Gus and Fritsch have been poor but everyone else is looking pretty sharp. We’re in this up to our necks.

Best we’ve played all year. Which says a lot. Happy with that.

Gus poor, umps poor, Oskar trying to do a bit too much.

Lovely work through the middle of the ground for Hunty's goal, and TMac was looking good early.

Gus must be injured. Two weeks he has looked out of it. Plus he isn’t playing on the ball which is suspicious. 

Luckily I think Jones has been very good on the ball

Minus goals via dumb frees and easy missed shots should be 4 goals up.

Where was this team in the prelim last year?

We're still butchering it going forward (although lot less), but wow look at the hunger, the 2nd efforts, the bodies around the ball.

That Clarry chain for the goal from Hunt was the best I've seen all year.

If we can maintain this for (only) 3 more qtrs, and convert forward chances, we've got a real chance.

What a sweet feeling it would be the beat the Eagles over there with our seconds! (no disrespect to the boys out there, I speak only from the perspective of our starting squad).

You need to pencil in 4-8 goals to West Coast from dodgy bias frees. So essentially we need to be a 10 goal better side to ensure a win.

Why Pruess is not playing is beyond me... i cant see any decent reason to suggest he would not be a huge asset up forward the way we bring the ball in tonight and as an assist to Maxy rucking up forward.

The more i watch the more it needs to be Pruess for Smith.  I'm not saying Smith won't play some sort of role later in the match and might even kick the winner or be involved in the winning play but Pruess offers the marking/rucking ability as well as a very difficult / unusual match up that would worry the Coaster's back 6 and set the cat amongst the pigeons.  Jeffy would be happier too IMO and grow another leg with Andre throwing his weight around.

Positives: best I’ve seen us play for a while. 

Negatives: still insanely wasteful going forward. Although this time is much more to do with inaccuracy. Tom, Petracca, Garlett really needed to nail their shots.

Aliens will look back 200 million light years from now upon a scorched Earth, recovering a scarred but intact drive from the server upon which Demonland was co hosted and after reconstructing the data in zero time will be positively scratching their 16 heads with one of their 4 shhhlongs in outright bemusement at this Thompson-like stream of consciousness

Umpires making things difficult so far with separate interpretations of holding the ball for each team!

Baker has only had three touches, but two of them were absolutely sublime kicks on the run that hit difficult targets.  If he can get it  more often he'll be a weapon.

Jones and Tommy have started well. Even Gawn looks better. Brayshaw is falling over and fumbly. 

A good start. You would take a 1/4 time lead. Just hope we can keep it up and make use of our shot on goal. 

Petracca has been around long enough that he should have kicked that goal. Need to be better. Yes that goal on t e run helped but he needs to stand up.

    PANTSED BY THE PIES by George on the Outer

    A 41 point loss to Collingwood, combined with yet another meagre output from the Melbourne forwards, saw the Demons pantsed by the Collingwood in the Queens Birthday match. For the nth week in a row, Melbourne failed to produce a score that would trouble most sides - it’s inaccuracy alone was again enough to seal the outcome. If that final score of 7.15 were 15.7, the game would have been very different. That sort of output was exactly a repeat of the previous week against Adelaide, when fo

    TURNAROUND by KC from Casey

    It is truly amazing what a difference eight days can make in the life and times of a football club. It was a little over a week ago that the Casey Demons side were literally crushed into submission by the Werribee Tigers at Avalon Airport Oval. The losing margin in that game was not huge but the way they struggled to produce and cohesion in their play was obvious for all to see.  On Sunday at Casey Fields as part of heritage week, the team wore the Springvale FC jumper and made its own turn

    TEN YEARS AFTER by Whispering Jack

    There are many who would argue that Melbourne’s current woes go back a full decade to their Queens Birthday engagement of 2009 when the Demons selected a young VCE student Jack Watts to make his debut on the MCG in front of what was expected to be the club’s biggest crowd for a game described as the club’s “grand final in June”. That was the way of the world for the Dean Bailey coached Demons. The critics were skeptical of Melbourne’s decision to put a wet behind the ears schoolboy (albeit

    TOP END HEADING SOUTH by George on the Outer

    The Demons headed north for their annual game in Darwin, but the disappointing outcome could only mean they are heading south with the all too familiar failings happening again. A Sam Weideman mark and kick for goal with only 30 seconds remaining in the match could have won it for the Demons, but the kick slid sideways and the team went down by two points.  Sam may have been devastated, but the fact that the team could only kick 1 goal 8 behinds in the final quarter lays the blame at the fe

    MAYDAY by KC from Casey

    There’s not very much that can be said of the lacklustre performance of the Casey Demons at Avalon Airfield Oval against the Werribee Tigers on Saturday other than that it was woeful. There were however, a few small rays of hope for Demon fans, the main one being the display of defender Steven May from injury and to a lesser extent, Kade Kolodjashnij’s return after two months recovering from the effects of concussion. May was in stellar form down back, taking intercept marks, disposing of t

    POINT OF NO RETURN by the Oracle

    Conventional wisdom says that a club reaches the point of no return in the AFL competition if it has won less than four matches at the mid point of the season.  What this means for Melbourne is that in order for it to remain in the race for a top-eight position, it must start winning games now. Moreover, It's not enough to win the next game but it must also start stringing wins together to make up for its deficit in both wins and percentage.  With so much at stake there will be no excu

    A REAL DOWNER by KC from Casey

    When Sam Weideman kicked his third goal at the midpoint of the second quarter of Casey’s game at Downer Oval , Point Gellibrand on Sunday, he put his team 26 points ahead of the goalless Seagulls. Buoyed by the return from injury of Weideman and a number of other AFL-listed Melbourne players including Jordan Lewis, Mitch Hannan, and Jay Kennedy Harris and an impressive start to Jake Lever’s second game on return from his ACL surgery, the Demons were seemingly on top of the world. Lewis and

    ANOTHER GIANT PROBLEM by George on the Outer

    On top of its injury problems Melbourne ran into an “in-form” GWS Giants at the MCG in a game which, apart from a final quarter junk-time spree served to highlight the club’s current problems. There’s a virtually non-existent forward line; a plethora of VFL standard players, who might be getting plenty of game experience but most will simply not be up to AFL standard; an inability to kick straight and an ability to waste simple opportunities so that they mustered up only one goal in the fir

    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,
