Demonland

Changes vs West Coast

Recommended Posts

With May, Lever and Jetta already out, losing Hibberd and Lewis will be difficult to cover. Looks like Fritch and Hunt to the backline.

R. Gawn, Brayshaw, Oliver

I/C. Harmes, ANB, J.Wagner, Jones

Hibberd out is going to hurt he was just starting to find something.

Hoping Melk gets up, need to go with the mobile forward line and get the ball in quick and low locking it in. Wouldn't mind big Pruess giving McGovern something to think about by making him earn one

Hibberd out injured. ANB will come in for him as he's the next in line and we don't really have any defenders left uninjured unless we go with Petty.

Keilty out for Smith or Preuss, both kicked goals today and will make us better: Keilty has had no real impact. 

Melksham and Lewis may not come up, if they don't no idea would come in.

According to commentators we had 6 listed afl players for the 2nd's this weekend.  The rest are injured.

So its slim pickings.

We need a smart game plan going into 50.  what worked the last 2 times and even the GC was not kicking it in high, it was almost ground balls to take their markers out of the play.

The other is shutting down darling, when he plays well  they generally play well.

Either one its my 1 live game a year so hopefully we go for three win H&A wins in the west in a row.

For the love of god T Mac cannot be moved back to defence next week. 3 out of our 8 goals tonight. Maybe that’s the confidence boost he needed. We’ve stemmed haemorrhaging the other way lately, we need to recapture scoring power.

In : Preuss, ANB

Out: Hibbo, Keilty

Petty’s form has been good. OMac has to go.

Totally agree chook. Oscar just doesn't man up and keep his opponent accountable.

He completely missed 3 spoils tonight.

Needs to go back to vfl and find his form.

West Coast will monster him if he plays.

Been calling for this one for a few weeks but time to try Sparrow back...

Doesn't get enough ball for a mid but has attributes that might be better suited back.

With Jetta, Lewis & Hibberd out nows the time to try it.

In anyone who is fit and able. Only 6 MFC listed players available for Casey today (and still won). Hibberd definitely out and doubt on Lewis and Melksham doesn’t leave a lot. Only outs are the injuries just for stability

Coach loathe to make unforced changes but Pruess was BOG today at Casey.

If we move Hunt to the backline, I will legit chuck a fit. He is our best forward this year by far.

Got myself into a corporate box next Friday night with all the fruit.

Whatever happens, I’ll end up inebriated. 

If I recall my last visit to Optus Stadium, that was the only positive that came out of it. $900 to get drunk, get a Max Gawn cookie, and watch the end of what was really a very good thing while it lasted.

Can not stand this sort of comment.

Sure, don't rate a player. But to hope a player who goes and out and gives everything they have for their team (my team - and i assume yours Martin) is injured and is not up for selection for the next game is pathetic. I hate it. With a passion.

I have always hated demons fans who bag our own. And i have called out many at games over the last four decades.

Demonland is like a virtual outer. And like the outer if you are are true fan there are lines you don't cross. And the number one line you don't cross is satisfaction when one of ours is hurt. And you crossed it.

I have had no issue with  your posts Martin. And in my nearly 10 years on Demonland i have ignored a very small number of posters. But  in the immortal words of L7 you have just made my [censored] list

Regardless of who's out, we have to replace like for like. If it's Lewis and Hibberd, then we've got to find a way of either bringing in two backs, or playing others in those positions.

Given that Lever, May and Jetta are already out, the cupboard is getting very very bare. With Hibberd gone, it'll mean that 4 of our first choice back 6 are out.

No team could cover having their entire backline out.   We are depleted.

We would need a 1998 like Perth  miracle to win next week....    but never say never.

West Coast will kick 30 goals against that backline.

    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
