WELCOME TO THE MELBOURNE FOOTBALL CLUB - STEVEN MAY



Recommended Posts

Look he just needs to tone down the aggression in the sense we don't want him getting suspended all the time. But he will be a great addition to our backline. 

He is a mature player who can hold his own down back. 

He was on that trade talk show on ch9 last night and said what stood out was goodwin talking to him about what Melbourne and the coaching group can do for his game personally and for him. Said that's what he was most impressed with. 

Anyway I look forward to see him do his stuff next year.

A bit of banter between May and Lynch at a dinner the other night. From the AFL site.  "We went out for dinner the other night on the Gold Coast," May said. "We were talking about the Anzac

I have it on good authority that our coach and one of our senior players had drinks/dinner with May last night.

It's worth re-iterating that Steven May chose MFC over offers from Collingwood and Hawthorn who also made finals this year - really who would've thought that even 2 years ago? And he cited the ke

Heres the interview.

 

Simon Goodwin needs to write a book, so I can learn first hand from the master. What an effing legend.

BTW - welcome to the club Mr May. You've carried yourself beautifully through this period and I can't wait to see you contribute to what will be the meanest defence in the league coupled with the highest scoring forward line. I'm changing my username to Big Kev. I'm excited.

I vaguely remember roosu saying something similar in his meeting with goody, it was mostly about culture and so on rather than just football. I think we are onto a winner with goody

Being from GCS I don't know much about him but after watching his highlights reel he looks a tough customer. Would look to be good addition.

He goes ok. Has a big appetite for the game...snacks on forwards I'm told :)

The MFC welcomes a new indigenous player to the fold.

 I just hope that when he makes his debut for the club that we do better than Gold Coast on his debut with them - it was the game against Essendon at the Docklands when the Bombers kicked 15.4.94 to 0.1.1 in the first quarter.

Helps when you're on the good stuff, mate.

He has played on the forward line before so if one of our KPF go down he is an option to replace them since our KPB stocks are plentiful.

I reckon the idea of putting May forward is akin to putting Tom McDonald back. It's not going to happen. Particularly, as we've just paid an early first rounder for him to strengthen our defence. He's a better player than OMac or Frost, so he's already in before them.

There's no doubt May would have taken notice of the way we play footy and part of the attraction in coming to us would be to play alongside some the other tough and uncompromising types we have on our list. 

Anyone watching us against Geelong and the way our youngsters made Selwood, Ablett and Dangerfield earn every touch would have been impressed. None of our young guys back away from heat. 

May and Pruess will not only make us walk even taller, but they'll walk taller themselves. 

We now have the toughest side in the comp. Of that I'm sure and oppo sides won't like it.

I like this line in the MFC release just emailed to me:

"The addition of Kolodjashnij will enhance Melbourne’s transition play from the backline, while defender May is one the biggest names switching clubs this off-season."

I haven't checked, but I suspect Kolodjashnij will have been the biggest name, while May will likely have been the shortest.

...and he can get it, run fast and kick it well 'steve', that's got to be a good thing.

We not only get May and Pruess but also Oliver with 2 new shoulders.

I thought the odd tackle was slipping toward the end of the season.

At least now Viney has some he can do tackling drills with.

Could be brutal. New club rule. No killing teammates at training.

I have to admit to not seeing a lot of May playing. Watching the $un$ play was never high on my list of stuff to do. 

He is a seriously big unit who can take a mark and hit a target. 

The fact we have no picks in the 1st round of the draft (yet) does concern me, so these 2 from the $un$ simply must be high class. 

Fingers Crossed...

Love seeing a rough tough mean looking head in Demon colours. 

I love tough guys Ernest. We have had so few over the years. We were cream puffs for a long time  AVB at one end and May at the other. No bruise free football for these guys.

I've not noticed Pig take any backward steps either.

We might scare a few teams with our list. Another summer in the gym... Won't be too many boys out on the paddock ;)

    WASH, RINSE, SPIN, REPEAT! by George On The Outer

    Although the Demons got over the line in their must win final round game against the hapless Bombers, they ensured it was Groundhog Day for their supporters who well remember what happened three years ago (although, this time they at least enjoyed the success of victory). Melbourne had its customary start dominating play and having plenty of chances in front of goal, only to find itself down on the scoreboard at the first change. Inaccurate kicking, particularly from set shots would have pu

    THE LUCK OF THE DRAW by Whispering Jack

    The long awaited clash between Melbourne and Essendon is almost upon us. Thirty-seven rounds of AFL football have passed by since the two clubs met on a balmy early April night last year in a game that produced a high scoring shootout at the MCG with the Bombers prevailing by 18 points. It was their only meeting for 2019 and happened at a time when the pandemic was something on the far distant horizon. Several months later when the 2019 season ended, the AFL issued the first of its fixtures

