Thank goodness for May being steady and reliable and for Hibbards first half, otherwise we would not have been within 15 goals as I read this

Fritsch - good fourth stringer

McDonald - Play him back

And we lost by only 3 point with more scoring shots, more inside 50s, fewer clangers, more clearances, more hit outs, more contested possessions and more frees. Hate to think what would be said if we lost by double the margin.

And what if the last shot a goal had been a bit more to the right.  It's not the players, it's the lack of a coherent reliable system. Dock the pay of the coach until he works it out.

Strewth you can argue TMac’s impact but lack of effort? Got too numerous contests, took one front on and kicked an important goal in a shizen game.

Petracca : Class considering tagged.

Harmes : Underutilised

Tomlinson/LAngford/ Hibberd : Stop Bombing

Viney / :  Get Ball / Disposal  ????

Oliver : Take game on !!!

Gawn : Shining light

Pickett/Rivers/Lochart : Give them time

Mc Donald : Lone big fwd very difficult spot

Fritsch : Suffered from poor delivery

Assessment of May, Rivers and Fritta about the only things I agree with.

Brayshaw was our most effective player.

Smith did some good things.

Viney stood up.

A dismal effort! Give up joeboy. Your analysis is about as incisive as a Lou Richard's prediction of who will win next week! (and Lou's not even around to make that prediction)

A bit harsh on Brayshaw, thought he was one of our best and kicked 2.

Salem should be everyone’s biggest worry. That jog after the 50 was a disgrace. He should be dominating now yet he’s just an average half backer. He’s gotta be up for trade at this years end you’d think.

I can’t stand seeing such scathing criticism of Viney.

It’s hard to think of any player who does more to give his all for his club. He throws himself in , gets the hard ball from impossible positions, then does his best to move the ball on from congestion. What a gutsy team player!  I admire him greatly, and it hurts to see fellow supporters suggesting we should trade him.

Keep fighting for us, Jack, you’re a Demon through and through!

Gawn - hitouts need re-direction

Viney - valiant but flawed

Oliver - coal face warrior

Petracca - offensive instincts wasted

Tomlinson - last chance astray

Brayshaw - opportunism has rewards

Langdon - ever ready man

Salem - kick to win

Harmes - midfield best role

Hibberd - provided needed physicality

Melksham - needs kick up...

Hannan - cameo performance today

Rivers -  second game blues

May -  punch and judy

Fritsch - KFP too small

McDonald - building personal momentum

Lockhart - kept attacking game

Lever - demonland pinup boy

Hunt - strangely off kilter

Pickett - add killer finish

Smith - some positive signs

VandenBerg - appeared to fatigue

Goodwin - call Roosy now!

MFC - melancholy flash cats

I'm not convinced about that. We were woeful. A win would not have hidden that, just at didn't hide the last 2 quarters of the blues game.

I think we played better than what Joeboy thinks.

I don't know why all the hatred for Smith Smith was good. Our backline is not the problem it's the forward line.

MAY - BLOODY GOOD EFFORT

SALEM - UNUSUALLY REALLY QUIET

HARMES - BACKLINE IS BEST

PETRACCA - CREATED SOME SPARK

VINEY - GREAT LAST QUARTER

LEVER - DONE THE JOB

BRAYSHAW - HIT THE SCOREBOARD

GAWN - SHOULD HAVE DOMINATED

OLIVER - NOT HIS BEST

HIBBERD - GREAT RETURN GAME

LANGON - NOT AS PROLIFIC

MELKSHAM - ABSOLUTELY BLOODY TERRIBLE

HANNAN - PREFER UNFIT BENNELL

TOMLINSON - REALLY TRIED HARD

VANDENBERG - WAS REALLY INDERDONE

RIVERS - SECOND GAME BLUES

T.MCDONALD - FINALLY TOOK MARK

HUNT - WAS BARELY SIGHTED

FRITSCH - CONTINUES POOR SEASON

PICKETT - AN EXCITEMENT MACHINE

LOCKHART - MUST REALISE TACKLER

SMITH - REALLY SOLID GAME

 

It's 1 quarter of football that is really letting us down ATM. We must fix it along with the forward line.

