Cam Hooke’s Collingwood Life – Final comment: Finals Week 1

 

Firstly, a late-season welcome from the Pies’ supporters’ family to Scott. Mate, enjoy. Welcome your views and comments.

 

Things to do this week:

 

  1. Watch https://www.collingwoodfc.com.au/video/2019-08-25/believe-in-2019. The clips are great, but my best bits are the little girl and the ‘Collingwoooooood’ chant at the end.

 

  1. History
  1. From one of our list, a Cats’ supporter (thanks, John):

 

Not feeling overly confident, Cam.

 

Our finals record on Fridays v Collingwood is patchy if not worse. I can remember some shockers – and some terrible Friday night home and away matches v the Pies. Although we did sneak home in the 2007 Prelim.

 

Looking forward to an intriguing contest. Very concerned about Grundy’s influence. Blicavs may have to be a tagging ruckman! Rare!

 

 

  1. ‘Sliding Doors’ (AFL website):

If you’ve found yourself in conversations about the best premiership prospects with key officials from other clubs in the past week …
then it’s the Magpies who emerge from those chats as the most feared team.
  1. ‘The Experts’:
  1. Match Centre – https://www.afl.com.au/match-centre/2019/24/geel-v-coll. Also not going to wait for the teams.

 

Go Pies,

 

Cam
