POSTGAME: Rd 17 vs Geelong



Recommended Posts

They played with a lot more intensity and hardly let up.

Both had 5 day breaks:

They had a training run at home last game and we had a tough away game (even if Adelaide are a bottom side).

Just saying. Be interesting to watch them play on a normal size oval, but i cant be bothered watching them. 

Missing another quality tall marking option. Although BB was encouaging in the first half.

But we just finished loading 2 weeks ago didn’t we? When do we not load and actually play? I’m not buying the loading stuff this time as it’s a bit too early for the final loading before finals. Im starting to question the hunger a bit, they just lack dare and the ruthless edge we all saw last year . 
 

The game plan is doing my head in. Slow down the wing has been worked out. Can we switch or use the corridor once in a while to surprise the opposition? Bowey and Salem are not the kicks we all have talked them up to be. Haven’t played a standout game for a while. 

Seriously Salem at 96% in grand final should tell you something 🤦🏻‍♂️

Our lack of run and legs has been very concerning.

Geelong to good tonight unfortunately. Incredibly frustrating game to watch so many players getting caught with the ball, the bounce of the ball also just seemed to follow Cats players, skill errors and we looked like slipping over all night. Max and LJ just not being able to take those pressure reliving marks hurt. So many players were way below par tonight and that seems to be the case more often than not lately.

Hate losing to those stinking tu.rds

But it’s July. We had a flat spot last year and came good in round 19. 
 

Don’t show your hand early. 
 

We can obliterate them when it counts 

Need to do something about our forward line first I’m afraid

Our comparatively harder game last week might have been a factor but doesn't explain being belted in clearances in the first half.

Smashed in the clearances. maybe better with Weid and Mitch rucking. Gawn and Jackson more or less useless. 

Max and Jack had to come back some time - would it be better next week?  Who Knows?

Interesting Selwood said they feel like they were running on top of the ground. Sounds like they’ve timed their loading well. Better than us, anyway…

Maybe ....  like premature ejaculation?

Salem needs a spell. Has looked terrible since his return and tonight was his worst yet. His kicking lacks penetration and precision. Work on it at Casey.

So, needs a spell, or time at Casey?  Which do you mean?

10 minutes ago, Billy said:

Selwood a dirty little sniper, probably broken Clarrys thumb

18 games down there in 22 years

And we played poorly 

.... and how many for Collingwood, Carlton, Essendon, Richmond?  Just one more example of the utter corruption of the AFL.

2 minutes ago, John Crow Batty said:

Gawn and Jackson, one mark between them as well….ugh. Maybe both rushed back too early? 

So would you prefer Weed and Mitch?   Nobody could reasonably predict that they would be that flay.

I'm not a believer at all. Think its just excuses. Other clubs load too, including the side that just belted us (yes should've been more).

Forward craft whether it be skills or tactics or decision making needs a lot of work, whenever we're struggling it's always a part of the problem. we would have to be one of the lowest percentage scoring from the amount of entries we create.

Small forwards creating pressure is good but how about getting the ball more and have the opposition chasing you instead of the other way round

Max Holmes looks a ripper. Jason Taylor was bang on identifying him as a gun outside talent. Shame he went a pick too early for us. 

We need to look at some changes to our smalls next week. That game was lost by our small forward not getting involved, and lack of smaller lockdown defenders.

Whilst I'm not suggesting we shouldn't be looking at changes to the small forwards, we didn't make their lives easy by losing at stoppages (so we couldn't hold the ball forward) and not having a tall other than Brown forward of centre to take marks or make a sufficient aerial contest to bring the smalls into the game.

Would be hard to be a small forward when we play like that further up the ground.

In saying that, I'm really not convinced by Bedford whilst Spargo's game was infuriating.

All this rubbish l have been hearing from media and others that we are juggernaut etc. l never believed it. Yes a good team in the mix this year but that’s all in the mix.  Rubbish is and then daylight second like dunstall says     A chance for top 4.

We looked rough up until round 19 last year. Very similar form, problems etc.

Yes l am swinging a boot in mid air when a player’s about grab the ball

I think that’s against the rules don’t you?

I’d need to see the footage again, but I’m sure he was behind Oliver and his vision of Oliver’s hand would have been obscured when he tried to get his boot to the ball.

A few poor performances, won’t be the last time we lose in Geelong. 
 

Big lift needed for the remainder of the season for top 4,  but as we saw last year, not over until the final kick .

What could've been?....

The Kozzy miss.....

The Fritsch dribble with Langdon free.....

The Bedford fumble when he was off and away.....

The umpires not calling below the knees against Rohan on Jackson which nearly broke his leg....

The JJ holding the ball.....

That was by far our worst performance for the year. It was 4 quarters of constant mistakes. I don't think Geelong were that good. Play like that next week  and it will be another loss. We have not beaten port in Alice so my MFCSS is running riot for next week already.

Their pressure was excellent and we didn’t have a plan to counter.

I do hope the club seeks clarification on the non free kick to May in the 3rd Qtr when Hawkins tackled him without looking at the ball, preventing Nay from competing for the ball. From the ensuing bounce, Hawkins kicks a goal. Total [censored].

Outplayed all night. No excuses. So many players made little to no contribution.

It's all very well applying forward pressure, but Kossie, Spargo, Bedford and ANB need to get their hands on the ball.

    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.
