GAMEDAY: Rd 02 vs Geelong

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

*Pun unintended*

Just an amazing story first off for Jay & getting a game 16 days after being added to an AFL list - We all wish him well.. 

just had a chat to a member of the “inner circle” whom tells me it was revealed yesterday that he was brought in to play a lock down FWD role inside 50 to replace Spargo, perhaps meaning Hunt stays back or at times they perform a double pressure role but either way I think it’s exciting to know that may be the role he’s been brought in to play!!!

Can’t wait for the bounce back effort this week - should be a cracking WIN 😎

2nd week in and we're already redeeming ourselves.
Bodes well for the season.

I was about to post the same.

Geelong (and most of the competition) are rubbish.

The last few years the competition has been the poorest in living (my) memory.  Geelong may well win tonight, but it won't change the fact they're just another ordinary team.

Agree, the talent is stretched pretty thin with 18 clubs, can't believe the AFL are talking about expanding the competition further! So many state league quality players getting a game these days that wouldn't have 10-15 years ago.

Any chance of a late change given the condtions?

I don't see the need to play all 3 of May, Frost and OMac against a forward line that at most will have Hawkins and Ratagoluea. In fact, I don't see the need to play all 3 regardless of conditions and opposition. I'd personally leave OMac out, but it's a flip of the coin between him and Frost.

OMac copped a bad corky early last week and couldnt walk post game. Expect improvement this week.

Could you let me know what you had for breakfast GCD

Probably MDMA. Not matter how much you take it starts to wear off midway through the third.

Thought Geelong looked really quick last week against the Pies and I can’t see us getting anywhere near them tonight.

Would love to be surprised and this team often does surprise us, whether that be good or bad, but just can’t see it tonight after the way we played last week.

Hoping for big improvements from our most important players. Go Dees.

Well done to the melbourne fans travelling down to geelong. It's going to be cold, wet and miserable. But it will be fantastic if we could get the win. 

I expect to see a massive response tonight especially from our experienced players who were terrible last week. 

The weather might be pretty poor as well.

I always think we're a chance, no matter the circumstances, but I feel that even tonight might be a little bit beyond us.  That's simply to do with our preparation and overall fitness levels.  I think the Cats are more advanced than us and, on their home deck, will be a tough proposition.

May and KK are handy additions to the side, but I'm not expecting a huge output from either of them just yet.  It will take time for them to gel with the side and, even though they will improve us by simply being in the side, it will be a few games before we see that influence.

All I want is a better effort, for longer, than last weekend.  Going 0-2 isn't the end of the world.

Sounds delightful BBO but i'm having my own pre-game experience far away, sitting on my balcony with a cheese  and salami platter and some appropriate liquid refreshments, listening to a live concert a couple of hundred meters away, featuring some oldies but goodies, including John Farnham, Darrel Braithwaite, Jon Stevens, Dragon and Thirsty Merc. And a lovely sunny day here.

The garden show- FMD - that's an afternoon of my life I won't get back.

Anyway I've just opened a Heathcote Shiraz to calm me down.

As to the footy.

Well the ducks will have to line up just right or the [censored] will [censored] on us from a great height.

We were clearly underdone last week and we've brought in May and KK who you would reckon could also be a gallop short. However, we will need May to play a good one and shut down .. probably Hawkins. If Frost lifts from his shocker last week, his athletic and running ability may do the job on Ratta - he will need to. If Ablett plays forward that will be up to Nev, who at least made an effort last week. All that going well, some drive from Hibbert would be handy.

Of course the best way to nullify the opps forward line is to keep the pill at our end. I reckon Max will find the opposition more to his liking and will lift. Clarrie and Brayshaw will need to get 30+ possies. Viney's fitness worries me but he's one of those blocks who can turn it on in unlikely circumstances. Jones is experienced and proud - he will lift.

Tmac and Weid must kick goals …. and Trac …. please play a blinder.

Pray for the ducks!

That doesnt surprise me.  Thought it was odd we would bring in Lockhart and KK when Hibberd and Hunt were in the side.

If Lockhart does play that role it is his to lose,  we need a small forward badly.  Would be nice if he could snag a few goals tonight.

    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

    It’s a crying shame that we happen to be playing against the resurgent St Kilda just as they have managed to overcome a rotten patch of form with an upsurge in momentum resulting from the sacking of its coach and the appointment of a new one.    The Saints had a purple patch at the start of the season winning four of their first five games (including the one against the sloppy and sluggish Demons in Round 5) before collapsing into the sink hole that led to them parting ways with coach Alan
