It's hard to go past Licuria's one-man midfield rampage against Port. Being at Footy Park for that game was an unbelievable experience, and Licuria dominated. He stood up to cover Buckley and hardly did a thing wrong with his 40 touches.

As usual unmentioned Scotty Burns demolishing melbourne on Queens Birthday 2003. The true workman of modern Collingwood. Couldn't happen to a nicer club than the demons.

Definitely John Greening at Princes Park. I was 12 yrs old and mum let me go to the footy on my own. From that day on I always wore 22 whenever I played footy. I played for 25 more yrs, for many different clubs and still had 22. His inspiring efforts, the roar of the Collingwood faithful around me, on their turf. Man what a day!!
Next best - Lica vs Port. His efforts were absolutely awesome. I wasn't there but the TV clearly showed the desperation and determination on his face as he ran himself into the ground, urging the others to lift!

I'm sure it was Peter McKormack. I remember being in the pocket watching on and feeling sorry for him. Maybe Clayton was moved onto BT after he destroyed McKormack?

Yeh - Lica vs Port was a good one. Tarrant's goal after the siren vs Adelaide stands out in the memory too - the only time a Collingwood player has kicked a goal after the siren to win a match !! Even though he's no longer with us, McGough's Anzac Day performance in 2002 was a good one also. MM really should have played him in the GF...........

Yep I agree with you on that one Molloy looked very injured and out of place. McGough would have relished those hard contests around the grounds.

Dillo

I recall Taylor kicking 9 against Fitzroy in 86 when we scored 10 in the fisrt qtr.

And he kicked 10 on the Tiges in 86 at VP as well.

But he didnt get any other bags of exactly 10.

You could be right there. I think i'm getting 2 Collingwood-Fitzroy games in successive years at Victoria park mixed up. I stood in the exact same spot at both games, which makes it a bit harder too.


That game where James Manson starred at Victoria park and the "Charlie" chant was coming from the Rush Stand was magic.

'Was it Peter Moores stupendous Elimination Final performance demolishing Gary Dempsey in a BOG display in 1980?'

Dewdster, for some reason I think that stupendous performance was the 1979 Prelim Final out at VFL Park.
Was it when Peter Moore and Gary Dempsey kept holding each other at the centre bounces and cause of that the VFL introduced the line across the middle of the centre circle?

I do remember the Elimination Final of 1980, when Ian Lowe kicked 2 crucial goals in the last qtr to enable the Pies to win, I think it was by about 11 points.
We then went on to thrash Carlton in the first semi by 50 odd points and beat Geelong by about a kick in the 1980 Prelim when they were red hot favourites to beat us.
We were the first team from 5th place to make the GF.
I won't mention the GF, Hafey destroyed them in an 2 hour session on the Thursday before the GF.

How about Ricky Barham's 5 goal debut on the wing against Hawthorn at $12million dollar debt park in 1977? I think 3 were bananas. After that game people started believing the Hafey magic was real.

Heaps of games by Daics. The only player who made all of my mates and I laugh with his brilliance. Sometimes he was so amazing we were in hysterics (and shock). A class above everyone else on the ground till the end of his career. For pure entertainment value, his goal in the 90 qualifiying final against the Eagles was like an unforgettable orgasm. No, its not an exaggeration!

I was at Moorabin to see Carman turn it on that day; a performance never to be forgotten. I have always rated it as the single most brilliant performance by ANY player, Collingwood or not. It is, I think, one of the greatest wastes of talents, the Phil Carman story. He never really showed the football world of what he was capable, except on that Saturday at Moorabin.
Perhaps the one performance before that was Collingwood's third quarter against Carlton at Princes Park in (I think) 1969.
It was a 12 goal quarter with Greening starring and with my brother and I sitting in the Carlton stand behind the goals. How we got out alive still baffles me, because we really gave it to 'em that afternoon. That quarter had everything, including REAL fistfights; Nicholls was given a beauty that day as was that Carlton thug, Vin Waite.
Those two Saturdays have never been beaten; for me, as a teenager then, those performances promised so much. Growing up a Magpie in the 60s and 70s was a real treat. Ok we never won a GF, but the team was always in the top 4 and always won the great majority of its games. We got great value for 20 years. I have to admire the young supporters these days though. Their Collingwood loses more than it wins, looks as far away as ever to winning a flag and yet they still turn up in their thousands week after week.
Watching from afar as I do now, the Collingwood roar still gaves me the shakes and I can only think how club administrators from Richmond, Melbourne, Footscray, North Melbourne etc etc, must wish their supporter base had but a fraction of the Collingwood Army's passion and pride.
Keep it up kids!

