GAMEDAY: Rd 16 vs GWS



Recommended Posts

On the podcast, Binman (or was it George?) recommended Steven May to mindToby Green.

So who takes Himmelberg and Finlayson?
I think it should be Michael Hibberd on Green, leaving May, Lever and Petty to cover their tall forwards.

Should Harmes chase Whitfield?
Interesting that they dropped de Boer, who did ok on Clarrie last time. Do they have another tagged.

Who is Clarke??

I am expecting a quick, out of the block start. It has been something we have not done well for a while.

We cannot give them a sniff, as confidence and a run on will give GWS a chance to take the lollies.

Can they play the MCG? My guess is they learnt a lot from the loss last week there. They will be better for the run even with their disruptive build up.

We have to hit them early. Hoping for accuracy and efficiency.

We are bringing effort and fight to our matches, and have a smart approach when we don't have the ball.

Hoping for some beautiful ball movement and connection with our forwards.

Really feel it is time for a dominant performance. I want to us gel and play some outstanding footy. Make a statement about our skill, fitness, fight, and cohesion to the oppositions. Show them they will need luck, hardness and work, to even get close.

Put the fear into them all.

Go Dees.

May was on Toby Greene at stages in round 3 and had goals kicked on him in the last quarter after Greene gave Jetta a bath.

Finlayson needs attention. He’s an absolute dead eye around goals.

I think they’ll really make us earn the win today and I hope we don’t them lightly. They’re a highly talented midfield on paper.

Heres hoping our fwd line boots enough.

I think they will.

Sadly i have a covid vax at half time.

But suppose I am grateful.

Go Dees.

How good is footy to cheer up this Nsw lockdown we have here.

We have to kick straight with goals, the earllier, the better - and maintain such a performance. Tags must abound.

I forgot Jv was playing.

He will be better this week so our mids should come out on top.

Heres hoping for a fast start for once and some accurate kicking.

Tmac and Kozzie to have a big day.

I shall be leaving the warm embrace of The Manor for only my second live game this year.

And ........ I fully expect to see a comfortable victory. We shall have clear winners on every line and , the middle of the road Dwarfs, simply will not have the answers.

No trains from Scumbury today so I shall give the Merc an airing. The Maid shall be left  in charge (temporarily of course ) to oversee the victory celebrations.

Dees by 26.

It was me jjc.

You might be right and hibbo might get the job on greene. He has been good against players like Martin and papley.

I just think greene almost plays as a big, and out of the square too. And May is strong enough and he is best close to goal, rather up too high. 

Petty can take Himmelberg.

And even though finlayson is tall, he plays almost as a high half forward (like tmac) and I reckon hibbo can take him with Lever coming across for support.

Morning all. With a forecast more hebridean than antipodean today I'll be looking for a spot near the fireplace at Dr Morse in Abbotsford for my eggs benny. Maybe a cheeky pint at Range Brewing next door before the short commute to the 'G. 

As for the game I'm expecting a really close one so we'll need to be switched on from the get go. Enjoy your day everyone.

Hibberd has returned this year in the finest of form and is just as important part of our defence as May and Lever.

Actually they are all excellent. Best defence around.Hunt was back in form last week too.

Rivers has been a revelation and Salem back to his career best.

My favourite non Dees player is Toby Greene. A mongrel, rat cunning, Rolls Royce player. The perfect blend of steel and silk. If we can contain him we go a long way to winning the game. May to get the job for mine.

Our defence was back to its domineering best last week. I expect a similar strangulation today.

GWS are the type of opponent we have struggled against. We need to be switched on for this.

Hoping to see Viney crack in and inflict some pain.

If we kick straight, a 5-6 goal win. If we don’t, another nervous 10 point win

Both teams are talented, but with the exception of Toby Green, they are mentally fragile when the heat is turned up. Our toughness around the contest, will to win, commitment to team defence and superior fitness will see us across the line by 4 to 5 goals, after a ‘slog feast’ for the first three quarters.  Another one of those games where we seem to hold the upper hand for most of the day, but don’t break away until the last quarter.

Or you could plummet to my level and catch the train replacement bus. ?

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had

    CENTIMETRES by Whispering Jack

    Our game is one where the result is often decided by centimetres; the touch of a fingernail, a split-second decision made by a player or official, the angle of vision or the random movement of an oblong ball in flight or in its bounce and trajectory. There is one habit that Melbourne seems to have developed of late in its games against Carlton which is that the Demons keep finding themselves on the wrong end of the stick in terms of the fine line in close games at times when centimetres mak
