I am hoping that Melbourne will win today to give me a good day on my 61th birthday. I will watch on tv. CARN THE DEMONS .

That’s the spirit!

It's a beautiful morning on the Gold Coast. Hopefully I can make a successful raid in Brisbane and return with the spoils of victory.

3 upsets so far:  Ess d GWS.  Nth d Pies.  WBD d Power. 

Today might make it 4 upsets with a Dees d Lions!

Glad we had only one change.  Time to settle the team and get some synergy going among fwd, backs, middle and synergy with ball movement end to end. 

Optimistic that we can click today; if we do we win!

I live 700 metres from the Gabba.  Clear blue sky right now although we had a couple of heavy showers overnight. Have had some rain most days this week so the deck may be a little slippery. Predicting 25 degrees though and no doubt for you southerners up here for the game, it will be sunscreen, shorts and polo shirts!  😜 14 degrees in Melbourne today.......

Hope to catch up with a few of you either at the German Club pre match or the Pineapple post game.

Are we ready for Frost-Ball?

If the Lions are to play finals at least make them  earn their place. Hopefully last week instilled some confidence in our team and we go out there and play some decent footy. Keen to see if the young gun Andrews goes to Weid. 

Big Call- Weid to kick 3+.

Have a big fat weisenstaphaner and a schnapps for me @ProperDee

first time in a long time I won't be making the two hour trip to the Gabba.

I just can't be sure what they're going to dish up but here's hoping we've got the wheels back on.

Looking forward to more beast mode from Viney. Go Dees

Geez, I had hoped to get up there for this game. I had planned to impose on rellys for free accommodation and grog but, sadly, it fell through.

I was confident of a victory last week and am even more confident this week. 

I shall enjoy my own booze and celebrate ( in my typical style)  at The Manor.

Contrary to your arrangement BBO she's the type who'd be far more likely to be handing out the jolly good spanking.

Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Win today and we are still in the hunt. A long shot, but still alive. 

Go Hard Demons...

Our percentage is quite poor. Even if we win we won't move up at all.

Sure. We start moving up next week IF we keep winning. 

It’s still June today.

Great day up here and the ground should be fast by start time. Reckon we have a big chance here. Bring the pressure, win contested ball and the clearances and win it will be. Lions played circle work last week as Saints put no pressure on and a couple of weeks ago Lions were ordinary against Blues. Go Dees.

Yep and start winning big.

We are right on the edge, big time. But i expect to see the Club fight hard, i went to all those games in 1987. 

The scenario could happen again. 

A win on the road can galvanise belief. 

I think we will do well today...

Today we will be reminded that we’re a mediocre football team.

Im predicting a win for the second week in a row.

Not at all confident, but there you go.

I hope you have TV coverage in The Azores @Skuit. I will be listening on internet radio from Thailand* 

*Not a brag at all coz if i was home i could actually watch the game. At least the food is good here.

    WASH, RINSE, SPIN, REPEAT! by George On The Outer

    Although the Demons got over the line in their must win final round game against the hapless Bombers, they ensured it was Groundhog Day for their supporters who well remember what happened three years ago (although, this time they at least enjoyed the success of victory). Melbourne had its customary start dominating play and having plenty of chances in front of goal, only to find itself down on the scoreboard at the first change. Inaccurate kicking, particularly from set shots would have pu

    THE LUCK OF THE DRAW by Whispering Jack

    The long awaited clash between Melbourne and Essendon is almost upon us. Thirty-seven rounds of AFL football have passed by since the two clubs met on a balmy early April night last year in a game that produced a high scoring shootout at the MCG with the Bombers prevailing by 18 points. It was their only meeting for 2019 and happened at a time when the pandemic was something on the far distant horizon. Several months later when the 2019 season ended, the AFL issued the first of its fixtures

    THERE’S STILL A HEARTBEAT by George on the Outer

    When bottom side Adelaide scrapped together a win over the Giants last week, a tiny glimmer of hope opened up for the Demons’ finals chances. The patient was in intensive care but not quite finished — there was a faint pulse, a heart beating ever so slightly but was it enough when two more wins and other results were needed to fall their way? The first step was the resuscitation of a team that had lost its last two matches against sides then sitting fifteenth and sixteenth on the ladder. On

