MATCH PREVIEW AND TEAM SELECTION - Round 16

Recommended Posts

Let's dream for a minute.

Let's imagine Trenners having a blinder on Sunday thereby cementing his place at least for the next three weeks or so. In four weeks time Angus Brayshaw returns and does something similar. 

 

With that scenario, come finals time, with the rest of our injury list back as well, we would be unbeatable! Two additional top five picks to our squad, and when fit exquisitely talented footballers. Exciting possibilities.

Well we can dream, but not an impossible one IMHO. 

Go Dees!!

Liam Jones will need to be more accountable with Marchbank out and Weitering and Ploughman suffering in game injuries last week.  I doubt Jones will be able to run free all day with our talls Jesse, Tom and Cam or Max running around up forward.

The Carlton defence also need to deal with Garlett and an inform Hannan at the feet or our tall guys.  

If we can keep up the forward pressure and keep the ball in our half it will make life a lot harder for their defence and a lot easier for our undermanned midfield. 

Also, Ed Curnow is still out and their midfield isn't as good without him.  Murphy and Gibbs will need to work harder.

Demons to win.

love the bloke. first year took a really non footballing female Lions supporter friend of my wife (and my non footballing wife) to the Dees lions game at th G in his first year. - He was Mr Everywhere - unbelievable game from a first year bloke. The girls only real football comment was who is that number 9 kid he's amazing! Surely he's something to give in a Sam Mitchell type centreman role especially while we're missing our A graders

I remember that night!! 

Sculldog and Trenners ran amok . I was So full of optimism that we were going somewhere. 

Who woulda thought it would take till now - a Paul Roos Peter Jackson rebuild later , the end of false dawns . 

I would be also be stoked  see Trenners regain some power in his legs to make it as a regular again It would be huge for the club .

I'll be attending training this morning, hope to see a few from the Demonland team down there.

The inclusion of Jesse and Jeffy has definitely lifted the mood around the place.

Yeah saw that last night and thought they had forgotten to add 3 players ?

Kent needs to lift 90% over what he had done since last year's tigers game. He had been pretty poor.

I don't care what else happens, just don't send Vince to Cripps !!!!  I went to that tragic Melbourne vs Carlton match late last year and looked at who was standing next to Cripps. When I saw Bernie go to him, I thought...... ok that's the end of Cripps.  Well, as we know, Cripps had an absolute blinder and Bernie was unsighted.  Let's not have a repeat of that.

A report on how Frost trains would be appreciated.  Had hammy issues during last week's game.  Yes, played the game out, but given how current state with soft tissue injuries, I'd be surprised if they risked Frosty.

Could be a simple Frost out, TMac to CHB, Weed comes in.

Arrived at training a short time ago and all of the MFC listed players are participating. No sign of any injured players present.

Players going through the warm up at the moment. 

Frost is involved but I did notice him approach a doctor and point to his hamstring/buttock area. After a two minute consultation Frost is back out there.

Thanks mate.  Just can't see them risking him this week, especially with bigger forwards to contend with next week.

As has been the key to our success this year, it's all about the midfield. We are 3 of our best starting 4 down. Spells trouble, I fear.

Players were split into 3 of four groups for some short sharp ball movement type of drills.

Hard to gauge which of the extended bench will play as all are here and participating but one thing I noticed is Trengove is training in a group that only consists of White and Maynard.

I mean its really not a bad side is it? We are just a couple of midfielders down and Wattsy. There are a lot more options for moves on gameday as well. Gawn and Hogan wondering around down forward will be ok wont it......its only Carlton after all.

I find the selection of Weideman to be the most interesting. Until the above poster mentioned the possibility that Frost might not play, I had thought Weideman's selection could only mean one of two things. Either Hogan is still doubtful or (my preferred option) the club is telling Hogan he's under no pressure to make himself available. 

Assuming Frost and all others in the named starting 18 play, I hope the bench includes Trengove, JKH and any two out of Stretch, Smith and Wagner,

I also hope that JKH and Neil-Bullen play full games on ball. That's where they've played their best football at Casey and neither have done particularly well as small forwards in the past. And I'd like Melksham to stick like glue to Docherty.

24 players now involved in a half ground match simulation, Jesse looking mobile as ever along with Jeffy. Gus involved in this drill also. Weed and Trengove not in this drill which leaves me thinking Smith, Kent, Wagner, Stretch and JKH fighting for the final four spots.

Once again Jesse looking really sharp and focused!!!

Hogan, T Mac and Pedersen contesting one on one marking contests with Rawlings with each winning their fair share. Looks like we might go with 3 tall forwards and one of Tmac and Pedders to relieve Max.

Split into respective positions now.

Max and Pedders contesting ruck battles with the midfield trying to win the ball in a clearance type of drill. Hannan, Vince, Oliver, Trac, Stretch, Lewis, Melksham, JKH and Harmes make up that drill.

Hunt and Hibberd working on their own as this looks a link up type of drill.

Tmac, Kent, Hogan, Garlett and ANB are the forwards.

Frost, Wagner, Smith, Jetta and Oscar the defence.

One would imagine that Jesse is just raring to go full pace....lots of lost time to make up , and needs to show Carlscum that his footy speaks.  

No pressure, Jesse, but I am hoping for a huge game.

