  1. Really great gutsy win. Insightful comment by Daisy post match when she said they couldn’t make up their minds about being offensive or defensive until the last quarter when they had no choice. A lesson learnt hopefully. I think that could be ssid about much of the season.Hopefully it will be all out attack in the semi. By the way isn’t Harriet Cordner a smart footballer. Does some really clever things when it comes to the crunch...
  2. Given that logic, where does that leave us in the West in two weeks. They have some serious talent up forward, we will need to be on our game. Is that a better back line than the one which was cleaned up in 2018. If so, where?
  3. For pure skill l think hunt is class. We don’t have all that many very fast runners and he is one. I would very much like to see more pressure from him, and he will be invaluable with at half back or the wing. We need pace and we don’t have an abundance now...
  4. The Weid can play well and take big marks. He did it regularly in the 2018 final series. I too think it is a confidence thing. He also in those games provided great forward pressure. l suggest when Max is back and Weid plays full time as a forward, that the confidence with his marking will return particularly if we deliver to our forwards as we did in this game. When on song, Weid is a key part of our game. I am confident this will continue.
  5. No, Lewis was purely BOG last week at Casey. Demanded selection. At his best is clearly in our first 18. We still need to win games to build for next season and convince the competition we are still a force.
  6. Respectfully, we are not a development team. We are in the premiership window, or should be. We need our best team on the park and when all are fit we will beat all comers. We should not go back into a developing team mentality because we aren’t.
  7. That’s 13 off our list, and seven certainties for the senior team. Says a lot about our predicament.
  8. He should, he was great in the twos, particularly the first half. I reckon he is worth a go, good back up for Gawn, and would help put more pressure on Martin.
  9. My point entirely. Eddie had the ear of the Labor Government (this is not a party political issue by the way) and was ruthless about its conclusion. We could have been. The political naivety knows no bounds!
  10. I agree LH. I am just staggered the way those on here are prepared to be pushed around by the powers that be. The Dogs, Pies, Roos, Tigers, Saints got world class clubs facilities, mostly paid by the public dollar, because they knew how to play the public game: ie to access the government dollar. Having been in this field for most of my adult life, l am staggered by how naive the MFC have been in this area. Our fate is Casey, away from our rightful heritage, unless we become very much more ruthless. State Government are always ripe for the picking by AFL clubs - it is simply we are yet to realise it, unlike most of the Melbourne competition. ruthless we are not! There are better ways for us....
  11. I agree M5. Unfortunately l can’t see the Pies buying it, inspite of their “ancestral home” [censored]. Eddie is not that silly, although he does sometime have Trump tendencies!
  12. I think the most common sense one is the head quarters by the Yarra adjacent to the current training ground. It would have to though included everything: admin, coaching, gym and recovery, player facilities, and club facilities for members. This means a bloody big garage underneath. l can’t see any other way. ld be more than happy to congregate after the game in the members bar overlooking the Yarra. Really can’t see why this can’t be done. It is also an area in melbourne where local residences are minimal, although the few people who live in Cremorne I’m sure wouldnt agree. Perhaps we should invite them all to be members!!
  13. Yes. Seen Munro a number of times at Casey and always looked a class act. Also a great, accurate, long kick. Worth a punt l reckon....
  14. I seem to remember when we made our breakout first finals appearance in 1987 after 23 years in the wilderness, we just scraped into the final 5 in spite of winning something like 8 of our last ten games (l stand corrected as to the precise details). Could this be a repeat? With something like 17 of our senior list on the sidelines ATM, the performance in Perth was really quite remarkable, especially considering we beat them inside 50s, and it was only because of our deplorable kicking that we lost. As we get our list back over the remainder of the season, we will get stronger. The next two games are more than winnable, then Collingwood awaits on Queen’s Birthday. By that stage we may well have half a dozen of our 1st 18 back, and then ripe for a crack after the bye. All is not lost. I must say l was heartened by Harmes comments after the game: something like “winning is not our only focus now, we want to play our game style, winning will come”. If this means they relax a little more and play their natural style, who knows what might happen?
