    Martin Flanagan's Ode to the MFC

    Just wonderful! Flanagan has been my favourite sports journalist since many years ago he wrote a superb piece in The Age about Robert Flower. There is no one else in sports journalism who uses language as beautifully as he does. And his brother Richard’s rather good as well😀.

    MFC - the original owner of the MCG

    The ground is crown land and the MCC are responsible for its maintenance with the state government looking over the MCC’s shoulder.

    1964 memories- calling our older supporters

    I attended a school in Brighton in the 50’s early 60’s, our football team wore a jumper exactly the same as Melbourne’s (same colours but different design these days). I can remember a few Melbourne players coming down to our ground to train on a couple of occasions, Mithen, Case not sure who else. Of course Melbourne was the absolute power house of the VFL in those days and the really really daggy team was Hawthorn. And just as an aside, one name that doesn’t crop up too often in discussions about the good old days is Brian “Doc” Roet, great sold half back who I believe went and practiced medicine in the UK. Otherwise if you’re looking for John Lord or Bryan Kenneally you’ll find them both working as volunteer tour guides for the MCC.

    My Melbourne highlights from Semi Final

    A couple of minutes into the first quarter. They kicked a point and Frost kicked the ball almost to the centre circle and after a couple of handballs the ball landed in Hannan’s hands who kicked it to Tom Mc D. Goal! End to end in 20 seconds - Magic!

    My Melbourne highlights from Semi Final

    That Frost torp set the tone for the night. And the crowd WOW. Don’t tell me we are a small club, there are too many supporters tucked away in greater metropolitan Melbourne just waiting for the revival to start - and it has, in the jargon of the marketing suits “the Melbourne Football Club has become very sexy”, Max, Viney, Brayshaw, Tom McD are among the most sellable players in the AFL, and games like last Friday nights did us no harm at all.

    MCC Membership

    If you go into the MCC membership office on the ground floor MCC entrance on a non match day they may well be able to help you find a couple of full members to sign your form. Then you just wait.......and wait...and wait, but it’s worth it!
  8. For anyone with a Telstra account, get the AFL live app and watch full replays the next day. Not the best resolution but better than nothing. However the best option is to purchase a personal video recorder (PVR) and record from free to air when ever Melbourne is on ch7 ( quite often this year and probably more next)! PVR’s can be had for less than $300 and are a good investment for footy fans. Many also have archive capability so games can be transferred to USB stick or DVD.

    Gawny on Game Day (2/9)

    Point 1) on topic: Max could do stand up, no worries. Point 2) off topic: try making your own pizza, easy, cheap and twice as good as thin crust commercial crap.

    Sunday's crowd vs GWS

    Apparently the GWS supporter caught the bus down from Sydney last Friday and was seen outside Myer Melbourne on Saturday calling for charitable supporters to accompany him to the match the next day. A few pitied him and turned up😁.

    Sunday's crowd vs GWS

    The official estimate by the MCC was 37,000, with around19 to 20,000 estimated in the MCC reserve.

    Slamming Sam Frost

    As exciting as Hunt but a damned sight more powerful. A great game yesterday, thrilling to watch.

    Which Dee has X-Factor?

    Agree, Harmes has something about him that makes him very dangerous. The surprise packet of 2018. He’s an opportunist who is just beginning to realise how dangerous he could be.

    And all the better to do it against them in the West. Great job boys yippee, yippee etc etc (I’m off to have a large beet)!
