Pennant St Dee

Finals Week 1

Recommended Posts

I went tonight and at the ground it wasn’t that hard to differentiate the teams

It was a pretty ropey game; pies got the early break and that was it

terrible skills from both sides; meth coke will feast on cats next week and pies will lose de goey and probably Greenwood

Very hard to see either going all the way

Cats must apply pressure at the stoppages and stop the kicking game of the Eagles

Would love the AFL to move the game to Kardinia Park

If Geelong go out in straight sets, there'd have to be questions asked about Scott wouldn't there?

Bloke has overseen a string of finals chokes already. His tenure has been masked by walking into a side that coached itself to a flag in 2011.

I commend him for changing up their forwardline this year, but they rely on too few and many go missing when the blow torch is applied back the other way.

Ugh the moment you wake up in the morning and realise the filth are straight through to a prelim. 

Admittedly I didn't see the game but did the pies lose Degoey and greenwood before 1/2 time?  Seriously how could the cats not win and the pies didn't even kick a goal in the final term.

The pie where Happy to defend in the last qtr they just went slow and sucked the game to death, if footy goes on like this year it will lose fans, has became a defensive game.

The pies unlike us have shown they can be decimated by injuries and still play good footy. They are a switched on “one for all and all for one” side and not one led by two headless chooks.

That's being a bit hard on chooks perhaps.

Last night's game was boring. Turned the sound down and read the cricket rain updates in the Guardian for entertainment

We’re back to a place where the only enjoyment we get is watching other teams lose.

Love them or hate them, the Pies have a strong belief about themselves and good luck to them. That Elliott smother/dive on Bews from memory in the dying minutes was pure determination and team first football. 

Most Geelong players looked like they had concrete boots on. Dangerfield carried them last night and he nearly pinched the game.

Yep. Not often a winning side doesn’t score anything in the last Quarter. 

Shows just how bad Jeelong were in the First Half

The cliff is coming for the Cats. 

It all looks good at the early stages of the season when the old stagers are up and running.

They were the same last year in the finals against us. 

Selwood, Hawkins, Ablett and Taylor all ineffective.  Just too old come the end of the season.

Will be interesting to see how they play the Kelly trade. He's a good player.

Top notch coaching by Buckley last night.  Down to 2 in last 1/4 with 4 goal lead managed perfectly.

If only we had those types of thinkers inside Dees box.?

Last year the cats only managed 6 goals against us and last night could only manage 7. That is not going to be enough next week against the eagles. Hawkins kicks 4 behinds. Not good enough from your key forward. If he was playing against us that would have been 4 straight. Even if he kicked 1/2 they would have won. 

Anyway go bulldogs today and go brisbane tonight.

Didn't think that goal review that went against the cats was so clear. Hopeless camera angle.

I would have thought it to be umpire's call at best.

Agree,  it was pretty hard to get enthused by that match at all. 

Happy though,  very rarely do I want Collingwood to win.

But then I saw Eddie prancing around and felt ill.

Yep he won a premiership in his 1st year after inheriting a great team. He didn't create it. Questions would need to be asked if they go out in straight sets after finishing top.

Empty seats at a final in Sydney. 

Get this joke of a team out of the AFL. 

very disappointing considering their phantom membership of 30,000

The stadium only holds 24,000 according to Wikipedia

    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

    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
