CHANGES: Rd 14 vs Fremantle

Recommended Posts

If Lever is out then Petty comes in for me. Time to start getting some games and development into him.

Watched him play against Collingwood VFL game and his intercept marking and ability to provide drive from defensive 50 was fantastic.

Frequently dropping it too. Has Bull ever worn a glove? Might seem like an obvious and dumb idea, but.. just maybe it could give him a little edge in "catching" them like McGovern does with his sticky hands. Borrow Jayden's, he surely doesn't need em!

Simple solution, used by Sean Wight, Yze, et al; could make a big difference to him at the instance of the big grab.

I'd like to see tsmith play on Ryan, while still going for the ball. He's been there best intercept player so stopping him is a must

I'd like to see both TSmith and JSmith in the same team on game day, for that matter. It would have strengthened our Team, all year. Shame about the reality of circumstances....

That's what I'd do. Freo spread like crazy. Getting as many runners through the midfield and wings will be vital to stop their run. So even though he's a limited player Stretch comes back in to run with Langdon or Hill. 

Time to give Jones a good run at half back to see if he can reinvent himself. Time to give Smith a fair go at it as the 3rd tall forward to see if that frees up Tom and Sam as it did for parts of the game against the Crows in Darwin. Petracca should get some midfield time as well.

I'm not sure whether I agree or disagree, but I do like the way you've explained your changes.

Why the [censored] did they rush him? I just can’t with this club’s injury management. 

I commented on this 3 weeks ago Jaded about the Lever & May inclusions, especially with limited game time at Casey (Lever 2 quarters & May 4 quarters for Casey). Makes no sense whatsoever & shows total disregard for player welfare & care . I know the players just want to play, but really, we are no chance to play finals & achieves nothing! I would have thought that the coaching & medical staff would have learnt from the Viney experience ......

Dumb....

I keep saying it and i hark back to a thread i started "Professionals" - this club is so far off the pace when it comes to these sorts of things. It really does my head in. 

Changes should be:

IN: Smith / Lockhart / Lewis

Out: Wagner, Spargo, Lever (inj.)

  In Lewis.....Out J Wagner.......I hope Lever is right to play........  If not bring in Pruess and send TMac to the back          line..............In ANB........Forward pressure.....Out.....Spargo  for reservicing.

 

Tim Smith a chance........ Sorry to say that Garlett is on his last legs.

Lewis in? Are you serious?

Brad Hill, Stephen Hill,  Fyfe, Walters,  A Brayshaw, B Matera, Wilson.......good luck keeping up with these blokes!

ANB in and tell him to stick on Wilson all day. Pressure him so those Rebound 50s are uncomfortable all day. Can’t afford their gun players to create havoc once the ball is cleared from our forays forward.

May on Hogan would be a disaster, Jesse is an aerobic animal (despite also being  a party animal), he will take May up and down the field constantly and soon blow him up. Freo have far too much run, pace and are frankly a far better team than us this season can't see how we wont get hammered....

You might not like the pick and is a fringe now and certainly in his last season and he knows that. HOWEVER! IMO he still offers experience ,is injury free ,had his Casey games and his last game there was clean and direct with hand and foot. If he is picked then he has earned it not given.  LG we can still make the 8 so why not keep pursuing until mathematically we cannot. You have to keep the faith and l am sure others agree.

Your right, we are all trying to stay positive N but we have been poorly coached IMO, with a total lack of team balance whilst also playing unfit, out of form & injured players all year.

I don't like the pick & it stinks.....Earned his spot? One good game in the 2's? Getting suspended again & showing a total lack of discipline & team first habits.......

I do respect your thoughts, however, If you think he is the answer, then we are in more [censored] than we think.

Lever is knee soreness rather than the reported foot soreness. Hopefully not more than a week or 2 to settle down.

The loss of Lever is a serious setback, but his absence does not mean we have to pick a third tall, although Petty will be considered.

Lockhart will be a definite in and I'd hope ANB and JKH are brought back in to try and counter Freo's run a pace.

And as stated in my mid-year rankings, I'd be punishing Olly for playing safe and playing him at full-forward.

As with others, Wags, Jeffy and Spargo are first out . I'd have Salem on Walters, Hibberd on Fyfe to free up Harmes and Jones on Matera.

T.Mac should be rested until he is back to full speed fitness level and his omission leaves room for T.Smith and Preuss.

B: Salem  May Hore

HB: Jones Frost Fritsch

C Baker Brayshaw JKH

HF: Petracca T.Smith Hannan

F: Lockhart Olly Weid

Ru: Gawn Hibberd (Fyfe) Viney

Int: Harmes, ANB, Preuss, Hunt

Reckon you're on the money here DD36.

Petty for Lever (inj) and Lewis for Hibberd (inj) seem likely changes pending accuracy of rumours going around.

    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
