Round 4 Non MFC games

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)
  • Tigers are without their big 4: Dusty, Rance, Riewoldt, Cotchin.  They play Port at Adelaide oval.  If Port play their 'control' game they will win. 
  • Crows dropped Gibbs.  Big statement by the club.
  • Would be handy for the Saints to beat Hawks and Bulldogs to beat Pies but can't see it happening.
  • Sad to see Tyson dropped by North.
  • Hoping for Suns win over Blues and Lions over Ess, partly to see the Qld teams do well and partly because as I loathe the self-entitled, arrogance of Ess and Blues.

Results this weekend will go a long way to shaping the final 8.

Can’t see the Dogs playing as bad as they did last week, the scoreboard certainly flattered them in the end against the Suns. If they can stick with the Pies for the first 3 quarters they might be able to pinch it. Pies 1-3, will continue a great start to the round.

wins by North and Carlton would benefit us.

A win by Port over Richmond would make life interesting.

Collingwood v Bulldogs could be a great tussle.

Freo over Eagles would also make my weekend

Funny what one win can do. I have been checking all the other games this weekend to see who I think we want to win to ease our climb up the ladder.

Get a grip man we have won one game!

same here OD.

I think we need a chaos season (like our gameplan) where upsets are many creating a virtual log jam from top to bottom. 😎

3 or 4 games separating top from bottom at the bye would be good.

So starting 1-3 do we need a really even season from the other sides  or do we need the first three to lose very few games ( the ones when we play them excluded )? Or perhaps both, a very even season except the top couple?

Hey really  all we need to do to is keep winning that solves everything.

So I have to confess, until yesterday I’d been sooking so hard about our crap start to the year that I had hardly paid any attention at all to the other games. I took a look at the ladder today and with a few exceptions, like Carlton being where they belong, it appears to be upside down. Brisbane 3-0, what the...? Freo 2-1? And a great deal of last year’s 8 have had slow starts. Going to be really interesting to see if by round 10, the early form has continued.

Most people would have said Collingwood have been playing well but if they lose tonight they will be 1 and 3. Same for Tigers if they lose against Port.

We have been terrible but we're not out of it by any means IF.....

I like Bullies @ the line -23.5. They always play well against the pies.

Doggies vs Pies is a pox game. These two are appalling. And I thought we were a fumbling team that turned over like a pancake!

Terrible game.   Just terrible.  Most games this year have been poor, must be teams trying to get used to that 666 rule.

Dogs phart around too much on half forward line. They should be in front. The filth don't have their game anywhere near last years. Hopefully that remains.

    THE BRIGHT SIDE by Whispering Jack

    I don’t often agree with Dermott Brereton but he came close to the mark last week when he labelled Melbourne a “team of downhill skiers” that works much harder offensively than it does defensively.  And he was looking at the bright side of the team’s game plan. That proposition has been clear since before the season started. It was obvious from the first JLT game against Richmond when the team leaked multiple goals in a short space of time as players gave metres away to opposition forwards.

    CASEY VS THE AUSSIES by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons played an exhibition match against an Australian Under 19 team at the MCG on Easter Saturday but the game was played with more than half an eye on the fact that whilst their senior counterpart was taking part in their AFL Round 5 game against St Kilda later that afternoon, they also had an assignment just four days later against Richmond.  The team, with 10 AFL Demons, opened strongly and dominated the first half to lead by four goals at the main break before taking most of

    EASTER BUNNIES by George on the Outer

    Easter is supposed to be an occasion of hope, revival and ultimately celebration.  But for the Demon supporters it was none of these as yet again their team was made Easter Bunnies by the Saints. With the exception of Christian Salem, there was not a single winner on the ground.  The danger for the Demons was giving the Saints their own hope and enthusiasm by conceding early goals.  That is exactly what happened in the first quarter, although with some ridiculous frees from the umpires clos

