POSTGAME: Rd 12 vs Sydney



Recommended Posts


Posted (edited)

Can’t blame the umpires when you play like that. Dead in the water, Collingwood licking their lips for QB. 
 

We kicked the first 5 goals of the game and then could only kick 4 more. Offence is rubbish.
 

At least we didn’t get blown out like vs Freo

Sloppy all night. 
 

Ridiculous panicked handballs crucified ourselves.
Viney and Gawn best.

Probably the first game of the year where 15 minutes in to the last quarter, I still didn’t know who would win. Even last week, it was clear we’d been outclassed by Freo and had waved the white flag. I thought this game was a real arm wrestle. Unfortunately we came up short.

We dropped  the Adelaide and Collingwood games at the same time last year. Is it a pattern. We only just beat Sydney last year at the G, as I remember it. No need to panic yet!

Our lack of connection, hunger and skills for much of this year has been masked by the fact we have played mostly average teams. We've played two contenders and have been shown up - and yet again in circumstances where they play their game of the year. Despite us being premiers, teams still fancy themselves against us.

The Pies will smell blood in the water.

Not that it cost us, but the umpiring was putrid.

Maxy was huge.

That hurt, too many goals from dubious decisions, Swans played well though took the game on. I thought Viney, ANB, Max and Kozzie had great games. Kozzie to the middle we look better when he is on ball. We lost it though apart from the umps, in the air. M. Brown stays.

So many mistakes in the last quarter. I hope it was because we’re loading up on the track and we were just exhausted. Sparrow and Lever had some horrible moments in the last quarter and we missed some very easy kicks at goal at crunch time.

Our form is horrible

No fluency or rhythm at all. So stodgy

Nothing happening up forward other than the odd spark from Fritta. Whats happened to BB?

Maxy immense. Oliver, Petty, Viney not bad. Gud did well last quarter. The rest passengers

Big test for the coaching group now to right this ship. Not panic stations but we need to fix this. Queens birthday game is huge now

Not up to it. On current form we’re a middle of the road team. Defensive pressure poor. Connection into forward line poor. Hawks unreal marking masks how bad our transition was tonight. A lot of work to do for second half of the year.

We have some things to figure out, and quickly.

Decision making with ball in hand. There has to be SOME awareness of the game around you. 

How to handball

Spread from stoppage.

When to play on from a mark/free kick and when not to.

Numerous times players in vicinity of the play standing watching.

Our forward set up.

We only lost by 12 points, but the general play was excruciating to watch as mistake after mistake.

    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.
