Title: Who can beat them?

Who can beat Collingwood? Will anybody? They just look too good ATM.

I reckon they will remain undefeated until they play Carlton for the second time then will be beaten

Pies will lose a match, they may not even finish top. Top 4 is all we're aiming for :)

The Roos and Power aren't contenders. Let's play the real boys

Have loved the way they have gone about it.
No need to keep the lid on it, saying you are going for top 4? You are going for the B2B. :P

I know they will lose a match but who and when ???
Title: Re: Who can beat them?
Post by: ossie85 on April 04, 2011, 05:33:35 AM

Yeah B2B is clearly the aim! But you only need the top 4 to have a shot at it.

Never flirt with form, it is fleeting.

We are in April, so much can happen in a year just ask poor Lenny Hayes. If we are playing as well as we are now in early September, then we'll be talking it up.  For now the season hasn't even started, feels like we've played two NAB cup games.

I think Melbourne may have a chance at beating us, they have a knack of playing brilliant footy when up against us. Or we may have one really embaressing  game and get bowled over by the Suns ha.

Oh but all the talk from your club was that you did care, that you did try your guts out.


Collingwood didn't. ;) I'm calling it now just for you. Collingwood by 39+ points. Go to your local TAB and chuck the bet down on the sure money for ANZAC Day.

The 'Anzac Day Clash' Pies vs Dons has been going on since 1995. In 2009 the Don's won with Zahk kicking the winning goal 14 seconds on the clock in the pouring rain. Making it a tie 7 a piece, with one draw in 1995. 2010 we thrashed the Dons and now it it 8-7 Pies favour.

What exactly are you going to muster up. Might be a fair call now that you have Hirdy and his brilliant strategic mind. And really c'mon you think MM is going to let it showdown like 2009 again. We had Frasier in ruck playing back then.

NOT gonna happen ha.

Not to mention that unfortgetable in the back call on Anthony Rocca which cost us a sure goal at the top of the goal square.

Anzac day is coming but the talk at this stage should be about unveiling the flag tonight and hopefully flogging Carlton.

The strange thing about Essendon supporters is they think Collingwood fans really hate them, most of us don't especially compared to Carlton. Essendon v Collingwood aren't even traditional rivals!

As for Carlton that's another matter. Carlton & Collingwood supporters agree on one thing, beating the other side is just a beautiful thing. Go Pies!

But MissPies in what I have judged in your warm and generous personality, the only flaw that I've perceived in your good self is an unexplainable soft spot for Carlton!! It's quite a flaw but we should move on. I think we can assume we'll account for the Tigers, then we can focus on ANZAC day where I think we are all united in our outlook.

Post by: ossie85 on May 01, 2011, 09:35:05 AM

The Hawks have always played well against Collingwood (being the last team to beat them, albeit in a dead-rubber).

The Cats haven't done anything wrong, and the Dogs, Saints, Dockers, Swans, Blues and Bombers could all beat the Pies given certain conditions.

Malthouse knows this. The players know this. Complacency isn't going to happen which helps, but even the best teams in history lose games.

How can we lose with Leroy Brown kicking 3 goals in 5 minutes? Always been a superstar

Title: Re: Who can beat them?
Post by: ossie85 on May 22, 2011, 04:09:19 PM

Yeah, cos really bad teams can do 73 point turn-arounds. Collingwood played really badly against Adelaide and won by 43 points. Played really bad against the undefeated Geelong and almost won.

... Pies and Cats are clearly the best 2 teams.

Neil Craig has got to stop telling his charges to look at a match as a glass half full, it's only when the water runneth over that you can truly drink from the winning cup.
3/4 effort was Adelaide's best 3/4 effort this year, the last 1/4 was Collingwood's best 1/4 effort.
Collingwood was like watching Stallone in 'Over The Top' when he'd almost look he was about to lose an arm wrestle and then just decided 'flower this, I'm going to finish this now!'
