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????

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.

People complaining about Jones and Viney doing nothing after 1 game at Casey yet wanting KK to come in if he gets through 1 practice match?!

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?

    THE TORRENS THUMPING 2.0 by George on the Outer

    Once again the banks of Adelaide’s Torrens River witnessed the Melbourne Football Club handing out another on-field thumping to its opponent. This time the hapless victim was North Melbourne and given it was only the club’s second win against them since 2007, it was a very satisfying outcome. The Demons got off to a slow start once again, looking listless from their four day break, a situation that wasn’t helped by Sam Weideman and Christian Petracca missing easy set shots. At the first bre

    THE 2020 EQUATION by Whispering Jack

    The 2020 equation is simple for the Melbourne Football Club – it must keep winning and it must take some big scalps during the second half of the season without dropping games against the lesser lights. The Demons have gone down this season to the 1st, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th teams on the ladder including twice by less than a goal in games that could easily have gone the other way. Against that, they have beaten 11th, 13th, 14th and 18th and though they thumped the Crows during the week, the

    THE TORRENS THUMPING by George on the Outer

    THE TORRENS THUMPING - LEAVING THE DEMONS BEHIND That headline might lead a reader to think that Melbourne had lost badly in Adelaide but no!  It was actually the MFC which left it’s demons from the previous week behind as it applied the blowtorch to the Crows in the final quarter of their match at the Adelaide Oval and went on their merry way to record a 51 point win before their biggest crowd of the year (even if they were mainly hostile). Much had been made in the media about t

    STATE OF DEESASTER by the Oracle

    Melbourne’s circus caravan rolls into Adelaide on Wednesday night, an event that will put shivers up the spine of every Crows’ supporter as they look directly into the face of disaster. The flakey Demons left their home town a month ago and proceeded to rough up the Gold Coast Suns and Hawthorn in Sydney before moving on to the sunny Queensland where they missed by a bee’s diaphragm against the more or less local second-on-ladder Brisbane Lions. Then, they had to butter up against the top t

    OVERPOWERED by George on the Outer

    In a dismal display against Port Adelaide, Melbourne showed it had learnt nothing from their previous week’s loss to Brisbane. Port, in contrast, after losing to St.Kilda, addressed their failings, and as a result made the Demons look like a second-rate side.  Melbourne failed to score a goal in the first quarter, and the first time it seriously troubled the goal umpire was saved until a minute before half-time.  Did it get any better?  No with their meagre three goals for the sec

    DESPERATION OF THE MOMENT by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne’s recent win against Hawthorn highlighted how important Max Gawn’s ruck domination is for the team. A week later however, that domination continued but its effect was totally blunted by the Brisbane Lions midfield and, as a consequence, what could have been an easy win over a leading AFL contender turned into a disappointing but close loss and a sense of desperation now looms over the club as the halfway mark of the season approaches. This week’s opponent in Port Adelaide also und

    THE FOUR POINT FAIL by George on the Outer

    Melbourne went down by 4 points in a thrilling finish against Brisbane, but they failed by more than the 4 points.     They also failed to score the 4 points necessary to keep them in the race for the finals, and now find themselves sitting 6 points outside the top 8, but effectively 2 games outside (even though they have a game in hand).   The Demons had more than enough opportunities to win.  Six very easy shots on goal failed to bother the goal umpire with a major and ultimate

    NORTH OF THE BORDER PART 2 by The Oracle

    The travelling COVID circus moves north of the border yet again and, unless at some time in the near future, Papua New Guinea opens its borders, this could be the last time this phenomenon happens. And as fortune would dictate, the resurgent Demons are walking directly into the sights of the locals from the bright lights of Brizvegas to Carrara - the scene of some long-forgotten (and deservedly so) battles with one of the Lions’ former incarnations, namely, the Brisbane Bears.

    ON THE NOSE by George on the Outer

    One of the Hawthorn Football Club’s valued sponsors is Azep® Nasal Spray and given the thrashing handed out to the Hawks in today’s game, it would appear that they need a huge supply of the sponsor’s product because they are simply on the nose. This condition was caused by the sheer dominance of the Demons, led magnificently by skipper Max Gawn with 27 hitouts and 22 disposals including two clearances. Around him in the middle were Christian Petracca with 29 touches, Clayton Oliver (also on

    THE PREMIER LEAGUE by Whispering Jack

    So the new man under the pump is Clarko, which demonstrates how sad but predictable the football media is these days. In an age where each AFL team’s form can be topsy turvy and unpredictability is the order of the day, the coach of a team that has played five out of the top six teams from the previous season and sits with a 3/3 win loss record is this week’s whipping boy.   This comes admittedly on the back of a bad fortnight from the Hawks who in recent years have exhibited an enormous

    SUNSMART by George on the Outer

    If you don’t want to get sunburnt, you follow the Sunsmart rules.  Melbourne took the advice and with their season on the line, avoided getting burnt by the Gold Coast Suns, with a gripping 17 point win. It was a match that could have gone either way, with the sides within a kick of each other for all but the final minutes of the final quarter. Melbourne had stretched the lead earlier in the game to 18 points, but that quickly evaporated to a neck and neck race to the finish.  Finally,

    NORTH OF THE BORDER by The Oracle

    The outcomes of Melbourne’s recent games against the Gold Coast Suns are a pretty good barometer of how the teams are faring. The Demons easily accounted for them twice in 2018, the last win being a 96-point cakewalk at the MCG in Round 20 when they scored a whopping 21.17.143 to 7.5.47. Ironically, Melbourne’s score of 9.3.57 at the first break that afternoon is leading its highest score for a full game to date this year by 3 points. In those days, they played fast, skillful football, moved th
