Vanders is fine, spoke to him

Tommy Mc just rolled his ankle slightly, he is fine

Crossy pounded Gus and Joel Smith for 2 hours, so no issue there, asked Gus about the arm, tracking fine

Hibberd just had a 'small' cork, trained fully

News on Corey Wagner?

Did Dunkley train? Heard he was in a moonboot.

Smith can't be far away, and while he is running freely, he was still kicking the ball left foot only.  BB and I cannot work out what sort of foot injury can allow one and not the other?  Chandler was also doing repeat 50-100's, but the wrist is something that is only cured by time.  Same for Brayshaw and his elbow.

 

I'm not even sure which foot would be under more stress in a kicking action. The one that kicks the ball or the one that's planted firmly in the ground with all the body weight going through it?

Surely it’s as simple as the cut on his foot that he had over summer? Otherwise it is a bit of an odd one if it continues.

C Wagner walking laps, no sign of Dunkley

I thought Jackson would take time, but he is getting better and better each session, although learnt a bit going one on one with New, despite the height advantage, Nev nudged him off the line of the ball a couple of times to take easy marks, Jackson probably thought he had him for size

The mark from Kossie was a thing of beauty, even Nev was impressed

I bloody missed it as well with the camera

Standouts for me today in the 'footy were Langdon, Jones, Nev and Lieutenant  Lever

Tommy has dodgy ankles, he tweaked one before Christmas. Did it at least once in a game last year.

short of more reconstructions I’m not sure what can be done to strengthen and tighten them up.

would love to see him turn like an athlete and not the QE2 this year

This excites me.

It excites me too unfortunately due to injuries he'll be forced to be played out of position in the ruck. [censored] it's hard to be a Melbourne supporter.

Calm, we have Weid and Tomlinson as well, Weid has been doing a lot of extra ruck work, play Jackson up forward and Weid in the ruck

@Satyriconhome did you wish Nev a happy birthday?

Of course, my lovely lady gave him his card on Monday so she could get her hug from Nev😀😂😁

With the way the players and staff are being overly cautious with any minor tweek or injury, I wonder if this is a result of the review last year where they may have discovered that they didn't give enough attention to even the most minor of incidences, and as a result allowed worse injuries to occur.

If so, it would explain why everything is being checked out and assessed this year. Sadly, it's adding increased anxiety for us fans.

This does nothing to ease my anxiety as you are just shuffling more players out of position. Help! The sky is literally falling.

The season is a marathon, id expect a few niggles with a new training regime compared to previous ones, im tipping since they got teh footy's out pretty much straight away, you are going to get some impact injuries and footy related ankles and corkies. 

 

Id love some clarity on if we have an available spot on the list due to Nietschke knee injury.. can he be placed on LTI list and replaced?

One of the Wagners had his knee iced up at the end of training. AVB was out there but didn’t notice how much he participated.

I was the mouse today and got the cheese, commitments meant I wasn't there until about 9.45.

Over to rehab where the participants were:  Smith, Brayshaw, Chandler, Gawn.  All but Gawn did a ton of running with a little bit of kicking and ball work.  Gawn was running a little bit more freely than Monday I thought and doesn't have a brace but just bandages.  Cory Wagner was there but I didn't see him do anything although when I got there nothing was on his knee but when I left it was iced so I assume he did some running before I got there.  Bennell was at training doing nothing as were Vanders, Petty and Mitch Hannan.  The good news, which has already been reported is that Spargo and Melk were in full training and there was no sign of Hibberd in rehab.

It was a quiet day.  Whites v Blues in ball up and boundary throw in clearance drills.  Blues with Weed as ruck got away to a good start with Oliver, Petracca and Langdon dominating but the whites fought back with Viney, Tomlinson and Jordan working with Bradke. 

We were hoping for some genuine match practice with umpires present but no such luck.  The session ended with some teachings which we thought was interchange stuff.

Other than that not much to report.  TMac's situation is well covered already, Kossies mark was spectacular, Dunkley was a no show, Neita was walking around which was nice to see and we're a week and a bit away from our first hit out.  My preseason duties are all but over as I can't make it on Monday.  It's been great fun down at Gosch's and good to catch up with old mates Saty, George, Tim and Scoop from time to time.

How has Lever's disposal been this preseason?

 

Before he did his knee he seemed quite reliable but last year he was our turnover king coming out of the backline.  I'm hoping with a full preseason and more confidence in his body, he'll be much improved this year.

Is it possible Joel Smith is kicking  on the left because on Wednesdays some players are encouraged to kick left foot only?

The 199cm ruckman being forced to play out of position in the ruck? Not sure that’s something to get too upset over.

The absolute best version of Jackson is if he can be great as a forward and mid but it’s also going to be having him in the ruck so we get 4 mids.

    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

    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?

    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
