We definitely need more intercept defenders, and how about some more inside mids who can’t kick while we’re at it?! I certainly hope we don’t target any outside run, small forwards or key forwards that would be madness!

[censored] I hope we are also going after a marking forward who can crash a pack and kick a few goals a game.

Keith was originally part of the Suns first intake as a key marking forward, but then went off to play cricket, then when he came back to the game he was tried first forward then settled much better down back. Unless the club thinks he could go back to a forward role (similar to TMac and Petty) then I see no reason at all for him.

We need a strong forward and a pacy midfielder. Recruiting Keath would be stupidity of the highest order. Then again it is Melbourne.

Watch us hand over a future first rounder for him aand give them Billy Stretch or ANB but we will pay their existing contract out, while the Saints get Matt Crouch for a second rounder plus  Eddie Betts.

Victorian-born Keath is reportedly being offered big money from Melbourne while Hawthorn is keen on Greenwood, according to an AFL report last month.

If it is in a trade for Lever and his giant pay packet, then it sounds good to me.

Our defence is the 17th best in the league

For the best part of the year we've had Jetta, May, Hibberd, Lever out while Lewis has done other roles. Only way I understand going after Keath (hopefully not big $$$) is they will utilise May forward with TMAC. Just a thought.

Yeah OK but how many games did may, lever and Hibbard play together other clubs target forwards and midfielders this obsession with chasing defender has left the forward line and midfield with holes, the list is full of defenders, it's getting close to having 15 defender on the list, josh has to go or we will have only defender's on the list.

We've barely had Lever May and Jetta all in the one side this year.

The few games May has played this year pur defence has looked the best it has in a long time.

If we do recruit Keath, where does he fit into the Frost, Lever, May lineup??

Frost is also out of contract currently as we speak.

I don't know much about Keath to be honest,  but there is a bit of a love fest for him in the media it seems.  

Someone started a thread about Frost to the wing which I initially thought no way,  but it may be worth experimenting with these last few rounds when both Hore n May return.

A bit of Frost Footy into out F50 would be far more unpredictable than bombing long like we do only for the opposition to pick us off every fuggn time.

FFS - these sorts of comments are ludicrous. I would suspect the recruiting team would also be after pace AS WELL as what other players can bring. Remind me how many list spots are available again ??

Won't be ANB as he has signed for 2 years.......

And Adelaide apparently had some interest in Frosty a couple of years ago before he recommitted with us.

Keath for Frost, where do I sign?

We are 17th in defence this year, 9th in 2018,  9th in 2017 and 11th in 2016.

But we don't have any room for more defenders because ours are such guns.

You see things in such excruciatingly simple, black and white  terms.

Aaron Francis has put talks on hold at the Bombers due to concerns they have no long term key position role for him. i think he's someone that could improve our side at either end of the ground. 

 

He did SFA up until the back half of last year, and has done SFA since. Massively overrated. Pass.

I heard he won't come to us, so we've decided to recruit an injured nutritionist who we hope can be re-trained as an assistant boot studder.

We'll have to pay overs, but it'll totally be worth it.

    CITIUS, ALTIUS, FORTIUS by The Oracle

    This weekend, the Melbourne Football Club was supposed to embark on a tour that started with what looked like an innocent trip to the country’s sunny Gold Coast. However, the Covid19 pandemic intervened to bring them back home for this week at least. Next week, it’s off to the West Coast but conspiracy theorists are already suggesting that this interstate sojourn could take the team all the way across the country over the next month and indeed, there are cynics who even believe that it could bec

    THE YEAR THE SNOWFLAKES FELL by Whispering Jack

    The snow that fell on the slopes of Victoria’s mountain districts in the winter of 1965 was not considered good enough to satisfy the enthusiasts. The really heavy snow that season came in two waves further north in July and August. The first descended on the national capital where “Pig Iron Bob” still held sway. Snow flurries touched the landscape all the way across the Blue Mountains. The next big snow extended further north up to the hills around Mackay in Queensland. Snowflakes fell inside t

    DEES GIVE DOGS A BONE by George On The Outer

    First place versus second on the ladder promised to be a precursor to what can be expected in the coming finals race.  However, it was the Demons who faltered and gave the Bulldogs a bone to feed their hunger just weeks out from the end of the season. The win also sent the Dogs to the top of the ladder, a position they are unlikely to cede in the coming weeks, given their fixture. While Melbourne may now struggle to keep a spot in the top four with its draw and will likely depend on the res