That was the game that got the centre line introduced, but no, Moore did nothing of note that day except wrestle Dempsey down at the centre bounces.

In the 1980 Elimination final, Moore took about 16 marks and had nearly 30 possessions.

Through my child eyes at the time, I was in awe.

Neil, here is my article from 2004 on the 1969 game.

BLUES HUMILIATED AS MAGPIES ROAR HOME

Carlton v Collingwood R4 26 April 1969

After three rounds of the 1969 season, Collingwood had just won their first game against lowly Melbourne after going down in the opener to the Hawks and then falling short of the Tigers in the last quarter at Victoria Park. It was an inauspicious start after a disappointing 1968 where the Pies missed the finals for the first time in 5 years under Coach Bob Rose.

In contrast, the Blues were sitting on top of the ladder undefeated and were the reigning premiers after their 3 point triumph over Essendon in the 1968 Grand Final.

The two arch enemies were drawn to play at Princes Park on the day after Anzac Day. The ground had not been a happy hunting ground for Collingwood in the previous three seasons.

Collingwood made 3 changes from the team that downed Melbourne the week before. Out went young half back John Bell and rover Danny Hibbert who were both injured, whilst second string ruckman Vaughan Ellis was dropped to 20th man. Collingwood forward Ian Graham who had only had one game of football in two years was rushed back into the team in what was seen as a calculated risk. He had not played senior football since the 1966 Grand Final in a year when he was Collingwood’s leading goalkicker with 58 goals. He missed 1967 because he was overseas working and then missed 1968 due to a ruptured achilles tendon for which he needed two operations. In his first game back in the Reserves against Melbourne the week before he kicked 11 goals.

Another important inclusion for this game was Graeme Jerker Jenkin who had recovered from a knee injury from Round 1. The third inclusion was first gamer, young wingman Jeff Pitts. What a game to make your debut in! The Collingwood team was

B. Brian McKenzie Shane Whelan Terry Waters
HB Lee Adamson Ted Potter John Greening
C Ricky Watt Barry Price Colin Tully
HF Des Tuddenham Ian Graham Con Britt
F Graeme Jenkin Peter McKenna Jeff Pitts

R Len Thompson Ross Dunne
R Wayne Richardson

19th Max Urqhuart 20th Vaughan Ellis


Carlton were raging favourites but the Magpies were not with some support. The biggest query was on the Magpie backline which was seen as not being able to hold the Carlton forward line which boasted names such as Jeasaulenko, Robertson, Quirk, Ricky McLean and Ian Nicoll. It was also thought the Blues backline of Collins, Walls, Hall, McKay and Kerr could hold the Pies. Carlton had only 2 weeks earlier kicked a then record score of 30 30 210 against Hawthorn.

Thompson was seen as the key to the Magpie hopes after he had hit some form at last the week before. But he was up against Big Nick.

It was a tight and fast opening as Carlton wont he toss and kick to the Heatley Stand end. It ended up with the forward lines dominating and Carlton went to a lead of 41 to 33.

The second quarter was much the same with the Blues taking a 5 point lead in at the main change. Neither team had been able to get a break and the pressure was intense. The Pies were playing well away from home and teaming together without anyone being overly outstanding. Thompson was holding his own in the ruck and it was thought that while he did that the Pies were an outside chance.

