Discussion on recent allegations about the use of illicit drugs in football is forbidden
  • IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING

    Posting unsubstantiated rumours on this website is strictly forbidden.

    Demonland has made the difficult decision to not permit this platform to be used to discuss & debate the off-field issues relating to the Melbourne Football Club including matters currently being litigated between the Club & former Board members, board elections, the issue of illicit drugs in footy, the culture at the club & the personal issues & allegations against some of our players & officials ...

    We do not take these issues & this decision lightly & of course we believe that these serious matters affecting the club we love & are so passionate about are worthy of discussion & debate & I wish we could provide a place where these matters can be discussed in a civil & respectful manner.

    However these discussions unfortunately invariably devolve into areas that may be defamatory, libelous, spread unsubstantiated rumours & can effect the mental health of those involved. Even discussion & debate of known facts or media reports can lead to finger pointing, blame & personal attacks.

    The repercussion is that these discussions can open this website, it’s owners & it’s users to legal action & may result in this website being forced to shutdown.

    Our moderating team are all volunteers & cannot moderate the forum 24/7 & as a consequence problematic content that contravenes our rules & standards may go unnoticed for some time before it can be removed.

    We reserve the right to delete posts that offend against our above policy & indeed, to ban posters who are repeat offenders or who breach our code of conduct.

    WE HAVE BUILT A FANTASTIC ONLINE COMMUNITY AT DEMONLAND OVER THE PAST 23 YEARS & WE WOULD LIKE TO CONTINUE TO BE ABLE TO DISCUSS THE CLUB WE LOVE & ARE SO PASSIONATE ABOUT.

    Thank you for your continued support & understanding. Go Dees.


Quiet Trengove

Recommended Posts

Trengove is a quality individual and at least the equal of Scully in terms of men you want around a footy club. I was at demons training at AAMI on Thursday prior to NAB cup and I overheard media from several networks praising Trengove as a player and person. After training I experienced his humility first hand as he stopped and chatted with my 6 year old son on his way of the ground.

I started this thread because Trengove appears to have an unassuming manner, but also an unassuming public profile. It doesn't seem that other teams plan how to play him, whereas I reckon they plan for Davey, Green, Jurrah and Frawley. Maybe other Dees players haven't yet earned closer scrutiny adn study from other teams.

Some players have natural grunt - Jones, McKenzie, Bail

Some players look like duds early on but grow slowly into AFL standard footballers. Jamar, Watts, Garland

Others have a sense of balance and poise from day 1, and these players are usually taken note of from the first. Trengove is one of these players with natural poise and balance yet doesn't seem to have drawn the targeted plans of other teams.

However, if he plays in the NAB cup round 2 game with the skill and execution he showed against Port, the fovus of other teams radar may switch very quickly.

"Look like duds early"?

Maybe you could say that about Jamar, but not the others.

"Look like they are underdeveloped" maybe.

And Trengove is not yet overtly damaging to the opposition - yet.

When he learns how to really hurt other sides, he'll be one of the many they try to stop.

I see him as a bit like Bartel or Goddard - so valuable to a side, because they can go and play anywhere and not only fill that position, but excel.

A true elite utility.

He will be valuable for us because he will be able to eliminate any apparent weaknesses.

yes well said

versatility has been Bailey's mantra all along. The likes of Watts and Morton will play over the shop too and we will be a very challenging matchup overall

i really think the best of trengove is still to come. he is a couple more years off.

he faded out at the end of last season. i think he just got to sore from the workload. (sellwood had ablett and bartel etc..)

he will get a lot more attention this year and If we play final this season it will be a big workload for him.

he could be a 40 game player by the end of this season.

from what i've read about trengove he's a smart boy...studying physio at uni. melb uni i think.

Ok guys lets get serious what a game by the boy!

was superb did hear i twas his highest possession game today not that possessions mean everything but, add his tackling marking and a couple of goals yeah probably his best game to date? As others have said he just makes things happen

Share the love,

and whats his nickname?

Definitely the most 'çomplete' game he has played for the club. He was prolific and clean with almost everything he did. Okay, it wasn't against the best but it should give him a lot confidence going forward that he can be one of the club's top 3 or 4 players on a consistent basis.

Well done Trenners!

good call Jordie,

Trengove was great today. Loads of important touches and should of ended up with more goals. Kid is going to get better and better..

Did he hit the post twice or three times? Great today.

Also loved the way he linked up with Tapscott a few times, seemed to know exactly when & where to make position when Tappy got possession.

3 times i think. Two of them came within 60 seconds of eachother... if 2 out of 3 of those went in it would've lifted him to a EXCELLENT game. Greeny kicked 2.4 with 2 out on the full as well.

Could you get a more unassuming profile than Scully??

If he wasn't no 1 you wouldn't hear a world about him (other than for his freakish football skills)

The single most important player for our flag push.IMHO

Love Jack T.

Got so sick of watching flawed individuals with talent,think they had done enough prior to a win.Time to stamp out the past mediocrity of this club,and start fresh with the likes of Trengove

I've said it a million times... he and Frawley are the two players I have ZERO worry about on the list.

He is as polished a player as I've seen at the club. Every time he gets it, he does good things. Born leader. Our own Hayes/Bartel, but better kick.

Gosh. We've turned over nearly 100% of our list in the last 3-4 years and brought in the likes of Trengove. I thought that's what we've been doing.

    ICEBREAKER by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons have broken the ice for season 2024 with a pulsating come-from-behind victory over Port Melbourne in which it took the lead for the first time at the halfway mark of the final quarter. The game played in mild Autumn conditions in neutral territory at Kinetic Park, Frankston, never reached great heights in standard but it proved gripping in character at the end at the Casey Demons overcame the Borough to win by 15 points after trailing badly early in the second half.  P

    MAULED by Whispering Jack

    The writing was on the wall from the very first bounce of the football. The big men went up, Max Gawn more often than not, decisively won the ruck hit out and invariably a Brisbane Lions onballer either won the battle on the ground or halved the contest and they went at it repeatedly until they finally won out. Melbourne managed the first goal from Alex Neal-Bullen but after that the visitors shut out every area of Demon presence around the ground except in the ruck duels. It was a mauling.
