VFL Preview: Elimination Final (Magpies vs Zebras)

For the second year running, our VFL side has qualified for the finals. Being one of the online Magpie fraternity’s resident VFL watchers (although by no means do I consider myself an expert), I have taken it upon myself to follow on from last year’s effort and author a preview of this week’s do-or-die elimination …

Game Day: Collingwood vs Greater Western Sydney (Round 22, 2014)

Good morning, fellow Magpies. This is your Game Day thread for today’s clash with GWS. Too little on the intro? Well, I’d like to say more, but on advice from counsel, I will refrain from saying much more, under threat of censure by the House of Representatives Un-Collingwood Activities Committee. These people don’t mess around …

Stars Fall; the Season goes Supernova; a Pulsar Fades to Black

In a messy display on the MCG we kept our hopes for another September appearance alive after nudging out a Port Adelaide outfit stricken with a form slump and something else of a more virulent nature. A week later we travelled west, where we were barely competitive before returning back to the MCG to receive the mother of all hidings from the Lions and whatever God oversees the health and fitness of athletes in our corner of the world.

Thoughts on the Past Fortnight

It has been a couple of weeks since I last wrote something for the blog and in that time, we’ve experienced another disappointing loss to Adelaide followed by a more heartening – albeit fairly messy – victory over Port Adelaide.  We currently sit just inside the eight, forced to view every one of our remaining …

Game Day: Collingwood vs Port Adelaide (Round 19, 2014)

Good day, fellow Collingwood supporters, this is your Game Day thread for this vitally important clash against Port Adelaide at the MCG, in the lovely, ultra family-friendly Sunday twilight timeslot of 4:40pm. No television producers were harmed in the making of that acerbic, sarcastic remark… I won’t go any further into putting labels on this …

Game Day: Collingwood vs Adelaide (Round 18, 2014)

Good morning fellow TCB readers. Welcome to your Game Day thread for this late-July elimination final of sorts between Collingwood and Adelaide to complete Round 18. After that miserable, pathetic excuse of a football performance 13 days ago, we’ve had to stew in our juices for the last fortnight as we look ahead to the …

Saluting a Skipper

There is little doubt that it is has been a difficult week for all Magpie fans, having endured the spectacle of our team being dismantled by the Bombers.  The tone took a sombre turn a few days after that loss, with our most recent premiership skipper being forced to hang the boots up after suffering …
