There was some dicscussion on this in the match thread, it's time to do this.

We we will be at the half way point of the season?

Brisbane at the G

WCE in Perth

Tigers at the G

Bulldogs at the G

Saints at the G

Geelong in Mordor

Hawthorn at the G

Sydney in Sydney

Carlton at the G

Essendon at the G

Was very generous and only found 5 wins...

I was not generous and got 4 wins, but we obviously may steal one, or lose one.....lets steal a win

Hard games

WCE in perth

Geelong in Geelong

Sydney in sydney

plus Carlton

Collongwood

Hawthorn

Our second half must be easy if we have the weakest draw in the league?

5 - 6 wins . But 1 of those wins may be a surprise win which might have our fans pencilling in September !

I've tipped us to make the finals ( 8th , 7th ? ) so anything less than 5 wins and we might struggle to get there .

Cheers ®

I'll give my reasoning:

Beat the Lions at home in Neeld's first game.

Get thrashed in Perth.

Pip the Tigers, who unforunately, have an amazing midfield that is far better than ours. We have Frawley though, and that means they don't have Riewoldt...

Beat the rebuilding Bulldogs at the G.

Beat the Saints because it is at the G.

At 4 and 1 go to Geelong, Hawthorn, Sydney and Carlton and lose all respect we gained in the first 5 weeks...

Beat the Bombers as they arrogantly come off a hiding of the GWS questioning whether we will be any better...

And get told by the Pies to 'stay down!'

After last yrars "Bruise Free" games. Carlton are a beatable team at the'G.

Unforunately, they have a blue chip midfield to our choc-chip midfield...

Unless Clark and Frawley are dominant figures, we will lose to teams with better midfields.

I've got us for 5. I'm expecting at least one surprise win (hopefully QB) but with a new coach and set up I expect that will work the other way at some point. It is sinking in that we are facing a lot of sides which need to show similar progress to us or are already there and abouts. I don't think the way footy is now allows teams to jump up the ladder, it's either a slow rise or a quick fall these days.

I got 5 wins by half way as well

As per the start of most seasons I am fairly bullish about how we will go and this year promises much. But then you look at playing Pies, Blues, Cats and Hawks over 5 weeks it could get quite ugly.

A lot will depend on the confidence of the playing group.

Go Dees!

Yes, but if we keep that attitude it will always be.

Beating Carlscum just needs A Class planning by the FD.

i hope our list does not forget those insipid games at the ' G last year.

Lets take it one week at a time, as others say 5 wins on paper look achievable, but we could lose one or two of them by a point or win them all by a margin under 1 goal.

As said previously we just need to beat those sides around us and pinch a few surprises against the top sides. I am pretty sure we will pinch a win somewhere in the West Coast, Geelong, Hawthorn, Sydney, Carlton and Collingwood matches.

Just need to start regularly winning the games we expect to win and the rest will fall in to place

How about no slaughters against us and a gradual improvement from round 1 onwards

number of wins is not that important but how about showing the fans that we are developing as individuals and more improtantly as a group.

ie no 186 point losses at either perth or Geelong

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Who would have thought?    Collingwood had a depleted side with several star players out injured, Max Gawn was in stellar form, Christian Petracca at the top of his game and Simon Goodwin was about to pull off a masterstroke in setting Alex Neal-Bullen onto him to do a fantastic job in subduing the Magpies' best player. Goody had his charges primed to respond robustly to the challenge of turning around their disappointing performance against Fremantle in Alice Springs. And if not that, t

    TURNAROUND by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons won their first game at home this year in the traditional King’s Birthday Weekend clash with Collingwood VFL on Sunday in a dramatic turnaround on recent form that breathed new life into the beleaguered club’s season. The Demons led from the start to record a 52-point victory. It was their highest score and biggest winning margin by far for the 2024 season. Under cloudy but calm conditions for Casey Fields, the home side, wearing the old Springvale guernsey as a mark of res

    POSTGAME: Rd 13 vs Collingwood

    Once again inaccuracy and inefficiency going inside 50 rears it's ugly head as the Demons suffered their second loss on the trot and their fourth loss in five games as they go down to the Pies by 38 points on Kings Birthday at the MCG.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 13 vs Collingwood

    It's Game Day and the Demons are once again faced with a classic 8 point game against a traditional rival on King's Birthday at the MCG. A famous victory will see them reclaim a place in the Top 8 whereas a loss will be another blow for their finals credentials.

    BOILED LOLLIES by The Oracle

    In the space of a month Melbourne has gone from chocolates to boiled lollies in terms of its standing as a candidate for the AFL premiership.  The club faces its moment of truth against a badly bruised up Collingwood at the MCG. A win will give it some respite but even then, it won’t be regarded particularly well being against an opponent carrying the burden of an injured playing list. A loss would be a disaster. The Demons have gone from a six/two win/loss ratio and a strong percentag

    CLEAN HANDS by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons headed into town and up Sydney Road to take on the lowly Coburg Lions who have been perennial VFL easy beats and sitting on one win for the season. Last year, Casey beat them in a practice match when resting their AFL listed players. That’s how bad they were. Nobody respected them on Saturday and clearly not the Demons who came to the game with 22 players (ten MFC), but whether they came out to play is another matter because for the most part, their intensity was lacking an
