Trengove signs

If we thought he was so good, why were we happy to unload him to Richmond?

Roos was looking for draft picks, with the idea being that we were hoping to package a couple of first rounders together to lure Dangerfield to the club.  I'm sure we tested the waters with a number of players, and when Richmond showed interest, we bit.

HE IS SLOWWWW, the modern game has past him by! 

What position will he play and whose spot will he take?? 

Eh?

Perhaps he could develop into a role like Luke Hodge floating around half back, reading the play to intercept in a good side where you have some time and space.  Hodge I reckon this year is slower than Trenners but he has re-signed for next season. I think there is still a chance for Trenners to play a role where he can play to his strengths and hopefully with a full preseason and some expert guidance regain some speed. If you are not injured how do you lose speed at 25, you should be able to regain it surely if fit.

Great points  -  I think they help put this issue in perspective.

Sometimes it goes beyond the on-field. The club's retainment of Trengove speaks of the importance of making decisions which also impact the fabric of the club. We got it wrong with James McDonald et al and it set the club back a long way. There's no denying it. Whilst there's every chance Trengove could falter, the key thing, for mine, is how we treat a respected and courageous clubman. It's the right decision.

What should Trenners work on to improve over summer? What are his current weaknesses as well as strengths? What value can he bring to the team in terms of position needs, experience and skills? This is fair and reasonable to discuss, I would've thought, without being shouted down.

I believe if he cannot improve his speed he will struggle to get games. I really hope our fitness guys can work on this. To our medico posters (Webber), it possible to improve speed, esp after his setbacks? His tank will certainly improve with another preseason. 

I'm pleased the club has given him another year. Trenners will certainly leave no stone unturned in his efforts to succeed.

Probably just moi, but I'd offer Boomer a 2 year contract with this in mind.

As others have mentioned, a part time sprint coach should be the go here.

Trenners should even be able tio use connections through his sister to find someone appropriate.

That and penetration in his kicking.

His footy smarts, toughnes,  disposal and marking ability are all still there.

Why?? Why a Troll??? Because I have a very valid opinion?? 

People like you are the reason that this club still is without a premiership 50 years down the track!

A PART TIME SPRINT COACH?? YOU ARE IN NODDY LAND! You can't develop pace< especially when you were never quick to start with!

Sentiment? Bah I repeat whose spot will he take?? 

Time to take a hard nosed approach to this footy club! Clayton Oliver gets dropped just so he can play at Casey?? Cmon

He should be in the team

WE NEED HIS UNCOMPRIMISING ATTACK ON THE FOOTY!

Cmon lighweight!

Whose place will Jack Tengove replace in 2017??

I ask the same question again if you are not injured how do you lose speed at 25? Most people say he was fast enough at 20, yes he had the foot problem in between but what is it now? He should be mobile enough now to compete.

McDonald peaked at 34.

Which didn't make the premeditated decision to delist him look any better.

He was average for a long time before he got the Khyber.

Disagree, Junior Mac was a sensational player, still quick,when shafted  and a victim of some shizen powerplays between senior club figures!

A much better player than Jack Trengove, and deserved better!

He was good when we cut him but he was lucky to ever even make skipper tbh.

let alone play for so long.

We made the call maybe a year early but tuff [censored].

    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

    COOKED by The Oracle

    I can vividly remember when the Demons ventured onto Blundstone Arena for the first time in early 2016 only to lose to the Kangaroos by 20.11.131 to 21.10.136.    Melbourne was then a team on the up and up: young, enthusiastic and bold. It gave up a huge quarter time deficit after kicking against a strong wind but made that up by half time and fell dramatically short after an exciting high scoring affair.  The team lost no fans that day - they were willing to take the game on and attac

    HELP by KC rom Casey

    The Casey Demons finished off their home and away season against Frankston at Skybus Stadium on Sunday with a narrow, unconvincing 6-point victory that left the door slightly open for a top eight berth when the VFL finals begin in a fortnight’s time. While sunny skies prevailed over Frankston in the morning, the skies became overcast by noon and heavy waves pounded the bay nearby as the rains came in to greet the players as the game started. And conditions stayed dark and dreary for the rem

