My 3 word player analysis V North Melbourne

Recommended Posts

Jones - great second quarter

Viney - unsighted when needed

Salem - was always composed

Watts - hugely disappointing again

Petracca - believed his publicity 

Lewis - provided great direction 

Tyson - most overrated footballer 

Oliver - prolific but wasteful

Hibbert - was outstanding again

Kent - waste of space

Frost - iffy but important 

Hannan - our only forward

Pedersen - no heroics today

Vince - had no influence 

T.McDonald - versatile but limited

Weideman - probably wasn't playing

O.McDonald  - never inspired confidence 

Hunt - obviously still suffering

Bugg - regularly wasted chance

Garlett - just a spectator 

Jetta - reliable and effective

Wagner - was he playing?

  • Bit hard on Pedersen- against AA Ruckman
  • Tyson : Better today
  • Hannan : Best game/ Competitive
  • OMac/Frosty: Learning . Some great efforts by both.
  • TMac : Has enormous responsibilities
  • Watts : Needs to impose more but efficient when ball in hand
  • Jetta : Just as well we have got him
  • Midfield : Forwards need better delivery
  • Forwards:Somtimes you make your own luck
  • Defenders: "Lace outs" are hard to stop
  • Onballers: Hard day at office
  • "Ruckmen": He is BIG!!!/and can play/Max is better

We stuffed around with the ball in the first quarter, then went more direct in the second, only to revert back to the same bull[censored] in the third.

Dumb football and dumb coaching all round. Starting McDonald forward was a big mistake, just because it worked last week doesn't mean it always will.

Pedo i thought did a fantastic job, so a bit harsh on him Joeboy. A pity he only had a couple more that gave their all for the entire match.

 

Kent was pathetic, he doesn't get enough of it to be a mid, yet cannot apply defensive pressure in the forward half. He is a man of no position. Bring in Harmes for him next week.

Weideman is nowhere near the quality of an AFL player yet (still needs to develop a tonne, and find a spine), stick him at Casey for the rest of the year, as he lacks both the required skill and appetite AFL requires.

OMAC has no good games, he either has bad one's or ok one's. He gave away 4 free kicks today (all of which were there) and 6 clangers, so he is either clueless or just a stupid footballer. You don't build backlines around these types of player's. With the likes of TMAC, OMAC and Frost as our KPD's, we probably have one of the worst defences in the league. Lever can't get here quick enough.

Jeffy through in one of his classic 'bad' performances today. He has more better days than bad days, but his bad days really are bad.

Watts, Salem, Petracca, Wagner (he's never going to be an AFL quality player - so why bother), Vince and Hunt were all below par.

Hard to win when more than half your team put in less than average performances. Dees caught drinking their own bathwater again.

He also needs to work on motivating the team. If they continue not to listen, make changes.

Frost could get a gig in a premiership side. Have a look at all of the premiership players running around in Hawthorn jumpers right now.

Motivation needs to come from within.  A team that needs motivation week in week out; has a huge problem.

You must have a handful of negatives about Tyson that you just slot in every week, regardless of his performance.

What does Tyson have to do for you to give him some credit? granted struggled early on but in recent weeks has started to find his legs again and getting into some space. if the chief concern is still disposal efficiency then you need to have a closer look - 4th in total disposals, 5th in average disposals and while his efficiency is down, Hunt has 40 less touches at 2% better efficiency. he's doing the job Goody and the coaches are asking of him, yes we'd all like a bit more out of him, but he's a massive reason we bat so deep in the midfield.

agree with your notations: 

Frankly it is laughable that a  Team can come out and thrash Adelaide yet play so poorly again against Nth Melbourne. 

At the start of the year I held out for more hope than this at week 9

    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

    CHANGES 2019 by The Oracle

    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

    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
