Changes vs GW$ Giants

Recommended Posts

OUT: ANB, T Smith (both concussion) and i wouldn't be surprised if Salem was as well given the knock he took late
IN: one of C Wagner or Sparrow (depending on how tomorrow goes), Preuss

brayshaw had a real dom tyson vs meth coke; he can only play the one role - inside mid - and whenever he has to play a different role (e.g. the lewis role) then he gets completely lost, and his fumbles and up-and-unders are momentum killers

i wouldn't mind seeing brayshaw forward, but his defensive pressure is just non-existent so he's a liability anywhere but on the ball - he's too good a player to be performing like he is currently

billy stretch skating on super-thin ice for mine - he holds up play every time he gets it; hoping a youngster can start to show something for casey to replace him as a runner

petty holds his spot as we'll need all tall hands on deck vs cameron, himmelberg and finlayson

B: Hore - Frost - Petty
HB: Salem - O Mac - Fritsch
😄 Jones - Oliver - Baker
HF: Hunt - T Mac - Lockhart
F: Petracca - Preuss - Garlett
Foll: Gawn - Harmes - Viney
I/c: Brayshaw - Stretch - C Wagner - J Wagner
Emerg: Jordon - Sparrow - Chandler - Kielty

Brayshaw’s a better kick than what he showed tonight, wouldn’t say I’m worried about him yet but someone should try to get ahead of any bad habits he might be starting to get in his game. 

Hard to know who comes in yet but at this stage you’d think Smith, ANB, and Salem all have clouds over them from concussion. 

Lockhart and Stretch would be two performance wise I’d put in the firing line. 

As for INS well until Casey play we can’t really say but Preuss would surely be looked at, will we take things slow with Lever or get him back in should he physically get the all clear from one week at Casey? Lewis will probably come straight back in despite his unpopularity amongst the demons fathiful.

We really are the walking wounded, but at least we played more like our 2018 selves this week than I’ve seen all year.

Depends on who's fit. They've got 9 days, so presumably enough to deal with concussions (ANB, Salem, Smith), so hopefully no forced outs, at least.

Can't see many changes, as much as anything because there's no-one really to change with. Lewis in if fit presumably, would at least allow Fritsch to move further up the field.

Yes some average players getting games. Wagner stays in just due to manpower ie so many injuries. 

In. 

1-goal kicking accuracy   It was the DIFFERENCE 

2- passing the footy inside fwd 50

3- marking inside forward 50   Tmcd  Petracca  Smith all fumbled marking chances within 15-20 metres of goal

outs.

1-Costly fumbles and Turnovers.  We cost ourselves in the last quarter.  Fritsch panic handball straight to Eagles player and Frostys goalline fumble were costly. 

2- biased umpiring.  The 23 Rd man in the west. 7-0 free kicks in the first 15 minutes of the last qtr.  they missed Cripps throw and yet an umpire 45 metre away called Oliver’s a throw .... and petty touched the footy on the goal line.

We didn’t get an update on May last week. Goody stated after the Hawks game he was 3 weeks.

Does that mean he’s on track for Adelaide?

North identified that pretty quickly with Corey and for whatever reason we thing they can play.

 

Clearly they are  in possession of some interesting polaroids of Goodwin.

You can add Stretch to that list. Yes i get the Father/Son love but hes is not up to you, is not quick and offers nothing!

Preuss has to come in because Gawn can't be expected to go all day against Mumford.

Billy Stretch is infuriating. When he has the ball he is so slow to make a decision that he allows the opposition to set up and a turnover results.

The most risk averse player in our team. The stalling is momentum killing especially as he is used on the wing which is a link position

Correct.

Not only is he too slow to make a decision he still makes the wrong one after taking an eternity.

Unfortunately, he's a hopeless AFL footballer.  VFL quality at best.

Stretch needs someone to just tell him to play on more.  

His kick to Viney in the 3rd qtr showed his talent.  

Goal opportunity in the last 3 minutes showed exactly where he is at.  Close but not quite.  Should have kicked it.  AFL standard means you kick goals in the run from 35 metres. Should have even baulked around the eagles defence.

Stretch would not have been an AFL player if not for his fathers name. Its bad luck for him and us but needs to make every post a winner like kicking get able goals. Rather a youngster.

I don’t think we should be so hard on Stretch. He is really only playing because we have so many injuries. He has played 40 odd games at AFL level which is an achievement not too many on here have done, and despite his limitations he always gives 110% and is noted as a very professional footballer, attitude wise.  To call him a “hopeless AFL footballer” is just disrespectful IMO.

its fu@ked up isnt it. I think it really is a curse or just  terrible luck or its conditioning and player management ....or a mix of all three. Knees and concussions you cant do anything about ( 3 in one frikn game points to the curse part) but I suspect we've fallen behind the comp again in terms of fitness and conditioning. Hogan looks like a different build , slimmer and more defined,  than when he was with us.

    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

    MUD HEAP by KC from Casey

    In the opening round of the 2018 VFL season, the Casey Demons enjoyed an emphatic 107 point victory over Coburg at Piranha Park. The team was loaded with Melbourne listed players (half a dozen of them were in the team that beat Fremantle on Saturday) and the side was in its way to a grand final appearance. A season and a half later, the club returned to the same venue in the hope of kick starting a season that had gone somewhat awry under new coach Sam Radford and while they tasted victory (as y

    PRETENDERS SENT PACKING by George on the Outer

    Fremantle, the Perth pretenders at sixth on the premiership table should have easily accounted for the Demons, sitting barely a game off the bottom of the ladder.   And for the majority of the game, it certainly looked that would be the case, until the final quarter, when the Demons stopped giving the Dockers easy chances, or making plain, dumb decisions. Not that their situation was helped by some simply appalling umpiring during the match, that kept gifting Fremantle easy scores.  Th
