Will 12 be enough

Had a dream last night. We just scraped into the finals. We were playing Collingwood. Everything conspired against me to get to the game on time or to get a score update. I finally get to the game at half time. The scores were Melbourne 1.16.22 and Collingwood 12.5.77. Then I woke up. Proof this club messes with my brain. 

Your dream sounds a bit like a Stephen King novel

We will win 13 games. Will will beat G.C, Syd and GWS. Finish 7th knock off the Hawks then beat the Swans again away, then knock off the Tigers in the Prelim then give West Coast a bath in the grand final. Predicted 2018 AFL Premiers the Mighty Dees❤️

I don't think 12 wins will be enough, I think we need 13. If we can manage two of those against Cats, Swans or Giants would be ideal. 👍🏻

I hope this prediction is better than your Casey 'predicted' line ups!

No, 12 wins won’t be enough. In fact, given certain results 13 may not be enough though unlike last year our excellent percentage should help us in that. 

My prediction? 14 wins finish in the top four and play the Tiges in our first final for 12 years. We would be a real chance at the G. What we don’t want is to finish third and have to play West Coast in Perth!

Can’t see the Hawks winning 4 games with their injuries but they have some easy games so you never know. 

12 wins and big % is a decent chance of getting us in but I’ll lose some sleep along the way!

Fancy hawks having an easy run home after all their recent success, gets more puzzling by the day this afl admin

Nope 14 will do it

Sorry, that's nonsense. With our percentage, if we win 13 we are in.

i agree, could make it with 12

Finals schminals....people forget we should have played finals last year and were in the hunt the year before before capitulating. The stepping stone is overdue, if we miss, it's a massive failure.

So if we miss it's a "massive failure" but if we make it then it's not worth anything?

If it's a massive failure to miss them, then it's significant to make them.

Their repeat games are against Essendon, Geelong, Sydney, St Kilda and Brisbane. That's three finalists from last year and St Kilda, who many thought was a finals contender this year. It might not have turned out that way but it's hardly "puzzling", they were given repeat games against sides who you would have thought would be strong this year.

They also played a significant number of good sides early, which opens up the draw.

Meanwhile if you're complaining about our run home, just bear in mind we've only played 4 games all year against sides currently in the top 8. All of our finals competitors have played more than that.

Have done the predictor this morning and with GWS' recent form, 13 and % will now do it. One team with 13 may miss out. 14 gets you in and a sneaky chance of top 4

I suspect we will bounce back against the crows and beat the suns. And I’m backing us to beat the swans as well. The last two rounds we are a chance as well. Season is a long way from over for us. But it won’t be easy

Carlt  W

ESSENDON (12 wins)

Sydney  W

Hawks  W

12, no way.  I see no plausible way that 12 will be enough .... even taking into account upsets.

13 and a great % will do it.    Or in the case of GWS, 12 and a half wins maybe might get then 8th spot .

13 needed and I think it beyond this playing and coaching group! 3 More wins with 

Adelaide, ( loss) GCS ( Win) Swans (probable loss) Buddy will tear us a new one WC ( loss) and GWS (Probable loss) 

so possibly 2 wins I can see us missing out yet again.

Losses to Geelong X 2 And Saints coming back to bite BIG TIME!

about how I read it also

Crows finding form..and we get the wobbles...Not a good time to have to play in Pie Floater'sville

Suns...should be a win...but even they will put up a fight..I say...a win...not resounding but we get the chocolates

Swans...very big danger game...i fully expect them  to start getting back on track before finals

West Coast...perth...meh !!!!

and Danger Will Robinson come Giants.

if we can manage a win agaisnt the crows we might get a roll on....fail....and we're rolling the other way.

Geez we make it bloody hard on ourselves...this could have all been locked away...ages ago...but no...we're Melbourne

Sydney are vulnerable at the moment. They have Essendon this week at Etihad, then Collingwood at home. If they lose both, and we lose to Adelaide but beat GCS then it makes the Sydney game vital. Win that, and we go a game plus sizeable percentage ahead of them. All of the chasing pack, Hawthorn, Essendon, Adelaide, Port, play each other over the final rounds. I can't see any of them winning more than 13, more likely they will be on 12. Win against Adelaide this week, and I reckon we are almost there!

Melbourne v Sydney ought to be an absolute cracker.

Two Yo-Yo teams fighting it out for the Russell Cup !!
