Or pretty much, last years team with Frost coming in to FB allowing Dunn to play 3rd tall and Howe to then be set more in to a floating role. Lumumba in as a half back/wing runner to lift our running power. Most of last years midfield the same (at least to start with).

Then a brand new deep forward line of Hogan and Garlett. Plus Petracca who I think will just be too talented up forward to leave out.

I can't see Roo's throwing the boys into the fire round 1, he wants them to develope and prove themselves amount men, round 3/4 if they are racking up possessions he'll add them in then.

Big preseason for Toumpas, really needs to come on in leaps and bounds for himself and the team

Looking at these teams another tall defender would be good. Mids we know have a lot of players that can run through our midfield.

Considering that out of the 11 players leaving only one made a meaningful contribution in 2014, the list will immediately be in a much stronger position barring an injury explosion.

The last couple of years I think we have witnessed some very shrewd list management decisions and hopefully some outstanding recruiting.

We have been fooled before, but the professionalism is pervading into all areas of the club.

Hopefully the club with Plapp can start to settle the Casey situation.

In case you didn't notice it is a generic team [c.f. round 1] as it has Dawes in it who is suspended for the first round.

Although I haven't indicated as such, I expect that Salem and Grimes will be a regular in the first 22 and that my views will have changed after the preseason and the emergence of injuries.

Back: Garland Dunn Jetta

HB: Grimes T.Mcdonald Lumumba

Wing: Vince Viney Watts

HF: Howe Hogan Kent

F: Garlett Dawes Pederson

Ruck: Jamar RR: Jones Rov:Tyson

Bench: Cross, Newton, Bail

Sub: Salem

The last few spots on the bench are up for grabs and this line up is clearly dependent on injuries and what not, JKH, Matt Jones and Toumpas especially. I am chosing Bail and Newton over these as Newton is the big bodied mid fielder and Bail adds speed and also is a bit of a utility.

The younger boys will be given the opportunity to prove themselves in the VFL and there is no need to rush them into the ones.

The fact our list is in a much better position than it was 24 months ago makes choosing these teams difficult, But Fitzy, Gawn, Spencer and King will be allowed more time to really knock down the door, especially since Pedersons season last year was very good.

I have a real good feeling that Brayshaw and Petracca will become mainstays in the senior side sooner rather than later.

They are both big bodied,competitive beasts with that natural ball getting ability with an attacking burst.

You just watch them go in the pre season trial games, they will be hard to ignore, just like JKH and Salem did last year, the only difference is these guys bodies seem pretty hardened,and it looks like they don't mind the contact.

'Best 22' 2014 vs 2015

OUT: Frawley, Pedersen, Terlich, M Jones, JKH, Salem

IN: Frost, Hogan, Lumumba, Garlett, Frost, Newton

I have Grimes saving his career as a ute, Howe as a ute, Bail on the wing, and McD, Frost, Dunn, Garland, Jetta and Lumumba in the backline.

Garlett, Kent, and Watts with three talls - Gawn, Dawes, and Hogan.

IMO of course.

Nowadays there has to be a third tall / second ruckman, doesn't there?

For me, that means that the team has to have either Pedersen or Fitzpatrick. Gawn, Jamar and Spencer seem to be pure, full-time rucks, who offer little when spending time in the forward line. We have to have someone who can play predominantly as a forward, but give a good chop-out in the ruck.

Dawes, like what Malthouse believed, would be perfect if he had the tank / desire to play this role. Unfortunately, he believed that this was the main reason for his form plummeting, and then ultimately leaving Collingwood.

JKH will play for most of 2015 I'm tipping.

Melbourne are better with him in the side.

I agree.

I see him as a future midfielder that adds a different and very important and different dimension to our list. I think he is a great talent.

I see the 2015 team as an improvement on the 2014 team.

    SOCIAL DISTANCING by George on the Outer

    It was good to see the MFC players practicing the directives about social distancing at the game against West Coast.  Pity was that they continued to do so after the first bounce of the ball, as they allowed numerous WCE players run around un-hindered, with not a Melbourne player within 1.5 metres of them! They then found themselves looking at nearly a 5 goal deficit at the first break, which was to be essentially the final margin for the game. It is difficult to judge exactly what is going

    BEST IN SHOW by Whispering Jack

    I am writing this knowing that the AFL has deemed that the opening round of competition will proceed but fully believing that it should not.  The world is going through cataclysmic change as a result of the overwhelming spread of the Covid-19 virus and I agree that a distraction like sport would be good for the public. However, while the physical threat to the population is bad enough, there are other  issues to be addressed including the mental health of the community and the effects on th

