Hawks on Sunday - Predictions

Recommended Posts

was going to add to the changes thread but doesn't really fit

I'm so intruiged  by the Hawks game coming up on sunday. The pessimist (MFC supporter part) in me says we wont win. the Hawks have certainly improved. Beat Geelong and lost to Tigers by a goal. But then sometimes I think about Trac and Clarry and Jesse and I think we should easily beat them if we have the belief.  

One of the MANY defining games of our season and I can't wait.

So what are your thoughts, predictions?

I think we will hammer them by 1 point  ;-)

Hogan will elevate himself to elite status and destroy chip and Lever will finally look like belongs and intercept all day

Got a feeling we will [censored] the pants off them.

Our midfield is way too deep and talented and just starting to come together..  Hogan has added a whole new dimension and Salem is hitting form. 

Deez by 63

Melbourne 11 goals 4 to Hawks 6 goals 18

Not meaning to be facetious but many of our good wins last year occurred because the other side did not kick straight.

Luck, pressure call it what you like but I hope it happens again.

I think and hope we win fairly easily. Our form is not that bad even though some posters believe we are not playing well. Plenty of inside 50's in all 3 games. Just need to be a bit cleaner going forward and we will absolutely thrash a team. Should have, could have beaten Cats. Brisbane in Brisbane on a hot, humid night was a good win. Look at Lions. They nearly beat Port in Adelaide so there form is not bad then gave North a start and won by 6 goals. We continue winning the ball in contests and lower eyes going forward a win is on cards this Sunday.

Dees $1.70 hawks $2.16 was strange seeing that I just assumed hawks would be favorites

I’m predicting a close tight game, Demons 10 goals up by half time, then we are going to slow down hit the wall and have a final margin of 103 points win to us. 

Logically, I’m going to complain about the weather, the umpires, our guernrsey, the AFL and the starting time of game - if this 103 point margin is not obtained.   

Ahhh Go Dees

50/50 game in my opinion. Max should hit the ball away from Mitchell at stoppages.

Roughead to score the first goal via a free kick (that wasn’t there).

I predict that Clarko will try to man up and isolate Lewis and play through his opponent.

I reckon we will win this. Hawthorn's ball use inside 50 for large parts of the Richmond game was far worse than our ball use. They constantly kicked to the advantage of the Richmond talls.

If you cut off Mitchell or at least limit the damage of his disposals, then it means Hawthorn will have to operate on the counter from half back. They certainly have the leg speed (Smith and their pacey smalls), but I'm not as convinced by their foot skills anymore.

If we convert our chances inside 50 (ugh, Bugg and Kent), lay enough tackles across half forward to keep it in there and up the tempo in the midfield, I can't see Hawthorn being able to cope.

But Hawthorn are coached by one of the greats, so even though our best is far too good for them, if Clarkson's men can use the slingshot against us and they take every chance inside 50 (think Daniher against us in 2016), they could beat us.

My feeling though is this one's in our court.

Last week i saw Jones getting the ball in his range and looking for an option to short pass to. This was more ANB type forward work but very happy to see the captain not bomb it and look for another option.

I think the lead will change more than once and the Hawks are just so well coached, disciplined with defensive setups and kick unfalteringly to position that their less talented team will mean it will be heart in mouth for the last 10 minutes.

I think theyll do us by about 3 goals.

We will bomb it in long and they will counter with way too much efficiency

I'm feeling pretty good about this game. It's amazing what a win can do. I think our confidence is up, the players are very fit and hungry for the contest. We still need to fix up a few issues, and we can't allow the Hawks to kick away early as they'll put us away better than North could, but I think we are more than evenly matched. 

Dees by 4 goals.

Staying nearby so went and watched the 1st half of Richmond Hawthorn, think we have Hawks covered, they'll need either Roughead or Rioli to have big games to beat us. Tiges however ???

I think the Hawks will do well with the umpires in front of goal, and that the Dees will have to recover the game from the middle of the second quarter, as what happened against North. In a clever move, Hibberd and Frosty will come out of the backline hard, passing effectively to our mids and fwds who will kick multiple goals within range, and crumbing smalls will buzz the Hawks defenders in their three-setup to kick the rest. Kent will play a pivotal role in this with 3 running goals from 45-50 metres. Fritzy will lead up well, receiving several low passes and will have some time to leap for a few, as well. Of course, he will convert accurately. Lever will trouble the Hawk talls, coming across from the side to intercept and handball/pass forward. Jones and Gawn, BOG with Clarrie taking 35 possessions and kicking 4 goals. ANB back to form and effective. Melksham will get those 4 goals missed across the last two weeks. Bugg will flatten Mitchell. Tracca will tear the Hawks' half-backs to pieces and kick quite a few longish goals. Pedo will come into the side as the ruck backup, kicking 3 from CHF.  Goodwin will turn OMac into a fwd, slotting Frosty at FBack in the 2nd half. Hogan will ruck and rove from midfield and fwd line, and will kick 5.

Dees by 40 points at 3qtr time, 60 pts at stumps.

Round 1: Second quarter

Round 2: Fourth quarter

Round 3: First quarter

 

I therefore predict that Hawthorn will kick five unanswered goals in the third quarter!

Easy way to counter that is to move Jordan to the forward line.

I think we win by around 20 points.
