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 must say lewis is holding McGovern to account

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!???

    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
