Andy Collins is a very smart and astute coach with a great record. He will have the seagulls ready to go.

What is Andy Collins record ??

Arguably the best VFL coach since Fitzy gave it away !!

We might be from the bush. but we ain't green

Premiership with Sandy in 1985 as a player. Premierships at Hawthorn 86/88/89/91
Coached the zebras to flag in 97. Has had a flag with the seagulls in 2015. Did well with West Adelaide. Was coach at Mitcham in EFL. Was Coburg's coach in 2007 last GF played at Princes Park since returning this year.
Can hopefully add another flag on Sunday.

Ohh Digsy we all know Garry Ayers has been the best coach in the VFL since 2008.

I have a idea, why doesn't Williamstown also claim their 2nds, 3rds and Junior premierships, ad that to the count to make themselves look like the premier club of the competition? That way they can further promote themselves as going for 45 (or whatever the number is). 

I think we can all see the point made by Comeng, whilst it is true that Williamstown is going for their 17th premiership it is misleading. When all 16 are lumped together it makes the bandwagon supporters think that they were won in the same division.

And yes they do stand alone, several years after Frankston. They stand alone a few years after Port showed that a stand alone can win the premiership, heck even Coburg went stand alone before them. After being the second last club to stand alone, it's almost amusing that they use this title. The original and true stand alone is Frankston followed by Port.

17 PREMIERSHIPS, 33 x GRAND FINALISTS, 21 X Runners up

THE VFLS MOST SUCCESSFUL CLUB - THE MIGHTY PORT MELBOURNE BOROUGH!

I'M PORT MELBURNE BORN, I'M PORT MELBOURNE BRED, I'LL BE PORT UNTIL I'M DEAD!!!

The only true stand alone club is Frankston. God bless Bryan Mace ....

The important thing is that Willy, Port, Coburg, Werribee woke up to the AFL clubs raping them and got out and salvaged their clubs intact.

Completely agree Bearsman.  That is why I think #westandalone is Frankston's.

Can only laugh at the Port fans getting worked up about Willy being on 17 premierships! Don't worry guys, you'll still be in first place!

What about the country teams that have played in several leagues and have won flags in the various leagues. These are all Premierships. The way I look at it there is five standalone teams. I want all of the standalone teams to do well. Box Hill, Preston, Springvale have no hope of being alone and the zebras will be in the same boat unless they do something in next two years. The dolphins can definitely claim they have never been aligned to an AFL team. Remember when Saade Ghazi stated no standalone club will ever win a VFL flag. Since that statement Port have win twice and the seagulls now going for their second since that statement. Werribee can easily improve enough next year to rate a real threat. Coburg are improving on and off the field. Frankston are almost out of debt and are on the way up. Will take them several seasons but they can slowly build on and off the field. Tassie will be re joining in 2021. The devils will be back.
