  1. Now he is home & surrounded by his support group, real chance he may really start to grow. Love it. Hope! It sells!!!!
  2. Nothing new but getting there! Balic poised to become a Dee Midfielder Harley Balic looks likely to head home to Victoria. Fremantle midfielder Harley Balic is expected to land at Melbourne before Thursday's trade deadline. Balic wants to come home, having battled personal issues across his two years at the Dockers. "We're hoping to get a deal done with Melbourne in the next 12-24 hours," his manager Matt Bain told NAB AFL Trade Radio. "I think they're waiting to see what happened with Jack Watts and what picks they have available for Freo." Balic, 20, has played four AFL games but missed most of this season when he returned to his family in Victoria to deal with reported homesickness and anxiety issues. He struggled in his first year in the AFL system because of wrist surgery to repair an injury he sustained as a junior that had failed to heal properly. Bain expects the deal to just involve draft picks.
  3. MATCH PREVIEW AND TEAM SELECTION - Round 19

    When we played North last time we still had not synced our new game plan/style. So I feel we are superior now. I also feel the reason why North rested players last week and brought some back this week is because they know their future is as the Tassie Kangaroos and they need to play their best for their Tassie Brand. Port & North I previously believed had the big bodied players to potentially monster our young team. After we took care of Port last week we only have to emulate last weeks performance to gets the chocolates tomorrow. Go Dees!
  4. MATCH PREVIEW AND TEAM SELECTION - Round 18

    Fair Dinkum? So sick of the tripe some of our very own have been dishing out recently. We are finally the mongrel team and the serial complainers who hate their own Lives can't wait to post their habitual drivel on social media. Very clever in bringing in the big guns and commence our challenge up the Col De Finals. We have kept in touch with the peloton despite some falls in the early stages. Time to Do some serious damage to the rest of the pretenders!
  5. Tommy Bugg on report

    Let he who has committed no sins cast the first stone. So many perfect people on this site! You are a supporter or a criticiser. The latter is more a reflection of the comment within oneself.
  6. AFL 360 tonight

    I choose to believe that we will be there in September. I dont dwell in the past or let fear rule my present. Our KPI's are first class. Despite injuries and until last weekend both the seniors & seconds, after taking the first 6 or so weeks to get the new Goodwin game plan together were smashing it. We WILL come home with a bang and at the right time. So far this season luck has not been with us AND we are still in there. Hopefully the winds will change as we get all our key personal on the park at the right time. Go Dees!

    Moment before OMac gets the ball. A tackle would have been too late. The guy is a gun and we're worried about tackles????
  9. Demons - Finals bound

    Wow I wonder whether the 'MFC' mental issues are about the self survival of supporters. We are playing a serious brand of football. Our KPI's are amongst the best without our 1st choice ruckman & backup. Without our full fwd & backup. Aside from GWS who else is hanging in there with injuries to first choice players? We are not been blown away like in past years. Frost, Hibberd, Hannah, Oliver amongst others having breakout years. Our percentage is the 5th best in the comp! If your going to bed in appreciation/gratitude mode your enjoying our ride. Otherwise it's fear based journey which leads to ........ Looking forward to with excitement of what the future holds. Go Dees!!
  10. WELCOME TO THE MELBOURNE FOOTBALL CLUB - MICHAEL HIBBERD

    I'd rather be in appreciation mode. One of the best backmen we have had for 20 years!
  11. Changes v Collingwood

    Not sure if many noticed but I can't recall 4 Melbourne defenders contesting a pack mark (like we have all year). The coaches may have addressed this with Hibberd waiting back Waiting to see who is available before I comment
  12. POST MATCH DISCUSSION - Round 10

    Multiple goal scorers. Ability to kick a bag of goals in a quarter. Coaching team making several positional changes during the game to get a mix that will work. In the top 1-4 for the most important KPI's. Quick fix = house of straw. We are building a house of stone. We started the year at lock up stage. Some of our best tradies decided to awol, some were legitimacy sick and others took unwanted long term holidays. When they are all on deck in the next 2-3 weeks the mansion will be complete and we can enjoy the house warming party!
  13. Team Statistics YTD

    Thanks Josh. Thats why we have been in a winnable position in the final quarter every game this year. Forward entry conversion & lack of talls certainly has been some of the reasons. (Bring in any of Gawn, Hogan etc) Makes for an interesting second half of the year!
  14. POST MATCH DISCUSSION - Round 10

    I am with you. Thanks Danelska.
  15. WELCOME TO THE MELBOURNE FOOTBALL CLUB - MITCHELL HANNAN

    Plays tall, sure/quick hands, works hard to get to position, can rotate thru the mid-field, hard to match up and how many times has he been there in the goal square!