    MARCHING IN by The Oracle

    The most embarrassing loss of the 2018 season (perhaps aside from the Preliminary Final) for Melbourne was the one it suffered in Round 15 against lowly St Kilda. The Demons came into the game as a red hot favourite but were embarrassed by the Saints' speed and willingness to take the contest right up to them for virtually the full four quarters. It was a defeat that they were to bemoan for the remainder of the season. Their arrogance in going into the game and taking an opponent lightly was a c

    RELENTLESS by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons returned to the winning list with an emphatic 54 point victory over a limp North Melbourne VFL combination at Casey Fields on Saturday. Smarting from last week’s thrashing at Box Hill, the Demons came out of the blocks intent on redeeming themselves for their embarrassing start to the 2019 campaign.  After a brief early bout of inaccuracy, the goals flowed as a result of relentless pressure applied to the visitors who were constantly forced into error. The pleasing thi

    TO A “T” by George on the Outer

    Thursday night football - not something Melbourne FC are accustomed to doing, especially after barely garnering a Friday night game for years. Yet with this opportunity, the Demons soundly beat the Swans at the SCG and put their season back on Track. This was not only a game of mental toughness, since the Demons had so far failed to win a game in 2019 and faced possibly a season ending prospect of 0-4, should they have failed in Sydney.  History was against them, and Buddy Frankli

    SWANSONG by Whispering Jack

    They said that in 2019, the Melbourne Football Club was going to take its game to another level but we were never prepared for the level the club is reaching as it approaches the fourth round of the season holding up the entire AFL ladder in a match that could be its swansong for the year.    We were meant to be premiership contenders, not playing off for a wooden spoon which is what will be the case unless there is a sudden and dramatic turn around in our fortunes!    And whilst there

    A DAY TO FORGET by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons started the 2019 in unimpressive fashion with a 62 point loss to the  Box Hill Hawks at Box Hill City Oval. It was a total contrast to their 2018 opening when they monstered the Coburg Lions but the circumstances were entirely different. Twelve months ago, the Demons were able to go into the match with a large contingent of AFL listed players while yesterday, they went into the game with 12 Melbourne players, mostly inexperienced.  They were also hampered by the AFL sc

    2019 IS NOT 2018 by George on the Outer

    Seems like an obvious statement doesn’t it?   Yet the MFC coaching staff/team seem to have forgotten to change their calendars on January 1st. A 3 goal loss against the equal bottom side in the competition and now with a 0-3 record for the current season, it should be obvious that things have changed from 2018.  Not so on the field, as Melbourne continue to play the style which got them to a Preliminary final.   Once again the Demons saw 20 goals scored against them for the game.

    THE NIGHT OF THE TORTOISES by The Oracle

    Friday night sees two clubs of which a great deal was expected in 2019, facing off in the battle of the slow starting tortoises. Both have had calamitous starts to the season and are sitting at 0-2. One of them will, by the end of the evening, be seeing their season slipping away from their grasp.   Both clubs are playing without confidence and without purpose. The Demons, who had the best-performed attack of all clubs last year, managed to convert 73 entries inside their forward 50 metre a

    THE CAT RUN by George on the Outer

    It truly became a “Cat Run” with an 80 point win to the home side, an outcome that had us wondering what happened to the Demons of 2018 when they got to a Preliminary final on the basis of their “brand” of contested football?   Well that part hasn’t changed any, since the likes of Clayton Oliver can win the ball 44 times in a game including 15 clearances, Angus Brayshaw racks up 33 touches with Jack Viney chipping in for 27 of this own.  In the ruck Max Gawn had 53 hitouts on the night, and

    REDEMPTION? by the Oracle

    How much should we be making out of Melbourne’s opening round loss on its home ground against an unfancied team from interstate in Port Adelaide?  The game was barely over before the excuses were coming out that about the lack of preparation of the team, the fact that some players were playing injured or unfit and unable to handle the humidity and the heat, the team’s lack of run and spread, the lack of experience and having too many key players injured or (in the case of Steven May) suspen
