GAMEDAY - Round 10

Recommended Posts

Here we go.

If we had of set a bench mark for our last 4 weeks I think 75 goals, 14 quarters won in a row and 3rd on the ladder would have been about the best we could hope for.

To those who say we played easy teams, tell that to Hawthorn and Geelong last week.

These next 3 games are vitally important, and I for one have a good feeling.

Dees by 35 points, McDonald BOG (hedging my bets a little bit there is two of them 😈)

Our run of big scores will continue, Dees by 65 points. Oliver with a cheeky 36 disposals and a goal.

I'm with Ethan and Josh - bitterly confident.

Big game - big win followed by a disgusting celebration at Romsey Manor!

Not to get ahead but with a Demon win and a Hawks win over the Eagles, we would be 1 game from top spot.

I'll happily settle on a win of any proportions, but I have a very pleasant game-day feeling that we will have won 18 quarters on the trot by the end of the round.  That's not 100% unreasonable, is it?

Think we will get the job done. Huge game to keep in touch with the top 4 & cement inside the 8. Biggest game this clubs played in for many years, free to air & many eyes watching. Time to show we are the real deal.

So I have a kiddie matinee show thingo I have to attend,  and if I get caught on the phone by Mrs Naked I’m dead meat.  So I will be blind to probably the first half at least, unless I can a few dunny runs.

Adelaide play a tough contested brand of ball.  We have to serve it straight back.  Max will dominate Jacobs, their midfield will ruck to him.  Need to win the midfield, and shut down their HB run.  And keep Eddie quiet.

1 goal per quarter better, plus a late surge sees us home by 35 points.

I will watch the replay later.

Absolutely.  Adelaide even with a bunch of guns out are a very good team.

A 1 win point will be just fine thanks.

Along with the video on the MFC website sounds like good things are happening with our Central Australian Academy and the Red Tails side. 

On both a travel and footy fronts it would be good if we could keep the Alice Springs game but ditch the Darwin game.

I'll begrudingly support a 0.0.3 to 0.0.2 win so we keep our percentage going up.

I have to attend my mother in laws birthday gathering this afternoon....oh what fun!  Can’t decide if this is a line in the sand, seizing the moment, stamping our authority or no turning back game. This is also the first of 3 payback games owing to atone for last seasons round 23 debacle.

I have a feeling we'll lose by 8 goals sorry

I was more confident early in the week but I have a feeling the game will be a repeat of our last match against them in the top end. Even with 5 big outs I think they will be too strong for us. Fingers crossed I'm wrong.

The Hawks and Tigers games are still fresh enough in my memory to be too confident about this one. But if we do win then I will believe we are the real deal.

Today is the day, Go Dees!!!

Yes they were real easy, everyone points out how we have not beaten anyone good, pointing to the big lose against hawthorn, but 2 of our wins those teams smashed hawthorn. Hawks were really smashed by Brisbane that was  embarrassing, just  imagine if Brisbane beat us by 10 goals, everyone would be asking for Goodwin's head, and writing up that we are doomed. The Hawks will lose this weekend by 10 goals.

Thoughts.

  • We were playing with a large number of players out of form at the start of the year and were doing ok.
  • Hawthorn game showed that we were out of form and gave us a reality check
  • We were mentally under the pump in the Richmond game with the aftermath of the Hawks game and were not on our game
  • 4 games against easy opponents, but we now have a number of players who are back in form.
  • This one is ours for the taking. They have a large number of players out and we are in red hot form. Lets do this!

    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

    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
