cracker with two teams trying to nail down a position in the top 8, albeit at opposite ends. The Bombers are playing exciting footy and remain in contention for the top 8, especially if the Package keeps playing for a large contract boost. The Dees still head the ladder and will continue to do so if they can stop dropping games to teams outside the top 8.

If Melbourne wants to remain the team to beat, they will win this match comfortably, but this is Melbourne we are talking about.

They know how to disappoint their fans like few other clubs, but I am keeping the faith!

Thommo Watch: 

Max, Oliver, May and Petracca.

Merrett, Ridley and Parish. Hopefully not Stringer.

Thommo’s Tip:  Melbourne by 24points (tipping record 21.5/39).

  1. Max should go well with out the needing to carry my Captains duties this week.

    Ridley under pressure from Highmore for his spot on field so I expect him to lift.

    Fully expecting Oliver and Parish to punish non owners ( me ) again.

    Stringer ( yo yo ) to sub ton.

    I jumped off Langford for Danger, I just couldn’t trust his role going forward. lets see if he punishes me early.


  2. Traded in Draper this week as I needed a ruckman with Reeves not playing.
    He’s on -5 at 1/4 time.
    Not exactly what I had in mind :-((


  3. Draper has gone from stud to dud in the space of a week.
    I guess he is matched up on Gawn but dropping uncontested marks….c’mon man. You’re a professional footballer


  4. Hate making excuses when it comes to umpiring, however I thought that was piss poor form from the umps. Gee Melbourne are a boring team to watch


  5. Umpires need to be accountable 4 there shit decisions We the footy public deserve better The holding the ball decisions are pathetic incorrect disposal and the time allowed to dispose of the pill is destroying our once great game
