Id just leave Jesse in the square all day. Dont bother running up the ground. a few times last week we got the ball, looked up and there was no one in our forward line to kick it to. Just leave him there. 

That is when he plays he worst footy. He has to be on the move. His aerobic capacity is his biggest asset.

I hope so. He's one of the loosest backmen in the comp and this would leave Jack to roam free and do Watts he does best!

Perhaps, but Howe also knows where to go to get the ball and gets pleanty of it.  I'd almost be tempted to play Watts on Howe in a defensive forward role and let Howe lead Jack to the ball.  I think they'd be well matched athleticly (except for aerially) and if Watts were to play it well, it could really come off for us by taking their best defensive play maker out of the game and getting our best attacking play maker into the game.

Hogan and Pedo could provide the main targets up forward and could be less impeded by Howe if Watts can do a good job on him.  Barring Watts, I think either Melksham or Harmes are the match-ups we should be targeting for Howe.  Hassel the F#@$ out of Howe and make the slimy turd doublely regret leaving us for that filth.

Our contested marking skills were really showed up by the Lions last week. Jesse and Pedo were our shining lights in that regard, but whenever the Lions went long to a pack, they would mark it. Jeremy Howe as we all know is a great contested marker, so by leading him off with some of our other dangerous forwards he'll be neutralised and worn down. 

 

That being said, if they stick him on Pedo or Jesse, our other forwards and midfielders are so dangerous in front of goals we have plenty of other avenues for goal to go to, whereas the Pies only have a few dangerous forwards, which Tom and Jetta could easily handle. With Salem and Melksham firing off accurate darts into our forward 50 we're well placed to give the Scumwood a good thrashing 5 times in a row. 

Funny how Lynden Dunn has joined a 'more' successful team? :rolleyes:

That's the form 22 for this year excluding Viney.

Plenty of incentive for the team to play finals and plenty of pressure on individual players to perform. Casey will play finals next week but AFAIK none of this 22 can play - the criteria are "not play for MFC in R23" OR play 6+ games for Casey.  That means their selection rivals will have two matches to make their case if there are any form or commitment stumbles this week.  And hopefully Viney automatic in.

Did Dunn make a statement that warrents this statement/insult.  As far as I'm concerned I hold little or no resentment towards Dunn because he essentialy left for the opportunity to play footy at the senior AFL level that he wasn't getting and wasn't likely to get with us in the future.  He was a loyal and dedicated servant of the MFC for many years before moving.

Jeremy Howe on the other hand is the one who left for either or both more money, perceived better success and the opportunity to play as a perminant forward (Haha to that too).  Ultimately we received next to no value for Jeremy leaving compared to the value he has provided the scum.  The better he plays for them, the more I beguin to despise him.  Melbourne supporters should BOOOOOOOO this Jezza bloke on Saturday afternoon.  He's not quite a Scully, but he went to that filthy Collingwood scum and that makes him nearly as bad.

Balls, you're spot on with respect to Dunn - the comment was made by Taylor Adams just before QB game, not by Lynden. I share your views on his leaving the club, and always look forward to watching him unload a torp from full back.

Also agree with your views on Howey - he left for a life kicking goals in a successful club and finds himself where he was with us four years ago. Stuck in the backline of a not-good-enough club. He can suck a bag of dicks.

Dunn goes to the pies (under sufferance) full of hope and happiness at the prospect of joining a successful club.

Howe goes to the Pies because he hates playing in the backline and proceeds to be reinvented by the genius Buckley as a defender.

My kids talk about opposite day. This must have been opposite year.

Ben Reid has withdrawn from tomorrow's match...  Our forwards will dominate tomorrow 

EDIT: He is actually named forward which surprises me, but it makes their forward line look extremely bare other than Jamie Elliott

Ben Reid is a huge loss for the an already under strength filth team.

If we cant beat this weak, under strength  filth team missing at least 8 of their best 22 with a full strength team minus Viney, , we don't deserve to play finals.

Kirby in for Reid. Leads the VFL goal kicking, has a lot of hype around him in terms of x-factor. Small forward, was very overweight at the start of the year. Should be easily shut down by our nimble backline.

This kids a freak from the few games I saw of him as a kid. He's one of the best junior talents I've seen and have no doubt he will cause some damage against us this week.

Whoever plays on him but will do some damage the other way as I don't recall him liking defensive running that much.

Im backing him to kick 2 or 3 but his man (say Hunt) should be able to setup a couple the other way.

Wasn't it Adams who said Dunn was happy to be at a successful club. I don't think Dunn said it as such. Let Dunn do his thing. That'll involve a couple of long bombs, some spoiling and a couple of short passes to Melbourne players who will then have shots on goal.

I'm concerned that he's a fiery little fecker and might stir up a few of our guys and they'll do something stupid.

Watching him play for filth reserves against Casey earlier this year this Kirby guy lost the plot and was giving away silly free kicks. I believe it was Munro that stuck to him like a glove all day and pestered him throughout. 

I'm with you on us doing something stupid but one of our boys should get into him early and mess with his head cause the last thing we need is a first gamer to rip us apart.
