I think we are much better this year. The balance of players is better at the foot of the ball. We’ve got some X factor in Kozzie and Trac, some in and under with Oliver and Viney, some outside pace with Hunt and Langdon, and Salem behind the ball with impeccable foot skills. It doesn’t have to be 100% manic anymore. It feels much more composed and controlled.

I also think our back line has given us the confidence to maintain our shape around the ball more, even if we lose a few contests in a row. There’s more trust.

Top post.

Its a very tempered side with different players starring each werk.

We beat them without Oliver doing a single thing. I know they had a lot down on the bench, but Melbourne of old would crumble after Greene kicks those two. We stood up and won big. 
Exciting and important to be 3-0 without Brown. 

COUGH...17 Touches in the second half that #13

And more maturity.

We would have taken 3-0 at the start of the year. Having lost our 2 keys forwards other have stepped up. We are 3rd on the ladder.

Now Geelong. Lets hope we get a good crowd there next Sunday afternoon and make some noise. No excuses for a poor crowd.

Just random thoughts.

Absolutely salivating at the thought of having a fit BBB and Weed in our forward line with the way the game is being played at the moment. Well done TMac in the first couple of games, but if the style of game with the new changes stays the way it has this early in the season... look out.

I think it's pretty safe to say we all thought Kozzie would start kicking multiple goals, but his defensive work compared to last year... wow.wow.wow.wow.

Now we just have to kick the easy goals to keep my blood pressure down.

We are winning with structure and fitness  rather than talent and performance at present. GWS threw everything at us and took their chances. That was a tough hard fought win and we again fought back and then controlled the game. Lots to work on but I will take double the scoring shots and a 5 goal win which ever way it comes. Hunt is starting to grow in confidence and Pickett is just a joy to watch. Looking forward to us sticking it to the cats on the G next week.

Loving the 3-0 feeling!

Ok, Ill start with positives. Langdon, Maxy and Kossie, stars - great game. Also liked Hunt's run, much more effective today.

3-0 and we haven't even played close to our best. I've seen many seasons where we have not played our best, and been 0-3, so yeah, can't argue with that.

As for not playing our best. We are still not converting. Clarry was poor in front of goal, we will need those one day. Maxy missing from 15 is not good, either. We still fade at alarming rates, example being 4 quick goals scored against us in Q1. We were also assisted today by some GWS injuries, no doubt. Got to keep that in mind. Jetta did not look good. Toweled by Green.

We will struggle against the Doggies (who tore us a new one last year), the Swans (who also made us look silly last year) and probably the Lions. Also Richmond. They will come back firing.

It's great being up right now, the wins are awesome as they give us a platform to make a charge this year, but I really hope Goody and the boys are looking at this and know that we can do a hell of a lot better, and will aggressively pursue it. We'll need to be much better to fend off the better teams.

Go Dees.

(I believe)

Nobody will talk about Jackson given Kosi's genius, but seriously how good is he? Some of his pickups were akin to Pendlebury in his prime not a ruckman in his second year. Going to be very very good and allows us to use Gawn as we please. 

Agree. A star. So athletic  - and as good below his knees as any big I've ever seen.

Really glad he slotted his goal too.

And loved his move to grab the ball at centre square bounces. 

Important that he rucknin the last as it allowed Max to go forward.

Good move by goody

The idea that some are suggesting we shouldn’t be celebrating a 3-0 start, without any game being in doubt in the last half of the last quarter, considering we have our two first choice tall forwards out and 5 players who’ve played less than 10 games, is frankly mind-boggling. Or incredible, I dunno. What did you honestly expect?!!!!!

17 inside 50 tackles is off the charts and I’d say the best stat I’ve seen all season. This is what wins games of football and something we’ve struggled with for an eternity.

Even at a few goals down I thought we had them covered, got lucky with their injuries but nice it’s not us for a change.

Solid start boys, Cats are gettable next week for a 4-0 start, bring it on.

To do what I suggested would take real leadership and would make us a better team for it.

What you’re suggesting is closer to the Mark Neeld school of people management.