    RED AND BLUEPRINT 2019 by Whispering Jack

    The rusty red of the McDonnell Ranges and the blue skies above them provided the perfect backdrop that summed up everything about the Melbourne Football Club’s 2019 season. It set out the perfect red and blueprint for the club’s horror year. The club’s previous season was one of great promise but it ended in a calamitous way in Perth with an 11 goal defeat at the hands of the ultimate premiership side, the West Coast Eagles in a game where the Demons’ first goal came early in the third quar

    WINDY DAY FOOTY by KC from Casey

    Windy day footy has always been the domain of those who play the game hard: on days when the breeze gusts all over the place and the ground has been sodden by recent rains, the player needs to get all aspects of his game together and be hard of body and mind, to concentrate and attack the football. The Casey Demons came out on their own deck in such conditions and under a mainly sunny sky and gave it a crack for half a game but they lost sight of the fundamentals of playing hard in difficul

    TRECIMATED by George on the Outer

    A little more than two months have passed since Melbourne met and came close to beating the reigning premier West Coast in the preliminary final replay over in the West. At the time, the Demons had three wins on the board and now, nine rounds later and going into this week’s match, they have managed to add a paltry two more wins to the ledger.  The Eagles, in contrast, have moved to within percentage of second spot on the ladder despite their loss at home this week against Collingwood.

    SAME STORY, DIFFERENT SONG by George on the Outer

    Melbourne was still suffering from the same old story - a lack of AFL capable players from which to choose at the selection table - and the Western Bulldogs got to sing their song again. But wait, that wasn’t the Doggie’s song we’ve been hearing for the last 30 years, it was some other concoction and no-one knew the words to it but whatever it was, they got to mumble it with gusto after a huge 8 point win! The sad thing is that the Bulldogs (or Footscray or whatever they choose to call

    DOGGED by KC from Casey

    On Sunday, the Casey Demons met the Footscray VFL under the roof at the same venue where their nemesis took them down in the 2017 grand final and the result left them with the same feeling of disappointment - this time with a seven point defeat that ended the club’s four game winning streak and made things a lot harder in terms of playing in this year’s final series.   And, as has so often happened this year, the Demons let the game get away from them with but failing to take advantage of th

    BARKING MAD by The Oracle

    There was so much hype proliferating about Melbourne’s prospects for season 2019 a mere four months ago, that one could be forgiven for thinking anyone contemplating the prospect of a bottom four finish for the Demons at the time was barking mad. That however, is the prospect that they face at the moment and a loss to the Bulldogs on Sunday would make it a virtual certainty.  The club’s downward spiral after several years of moving steadily on an upward trajectory has been well documented i

    THE MELBOURNE WAY by George on the Outer

    Much has been made by the coaching staff of playing a “Melbourne way” style of play. The nail-biting finish by the Demons in the dying minute of the game could not have been any more the case in point.   Leading by a game-high 38 points late in the third quarter, and by five goals at the final change, this should have been the catalyst for a romp home to an easy win.   But that is not the “Melbourne way” and the supporters, especially those with a severe case of MFCSS (aka intense inse

    PINK AND BLUE CAN’T KICK TRUE by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons took on the Northern Blues at home on Saturday  in a game that was crucial in terms of their hopes for September and they took away the valuable four points on offer after some worrying moments. Most of those worries were self-inflicted as a result of some shocking inaccuracy in front of goal, sloppiness in play and a little bit of indiscipline that all combined to make the game a lot closer than it should have been. The final scoreboard showed the Demons winning the P

    GO FIGURE by Sam the Stats Man

    In May last year, a rampant Melbourne side demolished Carlton by 109 points at the MCG. The Demons did as they pleased and ran rings against a young, abysmal Blues combination. The Dees led in virtually every key performance indicator, notably entering the inside 50 metre mark 63 times to 33 and the superiority of their attack was highlighted by a 74% shooting accuracy rate (to 47%).  A little more than a year later the two sides face each other for the first time since that rout and the ta

    GORN AT THE GABBA by George on The Outer

    With Melbourne leading the Brisbane Lions in the second term, and the game in the balance, a Max Gawn ankle injury signalled that the Demons were as good as gorrnnn for the match. Without a suitable 2nd ruck and (once again) forced to use either Tom McDonald, Tim Smith or Sam Weidemann in the ruck the Demons found themselves without a forward line that could kick a winning score. Not that anything really changed, as the forward line has been completely dysfunctional all season and one

    GAMBIT by KC from Casey

    The opening gambit of Saturday afternoon’s game told us everything about who would be its main players and who would come out on top. The Casey Demons were eager to turn the tables on the Box Hill Hawks who beat them in last year’s grand final and then gave them a first up mauling at City Oval, Box Hill. Kicking with the aid of a strong breeze in the opening term, Braydon Preuss’ first hit out went straight to the diminutive Jay Kennedy Harris who pounced with a 70 metre shot at goal that sailed

    MURDER BY NUMBERS by Sam the Stats Man

    The respective ladder positions of this week’s combatants tell the story of one side on the rise and the other in steep decline. Since their most recent meeting which took place early last year, the Dees and the Lions have changed positions. They are opposed to each again on the former’s home turf with the locals in fine fettle after blowing St Kilda off the park at Marvel Stadium.  The Lions’ home ground advantage has been a major consideration so far this year. They have won five out of s
