Has Jack Viney done much with the main group? Hopefully he can play a JLT. 

I think I heard Melksham joined the main group which is positive. 

23 days to go!

26 Days until the Demons take the field for Round 1. 23 days until the Extended Bench team is picked for Round 1.

I don't believe that he has trained with the main group this preseason.

So i guess he has had no interruptions to his interrupted preseason.

Looks like all of Jones, Viney, May and Melk are good

Kolo Good for round 1 (probably VFL)

Lever Going great guns

Hannan seems terrible "Hopefully see him before the bye" 😫

Nietschke done for the year obviously

Great result to have those guys back in full training with still 3 and half weeks until round 1!

Get KK right for the season.

Shame about Hannan but if he can get his knee 100% for the back end of the season he'll be cherry ripe come finals. He was playing through the injury in the finals last year so I reckon he can get to another level when fit.

That Kolo injury sounds nasty. Playing in round 1 at any level seems ambitious.

Hannan - not good, but I’m of the belief he’s been inconsistent since he’s joined up and played a lot of games bandaged up. It’s preseason so I’ll take the optimistic view that getting him fully healthy will be good for him.

Hannan could be a handy addition, much like AVB, in the second half of the season.  If you watch the highlights of the last 4-5 games of the season, which includes the finals, he was a key contributor in either scoring goals or being in a position to assist them.  With our depth I'd say he gets plenty of time to get himself right and put himself in the frame to make an impact come July or August.

Is it just me or has Hannan being out for half a season just come out of nowhere?

Fingers crossed they get this round of rehab right and he comes back fit. As with others above, I feel he has been consistently hampered with knee problems.

Just wondering what is the official latest on Lever? At the beginning of the thread mentions mid season, after surgical setback. I realize he is currently in the USA doing that rehab course, which has been very successful with others i believe...

I hope they don't do any rushin with Kade, after his osteitus tendon injury.   Let him ease the way back. 

I don't mind if he misses the Rnd1 and Rnd2.   Just get him 100% first...  at his new club.  

He is coming off injury issues and broken chains of games.   Lets not risk his long-term well being with us,  just for an early start in 2019.  It's not worth it.

 

Get him absolutely 100% right,  before he plays any senior games.

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!

Addressing these issues (with surgery at various levels of depth) and more gentle and time-consuming training/readiness agendas in place, it is better for the whole team to have dealt with these requirements prior to the start of the season or, for example, midway through the season, or by largely overlooking or even ignoring latent problems in/with players where these could well fester, leaving a severely handicapped depth listing nearing the end of season - when we should be knocking off other finals aspirants without mercy or concern. Notice - ameliorate - fix - prepare - test - win responsibly.  A good footy mantra.

With all of the justified concern over player fitness and team depth this coming season, ain't it just going to be amazing and inspiring when they all hit the ground together for the first time, and line up on match day as a totally unbeatable team of great footballers with immense team pride and interactivity.

Why do you want him to play in the JLT? To get injured again?

The bad news:

  • Lever - another 3 to 4 months.  That suggests a return to the field just before or after the bye ie round 12, 14.  Hannah another 2 to 3 months.

Not so bad news: 

  • KK - 3 to 4 weeks away.  Garlett avoids surgery but is 4 to 6 weeks.

Good news:

  • Jones, May, Melksham and Viney are cleared of previous injuries and all expected to play some form of football this week.

What they decided was as he was going to get one knee done, they may as well fix both up, hopefully to end his knee issues

Unfortunately the 'worse' knee had a bit of a hiccup and he had to have a small procedure post Xmas

Club believes in fixing the issues completely or hope to, no matter how long that takes

He has, like Vanders, been working his butt off in the gym, so core strength will be even better than ever 

He starts his preseason on legs next week, hence the timeframe

Most of the others rehabbing were either small procedures or not leg related and were able to get the k's in

Hence Oliver's performance post an 'interrupted' pre season

so with Hannan being out for a while, and now Garletts injury, who would be next in line as a goal sneak/small fwd option for us? Bedford, Chandler, or heaven help us, C.Wagner or JKH?

also can we still use our last draft pick* to get a player like that, or has the window shut on that option?

edit- *spot on our list may have been a better term.

    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
