Typical Melbourne. We come to a game where the team is battling and we are doing well, then we just expect it to all work.

Defensive effort is terrible, ball use is putrid. Bombing the ball in long and hard each and every time. 
Oliver needs to step up and take control if he wants a decent contract.

Coaching team needs to work the f50 entries out right now. They are down a player. Should not lose this. Let’s see if we are different this year or not.

We are second to the ball every time, no one to blame but ourselves.

It is actually bouncing to them off every mis kick. We had 3 blokes running at the ball and it bounced through them and that was probably the 20th time so far.  Keep at it, as we outplayed them that quarter and hopeful we get the run of the bouncing ball .

Wow GWS playing pretty dirty and getting away with it, so many borderline frees not being paid to us.

They've been fortunate with things going their way, but reckon we'll blow the game open at some point in the second half.

Oliver is a petulant child. Lets hope he goes to Collingwood instead of petracca. 

The umpiring is pathetic.

GWS simply going harder and blocking any run by creating congestion.  Ugly game

Careful there - it’s a sensitive topic here. I think he is good but not worth more than 800K / year. A superstar nails both those goals.

Stop blaming the umpires we are playing poorly. At this stage we should run over them in 2nd half because they have injuries and their effort isn't really on the scoreboard.

McDonald and Fritsch are horrendous.   Absolute witches hats.

Weid and Brown will soon replace them thank god

I think in the 1st half tmac was given no order to move from ffwd.

Fritta turned the tide.

Gws were very good crowding our fwd line but as the game pans out wont be as successful.

 

All the hallmarks of last week. Poor umpiring, poor goal kicking.

But like last week we have regroyped and closed the gap.

Now its time for oliver, trac, tmac and viney to lift.

Kozzie to break out.

Who is going to score our goals?

If we can’t over run them with the amount of injuries they have (plus the long trek from Perth) then we can’t say we’re a chance of much this year. It right there, but we have to keep our intensity going for the full quarter. Still having dips in and out. 

The other point of concern is that when the ball hits the deck in their forward half they look VERY dangerous. We don’t have our marking game going back there and it’s largely due to good tactics from the Giants, they aren’t giving Lever, May and Tomlinson runs at the ball. 

The good news is that there were signs we adjusted to our forward entries, but if Max is going to play forward he can’t rely on his height. He needs to lead. Personally I’d prefer Max to remain in his position behind the ball and be a sweeper, keep Jackson as our forward.

We've got this. Completely up to us. 

We'll win this game by 6 plus goals.

Putting this here for future reference.

Agree. Play him out of the goal square and move our other forwards away to create space.

Need to play above the umpiring. Don’t let them control key moments in the game, which unfortunately they are. Clarrie will open it up this half. Too strong and fit not too.

Especially since the former cant kick and the latter has redeemed himself.😁

I want someone behind the pack crumbing more often.

Gws 2 players down if we don’t run over the top of them then Darren Burgess might aswell head off to Adelaide a bit sooner 

They still have 21 playing so one down.

I deliberately held off posting at quarter time after a lot of bad habits crept back in. Glad to see an adjustment in that quarter but need to keep at it now. Lots of room for improvement.

We don’t bend down to pick the thing up, that’s why we miss it.

    DELTA DEMONS by KC from Casey

    There was an ill wind blowing for the home side at Casey Fields on  Saturday but you wouldn’t have noticed if you turned up seven or eight minutes into the second quarter with the scoreboard showing the Casey Demons holding a lead of 7.5.47 to Footscray’s solitary point. Up to that stage, the depleted Dees combination had taken full advantage of the windy conditions and headed by veterans Nathan Jones, Jimmy Munro and Mitch White had came out of the blocks and plundered the Bulldogs’ defence.

