  1. Jake Lever is an excellent intercept mark and spoiler. With Tom McDonald moving forward, we have been found wanting and Lever will stop 3-4 goals per game. Defensive rotations has left shorter players like Hunt, Jetta and Lewis trying to beat their taller opponents in one on one contests. Having Lever's skill to read the play and intercept is going to make those contests harder for the opposition. Once he has the ball, then the running power of Hunt, Hibberd and rotating midfield combined with the better delivery skills of Salem, Hibberd, Jetta and an improving Oscar McDonald will make the transition from backline to forward entries. This is a very good acquisition for Melbourne. To get an intercept defensive player of his quality from the draft is a lottery, so points equivalent of pick 4 is the right price. How much is stopping 3-4 goals worth?

    Age is on his side. Expect a big growth spurt too.

    That doesn't look like Max Gawn. :-(
  4. Based on the quality available, Melbourne are more likely to get value by keeping as many 2018 picks.

    they don't release the last rounds to keep the result in suspense

    Based on prior games, Collingwood need to score over 100 points for them to win. This is something they have done a few times this year, but Melbourne's defence has been pretty solid all year. As long as the midfield holds sway...
  7. Road to the finals (the last 12 games)

    Melbourne has the 4th best scores for and midtable (9th) on scores against. Based on Simon Goodwin's statement prior to last game that we have won the 4th most quarters, these data tend to be a positive indicator to finishing the season well. Obviously losing the close ones, and starting poorly are the aspects which will have to improve to get these positive aspects to more wins.
  8. GAME DAY - Round 3, 2017

    This is such a frustrating game. We are winning everything except for kicking at goals. Even umpires have evened out since half time.
  9. Josh Wagner Injury

    that has a nice Ring to it.

    The demonic peace? Or is that referencing the books about a demon hunting soccer mom (sic)?

    Melbourne are working towards getting their DNA right 🙂
  12. Melbourne raffle

    No I haven't as yet. Though it is interesting that both groups had my number and knew of my prior purchase. And I also thought the past players raffle was not of interest.
  13. Melbourne raffle

    I have now received two different calls from past players association Melbourne Football Club regarding their respective raffles. Being a regular purchaser of MFC raffle I was under the view that the raffle had changed until I got the call from MFC. However now I suggest caution until there is validation of each's credentials.
  14. Replays on the net

    I've been going through the games, which bring back memories. Also they show how I've forgotten players, as well as appreciate players that I didn't rate as highly way back then. Beveridge, Dyson, Clark for example.
  15. The MFC Apparel Thread

    it's the same design that Liverpool have this season.