    TASSIE DEVILS by Van Demon

    If you were looking for something new from the Demons that wasn’t there last year, you didn’t have to look further than the perfectly trimmed grass surface of UTAS Stadium last night as the team steamrolled the Hawks to record a comprehensive 32-point victory to complete their Marsh Community Series commitments for 2020. One new thing was the fact that for the second Marsh game in a row, the team finished full of running and they dominated the second half without the presence or the dominan

    SOUTH OF THE BORDER by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons will go into their final Marsh Series match with a strong lineup against the Hawks in Tasmania. Both Max Gawn and Steven May, who were recovering from injuries in first Marsh Series match, have both been named. It is unclear whether Max will be on restricted minutes and will likely get breaks in the ruck with Sam Weideman and rookie Luke Jackson getting their turns in the middle. Angus Brayshaw will be getting his first taste of competitive football despite playing in last week’s

    KANGAROO CAUGHT by Whispering Jack

    There was a fair amount of debate in our area as to whether the game warranted a full blown match report because it was felt that it was really an elevated version of a training session with match simulation but against a team in opposition colours. Although notionally the stronger side, North seemed to be using the occasion for the purpose of working on aspects of their game plan, one of the features of which seemed to be based on taking the longest possible route out of defence and good luck w

    JUST AN ABERRATION by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne unveiled its top recruits with new fitness boss Darren Burgess and mid-sized bull Christian Petracca sharing top billing in the team’s Marsh Community Series opener in front of 3,095 football starved fans at Casey Fields and thousands of others watching on screens of various shapes and sizes.  What they saw was a different Melbourne to the one that failed to run out its JLT Series games last year and then crashed in a heap early in the season proper with performances lacking the z

    CROWDOWN by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons open their 2020 season account with a "home" game against the Adelaide Crows at Casey Fields. It’s been more than 5 and half agonising months for the team and supporters who are eager to atone for the disappointing 2019 season which saw the Dees go from Preliminary Finalist to 2nd bottom on the ladder. The preseason campaign has been a hard slog with the addition of respected High Performance Manager Darren Burgess. We caught a glimpse of the gut busting sessions in the Melbourne

    THE YEAR THE SKY FELL by The Oracle

    After a number of years of linear movement up the ladder, the Melbourne Football Club unexpectedly went into serious decline in 2019, slumping from fourth to 17th in a season that coach Simon Goodwin described “a complete wipe-out”. Those around the club who tried to analyse the apocalyptic events that unfolded during the year were hard pressed to find a single reason for the debacle but the most plausible explanation was that the club’s troubles stemmed from a lack of fitness and injuries that

    BACK IN STYLE by Whispering Jack

    From the moment when the Elton John character in the movie “Rocketman” burst into its opening scene dressed as a flamboyant demon on his way to an addiction rehabilitation session, the game was on. Here was yet another film about a person gifted with a meteoric rise to stardom finding coke, booze and a hedonistic lifestyle that led directly to a destructive crash into the abyss. Ultimately, these stories end in total disaster (“A Star is Born”, “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Judy”) but this one resulted

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2019

    PART ONE - OVERTURE  I have a disclaimer at the outset. I’m not a fan of the races - be they horses or motors of any kind. Once the final siren sounds on the football season, I find the month or so that follows and corresponds roughly with the Spring Racing Carnival to be the most boring time of the year for sports fans. You turn on the radio and you’re confronted by the monotonous drone of a self-proclaimed racing expert or by the nasally twang of an ex-jockey banging on about the equine p

    PART 1 - IT’S A LITTLE MORE COMPLICATED THIS TIME This year’s free agency, trade and draft period will see the usual drama and upheaval as the AFL’s 18 clubs seek to better their lists in order to challenge for finals and possibly premiership honours. Long before the final siren sounded on the season just over a week ago, the maneuvering was under way with player agents and clubs discussing possible player movements and in some cases, deals had already been done.  Yesterday, the r

    HOW FAR SOUTH? by George on the Outer

    It was appropriate that Melbourne was playing its last game of season 2019 in Hobart.  After all, how much further south could the team go? And much as it has done in many of the previous 22 games, the side managed to extract a loss from a winning position by simply giving the ball back to the opposition time and time again. In fact, they gave it back to the opposition to the tune of 53 points from turnovers while, by way of contrast North Melbourne contributed  only 17 points to their oppo
