Must be a bad moon rising. We may get a win tonight (and I hope we do)...doesn't really matter over the course of this season. Even if we fluke enough wins and make the 8 this year it's not going to be pretty. I'm already in reload mode for 2020. If we can get key players back fit and healthy and draft smartly then watch out. Until then.

Call me an Old Fart if you like, but I reckon he looks SOOO much better with that respectable haircut!  He really looked like a Ninja with that mop he used to have!  From an unkempt kid, he now looks like a man!  Besides, he'll now be more streamlined, so no excuses for a great debut!  LOL

Garbage selection as per usual MFC Pruess has done everything right in every game he has played! Strategy should be 

Play Pruess get Max to drop back into hole of WC Forward line and to Ruck where needed!!

The Heartbreaker?? Sheeit too sloooow.. defenders in Turbo and Petty ... wont be pretty

Another game sans injuries Lost at selection IMV

It AINT Rocket science

Good luck to The Ginga Ninja in first game!

Kind of ironic, last time we went over there our season was on the line, circumstances couldn't have been any more different. Not sure what I honestly expected back then but I think we were all shocked at the result.

Things have gone down hill since then.

Not sure what to expect tonight.

I am taking my son for his first AusKick tonight. Alot has changed since my first kick of the footy through to his;

8 (unfortunately I think that's about to be 9) Prime Minister's

10 Melbourne coaches (even sadder)

5 different names for Kardinia park

34 players on our list were born

4 clubs were invented

13~ John Farnham tours (difficult to quantify)

22 Marvel movies

14 Professional Darts Corporation world titles for Phil Taylor

7 F1 titles for Michael Schumacher

7 V8 super car championships for Jamie Wincup (1 for Mark Winterbottom, go Frosty)

23 confirmed nuclear detonations

Pluto was officially dropped as a planet

0 Melbourne premierships

 

The sun will come up tomorrow regardless, we will have our time in it again, would be nice to have a win to accompany my inevitable hangover though

 :roos:

 

What about all the clubs we have beaten in a finals Game who have subsequently won a flag themselves. The list is impressive: Swans,North, Carlton, Collingwood, Hawthorn, W. Bulldogs, Essendon, Adelaide, West Coast from memory.

I don’t know why we got Pruess if we won’t even play him against sides with two designated rucks. Especially when we are decimated by injuries and our only tall forward is our of form.

Exactly right!!!

17 injuries and playing a tall side and we refuse to play support to our biggest weapon, Maxy

They've outfoxed us on the picking of second ruck!

All that stands between Simon Goodwin and a lot of pee'd off Melbourne fans (me included) is Max Gawn right now. If Max gets torched by the dual rucks of WCE (not for the first time), I'mma have some words let me tell you.

Goodwin has fallen for Simpson's three card trick, Vardy was never going to ruck by himself when the better ruckmen bring hickory is  available,  team selection is Goodwin's Achilles heel he's got no idea about team selection he should be kept out of the team selection process, they're going to Target Max work him over, vardy is just going to smash into him whenever he has got the chance.

    RED AND BLUEPRINT 2019 by Whispering Jack

    The rusty red of the McDonnell Ranges and the blue skies above them provided the perfect backdrop that summed up everything about the Melbourne Football Club’s 2019 season. It set out the perfect red and blueprint for the club’s horror year. The club’s previous season was one of great promise but it ended in a calamitous way in Perth with an 11 goal defeat at the hands of the ultimate premiership side, the West Coast Eagles in a game where the Demons’ first goal came early in the third quar

    WINDY DAY FOOTY by KC from Casey

    Windy day footy has always been the domain of those who play the game hard: on days when the breeze gusts all over the place and the ground has been sodden by recent rains, the player needs to get all aspects of his game together and be hard of body and mind, to concentrate and attack the football. The Casey Demons came out on their own deck in such conditions and under a mainly sunny sky and gave it a crack for half a game but they lost sight of the fundamentals of playing hard in difficul

    TRECIMATED by George on the Outer

    A little more than two months have passed since Melbourne met and came close to beating the reigning premier West Coast in the preliminary final replay over in the West. At the time, the Demons had three wins on the board and now, nine rounds later and going into this week’s match, they have managed to add a paltry two more wins to the ledger.  The Eagles, in contrast, have moved to within percentage of second spot on the ladder despite their loss at home this week against Collingwood.

