Collingwood Football Club 2017

The Collingwood Football Club began in 1892 from humble beginnings and were a foundation club of the VFL in 1897. Nicknamed the 'Magpies', they are the most popular club in the land who play their home matches at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) and club colours are the famous black and white stripe.

Collingwood has won 15 premierships throughout the years and sit third behind Essendon and Carlton who have won 16 each. Collingwood are the only team in the VFL/AFL to win four premierships in a row, with four wins from 1927 to 1930, and the Pies are still the only club to go through a full home and away season undefeated which they did in 1929.

The Pies are the most supported club in the AFL and attract more fans to their games than any other club in the league, with 50,000+ fans on average, and upwards of 90,000+ to showpiece games, such as the Anzac Day clash with Essendon or matches with arch rivals Carlton.

Collingwood 2016 Season

Collingwood had another disappointing season under coach Nathan Buckley and the yearly trend downwards is worrying for Magpie supporters. Having said that, after a poor start they managed score some memorable wins during the season against Geelong and West Coast, plus the GWS in Sydney, and endured unlucky losses against the Western Bulldogs and Hawthorn. The loss of Dane Swan and Jamie Elliott hurt the black and white, along with the inability to kick goals from kickable positions.

Up forward Alex Fasolo led the goalkicking with 25 majors from 12 games, showing the lack of potency from the Collingwood forwards. A forward line built around Jesse White is doomed for failure, and an out of favour Travis Cloke failed to grasp opportunites and is now at the Western Bulldogs.

On a positive note, Adam Treloar was outstanding in his debut season for the Magpies, gathering 673 disposals, the most for the club, while rRuckman Brodie Grundy took his game to the next level. Former Demon Jeremy Howe was also solid in defence, although his disposal at times was ordinary to say the least.

Collingwood 2016 Best and Fairest winner: Scott Pendlebury

Scott Pendlebury polled 164 votes to claim his fifth Copeland Trophy for Collingwood. Runner-up was new recruit Adam Treloar on 145 votes, while Steele Sidebottom finished third on 115 votes.

Collingwood in 2017

The Magpies play 14 games at the MCG in season 2017, which is more than handy, especially for supporters. They travel just once to Perth and Adelaide, and double up matches include Essendon, Geelong, Hawthorn, Melbourne and Port Adelaide.

Collingwood's round one match is against the Western Bulldogs and their final home and away game is against Melbourne. They have the bye in Round 13.