    THE FINAL HUMILIATION by The Oracle

    On Sunday, the Melbourne Football Club that won three consecutive games by in excess of 50 points last month returns to the Gabba, the scene of the last of those victories which was a 56 point drubbing of Collingwood. The Demons got off to a good start and won every quarter with a ruthless and powerful brand of football. They kicked 16 goals that day, their accuracy in front of goal a tribute to the skills the put on display throughout the afternoon and evening. In the four matches playe

    GIVEN THE OLD HEAVE HO’ by George on the Outer

    Fremantle gave Melbourne the old heave ho’ from playing finals in 2020, in conditions that the Demons yet again failed to handle.   With the whole season on the line and the need to win to stay in contention for finals, what the fans saw was much the same as they have been witnessing so many times before — a complete debacle and capitulation against a side that sat 15th on the ladder before the game.     Promises made after the loss to the 16th placed Sydney Swans were rendered h

    GETTING THE HEAVE HO by Bananabender

    The ute barely made it up to Cairns in time for us to check into the motel, fling a cane toad out the bathroom. and head over to Cazaly’s Stadium where we took up our position on the wing. There, we saw a completely different Melbourne to the one we watched on the screen only a few nights earlier from Alice Springs. This lot wore similar colours and Maxy dominated the ruck but the similarities ended there - the Demons were simply dreadful against the Swans. They started sluggishly, were spe

    A CLANGER IN CAIRNS by George on the Outer

    Having fought back into finals contention, the Demons had it all before them when facing a lowly Sydney in Cairns.  But in typical Melbourne fashion, they threw away the opportunity to cement their spot in the eight with a clanger of a game.  Right from the start, there was little to enthuse from the Melbourne players, who appeared to think that they only had to turn up, enjoy the North Queensland sun, and take away the four points.  Compared with the furious ground wide pressure of the

    TEN MINUTES LATE by Whispering Jack

    The late Norm Smith, who played in four Melbourne premierships and coached another six, was a strong disciplinarian. Known as the Red Fox for his auburn hair and his cunning, Smith was a man of a different age to the here and now. Born during the Great War, he survived the Spanish Flu Pandemic, grew up in depression times, played mostly through the Second World War and its aftermath and coached in a period of rebuilding and recovery to a time of prosperity. Smith’s success was built on team

    SAINTS HELL IN DEES HEAVEN by GOTO

    The last of this year’s indigenous games was played in the red heart of the country and could well have determined Melbourne’s finals aspirations but it was St Kilda that had its top four hopes dashed after a nail-biting finish in Alice Springs which saw them unceremoniously marched out of the position in football heaven occupied by them for much of this season. It all came down in the end to a goal-line decision as to whether a freakish shot by Christian Petracca was touched and the goal u

    DO OR DIE by The Oracle

    Melbourne is, not for the first time, paying for lapses in matches whereby the club leaks multiple goals without answer and which usually cost the club in those all-important eight point games as it did last week against the Western Bulldogs which replaced the Demons in the AFL top eight. And this week, they come up against a team that reputedly plays in the same mode as the Bulldogs but has been able to prevail over better opponents than Melbourne. It’s not that the Demons are out of form

    GIVE THE DOGS A BONE by George on the Outer

    The winner of the game is in the top eight and the loser out. Had Melbourne won, it would have consigned the Bulldogs season to the scrapheap given their remaining fixture which still includes a bye. The Demons led at half-time but they gave the Dogs a bone which was willingly accepted — they notched 6 goals in the third quarter and dumped the Demons out of the eight. This game simply saw all the bad habits return for Melbourne players.  When they serve up dinky kicks, dinky handballs, litt

    FRENZY by Whispering Jack

    The Melbourne Football Club should hand out an award to the person who came up with the concept of the 20 day football frenzy the football world experienced from Round 9 to the completion of Round 12 on Monday. When the AFL fixture was moved into a state of perpetual motion, things changed so quickly that it was difficult to fathom exactly what was happening to the competition but the Demons have been one of the beneficiaries to date. The flogging the team received at the hands of Port Adel