    ON THE FLY by George On The Outer

    After spending most of the previous day in the air, flying between Queensland and Victoria, it was hard to imagine the Demons would be at their best.   But this team was on the fly on the field as well and produced a clinical display which saw them record a 98 point win to put aside any questions about the side being out of form.   Certainly, the Suns who have fallen away badly in the second half of the season were their opponents, but with the Demons looking for a confidence boo

    CITIUS, ALTIUS, FORTIUS by The Oracle

    This weekend, the Melbourne Football Club was supposed to embark on a tour that started with what looked like an innocent trip to the country’s sunny Gold Coast. However, the Covid19 pandemic intervened to bring them back home for this week at least. Next week, it’s off to the West Coast but conspiracy theorists are already suggesting that this interstate sojourn could take the team all the way across the country over the next month and indeed, there are cynics who even believe that it could bec

    THE YEAR THE SNOWFLAKES FELL by Whispering Jack

    The snow that fell on the slopes of Victoria’s mountain districts in the winter of 1965 was not considered good enough to satisfy the enthusiasts. The really heavy snow that season came in two waves further north in July and August. The first descended on the national capital where “Pig Iron Bob” still held sway. Snow flurries touched the landscape all the way across the Blue Mountains. The next big snow extended further north up to the hills around Mackay in Queensland. Snowflakes fell inside t

    DEES GIVE DOGS A BONE by George On The Outer

    First place versus second on the ladder promised to be a precursor to what can be expected in the coming finals race.  However, it was the Demons who faltered and gave the Bulldogs a bone to feed their hunger just weeks out from the end of the season. The win also sent the Dogs to the top of the ladder, a position they are unlikely to cede in the coming weeks, given their fixture. While Melbourne may now struggle to keep a spot in the top four with its draw and will likely depend on the res

    THE WORM WILL TURN by The Oracle

    When I was asked to preview this game, I wasn’t sure whether it was going to be played in Darwin, on the Gold Coast or the MCG. I had no idea as to the identity of Melbourne’s opponent. This would have made for one hell of an interesting match preview so I’m glad that the AFL managed to reorganize its fixture to enable a game … any game at all … to proceed in Round 19. We’ll worry about the Gold Coast Suns or whoever they put us up against when the weekend’s done and dusted and if and when

    DRAWN AND DEEFLATED by George on the Outer

    1st v 17th ... it would seem a sure one way contest between the Hawks and the Demons but it was not to be with the game finishing in a draw, the only positive being the Demons still retain their top spot on the ladder. Melbourne was taught a football lesson by Al Clarkson, who with limited resources, just instructed his players to scrap, fight and surge the ball forward.  It stifled the Melbourne free flowing style of play and denied them the opportunities they could normally expect.

    PINK RAIN by Whispering Jack

    There is no certainty about life under a pandemic. You wake up one morning without a care in the world; the sun’s shining and it’s a beautiful day. An hour later, everything’s up in the air, the entire state is on high alert and the apartment complex next door’s in lockdown. The simple decision you had to make about buying a ticket to the footy at the weekend suddenly might get put on the back burner. There are other things in life to prioritise and on top of that, they’re predicting rain for th

    COR BLIMEY by KC from Casey

    In years to come, the old timers will talk in wonderment about the “Avalon Avalanche” that hit Werribee’s Avalon Airport Oval on a mild winter’s afternoon at about ten minutes after the halfway mark of the game between the local Tigers and their cross town rivals, the Demons from Casey. At that moment in time, the game was poised as if on a knifepoint. Up until the main interval, it had been the visiting team which had maintained the lead from the start but it had struggled to entirely asse

    POWER FAILURE by George on the Outer

    South Australians should be well familiar with the damage that storms can do to the power supply.  But Port Power forgot those lessons on Thursday night football as they watched the Melbourne storm descend upon them from across the border and ruin their hopes of a top four placing. Just as equally, the win to the Demons cemented their spot in the top two and sent out the message that a team who had been going around in circles for the past couple of weeks, has in fact, turned into a cyclone

    CASEY SUFFER FIRST DEFEAT IN TWO YEARS

    The circumstances were a little unusual last Saturday night as KC from Casey was unavailable to report on the Casey Dees due to work commitments. On the ground things were somewhat unusual as well given that, although there was a game to be won on the night, preparations were also being made for the forthcoming Thursday night clash against Port Adelaide with Ben Brown rested for large slabs of the evening. It turned out perhaps, to be a stroke of genius for Melbourne with Brown making a strong c

    WEATHERING THE STORM by Mel Rundle

    The magic of Melbourne’s magnificent start to 2021 is beginning to wear off. In its past six matches it lost to three teams that were outside the eight, out of form —  teams which it had very little trouble bearing last year. This week, the temperature is turned up even higher with the hard fought spot in the top four at risk. The really ominous factor about the Demons’ upcoming Thursday night meeting with Port Adelaide this week is that it is due to take place at the very place where its dec
