Pre game Banter: AFL 2020 Rd 14: Carlton vs Collingwood

So, we meet the Great Enemy again, at the 'Gabba on a Sunday afternoon after a 9 day break.
We will probably be on TV, for the 4th week on the trot.
The Meat Pies have had it over us in recent times, one of the signs we were in an ordinary patch. Can we break that trend? We have done some good trend breaking of late.

If we kick like we did last night, we might be a serious trouble.
Live Long and Prosper!

I posted this earlier in the year, but we currently have a win/loss record of
127 wins
126 Losses
4 draw

.....against Collingwood. Obviously a loss would even the ledger at 127-127-4

The last time the win/loss were even between us was after the 1981 Grand Final. We have been in front since then.

Lets make sure we win this one to keep that streak alive!

Collingwood have a terrible injury list - a lot of their good players, forward, mids and backs. We would be a lock for winning this based on injuries alone. DeGoey, Howe, Quaynor, Reid, Sier, Treloar.

Mihocek, Quaynor, Roughead all 50/50. Not to mention Beams, although maybe including him isn't quite right.

How many times were Collingwood a 'lock' to beat us in the past 20 years during our dark years? How many times did we upset them?

There is no such as a lock between these 2 teams.

To say nothing of what appear to be a few off field disciplinary issues.

No Sidebottom either, gone home to be with his partner who is about to give birth, if we cant beat  this weakened Collingwood there should be a Royal Park commission....

We could improve our chances dramatically just by converting more of our goal scoring opportunities.

Not to mention a 9 day v 6 day break.

With the 9 day break it'll hopefully give Kennedy time to get back.

With Cats playing the Dogs and Saints playing the Dees I reckon a win next week could well put us in the 8.

Toughest part we have is playing 4 games in 19 days. We're sure to have a flat one in there. We play the Swans on the 3rd of those. Just a bit down there and they'll get you as, although down these days they give 100% every time the play.

Win against Swans and Crows, lose against GWS and Lions.
Pies game will determine if we make the 8 or not. Assuming everyone else beats the teams below them and loses against teams above them.

Reckon we can roll the Lions if our football life depends on it. Hopefully anyway.
