I'm looking for a championship team to follow at the moment so i can get my love for the game back

I miss the old Zola/Poyet days

*sorry all, I'll stop the round ball comments

Fine with me DubDee. It might be all we have for the next few months after tomorrow night. Although Green Bay can help fill that void for me until the end of January. 

I flirted with a few of the London sides when I lived there and have been to games at most of the grounds. I had a soft spot for Fulham, West Ham and Charlton at various times but settled on Brentford as Griffin Park was the closest ground to where I lived in Kew. 

 

You could always go a bit left field and pick a non-league side to follow?

Fondly remember that side. Viali, Flo, Wise.

If we were like current Chelsea Klopp would have been sacked this morning.

Sooo, is it a bit pathetic they have to tell us to cheer?

‘Grumble play good footy grumble win a contest grumble kick the bloody footy grumble grumble fart’.

I get all that but we have a future Demon God in Clayton Oliver playing for us, 2 AFL All Timers in Gawn and CP5, two Demon Knights-of-the-realm in Viney and Brayshaw, three generational backmen in The Demon Trident of Lever, May, and Petty. We also have the Demon Firestarter in Kozzie Pickett.

You aren’t excited enough to cheer already? It’s like a team of the best few players from the last 4 generations rolled into one team.

Just get up and cheer like a bogan for September. No one will know it was you, you can wear a fake moustache if you want…

Come to the mighty Bolton Wanderers!

Queens Park Rangers. Have followed them since 1974 when I first lived in London for seven years. Been up and down but just loved standing behind the goals and getting involved with the crowd. Been to all the big grounds up and down the country but felt at home at Loftus Road.  Go Hoops.

Family is from Bolton, watched us play Man U there one day, also been to Upton park as the wife’s family is all from there and Hammers fans.

Nice one! Got a few friends from Lancashire. Would be good to get over there again.

Anyone need motivation to attend the game?

Imagine next year we are playing Geelong away in a final. We have a recent history of only getting 45K to a final.

Suddenly we find ourselves playing a final at Kardinia Park!

GET TO THE GAME!

When?  Last year when the qualifying final was at half capacity at Adelaide Oval due to COVID?  What were we supposed to have done about that?  We were in Melbourne. In lockdown. Under curfew.

We’ll said

We we’re in the MCC, when we kicked the first three goals of the 3rd, my wife and a couple of others started a chant, everyone just looked at us like we were idiots.

We are the reigning premiers, have some fantastic players, but overall we are a really uninspired supporter base

I’m ready for the usual vitriol coming my way and probably the spell checkers

No surprise. A large chunk of our supporters won't even stand up when attending the cricket during a Mexican wave

Yes, but @Demonstonejust wants to help you.

Vitriol away!

 

Good vibe though Billy! Just explain to the members that the extra noise make the footballers play better…

For some, me for example, that’s the only way they cheer. And not just in September. 😁

MCC members or Melbourne supporters?  Because MCC members do not represent even a fraction of Melbourne supporters

Well they do make up a fraction. And that’s not just a maths jibe, the MCC is sometimes 3 qtrs of the Dees fans at a game during the year.

Can't say I agree with you on that.  I'd say the bulk of Melbourne supporters are either in the Olympic Stand or Punt Road goal end of the Southern Stand.  Yes, the MCC is usually chockas on Melbourne home games, but I'd say it's an overreach to say 3/4 of Melbourne supporters are in the MCC.  You weren't at the Carlton game in Rd 22, were you?  Southern Stand was literally bouncing after Kozzy's goal.

Thanks Kat. 💕 From a bogan of old. And damn proud of it (even if my hipster sons aren’t). 😁

Take it easy, btw. Burning the candle at both ends never works out for the best. 😘

Yeh, well, as it turned out the Sunrise cross was cancelled this morning for obvious reasons, I found that out at about 4 am when I woke up to get to the G.  But thanks for the chat last night 💕

Anytime. But we’d better quit before we’re told to get a room. 😁

On the Sunrise live crosses, I’m hoping like hell you have to do them next week since if you’re not, it means we’re no longer in it. So set that flippin’ alarm for 4am next Friday!!! Stat!

    PICKET FENCE'S TRAINING REPORT REHAB  Clarry, Max, Farris-White, Melky, Matt Jefferson, Jakey Lever, Joel Smith & 1 Other I couldn't place. Glad to see the Club being ultra cautious with Clarry's thumb BUT the fact he is still troubled with it is worrying (God I hate Selwood) Got there at 10.50 to see Full match Simulation Game between the Blues and the Whites. Quite clearly the Blues were the A Team and the Whites were the possibles. Some interesting faces in the white Team h

    TOUGH KENT'S TRAINING REPORT I journeyed out to Casey today and was fortunate enough to watch two quarters of match simulation. Here is a brief rundown of random occurrences/thoughts. First of all, there was no Jake Lever (ankle) or Joel Smith involved. AMW is still in rehab and was running strongly. It was Blue (Probables) v Red (Possibles) JvR was in blue. Ben Brown, T-Mac, Hibbo and Tom Sparrow were in red. Gus Brayshaw started at half back for blue and stayed there all game.

    DEE ZEPHYR'S TRAINING REPORT Morning all. First time at Goschs for a while, there’s a scoreboard set up which I’ve never seen here before. Possible match sim? Williams yelling out to players to get their hands off hips during drills. Gus looks fine to me. Absolutely., first two mins of match sim and his kicking is exquisite on both sides. He’s moving incredibly well.  Some observations from a match sim drill that lasted about 15-20 mins. The purpose se
