    Pert's Plan to Make the Dees an AFL Power

    I’m an MCC member and 20 consecutive MFC member. But really the MCC/MFC membership is really an $87 donation as I get no real benefit other than supporting the club financially. Would it make a difference if the MCC/MFC membership was reduced to $50, as a donation as such. I don’t need yet another scarf or membership card that doesn’t gain me entry to games. They could save on this, print of bumper stickers, and postage.

    "Melbourne Bust Out of AFL Ambiguity" The Guardian.

    The article is incorrect when it says we kicked 5 goals from 12 scoring shots in the first quarter. We kicked 5.3.

    Not his best game yesterday but is sitting 5th in Demonland’s running votes.

    Training - Wednesday 6th June, 2018

    Nice work KM. Did Tim Smith train? Cheers
  6. We’ve all read how the team has ranked in league stats over the past 5 weeks. The numbers look great but got me thinking.. how have we actually turned it around? Since we lost to Richmond a few things have changed. 1. Personel. There are 7 different players in the team from Sunday that that didn’t play in our last loss. Viney, McDonald, Smith, Fritsch, Spargo, and Hannan. That’s a significant chunk of the team! 2. Game plan. In the first 5 weeks, our press was far too high. This was evident by watching our defensive structure from level two. Even on the TV you could see how many times we got opened up out the back, and how many one on one contests the opposition had in their forward 50. The coaches addressed this and implemented a better structure behind the ball from round 6. 3. Confidence. The immeasurable stat! You can see players are intent on moving the ball forward and taking the game on knowing they will be supported by their teammates. Enjoy the ride and go Dees!

    A good word for our co-captain

    Much attributed to him playing on the ball where he belongs. 2017 he was tried on the wing and half back.

    Go and get Gaff!

    Tom Browne from On The Couch reported on the show tonight that Melbourne are the front runners for Gaff should he head East.

    Angus Brayshaw

    You may have been right on the day BD. I watched him closely yesterday. A game high 11 tackles, and hit targets off both feet. I think he has his confidence back.

    Stats-file 2018

    Since the JLT this year I reckon we’ve tried to move the ball forward from stoppages where we can. Last year we seemed to try to handball to the back of the stoppage which slowed our play down and often resulted in another handball sideways or backwards.
