That majestic it even worse !!!! 
Jetta Baker and Tomlinson and Melksham

its not 2018 for Jetta and Melksham form!

And practice matches for Tommo  and Baker do not Come up with BEST anything!

Hunt lucky probably as his best form is 2017!!!!

And really if one of our Key position players goes down where is any backup ie Petty or Tmac or M.Brown I suppose we can swing Weid around  a bit. 
 

In reality Werridee Your selections are  like Goody's very  conservative and no dare or flare! 
And very 2018 ish!  
Ang you have had about  20 goes at it this season so far.  

I haven't got Jetta in the team. Baker needs more than just a few practice matches to cement his spot. Tomlinson is better than Petty if you watched the 2 practice matches you would understand why. Hopefully he will eventually be better but not ATM. Melksham is still better than what we have.

Probably start Bertram on the ground ahead of Bennell & maybe Miller ahead of Bate. 
Apart from that looks good ?

fair calls mate

I was just glad 11 years ago me had the sense to not select Scully.

Found this in my drawer at work today.  massive throw back!  At least we had Jurrah to watch back then

Well as I said W changes need to be made and  2018 be buried from our form line. 
Refusal  to do this  is Restricting the developiment Of Our team by not giving youth an opportunity.

i Think  it's our bottom 6 players That are Importantly preventing us improve snd we Need  to fast track These players.

I don’t see the point in not playing Scully, Strauss and Maric; they’re the future- get them in there!

Tapscott injured?

Have got Melk in and Jets  !

Jets too slow and Melky has not played much so nit match fit and outbid form fir 2 years!!

Hibbo played last night and his season last year was good considering the pressure he was under.

Put ANB on wing move Bowey to BP snd Tommo to CHB Lever to HBF and Jones instead of Melky.

Thats about best but would still have Tommy at FF snd Majak  as Interchange.

Wow. Looks like we’re set for a golden period ahead. Watts Scully Trengove Morton Maric Strauss Grimes Rivers. Frawley and Jones look like great players already. Add in experience of Sylvia, Moloney, Bruce, Davey, Green, Jmac. Jamar and Martin make a good Ruck division.  Add in excitement of Jurrah.  Good times ahead.  
Well it was a reasonable year 2010 (8 wins 10 losses 1 draw - some close losses too - smashed the Swans) and it was a feeling of hope -it was looking ok for the years ahead ... until it all fell apart with GWS + Suns intros, injuries, Scully defection, lack of development Jurrah-going and the stupidity “sacking”junior.

Like Melksham, Jones, Jetta, Tmac, Harmes, Brayshaw, Hunt?  I think we are too readily blaming our least experienced.  It is our mid tier players that need to really just get better.  Seems Lever has really improved so this year, we need more guys in their mid 20's realising their potential and playing with consistency.

Really want us to grab a fast skilled wingman somehow and also a back pocket to replace Jetta. I’m happy the other 20 blokes that I could see on the last Saturday of the year. Fit and firing.

Melksham needs to lift big  time 2020 form not good enough.Not in my team .

Petty for Tommo at CHB  

Bowey for BPocket and ANB for wing.Plus Tmac  if in form for Interchange and Tommo on bench also with Harmes HFF and Hunt the medical sub. Sparrow or JJ on Intetchange!

Probably  wouldn't line up Trac and Clarry put Gus  there' snd Trac  on HFF.

Would like Say Laurie or Rodman to be in 23 really.

    THE ICING ON THE QUAKE by Whispering Jack

    It’s not Christmas yet but if the Melbourne wins its last game of the 2021 season, then many of its fans will be celebrating early. There already are some parts of our town where the pending festivity is preordained. Houses are decked out with red and blue banners and streamers, some of which appeared as early as last Saturday week, on the morning after the Demons’ magnificent 83-point crushing of Geelong in their preliminary final at Optus Stadium. While it’s great to see the numbers of lo

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE POINTY END by The Oracle

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition t

    TAMING THE LIONS by George On The Outer

    With nine finals debutants in the side, the Melbourne Football Club had a daunting assignment ahead of it in the First Qualifying Final — to overcome the competition’s highest scoring side, the Brisbane Lions. In the end, the Demons accomplished the task by putting the bite on their opponents on their way to taming the Lions and recording a 33 point win that propelled them into one the two Preliminary Finals of 2021.   It was one of those debutants, Luke Jackson, who put the bite in more

    RETURN TO NEVERLAND by Whispering Jack

    The greatest Demon A HIGHWAY OF DEMONS by Whispering Jack CHAPTER SIXTEEN - RETURN TO NEVERLAND  I have a six year old grandson who recently took up the family tradition of following the Demons. He had his first taste of the game a few years ago when he went to the “G” with his parents to watch the 107-point massacre of Carlton and he went to another game in the following season which was also a W for the Dees. But his appetite for the club has grown exponentially this year and wh

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position. In a remarkable game, it all came down to Max having to kick the winning goal after the final siren, something which s

    SKIN THE CATS by Whispering Jack

    The task ahead for the Demons as they wend their way down the Princes Freeway to Geelong on Saturday night will be to skin the Cats. For them to come away with the points from this game would mark an historic occasion for the club as it will finish on top of the ladder for the first time since its last premiership year, 1964. And it was in that year, that a trip to Corio Bay to meet the reigning premiers in Round 12, was one of the catalysts for Melbourne’s surge to the flag. It was a top o

    REACH FOR THE STARS by George on the Outer

    It was a game of great significance for the Melbourne Football Club. A win would see them keep top spot on the ladder with one round remaining. To achieve top place in the Round for Reach when we are all inspired to “Be Like Jim” and reach for the stars was a great way of honouring one of our heroes. All the better given that it was done by way of an emphatic 41 point win against Adelaide! It is worth remembering that, but for the umpiring mistake in the previous encounter with the Crows, t

    TICKETS PLEASE by The Oracle

    A lot of water has passed under Princes Bridge in the five years since Melbourne last met Adelaide on the MCG. The Crows were riding high at the time while the Demons were mid-table and scrambling for a win to stay in the race for the finals. The 30,000 fans who had tickets to the game were thoroughly entertained by a close, high scoring affair that ended in tears for fans of the home team. Not even an eight-goal second term could help them.   Times have changed.    In the fi

    ELECTRIFYING by George On The Outer

    What more can they throw at the Demons of 2021? Covid restrictions, hubs, aircraft circling between airports before landing for games and now a match stopped for 30 minutes to give a flagging opponent its second wind? To date, none of those distractions has swayed the team from their winning objectives. The game against West Coast in Perth can be marked on their report card as another positive outcome after yet another test. There was much at stake for both sides.  Melbourne had t