The Pies were a chance alright. The first half had been tough, fast and uncompromising. But in one of the most scintillating quarters the Pies have ever played away from home the completely dominated a bamboozled Carlton kicking an amazing 12 5 77 to 0 2 2 in a quarter that those present still remember fondly and talk about to this day.

Old timers said to score 12 5 77 against Carlton at Carlton in one quarter where the Blues only kicked 2 behinds, revived memories of Collingwood’s great teams of the past. Collingwood president Tom Sherrin told the players afterwards, “I have never been prouder of a Collingwood side. I have never seen the Magpies play better”.

Collingwood ran out the game as 64 point winners 23 15 153 to 13 11 89. Ron Barassi said the Blues were not as good as they thought they were.

When the teams cam out for the second half there was nothing to indicate that Carlton were well and truly about to have their faces and their reputation rubbed into the stinking Princes Park turf. Collingwood took control of the game with great speed and control of the ball. Carlton could hardly touch it. One minute Carlton was 5 points ahead. Only nine minutes later it was four goals behind. And the much lauded Blues defence was in tatters as it disintegrated under the Collingwood onslaught.

Here is how Collingwood scooted ahead:- one goal in 1 minute, four goals in 9 minutes, eight goals in 17 minutes, 10 goals in 20 minutes and 12.5 for the quarter.

Captain Des Tuddenham, ruck rover John Greening (who mischievously had been selected on the half back flank) and rover Wayne Richardson, led the third quarter charge with three goals each for the quarter. Deputy Vice Captain Richardson’s 3 goals were scored in the space of three minutes. He had been quiet before that but Tuddenham and Greening were already starring in the first half and they continued on with the business in the classic third quarter.

At half time Bob Rose switched Ian Graham to full forward and Peter McKenna to centre half forward which resulted in the attack looking more lively.

But it was the centre bounce clearances where Collingwood took a stranglehold on the quarter and the game. They generated drive which led to the Blues being brushed aside as if they were the Little League Blues. Jerka Jenkin took the knock outs and Colin Tully was instrumental in getting a lot of the centre clearances.

The last quarter saw the frustration in the Blues emerge and it looked likely to become a last man standing affair. Len Thompson and Ted Potter were reported along with Carlton
Ricky McLean and Peter Jones. The charges were laid by 5 umpires Thompson was reported for hitting Vin Waite, and Ted Potter for hitting Nicholls resulting in 6 stitches to hi eye.

The charges were to be thrown out after the umpires failed to lodge the report sheets in time in what proved a major embarrassment to the VFL.

After the game Bob Rose was satisfied that the mid week planning for the game had all fallen into place nicely. He said, “We had Carlton tabbed after a big meeting on Thursday night. No matter what and how many switched Carlton made, we were prepared for them and could come up with an answer. All our players knew exactly what to do and what was required”.

Bobby described the win as the best in his time as coach and he likened it to the effort of the Magpies defeating Geelong in the 1953 Grand Final some 16 years earlier.

Collingwood had a number of stars out of the game. John Greening was the big star for Collingwood getting kicks at will and ending up with 7 goals as ruck rover. He was unanimously best on ground. Thompson, Britt, Tuddenham, Jenkin and Tully were great for the Pies.

In a post script and not surprisingly, Len Thompson was spat on by angry Carlton supporters after the game as he walked from the Collingwood rooms to the Carlton rooms for the after match get together. During the walk Thompson was subjected to a barrage of abuse then as he walked up the race, a Carlton supporter who had followed Thompson across the ground spat at him.



Carlton v Collingwood
6 5 41 5 3 33
10 7 67 9 8 62
10 9 69 21 13 139
13 11 89 23 15 153

Best: Greening (best on ground) Waters, Jenkin, Tully, Adamson, Tuddenham, Thompson, Britt.

Goals: Greening 7, Tuddenham 3, Waters 3, Wayne Richardson 3, Graham 3, McKenna 2, Britt Jenkin.
