The fact that we have another opportunity next week is fantastic for the club and I'm sure the boys will learn a lot from tonight and what is required to be a successful team in September.


Agree absolutely, Jezza.

More importantly, Treolar will be much better for the run. He looked out of sorts and, despite his possession stats, was largely ineffectual. He was basically off the pace. I'm not sure if I was reading too much into it but he almost looked like he was scared of being hit in a big tackle and, as a result, appeared to rush almost every disposal.

Looking forward to next week.

^ they were onto Treloar as soon as he got the ball and gave him no time and space, resulting in the hurries kicks. Yes, should be better for the run.

Treloar was terrible, but I think playing him was the right move. We're not winning the flag without him, and he'll be much better for the run. I don't think he was scared of being tackled, I think he was just struggling with the pace of the game. He'll be better this week.

Loved reading the posts about the footy ability, guts and spirit of this side. So close but no cigar. Big chance next week. So glad to have the opportunity to be there to cheer on the boys. Let's fill it up like the tiges did last year when they played em. None of that classless booing of the weagles nuffies either. If in two minds on going, go and bring a friend or three. How good would it be to get a chance to knock of the tigers? Which they could well do. Go woods.

WHE up the ground was a good move. He was class after half time, one touch at ground level and overhead. I wouldve liked to see sstephenson be given that opportunity at some stage too though.

Yep, no matter how fit you are, you don't get "touch" without actually playing, especially in a final. Which makes Goldy's performance all the more remarkable. Experience does help

I really thought we'd win last night but of course it wasn't to be. We were gallant though, and took them all the way, forcing them to beat us. This team gave all that they could. Some lead by example while others were exposed for their lack of experience. Finals football is another level, something more than half our side will learn and benefit from. We matched it with the second best team, in a qualifying final, on their turf all night. Sure we missed opportunities but we had a red hot go and no real Collingwood supporter would deny that. The umpiring was appalling. Free kicks paid against us whenever we had a surge of momentum. We live to fight another day and hopefully slay the giants next week. Go Pies.

Anyone who thinks that we lost the game last night because we lacked effort in the last quarter has pretty much got rocks in their head!

Quite a bit of luck went the Eagles way - i.e., had Varcoe not slipped heading towards goal would've had us 10pts up, Adams concussed & going off for a spell etc., but most of all those dodgy frees plucked out some of which I have never seen awarded in my nearly 45 odd yrs of watching footy.

Let's be honest here, if at the start of the year we were all told we'd finish 4th who wouldn't be ecstatic?

Win against the Giants next Saturday night & anything is possible.
So we mightn't beat RICH the following week but I'd rather lose to them in a Prelim than a GF!

It's all good people, our players are getting the finals experience they need & will be better for it come 2019 & beyond!

I hate gallant efforts and all of the backslapping that comes with it. We fumbled, stumbled and tumbled at the most inopportune times. That was more critical to the outcome than umpires.

You are close to winning a free cactus suppository for being the most prickly arsehole on Nicks.

I donít know how much of the game you watched. The stumble of Varcoe running towards goals was caused by the ground giving way underneath his foot. If you watch the replay on HD TV you can see the muddy divot left behind from Varcoe sliding into the turf. There were numerous other incidents with players on both sides slipping and sliding on the turf. Itís a new ground with fresh grass giving rise to an unstable surface which will settle down with age. We also slipped and slided on the same ground 2 weeks ago against Fremantle. Are you implying that these werenít gallant efforts because we fumbled, stumbled and tumbled? I understand you donít like losing but you could at least recognise the efforts of the players who busting their guts on behalf of the supporters last night.

I'm admiring of efforts but my response was geared around our "controllables" vs things such as umpires and the ground. Eagles players never seemed to slip and as an umpire hater from way back (hello Peter Cameron) there were some odd decisions, however our fate was sealed by our own critical mistakes.

One of the more smarter posts in this thread.

I posted in the pre game thread that I felt this was the last match up we would want in the finals series. The eagles in Perth. They didnít finish second on the ladder from a lottery result.
The Giants at the G will be a different story. They play like we do, so we wonít have to tweak our game style. Davis is a very good player but he doesnít zone off his opponent, so he will be easier to kick around and Kelly wonít play.
Curbing Whitfield will be a priority.
I like this match up a lot more.
Bring it on.


Agreed. Iím just as heartbroken as anyone else but I like to just keep things in perspective and not let emotions dictate my judgement.

Can we just hide him at Gubby's house for the entire match?
