    Training - Wednesday, 5th December 2018

    Before the first final Fritsch and Harmes entertained themselves, from out near the previous practice wicket area, where they had shots for goals from a huge distance out. Whilst Harmes landed a couple from more than 50m, Fritsch was a revelation. He kicked several torps from close to 70m! And none of his torps misfired as they commonly do. Contrary to some expectations I envisage us playing 2 ruckmen next year with Fritsch at FF; I think he could be a sensation.
  4. I agree with you, but the early hints are that they won't play two ruckmen. i think Fritsch will play forward. I rate him highly but overall I regret the loss of Hogan

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    I'm not certain he actually requested a trade.His management said that he was happy with either outcome

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    He is not "still quite a player" he is a hell of a lot better than that! And May is no worlbeater. His game against Dees recently was awful and he is a hothead club should leap in and offer Jesse a new minimum three year contract. I am delighted by this development

    Farewell Dom Tyson

    His problem is that he is an inside midfielder, pure and simple. He's not a wingman. with Clarry, Viney, Brayshaw, Harmes, Jones in the team, Tyson hardly got into the middle. I like him a lot but can understand that he might want a move to a team who need a mid.

    Post Match Discussion - Preliminary Final

    Well , as you were at the game you may be able to explain something. Why did our blokes repeatedly fall over especially early in the game. The falls at critical times cost us several goals. Yet the WC guys barely fell at all. We must have had the wrong stops or whatever they use. It looked as though the ground had been sprinkled an hour before the match, but I doubt this! Is it just a layer of new grass?. A hard 15 minutes workout on the surface a couple of hours prematch surely would have alerted everyone to the problem.

    Post Match Discussion - Preliminary Final

    I guess Richmond supporters will reach a similar conclusion? Miles behind at half time, lose by more than 6 goals. Team must be rubbish, time to rebuild!!! What BS!!! we made a series of errors in the first ten minutes , gave them an opportunity and they grabbed it with a huge supportive crowd behind them. If we played WC next week at the G I would back us.. Add Hogan Lever ( and Fritsch) , there is not much wrong with our team.

    Jetta and LeCras

    Only one problem with this! LeCras was on Fricht, not Jetta

    Is Goodwin the right guy....

    Of course he was. But if there is variety in the approach, if you hit up short targets when available, but kick long to the top of the square when it's the best option, what is wrong with that? Finding it v hard to accept the criticism having regard to our percentage. Remember what store Roos placed on percentage when he came to MFC

    Melbourne and Matthews

    Don't know about that, but in a practice match at the G in the early 1980s he punched Laurie Fowler in the head when the ball was at the other end of the ground. Fowler concussed, carried off, Matthews jogged away and joined in play . Melbourne supporters who saw it were screaming but no cameras , no action taken. Fowler was no angel but his aggression usually was in the heat of the play. This was unprovoked, as far from the play as it's possible to be well done Ross McMullin
