did someone say on another thread (gaff maybe?) that we would be keen on mcgovern. two questions. which mcgovern? and, was it that he is available and we SHOULD be interested or that we ARE interested? i can't see where either would fit into our team as is..

I’d look at Freos Sean Darcy for a backup/team ruck for Gawn.

20 yo

201cm

111kgs

From Geelong Falcons and has played 8 games averaging 34 HOs per game 

thoughts?

That's the exact reason we don't know how good he could he could be. He was a relatively  high draft pick. Putting him on a rookie list won't hurt and if he's still injured all of next year delist him.

Watch list- Sloane, Gaff, Mackay

interested in - Wright (Suns), Darcy (Freo) Campbell (Dogs).  Backup rucks behind Gawn but all are also forward capable. 

Speed is also in focus. Dahlhaus?

Delistings probables - Mckenna, Vandenburg, Johnstone

Delistings possibles- JKH, Kent, Pedersen, King,  Bugg, Filipivic (r)

trade possibilities  - Frost, Tyson

Sloane is too old for our list. Gaff is what we need, Mackay is what we don't need.

I don't think we need a back up ruckman, Weideman will do a good enough job until youngsters like King, Filipovic and Bradtke step up.

Dahlhaus hasn't had a kick for 2 years damaged goods.

Has a bit of weight to lose but I thought he looked pretty promising last season. Definitely wouldn’t be against this.

Probably Buckley’s as he’d be the next great hope after Sandi?

Any backup for Gawn, has to be a powerful mark, around the ground, and packs.

His backup, has to have lots of marking stats, this should be the primary stat, at an young age.  The hitouts will come with strength, but the marking ability is there, or not there.

 

Hitouts are overrated, unless they are in our players hands directly,,, and then the opposition will just hunt our Mids closely.  We have to get the clearances, and we have to control the flow of the game, around the wings and flanks, with marking ability, and top kicking.

Mitch McGovern from Adelaide. One of the best contested marks in the comp, still only 23.

If we added him to Gawn, Hogan, T Mac, Fritsch and Lever..   our marking power would be absurd.

I think he’s a gun and Freo wouldn’t part with him easily.  If he’s wanting to come home though, I’d be very happy to see us pursue him.

I'd have a dip at Braydon Preuss, but he may want the number 1 ruck role which a club like Geelong may offer him.  Not sure he would be happy playing second fiddle to Gawn like he is to Goldy.

The ruck situation is a worry, with both of our developing or 'project' ruckmen being on the 'could go either way' list.

Hopefully there's some unsighted potential there and we can keep at least one of them on and look to trade in a mature ruck to help out.

It's looking very thin below Gawn and we need King or Filipovic to show something in the second half of the season.

we've got bradtke next year 😈

I would like to see McKenna at VFL level first before putting a line though him. He hasn't really played so he is a massive unknown.

yeah, i know who he is. right.. he'd cost a mint though and i think we're still needing 2-3 mids. ah whatever, see how it plays.

I could not disagree more. Vanders has had a couple of reasonable games in an injury crippled career. He's soooooo far away from 100% it's very doubtful he will play seniors this year, maybe not again. Brayshaw was a star before his concussion issues (remember his first game with 9 tackles?) And has made a sensational comeback to the extent that he would surely be near the top of the target list for Freo and WCE to join his brothers. He most certainly has a couple of 3 vote Brownlow games this year.

Keep Vanders and get rid of Gus? Crazy talk.

Vanders has gonads the size of a football and Does the hard stuff, seriously the Brownlow goes is your idea of quality? Mathews, Carey and Ablett snr how how many of these medals between them?

Preuss or Lycett, Lobb,...

 

Rory Lobb, already mature,,, in a team that has gone backwards this year.

He has the best marking average over his career, of these 3 rucks.
Lobb an Lycett are ready to roll, to fill in Now. 

I think strong marking and big numbers of marks, is the key.  the rest can follow, if you will.  These types can ruck, or be dangerous forward.

players of interest ? for our side.

Lachie Whitfield.

Matt Buntine.

So just to get this straight.... you'd keep a guy that's played a handful of senior games over a few years, who's had one injury after another, who struggles to get on the park,  just because of the size of his nuts and he goes in hard.... rather than keep a tough midfielder with excellent skills who also goes in hard, is reaching peak form, has a couple of BOGs already this year and is highly respected amongst his teammates, including the captain???

Keep Vanders and remove Gus from our list? Again, crazy talk.

    THE LAST POST by George on the Outer

    The Last Post sounded out in memory of the fallen around a packed MCG at the Anzac Eve match against Richmond. The silence of the crowd assembled was in tribute to those who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country. But the Last Post was also an appropriate symbol of the finals aspirations now gone for the Melbourne Football club, after a mere six rounds of the 2019 Season.   How far has this team fallen!  From a Preliminary final contestant barely six months ago, to cellar dwelle

    THE BRIGHT SIDE by Whispering Jack

    I don’t often agree with Dermott Brereton but he came close to the mark last week when he labelled Melbourne a “team of downhill skiers” that works much harder offensively than it does defensively.  And he was looking at the bright side of the team’s game plan. That proposition has been clear since before the season started. It was obvious from the first JLT game against Richmond when the team leaked multiple goals in a short space of time as players gave metres away to opposition forwards.

