Good Lord George

WELCOME TO THE MELBOURNE FOOTBALL CLUB - JAY LOCKHART

Recommended Posts

Considering he has only been in a professional environment for a couple of months, I think he has great promise to be a good role player.

Lockhart showed enough to be close to AFL ready last year. With a preseason now he could be very handy as a backup for Jetta or a lockdown mid.  

Definitely shows we nearly drafted him last year. 

Lockhart probably equal with Hore for best 1st year player.  Hannan Fritsch Hore Lockhart.  Good talent out of VFL and our Casey link is working out.  Mitch Lewis is another one still to watch at Casey

Have no idea what this even means. You are either simple or can't grasp the context of what i have been saying. 

From my first impressions of Lockhart this YEAR, is that he looks a natural footballer. He is surprisingly a strong mark for his size, quick, a good kick of the foot and has good nous of where the goals are.

He is the exact reason why Spargo and ANB are arent getting games and thats a bloody mighty achievement for someone who didnt even do a AFL pre season and spent the summer working as a labourer. 

With more games and experience he will only get better.

You said he is battler. Well i can tell you he's not.

Lockhart has heart. That is the sign of a battler. Battle ready.  He is one player I would be happy to run out on GF day to give 100%.  

DD says never knew Lockhart before March 2019.  Must live in a very dark cave.  Only played a whole year at Casey in the Demons team !! DD either lacks a neural nerve or is just hollow.  Assume both.

I didnt watch a Casey game last year because 

1. I dont give two [censored] about Casey players

2. I have much more important things i prioritize in my life then watch a VFL game. Like playing my own game of footy on a Saturday or spending my Sunday with family and friends. I have a life mate.. unlike you i dont sit on my computer all day scrambling to watch meaningless VFL games.

You will also find majority of people had never seen Lockhart play as some live interstate and wouldnt get live games on tv.

Again you have failed to understand the context of what i am trying to say.

This is the last you will hear from me on this, as i have now come to the conclusion that you're simply not with it.

16,623 posts by a serial troll. 

Anyway my point is Lockhart has a heart and plays that way.  Great competitor like Jetta.  That’s the point.  

Unfortunately ineligible for a rising star nomination (23) as recognition to his start to AFL career.

21 possessions (10 contested), 432 metres gained (#1), 8 inside 50s, 5 score involvements, 2 goals.

His stats don’t tell the full story either. He is a smart player under pressure and he doesn’t fumble. Two things we are crying out for.

We’ve found one here.

A lot to like about today's game. Has some natural football smarts, is clean with his hands, and has a piercing kick. Small forward position isn't an easy role to play though. There aren't too many small forwards that play consistently aside from Walters, Ablett, Betts, De Goey. Others tend to be in and out of games, so hope he can continue to develop and play other positions. Spargo and even JKH (in his first season) both looked promising at times but are now in the VFL as they aren't elite forwards or able to play other positions when things aren't going their way

I’d just like to put my flag in the ground and say I’ve claimed him!

Love his composure in traffic, especially around goal. Stands out like dogs balls when other, more fancied, teammates are so quick to dump it by hand or foot when under pressure.

When I watched him against Collingwood last week in the VFL he was 2 steps above everyone else. His speed and power around the contests were phenomenal.

The fact that he is already making a huge impact with NO afl pre season behind is amazing.

Has huge upside.

Jay has the 3 P’s - Pace, Poise and  Polish. Quite remarkable for someone that has come in without experience or a proper preseason. A great get and a big contract extension beckons.

He played a terrific game yesterday.

He played with the poise of a far more experienced player. If he continues this development he'll be a gun. Kudos to whoever spotted him in the wildlands of Taswegia.

Have liked his game from the get-go: as others have said, he has real footy smarts and keen determination, but also he goes so hard at the footy, regardless of the opponent. Yesterday, there were three occasions that I saw, where he crashed the contest against much bigger bodies.

He and Marty Hore have been great pick ups this year - long term Demons, both of them.

He’s the sort of player that is picked up as a mature age recruit by another club, has the game against us that he had yesterday and we all think “why can’t we pick up a player like that?”

This season we’ve picked up two of those types, Hore and Lockhart.

He also worked hard the other way and intercepted in some plays down back.  Not just the talent.  Bloke is willing to work his [censored] off.  Great signs!

Great first goal.   He could be the small forward we desperately need.

Lockhart is about the only thing keeping  me interested at the moment.  Has kicked some lovely goals already.. has great goal sense.  I feel he may snag a couple of bags this season as he gets more comfortable and our mess of gameplan is (hopefully) sorted out.

If Goody moves him from the forward line I will scream.

Jay Lockhart Man Crush -  Activated

Knew he was going to be a gun player.  And I was right as always.

It is quite hard being a genius. Some days are much harder than others especially with all the pressure that comes with it,  but you do what you can to get by.

Really like the way Lockhart goes about it. I think we’ve definitely found a player. Interesting to see how he goes off a full pre season.

@Drunkn167has been singing Jay's praises since he joined Casey.  Jade Rawlings probably kept his name front and centre for Taylor.

I think he may have a similar trajectory to one we did miss in Papley (although he’s no mental giant going by his election day interview).

However we’ve done quite well in this department of late. 

The dogs & pies would be asking why they missed out on Hannan & Hore, while we still managed to get Fritsch & Lockhart.

    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

    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

    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
