Is it possible to have happiness as a MFC supporter? We have spent 55 years thoroughly invested in unhappiness.

Unfortunately the club has inflicted unhappiness for 55 years  and we have history of dropping these games to teams below us...

Looks like Petty for May

Hibbo for Jetta

M Brown for Fritsch. 
 

Brown trained with the forwards, Petty, Hibbo with the backs.

I assume that probably means 22 plus sub... any indication as to who the sub might be?

Nah, don’t think you can tell from the session as they all do stuff in groups, so sub likely just goes to group where he would usually play.

I can’t shake the feeling this week is a danger game, it has all the hallmarks of a team getting ahead of themselves with one eye on next week against the tigers. 

I hope whatever is going on at the club the only focus is getting the 4 points against the Hawks. Adelaide this year have shown that if you have high work ethic and belief any team can win on the day. 

Rewatched the replay of the games against Saints and GWS over the last week. Both were a lot closer than we acknowledge on here. The absence of Fritsch really worries me as he was the catalyse for the come backs in both games, and we will really miss May. 
 

It is important we win and win well. In at least two games so far we have been ahead by more than 30 points before three quarter time and failed to go on with it. We need to start burying opponents as we regularly did in 2018. We so far seem to lack the killer instinct.

Sparrow or Jordan perhaps?

Of those two, I'd assume Sparrow, simply because Jordon is a tackling machine.

I like bringing both Petty and Hibberd. I was worried that bringing in Petty which sounds deserved defensively does not balance the amount of attack from the back half we get from Maysie as well. Whilst Jetta has not been bad he has just been hanging on and Hibbo coming in reinforces the we need to look at ways to continually get better. Brown for Fritta is like for like but I would based on last week and him not playing the Fritta role push Melksham back to medisub.

I was at that infamous match.

Even if we had won, we would have been thrashed by Carlton in the GF the following week.

I would love to be able to get one binman. I am in1b but my clinic tells me not to get excited before June/ July. My best hope is that a lot of people get scared off. I would have two if I thought it would prevent MFCSS!

you are not alone, od. my 98yo mil in nursing home is 1a and has no idea when she will get it. same for rest of nursing home.

A bit of a prediction..... Angus Brayshaw who is finding form and fitness after an interrupted preseason to be BOG in a sterling performance that reminds everyone why he went at pick 3 in the draft.

I have heaps of support for Angus Brayshaw - on song, he is a terrific footballer, capable of really effective excusions into the forward line and finding (almost the only one onfield for us in recent years) that space to do that damage to an opposition.

Highly rated but a midfielder he will always be - Clarry and Viney need  to realise he has always been the source of our outside run and/or carry solution that we have looked tirelessly for through the draft. One day, the penny will drop.

Coincidently just ran past Goschs and only Big Benny Brown was on the track having set shots from outside 50 in a #79 disco Casey jumper. 

That means he's fair dinkum, then. Outside 50s rehearsals, like the sound of that effort. Onyer, Benny!

We so far seem to lack the killer instinct. A little mongrel, like Vegemite, goes a long way.

    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
