Lucifer's Hero

CHANGES: Rd 14 vs Fremantle

Recommended Posts

O'Mac is a much better defender when Lever is in the team based on 2018 results. Thou he is playing like crap and certainly needs to go back to the reserves. I would like to see him take on a forward/ruck role. Versatility is not a bad thing. I could see in the future 2020 that May may become a forward. In Preuss out Garlett. so far.

If May plays on Hogan, I expect the result of that single contest will be simplistically viewed by some as a proxy as to whether we "won" or lost on those two trades. 

Nonetheless will be an interesting dual. Watching Freo playing pa at the minute and Hogan shades of his better form. We miss him as someone that would run all the way down the ground to take a mark or crash a pack.

It is clear we lost on the trade irrespective of the match up. Hogan has taken more marks this year than our whole forward line. We gave up a high draft pick and May has only really played one game is yet to have a good game where he beats or even slows down an opponent.

I watched May fairly closely, and thought he had a really good game.  He added leadership to the back half, did a lot of little things, used his body well, positioned himself well and attacked the contests.  For a first game (I’m discounting the quarter he played earlier in the year), he gets a big tick from me.

What right has May got to pretend to be a leader - he has not proved anything at this club yet. He is a mouthy blowhard who needs to focus on his own game if he is going to make it. He was not signed to tell others who have earned and played more games this year, what to do. May was not even a road bump slowing the pies path to the goals. Don't believe all the hyperbole about May. He is an ordinary footballer who will struggle to be best 22 next year. He does not read play well and is unable to lock down an opponent.

Freo were merciless today.  Reminded me of how we played the finals.

Can't see us winning next week.  But I hope we bring some of the ferocity of our finals series.  If we don't Freo will smash us and not just on the scoreboard. 😟

Hogan has 72. Melksham alone has 48. Then Tom Mac 43, Hunt 40 etc. etc.

Just nonsense.

Unless you know what he does around the club, I don’t think your views relating to his leadership are fully informed.  He provides leadership onfield in that back 6 by virtue of his experience.  Are you wanting JWags to lead the group? Hore?  I am not sucked in by others, I made my own judgements of his performance on the day.  I feel your view of his performance is overly harsh, and I wonder who you think will replace him in the best 22 next year?  Kielty?  Petty? OMac?  He and Lever are going to be important pillars of our defence for the next few years.  When they get co-ordinated and in synch, I can see them being lauded as perhaps the best defensive KP structure in the AFL.

Melksham alone has not taken 48 marks this year. TMac has not taken 43 marks  and Hunt has not taken 40 marks this year. Do a google search

Walters is going to have a day out playing on us. 

Hogan would be licking his lips having moved to freo. 

Most of us thought when he moved he wouldn’t get good delivery of the pill, welll how wrong were we. 

Who would have thought we would be down the bottom of the ladder this season and freo would be above us!!!!!!

Somehow we’re actually favourites for this game according to Sportsbet.

I’m not worried about Hogan. His goal kicking issues are just as bad and he’ll be too much inside his head to play well against us.

Walters is a very good player but I feel Hibberd might be ok for him.

I’m more worried about Fyfe and Hill.

This game will be a real slog. It’ll be low scoring and if we win it’ll be less than 20pts.

Can’t believe we are favourites wtf is wrong with these betting agencies!!

I am not that worried about Hogan but agree Fyfe, Hill and Walters are our main issues  

Also I’m most worried about our own back yard in regards to our kicking, hand balling, marking and kicking for goal  

if we continue the way we have this season then we are no chance

Agree that Hogan shouldn't be our biggest concern. 

It's Walters that scares me most. He's a genuine superstar and we don't really have anyone who is fast enough or smart enough to deal with him.

That is interesting. The midget Spargo has taken 23 marks to ANB 9 in the same amount of games. 

To be fair though, ANB has had at least 2 games cut short with injury, not that that would make a difference of 14 marks of course.

Omac will be lucky to get another game this year if May and Lever put in those solid performance each week. They'll only get better with more match fitness too.

Ok so what would O Mac attract as a trade??

GARBAGE, shows more leadership then Viney and possibly Jones ON FIELD!

Both our captains tend to lead by example rather than on-field vocal coaching types a la Lewis & Hodge.

And unfortunately, with the exception of Jones on a few occasions only, neither has been able to lead by example!

This sentence, in this post. Is that irony, hypocrisy or both?

