Changes v Gold Coast Suns

Recommended Posts

I know the cupboard is pretty bare in terms of depth so limited changes this week. However Fritsch and Lewis are both a mile off. Hore is slow and so we will struggle with both him and Lewis in the backline together.

I'm in QLD next week, and potential to get to Metricon

I've made no arrangements but what's the go with getting in? Assume you just roll up and walk through an unattended gate and take one of the many vacant seats??

Pretty much.... The parking is horrible and the public transport to the ground is pretty bad. Either you park at a close school which usually has a shuttle bus service to the ground or you get the train and then a bus in. If you're staying close enough ie Broadbeach I recommend just getting a cab.

The ticketing is pretty much behind the goals or level 2 general admission other seats are reserved seating you can pre purchase but level two is actually a very good viewing point at metricon. 

See you there :)

Changes...

Omac out Preuss in... 

keilty down back. And can rotate into the ruck if need be.

It'll get pretty duey once the sun goes down probably around 3 QT so I wouldn't imagine that would play a massive factor

No changes at this stage. Let’s see how they go up North then look to change it up on the 6 day break leading into the Perth trip. I’d like to see Preuss return for Eagles.

In: Pruess (only if really ready)

out: OMac.     Keilty takes OMacs place in defense.  If they only have one tall forward, then there are several possibilities

Fritsch didn't have his best game but that is the first time he has been below par. He always looks a level above those around him in terms of skill. As for Lewis, Goody has made his feelings on the subject very clear: His value as an organiser is worth the occasional clanger. Until May, Lever and Jetta come back I can't see him being dropped.

Only make changes if we have a best 22 player come back in. Preuss for keilty, although he probably should get a second look. Can't believe the calls for omac to go out on the back of 2 plays, O'Brien and Lewis kicked 1 goal between them and that was the direct result of Frost getting lost again, if he plays like that omac will only go out when may and lever are back

Seemed omac was out marked by Gunston a few times.

Can any locals shed light on the best PT options coming from Palm Beach/Currumbin for the day?

Unfortunately the GC train line only goes as far as varsity... So you will likely need to get a bus to varsity then a train to Nerang then a bus to metricon

No change other than for injury.

Saturday saw an improved effort and a win. Reward the team. 

Keilty to remain. Needs to build confidence and feel that he belongs. Same for Stretch.

Oscar?  Another chance and to be told to take the game on. 

We need to maintain core stability until we get some players back.

How many tall forwards do the Suns have?  if we can get away with playing just Frost down there with T Mac as an emergency tall defender , the change is an easy one

 

In   -   Preuss

Out - O McDonald

The spring of Keilty to help counter 2 metre Peter?

I like Preuss but Keilty was good, would prefer to give Preuss another week to recover.

Bring both Preuss and Keilty in ... drop OMac immediately ....

"Another chance". Really? How many 'chances' does this bloke get? What u see is what u get. He has reached his potential.Will never have the required physicality and attack on the ball required. Gifted more games than any other. Keilty goes to defence, Preuss in. Please!!

Would like to hope that Weid can force his way in.

He'll need 4 or five this afternoon with some solid relief rucking

That is worth a second of thought. Keilty must replace OMac; his one exposure showed enough to suggest quite strongly that with a ripper game or two under his belt, he will be an enormous asset. He learned, during the game against the Hawks and also teamed well. He's on the road to something interesting.

Totally agree. Keilty will make a marque and cement his role in the Team. Preuss - if ready to play - will be an asset in many ways.

Rather a trade for the Weed. He is not fully switched on, at best. Another OMac, I'm afraid.

I’m staggered that anybody could suggest that Declan Keilty should be dropped next week ahead of Oscar MacDonald.

After those pathetic efforts of Oscar that cost us 2 goals in the last quarter, I’m done with him.  The Club burnt Lynden Dunn to get games into Oscar and he looks like being a C Grader at best. 

Absolutely. A wasted jumper, week in, week out, year long, two years long, every time he plays, for that matter. Occupies enormous defensive resources to back up his predictable errors, flaws, weakness, lack of endeavour and snail's pace. ABSOLUTELY.

I would like to think we could beat WCE and Collingwood in coming weeks but I think there is about the same chance of the Weid filling your hope DJ.

