i thought the match up was tough already (for similar reasons to why we lost last year), and wish I shared your confidence. Maybe MFCSS is slowly creeping in (cue Powderfinger!), but I am already getting mentally ready for a 2 week self-imposed ban from listening to SEN and RSN and watching any footy shows.

Its about time we flogged someone.

The goings on this week have left me cranky.

Once more, unto the breach dear friends.....

One of the greatest movie versions ever made of any Shakespeare play is Laurence Olivier's "Henry V". As the battle of Agincourt begins, there are three riders, which becomes five riders which becomes nine riders and eventually hundreds. All shot in one scene. We need our team to play like that on Monday. We need to overwhelm the opposition in numbers.

The intensity we need to bring should be comparable to what we delivered in the PF & GF games. Nothing less. We have a week to recover so nothing short of sustained pressure over 4Q is a pass, especially given the slander and negative press the club has been exposed to.

If we can bring that, then i would agree with the OP. 

However, do not underestimate the intensity the Pies will bring. They will be playing high on confidence, they will be expecting a response so they will be ready. Challenge is to blow them out of the water early and put them on the back foot and questioning themselves. First quarter will decide the game.

Yikes.

This may be by design. We do have 10 wins banked without burning energy applying manic pressure.

I think the fans probably need a win more than the club does. Would make for a much more comfortable bye week if we were back on the winner's list

If we lose I get 10 days to avoid pie fans. I think the pies play G better than us.

What a week! The players appear to be galvanising, so should we as supporters, I’m going to back them by turning up this Monday.

Let’s not forget who we are up against, it is our (or at the very least my) arch enemies.

Don’t care if we have injuries, suspensions or are loading- I want Collingwood but in particular their feral supporters and that little frosby flopping, free kick seeking piece of peroxided excrement, Ginnivan to suffer a humiliating defeat (whether it be by one point or 10 goals I don’t care), just so long as it cuts to the bone.

You can’t experience this type of pleasure by watching it on TV or Kayo, you got to be there!

GO DEES!!

Top post and thread in general.

If anyone wants anymore GEEing up for the game, watch the clip on the club's website of Daniel Turner being announced as playing on Monday, done at training this morning.

Priceless, including the effort by Jake Lever in the announcement, and especailly look around at the smiling faces of team mates.

Fascinating

That's always the problem playing Collingwood..would you prefer to win by 1 or 100. 1 is almost better.

My 7 and 9 year old boys had a punch on yesterday. 7 yo won. Gave them both a week. Mother wants to review it.

They are in their room playing nicely now. Bit like footy players.

Players should treat this game with Finals Intensity. They know the levels now. It’s not a dream. They powered away with the Flag last year. 
Losing S May is a major blow as is TMac. But others step in and we still have a dam good side 

But Monday is Finals pressure and then a week off

So, what's the true story? Did the 9 year old complain that the 7 year old let the side down playing marbles with the neighbour's kids or did he say he was sick of telling a third child how to position his tombola?

Read the title of this thread and thought, will we though, then watched the Daniel Turner video and thought, yes I think we will.

Yikes.

Interestingly we lead the league in tackles inside 50, have conceded the fewest amount of points (even with a full game more on a quarter of the league who had the bye last round) and along with Collingwood are one of the best intercept teams in the league.

We are one of the worst tackling and worst pressure act teams (pressure act being chasing a team from behind). It could well be the way we play in that we rarely need to chase. Teams out tackle us given we are near the top in contested possessions and disposals. We win and have more of the ball overall. We also go forward more than any other team.

It could explain why our games haven't looked "good" all year. They have almost always seemed like grinds and they really have been.

Suggesting Collingwood "should" win though is a stretch. Why?

Ginnivan is the perfect target.

Ok so we have landed on Ginnivan, Henry, and a Daicos preferably 2. 

Jack V. gets first crack, and gets a license to cop a 50 metre penalty and goal, or up to 2 weeks suspension if he can’t be subtle enough. 

Then Hibbo, Harmes, Pickett to finish off whoever is left.

Seeing as the AFL  has been kowtowed into stumbling into something they apparently can selectively choose to enter into I hope the Club will demand an opinion prior to Monday's Game as there is a definite question of double standards here..

If jack  v gets first crack as you say the others won't be required.

    BACK TO BASE CAMP by Meggs

    Congratulations to the Brisbane Lions.   Undefeated in all 6 matches against the top teams (North Melbourne, Adelaide, Geelong, and Melbourne). They are worthy winners of the 2023 AFLW premiership.   Our ambition for a Season 8 back-to-back premiership was derailed.   In round 6 Adelaide spilled the beans on the template to outplay us. From there news spread fast to other top teams who applied similar intense physical pressure at the source which crushed our gameplan to execute vi

    PODCAST: Jason Taylor Interview

    I'm interviewing the Melbourne Football Club Recruitment Manager Jason Taylor early next week on the Demonland Podcast. I'll be asking him about moving up the draft order, our new recruits (both Draftees and Trades), Daniel Curtin, our recent recruits who have yet to play a senior game, who he thinks will be the next Judd McVee and more. If you have any further questions let me know below and I'll see if I can squeeze them in. I will release the podcast either Monday or Tuesday.

    TOO LITTLE TOO LATE by Meggs

    It was a hot afternoon at IKON where the ferocious Cats came to play, had read the manual on how to beat us and the Demons were unable to match them for the first three quarters.     With physical pressure, they took the game on with relative ease and though our resistance seemed better than the previous two weeks it was still not good enough.     Within the opening minute, Kate Hore marks within range, but her shot was a miss-kick, like a fat iron, and it kinda set a flat tone f

    TURNAROUND by Meggs

    Following successive comprehensive defeats by fellow Top Four heavyweights the Demons play down a division this Sunday against the highly promising Cats.     Strangely, no games against the Cats for five seasons and now we play them twice in one season.     With the blueprint on how to defeat the Dees available on the dark web the real question is, will we crumble again under the finals pressure cooker or will we rediscover our #DemonSpirit and execute a turnaround?   Mak

    THE SECRET IS OUT by Meggs

    We were expecting that after last week’s comprehensive defeat by Brisbane, our coach Mick Stinear would have his charges coming out breathing finals fire. Instead, it was North who had the aggression, the numbers, who blocked our scoring avenues and rendered us impotent, unable to match the Kangas during any phase of the match.   Darren Crocker, the North coach, later highlighted that how to beat Melbourne is no secret following recent losses to Adelaide and Brisbane and now North.
