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…

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 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…

Exactly, don't give the big dogs any reason to think this could be possible. Fill the G.

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!

    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.

    DAISY DOES IT by Whispering Jack

    The Gold Coast has been treated to a feast of womens football over the past couple of days. On Friday night, the Brisbane Lions claimed flag favouritism when they knocked the Adelaide Crows off their second placed perch at Metricon Stadium. Then on Saturday evening at the same venue, the Melbourne Demons consolidated their hold on that vacated second spot when, they ruthlessly smashed a finals contender in consecutive weeks, this time the home town favourites, the Suns.    It was a case
