Changes v The Blues

Recommended Posts

I said it early in the week that this is the best side we have had since '98.

We are currently 5th and I truly believe we can go all the way with this side.

Hannan saved himself in the last quarter I thought he done nothing for 3 quarters.

IN: VINEY OUT: WEIDEMAN

In -      Viney

Out -   Vince (rest)

I like the Weid in the team. hes taking a key defender and allowing T Mac and Hogan to wreak havoc.

Can't see them switching a tall for a mid, Weid has allowed TMac and Hogan to roam while keeping some structure in the forward line. I think it's really helped with some of the mismatches that occurred in the last. 

I'm in the Vince out for a rest, Viney in camp.

A good response from Harmes - he knew.

ANB similar but Viney is a clear upgrade for mine.

In: Viney

Out: Neal- Bullen

I think the Weide isn't needed T.Mac can play second ruck and Gawn can play more forward.

I am also in the Tyson for Viney, but resting Vince could be an option.

I think it’s there only option.  

Goodwin talked up the Weed after the game and Viney won’t play ANB’s half forward role. 

Tyson is an inside mid who has not been overly effective and still makes lots of mistakes

There's another option - give Viney another week. Why not? I'd rather err on the super cautious side.

I’d rather he come back to condition himself against Carlton at the G than against Adelaide in Alice Springs.

I think Goody said at the end of his presser that Viney would play next week.

Tyson hasn't been playing as an inside mid though, he played more as a defensive sweeper/mid today and I thought he was in our best half dozen in the first half, was much quieter in the second half but the ball barely went down there.

I think Vince is more of a chance to get dropped than Tyson. 

Age is catching up with him.

After watching Goody's presser I think the Weid stays but Vince is in trouble, I would like to see Tyson stay I like him as a footballer.

That is just completely bizarre. Not only has tmac just come back from an injured foot but is playing well in the forward line while sometimes wandering out to the wing area. Gawn can play forward more is nonsensical because he is the best ruckman in the side so why play him forward more with tmac rucking ??????? I just don't get your argument.

Settle down.

OK I think the Weid stays I just know that T.Mac can play well as a second ruck and Gawn can play well as a second forward. The Weid hasn't grasped the second forward role yet but he has been quite good as the second ruck.

Viney will get 50 disposals that's how much he is above VFL level. Viney will be in next week the coach said so.

Even as an armchair coach it's hard to predict who will make way for Viney.

Let's be real, you are pretty stiff to get dropped after an 11 goal win. If Viney wasn't out there wouldn't be changes next week.

Happy with the current team, but Viney has to come back in.

    OVERPOWERED by George on the Outer

    If there was ever a prime example of a team of players not ready for the new Football season it was Melbourne in the opening round of 2019.   Throughout the field there was just too much evidence of players who haven’t had sufficient pre-season or players who ordinarily wouldn’t have even graced the field at this early stage.  The Demons also got a lesson on selection with Port Adelaide showing that 2 ruckmen on the field is an essential for this season.  It was a lesson that should have be

    THE WELCOME GAME by Whispering Jack

    The Melbourne Football Club has moved forward in leaps and bounds since it last met Port Adelaide in a totally forgettable (for Demon fans) season opener on the MCG.  That game, played on Sunday, 31 March, 2013 before a crowd of 22,924, was supposed to be a close encounter between two of the competition’s lesser lights from the previous season when the Power had finished 14th and the Demons 16th (ahead only of AFL newbies Gold Coast and GWS). It turned into a slaughter with Port taking the

    THE WALKING WOUNDED by Paddy Gosch

    Forget the fact that Melbourne narrowly missed out on getting the four JLT points on offer for a second consecutive week and the blow to the ego of a supposed top four contender losing ... well almost at home ... to a team that has recently dwelt in the AFL cellar and won a mere five games in 2018. The things that emerged from the horror final JLT outing was that the Demons are a long way from being prepared to take on the rigours of a long tough season in which they have one of the hardest fixt

    PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons have named a star studded line up in it’s final practice match before the season proper. They take on the emerging Brisbane Lions out at Casey which is the second of three matches at the ground on Saturday. Many of the Dees best 22 have been recalled including Vice Captains Max Gawn and Neville Jetta whilst Captains Nathan Jones and Jack Viney will play restricted minutes in the VFL curtain raiser. Former Gold Coast co-captain Steven May will play his first official game for Melb

    HIT OUT by Paddy Gosch

    As far as preseason hit outs go, the Demons’ first JLT Community Series fixture against the Tigers in the blistering heat at Shepparton, was instructive of a number of things but not really conclusive as to how each team will fare in the regular season against the competition's big guns (which includes against each other). That’s the way these practice match hit outs go. Neither of the teams was at full strength, particularly Melbourne but if you were looking for the reason for the 12 point

    HOT OUT OF THE CITY by Paddy Gosch

    The Dees travel out of the city for game one of two JLT Community Series practice matches before the season proper. Our first match takes us to the floodplains of the Goldburn River in Northern Victoria to the city of Shepparton. We take on the Tigers for the first of at least 3 encounters with the 2017 Premiers this year. The game will be played in scorching temperatures so expect plenty of rotations, ice vests, fans running overtime and extra water carriers. The Demons are coming off a wi

    GAME, SET & SCRATCH by Paddy Gosch

    I always believe in starting off any report by accentuating the positive and in that regard, as at the time of writing, the Demons have not reported any injuries so that’s my major positive from today’s practice game v the Magpies (albeit that we know the club is somewhat lax in reporting these things so my best wishes go out if any of today’s participants are in intensive care at the Alfred).  Another positive was that Razor Ray performed his umpiring duties admirably which is more than I

    SCRATCH by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons are set to take on the old enemy Collingwood in a good old fashioned Scratch Match on Friday Morning. It is unknown what form the match will take, how many quarters there will be, their length, the amount of rotations or even whether they'll keep score. One thing we do know for sure is that both coaching staffs will be keeping their cards close to their chests to ensure neither will glean too much from their competition. The Dees will likely be without some of their stars as Tom

    IMAGINE by Whispering Jack

    The Demons made their official return to the training track for 2019 on a sunny Saturday morning at Goschs Paddock with most of the interest initially centred on a small patch of ground in one of the pockets where the rehab group was going through the paces. Some good pieces of news on that score. The  rehab group is considerably smaller than it was prior to the Christmas break with Christian Petracca (knee), James Harmes (shoulder), Jayden Hunt (shoulder), Neville Jetta (shoulder), Oscar M
