Great memories of last minute of the 88 Final, last time we beat the Eagles. Hopefully today we can improve that score.

 

 

don't think I could deal with the Glendinning kick again

Are you serious?

Maybe we have 23 players today!

Yes, mate said to him we want to see a Melbourne v Coll GF and that’s how he responded. Probably trying to calm our nerves down. He was good value.

Was up until mid night, went to bed didn't sleep very well.

Just want the game to start, it's the b#^^*@ waiting that's making me nervous, over thinking the game match ups. 

So proud of our club this year, well done to every one at the club for an amazing year, so far😍

Go you mighty Dee's give "m' hell boys😈

I feel perfectly calm, same as before we played them a month ago in Perth.

That was when, while every other supporter was still freaking out about the loss to Sydney a week earlier, I promised @Ethan Tremblay his new BMX as it was like Christmas Eve the night before we seal our first finals berth in 12 years.

Maybe this sense of calmness is a a sign - or maybe I am completely irrelevant and its just a coincidence.  I think its the latter.

Go Dees, smash the Meth Coke degenerates.

i dont understand why. collingwood is a much bigger threat than that of richmond and last night proved that.

But Collingwood have already been beaten in this Finals Series (by West Coast)!  Win today and we have a very good chance!

We’re all set now this is the one that matters. In the non MFC prelim final thread I talked about the Collingwood possibilities and how tough it would be but right now all that talk and thinking goes into the bin. One thing to focus on now and it’s this game.

Starts in the middle as it usually always does. If we do our thing and win contested ball like animals we will be a massive chance, If WC break even in that area they will win. We must, must, MUST take our chances, that will be it.

Joel Smith got the nod as we know. I want him to keep this game as simple as possible. Use his athleticism to get to as many contests as possible and punch the hell out of it. 

The one I have a feeling about today is VandenBerg. I think he might be about to turn in a memorable one. 

I feel sick, excited, nervous. The whole palette of emotions. I don’t think I’m ready for this but we’ll have to be. I need to say the following for myself because I’m finding it hard to think like this but what will be will be and we have no control over it. Footy is great but life will go on.

Come on Dees, raise hell! Like never before!

The Eagles have played one game in 4 weeks.  Same as Richmond.  The bye before the finals has become a killer for top 4 teams that win in week 1.

Too many weeks off is a BAD thing.  Must take advantage today.. The Eagles will not be match hardened, much like the Tigers last night.

At the beginning of the week I went in with the mindset that we’ve exceeded expectations and will challenge in years to come even if we don’t get up today 

Collingwood winning last night has changed my feeling. I’ll be gutted if we lose. Cmon Dees

I was very confident against Geelong and Hawthorn, but not so today. 

Even with a loss it's been a huge year and a portent of things to come. 

Portent of things to come ?  Stuff portent of things to come.  You make the most of an opportunity when it's there.

Melbourne Storm into Grand Final. Thought I must have overslept and missed a whole day in my life when I saw this headline on the ABC news this morning. I would love to see it again tomorrow morning with a small s in the word storm. Go Demons!!!!!!!

Very nervous, and about to head out to federation square.

If it was at the G I’d be confident, but I do believe these boys will give it everything.

I’m ready for a pre match snooze, then head to bottle shop, stock up with some cold ones and watch the Demons come out on fire!

All the talk has been about Kennedy, Darling, I’ll trump that with one Jack Viney!

Go Dees, smash them by one plus points!

This.

Combined with the fact that this is a total free kick for us, with absolutely nothing to lose.

We're on today I reckon.

Except for Nicholls, that AFL-infiltrated spy, trying to bump us out.

We just ran into Razor and his buddies. Told Nicholls to keep walking, we only wanted a photo with Razor. Believe it or not, he said our boys have got this. No idea what this means.

You should have made sure he couldn't.

Clarrie is a man who retains his words; he does not mouth off - a keen observer happy out of the immediacy of the verbal limelight, most of the time. He knows something and keeps it to himself. His words come out as actions of the field, and in communications with his teammates onfield, between bursts. If Clarrie says: '...we got this...', we had better believe it. 

Random thought, from a mate: 'OMac has been practising goal kicking at some depth and has done very well at it. Possibly, TMac to CHB, OMac to FFwd. Whadya reckon?'

 

Um, he had a shouting match with a Carlton fan in the crowd last (?) year... Not sure that statement is entirely correct.

    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

    RIPPING THE HEART OUT by George on the Outer

    And BOG for St. Kilda in last night’s game at Marvel Stadium? It was Melbourne!  This brilliant contributor managed to be the initiator of 13.7 in turnovers for the side, and resulted in a come from behind victory for the mighty Saints. That’s it folks, Melbourne have set a new record for the most turnovers resulting in opposition scores. Despite leading half way through the final quarter (yet again) the Demons managed to right themselves and deliver the ball directly to the opposition

    AINT THAT A CRYING SHAME by The Oracle

    It’s a crying shame that we happen to be playing against the resurgent St Kilda just as they have managed to overcome a rotten patch of form with an upsurge in momentum resulting from the sacking of its coach and the appointment of a new one.    The Saints had a purple patch at the start of the season winning four of their first five games (including the one against the sloppy and sluggish Demons in Round 5) before collapsing into the sink hole that led to them parting ways with coach Alan
