    I really want Melbourne to win too make a bad week a little bit better. My 88 year old mother is currently in hospital after having her appendix removed on Monday. I will be visiting her on the way to the game. A win would really lift my spirits. CARN THE DEMONS.

    In addition to Gawn Oliver Brayshaw and Hogan's games I liked Spargos game. The kid is just a footy player, that goal he kicked to the city end was classic criminal, got front and centre and read the play beautifully.

    I flew up from tassy to watch this game, and Oliver just left me speechless. He is SUCH A STAR! He's an absolute magician with his hands, and just watching him was worth my air fare today!

    I'm going to go left field and suggest that Goodwin evolved a little today. He did something very counter-Simon today; he actually changed the game ..mid game. A lot of his style has been men at the ball...this fills a stat sheet but often congests players ( ours ) and provides an imbalance favouring the opposition. They get clear skies to spread...we chase. He (SG) addressed our ineffectiveness by reversing the situation. He's learnt something ( possibly ) ...it's not he who necessarily wins the ball succeeds... it's he who controls it. 2nd half we had ball on a string. Again stats are rubbish lmho as there's no dynamic context. Footy....it's really not that complicated.

    Would be really happy for JKH and the MFC if he can step up and cement himself as an AFL player. As others have hinted at above his introduction to AFL with our team of 4-5 years ago can not have been easy, particularly for a forward. He is a slightly different sort of player, but Spargo has certainly had a much easier introduction to AFL than JKH. My recollection of that first season was that JKH he showed real promise as a player that had a bit of X factor, good skills and poise delivering the ball. It's been variously stated by Roos that before his time younger players were both gifted games too easily and thrown in the deep end and that realistically these players should have been given more time to develop in the VFL. That all said, I'm not sure thay the MFC has been able to deliver on many of those long term development players in the VFL either, which has been very frustrating as a supporter. I've heard many on this forum write off the likes of Billy Stretch and JKH on the basis of a lacking of fundemental football attributes like leg speed and/or ball skills. At the same time many are also critical of players who lack mental strength and/or good character that drives successfully team culture. From all I have heard talked about both JKH and Stretch is that their character and training ethic are first class. Thus I think it's really important for the MFC that players such as these guys succeed and become a valued and embedded part of the team moving forward. Probably the best example of where it has come off for us would be players like Nev Jetta and ANB.

    I like it, get to see if we’re pretenders or contenders. Don’t play low sides in finals so bring it on.

    Well that was an unusual game and one that might puzzle those analysts who figure they’ve got our game worked out. Statistically, we had less disposals, less contested possessions, less clearances, less tackles and less inside 50s. These are areas where, during this season, we are usually in front of our opposition and yet today, we won by 50 points. Anyone have an explanation?

    I’m frustrated. I wanted to gouge my eyes out until Oliver started hitting chests inside 50. Is it that [censored] hard? Excellent games by Gawn, Oliver, Brayshaw and Hogan. Opposition were rubbish. I need to see us beat a good team.

    We might stop hearing about this "top teams" myth that posters keep talking about. Hawthorn, Geelong, Port, Sydney are all ordinary.

    Losing is simply not an option if we want to play finals. Luckily we’ll come out pumped up and show the Dogs what we’re made of. Dogs by 27.

    In my first ever game of under 12s, I only got one kick. It slewed off the side of my boot and through for a point to the opposition.

    Got a doggies mate who thinks they’re tanking for the no.4 pick. It would be very Melbourne to lose to a team that’s tanking 😂

    Pathetic. Want to enlighten us on your illustrious football endeavours? I am sure you never shirked a contested ball in your career. In other words this is just a cheap shot on someone you don’t know.

    Glad we broke the 'when will we win at the 'G' stat. I will admit I was nervous at half time, listening to Dwayne Russel doesn't help, but then seeing our run, I will attempt to explain the stats this way, what I saw today was a team more concerned about helping each other than trying to do it for them selves. Watching the style of play each effort really seemed to focus on helping the person receiving the ball to put them in a better position to do something. In the past we have played 'hot potato' and none of our players want to be the one that has the turnover. I thought this 'helping your mate' style of play made the most of our touches and why we scorched them in the 3rd. (That and Max in every bullies face plugging holes, laying bumps etc, the dogs must have felt like they were running up hill against Max.) I now think with our mindset we can beat Geelong, more confidant of the next game than I was about this one. Fritsch is an amazing player, looks like he is in his 5th year not 1st. @beelzebub is right about the coach, he has definetly fixed some things about the way we play, big kudos to Goodwin for evolving. I also thought Lewis was the general QB tonight that he is meant to be, yes he had an interception, but the body of work tonight led the defense very well, and I am sure OMAC never reads social media, just keeps trying, Very happy Roman dee tonight.

