    Changes v St Kilda

    In: Frost, Stretch, Spargo Out: Vince, Tyson, T Smith Frost deserves a chance for the next month in a Melbourne side that will have the ball live in its forward half. He's always the scape goat when when the rest of the side fails miserably (I.e. Hawthorn). Give him a go when we have double the inside 50s to our opposition. We've seen how much better Oscar has looked when our midfield out-pressure the opposition. Frost should be under instruction to play within his limitations and handpass to a Salem, Lewis or Hibberd every time he touches the ball. I'd have him do the back up ruck work and tackle to hurt at centre bounces like he loves doing. He's too big, strong and fast to be wallowing at Casey while we have an undersized and slow backline at one end, and Tim Smith offering absolutely nothing at the other.

    Run home to Finals - 2018

    The blind, long, high bombs into the Forward line have been an issue since Round 1 where it, and the selection of Maynard and Wagner, cost us another match we should have won. It is not easily fixed because it is not the forwards at fault, it's our crash and bash one dimensional, unbalanced midfield that have no class or ability to accelerate out of a stoppage, lower their eyes and spot up a well-weighted short pass. We desperately need to add a Shaun Higgins-type free agent and trade for a Devon Smith-type as well. Hopefully Gaff and Murphy might be the Free Agents this year, and maybe they can trade for a Darcy Parish or similar.

    Why success is improvement

    Such a Melbourne thread. "Too much pressure on finals". Wow.

    Marc Murphy at the Dees.

    Thank Christ. Someone that can run and kick.

    Post Match Discussion - Round 14

    I'm one of those supporters that expects $800k money men with fancy free haircuts to deliver in big games against good opposition.

    Post Match Discussion - Round 14

    All I remember of him in the Richmond game was the around-the-body snap he went for late in the 3rd quarter from 35m directly in front, which should have been a set shop drop punt, that missed and sapped all our momentum. Again it's a goal that I expect my $800k a year forwards to kick. I don't accept this stuff because it's mediocrity. Big dollars, big matches, big moments, little return.

    Post Match Discussion - Round 14

    We lost it due to a lack of skill going inside 50 and non-existent crumbing options once it was in there. 10 inside midfielders was too many.

    Great touch against who? How's he played against Geelong, Richmond, Hawthorn, Collingwood and Port? Up to this point he's just a flat track bully who beats up on the bottom 6 sides.

    Post Match Discussion - Round 14

    The Hogan missed snap with 5 minutes to go in the 3rd quarter was critical. The bloke is on $800k a year and was under no pressure 20m directly in front of goal. An absolute pretender, just like Petracca. I don't even accept the inside 50 differential because ours shouldn't be counted as inside 50s. They are junk hacks forward by a midfield bunch always under pressure thanks to a lack of pace and class. It is easily the most unbalanced midfield in the afl. Goodwin got what he deserved for loading up with guys like Tyson and Harmes at the expense of Spargo, Garlett and even JKH.

    Was just ok against Carlton and Adelaide when you and I would have kicked a bag, and only got in the way of Hogan and TMac against the Bulldogs. Was very poor against the Dogs, doesn't play at Casey and then comes straight back in? Need key position defensive depth and speed out of the backline (Frost) rather than a 3rd tall forward spoiling Hogan and TMac. It really is like heavy rain is predicted and Goodwin wants to pick the toughest, slowest side he can pick.

    Losing 1 game at selection as they did in Round 1 is one too many.

    It's funny how people say "I have faith in the match committee" when it's as clear as day they got it wrong in round 1 playing Maynard and Wagner who are nowhere near it. I don't understand why you'd have faith in the match committee. Neither Pedersen or T Smith are up to it. They only get in the way of Hogan and TMac up forward, are ordinary rucks, and give nothing at ground level once it's bounced. Why wouldn't you bring Frost in to provide the run you don't get from Lewis, Vince, and Jetta, the extra key position depth if Oscar and J Smith fail again, and a back up ruck that is quicker than all our one paced mids who watched Collingwood moonwalk the ball out of the middle? I can't even be bothered talking about Tyson, who now takes us to 10 inside midfielders of the starting 22 and does nothing for the balance of the side. Very underwhelming ins.

    Marc Murphy at the Dees.

    Subject to medical and the right money I think Murphy would be a fantastic fit for us. We are brimming with big bodied inside midfielders and desperately lack outside class. We don't have a first round pick so it's not like we can add an Oliver Florent mid or Ed Richards half back flanker. Even if Murphy was managed through 15 games a season I'd prefer him on the list to half a dozen of the spuds we have running around at Casey or perpetually clogging the injury list. People who laugh at Murphy ought to name some alternative pace that we can get for nothing. David Mackay? Gaff is run all day on the outside fast. He's not burst away from a stoppage fast.

    Changes v Port

    Cannot fathom how Tyson, the slowest inside mid of all our inside mids, would possibly help counter the spread and acceleration of better-balanced opposition midfields. I'd bring JKH in before I brought Tyson in. He's not up to it either, but at least he's different.

    Midfielders and half back flankers with speed and kicking skills are the much bigger need.
