Glad to see some of our out of form players like Jonesy, Viney, Trac and Hunt return to form tonight, even T & O Mac I thought started looking better as the game went on (though both were comming off a pretty low base).  Also good to see good games from emerging players Preuss and Hore, who I thought was pretty important for us.

I thought the Weid was pretty quite and had minor impact for most of the game, but did some really good stuff for us in the last quarter when it was there to be won.  That 50m goal was a sensational kick for goal under pressure and I thought he also did alot of other little things like tackles, a few good marks and knock on's in the last quarter.

Harmes was really good early when we were struggling a bit, as was Jones, who went on to play a great captains game, along with Viney to some degree.

This is the start of a new Era.

All embarrassing Hoodoos have now been broken. Sydney was the last team we hd not beaten for 9 years. We have also now won on everyone ground in the last 5 years except for Hobart.

Trac  needs to bring that mindset every game.  He was a bull tonight.

 

That attitude is the base,  he has to start from every week.

That attitude will bring him results week in, week out.....  because it will take him to the contests.... and it will bring the ball in his direction.

Loved Hunts two games up forward. Doesn’t get a heap of it, but he’s so damaging with his pressure and hits the scoreboard. Ticks all the boxes needed for the small/medium forward type player. He and Petracca really stood up tonight.

I'm with you.

Didn't sound like it...

i hope not. 

May wasn't ready for his first game in rednblue,  and he wasn't ready for the Cats game.   He sure as hell won't be ready for next week...  unless they want him injured, again.

Glad to see the end of the Swans once and for all. They can enjoy playing in front of crowds of 5000 now.

Bye, bye.

I am so proud of the boys tonight.  I've almost got a tear in my eye.  We've been smashed from pillar to post these last three weeks, some of it warranted, some of it over the top, and when the Swans got 20 odd points up you could argue that we were in big, big trouble.  

But we didn't panic.  We went back to playing the Melbourne way.  We hassled.  We tackled.  And by God we took our chances.  This was a modern Melbourne performance and you could almost sense, when we got up, that we weren't going to give it up.

The one person I want to single out is Nathan Jones.  Under the pump from all and sundry, he steps up to kick three crucial, captain's goals to help us win this game of footy.  How bloody good is it?  Right the man off at your peril.

I also thought Marty Hore, another to cop it on here, really stood up down back, particularly early.  Also to Frosty who did a pretty good job on Buddy!

But stuff it.  How good is it, everyone?  I love this club.  We have won this game when, with the injuries and the history against the Swans, we had no right to win it.  As I said earlier, it's shades of the '98 game over in Perth.

Kudos to the coaches, players and everyone else involved for lifting and keeping our season well and truly alive.

And I'm proud that I never lost the faith!  DEMONS!

Ahem Clarry Choo Choo sensational coped two extreme hard hits and created  stellar ball movement with telling possessions! SUPERSTAR!!

Immensely proud of the boys. I have been a Jones knocker of late and I’d like to apologise. Yes, he made errors again tonight and looked slow at times, but he put us on his back at the same time and kicked captain’s goals. 

Things clicked tonight in patches. We busted Our guts. Blokes put their body on the line. Hunt was magnificent. He has found a spot. Leave him there. Let him chase and attack and he will bob up and kick a couple a game. 

Let us go on with it next week. Must build on it. 

Well said.

He has been slaughtered in the first few weeks by our useless delivery,  going inside F50...  and also TMc's poor showings.

Preuss took some of the heat off Weide and TMc tonight... and Gawn as well.   This imo showed,  and helped all of them.

He played alright tonight DV8. Stats aside, he did chase, tackle and contest the ball in dispute and hit the scoreboard.

Got to bring this effort every week.

So I broke my phone when I saw Oscar got out marked by Reid in the 2nd quarter... 

Missed the rest of the game, I take it the game when in an upwards trajectory from the point of me breaking my phone...

I’m reserving judgement on Preuss the forward. One goal was plucked out of his arse on the boundary from the ruck, the other a long kick that a competent defence would have touched. Don’t get me wrong, quite happy to take two goals and enjoyed his physical play, just not quite ready to crow yet.

    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? As a consequence, the person re

    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.

    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
