Dream Forward Line

Recommended Posts

Nice to remember Jakovich in particular that game against North when he kicked 11 goals and about 10 points and was just running around getting the ball for himself, he was a freak!

schwartz before he got injured, the nine goals against the Swans, he was going to be a superstar!

Farmer kicking 8 against Fremantle at Etihad!

But it’s gotta be about 2019:

Melksham Weideman Petracca

ANB TMac Spargo or Farmer if he comes good

Gawn & Preuss dropping into forward line

Oliver swapping with Petracca

Adding May, Preuss and KK just brings another dimension to the team. If Hunt can get it together and J Smith take the next step it’s going to be hard picking a best 22! Roll on round one, can’t wait!!!!!

Gawn Brayshaw Viney

Harmes Oliver KK

all in the middle feeding the forward line, sounds good!

Ppl and media still caught up in 'fwd line' rubbish.

It's about a team...a delivery system...game style. Not about 6 blokes who may or may not fire etc. 

Happy to have best TEAM...others can have best bits n pieces ;)

It always was,  mr beel'.

But Mfc doesn't seem to get that,  along the journey of the decades.  I think we are getting it at the moment... thank godAFL

HF: Lyon Schwartz Davey

F Farmer Fanning Jakovich 

IC: Neitz

 

Premise is based on their best efforts.

Love Jurrah but Davey invented/took Fwd 50 pressure to a new level.

And I love Neitz but Fanning as a big game performer would be the starter.

87ish to now, but excluding robbie:

b: jetta - wight - ingerson
hb: s febey - neitz - b lovett
😄 tingay - g lovett - davey
hf: lyon - schwarz - jurrah
f: stynes - jakovich - farmer
foll: gawn - oliver - t viney
i/c: jones - j viney - yze - green
emerg: prymke - woewodin - vince - whelan

but that's just a random run thru without 'thinking' about it...

Surely Tommy Mac (as a forward) better than Prymke , and Bernie.

Farmer?

I wasn’t aware that we had a Farmer on our 2019 list however I like the way you think!

(Maybe we have to make do with Garlett? )

He was threatening someone to a trip to his Wolf Creek dungeon at the manor in another thread.

I shudder to think that I may be responsible for the potential further degradation of a fellow human being by my inartful comments.

    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
