Changes vs Geelong Rd 2

Recommended Posts

I think Hore struggled to find the pace of the game. His decision making wasn't quick enough. With a run of 3 or few games I think he could improve this and be a decent contributor, not great, but I saw a few things we might be able to work with

hore looked very toey early - got better as the game wore on, i thought, which is funny, as that's when the backline was most over-run

god our midfield was pathetic putting pressure on the pear as they sauntered thru the middle of the ground

Would like to see Petracca dropped for the best small forward of Chandler or Bedford.

He currently adds very little to our slow side. Struggles to kick goals, never creates space.

May comes in for Frost and I hope that’s the last we see of him getting a game for the seniors. 

Lewis for Hore

I think Pruest might get a game on the back of Gawn getting roughed up, it won’t surprise me if that becomes a theme for poor Maxy this year. Maybe Sparrow for Pruest? 

Salem is the only one I could honestly say played a complete game, his class was a cut above. Everyone else should be given a swift kick up the bum starting with Petracca, it’s time he delivered.

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.

Considering he was in the VFL up until round 21 or so last year, it's probably wise and healthy from a list perspective that we haven't automatically booked him in to play every week, but are looking at that position as interchangeable with some other players, form permitting. Having said that, there's no way i'd be dropping him after just one match.

Again, unless we’ve been told a big fat lie, Smith is out for 4-6 weeks WERRIDEE.

No way Pruce will play, needs fitness and unlikely to play unless oppo play two rucks or if Gawn injured. Pruce is not the answer to what happened yesterday.

May in will help. U can't play Frost and Hunt on the backline. Either send Frost 2 Casey or try him on the wing. He isn't a backman.  Hunt provided one of the only 2 highlights 4me. When he dashed out of defense took 2 bounces and  kicked long 2 set up a  goal. The other was Weed's pack mark & 50m goal, 2 encouraging signs in an extremely disappointing & somewhat predictable day.Jones needs 2 lift & inspire. That dropped uncontested mark & subsequent fumble that resulted in a clearance 2 them from a TMAC pass when Tom shoul've gone goal ward demonstrated 2 me that Jones is on the way out. Don't understand y Goodwin played Wagner & Sparrow. We had no run & Port they made us look second rate. Does Goodwin have a plan B or C????

I thought it was a test?

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

F: MELKSHAM, T.MCDONALD, HUNT 

FOLL: GAWN, VINEY, BRAYSHAW

IC: JONES, NEAL-BULLEN, PREUSS, JORDON

Horrible no height CP too small for CHF can play FF for periods though and you would not put Corey and Tom on flanks together on one line.

KK not at back pocket and needs at least 2/3 games to toughen and match  fitness.

Pruess not necessary unless we can  rest Maxy up forward or drift down back.

Main players need to lift Captains and young stars plus Angus needs to concentrate on delivery he is wasteful.

Pruce, Pruess, why not Proose ?

So, I know a long time Dees fan who usually gets pretty reliable info.  He's heard there's a good chance vandenBerg will be out for the season.  

The two I'm most excited about coming in are May and Kolodjashnij.  Kolodjashnij brings exactly what we need and what was missing yesterday, outside run and metres gained.  Some nice finishing also wouldn't go astray.

Will Kolodjashnij be ready ?  How would I or anyone posting here know.  But his endurance is one of the best in the club and the sooner he's in the better.

That's not flash re: AVB. He looked in ripping nick during both JLT games. To potentially lose him for the season is a massive blow.

No idea after that may for frost is a no brainer, but we just look so slow Geelong will spank us if we play like that again, I can’t see us getting our [censored] together for a few weeks as we just look so underdone, problem is by then the damage could be done and we might never catch up

Posted similar, I don't have any intel but if the same injury has flared (and that's what Misson is suggesting) then that's a big problem as they went through a very long thorough rehab to get him back up.

Let's hope it is a minor setback as otherwise it could well be career at the crossroads.

Poor guy can’t catch a break. 

Is it a return of the same injury or something new?

    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?

    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.

    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