    SAME STORY, DIFFERENT SONG by George on the Outer

    Melbourne was still suffering from the same old story - a lack of AFL capable players from which to choose at the selection table - and the Western Bulldogs got to sing their song again. But wait, that wasn’t the Doggie’s song we’ve been hearing for the last 30 years, it was some other concoction and no-one knew the words to it but whatever it was, they got to mumble it with gusto after a huge 8 point win! The sad thing is that the Bulldogs (or Footscray or whatever they choose to call

    DOGGED by KC from Casey

    On Sunday, the Casey Demons met the Footscray VFL under the roof at the same venue where their nemesis took them down in the 2017 grand final and the result left them with the same feeling of disappointment - this time with a seven point defeat that ended the club’s four game winning streak and made things a lot harder in terms of playing in this year’s final series.   And, as has so often happened this year, the Demons let the game get away from them with but failing to take advantage of th

    BARKING MAD by The Oracle

    There was so much hype proliferating about Melbourne’s prospects for season 2019 a mere four months ago, that one could be forgiven for thinking anyone contemplating the prospect of a bottom four finish for the Demons at the time was barking mad. That however, is the prospect that they face at the moment and a loss to the Bulldogs on Sunday would make it a virtual certainty.  The club’s downward spiral after several years of moving steadily on an upward trajectory has been well documented i

    THE MELBOURNE WAY by George on the Outer

    Much has been made by the coaching staff of playing a “Melbourne way” style of play. The nail-biting finish by the Demons in the dying minute of the game could not have been any more the case in point.   Leading by a game-high 38 points late in the third quarter, and by five goals at the final change, this should have been the catalyst for a romp home to an easy win.   But that is not the “Melbourne way” and the supporters, especially those with a severe case of MFCSS (aka intense inse

    PINK AND BLUE CAN’T KICK TRUE by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons took on the Northern Blues at home on Saturday  in a game that was crucial in terms of their hopes for September and they took away the valuable four points on offer after some worrying moments. Most of those worries were self-inflicted as a result of some shocking inaccuracy in front of goal, sloppiness in play and a little bit of indiscipline that all combined to make the game a lot closer than it should have been. The final scoreboard showed the Demons winning the P

    GO FIGURE by Sam the Stats Man

    In May last year, a rampant Melbourne side demolished Carlton by 109 points at the MCG. The Demons did as they pleased and ran rings against a young, abysmal Blues combination. The Dees led in virtually every key performance indicator, notably entering the inside 50 metre mark 63 times to 33 and the superiority of their attack was highlighted by a 74% shooting accuracy rate (to 47%).  A little more than a year later the two sides face each other for the first time since that rout and the ta

    GORN AT THE GABBA by George on The Outer

    With Melbourne leading the Brisbane Lions in the second term, and the game in the balance, a Max Gawn ankle injury signalled that the Demons were as good as gorrnnn for the match. Without a suitable 2nd ruck and (once again) forced to use either Tom McDonald, Tim Smith or Sam Weidemann in the ruck the Demons found themselves without a forward line that could kick a winning score. Not that anything really changed, as the forward line has been completely dysfunctional all season and one

    GAMBIT by KC from Casey

    The opening gambit of Saturday afternoon’s game told us everything about who would be its main players and who would come out on top. The Casey Demons were eager to turn the tables on the Box Hill Hawks who beat them in last year’s grand final and then gave them a first up mauling at City Oval, Box Hill. Kicking with the aid of a strong breeze in the opening term, Braydon Preuss’ first hit out went straight to the diminutive Jay Kennedy Harris who pounced with a 70 metre shot at goal that sailed

    MURDER BY NUMBERS by Sam the Stats Man

    The respective ladder positions of this week’s combatants tell the story of one side on the rise and the other in steep decline. Since their most recent meeting which took place early last year, the Dees and the Lions have changed positions. They are opposed to each again on the former’s home turf with the locals in fine fettle after blowing St Kilda off the park at Marvel Stadium.  The Lions’ home ground advantage has been a major consideration so far this year. They have won five out of s
