With the Aussie football season climaxing with the grandfinal between the two best teams in the league, Collingwood 'magpies' and St.Kilda 'saints', who is your tip to win this years Premiership Flag? I'm a pies fan by the way, it's been 20 years since their last premiership, don't hold that against me though, so c'mon barrack for your team, pick the winner.
Pretty sure it's going to be the pies, they seem to be in excellent form towards the end of the season. The underdogs are definately the saints and there form has been waining towards the end of the season. I'd like the saints to win but they had more chance last year . Wouldn't want to see Mick Malthouse crying at the end for losing again.
Good onya LeonJane, The pies do seem to have the best form going into the game, but, the Saints played pretty well against the Bulldogs last week. I just hope it's a great game to watch. Oh, and the Pies by 12 points. I don't wanna see Mick shed a tear either.
Well, I do agree with you Pearldiver on that, I think the Dragons are on a roll, have to beat the Tigers first. But. let's stay focused on the 'more important' Aussie Rules match up here mate. Any thoughts on who'll win the AFL grandfinal, hint, Magpies perhaps?
Ahh, I was waiting for your post here. G'day Earnest. Your not suggesting a bout of the Collywobbles are ya? It's almost been 20 years to the day we won our last flag, although it could have been more recent, so I'll concede it has happened a few times before, snatching defeat from victory that is.
=)Funny that, Blues supporters, or any other supporter for that matter, of a team other than Collingwood can never bring themselves to back the Pies. I'd like to see the Maggies win, but, I wouldn't be overly bent if the Saints took the honors, they deserve it too.
Following Manchester United's come back from two-nil down at Bloomfield Road versus Blackpool, do you think Old Trafford's class of 2011 can emulate Arsenal and win the Premiership title without loosing a game?
I have been trying to analyse this topsy-turvy season in an attempt to establish whether teams have generally improved or if the top teams in particular are weaker. Certainly, financial constraints have limited...
