GAMEDAY - Preliminary Final vs Eagles

Recommended Posts

Seems ridiculous to even say it but MASSIVE game now. Collingwood done us a favour, was worried about Richmond, no need to worry anymore. 

First things first though, bring the ball to ground in our defensive 50, contested possession and switch to Petracca. Melksham and McDonald running back into goal, simple...

Heres a question.... what the hell are you all going to do to fill your day until 3.20???? 

 

My wife has a business making jam and chutney so I'm going to fire up the stove and make 500 jars for her today.  Should keep me busy before the bounce lol

My father and older brother are coming over to watch the game at my house. Youngest one is there.

My brother and I have a bet, if we lose, I have to watch a horror movie of his choice with him (I’m terrified of horror movies.) If we win, he takes me to Richard Marx. So, I really REALLY want to win.

We need to attack and be direct, can’t afford to waste forward entries by kicking to the pockets all the time.

I have no idea what to expect really. I went into both previous finals thinking we would fight hard but struggle to overcome the opposition's experience. After watching our resolve thus far, I can't help but feel confident about tomorrow's outcome, despite the odds stacked against us.

There's been a recurring theme of storytelling trilogies since Goodwin took charge, culminating in the last two weeks. After two heartbreaking losses against the Cats this year, we overcame them on our third attempt when it mattered most. After two losses against his old team since joining the Dees, Lewis finally beat them on his third attempt. If we win today, it marks our third consecutive win against the Eagles in Perth after 9 consecutive losses. It would mark our third consecutive finals win for the first time in 18 years.

I know the fairytale endings don't always come true, but I'll be sending the team every ounce of positive energy I can tomorrow. So good luck, Demons. All we ask is you give it everything you've got; that'll be enough for this Dees supporter.

Are you talking about two matches here?😳 Glad to see that you are confident about tomorrow’s Grand Final with Bayley BOG! 👍

I feel a little crazy
I feel a little strange
Like I'm in a pay phone
Without any change
I feel a little edgy
I feel a little weird
I feel like a schoolboy
Who's grown a beard
I'm livin' in the 70's
Eatin' fake food under plastic trees
My face gets dirty just walkin' around
I need another pill to calm me down
I feel a bit nervous
I feel a bit mad
I feel like a good time that's never been had
I feel a bit fragile
I feel a bit low
Like I learned the right lines
But I'm on the wrong show
I'm livin' in the 70's
I feel like I lost my keys
Got the right day but I got the wrong week
And I get paid for just bein' a freak
I feel a little insane
I feel a bit dazed
My legs are shrinkin'
And the roof's been raised
I feel a little mixed up
I feel a little [censored]
I feel like a barman that can't drink a beer
I'm livin' in the 70's
I feel like I lost my keys
Got the right day but I got the wrong week
And I get paid for just bein' a freak
 
I AM PETRIFIED !!

Does this make you feel better?

Strangely still supremely confident we'll eventually run out winners by 18.

First one bird...then another ;)

Go Dees

The AFL would be salivating at the prospect of a Collingwood v Melbourne Grand Final. The first showdown between both clubs in a Grand Final since Melbourne's last premiership 5 decades ago! Nothing would be more fitting.

There's such rich history between the clubs (both as rivals and of themselves) and fantastic stories across the entire ground. The two best rucks all year going head to head. Howe playing against his first team. Weideman playing against his heritage.

It would also be the first all-Victorian Grand Final in 7 years and only the 5th time that's happened since our last Grand Final appearance.

Alas, all the dreaming is for nought if we can't get the job done today. The Demons have their destiny in their hands, it's up to them now.

So true Saber, the city of Melbourne will be pumping with a Melb/Coll Grand Final, and everyone that doesn't go for Coll will be supporting the Dees, a bit like the Dogs two years ago.

I don't know why but I think the stars will align to make this happen, super proud we have got this far with either result today, but I'm liking this winning feeling.

I am super chilled. And have been all finals series. I am more excited at the prospect of playing a grand final, than I am nervous about the outcome.

How can you not be nervous this is unchartered territory for most Dees supporters. However removing the blinkers the Dees can win this for three main reason. 1. Gawn v Lycett what more need to be said; 2. Midfield depth Viney; Brayshaw; Harmes; Petracca; Jones; et al versus Yeo Redden Sheed Shuey 3. Team Depth on bench Petracca; Tyson; Spargo; Smith v Ryan, Dugan, Venables; Vardy.

As Pies showed last night the Dees are finals hardened if they believe they have the talent to win. Weagles played a bottom four side a month ago in the Lions and have played one game since. I think this give the Dees a massive intensity advantage. We need to hit them hard early and take the noise factor out. Everyone talk about the benefit of the crowd but it can have the reverse impact if your losing as tension and stress build. I am confident that we have the team to win this and their forward advantage is not as big as our midfield advantage. 

In finals campaign past we have exhausted ourselves getting there or have been an inferior team. This is not the case this time and why I am hugely confident that if we give our best we WILL win.

Problem is with Collingwood, even if we win, the media will be all over them. It will be the grand final Collingwood lost.

Look at 2002. Hardly any photos of Brisbane’s victory. Just pages and pages of Malthouse and Buckley in tears.

This is the big one I reckon.

Win this and we will do the filth.

It’s going to be a long morning and afternoon waiting. Tough to repeat  back to back wins over there. Worried about lack of outside run, we have to max out the pressure for a 100 minutes.

I don't think so Cassie. If we do get through we'll have the rest of Australia supporting us next week; would be of epic proportions.

My mind is addled with the collective thoughts and views of Demonlanders and the football media rotating like a whirlwind.  Nervous tension, excitement, confidence, concern, bloody hell! ..........  I've decided that a long walk is a safer option than the chainsaw and wood splitting that I had planned to fill the next 5 to 6 hours.

Good luck fellow Demonlanders.  Enjoy the game!

Goes without saying that we mustn't get blown out early...if we can be within striking distance at half time our contested ability may wear them down at the pointy end.

Huge test for our tall defenders. Would be a very nice day to have Lever but what can you do.

80 tackles and we play in a Grand Final.

Already done back to back, we need back to back to back!

Interesting, watching and listening to Richard Marx is like watching a horror movie! 😜
