Hunts out injured and as for Garlett, there's a position there for him if he pulls the finger out at Casey tomorrow. Same for Weideman...

Hunt is out injured for 4-6 weeks. Agree Garlett needs to come in. Our forward line is a shambles and needs a spark. He can provide that spark and is a genuine goal scoring option.

In Weed or Garlett. 

Out. Trac or Hogan 

sorry a message needs to be sent

Hogan probably stays on this years form. Love Trac but like Hunt needs some time to get himself right in the magoos

Petty and Baker must come in we are too slow and small down back. Garlett must also come in.

Forget about the 3 tall forwards and drop Tim.Smith, drop Joel as well and drop Petracca he's been disgraceful. Hogan hasn't been much better the last 2 weeks he must lift.

 

IN: Petty, Baker and Garlett

OUT: Tim.Smith, Joel.Smith and Petracca

I want to see Petty get a game. Don't like the under-sized backline. Put him on McCartin who is also a young player.

Either Spargo or Garlett also in, whoever performs better at Casey this weekend.

Doesn’t matter who plays well at Casey tomorrow. Garlett can kick 10 and the usual suspects will bob up to say it was against an amateur side in Coburg. 

Love it when people suggest Garlett doesn’t do enough in the VFL but we bring guys straight back in without playing VFL.

I would like to see Garlett back in the mix. I feel we're throwing away an asset due to a stubborn insistence on performance at the secondary level - which is reasonable, but you also have to manage your particular players in terms of their specific strengths/traits/personalities, and Jeff has never had the mojo at lower levels. 

Kicked nearly 120 goals in the last few years - a good many from rewards for forward pressure - and that potential doesn't evaporate overnight after a couple week performances. Charlie - love him - won't be offering anything anywhere near that in the short-term. 

Injured/dropped (I can't recall - but I think an ankle) in 2016 and came back and kicked 4 the next time out. Dropped (this time pretty sure) later in the year and - after doing nothing at Casey - came back and kicked 4 on recall. 

Missed last year after West Coast (I think again as a wake-up - and did nothing in the reserves) and came back and kicked 3 against Carlton. Won the match for us this year v Brisbane with 4, backing up with 3 the following week, and two weeks later he is gone (when we got hammered in the middle by Hawthorn and Richmond). 

We simply can't afford to leave him in the wilderness based on some strict KPI's - one of the league's classiest finishers. Please, Goodwin and co. - be flexible in your approach and bring Garlett back in.

Next week probably isn’t the week to bring in another tall back like Petty, there isn’t an obvious match-up requirement. But I’d like to see him sooner rather than later in a game with two big opposition forwards.

I’d swap Tim Smith and Tyson for Weid and Garlett.

Weid in because, while I like Smith’s endeavour, he just doesn’t impact the game and was smashed by Dixon and Westhoff in the relief ruck role tonight. Garlett in for Tyson as we are already balls deep in inside mids but someone who can add some spark would be welcome. We were crying out for an opportunistic goal almost all night and Jeffy seems to have that ability. ANB hangs on despite the awareness and skills of my 16 month old son because he adds a little bit of value with his F50 tackling.

I think its nearly time for Garlett again,,, but also it could be Spargo who may come back in, after a week off ?

If not Spargo, maybe Baker to a wing ?

 

I wonder if Petracca needs a week, to rest his weariness off ?

I would not drop Tyson after just the one game...  and similarly, Joel smith. I like his size difference down back flank. And he needs all the in-game development he can gather.

 

We very nearly, (and should have) taken the points over in Adel' town.   And we had so many players just a bit off touch, because of intensity.

 

So thee is very little to do at the moment.  Except continue getting games together as a unit,,, while they deserve them.

Very open to dropping Harmes and Petracca but the forward/mid stocks are light on as it is and we have to redeploy Fritsch to half back to replace Lewis and bring in Spargo as is.

Petracca's fine. He had more disposals and more marks than his fellow forwards, ANB, Melksham and Hannan, and I don't see too many calling for their heads.

People should stop expecting him to be the second coming.

Im calling for ANB's head.

Does absolutely nothing in tightly contested matches, aside from running around creating packs.  Has great effort and tries hard and clearly loves playing for Melbourne which is great, but an incredibly limited and over-rated footballer, who the opposition would be putting no time into.

    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

    THAT’S FOOTBALL by Whispering Jack

    As the season rolls on towards the finals and the football world witnesses the aftermath of the sacking of the league’s unsuccessful coaches, it’s almost  inevitable that the spotlight will turn firmly upon the complete and utter failure of season 2019 - the Melbourne Football Club.  For a team that finished in fourth place last year and was heavily touted as a premiership contender, the fall from grace has been dramatic. As things stand, the Demons look certain to finish 13 places down on

    THE MOMENT OF TRUTH IS COMING by KC from Casey

    At half time in Sunday’s game at Trevor Barker Beach Oval, things weren’t looking too flash for the flailing finals prospects of the Casey Demons. Key forward Sam Weideman had suffered a concussion in his first contest and, with a few exceptions, the team was playing like a rabble rather than a finals contender. The Demons were 23 points in arrears to the Zebras and their season was headed towards oblivion. It was the skipper Mitch White who spurred his team on by word and by deed - he fini
