May and Petty to come in for OMc and Frost.

I'd like Keilty to come in, to chopout Maxy, and can play fore and aft...  or from the pine.   Not sure who would be the out for Keilty ?

Kolodjashnij  must come in he is a good user and we desperately need that. There is 3 must ins and 2 possible ins in J.Smith and Preuss.

KK will likely need some time in the 2s to build match fitness... 

J.Smith is out for 6 weeks.

I agree with KK in if he gets through tomorrow ok, although Dr D said he doesn't go hard at the pill.....(he must know more than us) KK's run & carry or anyone's run & carry will be helpful.....

J Smith out for 4 to 6 weeks so can't come in & Vanders I think will be another couple of weeks with stress relation ankle issues, I would think.

If Viney not fit then rest him (looked sore).....if Jones, who's obviously lacking fitness & looking after himself, 3 contested poss & 1 tackle, (he's our captain right?), back to Casey. CP needs a rev!

Give the young fella's another go & maybe some of our so called stars need a kick in the [censored]......oh also, Goodwin out coached  - we looked slow & unfit.

My bad. Sack Misson. Play Petracca at CHF AND TELL HIM TO RUN YOU LAZY BASTARD.. I'd like to see Jordon play another good user of the ball that we desperately lack. Hunt to be used forward his ball use isn't good enough to play half back.

B: JETTA, MAY, KOLODJASHNIJ

HB: HIBBERD, PETTY, SALEM

C : HARMES, OLIVER, FRITSCH

HF: C.WAGNER, PETRACCA, SPARROW

We definitely have a problem with our fitness and KK probably won't help with that, but I'm willing to roll the dice and bring in good ball users. Our ball use is diabolical .Surely Jones, Viney and Gawn won't all have shockers on the same day again?

Didn’t stick a single tackle all game. As you said, can’t fault his endeavour, but we have to do better than that.

Also can't kick over a jam tin. Have a look at the guy for Doggies tonight. Just as small and runs in right spots and normally delivers by foot and hand to his own team mates. Understand he has been in for a few years but Spargo now is in 2nd year after nearly playing all last year and I see nothing in him that gives me any confidence. Hope I'm wrong .

Drop the Weid he needs to find form in the VFL. Time to play Petty he looked good in his limited time in the JLT.

well it certainly has been a dramatic fall from grace for the Weed .Last week he was a better key forward then Jesse and this week it is off to the VFL.Still seems our best bet at FF but dont expect another Hogan.

Not sure on KK needing 2 weeks in two's. We played 3 blokes today who didn't play a praccy game in one's at all and only Milkshake gave something. Jones and Viney, both Captains played NOT as Captains. KK will at least provide some run and delivery.

Upping it to one more out in the hope that KK and Preuss both come up trumps tomorrow in the magoos

IN: May, KK, Preuss
OUT: Frost, ANB, C Wagner

B: Jetta - May - Hore
HB: Hunt - O Mac - Hibberd
? Salem - Brayshaw - Jones
HF: Petracca - T Mac - Viney
F: Preuss - Weideman - Melksham
Foll: Gawn - Oliver - Harmes
I/c: Spargo - KK - Fritsch - Sparrow
Emerg: Stretch - Petty - ANB - Keilty

Unfortunately, Hunt has to be retained as he’s one of very few players we have with pace

Same for Spargo - he’s a midget but at least he competes for the footy, unlike ANB, who has looked terrible all year

Sparrow was good and holds his place

Viney and Jones looked way underdone, as did Jones - if a player can’t run out three quarters, let alone four, DON’T PLAY EM!

Did you see the Weid actually put in today. He was lethargic and basically didn't chase, tackle or give any effort out there today. Trust it was a bad one, put it away and play consistently like the game against Cats in Semi

I hope not Werridee.....

Other younger players get crucified for turnovers & yet our skipper does time & time again & it kills us! Today was probably one of his worse games I can remember & whilst he has been a soldier for us over many years, he needs to gain much needed fitness & form. This will represent great leadership.

We need JV & hope he can stay fit.....Gawny will respond!

A bit harsh on Wagner he's been better than Spargo.

Not overly impressed with Oscar and Hore getting a game they are useless. I would have to say any of those 3 in Frost, Oscar and Hore play we lose it at the selection table.

I'd keep ANB for 1 more week he was good last year hasn't found his feet this year but I'm willing to give him 1 more week.

Happy with the ins although I find it hard to see both Preuss and Weid producing in the same team.

Hore and Oscar need to go before ANB and Wagner, Petty should be in too.

I don’t know Werridee, is there such a position anymore? A few times today I saw T Mac and Weid lead up to the middle/half back for marks. When we won the ball off the pack we would go forward quick and suddenly realise we had no one to kick to especially in the last quarter. Imo, I’d have Trac deep and isolated as much as possible.

