My 3 word player analysis V Geelong

Recommended Posts

Had another look - counted 6 players who may have won their spots ,made a difference or played well ( according to your 3 word summary )  - and we lost by 2 points ! Your three word summary is not worth 3 words - two will do - mostly crap! /

Why don’t YOU give us all the benefit of your totally cool, calm and rational 3 word analysis?

A tough analysis to give after that.  Feeling gutted and completely ripped off.

JKH - Casey Demons Beckons.

cant see the kid getting another go.  He doesn’t seem to fit anywhere, and doesn’t do enough

Garlett - seagull not vulture

 Not enough of the old Jeffy to commend

OMac- 10 minutes too long

coach cooked Oscar.  Needed more support in the last, perhaps an extra man playing 5 in front of the Frisch-puncher.

Max- not quite to the max

a bit of an off game, and off the ground at the wrong times

Midfield- outwilled, outworked and lacked polish for 20 minutes.  Won the rest.

Umpires- not awful, but a few absolute howlers leading to goals

Spargo was great early, Trac looking good, Joel Smith not out of place.

Jeffy: doesnt look interested

Seriously, he looks like his mind is halfway out the door. Haven't seen him smile in the last two weeks. Possibly may request a trade end of year?

OMac - TGR sticks fat

I'm sticking fat with Omac too.
Gets a raw deal among the supporters.
Didn't see 'em squealing when he held Hawkins to nothin' last game.
Startin' to put on some proper size now too.
Gonna be a big unit when he's done and could be Tmac II when moved forward.

its easy to defend im today's afl mate. theres 40 players in the 50m arcand plenty of help. holding hawkins goalless was more due to the game. i dont recall omac winning a lot of 1 on 1s in that game. 7 goals in today's game is probably equivalent to 10 goals about 10 years ago. id much prefer joel smith or frost. joel smith played really well yday. 

p.s. i don't care how big omac gets, he'll always be slow in the body and slow in the mind

I'm ashamed to even read these above words! joeboy you must of been an amazing player!

Where to begin.

Fritsch was awesome tonight.

Spargo very good again.

Clarry very good.

Big Max Awesome.

Jordan Lewis classy.

Frost was good.

Jones played well as usual.

Angus good and spirited.

Harmes was busy retarding there's.

Jeffy not so good.

Jake Melk great when he was there.

Petracca doing good things.

Nev Jed great.

Big Tom fantastic.

Dom better, but still problematic.

Joel smith great fighting ability and still very promising.

Salem class.

Bernie. Reassures us. (Back off haters).

Kennedy looking fitter.

Oscar exposed again.

Jesse good when in possession.

 

We lost when we should of won. Jones needs to command more off the ball. Composure in the final minutes could of won this match.

We lost when we should of won, so I personally look at all the positives.

 

Agree with this assessment rather than the one that intimated we got done by 186 points.

Oscar appears to be back as the fall guy again, but he is the last in line and their midfield played the last quarter really well in the way the Fwd line was so open and the delivery was to die for.

Why didn't we draft Kelly ????? He is exactly the player we need ( a midside midfielder with silky delivery )

Jones - becoming a liability

Jetta - little to commend

O.McDonald - was comprehensively destroyed

Smith - has limited skills

Lewis - slow but important 

Vince - a momentum killer

Frost - some impressive touches

Fritsch - needed more urgency

Gawn - had limited impact

Oliver - prolific but tired

Brayshaw - sacrificed to tag

Harmes - wonderful tagging game

Hogan - gave us little

T. McDonald - always looked dangerous 

Spargo - disappeared second half

Garlett - disappeared whole game

Neal Bullen - just lacks class

Kennedy Harris - out of depth

Melksham - was hardly sighted

Petracca - was almost terrific 

Tyson - never play again

Salem - just a game 

 

 

Terrible analysis

He's keen on going home West.
Geelong look like losing him.

JKH card should now be marked.
Gets his chances during games and fails time and again.
I've got a similar bead on ANB during clutch plays.
Cannot handle the pressure.

I always like Joeboy's analysis, even if I don't always agree. I particularly like his segue from Spargo to Garlett.

I'll defend ANB. He set up many goals with some surprisingly precise kicks. I thought it was one of his better games.

And a three word analysis of the coaches' box: Slow to react

Agree quite strongly, two nice rebounds from OMac set the game up. This is obvious, surely? It gave us some new hope not seen in other games this year - or last year, for that matter. Then, he lost it, totally.

Hibberd, Viney and Speed were great losses tonight. Pedo should have been a back pocket tonight, changing at CHF - supporting both OMac and Hogan, Gawn and Spargo and Jeffy. 

ANB was off with the pixies and the deadly momentum wasters (Vince and Lewis) could seriously think of how they could be paying the MFC back for all of their limited contributions.

Harmes, Gus, Oliver and Fritsch worked hard.

OMac undid all of their hard work. 

The ball came in easily to Hawkins from the midfield domination of Geelong in the last quarter when our midfielders went to sleep. Oscar had little or no support unlike the multiple Geelong defenders on Hogan who ganged up and went up for the ball every time it was kicked to him.

    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

    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.

    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