    GIANT HEADACHE by The Oracle

    It seems so long ago that Melbourne took an unchanged line up into a game on the MCG against the Greater Western Sydney Giants and cleaned them up to the tune of 45 points.  In truth, the event occurred literally half a season ago in the final home and away round of the 2018 season and marked the Demons’ return to the finals with more triumphs to come in the weeks ahead. Of course, back then, it was the Giants who were wracked with injuries as they stumbled into the finals series facing the

    LANDSLIDE by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons enjoyed the better of their first half against Port Melbourne on Saturday but fell away badly after half time to lose by 43 points. The Borough enjoyed the early break with the game’s opening two goals but the Demons took control to go out to an 8 point lead at quarter time, an advantage that it held for most of the second term until a late goal to the visitors clawed the lead back to a point.  The Casey ruck of Braydon Preuss and Liam Wale-Buxton were on top for most

    SHOULD HAVE ... COULD HAVE by George on the Outer

    West Coast finally put the nail in the Demons 2019 season coffin with a 16 point win, but it was a game that Melbourne should have, could have, but didn’t win. Once again woeful, truly woeful work in the forward line, both kicking for goal and the lazy, cheap efforts of some let the side down. A solitary goal in the final quarter and only 9 goals from 24+ scoring opportunities was the costly difference in the game. The selectors, once again, made a critical error in not selecting

    SCREAM by Whispering Jack

    The Norwegian Expressionist artist Edvard Munch painted a number of versions of his famous work “Scream” and, every time my mind goes back to last year’s Preliminary Final at Optus Stadium between Melbourne and the West Coast Eagles, each and every one of them reverberates through my mind as if my head is being pummeled by a sledgehammer.  When I think of that half time scoreboard from that match showing West Coast at 10.9.69 to Melbourne 0.6.6, I feel like the man standing by the railing,

    NOT GAWN IN 60 SECONDS by George on the Outer

    You might recall a regular segment that once featured on the MFC website entitled, “Gawn in 60 Seconds”, in which Maxy would ask the hard questions of his teammates. However, there was no harder question asked than the one asked collectively of the whole team in the last 60 seconds of Saturday’s game against the Gold Coast Suns.  It was either follow me and my example or the Demons’ season, already hanging flimsily by huuua thread, would be truly “Gorn”.  It was at that stage when thos

    BOILOVER by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons caused the boilover of the season to date when they took on and beat the undefeated ladder leaders Essendon VFL by 41 points at Windy Hill.  The stunning result which was achieved with a season low of eight AFL-listed players, will surely kickstart the Demons’ ailing season after they lost their last two matches as a result of some poor third quarter fade outs against quality opposition. Casey got off to a great start with a mid-air soccer volley goal from Jimmy Munro

    LITTLE RAY OF SUNSHINE by Whispering Jack

    There would be very few among us who would have thought realistically at the start of the season that by the time Melbourne’s Round 8 trip to the Gold Coast came around, the visitors would not only be languishing in 16th place on the ladder, but also be sitting a game behind their hosts. In fact, had the Suns managed to goal late in their opening game against the Saints which they lost by a mere point, the gap between the two sides would have been even wider. Such has been the humiliation o

    UNDERDOGS by KC from Casey

    Thanks to the large injury list at Melbourne, the Casey Demons went into their fifth round clash with Footscray VFL as the underdogs and despite a courageous showing up to half time after conceding the game’s first four goals, their third quarter fade out saw them fall short against quality opposition for the second time in a week. Casey went into the game with only 9 AFL listers after Declan Keilty was called up to make his debut when Tim Smith was forced to pull out of the Melbourne team

    IN THE PINK by George on The Outer

    A five point victory against the eternal nemesis in Hawthorn, didn’t put the Demons back in the black for the 2019 season ... but rather, it added a touch of pink to their fortunes, now showing some sign of life after an underwhelming start to the year. And pink was the most appropriate colour for the side and the supporters, given this game was the annual “Pink Ladies” match.  And none more so than this proud Demon fan who turned up to add his support to the cause and his team at the same

    EASIER SAID THAN DONE by The Oracle

    There is no way of getting around the fact that Melbourne is the disappointment team of the AFL competition and, because it came into the season as a big top four fancy and now sits stone motherless last with a 1-5 win-loss record, it is fast becoming a laughing stock.  The only way in which the Demons can restore any sense of pride, let alone its rapidly diminishing hopes of making the finals is for it to overcome Hawthorn on Saturday in the replay of last year’s preliminary final.

    POINT CRASH by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons went down by the narrowest of margins to a strong Richmond VFL combination in the Round 4 game at Casey Fields on Saturday after a rushed behind  to the Tigers in the game’s dying moments broke the deadlock. In a low scoring game, Casey took the early ascendency after conceding the first goal and held their lead for most of the first half going into the sheds at the main break with an 8 point lead. The Demons were led in defence by key position players, Oscar McDonald

    THE LAST POST by George on the Outer

    The Last Post sounded out in memory of the fallen around a packed MCG at the Anzac Eve match against Richmond. The silence of the crowd assembled was in tribute to those who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country. But the Last Post was also an appropriate symbol of the finals aspirations now gone for the Melbourne Football club, after a mere six rounds of the 2019 Season.   How far has this team fallen!  From a Preliminary final contestant barely six months ago, to cellar dwelle