    THERE’S STILL A HEARTBEAT by George on the Outer

    When bottom side Adelaide scrapped together a win over the Giants last week, a tiny glimmer of hope opened up for the Demons’ finals chances. The patient was in intensive care but not quite finished — there was a faint pulse, a heart beating ever so slightly but was it enough when two more wins and other results were needed to fall their way? The first step was the resuscitation of a team that had lost its last two matches against sides then sitting fifteenth and sixteenth on the ladder. On

    THE FINAL HUMILIATION by The Oracle

    On Sunday, the Melbourne Football Club that won three consecutive games by in excess of 50 points last month returns to the Gabba, the scene of the last of those victories which was a 56 point drubbing of Collingwood. The Demons got off to a good start and won every quarter with a ruthless and powerful brand of football. They kicked 16 goals that day, their accuracy in front of goal a tribute to the skills the put on display throughout the afternoon and evening. In the four matches playe

    GIVEN THE OLD HEAVE HO’ by George on the Outer

    Fremantle gave Melbourne the old heave ho’ from playing finals in 2020, in conditions that the Demons yet again failed to handle.   With the whole season on the line and the need to win to stay in contention for finals, what the fans saw was much the same as they have been witnessing so many times before — a complete debacle and capitulation against a side that sat 15th on the ladder before the game.     Promises made after the loss to the 16th placed Sydney Swans were rendered h

    GETTING THE HEAVE HO by Bananabender

    The ute barely made it up to Cairns in time for us to check into the motel, fling a cane toad out the bathroom. and head over to Cazaly’s Stadium where we took up our position on the wing. There, we saw a completely different Melbourne to the one we watched on the screen only a few nights earlier from Alice Springs. This lot wore similar colours and Maxy dominated the ruck but the similarities ended there - the Demons were simply dreadful against the Swans. They started sluggishly, were spe

    A CLANGER IN CAIRNS by George on the Outer

    Having fought back into finals contention, the Demons had it all before them when facing a lowly Sydney in Cairns.  But in typical Melbourne fashion, they threw away the opportunity to cement their spot in the eight with a clanger of a game.  Right from the start, there was little to enthuse from the Melbourne players, who appeared to think that they only had to turn up, enjoy the North Queensland sun, and take away the four points.  Compared with the furious ground wide pressure of the

    TEN MINUTES LATE by Whispering Jack

    The late Norm Smith, who played in four Melbourne premierships and coached another six, was a strong disciplinarian. Known as the Red Fox for his auburn hair and his cunning, Smith was a man of a different age to the here and now. Born during the Great War, he survived the Spanish Flu Pandemic, grew up in depression times, played mostly through the Second World War and its aftermath and coached in a period of rebuilding and recovery to a time of prosperity. Smith’s success was built on team

    SAINTS HELL IN DEES HEAVEN by GOTO

    The last of this year’s indigenous games was played in the red heart of the country and could well have determined Melbourne’s finals aspirations but it was St Kilda that had its top four hopes dashed after a nail-biting finish in Alice Springs which saw them unceremoniously marched out of the position in football heaven occupied by them for much of this season. It all came down in the end to a goal-line decision as to whether a freakish shot by Christian Petracca was touched and the goal u

    DO OR DIE by The Oracle

    Melbourne is, not for the first time, paying for lapses in matches whereby the club leaks multiple goals without answer and which usually cost the club in those all-important eight point games as it did last week against the Western Bulldogs which replaced the Demons in the AFL top eight. And this week, they come up against a team that reputedly plays in the same mode as the Bulldogs but has been able to prevail over better opponents than Melbourne. It’s not that the Demons are out of form

    GIVE THE DOGS A BONE by George on the Outer

    The winner of the game is in the top eight and the loser out. Had Melbourne won, it would have consigned the Bulldogs season to the scrapheap given their remaining fixture which still includes a bye. The Demons led at half-time but they gave the Dogs a bone which was willingly accepted — they notched 6 goals in the third quarter and dumped the Demons out of the eight. This game simply saw all the bad habits return for Melbourne players.  When they serve up dinky kicks, dinky handballs, litt

    FRENZY by Whispering Jack

    The Melbourne Football Club should hand out an award to the person who came up with the concept of the 20 day football frenzy the football world experienced from Round 9 to the completion of Round 12 on Monday. When the AFL fixture was moved into a state of perpetual motion, things changed so quickly that it was difficult to fathom exactly what was happening to the competition but the Demons have been one of the beneficiaries to date. The flogging the team received at the hands of Port Adel
