50 Greatest MFC Goals video

Recommended Posts

Video is finished and uploaded.

I haven't ranked them in order as that is a just about impossible task.

So many great goals missed out, but thanks again for your help and suggestions.

Enjoy.

Great compilation - a mix of clutch moments in games (how calm was Jeff White?) and just miracle goals.

Funny how to passage of time becomes blurry after a while.  I had to double take when I saw Dean Kent on screen in one of the Flash goals.  Hard to believe Flash has only been off the list for four years, that feels like a bloody lifetime ago.

Fantastic work Ash. The vid brings back so many memories. The late, great Robbie Flower is poetry in motion.

Fanatastic stuff Ash. Some great memories there. You are an honorary dee i'm afraid. Have you made a similar EFC compilation? 

If i may offer one possible improvement, it would be great to have text with the the year and round for each goal.

I have plenty of EFC type videos. I want to do quite a few different clubs, but thought I'd start with the Demons Goals video.

I thought about doing text with Player, year, Round and opponent for each goal, but I'm a bit lazy. lol

50 isn't enough, there were a stack of great goals that didn't make it. There was at least another 10 that I had to chop.

It did turn into a mixture of clutch (Froggy 1964 GF, White vs WB, Leoncelli vs Adel 2001) and just sheer brilliance.

I could have focused on significant and clutch a bit more, include more of the significant finals goals for example, or Rd 22 1987, but I wanted to include a lot of the skilful freakish goals over the years.

A tough task narrowing it down to 50, but I enjoyed it and I hope you all enjoy the memories.

That was awesome, great job. 

 

Statistics tell me from watching that, we kick great goals when we're losing.

How quickly I have forgotten the brilliance and skill of Aaron Davey, Travis Johnstone, and Adem Yze. 

The footage of Robbie still gets me teary - still the best Dees player I have ever seen. There is something divine or ephemeral about him that makes all other players look like orange cones. 

The physical impact of Barrassi, Neitz and Shwartz. 

Ash, you have made my night - thanks for all your work.

Flash was something else prior to that hammy at Etihad. I`d say all those goals were pretty early in his career, what a star he was.

Great work Ash, I`ll be watching that over and over!

Well, there could be worse things to watch on a bye weekend for the Dees.

Ash, top effort mate. Made the lack of footy over the bye just that bit more pleasurable.

one request - can we get Trac's goal in fro QB last year where he spins away  from (I think it was) Sinclair? I can see myself watching this several times!

Great work, Ash

Wow....I always remember Jako and Jurrah as wasted (or unfulfilled) talent but I had forgotten just how good Sean Charles could have been had he stayed on track. Co-incidentally wasn't it dome form of wrist fracture that contributed to the demise of both Jurrah and Charles, taking them away from the stability of the club onto errant ways.

An absolute ripping video which will keep Melbourne in the public eye through the years to come. I always felt that part of our demise in the 60's was because there was no video record of our greatness, whilst teams like richmond collwd carlton essendon and hawthorn got endlessly played and replayed on television through the decades. as a result we lost many potential supporters andd those teams gained supporter armies whose kids went onto follow the same teams.

Nice one.

I remember that Charles goal against WC like it was yesterday. '93 I think it was? They were flag favourites and we were struggling but we smashed them that day. Beat the Bombers as well that year...but lost to Sydney lol Typical Melbourne!

Melbourne have seemed to have had some mercurial forwards in my lifetime, more than most teams.

Imagine a forward line of Jakovich, Farmer, Aaron Davey, Sean Charles & Jurrah.

You'd pay 4 times the admission price to watch it every week.

The Charles goal was in 1994.

You did beat WCE in 1993 though, the game where Allen Jakovich kissed his brother Glen after slotting the sealer.

And yep, beat us in 1993, but handed Sydney their first win for the year.

Is that the actual goal where Jako kisses Glenn in the above Video?

Nope.

You'd be amazed how quickly 50 goals is used up.

As I said, a lot missed the cut that I would have loved to included.

There were at least another 5 from Farmer that could have made it (including 1996 vs Fitzroy, 2000 vs Geelong at KP), a couple from Yze and Jakovich, Schwarz in the 1994 QF vs Carlton, Lynden Dunn mid air soccer goal vs North in 2010, Kevin Dyson goal from the boundary 55m out vs Geelong in 1993, Andrew Lamprill match winning snap against the Cats in Rd 2 1992, plus any number of significant goals from finals and Rd 22 1987.

Garry Lyon kicked a left foot banana in the same game in 1994 vs WCE that the Sean Charles goal is from, the same spot that Wayne Carey kicked his amazing goal against Essendon in 1999. Everyone goes on about Careys goal but Lyons doesn't ever get mentioned.

This could have been a top 70 goals and some would have still missed out.

As an editor myself I say just keep adding to it. Put as many highlights on Youtube as you can

otherwise they will never be seen

i have about 6 hours on VHS from the Northey Era, but i need a DVD Drive to transfer it all online...

Great video. It makes you sit back and wonder about goals over the years. I always remember the few games that Rod Owen played for us. He used to kick some rippers.
