In: Bowey, Lever

Out: Salem, Tomlinson

Chandler the sub

Salem has been a liability since he's come back from injury maybe a game in the 2's won't do him any harm.

Last chance to win the flag here. If we can't beat Freo then we can kiss the flag goodbye will struggle to make the top 4. MUST win game.

Apart from Lever and Brown in (goody didn't seem overly confident on Brown) I'm not sure what we do here.

Think we need two tall forwards but wouldn't surprise to see Weideman out despite kicking 3 if Brown is good to go.

Would like to see Hunt back in the team.

Changes are becoming less relevant, we need to get back to doing what we do.

Lever in, Tommo out. 

After seeing Chandler today I'd love to see him get a shot but not going to put any bets on it.

I accept Salem wont happen but it should, he is the shadow of last years version. More likely Jordon is managed, Gus to wing and Bowey in if a third change,

Salem is playing without confidence and therefore most his kicks are high long bombs, this is becoming habitual and now even his passed have to much air.

Jackson has been playing a bit part role for weeks, but that is what a kid his age should be doing.

We are still losing the clearances, which again cost us.

Lever back in is a no brainer, will strengthen backline immensely and help the rebound game (offendence). Our system rely's on two tall forwards (not including a resting ruckman),  Fritsch and pressure.  Melskam doesn't fit this model so BBB for him, I'd also be tempted to swing Petty forward for Weids, with Tomilson to hold his spot or maybe Turner.

Bowey for Salem is also close.

Id like to reward Chandler too but who would he come in for? I feel it's Pickett, ANB or Spargo he is competing with:

Pickett kicked 6 last week and 2 last night. He is inconsistent but he has absolute star quality and is so dangerous, he threatens to take every game apart. I can't see him being dropped.

ANB plays a high coverage, high pressure, link up half forward role. I don't know if Chandler has that sort of endurance or aerobic capacity?

Spargo feels to me like he has been down on form, but I'm not sure if that is just because he is averaging less goals per game? He is actually up on score involvements, goal assists, inside 50s, disposals and marks than previous seasons. I think he is playing higher up the ground than before which is continuing to less goals. That isn't where Chandler will play.

Melksham is most likely as he is the last in the team and didn't provide the obvious defensive efforts last night that he did last week. But he had 9 score involvements from 9 disposals, including kicking 2.1 and a goal assist. That isn't a bad return for a fringe player taking his chances.

Capital idea, old spice!

Indeed! Let's drop our 5 time All Australian, 2 time best and fairest, premiership winning captain returning from an injury requiring a one month recovery after he was beaten by the opposition ruck despite playing a good game himself by most metrics.

Maxy suiting up for Casey for a hit out on a cold and sh***y day in suburbia surely won't cause any resentment with him or basically the entire club, will it? 🙄

They both won and both lost, I see giggling gerty liked your post.

Because its funny trying to watch you weasel your way through this thread making absolute zero sense as always. You made yourself look very silly with my sarcasm comment and tried to dig your way out. 

"They both won and both lost" when trying to justify a draw.. enough said.

Haven’t had the pleasure of seeing the full game but where I’d be thinking for changes:

1. Chandler had a ripper in the VFL whilst in the seniors we laid 0 tackles inside 50. 
 

2. Lever returns if fit. 
 

3. From Goodwin’s presser I’m not confident Brown will be ready next week. 
 

4. This will be our second consecutive 6-day break and long flight between games. We got overrun this week. Anyone who isn’t fully fit shouldn’t be playing. So if Jordon has a knee concern, don’t risk him, and bring back Hunt or Bowey and move Gus to the wing.

Don’t reckon we can keep carrying Spargo each week. Doesn’t score and now his pressure and tackling has dropped off. 

maybe he needs to freshen up at Casey

Time to throw the switch. In the absence of TMac, our lack of big man contesting/marking inside fwd 50 is hurting us big time. Neither Weid (who admittedly made the most of his opportunities last night) or BBB (on one leg) are able to go toe-to-toe with big defenders in marking contests to at least give a contest and bring ball to ground - or even mark a few. Gawn can't be there all the time and Jackson in down on form or fitness. With Tomlinson back in the side and pretty solid, and Lever likely to return, its time to throw Petty forward to add some overhead capacity, and a bit of mongrel - remembering he went forward early in his career (against Dogs ironically) with some success. Chandler is banging down the door often this year, and although a different player to the largely defensive Spargo, deserves a crack at his spot to add some goal kicking and overhead ability (for his size). While Harmes had an ordinary one last night, he has been very good at times this year, and often adds some midfield bite when the usuals aren't getting it done. Melksham stays in for me - conceding he doesn't get a lot of it, his intelligent, skillful kicking adds some much needed composure to the fwd line, and he can usually be accountable for a defender. Would like to get Hunt back in for some dash but realistically a bit hard to see who makes way. If Jordan is managed (as suggested elsewhere) that might be the in - remembering he can play forward or back so gives good coverage also, I would make that change. We really need a bit more run and carry out of defence at the moment to unsettle the opposition - Langers is being sat on lately and can't be expected to do all that every week.

