GAMEDAY: Rd 18 vs West Coast Eagles

Recommended Posts

Funny old game. Jetta goes inside 50, not long after Fritsch marks in front of May, with Petty not far away.

Can't tell off the screen, is anyone playing in defense?

Great fight back.

Viney playing a great game.

Fritta doing a top job up forward.

Jetta getting amongst it as is Harmes.

Brilliant move Lewis up forward  (who ever would have thought).

Have been quite happy with Corey Wagner's game so far as will.

Full credit to Goody and the coaching staff.  The move of both Lewis and Fritsch (from the first bounce) up forward has been a masterstroke and has contributed 5 of our 7 goals.

Can't fault the endeavour, the effort and the willingness to fight for the shirt.  The skills, especially under pressure, haven't always stood up but on the other hand we've played some ripping footy.

Fingers crossed we can keep it up and cause an upset!

We are beating them in all stats except centre clearances and frees ...just behind in contested.  Oh and obviously getting beaten on conversion...again.

I'm annoyed at you Goodwin.

Fritsch was always a forward. Always.

True potential wasted in the back line

When May, Lever, Jetta and Lewis were all out, we almost didn't have an option but to put him back.  Now that they're all back we have the freedom to stick him there.

I agree - I've always felt he was a forward, but necessity predicated that we needed him elsewhere.  

Hopefully he now stays there.

Umpires gave us a fair go that quarter and we kicked straightish to get back into it.

also I love how both Ryan and Rioli have flown on top of packs taking out defenders with no realistic attempt at the ball, allowing Their big forwards to Mark unopposed. OK by the umps it seems.

Random question.  Why in our home game did a west coast fan toss the coin?

I'm aware about the lack of personnel that prompted the move in the defense. But I'd argue that someone else should have been put back, given that our forward line was such a mess. Fritsch's foot skills didn't shine all that often back there, after all.

Did I say we should sack him?

Perhaps one of our coaches should tell the players where the wind is going and how to kick for goal? Or perhaps we should practice our skills? Or maybe ANB shouldn’t be getting games when he’s so bad?

I mentioned the umpiring is a disgrace but so is our skills and defensive efforts and that is 100% on the coaches  

 

Jaded we usually agree on our team, but we are letting our players off by blaming the Coach for everything.

We have outplayed the Eagles who need to win for top four, with no forward line and horrendous umpiring. If we had kicked what we should we would be 5-6 goals up. Does the Coach get credit for that?

I blame the players for missing gimme goals today, like they have all year.

Goodwin has made mistakes but teams can’t win when they butcher the ball and we are according to stats the worst at it in history.

My god I am a fan of Petty but seriously 2 misses from 15 out straight in front. Lewis just missed from 5 metres out for his 3rd miss and was lucky to get another kick. 

The most important thing we need above all else is the ability to kick straight both at goal and passing.

I have to go now and buy another TV, because I have kicked this one to pieces.

PS. Senior players can work out the breeze after one shot. They are dumb.

Who would you have put there?  With those guys out we were already forced to play Oscar, J Wagner etc down there.  We needed a little but of class and footy IQ.  Granted, he never always hit the target, but he did it more often than others.

If Lewis keeps playing like that as a defensive forward for the rest of the year and hits the scoreboard regularly does he stay another year?

Demonland should be appointed to the coaching panel- we have been advocating Fritsch to the forward line all  season.

Clarry Choo Choo gets held of the ball all the time but still has 20 odd possesions. I hope to God he never gets injured Woe if he ever does!! Why does Viney persist with trying to break every Friggen Tackle!???

    THE TORRENS THUMPING by George on the Outer

    THE TORRENS THUMPING - LEAVING THE DEMONS BEHIND That headline might lead a reader to think that Melbourne had lost badly in Adelaide but no!  It was actually the MFC which left it’s demons from the previous week behind as it applied the blowtorch to the Crows in the final quarter of their match at the Adelaide Oval and went on their merry way to record a 51 point win before their biggest crowd of the year (even if they were mainly hostile). Much had been made in the media about t

    STATE OF DEESASTER by the Oracle

    Melbourne’s circus caravan rolls into Adelaide on Wednesday night, an event that will put shivers up the spine of every Crows’ supporter as they look directly into the face of disaster. The flakey Demons left their home town a month ago and proceeded to rough up the Gold Coast Suns and Hawthorn in Sydney before moving on to the sunny Queensland where they missed by a bee’s diaphragm against the more or less local second-on-ladder Brisbane Lions. Then, they had to butter up against the top t