    EYES ON RED & BLUE by Wilma from West Perth

    It was a great weekend for the Red and the Blue on this side of the Nullarbor.   On Saturday, West Perth bested Claremont by two goals after leading all day with the exception of a few early minutes to take out the WAFL Premiership and on Sunday, Melbourne scored a five goal win over Fremantle with a stunning four goals to zip in the final term.   Again, it was the red and the blue leading nearly all day to record their fifth win from six games.   The ou

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES by The Oracle

    Part One - ZERO HOUR, 9AM The AFL Trade Period begins in earnest at 9.00am amid the announcement of a bombshell by North Melbourne’s 2021 Number 1 draft pick Jason Horne-Francis that he wants to leave the club and return to his home state to play for Port Adelaide.  The Herald Sun is reporting that “Horne-Francis will cite the instability at North Melbourne this year in his first season“ along with a likely continuation of chaos as a result of the uncertainty surrounding coach Alastair

    BLUE VIBE AT IKON by Meggs

    It was such a nice vibe at Ikon on Friday night.     Princes Park looked in excellent condition, a relaxed but modest crowd and President Kate Roffey and CEO Gary Pert in attendance, greeting fans and shaking hands.     It was an evening with little to complain about for Dees supporters, save for some drizzling rain, a few missed scoring opportunities and the fact that the Dees as raging favourites duly took the four points.   Carlton was always going to struggle to cover

    BLUES AWAY by Meggs

    This Round 5 clash against the Blues at Princes Park (officially known as Ikon Park) is a great chance for the Dees to bounce back to the winning circle following our top-of-the-table loss to Brisbane last week.     Carlton will be missing several key players with the pundits calling 10 to nil.  Raging favouritism is never a comfortable thing for Melbourne supporters but we simply must deliver on Friday night.   History has seen these teams play four times since 2017 with the Dee

    LIONS POUNCE by Meggs

    Early Sunday afternoon Meggs was coffeeing in Mornington and witnessing hail, thunder, lightning, rain, wind and feeling the freezing temperatures and knowing all these elements were heading towards Casey Fields.  Oh dear.  The Brisbane coach had said during the week that he wanted the game moved to Marvel because “if you're going to have two of the better teams in the comp playing, (it warrants) a venue and deck that suits the occasion”.  However, Casey Fields was uncharacteristi

    RAINING PREMIERS by KC from Casey

    If the threatening dark grey skies that loomed above Ikon Park before the VFL Grand Final didn’t provide a sufficiently inhospitable reception for our visitors from sunny Queensland, the rains that bucketed down after quarter time certainly did. For years, the Casey Demons have welcomed opposing teams at their home fortress with rain, hail, wind and frosty conditions and it was just Southport’s luck that they met those conditions head on in the VFL’s big dance. They suited Casey’s skillful

    PRIDE OF VICTORIA by KC from Casey

    When Casey Demons coach Mark Corrigan talks about his charges putting their “best foot forward” on Sunday when they take on the Southport Sharks in the 2022 VFL Grand Final, it’s a signal that his team is on a mission not only for themselves but in  the name of their forebears, the Springvale Scorpions, and indeed for the pride and honour of the entire State of Victoria. The VFL club now known as the Casey Demons last won a premiership flag under the name of the Springvale Scorpions but tha

    NARRM AT HOME by Meggs

    For the fourth consecutive week, and the second week as the mighty Narrm, we take on a Top 8 team. Could this match be a preview of the Season 7 Grand Final?   Our opponents this week, Brisbane, stand undefeated atop the AFLW ladder after slaying the struggling Freo, and the unrated Giants and Gold Coast.  After amassing 225 points for and only 56 against, for a percentage of 401.8%, the pundits are claiming the Lions have the best attack the competition has ever seen.   Brisbane

    CHANGES 2022 by The Oracle

    Part 1: The year we stood still (or did we?).  Premiership coach David Parkin who  coincidentally turned 80 yesterday, famously used to say that even a premiership team needs to bring at least five new players into the fold in order to advance from year to year and therefore, if this adage remains true, then the Melbourne Football Club really did stand still in 2022.  Of the players recruited after the club’s premiership in September, 2021, only Luke Dunstan (5 games) managed to provid
