CHANGES: Rd 21 v Collingwood

Recommended Posts

Preuss a shocker around the ground but did win some hit outs in the ruck. There’s no one left to back Max up if they omit Preuss. Won’t even attempt a guess on Tim Smith’s availability.

Lever in some doubt perhaps with May (if we aren’t playing it safe with him) coming in. Hore the standout for Casey from all reports. 

One change I’d like to see is turnovers out.

Slim pickings at Casey, thoughts?

Looks like May will definitely be back in, as should Hore be

I imagine outs will come down to Lever’s ankle and whatever mystery injury of the week there is

I really don’t understand playing the likes of JKH - he pretty clearly isn’t going to be with us next year - but it seems the cupboard is empty

IN: May, Hore 

OUT: Lever, JKH

From here, it really doesn’t matter.  The cupboard is indeed bare.

may back in.

Preuss was an absolute liability, but pies have Grundy and Cox , so who supports Max if concrete mitts gets dropped to Casey?  Maybe give Petty a couple of goes to spell max.

hore perhaps in, and maybe move Frosty to the wing?

otherwise, whoever plays, just stop with the stupid mistakes, the terrible skills and the complete lack of understanding of how to play the game.

exit interviews start in 3 weeks....

May walked past me last night after the game and it looked like he was limping. Not sure if the hammy will come up but I hope it does.

OMac must be dropped for this game - too unable to contest the ball against an opponent, shirks the issues, reliant of chasing whilst getting further and further behind the spoiling zone, creates significant gaps in the backline arriving to the contest after the ball has been marked or delivered by hand and/or foot.

Sportsbet offering $1.45 on the filth.

I know the filth aren't playing well, but fairly generous odds.

May in - play him forward (if available)

JKH deserves another chance

Omac stays in, albeit by the hair of his chinny, chin chin

PS - A boundary umpire that throw the ball back into play further than 5 metres!

Omac stays, I am expecting 3 BOG's in the coming weeks, will give good currency for a mega trade. Otherwise don't really care.

I know Preuss had a shocker but he should play for two reasons. He is our backup ruck if Max goes down and needs to get to understand the game at AFL level. Secondarly we owe it to Max to give him some support for the remaining three dead rubbers for his enormous 2019 performance.

Agree.... He was awful but we've got nothing to lose by playing him for the final few games,  it's perfect opportunity to get games into him and a chop out for Max. 

Hore in for Lever (playing sore) 

May in for Hunt.

Oscar in same boat as Pruess.... Was god awful but we need to play him,  maybe throw him n May forward rotating. 

Result is irrelevant, time to experiment for 2020.

Oscar stays simply for more match time at AFL level - then we can reassess post-season, probably likewise for JKH.

Preuss to stay in purely so Max isn't carrying the full burden - he can only improve surely...

Don't really care who comes in - I've lost faith in our injury timeframes now

Nah

He goes out next week when May comes in. Just watched the reply and... no I wont comment any further on this.

Hore comes in for Lever if he doesn't get up.

Didn’t Oscar play his school footy as a forward? Why not throw him down there and May back if he’s back in. May as well coz his confidence is shot as a defender at the moment. 

Goody said in his presser that he’s throwing some players around to see what flexibility they may have to offer.

Yeah look if that's the choice then of course May comes in. Issue for me is more around the pliable nature of our injury return dates and whether May will actually be available for selection

J Wags was dropped last weeks

Corey was going well for a bit, but his second half was awful

 

I think we play the likes of Dunkley, Baker, JKH, Petty (and even Preuss and perhaps Omcd) for all remaining games. Need to get them game time at the right level

As bad a Preuss was last night, if he clunks a few of those grabs, and sticks a few tackles, he could have a big impact next year and he's only going to get better for the experience

Season's over, play the kids

As i recall, he also played forward in his early days at Casey. Wasn't a spectacular success and you don't want to pin any hopes on him to impact a game, but he didn't look all at sea there.

This hit the nail on the head for our entire season. 

Its an indictment on the coaches and players. 

ITS PATHETIC.

    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

    CHANGES 2019 by The Oracle

    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

    COOKED by The Oracle

    I can vividly remember when the Demons ventured onto Blundstone Arena for the first time in early 2016 only to lose to the Kangaroos by 20.11.131 to 21.10.136.    Melbourne was then a team on the up and up: young, enthusiastic and bold. It gave up a huge quarter time deficit after kicking against a strong wind but made that up by half time and fell dramatically short after an exciting high scoring affair.  The team lost no fans that day - they were willing to take the game on and attac

    HELP by KC rom Casey

    The Casey Demons finished off their home and away season against Frankston at Skybus Stadium on Sunday with a narrow, unconvincing 6-point victory that left the door slightly open for a top eight berth when the VFL finals begin in a fortnight’s time. While sunny skies prevailed over Frankston in the morning, the skies became overcast by noon and heavy waves pounded the bay nearby as the rains came in to greet the players as the game started. And conditions stayed dark and dreary for the rem

    THANKS BUT NO THANKS by George on the Outer

    Thanks, but no thanks! In a round where the club was supposed to thank their fans for the support during the year, the Melbourne Football Club chose to do otherwise with a 53 point loss to a team that sat 15th on the ladder.  Don’t give us cheap jumpers that can’t be sold in the Demon shop.  Don’t give us vouchers to shop there, give us something on the field, which is why we come to the football in the first place. It was a disgraceful performance, which started with a disgracefu

    SLEEP OUT AT THE MCG by The Oracle

    Around about 12 months ago Melbourne and Sydney fought out an epic battle between two top eight teams fighting for the best possible ladder position in the lead up to the finals. The Swans triumphed by 9 points at the MCG after the Demons came back from five goals down at three quarter time. But for its poor kicking for goal, Melbourne might well have won the game and finished in the top four. Who knows what might then have happened for the club in September? As a consequence, the person re

    A LITTLE RAY OF SUNSHINE by KC from Casey

    Two clubs that have been hard hit by injury recently took part in a dour battle under dark clouds and, with intermittent showers falling, it wasn’t a pretty game at Victoria Park on Sunday. Despite all that, the Casey Demons added a little ray of sunshine to their day to get the job done over a "traditional" rival with a 15 point victory over Collingwood VFL that breathed life back into their season. There were a few highlights at the ground that in past days has seen many titanic batt

    THE RETRO ROUND by George on the Outer

    We have seen it all before… Yes, a wonderful idea to showcase what used to be in football.  Big crowds, umpires who knew how to apply the rules and not opinions, high marks, skilful players. But for the Melbourne supporters their retro is what it has been like for the past 10 years. Losing games, end on end, year after year.  Opportunities squandered in front of goal. VFL standard players running around at the MCG. Just more of the same, and the game against Collingwood was no ex

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    Thanks to Demonlanders for their input into this week’s preview. Ralphius Maximus is short and bittersweet: We'll crack in at the bounce to create a contest, win our share of the ball, butcher the forward movement and get scored on easily from the intercepts. Not that hard to predict. Big Demon says: Unfortunately Collingwood will win because they have a lot more to play for. We will be good in parts but really the season is well over so we will have to put up with those bell

    WHAT, NO BLOOD? by George on the Outer

    The feeling when turning up to the MCG on a Saturday night to play a top four side in Richmond, while the Melbourne sits cemented in close proximity to the bottom of the table is like attending the Colosseum in Ancient Roman times. The expectation is that a bloodbath is about to occur. There are 100,000 Richmond members and 50,000 Melbourne members, and despite the fact that it turned out to be a wet night after half-time, a crowd of only 37K bothered to turn up. That should never have happ
