  1. Yep folks, we are now on the bottom. Extraordinary, hardly believable.
  2. Today's was a great game and occasion, between two great clubs. A bit sad too, because we are not in the same class and probably never will be.
  3. MFC History and Character Commence rebuild. Fall to the bottom, a couple of years of total embarrassment, at end of year 2 a couple of unexpected wins,. Engender hope Climb ladder to mid-table respectability or a little better. Encourage optimism. Founder, fall back, get passed by other clubs. Repeat.
  4. As ever Josh is very open and informative. Re the main issue, Step 1 in the process is Jesse making a decision. If he decides he wants to go then Josh and his people get to work to get Steven May. As for May himself, from the brief highlight tapes I have seen of him he is clearly a big physical crash and bash type player. He doesn’t strike one as being hugely skilful to be honest. He disposals by foot in particular look a bit floaty and imprecise. Oscar looks to be better in that regard. But Josh says they have been following him for a while so they must see more to him. I guess I trust the back room people.
  5. Anyone who saw Smith in last week's VFL prelim got any comment? How did he play?
  6. Goodness, big call! Clearly the selection committee see something in Smith which I for one haven't seen. But I trust them. Sorry for Fritsch, terribly sorry, but its a brutal game. He's young, a fantastic talent, he'll get another chance. Go Dees!
  7. Good luck to all from London. My sister sent me over an MFC scarf during the week, and notwithstanding that it’s still pretty warm over here i’ll wear it today, as a sign of solidarity with all Demon lovers. I wonder if anyone on the tube will recognise it?? Anyway go Dees. As usual I’ll follow the game through this site, too nervous to watch it, and anyway I am supposed to be working! The first few minutes will be crucial.
  8. I have weighed in on this one before. He’s a special talent: huge pace, spring, good hands, kicks the ball a mile, fanatic attack on the ball. He’ll come good. Talk of trading him is ridiculous.
  9. This game is more than a chance to progress to a prelim. We talk of hoodoos? This is the biggest of them all. We have been humiliated by Hawthorn time after time after time again. Literally for decades. This is the opportunity for redemption and revenge. Sure in public put out the usual bland platitudes about what a great club they are, how we’ll have to play at a top to have a chance etc etc. But in the inner sanctum focus on how Hawthorn in general and Clarkson in particular, has made us suffer, made us a total laughing stock. Come the bounce next Friday we tear into them with total ruthlessness.
  10. Well it’s now 810am London time, time to get on a red double decker to head into the City of London for work. It’s trempting to attempt to say something profound but hell, skip it, just want to say good luck one and all Demons, keep the faith whatever happens tonite. Go Melbourne!!
