I reckon it will be more than that. The shoulder surgery guys (Clarry, Harmes, Jetta?) probably won't be ready for contact and I doubt Viney will be full time training by then. Lever definitely not. Petracca possibly not either. Not sure where Melk is at but didn't do much running the day I was there and then there is the question mark over where Hannan has been the last two sessions.

It's not surprising we have more in rehab given we went deep into September.  We haven't seen this problem for years and we are not accustomed to it.

I think this is the issue 'george'...

Given the late start to training (and required surgery) and the extra long Christmas break this year I'm not overly concerned with the rehab list.

The club wouldn't want to push too many at this stage.

The real measure will be after the break.

I would expect the injury list to drop markedly after the first week back.

None of that has any relevance to what you were pulled up on. That being; what it is that determines an 'interrupted pre-season'.

I don't need to go and ask coaches at training to know that.

 It remains to be seen whether or not the number of players we have in rehab/missing parts of the program will have an impact come the start of the season. Whilst I agree that the majority are at least able to do most of the running part of pre-season, you've cast a blind eye over pretty much every other component of fitness which at this level, are all extremely important given how competitive the game is.

Good post STMJ.

I think there is little doubt we will be impacted by the number of players we have who have had interrupted preseasons. History tells us as much. The question is how much (Note: to be clear i'm not suggesting you think otherwise - i'm sure you agree and were just being conciliatory)  

Of course a mitigating factor will be that most in rehab have been able to keep their fitness levels up, but any disruption hurts to some degree and the issue we have is so many players are having some interruptions.  

An issue for the dees is the 'Melbourne way' ie goody's way places a huge emphasis on fitness but also high intensity, high impact football that will expose any deficit cause by interrupted preparations.

With so few player's rehabbing last year we were able to make a fast start. But one huge positive (and at the risk of jinxing them) is unlike last year Tmac and Viney both seem to have had uninterrupted preseasons thus far. If that continues we will have both ready and raring to go round 1, which will go along way to offset the high impact of the number of players who have had interrupted preseasons

Nicely articulated @binman but we all knew what was happening.  STMJ was playing semantics with Saty as Saty was with STMJ. I used to get involved in this oneupmanship for which I now apologize.  It really is just plain boring.

On a topic related comment, Viney's situation is concerning given his history.  Reported as an ankle operation postseason and in the latest from Ben Guthrie it's now turned into a foot issue.  I'm hoping for the best but I'm not confident.  Waiting for Misso's injury report and looking forward to seeing how many in rehab return to full training post-Christmas.

Brendan McCartney believes how important pre-seasons were. Many players have still to do a full pre-season and how crucial it is to, not only fitness but interestingly, to skill. He said that it is only when the player is at their peak and have totally grown into their body, meaning height as well in Weids case, and actually undergoing a 1st preseason in Vand den and J Smths (I think) case, that the silky side of skills blossoms. I hadnt realised he was foreseeing a large percentage of our best players were going under the knife end of year.

It does make you gasp to see how Jack Viney and van den Burg came in at the end of season and took the bull by the horns so to speak.

In any case it seems to me the telling part of 2019 will be how we go in the 1st half dozen and the last few matches.

Its not uncommon to see the power clubs mid ladder up to 6 weeks into the new season... before they start to hit their form.

When playing into late September, we ought to structure our training time-frames to suit being as fresh as we can be, for the finals series.

My understanding is omac is rehabbing from back pain.

From carrying the backline for the last two years. 

Obviously was too heavy a load.

Terrible thing to happen to Mitchell but I wouldn’t say that a key injury to such a major player for a rival team for a finals spot is “not MFC related”. 

Let’s hope that we don’t suffer a similar setback to one of our players.

Saw an article on Robert Shaw and he described Salem as the most skillful of the players that he coached at Brighton Grammar and that he could turn a game in 15 minutes. Kelly and Watts were others he coached. Pretty big wrap on Salem and suggests he has improvement left in him.

I'd think we would all agree on that because of the plethora of skills that Salem has displayed in a mixed team that rarely involves him in all aspects of the game; what he has shown is a superlative consistency in his application (when the team time aspect of his game was involved). Skills? Most definitely 'YES'. More game involvement? I just wonder about his previous injuries, medical conditions, body build for the rough stuff; so far, he has been more than useful and at times, brilliant. Team maturation will bring out his best, I'm sure.

good update from Misso

especially regarding Gussy

only 8 left in Rehab is a big improvement

very positive report. hope its on the mark. I noticed Melksham was very restricted during the finals with his hamstring. he was still in such good form for us. amazing really. I think hes more important the Petracca on our forward line so hope we get him right. the other is Viney. amazes me he was in rehab due to his foot, then played finals then back to rehab. Doesn't that suggest we were rolling the dice a bit?. we need to get him right and if you ever going to rest him its now.

Misso is back at last with a Pre-season injury update and reports on the rehab list which consists of 8 players at the moment:-

Oskar Baker coming back from a hammy and “due to do some training on” the club's forthcoming camp. 

Mitch Hannan doing some running after a “double knee scope”.

Nathan Jones is recovering slowly from some back and hamstring issues he had before Christmas.

Jake Lever (ACL) - over a few pre-Christmas issues and “starting to put in some really consistent training.”

Jake Melksham another one a hamstring issue and “taking a little bit more time with it.”

Clayton Oliver - both shoulders were operated on and expected to be in full training by “the end of camp.”

Jack Viney is going really well and will be back from his foot issues in full training after the camp.

Guy Walker had a procedure on his shoulder over the Christmas break “which is going to be a reasonably slow recovery.”

It feels like this preseason we've had way more guys starting slow and recovering from surgery, not to mention a few injuries thrown in. Anyone else concerned heading into the season? I've got a slightly uneasy feeling about it all. Hopefully I'm just being paranoid!

The Flip side is that they were all carrying these injuries into matches hence limiting performance in some way.

It may take 3-4? games to get our best team on the park but at least they may all be in a physically better place by the pointy end of the season. Go Dees!

I'm sure I read somewhere that apart from Lever, all payers have pretty much had an uninterrupted preseason?

Don't panic 'M'.  I think we are having an exceptional Pre season with very few real concerns. 

Only minor niggles, that the club thankfully is treating patiently with kid gloves.  The club rightly knows that it will be a long season for us...  and we will warm into the season, so that we can be full flight by May.

 

If we are 2 & 2 in the 1st month of the season we wil be in great shape for the ladder.  If we better that, we are in prime territory.

There is absolutely no point going off prematurely, and fading away after the midway point.

 - - - - - - - - - - - - -

 

My take on all the preseason surgeries, especially  'Oli'  have two shoulders Reco'd,  is not just for 2019...  but looking at 2019, 2020, 2021...

 

We are just starting to open our window,  to let the autumn breeze blow through.

    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

    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! 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.

    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?

    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

    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.