    CASEY VS THE AUSSIES by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons played an exhibition match against an Australian Under 19 team at the MCG on Easter Saturday but the game was played with more than half an eye on the fact that whilst their senior counterpart was taking part in their AFL Round 5 game against St Kilda later that afternoon, they also had an assignment just four days later against Richmond.  The team, with 10 AFL Demons, opened strongly and dominated the first half to lead by four goals at the main break before taking most of

    EASTER BUNNIES by George on the Outer

    Easter is supposed to be an occasion of hope, revival and ultimately celebration.  But for the Demon supporters it was none of these as yet again their team was made Easter Bunnies by the Saints. With the exception of Christian Salem, there was not a single winner on the ground.  The danger for the Demons was giving the Saints their own hope and enthusiasm by conceding early goals.  That is exactly what happened in the first quarter, although with some ridiculous frees from the umpires clos

    MARCHING IN by The Oracle

    The most embarrassing loss of the 2018 season (perhaps aside from the Preliminary Final) for Melbourne was the one it suffered in Round 15 against lowly St Kilda. The Demons came into the game as a red hot favourite but were embarrassed by the Saints' speed and willingness to take the contest right up to them for virtually the full four quarters. It was a defeat that they were to bemoan for the remainder of the season. Their arrogance in going into the game and taking an opponent lightly was a c

    RELENTLESS by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons returned to the winning list with an emphatic 54 point victory over a limp North Melbourne VFL combination at Casey Fields on Saturday. Smarting from last week’s thrashing at Box Hill, the Demons came out of the blocks intent on redeeming themselves for their embarrassing start to the 2019 campaign.  After a brief early bout of inaccuracy, the goals flowed as a result of relentless pressure applied to the visitors who were constantly forced into error.

    TO A “T” by George on the Outer

    Thursday night football - not something Melbourne FC are accustomed to doing, especially after barely garnering a Friday night game for years. Yet with this opportunity, the Demons soundly beat the Swans at the SCG and put their season back on Track. This was not only a game of mental toughness, since the Demons had so far failed to win a game in 2019 and faced possibly a season ending prospect of 0-4, should they have failed in Sydney.  History was against them, and Buddy Frankli

    SWANSONG by Whispering Jack

    They said that in 2019, the Melbourne Football Club was going to take its game to another level but we were never prepared for the level the club is reaching as it approaches the fourth round of the season holding up the entire AFL ladder in a match that could be its swansong for the year.    We were meant to be premiership contenders, not playing off for a wooden spoon which is what will be the case unless there is a sudden and dramatic turn around in our fortunes!    And whilst there

    A DAY TO FORGET by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons started the 2019 in unimpressive fashion with a 62 point loss to the  Box Hill Hawks at Box Hill City Oval. It was a total contrast to their 2018 opening when they monstered the Coburg Lions but the circumstances were entirely different. Twelve months ago, the Demons were able to go into the match with a large contingent of AFL listed players while yesterday, they went into the game with 12 Melbourne players, mostly inexperienced.  They were also hampered by the AFL sc

    2019 IS NOT 2018 by George on the Outer

    Seems like an obvious statement doesn’t it?   Yet the MFC coaching staff/team seem to have forgotten to change their calendars on January 1st. A 3 goal loss against the equal bottom side in the competition and now with a 0-3 record for the current season, it should be obvious that things have changed from 2018.  Not so on the field, as Melbourne continue to play the style which got them to a Preliminary final.   Once again the Demons saw 20 goals scored against them for the game.

    THE NIGHT OF THE TORTOISES by The Oracle

    Friday night sees two clubs of which a great deal was expected in 2019, facing off in the battle of the slow starting tortoises. Both have had calamitous starts to the season and are sitting at 0-2. One of them will, by the end of the evening, be seeing their season slipping away from their grasp.   Both clubs are playing without confidence and without purpose. The Demons, who had the best-performed attack of all clubs last year, managed to convert 73 entries inside their forward 50 metre a

    THE CAT RUN by George on the Outer

    It truly became a “Cat Run” with an 80 point win to the home side, an outcome that had us wondering what happened to the Demons of 2018 when they got to a Preliminary final on the basis of their “brand” of contested football?   Well that part hasn’t changed any, since the likes of Clayton Oliver can win the ball 44 times in a game including 15 clearances, Angus Brayshaw racks up 33 touches with Jack Viney chipping in for 27 of this own.  In the ruck Max Gawn had 53 hitouts on the night, and
