    ANZAC Matchday Thread: Collingwood V Essendon @ MCG (2:40pm, Wednesday 25th April)

    Collingwood 25.16 (166) d Essendon 14.8 (92), Round 19, 2011, at the MCG

    I/C: Ricky Dyson, Sam Lonergan, Ben Howlett, Cory Dell'Olio
    Emg: Henry Slattery, Travis Colyer, Luke Davis

    In: Jake Carlisle
    Out: Michael Hurley



    My preview:

    The marquee match of the home and away season is upon us again, and with just a 4 day turnaround for both teams, this match will truly test the depth of both Collingwood and Essendon. Both teams won last weekend with Essendon taking a major scalp in Carlton, while Collingwood overcame a massive week off the field to win rather easily against Port Adelaide. The real story of this match will be the injurys that have plagued both teams so far this season. Essendon have had a speight of soft-tissue niggles, while the Pies face more longer term pain with several players ruled out for the 2012 season. The Dons will want to get on top in the ruck division, as they did against Carlton and give their midfielders first use of the ball. For the Pies, Scott Pendelbury loves the ANZAC Day stage and will surely be looking to put in another good performance.

    As for team selection, Buckley has stated that Nathan Brown will make an apperance for the first time in 18 months, and this couldnt have come at a better time for the Pies. Alan Didak is also in the mix for a return. For the Dons, Michael Hurley has been confirmed to missing this match, with Dempsey among others ready for a return to the big stage.

    Can the Pies keep their good ANZAC Day form going or can the Dons keep this unbeatan run going and claim another big scalp. Should be a ripper!

    Weather:


    Rain easing MIN 9 MAX 17

    Cloudy. Rain with heavy falls over the eastern suburbs, easing to scattered showers during the morning. Winds southwesterly up to 40 km/h decreasing to 25 km/h later in the evening.

    My tip:

    This will be a hard slog for both teams with heavy rain predicted, but infront of a massive crowd on the big stage, the Pies will be too good for the battered Bombers. This will be close, but the Collingwood footy club will have a strong final quarter and win by 3-5 goals.

    Collingwood by 27

    Good work by the Pies - mentioned on Twitter than Didak was very, very likely, only to bring in Ugle instead.

    Essendon by 21.

    Interesting that the Pies choose to debut a player in an ANZAC Day clash.

    Because we want discussion to take place?

    But I request a title change to 'the day before the matchday thread'

    Essendon by 20, but will pick up a few more soft tissue injuries. Anzac day medal to go to Jobe.
    How does it feel to be Tottenham? How does it feel to be small? You sold Bale. We signed Mesut Özil, Mesut Özil, Mesut Özil.

    I think if the pies lose by 4 + goal there will be another fiasco about bucks when really I think it would be a respectable result.

    Is all the talk about unrest in the Collingwood camp regarding Buckley true? I've read a lot about it, but you never know what to believe these days?
