CHANGES: Rd 19 vs Western Bulldogs



Recommended Posts


It doesn't matter who comes in a loss is a certainty. Most mentally weak club in the comp and everyone knows it. I'm furious at the club. They let us down time and time again no chance of a flag this year they are cooked.

Six changes

Ins  

1. smart footy 


2. accurate goalkicking 

(Jackson Spargo Brayshaw Pickett to have 50 kicks for goal as detention homework ) 

3. tackling to stop the player getting the disposal free  

4. Disposal to a target 

5. Winning centre clearances

6. lower the eyes to a target in forward 50

 

out  

1. irrelevant disposals by midfield 

2. little handballs by oliver and Petracca to no one !!!! 

3. Kicking to the pockets all the time 

4. Bombing into contests in forward 50 

5. Ruck tap to the opposition 

6. Key forwards playing behind their opponents

In - psychologist +/- psychiatrist (who could also be offered to long suffering fans), and a goal kicking coach. 
Hoping the former can get into the minds of players who think playing bottom teams NB 15,16,17 is going to be a walkover. 
Oue - bath water, egos.

Ins - Wiedeman, Bowey, Harmes

Outs - Jackson, Rivers, Viney

Am sure to get howled down about Jackson, however, he isn't providing enough and I thing right now, Wiedeman would deliver more in that Ruck/Forward role.

Not a bad thought with Jackson for Weideman. Jackson will be awesome but his output is waning and gave us little when around the ball tonight. Weideman should provide more of a threat forward as well.

We need to have a serious conversation about Jack Viney. His skills are just not good enough. He butchered every disposal tonight. I love his hardness and attack on the ball but Vanders can do that.

I'm with you on Jackson. Give him a spell. Does not impact the game at all.

I’m flat, not sure where to start.. our centre work isn’t working, so need to start there. I’d like to bring Bowey in, Viney needs to go.. Max looked so flat tonight, was taking pills at half time.

This isn't about changes to personnel, it's about changes to attitude.

We need to work out why we don't apply ourselves against bottom 10 sides the same way we do in prime time games against top 8 sides.

In saying that, we need to think about Viney's role.

Spot on.  All the basic thinkers will go straight to AVB to be dropped, however, please look at his disposals tonight that resulted in 3 goal scoring chains, plus a beautifully weighted ball for Fritsch to run on to late.

Viney doesn't provide you with that.  AVB can give you Viney's tackling pressure and hardness around the ball as well.

Also, got to find a way to get better ball users such as Bowey into the side as Viney, Langdon, Brayshaw & just constantly kill you with their disposal.

If we're going to blood a couple and give a rest to others then I'm all for a big list of changes

Declase in also

Tmac rest

Time to start preparing for Finals, ensure there's some fresh legs

Viney needs to go. He is making our midfield too defensive and he’s a liability with ball in hand and can’t get off the ground fast enough to defend. 
I don’t think we need another inside mid to replace him, especially with Vanders playing well enough to justify getting another game next week. 
Maybe Melksham can help us hit a target going inside 50, but most likely he just won’t do anything for 98 minutes. 

I am guessing no change. 
 

Edit: lol at people suggesting we drop Brown. Literally the least of our problems. Had a better game than Tmac.

My god Viney is an absolute mess of a footballer.

People saying that he'll get dropped are kidding themselves. Goody absolutely loves him and he's just picked up 32 of the most useless stats ever. So they'll look at that as a win.

To think the club signed him up for 5 years..

Luke Jackson needs a serious spell. Love the kid but he's done nothing for about a month and while he's ruck work is good he's a wasted space up forward. I'd bring Weideman/Daw or if we need to go bit smaller then bring in Melksham.

    LONG AGO AND FAR AWAY by Whispering Jack

    When the combatants that are due to face off on Monday night at Optus Stadium last met, it was 11 days after the World Health Organization had declared the Covid19 outbreak a global pandemic. In Australia, the first cases had just come to light, including visiting US actors Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson, the toilet paper panic was in full flight and the world was starting to reel in anticipation of impending disaster. Half an hour before this last game of the opening round was due to comme

    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
