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

Collingwood at the G

Who will we beat?

And how many will delete their vote and change their prediction in the next few weeks?

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

    GAMEDAY: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    It's Game Day and after 2 losses on the trot the Dees must win against the Saints today at the MCG to keep in touch with the Top 4. A loss today will see them drop out of the Top 8 for the first time since 2020.

    HEAVEN OR HELL by The Oracle

    Clashes between Melbourne and St Kilda are often described as battles between the forces of heaven and hell. However, based on recent performances, it’s hard to get excited about the forthcoming match between these two sides. It would be fair to say that, at the moment, both of these teams are in the doldrums. The Demons have become the competition’s slow starters while the Saints are not only slow to begin, they’re not doing much of a job finishing off their games either. About the only th

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    POSTGAME: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    Many warned that this was a danger game and the Demons were totally outclassed all game by a young Eagles team at Optus Stadium in Perth as they were defeated by 35 points.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.
