View Full Version : AFL - New coach at Essendon
I can't believe that the new Essendon coach got rid of Mark Johnson! He is one of my favourite players...hard as! Apparently another 4 players have not had their contracts renewed, but I only know that Kepler Bradly is one of them.
It's going to be an interesting season for the Bombers, with Matthew Knights coming on board. I don't know if I am really happy about that...as it felt like Sheedy was let go for no reason - as they didn't have anyone else specifically in mind.
Oh well, I suppose fresh blood might be just what the red & black need?
Come on the Bombers 2008!:smiliedance:
By the sound of it, a lot of people can't believe that the coach actually got the job!
The best thing that will have happened to Essendon will be Gary Ayres going!
OH NOOOOO...not 'little Johnno'!!!! :eek:
He's my favourite. Like Dennis Cometti once said about him, "He could pick a fight in an empty room" :laughing: I love his tenacity.
I don't know about Matthew Knights, I'm still pretty bitter about Sheeds getting the boot - I'm 34 and he's the only coach I've ever 'known'...I really didn't see it coming and didn't think that Knights was going to get the job!
It will take me a while to warm to him.
I too have only known Sheeds. But I have half been expecting it for a while....although it was still a shock.
I don't expect that Bombers will climb the ladder quickly with Knights, however he wants to get into the top 8 within the next 2 years....
I know - I too loved Johnno (pocket rocket!).....he was tough as...i used to love watching him and Soleman play - they both knew how to tackle.

Oooooohhhh...Solomon...such a 'dirty boy'! :p :D
HA HA HA! I loved him when he was playing for the bombers. Not bad on the eye, either! LOL