    SOCIAL DISTANCING by George on the Outer

    It was good to see the MFC players practicing the directives about social distancing at the game against West Coast.  Pity was that they continued to do so after the first bounce of the ball, as they allowed numerous WCE players run around un-hindered, with not a Melbourne player within 1.5 metres of them! They then found themselves looking at nearly a 5 goal deficit at the first break, which was to be essentially the final margin for the game. It is difficult to judge exactly what is going

    BEST IN SHOW by Whispering Jack

    I am writing this knowing that the AFL has deemed that the opening round of competition will proceed but fully believing that it should not.  The world is going through cataclysmic change as a result of the overwhelming spread of the Covid-19 virus and I agree that a distraction like sport would be good for the public. However, while the physical threat to the population is bad enough, there are other  issues to be addressed including the mental health of the community and the effects on th

    TASSIE DEVILS by Van Demon

    If you were looking for something new from the Demons that wasn’t there last year, you didn’t have to look further than the perfectly trimmed grass surface of UTAS Stadium last night as the team steamrolled the Hawks to record a comprehensive 32-point victory to complete their Marsh Community Series commitments for 2020. One new thing was the fact that for the second Marsh game in a row, the team finished full of running and they dominated the second half without the presence or the dominan

    SOUTH OF THE BORDER by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons will go into their final Marsh Series match with a strong lineup against the Hawks in Tasmania. Both Max Gawn and Steven May, who were recovering from injuries in first Marsh Series match, have both been named. It is unclear whether Max will be on restricted minutes and will likely get breaks in the ruck with Sam Weideman and rookie Luke Jackson getting their turns in the middle. Angus Brayshaw will be getting his first taste of competitive football despite playing in last week’s

    KANGAROO CAUGHT by Whispering Jack

    There was a fair amount of debate in our area as to whether the game warranted a full blown match report because it was felt that it was really an elevated version of a training session with match simulation but against a team in opposition colours. Although notionally the stronger side, North seemed to be using the occasion for the purpose of working on aspects of their game plan, one of the features of which seemed to be based on taking the longest possible route out of defence and good luck w

    JUST AN ABERRATION by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne unveiled its top recruits with new fitness boss Darren Burgess and mid-sized bull Christian Petracca sharing top billing in the team’s Marsh Community Series opener in front of 3,095 football starved fans at Casey Fields and thousands of others watching on screens of various shapes and sizes.  What they saw was a different Melbourne to the one that failed to run out its JLT Series games last year and then crashed in a heap early in the season proper with performances lacking the z

    CROWDOWN by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons open their 2020 season account with a "home" game against the Adelaide Crows at Casey Fields. It’s been more than 5 and half agonising months for the team and supporters who are eager to atone for the disappointing 2019 season which saw the Dees go from Preliminary Finalist to 2nd bottom on the ladder. The preseason campaign has been a hard slog with the addition of respected High Performance Manager Darren Burgess. We caught a glimpse of the gut busting sessions in the Melbourne

    THE YEAR THE SKY FELL by The Oracle

    After a number of years of linear movement up the ladder, the Melbourne Football Club unexpectedly went into serious decline in 2019, slumping from fourth to 17th in a season that coach Simon Goodwin described “a complete wipe-out”. Those around the club who tried to analyse the apocalyptic events that unfolded during the year were hard pressed to find a single reason for the debacle but the most plausible explanation was that the club’s troubles stemmed from a lack of fitness and injuries that

    BACK IN STYLE by Whispering Jack

    From the moment when the Elton John character in the movie “Rocketman” burst into its opening scene dressed as a flamboyant demon on his way to an addiction rehabilitation session, the game was on. Here was yet another film about a person gifted with a meteoric rise to stardom finding coke, booze and a hedonistic lifestyle that led directly to a destructive crash into the abyss. Ultimately, these stories end in total disaster (“A Star is Born”, “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Judy”) but this one resulted

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2019

    PART ONE - OVERTURE  I have a disclaimer at the outset. I’m not a fan of the races - be they horses or motors of any kind. Once the final siren sounds on the football season, I find the month or so that follows and corresponds roughly with the Spring Racing Carnival to be the most boring time of the year for sports fans. You turn on the radio and you’re confronted by the monotonous drone of a self-proclaimed racing expert or by the nasally twang of an ex-jockey banging on about the equine p

    PART 1 - IT’S A LITTLE MORE COMPLICATED THIS TIME This year’s free agency, trade and draft period will see the usual drama and upheaval as the AFL’s 18 clubs seek to better their lists in order to challenge for finals and possibly premiership honours. Long before the final siren sounded on the season just over a week ago, the maneuvering was under way with player agents and clubs discussing possible player movements and in some cases, deals had already been done.  Yesterday, the r

    HOW FAR SOUTH? by George on the Outer

    It was appropriate that Melbourne was playing its last game of season 2019 in Hobart.  After all, how much further south could the team go? And much as it has done in many of the previous 22 games, the side managed to extract a loss from a winning position by simply giving the ball back to the opposition time and time again. In fact, they gave it back to the opposition to the tune of 53 points from turnovers while, by way of contrast North Melbourne contributed  only 17 points to their oppo
