Coburg Lions v Casey Scorpions



Recommended Posts

I wonder if Welsh may have been talking about Jordie when ripping on the players who made mistakes.

35 touches and one would assume bulk tackles/clearances but not in the best?

Glad to see Tappy in the best. I still have faith he can make it as a player.

Well done as well to Kent, sure he will be in sometime shortly after the mid year spell

Well I suppose it depends if you think Toumpas & Salem are going to cement themselves as best 22 by year's end.

And it also depends if you think Evans or Kent are better users of the footy than Matt Jones and whether that means they are better options long term.

Did Strauss play, or have I missed him being injured yet again?

I was keen to see your thoughts. I think Kent is a given due to his combo of speed, hardness and skill. He is also more forward than mid. I would have him ahead of Salem, Riley and Toumpas in that role and well ahead of Byrnes. Evans to me is not in the picture. Michie is the interesting one as to whether he can jump ahead of one of the others. I would say fighting it out with Toumpas and Riley again and possibly M Jones. Clisby is the forgotten man and I rate his talents. We have a hard run of games coming up and it will show where some of them are at. The great thing is we will have legitimate replacement options for those to consider for those who don't perform.

For me Clisby is a straight replacement for Terlich long term.

Terlich's disposal is just too iffy to command that half back running role.

The quicker they acquiesce and call themselves the Casey Demons and let our people run the place the better for all concerned.

I think so, a bit like the Hawthorn situation with Box Hill.

Funny how he smacks our players yet look who he names in the best.. all Melbourne players. Maybe his Casey players need to pull thdir fingers out and stop relying on our players to do all the hard work. Some of our young players are there to just develop their game.

Always said Welsh wasn't the right man for the job and got hounded down a couple of weeks ago.. Reeks of Neeld like qaulities with us public spray on our players.

After reading that diatribe in the Age, (if it is true of course) attributed to Welsh, I would say he is reading from a different song sheet and won't be around next season. Unless there is some good cop bad cop thing going on but I doubt it. I am sure Roos has moved on from rubbishing players in general. Nothing constructive there at all just a whinge about some AFL whingers. .

There is nothing wrong with Welsh's comments, I was there, 2nd half from MFC listed players was poor, with 2 maybe 3 exceptions, Jordie, Fitzy and Michie

If they were that poor then why were the players in the best all Melbourne players? Dont like the public spray one bit. We have gone through that enough as it is with Neeld. Jordie had 35 disposals and didn't get in the best so obviously a poor game.

Our players must think who the F this bloke thinks he is.

Then again you were a big Neeld fan.

So the MFC listed players are whinging to Welsh about why they are not getting a game?

Because that is what he said.

And there is something wrong with airing that out.

from what i have heard he is a rooster smoker of the highest order and that players are much more responsive to comments from brad miller, whether they are melbourne listed or not

Anyone under the faintest of criticism, never fear! Satyriconhome will come to your rescue!

FFS. It doesn't matter if it is correct that they underperformed or not.

It's simply bad coaching to give that reaction. Publicly or otherwise.

Welsh is clearly an amateur and the sooner he is gone, the happier I will be.

For all the 'number' lovers out there.

McKenzie 35 possies = Can't get in the best

Hopefully sheds some light.

'steve' as you know the bests are not always a great indication and as you say numbers aren't either. It depends a lot on who gave them.

Unfortunately for those of us who can't get to the games we have to go on them (numbers and bests) to some extent and reports from posters who were there.

My quote won't work, but considering I sat through the whole game, that gives me the right to express an opinion, again I was disappointed that when the game was on the line only McKenzie and Fitzpatrick gave a yelp, I don't know who was handing out the best, but Tappy was nowhere near, again in my opinion..so DD, rather than personally attack me which is about all you are capable of, come up with something constructive...another example, Blease was excellent in the first half and helped establish the 30 point lead as well as other MFC players, but he went missing in the second half...also take my word for it, Brad Miller was not exactly overjoyed with the 3rd quarter either

How was McKenzie's ball use 'Sat', was he trusting himself to kick the ball?

McKenzie's ball use was good again, I think what disappointed Welsh the most was the Scorps played really well in the first half and had a 30 odd point lead, looked way better than Coburg, then in the second half they went home early, frustration was what you heard in the 3/4 time address, and sheer anger in the newspapers...it will be interesting to read Brett Allison's review this week, as they have been really 'honest' lately

Thanks 'Sat'. I look forward to Brett's reviews, they give a good indication of where a player is at.

Good or bad, it doesn't matter, a coach publicly airing his grievences is a dumb move.

It is exactly what Paul Roos wouldn't do.

If you have an issue, speak to the players behind closed doors, and to the media you say "disappointing outcome, we need to work harder". You don't single our MFC players, when the rest of the Casey players are pretty damn average as well.

Poor move that makes him sound like an idiot.

Why?, we have posters on here constantly bemoaning the 'spin' they hear from the Club and coaches, (that has changed with Roos), but when a coach comes out and launches a broadside at the players, no spin, he is then criticised...or personally attacked by some of the more less constructive in this topic......I don't have a problem with it, assume if Roos does Welsh will be told.

Correct or incorrect, Welsh showed a distinct lack of both tact and control with his response.

If the last 7 years have shown us anything, it is that Welsh's choice of approach is ineffective and shouldn't be tolerated.

    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

    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.

    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
