AFLW: The Run Home

Recommended Posts

Not liking our chances of a GF berth:

Our poor % means we are effectively two games behind the leaders who have a relatively easy run home.  

I don't see the Bulldogs being toppled with their huge %'age.    A big, big win vs Lions this Friday could get us back in the running.  But then the Bulldogs await - who will do anything to keep us out of the GF.

So to end up top 2 we need to win all three games and either the Bulldogs or Lions to drop two (or we beat them by huge margins).   Or rely on either GWS or Pies to beat either or both teams.   While not impossible I just don't see that happening. 

Sadly, I think our season is over and it is very annoying that we gave it up by big losses to two average teams:  Freo and Pies.

It's not over til it's over ... but I think it might be over.

I guess it's a good thing we have so much experience with this situation as Dees fans?

We need to win our remaining games and we need GWS or the Pies to find some form. The Pies did beat us.

Given the current system of no finals we have to be in control of our own destiny and we have blown that chance. Losing to and relying on bottom teams to win is not a good outcome.

Lions are extremely well coached 

Think they will take some beating from here on

We have talent but not the team work required

Gee @Old Bear

Watching AFLW AND having Gough as your AV will have the resident Tories on here calling in the special branch!

Creeping Bolshevism cannot be tolerated! ;)

The end of the season is shaping up to a percentage battle between us and Brisbane. ....and that's assuming we win all remaining games or by some miracle Brisbane lose to Collingwood or GWS.

Carlton is our biggest hope of bridging the gap and we have to do it in a big way, as we are 10% behind them. 

Fingers crossed, but like the mens side in 2017 we have let slip the opportunity to determine our own fate.

I reckon GWS could push the Lions. Might be wishful thinking though.

So if Brisbane lose one and Melbourne win the next two we will make the GF.

Brisbane are currently down two goals to Collingwood at 1/4 time

This feels dirty to type but ... Go the Pies!

That is it fndee.

If lions lose today it is wide open for us.  We must have a big win tomorrow vs Blues to build a % buffer but even that won't be enough if we lose to bulldogs next week and Crows beat Pies.

Nail biting games await!

Go Pies this week and next week vs Crows!

Dozen stubbies should fix the dirt but I do agree though.

Huge result for us, lions down by 33 points, five mins to go, will bring their % back to just over 100, though for us, we just have to win, beat the blues and then the dogs twice and that will be the second leg of our trifecta!

Can never trust those damn Pies - let lions get 3 junk time goals and protect their %age.  Grrrrr!!

So, it is up to the team now - win next 2 games and we are in the GF.

How fitting will that be: a Bulldogs vs Demons GF - the two original teams playing off.

Bit close to call - a giants win will bring the dogs back to the field but give the giants a leg up and compete with us for second spot.

But I would still go for the giants tonight (by a very narrow margin like 1 or 2 points) as they have the lions next week.

We win tomorrow and the field is wide open.  Knock off the bulldogs next week and we shut the gate on everyone else!!!

Don’t care about other results, win and other results don’t really matter 

Do I hear an echo of the lead up to the 2017 AFL round 23 game...:rolleyes: 

We are Melbourne, anything can happen...

Mark my words, this will end in heartbreak. But I'm so glad we're still in the hunt for it!
