GAMEDAY: Rd 08 vs Sydney



Recommended Posts

I reckon we will win in typical 2021 Melbourne style. Close for the first half and then have a Handy 6 goal win

It's actually enjoyable going tot he footy now and seeing this exciting team play. 

Have no idea what to expect tonight. I think we should win but I hate seeing Franklin & Rampe back and our ins aren't giving me much confidence. 

I expect May to take Buddy. Hickey has been in good form to Gawn will have his work cut out and the midfield should be a good battle. 

Heeny out helps. If we lose at least we will still be top 2 but win and we can go even more clear of the team below us.

Do we have one of the best forward lines going around?

Cats fwd line last night was awesome.

We are just yet to see its full potential.

If Tmac can play his best, hes as good as Hawkins maybe.

Fritra is our Rohan and Bbb can be better than Cameron.

If Tmac loses form he will be replaced by Sw.

Tmac was not good last week but has shown this year he is still a great player especially as a foward.

Add Luke J to the mix and its a deadly combo with our smalls in Spargo and Kozzie.

So since the others have shown great effort it hangs on Bbb to strut his stuff.

Thought he was quite good last week and aside from two goals was instrumental in two more.

Geelong showed the power of three proven dangerous guns in their attack. 

I think we will tonight.

So glad that Frittas playing.

Dees by six with Swans missing lots of chances instead of us.

Trac to tear it up with Kozzie and Harmes surprising many with a great performance.

2 x Free Adult reserve seat tickets for tonight.

Have been away and totally forgot that I opted in to get tickets via our memberships so happy to give away to someone that hasn’t yet organized tickets for themselves.

Seats are on Level 2 and each adult seat comes with a child seat (age up to 5) with it - but the child seat was free / included so doesn’t have to be utilized.

Direct Message me on here if keen.

Cheers

Any word on if Melksham will play since his wife just gave birth today?

If he’s out, do we think Sparrow or Jones will be the late in?

It would appear that the MCC is booked out tonight so is it going to be a big crowd?

Melbourne won't be flat today. They had their bad one against the Kangas.

Sydney have had a disrupted week, with covid scare. Coaches missing and anxiety states will have its mental effect, hopefully in a negative way. There will be less time to review and work on the lessons from the game against the Cats.

Tracc to show why his big contract was appropriate, with other new contracted players standing up together, Oliver and Salem. It will be a sign of our stability. 

Need more selfless acts, so it is action and not a thought bubble.

Angry Dees, time to belt this lot and continue to change the dialogue of, "no fight". We are hard to beat, as we play for the 120 minutes. Sydney will have to be on to keep up with us.

BBB to do more after he got the "rust" out of his system.

Backline to keep on keeping on.

I want to see a more active midfield at the stoppages.

Our runners and link players have been breaking lines and assume this will happen again. Sydney could work hard to block, nulify and disturb our flow. I expect a dour game from them as they try and stem the flow of goals. If they try to play in our forward area and counter, they will be smashed because our conversion of inside 50 is much better than in the past and our backs are smart and have a great structure. 

Our ball movement, execution and decisions, and the pressure we bring to the game has been outstanding. 

Training with a smile, then with the seriousness of the knowledge that we are hunted. We will turn that round and hunt those underfed Swans. We are confident, with plenty of buy in and a good system.

Challenging games will get us up and going. Do the basics well, and trust in our way.

Own the G, Go Dees.

I’m nervous af right now. I liken game day to going on a long haul flight: you’re nervous/excited/anxious on the day of, leading up to the bounce (take-off), you can only relax once the siren goes and we’ve won (touchdown) and you hope like hell that the people around you in forced close proximity don’t ruin your experience with nasty belligerent behaviour - talking to you, Collingwood thugs - (crying babies, passenger next to you who won’t stop talking to you and has bad breath). 
That last bit happened to me last year . 15.5 hours of drivel and halitosis. 🤮

Probably out to prove North were so wrong.

That aside from last years poor showing that he really still is the best full forward in the comp like he was in 2019,2018and 2017.

And now he is a team better than North will do even better.

Go bbb.

    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
