AFLW: Rd 6 vs Carlton



Recommended Posts

We're down two players, this could be a game changer. Harris scores from a set shot.

Hore shanks a dolly on goal, we've missed some great chances.

We've had two balls going in on goal only for ridiculous bounces to deny us.

Gee some easy misses that quarter, Newman, Cunningham and Hore and O’Dea’s bounced 180 degrees...it will be a miracle if we get up.

Carlton were very good that quarter and probably could have had more chances turned into goals, but equally we had some great chance that we absolutely shanked. Frustrating, I can see us losing this by under a kick and looking back on those chances feeling we should have won.

One quarter to go, down two players could be tough.

Blues get the all important first goal.

Disappointing result, we were so clearly the better team at half time. Really should've been in front by 3 more goals but failed to make use of our dominance, our players were exhausted by the end being down two rotations and in the end when we had our chances we butchered them. 

Puts us back to the pack and outside the finals spot, lots of work to be done.

Again our old nemesis our forward line conversion and skill 

For the umpteenth time has enough chances but lack skill in finishing 

Please Melb recruit footballers not other players from other codes that MAY be good sports but don't have the footballers instincts.

Desperately need a skilled forward who gets 6 touches and 3 goals 

Cunningham lucky to be on team as no other big forward Give her a run around Th r ground yo get into the game please 

Mivk Stinnear must surely be coaching fir his job in the last 2 games as he has had 4 years of non success to make finals 

Injuries have not hrlped ageing today but same old story of lost chances.

This is that game we always have at least once a year. More of it, more scoring shots, and we get done. 

Mickey at least 3 times per year every year fir 4 years in a row!! We are too dependent upon forwards marking as skill to kick goals on run us almost impossible for us !

Really looked slow and unfit. The injury toll is really hurting us.

Maybe that had something to do with 2  injured players off the ground in the last half  And about 4 ACL injuries this season !

A game of two halves (as they all are, but you know what I mean).  We ran out of players, and (consequently) legs in the second half. Four, and possibly five ACLs  in a season is just [censored] luck, no matter how you spell it !

That may be season over. Carlton one game ahead of us now, and we have Freo and Suns to come. They have Freo and WC.

Looks like we'll be dudded by the conference system again

Can't see how the conference system has done us. Injuries and lack of finishing would be more to the point.. We still had our chances to kick goals and stay in front but lack of composure and more likely skills let us down plus a certain tallish lady in forward line is having a shocker.

Cunningham wasn't the only one to have a shocker O'Dea was terrible too.

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Who would have thought?    Collingwood had a depleted side with several star players out injured, Max Gawn was in stellar form, Christian Petracca at the top of his game and Simon Goodwin was about to pull off a masterstroke in setting Alex Neal-Bullen onto him to do a fantastic job in subduing the Magpies' best player. Goody had his charges primed to respond robustly to the challenge of turning around their disappointing performance against Fremantle in Alice Springs. And if not that, t

    TURNAROUND by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons won their first game at home this year in the traditional King’s Birthday Weekend clash with Collingwood VFL on Sunday in a dramatic turnaround on recent form that breathed new life into the beleaguered club’s season. The Demons led from the start to record a 52-point victory. It was their highest score and biggest winning margin by far for the 2024 season. Under cloudy but calm conditions for Casey Fields, the home side, wearing the old Springvale guernsey as a mark of res

    POSTGAME: Rd 13 vs Collingwood

    Once again inaccuracy and inefficiency going inside 50 rears it's ugly head as the Demons suffered their second loss on the trot and their fourth loss in five games as they go down to the Pies by 38 points on Kings Birthday at the MCG.

    It's Game Day and the Demons are once again faced with a classic 8 point game against a traditional rival on King's Birthday at the MCG. A famous victory will see them reclaim a place in the Top 8 whereas a loss will be another blow for their finals credentials.

    BOILED LOLLIES by The Oracle

    In the space of a month Melbourne has gone from chocolates to boiled lollies in terms of its standing as a candidate for the AFL premiership.  The club faces its moment of truth against a badly bruised up Collingwood at the MCG. A win will give it some respite but even then, it won’t be regarded particularly well being against an opponent carrying the burden of an injured playing list. A loss would be a disaster. The Demons have gone from a six/two win/loss ratio and a strong percentag

    CLEAN HANDS by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons headed into town and up Sydney Road to take on the lowly Coburg Lions who have been perennial VFL easy beats and sitting on one win for the season. Last year, Casey beat them in a practice match when resting their AFL listed players. That’s how bad they were. Nobody respected them on Saturday and clearly not the Demons who came to the game with 22 players (ten MFC), but whether they came out to play is another matter because for the most part, their intensity was lacking an