I don't know if hes fit,  has he trained the past couple of weeks, since the, what, groin ?

I'd like to see KK after a run with Casey.  And I'd prefer to blood KK into the team, when we have some good form.  So we don't throw him in the deep end, new club 'n' all.

 

May is an obvious in. I'd like Petty in as well...  together with Lewis, to General our defense, and knit it together.  Our back-line atmo, is in transition... as is the team, with the rule changes.  We need Lewis's experienced mind, at times like this.

Petty might be ready, surely as ready as Omc is.  Frosts upside is better than OMC's... when we have May in the side.   May makes OMc expendable.

Nope.  'TBA'... not  'TBC' .

Joel Smith (groin) – TBA *   To be announced.
Aaron vandenBerg (foot) – TBA *...    2 weeks to unload him,  then,  IF he settles down,  another 2 weeks or more to reload him,  before he plays a limited time game at Casey ... count it as 6 weeks.

So Jones and Viney are both unfit and missed most of the pre-season, but Jack gets a rest and Jones has to slog it at Casey. Right. Ok.

Not sure where or how they would fit him into the side, but if Keilty has a good game in tomorrow’s VFL practice match I’d could see him come in for a chop out for Max. 

Fingers crossed boys.

Id play him down back to replace Oscar. Surely he can't be any worse??

I’d like to think but there’s no way he’s playing down back with May and others to come in, he will have to find a spot as a FWD/Ruck

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE POINTY END by The Oracle

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition t

    TAMING THE LIONS by George On The Outer

    With nine finals debutants in the side, the Melbourne Football Club had a daunting assignment ahead of it in the First Qualifying Final — to overcome the competition’s highest scoring side, the Brisbane Lions. In the end, the Demons accomplished the task by putting the bite on their opponents on their way to taming the Lions and recording a 33 point win that propelled them into one the two Preliminary Finals of 2021.   It was one of those debutants, Luke Jackson, who put the bite in more

    RETURN TO NEVERLAND by Whispering Jack

    The greatest Demon A HIGHWAY OF DEMONS by Whispering Jack CHAPTER SIXTEEN - RETURN TO NEVERLAND  I have a six year old grandson who recently took up the family tradition of following the Demons. He had his first taste of the game a few years ago when he went to the “G” with his parents to watch the 107-point massacre of Carlton and he went to another game in the following season which was also a W for the Dees. But his appetite for the club has grown exponentially this year and wh

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position. In a remarkable game, it all came down to Max having to kick the winning goal after the final siren, something which s

    SKIN THE CATS by Whispering Jack

    The task ahead for the Demons as they wend their way down the Princes Freeway to Geelong on Saturday night will be to skin the Cats. For them to come away with the points from this game would mark an historic occasion for the club as it will finish on top of the ladder for the first time since its last premiership year, 1964. And it was in that year, that a trip to Corio Bay to meet the reigning premiers in Round 12, was one of the catalysts for Melbourne’s surge to the flag. It was a top o

    REACH FOR THE STARS by George on the Outer

    It was a game of great significance for the Melbourne Football Club. A win would see them keep top spot on the ladder with one round remaining. To achieve top place in the Round for Reach when we are all inspired to “Be Like Jim” and reach for the stars was a great way of honouring one of our heroes. All the better given that it was done by way of an emphatic 41 point win against Adelaide! It is worth remembering that, but for the umpiring mistake in the previous encounter with the Crows, t

    TICKETS PLEASE by The Oracle

    A lot of water has passed under Princes Bridge in the five years since Melbourne last met Adelaide on the MCG. The Crows were riding high at the time while the Demons were mid-table and scrambling for a win to stay in the race for the finals. The 30,000 fans who had tickets to the game were thoroughly entertained by a close, high scoring affair that ended in tears for fans of the home team. Not even an eight-goal second term could help them.   Times have changed.    In the fi

    ELECTRIFYING by George On The Outer

    What more can they throw at the Demons of 2021? Covid restrictions, hubs, aircraft circling between airports before landing for games and now a match stopped for 30 minutes to give a flagging opponent its second wind? To date, none of those distractions has swayed the team from their winning objectives. The game against West Coast in Perth can be marked on their report card as another positive outcome after yet another test. There was much at stake for both sides.  Melbourne had t

    When the combatants that are due to face off on Monday night at Optus Stadium last met, it was 11 days after the World Health Organization had declared the Covid19 outbreak a global pandemic. In Australia, the first cases had just come to light, including visiting US actors Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson, the toilet paper panic was in full flight and the world was starting to reel in anticipation of impending disaster.
