I'd just like to endorse all the other posters in their praise for Goodwin outcoaching Ratten.

Honestly we arrested some serious momentum and changed the game. I can’t remember when we last did that and went on to win. We have some talent on the list. If we manage it well we are going plac

- Get ready to see more #36 on the kids Dees jumpers 

- Fritta to have 1,000  shots this week at training

- Clarry to get more recognition (if we lose him end of year we are screwed) 

- Players need to look at cutting out the cute crap and just do the basics 

- May and Lever held up well (did some clumsy things but that happens0

- Tomlinson played really, really well (hats off to him)

- Tracc another solid game



Should be no change to the team heading into next week

Really liked Jacko in the guts and Max up forward

So much for the st kilda fleet of small forwards. They are an average side.

The youngsters played very well. Some loose handpassing and wrong options at times but we have some real talent.

Must kick straighter. It will cost us if we don;t sort it out.

Good to get the win. 19 behinds is deplorable though, and letting Howard just amble back and take intercept marks is poor form. We need a forward line. Good to see Petracca lower his eyes inside 50 at times, hopefully some of the others saw that and realise that it can be done. Its basic football and we are beyond pathetic at delivering inside 50. Good signs from a lot of players (mostly those not in the forward line). Majority team effort.

Have to clean up our entries into 50 and our finishing no doubt about it.

Smashed them in close and in the center clearances.

Sign Clarry and Tracc ASAP for F sakes Dees hirarchy. Bartlett, Pert get the pair locked away.

Tommo proving the doubters wrong and living up to his contract.

Great win. Clarry, Gawny, Trac and Kosie electrifying. Kossie what a star. Bring on the Giants

And a bit of Practice at Casey next week... Just too costly to keep paying him

He does lead to pockets.

most would think the pockets are a larger degree of difficulty 

bloke nailed a crucial goal...from the pocket. 
 

im satisfied. 😊

While I'm thinking about it, this might be super strategic for next week, but I reckon we do a sneaky marking/kicking practice sesh this week.

GWS won't know what hit 'em.

Tomlinson did very well in the shadow of May and Lever. 

Wherever Kozzie is, the ball will follow him. He's a pure soul, he just enjoys his footy, "having fun." Love him.😘

Over rated till the cows come home, flat track bullies, down hill skiers not an ounce of midfield defensive pressure amongst them.

We won a lot more out of the middle today - some great passages of play. Our turnovers and inaccuracy were the blight on the game. Fix those things - or at least reduce by 50% and we have the makings of a v good team. Loving the toughness this year, also.

So happy, Saints had the better of us for about 10 mins in the second but very impressed with the way we swung the momentum back.

One of Salem’s best games, he was unreal today.

Really good win, especially when we looked in big strife in the second. In the end, we really should have won by 30+.

Our setup behind the ball is first class. I just hope we don’t rely too heavily on winning the ball back in defence, we need to stay ahead of the game and what the good sides will throw at us. But bloody hell, Tomlinson, Gawn, May and Lever just set up another wall.

Viney will be better for the run. Started like a house on fire but then looked really lethargic as the game wore on.

Good day for the Dees!

Really gutsy win for the ladies and (almost) a dominant win for the boys! If only they could kick straight! 

Salem awesome tonight! Oliver great again! Tomlinson our most reliable defender? 
Kozzie so exciting, Swallow, Rivers  and Jordon solid, Jacko getting better each week. Youngsters were good! 
Howard did to us what May and Lever did to Freo last week. 
Need Viney and Brayshaw to do more.

Need to hold marks.

Need to kick straight.

Melksham and Hibberd to come back maybe next week. Then BB and Weid. 

Could be anything this year! Opportunity is there, need to grab it.

Tomlinson gone from average recruit to Mr. Reliable, two excellent games in a row, one of the first picked.

    HOT PIES FREEZE DEES by George on the Outer

    In the Annual Big Freeze game in support of Neale Daniher's fight against MND, it was Collingwood who froze the ambitions of the Demons, and it now challenges them to thaw out their prospects in the second half of the season. Even though Melbourne opened the scoring account, it was quickly countered by Collingwood, as the Demons appeared flat. And even though they held a minor lead at the first break, it was only through a couple of fortunate efforts, but nothing more.  All around

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne supporters are an unusual lot. Their lived experiences over years of witnessing their team’s humiliation at the hands of the competition’s bullies have left them suspended in a Bizarro World beset by a cognitive distortion know as 'mental filtering'. This is a phenomenon that occurs when people focus exclusively and blindly on long held belief systems. They refuse to accept that conditions have changed so when the evidence is present before their very own eyes, their minds are frozen.