I might have watched a different game. Kozzy was all buzz with no impact. Smith was ok. Rivers looked lost. Melksham looked disinterested and has forgotten how to chase. Hannan was ok considering how long it is since he has played at this level. And despite the love for Lockhart on this forum, he simply isn't ready.

No one has ever doubted his guts and determiination. Team players create opportunities for others and link play. Vivey does neither very well and has had a golden run of valuable on  ball time at the expense of others all the while roving under the best tap ruckman in the league. He should be considered for trade on the same terms as all the other players if this season goes that way it might.

Melksham - Dan Butler's position

 

I think a live wire goalsneak would've been more creative around the goals and not wasted all the opportunities Melk did. Why are we playing half forwards deep and trying to turn them into Gary Ablett?

Did I watch the wrong game yesterday? Usually Joeboy's analysis is fairly similar to mine. Sure, there are some differences, but it looks to  me like we watched two completely different performances yesterday.

    PACK YOUR BAGS by George on The Outer

    The scene was captured by the TV camera’s before the match with a view of the Melbourne side’s bags packed next to the team bus to facilitate their flight up north to the AFL hub where they will play their next matches. However, on the basis of the efforts against Richmond, unless things change, and change rapidly, there will be some who will be told to pack their bags on a more permanent basis. Once again, the supporters got much the same story from this match against Richmond, as

    Thankfully they moved this week’s game from Sydney where the sun shines and the virus breeds ever so slowly and almost nobody returns a positive test. The change of fixture comes at precisely the right time to allow everyone in town to head to the MCG on Sunday at around 3:30pm, not to catch up with what’s going on inside the ground but rather, to do what’s fashionable for woke folk in 2020 — pulling down statues. It’s time for Kevin Bartlett and Leigh Matthews to go but you can’t touch Norm Smi

    LESSONS IN LOSING by George on the Outer

    Turn up for the game and look like you want to win it.  Melbourne lost this game to Geelong, a game after a couple of extended breaks, looking like they were at the end of a 22 game season. Right from the start there was a lack of intensity across the board, as the Demons played exactly the type of game that the ageing Geelong list wanted. Geelong repeatedly played possession footy, to avoid having to run those ageing legs, something that Melbourne failed to exploit.  To use the oft quot

    QUARRANTINO by Whispering Jack

    At a little after 4.00pm last Saturday, the MCG ceased to be the centre of the AFL universe. That was when the AFL’s el supremo Gil McLaughlin announced that the Bombers’ Conor McKenna had returned a COVID-19 positive result and declared that the game set for the following day between Essendon and Melbourne was postponed.  What followed was truly the stuff of a pulp fiction novel. We witnessed a suitcase load of mental gymnastics and spin calculated to let McKenna (and the Essendon Football

    When the Melbourne team sang “The Grand Old Flag” last Saturday at Marvel Stadium in the absence of skipper Max Gawn, Ed Langford and Adam Tomlinson who were first time winners at their new club and Jayden Hunt, the leading goal kicker of the day it was passed off as an honest mistake. Taken in isolation, it most probably was accidental but the problem is that little accidents have been happening far too often in the club’s recent history and, in this case, it was symptomatic not only of a day t

    A POINT OF DIFFERENCE by George on the Outer

    It was Melbourne v Carlton at the comics stadium; a game between 16 and 17 in 2019. How could anyone pick a winner?  There had to be a point of difference, and so it would prove to be as the Demons literally fell over the line at the end, by a solitary point. In an almost complete replica of the Richmond v Collingwood game two nights previously, one of the sides (Melbourne in this case) rushed out to a five goal lead in the first quarter, while the Blues failed to bother the goal umpir

    EXPOSED FORM by The Oracle

    Carlton fancies itself to beat Melbourne at Marvel Stadium on Saturday and, based on exposed form, why not? The Blues took it right up to the reigning premiers in their last up start and the Demons were simply horrible against the Eagles at Optus Stadium. That opening game of the season revived all of the nightmares of 2019 for a team that went inside the 50 metre arc 45 times, an advantage of 10 times over the home side and yet lost by almost five goals. Such statistics sum it up for a gam

    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

    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

    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