    THE WORM WILL TURN by The Oracle

    When I was asked to preview this game, I wasn’t sure whether it was going to be played in Darwin, on the Gold Coast or the MCG. I had no idea as to the identity of Melbourne’s opponent. This would have made for one hell of an interesting match preview so I’m glad that the AFL managed to reorganize its fixture to enable a game … any game at all … to proceed in Round 19. We’ll worry about the Gold Coast Suns or whoever they put us up against when the weekend’s done and dusted and if and when

    DRAWN AND DEEFLATED by George on the Outer

    1st v 17th ... it would seem a sure one way contest between the Hawks and the Demons but it was not to be with the game finishing in a draw, the only positive being the Demons still retain their top spot on the ladder. Melbourne was taught a football lesson by Al Clarkson, who with limited resources, just instructed his players to scrap, fight and surge the ball forward.  It stifled the Melbourne free flowing style of play and denied them the opportunities they could normally expect.

    PINK RAIN by Whispering Jack

    There is no certainty about life under a pandemic. You wake up one morning without a care in the world; the sun’s shining and it’s a beautiful day. An hour later, everything’s up in the air, the entire state is on high alert and the apartment complex next door’s in lockdown. The simple decision you had to make about buying a ticket to the footy at the weekend suddenly might get put on the back burner. There are other things in life to prioritise and on top of that, they’re predicting rain for th

    COR BLIMEY by KC from Casey

    In years to come, the old timers will talk in wonderment about the “Avalon Avalanche” that hit Werribee’s Avalon Airport Oval on a mild winter’s afternoon at about ten minutes after the halfway mark of the game between the local Tigers and their cross town rivals, the Demons from Casey. At that moment in time, the game was poised as if on a knifepoint. Up until the main interval, it had been the visiting team which had maintained the lead from the start but it had struggled to entirely asse

    POWER FAILURE by George on the Outer

    South Australians should be well familiar with the damage that storms can do to the power supply.  But Port Power forgot those lessons on Thursday night football as they watched the Melbourne storm descend upon them from across the border and ruin their hopes of a top four placing. Just as equally, the win to the Demons cemented their spot in the top two and sent out the message that a team who had been going around in circles for the past couple of weeks, has in fact, turned into a cyclone

    CASEY SUFFER FIRST DEFEAT IN TWO YEARS

    The circumstances were a little unusual last Saturday night as KC from Casey was unavailable to report on the Casey Dees due to work commitments. On the ground things were somewhat unusual as well given that, although there was a game to be won on the night, preparations were also being made for the forthcoming Thursday night clash against Port Adelaide with Ben Brown rested for large slabs of the evening. It turned out perhaps, to be a stroke of genius for Melbourne with Brown making a strong c

    WEATHERING THE STORM by Mel Rundle

    The magic of Melbourne’s magnificent start to 2021 is beginning to wear off. In its past six matches it lost to three teams that were outside the eight, out of form —  teams which it had very little trouble bearing last year. This week, the temperature is turned up even higher with the hard fought spot in the top four at risk. The really ominous factor about the Demons’ upcoming Thursday night meeting with Port Adelaide this week is that it is due to take place at the very place where its dec

    FEE-FI-FO-FUM by George on the Outer

    “Fee-fi-fo-fum, without a Full Forward the Premiership can’t be won!” So said the GWS Giants, as they exposed Melbourne’s fatal deficiency with a nine point win at the MCG.  In past weeks Melbourne has been barely able to gloss over the lack of a serious target in front of goal, while others were able to contribute.  But in a near repeat of the game from the previous week, players running up the ground simply had no-one to kick the ball to, when all that was needed was that one tall target.

    MUCH ADO ABOUT EVERYTHING by Whispering Jack

    Let's face it. We Melbourne supporters are a demanding lot. Here we are with our team on top of the ladder with a record of 12 wins and 2 losses, a decent percentage and a fair run home for a team with finals credentials. We have a fit list with lots of in form players, many of who are in contention for All Australian and other high honours, the team’s playing with purpose and cohesion and its VFL affiliate is undefeated and going gangbusters.  Still, we're all walking around with conc
