    Agreed - I think the club has made a concerted effort over the past year or two to reach out to past players and welcome them back as part of the fabric of the club - as any normal club would do. I don’t think this has always been the case in recent times - especially when you think of how poorly James MacDonald was treated by the old regime. Just another step on the road to being a great club once more.

    Good on him, top bloke Jeff. And his son is not far off Chell's height at 11!!!

    They seemed to score quite freely against us on Queens Birthday...

    Shout Out to MFC Media Dept & FC Management

    Have not put a foot wrong this finals series. Social media has had plenty of great content and we haven't been left in the dark about issues that have arisen. Spot on.

    The Other Preliminary Final

    Think the Richmond forwards will just be a bit much for the Pies backline in the end. I do think it will be a tough contest though.

    The support coming from the past players and coaches has been fantastic and I’m glad the Club has embraced it. There is an atmosphere around the place that I’m sure hasn’t been there since the heady days of the late 1950’s and early 1960’s. Hopefully it inspires the playing group for 2 more games.
  9. I would only do this late in quarters to try and arrest some momentum. We did it late in the third quarter last week and Tmac marked the ball in the backline on the 3/4 time siren. However you don't remove a 4 goals a week forward out of your forwardline, and rely on a 20 game player to replace those shots on goal.

    Where will you be watching The Big Game

    Anyone around Wangaratta want to watch at a local pub?
  12. It's a tough pill to swallow for Bayley. He does so much right. He uses the ball so well and competes in the air but he's not a natural defender and his one on one work (where finals are won and lost) has not developed yet. I have no doubt Goody would have told him he's got a long career ahead of him. Such a natural footballer who already has so many of the attributes for him to build on in the coming years. Smith is the perfect player to run with Darling. He can run with him further up the ground where Darling is so damaging and match his athleticism. It's a big task of someone with very little big game let along many afl game experience.

    Great place to live and bring up a family not the best place to visit without knowing a local who knows all the haunts. And a shocking sense of having a chip on their shoulders about their sporting teams but otherwise Great weather Great local sporting facilities Best beaches in the world and As others have said Great Sunday sessions

    GF Ballot Barcode

    Only if you want to go to the GF! I don't know when they do the ballot or take the cash, so I don't know how soon after you will need to sell the kids and the missus to have the cash in your account at the pleasure of Ticketek. Anyone know how soon after our game this is all done??

    Match Preview and Team Selection - Preliminary Final

    So, if that is the case, there is a job for Hibberd, Nev and Frosty: wipe out his other leg! Bring him down to size and I'd reckon, not too many pack marks or leads off the knees?

    The Other Preliminary Final

    Got this awful feeling in the pit of my stomach that the filth might cause a massive upset here... I’d love to play the pies in a grand final. How good would it be watching Eddie sob as chunk and goody lift the cup

    GF Ballot Barcode

    I managed to get into the ballot at Cat 3 Our children were Cat 2 im thinking because they had home and away memberships as part of our country member 5 game package. This meant that they could enter as children but would have no adults with them! So we all drop to cat 3. Im thinking if others have the same as me the guys without kids who are cat 2 will have a better chance! Do we seriously need to have 400×8 in our bank account if we win?

    Martin Flanagan's Ode to the MFC

    Absolutely awesome stuff! Yep, brought me to tears, too! Also reminded me of Rupert McCall's work a few years back, and I reckon it deserves a reprise... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vj-s_A_gmOc The MFC has a great history. Never forget, the MFC started this great game! The rules of the game are officially known as "The Rules of the Melbourne Football Club"! We need to be proud of of our history! And, we need to be proud of our boys as they add a new page to that glorious history! GO DEES!!!
  19. Not having a go at you but his play is much more influential than just the stats he gets. For a start he is a hard match up. He is quick, can jump and take a good mark, tackles well and can kick. If you watch closely he, Spargo and Melksham will often be the front and centre players for when the ball gets spoiled. He is part of the reason we are unpredictable in our fwd line.

    The Other Preliminary Final

    Just don’t think Pies are capable of scoring enough to challenge the Tigers Tigers are a high scoring club, as are we Should be a cracking game

    The Other Preliminary Final

    Agree. I was at the Pies/GWS game last week and IMHO I thought we would have definitely beaten the Pies had we been playing them.
  22. Was extremely confident pre match against Cats, quite confident against Hawks. Started this week more hoping than anything but my tune has changed. It's a massive challenge but I think we'll win. All the talk is about the addition of Darling and JK. Problem for them is the ball is less likely to get to them with the addition of Viney. He is playing like a man possessed since returning from injury. Then there is our belief. The team now exudes it, and I reckon the supporters are feeling it for the first time in half a century. It's our time.

    WELCOME TO THE MELBOURNE FOOTBALL CLUB - BAYLEY FRITSCH

    feel sorrow for him, not his fault he was shifted away from his favourite position to role play in the backline
