It is too often ignored just how good he is

My favourite from just about his first game. Absolute gun, and I honestly believe he has another level in him as well.

You could see the talent from the get go.If he stays a one club player for his whole career I can see him joining the 300 club.Thank god Neeld wasn't around ,he would probably being playing in a B grade park comp drinking [censored] and enjoying the pie nights with cale ,jimmy at gysberts flat.

Clarry has been very good from day one. Extremely resilient, having played through a heap of his 99 games with a bung shoulder. Definitely has it in him to go to another level, especially with a bit of tuition and guidance from Adem.

I had some doubts after his first year, that he may have been yet another supremely talented MFC recruit who didn't have the work ethic to reach his potential.  Struggled to run out games, in and out of the seniors, lacking defensive pressure, etc.

But that second year was a sight to behold!  Has been an incredibly consistent performer since then and has become a premier midfielder in the competition.

2 AA’s so obviously a very good player as is. Improve his kicking and add goals to his repertoire and he’ll be an all-time great. Looked in really good shape yesterday, primed and ready to go. A brownlow chance maybe??

I don’t know what to make of comments that he is uncoachable. Hopefully Ooze and Chocco can figure out what makes him tick. A genuine chance to leave, he does seem to have an independent air about him. Hopefully this team can finally gets its act together and deliver consistent finals appearances. If not I reckon he’s only 50/50 to re-sign.

For a bloke that had an interrupted pre season, it didn't appear to affect him yesterday as he was in our best 2 players. As others have mentioned his marking was top notch yesterday.

To take the next step, he needs to increase his average season of goal tally of 6 to be in the same conversation as Bontempelli, Danger, Fyfe, Martin etc... 

When Gawn, Oliver, and Petracca are all firing on the one afternoon like they did yesterday, we're probably winning a game of footy against pretty much anyone.

Congrats Clarry you are a real champion. If there is a bloke that could break Neitz's record of games played it's him.

i really liked his game yesterday, thought it was very impressive. he ran with the ball at pace, kicked a goal, spun out of traffic, took a couple of good grabs out on the wing and took off quickly then hit his targets by foot. he seemed to be taking on more responsibility to move the ball to the outside with ball in hand, or by kicking, and then to link up in general play.

maybe Choco and Yze deserve some credit as well for teaching him a few tricks to add to his already dominant ball winning game to become more of a well rounded player, but however it happened, i say long may it continue.

A draft pick we got very right.  Clarry has turned out OK for a chubby pie eating red head from the Bush.

Thank god Sydney matched the Mills bid!

Want to give a fellow Dee an almighty scare?

Text them ‘Oliver Suspended’, just happened to me. A quick search and I discovered it was of the Damien variety for careless riding at Flemington today.....phew.

Loved the dash Clayton showed yesterday on occasions. Round 1 can’t come quick enough.

DD Great call

Clarry played his best IMPACT game IMO  
since 2018. Didn't make a mistake or fumble or ditch out a Hot potatoe handpass. The three things I loved among a great day at the office yesterday from him were:
 

1. Marking strongly on outer wing About 3 gems that ensured the ballot kept going in our direction late in the game.

2. That centre gather sidestep and handpass to Trac then regather AND LONG kick wind assisted GOAL had not one bit of selfishness about it being pure TEAM play. Ooze and Clarry take a bow!

3. His RUN out of DEFENCE in 3 Rd quarter was Breathtakingly fast enough to give opposition a wake up call he was serious about moving this ball forward to score when he kicked it Yo a teammate. 
 

This is the level he can go to just like Trac has done by valuing possessions.Gus needs to follow to fulfill his talent. Over to you Gus and Ooze.

I agree with everyone on here Clayton Oliver showed star quality from day one, he just keeps getting better with each game. I have followed the Dee's for 60 odd years and cannot remember a better first 100 games than Clarry. He has another level in him and as we add more quality around him he will show the footy world why we Dee supporters love him so much.!!!!!!!!!!!!

All of those accolades, plus he’s fighting it out with Strawbs Odwyer as the best looking ginger to ever pull on the Red and Blue.

There’s nothing he can’t do.

Frank Adams might not like that,he was a champ

    MOGGIES MASTERED by George on the Outer

    They say that herding cats is an impossible task but not for the Melbourne Demons who through relentless pressure, scored a commanding 25 point victory in Round 4 over Geelong at the MCG. The team that missed the AFL finals only once in the past dozen years were shown up by the new Demons of 2021 who have recorded their first 4-0 opening to the season in 21 years! Melbourne knew what was coming, and it was Geelong who were shown up for their inability to adapt to the 2021 style of foot

    UNDER MY SKIN by The Oracle

    The story goes that there’s a certain player from Geelong who has been seen in Moorabool Street crooning the old Sinatra classic, “I’ve got you under my skin.” His name is O’Connor and he’s been tasked to achieve one thing on Sunday by his coach, Chris Scott: to get under the skin of a Demon midfielder on Sunday and thereby tag him out of the big contest at the G. The idea behind the tactic is to not only blunt one of the team’s most destructive weapons but to distract them all from producing th

    MAX IN SPACE

    Demon skipper Max Gawn is one big unit at 208cm and lately he’s been standing even taller. We already know that he’s unstoppable in the air when going for a mark but with three consecutive victories to open the season, you might say that he has his head in the clouds.  And that is literally true thanks to a fan at Demonland.com who recently arranged for our big ruckman to go even further than the clouds but way beyond to the edge of space and into the stratosphere.

