Last years was on reputation. This year she’s just an ok player. Can’t find the space she used to. The players without balance or strength in congestion aren’t doing well under the heat teams can put on. 

Paxy was great last year! Won our BnF too. Not sure where you are coming from but don’t agree

she has the most touches today. A bit rusty this year so far but still quality

As far as I know there are no plans for a new home venue for the women. Gosch's will be re-developed to a full training oval but won't host games. Casey is not convenient but I've got used to driving out there now

I don;t think i'll go to the game today. Too hot. Hope the girls can handle the heat ok. Running around in 33 degrees is no fun

Maybe they can get some game at a Princes park or punt road? It’s crazy to be ‘Melbourne’ and not play in Melbourne. It will be difficult to build a fan base

All over and a big win to the Dees. Having the advantage of the wind in the final quarter on a hot day works wonders.

Floodgates. 

Saints not disgraced. Scoreline flatters. We managed to force the ball into the forward line and individual skills then delivered, rather than much system.

Got the percentage boost after all. Great final quarter but pretty ordinary up to that

Play like we did til 3 quarter time next week and Adelaide will beat us easy. Hopefully thats the dodgy performance out of the way and we can put together a 4 quarter effort next week. We'll need to if we're to beat the Crows

Go Dees

Well done to St Kilda for the first three quarters.
They really tackled well and plugged up the holes across the ground to block up our running game.
Our defence did pretty well early on.
Great last quarter and a bot like the blokes last year. As long as we keep winning, that's all that matters.

Should be a cracking game next week.

Seemed a pretty good local attendance here today!

It took us til the last quarter to break the shackles. Lauren Pearce is a freak will be the difference between us winning the premiership or not. Good win but must start better against the Crows if we are to win that game.

Harris: Round , 1 goal; Round 2, 2 goals; Round 3, 3 goals...

Paxy, lots of tissues, yes, but pretty low on effectiveness this week. Right week to have a 'lapse' (as it turned out...)

Saints were good for 3 quarters but on a hot day like today you have to forgive some of the poor passages of play. The most concerning early on was the handball situation. There is too much of it and how many times did they handball to a player that was not clear of an opponent  and how many times were the handballs to a player running past completely off skew. 

Tayla Harris played well. A very good mark.

Hore was good but a little inaccurate.

Fitzsimon played another good game and got better the longer the game went.

Hanks and Paxman were good as well. Paxman has been closely guarded by our opponents.

Colvin, Birch and Heath were good in the backline.

    GRAND NEW FLAG by Meggs

    Daisy was at pains to tell everyone who asked that the grand final story was NOT the Daisy Pearce story.  She wanted people to focus on the Melbourne Football Club, our wonderful players and non-playing teammates, her legacy buddy head coach Mick Stinear, the assistant coaches, the Club volunteers, the Board, the administrators, #DeeArmy, all supporters, in fact anyone who bleeds for the red and the blue.  But it is also a bit about the pioneer, role model, mother who is Daisy Pearce

    EYES ON THE PRIZE by Meggs

    The Stinear/Pearce partnership has evolved over the 7 AFLW seasons and they have built a team with talented, committed footballers who play for each other and execute a highly entertaining brand of footy. On Sunday can a premiership be added to this legacy? This may well be the last time we see Daisy in the mighty red and blue as she contemplates her start date for a coaching role ‘Down at Kardinia Park’.  Last week’s sensational sealer in the Prelim showed everybody that Daisy could s

    DAISY’S DEMON DRIVE by Meggs

    On a blustery Saturday afternoon when the conditions affected marking skills and the ball bounced unpredictably, the Mighty Dees stuck fat against a determined Kangaroos outfit to break away with two final quarter goals to none to win AFLW Preliminary Final 2 by 17 points — an all-time high winning margin between these two teams.  From the outset it was a fiercely fought contest with Melbourne unable to find the ball in space. North really amped up their one-percenters an

    NOT A MOMENT TO MISS by Meggs

    The AFLW Season 7 fixture was carefully crafted to purposely handicap the better teams and give the expansion and developing sides an easier draw.  Nonetheless, this weekend’s Preliminary Finals will showcase the Lions, Demons, Crows and Roos, teams widely accepted as the best 4 in the competition.   In Friday night’s Prelim 1 the minor premiers, Brisbane, will start warm favourites at home against Adelaide.   On Saturday afternoon at Ikon Park, Prelim 2 between Melbourne and North is

    STICK TO YOUR GUNS by Meggs

    The Dees convincingly overcome the fast-starting reigning-premiers Adelaide to win by 21 points in a fiery Qualifying Final match at Ikon Park on Friday evening.     In that first quarter Adelaide jumped out of the blocks kicking their first goal inside 20 seconds finishing with 3 goals to nil. All was quiet at Ikon Park.     Melbourne, having easily outplayed lesser opponents over the past six weeks took time to ratchet up their intensity.  But, by mid to late first quarter, the Dees be

    HEAVYWEIGHTS by Meggs

    AFLW heavyweights Melbourne and Adelaide kick off the AFLW Season 7 Final Series with a massive Qualifying Final clash at Ikon Park this Friday night at 7:10pm.  The game promises to be a cracker.   Last season’s Grand Final combatants last met in Round 1where Melbourne came away with a strong 18-point victory at Glenelg Oval. The Dees will be hoping to replicate the result and move directly to the Preliminary Final.    While Adelaide may not have been as intimidating this season as in p

    MISSED IT BY THAT MUCH by Meggs

    Congratulations to Daisy’s Dees on a huge 78-point one-sided win against West Coast in challenging windy and wet conditions at Casey Fields.     The banner celebrating Sarah Lampard’s 50 games was a victim of the wind, but nonetheless Lampy received a warm round of applause from the parochial crowd in attendance.   Melbourne has the double-chance and is excited about its chances in the Season 7 AFLW finals. If this means the Grand Final is played at Metricon and the Demond make it, then

    LIVE IN THE MOMENT by Meggs

    The final home and away match of Season 7, sees the mighty Dees at Fortress Casey hosting the 16th placed West Coast.     A win assures the Dees of a Top-2 finish, with the ultimate placings dependent upon the previous night’s result between Brisbane and Collingwood and the relative percentages.   As our match is anticipated to be one-sided, interest may turn to monitoring the live ladder to see whether or not Melbourne has secured the minor premiership.     The Demons (Lions and Cro

    BOMBED by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne has all but assured itself of a top two finish to the (second) 2022 AFLW season after crushing Essendon by 41 points on Sunday. It now holds a four point lead over third placed Adelaide along with a handy percentage advantage with one round remaining before the finals. The Demons opened kicking with the advantage of the squally wind that often prevails at Casey Fields and for the third week in a row, they kept their opponents scoreless in the opening term.