    We don’t need to “make the eight” (as we are already in it)! We need to win every match and finish in the top 4!

    It's also great to see Hogan hit 40 goals for the season, and he's currently second on the goal kicking table (with Buddy one goal behind with a game to play). His best haul was 44 back in 2015 and he's in with a big chance of getting at least 60 goals before the season is over. He and Tom worked superbly together today and you can see their synergy building by the week.

    Hmm so we won after going to Darwin! I have been saving for years that it is not the trip to Darwin that matters but the quality of the players. Blaming going to Darwin for our poor performances was always BS.

    I actually thought he played well? 9 tackles and 15 ddisposal. He can build on todays game.. He did a lot of unrewarding running and i hope over the next few weeks he's rewarded more. Keep it up JKH!

    Did a great kick to Hogan for a goal. 8 tackles Give him some credit

    I've had Gus in my supercoach for over 2 months. This is just what he does now. Massively underrated player. He will start getting props off the media after tonight - but he has been in great form for a while now. His kicking appeared to have improved a bit tonight which is good

    not sure you can drop a player who has the 3rd highest disposals, 6th highest AF points, 9th highest metres gained etc etc

    If Hogan doesn't get a free kick, he's out of the contest. Still plays for them too much IMO.

    EVERYONE: "Melbourne has no footspeed. ALSO EVERYONE: "Why would you play Hannan when you have slow-as-treacle Tyson in the VFL?"

    Another Goodwin move. Bring in Hannan who has done SFA all year for Viney when you have Tyson, who all year you have refused to play in his rightful spot as an inside mid. Honestly this coach and this team are infuriating.

    I got one up on you. In my 150th game of junior footy, i was playing full back on the league's leading goal kicker. Kept him scoreless initially, but didn't get a disposal myself. Anyway, 3rd quarter, kicking in from a behind (the first time I'd touched the ball all day). Kicked it straight into him, he grabbed the ball and snapped a goal. My stats for the day: 1 clanger 0 disposals

    I have a good feeling he will take some big steps forward today. The team wasnt as strong when.he played semi regular in the seniors last He will be fed the ball this time round and im very confident he will take his chance and deliver beautifully inside 50 Good luck mate

    As i said in the game day thread i have a feeling he will take his chance. Looks fit and strong.

    C'mon Dee supporters, enjoy our journey. Win or lose, we are getting a better ride than in previous years. Go to game, watch the game, none of the heeby jeeby's, jinx's or general anxiety. We are competitive, we can win when we are behind and can dominate games. I know there is an emotional gamble but is only a game. Enjoy, I don't get the hide away, not go or watch it. Individual superstitions really don't determine the outcome (stop the magic thoughts). Have some courage, I wouldn't want to be anywhere else on such a beautiful Melbourne day, at the "G", win or lose.

    hm, i'm more circumspect than you about them although in fairness last night they did have 12 players with under 50 games under their belt, and another 3 in the 51-99 mark but how many of them are much chop? the younger curnow and cripps are stars, but ed curnow is about to turn 29 - he's not part of their long term future, and nor is simpson (34), murphy (31), thomas (31), rowe (31), kreuzer (29), wright (28.5), casboult (28), or even really liam jones (27) their list is in a bad, bad way it's glorious

    I think a few people are being spooked by Pert, because PJ has been so good and a few people are hearing gossip about some problems at Collingwood, which if true you would hope he has learned from. He was there for 11 years and oversaw their transformation, along with Eddie, to a powerhouse club. Hopefully he does a great job for us. If he is no good he can be moved on.

    Have driven down from Canberra for a Tiger supporting mate's 30th, and have convinced the boys to go to the game. Hopefully it's a good start to the evening
