GAMEDAY - ROUND 5


Chook

Recommended Posts

Today I'd like to kick off this week's gameday thread by asking who might be our sub for today. Will it be Aaron Davey, Sam Blease, David Rodan or someone else?

Also, does anyone know whether we'll have to wear our clash strip today?

i think it will be Rodan but wouldn't be surprised if it was Blease

will we start Frawley or Mcdonald on Brown?

I reckon Frawley will play on Brown and McDonald will play on the more athletic Cornelius.

As for the sub, I have a feeling it will be Aaron Davey most weeks this year. But based on Blease's terrible performance against Essendon, I think I'd like him on the bench instead.

Would love to see Jack Watts play that hit up CHF role today.

I just want to see Jack care enough to play a role Have a go Jack!

This is what annoys me the most about him, the bloke should be tearing sides like GWS up right now and i'm not convinced we haven't developed him okay, it seems to all be there when he wants to do things, it's just he is abit soft and lacks passion and confidence at the moment, which is unfortunate.

Was it last time we played Brisbane that Jonno Brown made Watts his personal ragdoll in the space of about 15 minutes? Anyone but Watts this time.

It's still a difficult match up. Even if Brown is approaching his twilight, he still has that amazing tank that allows him to drag his opponent around all day. Who has the body, stamina and commitment to stick with him, or conversely the knowledge of when to peel off him? Would have to be Chip I guess.

I've tipped a win cause I think we're a chance, but Brisbane will be viewing this in the same light as we did GWS. They have a point to prove.

Bottom line doesn't change. These are games we need to win in order to say there's been any improvement on last year. They are down on form and missing key players. A shellacking will be indefensible, but once again there will be some who find a way.

Who are our small defenders again?

I think people get caught up that a small defender means you need to be small. I would expect Terlich to take Garlett, Garland to take Betts which he has done well before and Watts to take Yarran subject to his performance today. If not Nicho, Strauss and Dunn will be ready to step up and may get a guernsey regardless.

Both sides are out of form, though I guess since we won last week, and are coming off a 12-goal quarter, we're less so.

Both sides are missing key players.

The one main difference - it's in Brisbane.

In Melbourne, I'd be a lot more confident, but putting our side on a foreign ground, especially since we've been at the G all year so far, makes me doubt our chances.

At our best (first half v West Coast, last quarter v GWS) we can and should beat them. Whether we can reach our best for long enough up there remains to be seen.

Would be extremely disappointed to see them get thrashed today! They are set up for a good win and two in a row if they can find the same form as in the last qtr last week! Go Dees!

    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

    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.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had

    CENTIMETRES by Whispering Jack

    Our game is one where the result is often decided by centimetres; the touch of a fingernail, a split-second decision made by a player or official, the angle of vision or the random movement of an oblong ball in flight or in its bounce and trajectory. There is one habit that Melbourne seems to have developed of late in its games against Carlton which is that the Demons keep finding themselves on the wrong end of the stick in terms of the fine line in close games at times when centimetres mak