    CHANGES: 2021 MID SEASON by The Oracle 

    Since the end of the 2020 free agency, trade and draft period, AFL clubs have had two further bites of the cherry to top up their lists — the supplemental selection period (SSP) and the 2021 mid-season rookie draft (MSD). The main idea behind both was to enable the fulfillment of immediate needs as a result of injuries or unexpected retirements but this year, we have seen the added dimension of straight out recruitment for the future rather than for now. As a consequence, a number of ready

    LION TAMERS by George On The Outer

    In an enthralling game between two top four sides, it was the Demons who tamed the Lions, and propelled themselves into the position of premiership favourite even though the season is barely past the halfway mark. This is because Melbourne keeps on beating those teams around them who might provide a challenge. Not only that, it keeps winning with emphatic displays of resilience and toughness that have not been seen in a Demons side for many, many years. Challenged in the first half of

    DUELING BANJOS by Whispering Jack

    In the classic Australian poem, A B “Banjo” Paterson sought the answer by letter to a question concerning the whereabouts of a drover named “Clancy”. The response from Clancy’s shearing mate was written with a thumb-nail dipped in tar: “Clancy’s gone to Queensland droving, and we don’t know where he are.” Most of us would have felt a little bit that way earlier in the week wondering about the possible whereabouts of the Melbourne team for this week’s encounter against Brisbane. Were th

    DOGGED DEEFENCE by George on the Outer

    “No-one let the Dogs out” was the Demons response for the (former) top side.  The Melbourne defence, capably lead by Steven May and Jake Lever simply suffocated any hopes that the Western Bulldogs might have had about leading the competition at the mid-way point. Instead, it is the Demons who now sit at the top of the ladder, again a game clear, while their supporters are starting to believe that this side is the real deal.  Pity is that those same supporters couldn’t watch their team demol

    LOOK AWAY DEMON FANS by The Oracle

    Last week I predicted a comfortable Melbourne victory for its game against Adelaide. “Something in the order of 61 points”, I opined. Well, after the game, I checked the wording of my preview very carefully from all angles and I have now concluded that I have to issue an apology to Demon fans. I got it wrong. I’m not bitter and twisted about my error in failing to predict the coaching errors, defensive mistakes, lack of forward pressure and, of course, the complete failure of those officiat

    CALM BEFORE THE CALM by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons overcame a sluggish first half to run over the Sydney Swans in the second to record an emphatic 40 point victory, maintaining their undefeated record and retaining top spot on the VFL ladder. The game originally listed as part of the Round 4 fixture but delayed due to a Covid19 scare in Sydney and the scrappy way in which the teams approached the contest suggested that the players were still in delay mode. This applied in particular to most of the 12 AFL listed Casey player

    NOTHING TO CROW ABOUT by George On The Outer

    Melbourne’s nine game winning streak  came to an end in Adelaide with a one point loss to the Crows. Losing to a team that had only won three games for the season, having lost five in a row was certainly nothing to crow about.  All around the ground players collectively put in their poorest performance for the year.  The loss of Christian Salem before the match was critical, as his replacement Nev Jetta is a mere shadow the player he once was. The mind is still willing, but the body no

    CRYING OVER SPILT MILK by The Oracle

    It had to happen sooner or later. Melbourne has been riding high through the season to date and, with the exception of a small bunch of nuff nuffs who are never satisfied with anything, the club has attracted more positive vibes from the community in these nine weeks than it did in the past decade. So it came as no surprise to see some low grade stirring of the sort which only the media could come up with at a time like this. The on line site Zero Hanger came up with an article that opined,

    CATNIPPED by KC from Casey

    After winning big away from home across the first three rounds of the new look VFL competition, the Casey Demons were forced to dig deep against Geelong VFL at Casey Fields on Saturday. The traditional AFL based teams were evenly matched, fielding ten listed players apiece and this was reflected in the evenness of the game and the final margin which saw the home side leading by a solitary point on the final siren. Casey suffered an early blow when Jake Bowey came off with what ap

    BLUES IN THE RED by George On The Outer

    While the Demons’ undefeated run continues unabated now at 9-0 their emphatic 26 point victory pushed the Blues to their sixth loss for the season and deeper into the red for the year. While Melbourne opened proceedings with an early goal, the Blues responded with the next two to grab an early lead.  However, as has happened in so many games this year, the Demons fought back to lead by just over a goal come the first break. This narrow lead was part of a streak either side of quarter t