    CAPITAL PUNISHMENT by George on the Outer

    A 34-point win in the nation’s capital has seen the Demons kill the Giants hopes early in the 2021 season. It wasn’t only the scoreboard, but a succession of injuries to major players for GWS that has put paid to their aspirations. The winning result wasn’t just due to the opposition losing players, but also to the relentless pressure from this 2021 Melbourne side that put them in the winners circle. In past years, a 16 point deficit at the first change combined with a rampant Toby Greene w

    POWER AND THE PASSION by Whispering Jack

    The Demons ran out for their Qualifying Final match against the Fremantle Dockers at Casey Fields as the sounds of Midnight Oils’ “Power and the Passion cascaded over the mainly friendly pro-Melbourne crowd. It was a far cry from the season opener at Carrara in late January where few of their fans were in attendance in high 20’s heat and humidity and silence greeted every score from the slow-starting Demons. They ran away from the lowly Suns, won comfortably in the end and followed that with ano

    BREAK OUT by Whispering Jack

    Despite the chaotic events occurring in Canberra over the past few weeks, one thing is for certain. This weekend’s game at Manuka Oval in the nation’s capital between the GWS Giants and Melbourne will decide which of Scott Morrison or Leon Cameron is the most under the pump at this point in time.  This time twelve months ago, the Giants were coming off a season in which they had played off in a grand final. They opened up their 2020 campaign with a resounding 32-point victory in round 1 aga

    MARVELOUS PRESSURE by George on the Outer

    Is this a new form of Melbourne which has suddenly emerged in 2021?  In the past, whenever the pressure was applied, the team would falter early and as a consequence, it would more often than not, be forced to confront its own self-inflicted failure. But perhaps not so this year. The match at Marvel Stadium against the Saints provided an insight into how creating pressure, actually relieves it on the club, players and coach. Right from the start, Melbourne was there to make a stat

    STUCK IN THE MIDDLE by The Oracle

    Throughout the off season, St Kilda was touted as an improver and a possible challenger for a top four position mainly off the back of another good trade and draft period at the end of last year. Then in Round 1, the undermanned Saints made a shaky start and almost succumbed to the Giants but they managed to come home from a wet and woolly Sydney with the four points intact. For Round 2, they have a couple of handy players returning so they come into the the game at Marvel Stadium choc

    A SCRAPPY, SLOPPY SUCCESS by George on the Outer

    After what seemed like an eternity without Footy in Melbourne, the Demons and their fans produced a scrappy, sloppy yet successful return to the MCG. Yet is was against an interstate team from the furthest reaches of the country, but the 21K fans who made it through the gates, was way below expectations for numbers.  Sure it can’t have helped with all the difficulty that Ticketek imposed just to get a ticket, and since you just couldn’t walk up, perhaps the number wasn’t that surprising.

    UNFINISHED BUSINESS by Whispering Jack

    The Melbourne Football Club has unfinished business with Fremantle after that unexpected loss in their previous clash at Cazaly’s Stadium in Cairns cost it a place in last year’s finals campaign.   Back then, the tired Demons spluttered listlessly through the humid conditions in tropical far North Queensland playing in and losing two games in the space of four days and against two lowly clubs. The end result was much more than an embarrassment for the club given what was at stake at th

    PRACTICE PUMMELLING by George on the Outer

    Was this a practice for what lay ahead for the Demons in 2021 or was it an outcome to expect because it was used as a true practice game? Those of us on the outside will never know, but a 39 point loss to the Western Bulldogs was a pummelling in anyone’s language. We can draw some consolation from the players that Melbourne put on the field, with Toby Bedford, Jake Bowey, Kade Chandler, James Jordon and Tom Sparrow each getting a guernsey whereas they probably would not normally be in the f

    A WALK IN THE PAST by Whispering Jack

    On Monday night, the Melbourne Football Club handed out four life memberships. Two of those awards went to men who are long gone. Charles ‘Chubby’ Forrester and James ‘Jas’ Byrne played for the club in the 1870s, even before the Victorian Football Association was formed. The other two are current skipper Max Gawn and swingman Tom McDonald, who almost left the club at the end of the pandemic-affected 2020 season. Some fans might have raised their eyebrows and wondered whether the emphasis on hist
