Where so far off our best footy it’s not funny just need to hope we get over the line somehow. It really is hard to believe where reigning premiers and second on the ladder at the moment. 

Yup, said in a group chat, we have 5 games coming up and can easily lose them all. We haven’t been great all year, we have had great qtrs etc and got wins, but overall been good, but not great and if we play like we have been, including today, we are making up numbers.

BB is playing well. It’s not his fault we don’t have a player in the team who can hit him on the goddamn chest when he’s leading at the ball…

Fritta i would drop you if Tmac wasn't injured burnt another player in the goalsquare.

He is doing some selfish things of late.

I think his last two errors (pulling the kick from a set shot and playing on to handball to a teammate under pressure) was him trying to make amends for that early burn.

Just needs to play smart..

This is the truth. Talk loading, injuries and other stuff all we want but we qre simply not playing well enough right now.

Yes BBB was on the move clear of Aliir and Salem kicked it short i50 to Aliir's advantage 🤷

BBB getting marks in the wing and CHF. Need him inside 50 kicking goals. It’s our lack of Tmcd or a CHF that’s a killer !!

Weid or JVR would have been a better selection than Bedford.

It’s a shame cause his skills are sublime.

He’ll come into the game in the second half…. *casually crosses fingers*

We are butchering the ball, and I think the harder ground is making then ball bounce with higher variation because of it. So many fumbles from both clubs, from players who usually have clean hands. I don't understand the poor kicking though. So many unpressured kicks missing targets by a long way.

Our forward pressure is back on which is good, and our forward system is at last showing early signs of organisation, but it would be good to have someone actually taking a contested mark for a shot on goal. 

Sparrow has such a huge upside, but he is quickly becoming a momentum killer. Some of his decision making is outright poor. 

I thought Harmes, Trac, Langdon & Kozzie lifted well that quarter.

He’s also playing a heap of time in in the middle of the ground

edit: by middle I mean wings not on the ball

Liked Tomlinson today. Playing well.

Kozzie's been electri

Sparrow and Rivers working hard.

BBB doing some good things.

Dislike Petracca playing like a millionaire.

Mindless bombs into forwardline.

Maybe @bing181 can explain? You're big advocate for his selection. 

I never advocated for his selection, nor for any player for that matter. I tried to understand the reasoning behind his call-up, from those who are paid to make those decisions.

Don’t know how you play well when you have a certain amount of injuries and are loading. Form isn’t a magical thing. It is often explainable.

    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.