    BLUE VIBE AT IKON by Meggs

    It was such a nice vibe at Ikon on Friday night.     Princes Park looked in excellent condition, a relaxed but modest crowd and President Kate Roffey and CEO Gary Pert in attendance, greeting fans and shaking hands.     It was an evening with little to complain about for Dees supporters, save for some drizzling rain, a few missed scoring opportunities and the fact that the Dees as raging favourites duly took the four points.   Carlton was always going to struggle to cover

    BLUES AWAY by Meggs

    This Round 5 clash against the Blues at Princes Park (officially known as Ikon Park) is a great chance for the Dees to bounce back to the winning circle following our top-of-the-table loss to Brisbane last week.     Carlton will be missing several key players with the pundits calling 10 to nil.  Raging favouritism is never a comfortable thing for Melbourne supporters but we simply must deliver on Friday night.   History has seen these teams play four times since 2017 with the Dee

    LIONS POUNCE by Meggs

    Early Sunday afternoon Meggs was coffeeing in Mornington and witnessing hail, thunder, lightning, rain, wind and feeling the freezing temperatures and knowing all these elements were heading towards Casey Fields.  Oh dear.  The Brisbane coach had said during the week that he wanted the game moved to Marvel because “if you're going to have two of the better teams in the comp playing, (it warrants) a venue and deck that suits the occasion”.  However, Casey Fields was uncharacteristi

    RAINING PREMIERS by KC from Casey

    If the threatening dark grey skies that loomed above Ikon Park before the VFL Grand Final didn’t provide a sufficiently inhospitable reception for our visitors from sunny Queensland, the rains that bucketed down after quarter time certainly did. For years, the Casey Demons have welcomed opposing teams at their home fortress with rain, hail, wind and frosty conditions and it was just Southport’s luck that they met those conditions head on in the VFL’s big dance. They suited Casey’s skillful

    PRIDE OF VICTORIA by KC from Casey

    When Casey Demons coach Mark Corrigan talks about his charges putting their “best foot forward” on Sunday when they take on the Southport Sharks in the 2022 VFL Grand Final, it’s a signal that his team is on a mission not only for themselves but in  the name of their forebears, the Springvale Scorpions, and indeed for the pride and honour of the entire State of Victoria. The VFL club now known as the Casey Demons last won a premiership flag under the name of the Springvale Scorpions but tha

    NARRM AT HOME by Meggs

    For the fourth consecutive week, and the second week as the mighty Narrm, we take on a Top 8 team. Could this match be a preview of the Season 7 Grand Final?   Our opponents this week, Brisbane, stand undefeated atop the AFLW ladder after slaying the struggling Freo, and the unrated Giants and Gold Coast.  After amassing 225 points for and only 56 against, for a percentage of 401.8%, the pundits are claiming the Lions have the best attack the competition has ever seen.   Brisbane

    CHANGES 2022 by The Oracle

    Part 1: The year we stood still (or did we?).  Premiership coach David Parkin who  coincidentally turned 80 yesterday, famously used to say that even a premiership team needs to bring at least five new players into the fold in order to advance from year to year and therefore, if this adage remains true, then the Melbourne Football Club really did stand still in 2022.  Of the players recruited after the club’s premiership in September, 2021, only Luke Dunstan (5 games) managed to provid

    NARRM BLITZES EARLY by Meggs

    The last time we played the Saints, Pride Round 3 January 2022, it was an arm wrestle for 3 quarters and a Demons highlights package for 1 quarter. Oddly familiar was our outing to Moorabbin on Sunday, except this week we are Narrm and it’s Indigenous Round.   Our highlights package was contained to a first quarter onslaught. Superior work at stoppages and our mids dominant.  We showcased our run and carry and our dynamic forward line.  With Hore, Zanker twice, Bannan, Fitzsimon and Paxy al

    THE CASEY SHOW by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons will play in the VFL Grand Final at Ikon Park next Sunday after overturning their final round loss to the Brisbane Lions Reserves and dominating the Preliminary Final to emerge victorious by 51 points.  And while the distance in standards between the AFL and VFL at finals time is admittedly a wide one and the opposition and conditions different, there were a few Demons on display who excelled to the point where one was left to ask whether they could have made the difference
