Essendon Football Club debacle


Essendon versus Bulldogs

Whilst the Western Bulldogs were simply spectacular in AFL Saturday nigh clash, the real story here is Essendon FC. It had to be seen to be believed in our AFL Betting Tips Saturday night clash between Essendon and Bulldogs.

Essendon Football Club – 21 unanswered goals against

Lets set the scene shall we as Essendon as Essendon scored the opening goal in the first 20 seconds of the game. The Western Bulldogs then piled on 21 unanswered goals from the 9 minute mark of the opening quarter to the 18 minute mark of the final quarter. They totally mauled Essendon at Marvel Stadium.

Essendon Football Club – second worst goals against in AFL history

It was the second worst run of unanswered goals in the history of the game sitting only behind Fremantle who conceded 23 goals in a row against Geelong last year. It just simply is difficult to believe that Essendon can be this bad. We have always talked about the Essendon downhill skiing one way offensive high octane football. But their defensive ability has always been questioned. It had improved of late but was shocking Saturday night. The Bulldogs just counterpunched all night and Essendon had next to no defensive action. Essendon totally lacked any desire/structure to stop the onslaught.

Essendon and Worsfold…where to now

Essendon are still a game clear inside the AFL Top 8 but hopes are fading fast. When a team gives no effort like that the coaches head comes into question. It is not the first time Worsfold has been under pressure this year. Club great and media identity Matthew Lloyd had Worsfold gone at round 1. Whilst we thin round one is a bit rough, there must be serious questions over Worsfold’s tenure.

He did handle it manfully at the post game press conference. Sometimes however, the anger and pressure builds as the week goes on after a loss like that. Essendon play Fremantle away and then a massive one against Collingwood to make the AFL Final 8. Lets see how they respond but rest assured this was an Essendon disaster.

Western Bulldogs – on a role

The Bulldogs have a must win game against the Giants next week and it could come down to their AFL Betting Tips final round game against Adelaide as to whether they can make the AFL Finals! The Bulldogs have put themselves only percentage out of the AFL top 8 with that win making up a staggering 7% in that game alone.
