Baker has the worst haircut in the VFL

You clearly didn't see the previous one he was rocking. This latest one's a work of art compared to it. And this is the first time that I've seen his head in the game for the entire game. Exciting.

Good hard fought win

 

STRETCH - Prolific but done nothing to suggest he can take the next step

KENT - Poor really rusty.

FROST - Really good game.

PEDERSEN - Serviceable game, took a few good marks.

VINCE - Fantastic game, too good for VFL level.

KENNEDY HARRIS - No real impact.

BALIC - In and out of the game.

BUGG - No real impact as well.

BAKER - BOG must be close to AFL selection.

KING - Still developing took a nice mark and kicked a nice goal.

GARLETT - Poor really struggling at VFL level.

JOHNSTONE - Done some good things developing nicely as a backman.

T.SMITH - Started like a house on fire, but died out of the game late.

KEILTY - Mr. Dependable the best backman on the ground.

FILIPOVIC - No real impact. 

Agree with most but would offer this

Oskar Baker looks ready but where does he play, deserves a game with recent very good form and excellent game today.Reminds me a bit of Cameron Ling the way he plays

Sam Frost is too good for this level hardly made a mistake and unless Petty is one out of the box He also deserves a game . He was top notch today

Bernie was irrepressible as he was impassable also too good

Stretch started very well faded a bit at the end but again was consistent. Still not convinced though but he has definitely improved.

Jeffy some good pressure acts classy goal but this standard does not suit him I believe. Not sure he would ever dominate a game.

Loved the Bernie interview post match. However long it takes, he will be banging the door down to get back in the team. He’s not giving up just yet. 

I hope he gets to 100 Melb games.

Twice in the last Kent had the chance to seal the game one did not make the distance and the other was almost out on the full. Poor kicking from a senior player.

He actually turned the ball over with nearly every possession. He had the chance to ice the game from 30, late in the last quarter and missed everything. Oob on the full and another turnover.

I thought he was terrible and a mile off the seniors.

Yes I know he is coming back from injury, but if that is his disposal, goodnight.

Gee some tough comments here, I thought him quite serviceable and will be better for the run!

Harsh on Baker re disposal, conditions were rubbish and nobody stood out re foot skills.

I didn't think he was that bad either Picket. The shot on an angle was poor but he looked dangerous on occasions albeit short of a gallop.

it's more the fact all of his kicks are so loopy and cause contests rather then nice flat passes, he will never make it at afl level unless he can learn to kick flat

Spot-on 'mnclr',  it was a disgrace last week.  Melky was ripped off throughout the game.

I wonder if TSmith could do with more fitness.   Might be good to see him working more with Daniel Cross ?

 

Dion Johnstone.   I wonder if Jeffy has been having any effect on Dion's development, over the past 10 months or so?

It seems ever since Jeffy won our trust this time last year;,,, and our written accolades, he has gone downhill.

And I'm wondering IF Dion has followed him in that same time-frame, effecting his footy?

bakers footskills are poor and very loopy, had a solid game but frost Vince and keilty were all better 

Not just his footskills Elegt,  I think his ball skills generally need tidying up, at brief look today.

Que?, Jeff Garlett just lost form at the wrong time, he is doing his role at VFL level, obviously not well enough to be banging the door down to get back into the AFL side

Dion was treading water in the forward half, club moved him back, with Nev Jetta tutoring, now enjoying his footy as you can see

Rucks got slaughtered, so a pretty good effort to get the win.

Vince stood out.

Stretch is getting better.

Frost pretty strong.

Not a lot of speed in the team.

Balic injured or just slow?

Not only hope I'm certain he will have great little footy kids.  He has to get the 100 in RednBlue.

I think he'll freshen up well, and If he plays like today he'll be handy in September.  He looked fresher, younger the way he moved.

balic looks like a slow version of Pederson, surprised me really as in his draft year he was touted as a first round prospect, I think he needs to lose a few kilos and word on those fast twitch fibres

I watched the 1st half today and thought Jeffry played his role. A lot of pressure acts and tackles, some leading to goals plus one classy, classic Jeffry goal himself.

wasnt disappointing for me.

There is definite things to like about Keilty, Balic, Stretch, Frost at this level. Baker promising.

if we need changes next week I’d be happy with Vince.

I watch Casey each week. Unless there are a lot of injuries Gartlett is finished. JKH was consistently beaten one on one all day. 

On the bright side Baker gets better each week. Spoke to him at Willy and he spoke a lot of sense. 

Also I have been harsh on Frost but the last two weeks has been very good. Dion is also improving  

Lets hope nothing happens to Gawn because Casey ruchmen are three years away. 

Try never!

Kent looks a long way off. Very slow

First game back after a longish layoff into a game played in wet and wind.   Certainly didn’t push his case for the selectors but wouldn’t mark his papers quite yet.

Baker is about as opposite a player as you could find to Ling.

    BACK IN STYLE by Whispering Jack

    From the moment when the Elton John character in the movie “Rocketman” burst into its opening scene dressed as a flamboyant demon on his way to an addiction rehabilitation session, the game was on. Here was yet another film about a person gifted with a meteoric rise to stardom finding coke, booze and a hedonistic lifestyle that led directly to a destructive crash into the abyss. Ultimately, these stories end in total disaster (“A Star is Born”, “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Judy”) but this one resulted

    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