    THANKS BUT NO THANKS by George on the Outer

    Thanks, but no thanks! In a round where the club was supposed to thank their fans for the support during the year, the Melbourne Football Club chose to do otherwise with a 53 point loss to a team that sat 15th on the ladder.  Don’t give us cheap jumpers that can’t be sold in the Demon shop.  Don’t give us vouchers to shop there, give us something on the field, which is why we come to the football in the first place. It was a disgraceful performance, which started with a disgracefu

    SLEEP OUT AT THE MCG by The Oracle

    Around about 12 months ago Melbourne and Sydney fought out an epic battle between two top eight teams fighting for the best possible ladder position in the lead up to the finals. The Swans triumphed by 9 points at the MCG after the Demons came back from five goals down at three quarter time. But for its poor kicking for goal, Melbourne might well have won the game and finished in the top four. Who knows what might then have happened for the club in September? As a consequence, the person re

    A LITTLE RAY OF SUNSHINE by KC from Casey

    Two clubs that have been hard hit by injury recently took part in a dour battle under dark clouds and, with intermittent showers falling, it wasn’t a pretty game at Victoria Park on Sunday. Despite all that, the Casey Demons added a little ray of sunshine to their day to get the job done over a "traditional" rival with a 15 point victory over Collingwood VFL that breathed life back into their season. There were a few highlights at the ground that in past days has seen many titanic batt

    THE RETRO ROUND by George on the Outer

    We have seen it all before… Yes, a wonderful idea to showcase what used to be in football.  Big crowds, umpires who knew how to apply the rules and not opinions, high marks, skilful players. But for the Melbourne supporters their retro is what it has been like for the past 10 years. Losing games, end on end, year after year.  Opportunities squandered in front of goal. VFL standard players running around at the MCG. Just more of the same, and the game against Collingwood was no ex

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    Thanks to Demonlanders for their input into this week’s preview. Ralphius Maximus is short and bittersweet: We'll crack in at the bounce to create a contest, win our share of the ball, butcher the forward movement and get scored on easily from the intercepts. Not that hard to predict. Big Demon says: Unfortunately Collingwood will win because they have a lot more to play for. We will be good in parts but really the season is well over so we will have to put up with those bell

    WHAT, NO BLOOD? by George on the Outer

    The feeling when turning up to the MCG on a Saturday night to play a top four side in Richmond, while the Melbourne sits cemented in close proximity to the bottom of the table is like attending the Colosseum in Ancient Roman times. The expectation is that a bloodbath is about to occur. There are 100,000 Richmond members and 50,000 Melbourne members, and despite the fact that it turned out to be a wet night after half-time, a crowd of only 37K bothered to turn up. That should never have happ

    A MAN’S ERRAND by KC from Casey

    A young and undermanned Casey Demons were sent out on Saturday to the Swinburne Centre in the shadows of the MCG on a man’s errand against a very experienced Richmond VFL combination which is the clear ladder leader and fielded no less than 18 AFL listed players. It was expected to be a rout and the Tigers made easy work of it in the early stages when they held a 26 point lead by quarter time. To their credit however, the Demons weathered the storm and kept their opponents within the range

    THAT’S FOOTBALL by Whispering Jack

    As the season rolls on towards the finals and the football world witnesses the aftermath of the sacking of the league’s unsuccessful coaches, it’s almost  inevitable that the spotlight will turn firmly upon the complete and utter failure of season 2019 - the Melbourne Football Club.  For a team that finished in fourth place last year and was heavily touted as a premiership contender, the fall from grace has been dramatic. As things stand, the Demons look certain to finish 13 places down on

    THE MOMENT OF TRUTH IS COMING by KC from Casey

    At half time in Sunday’s game at Trevor Barker Beach Oval, things weren’t looking too flash for the flailing finals prospects of the Casey Demons. Key forward Sam Weideman had suffered a concussion in his first contest and, with a few exceptions, the team was playing like a rabble rather than a finals contender. The Demons were 23 points in arrears to the Zebras and their season was headed towards oblivion. It was the skipper Mitch White who spurred his team on by word and by deed - he fini