    OVERPOWERED by George on the Outer

    In a dismal display against Port Adelaide, Melbourne showed it had learnt nothing from their previous week’s loss to Brisbane. Port, in contrast, after losing to St.Kilda, addressed their failings, and as a result made the Demons look like a second-rate side.  Melbourne failed to score a goal in the first quarter, and the first time it seriously troubled the goal umpire was saved until a minute before half-time.  Did it get any better?  No with their meagre three goals for the sec

    DESPERATION OF THE MOMENT by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne’s recent win against Hawthorn highlighted how important Max Gawn’s ruck domination is for the team. A week later however, that domination continued but its effect was totally blunted by the Brisbane Lions midfield and, as a consequence, what could have been an easy win over a leading AFL contender turned into a disappointing but close loss and a sense of desperation now looms over the club as the halfway mark of the season approaches. This week’s opponent in Port Adelaide also und

    THE FOUR POINT FAIL by George on the Outer

    Melbourne went down by 4 points in a thrilling finish against Brisbane, but they failed by more than the 4 points.     They also failed to score the 4 points necessary to keep them in the race for the finals, and now find themselves sitting 6 points outside the top 8, but effectively 2 games outside (even though they have a game in hand).   The Demons had more than enough opportunities to win.  Six very easy shots on goal failed to bother the goal umpire with a major and ultimate

    NORTH OF THE BORDER PART 2 by The Oracle

    The travelling COVID circus moves north of the border yet again and, unless at some time in the near future, Papua New Guinea opens its borders, this could be the last time this phenomenon happens. And as fortune would dictate, the resurgent Demons are walking directly into the sights of the locals from the bright lights of Brizvegas to Carrara - the scene of some long-forgotten (and deservedly so) battles with one of the Lions’ former incarnations, namely, the Brisbane Bears.

    ON THE NOSE by George on the Outer

    One of the Hawthorn Football Club’s valued sponsors is Azep® Nasal Spray and given the thrashing handed out to the Hawks in today’s game, it would appear that they need a huge supply of the sponsor’s product because they are simply on the nose. This condition was caused by the sheer dominance of the Demons, led magnificently by skipper Max Gawn with 27 hitouts and 22 disposals including two clearances. Around him in the middle were Christian Petracca with 29 touches, Clayton Oliver (also on

    THE PREMIER LEAGUE by Whispering Jack

    So the new man under the pump is Clarko, which demonstrates how sad but predictable the football media is these days. In an age where each AFL team’s form can be topsy turvy and unpredictability is the order of the day, the coach of a team that has played five out of the top six teams from the previous season and sits with a 3/3 win loss record is this week’s whipping boy.   This comes admittedly on the back of a bad fortnight from the Hawks who in recent years have exhibited an enormous

    SUNSMART by George on the Outer

    If you don’t want to get sunburnt, you follow the Sunsmart rules.  Melbourne took the advice and with their season on the line, avoided getting burnt by the Gold Coast Suns, with a gripping 17 point win. It was a match that could have gone either way, with the sides within a kick of each other for all but the final minutes of the final quarter. Melbourne had stretched the lead earlier in the game to 18 points, but that quickly evaporated to a neck and neck race to the finish.  Finally,

    NORTH OF THE BORDER by The Oracle

    The outcomes of Melbourne’s recent games against the Gold Coast Suns are a pretty good barometer of how the teams are faring. The Demons easily accounted for them twice in 2018, the last win being a 96-point cakewalk at the MCG in Round 20 when they scored a whopping 21.17.143 to 7.5.47. Ironically, Melbourne’s score of 9.3.57 at the first break that afternoon is leading its highest score for a full game to date this year by 3 points. In those days, they played fast, skillful football, moved th

    PACK YOUR BAGS by George on The Outer

    The scene was captured by the TV camera’s before the match with a view of the Melbourne side’s bags packed next to the team bus to facilitate their flight up north to the AFL hub where they will play their next matches. However, on the basis of the efforts against Richmond, unless things change, and change rapidly, there will be some who will be told to pack their bags on a more permanent basis. Once again, the supporters got much the same story from this match against Richmond, as

    SOUTH OF THE BORDER by the Oracle

    Thankfully they moved this week’s game from Sydney where the sun shines and the virus breeds ever so slowly and almost nobody returns a positive test. The change of fixture comes at precisely the right time to allow everyone in town to head to the MCG on Sunday at around 3:30pm, not to catch up with what’s going on inside the ground but rather, to do what’s fashionable for woke folk in 2020 — pulling down statues. It’s time for Kevin Bartlett and Leigh Matthews to go but you can’t touch Norm Smi
