GAMEDAY: Rd 21 vs Collingwood



Recommended Posts

Unfortunately I’m working so can’t go, should be a big crowd though, Trac will be happy. 😜
 

Fair to say I’m nervous about this one, the Pies match up well against us and we tend to let one or two of their players have a day out against us. It’s a huge game for us, if we back up our Freo win with another good win here it’s going to hopefully launch our finals run and, fingers crossed, we do what we did last year. When it comes down to it, if we play near our best we will win, I just hope our players turn up. 🤞🏻🔴🔵

I'm slowly getting a little nervous, if it was any other team I'd be fully confident but the pies seem to always hand it to us.

I also reckon their supporters are going to drown us out... and I'm dreading the "Coooollinnngwoooood"...

Their quick ball movement can be overwhelming when they get on a roll, hopefully with our settled defence we can somewhat take that out of their game. I feel like the dockers didn't challenge at all with their ball movement playing into our hands whereas I think the pies will go into the game with a "nothing to lose" attitude and take the game on with risk.

Feeling the creep of nerves this morning... waiting for my flight to Melb to take off.  I'll spend all day working alongside a Pies supporter which will only exacerbate things!  

Hoping we can back up Lingers' words and show some proper Melbourne style footy!

We'll be up for this. No doubt about that

Bring the same  heat and intensity that we did against the Freo and the pies have no chance

Time to put these upstarts in their place

Dees by 25 points

On another note: does anyone have any clever tips for parking at the G? Normally, we train it in from Bala’ but want to make a quicker getaway tonight with the kids. Any ideas?

Surely the pies at $3.12 would have the be the longest odds of any team on a 10 game winning streak.

Park in a carpark on Flinders st. Tram or walk from there. That's the quickest way out. The car park is closed for 20 minutes after the game at the MCG. You'll be in your car and away before the MCG car park opens let alone get out of it

Methinks a quicker getaway would be to NOT park at the ‘G. Perhaps you could park at a train station (eg: North Melbourne) and from there it’s a relatively short train ride to the ground.

“Upstarts” -  Can’t  think of a more fitting description. Well I can, only every second word would be censored. 

We’ll get the job done tonight and we’ll revel in their misery. 🍻 

GO THE MIGHTY DEMONS!!!

I tend to park in a side street on the east side of Punt Road and north of Bridge Road. 20 minute walk to the ground. Plenty of alternative escape routes that avoid Punt Road traffic

Big day has arrived. I’m very confident today, probably more confident than I have been for any game this season. Think we will see big Max back to his pre injury form. 
Think our midfield will go to another level and we win by over 5 goals. 
Let’s smash these one trick ponies.

And hey, should we lose tonight (except we won’t), but if we do, let’s all NOT point the finger at Ed. To suggest that the outcome of a match can be even partly attributed to the pregame words of one player is foolish.

Our loss to them had 4 key talls out or injured.  Made Mr USA look like Mr Universe.  Not tonight, baby!  System system system. Lets show them what a premiership team looks like…

Hey Binnie .... are you confident? 

You are the person whose opinion* I respect the most. 

 

FWIW ... the day has started well for me. Got Wordle in 2/6!

It’s funny that on Sportsbet now we’re shorter fave to beat Collingwood, 3rd on the ladder ($1.36) than Carltank next week ($1.39). There’s a lot of money very confident in the Dees tonight.

Forthwith, Ed will now be referred to as either "Colourful Melbourne Identity, Mr. Ed Langdon", or "Outspoken former Dockers player Langdon". After winning this years Norm Smith, references will be made to "F^&*ing Deez Legend, Langers".

Mihocek is a big in for them, as he always plays well against us.

He hardly had a touch last time until Turner got injured and we lost Petty for a large slab of time late in the second quarter. He should get more attention tonight.

    EYES ON RED & BLUE by Wilma from West Perth

    It was a great weekend for the Red and the Blue on this side of the Nullarbor.   On Saturday, West Perth bested Claremont by two goals after leading all day with the exception of a few early minutes to take out the WAFL Premiership and on Sunday, Melbourne scored a five goal win over Fremantle with a stunning four goals to zip in the final term.   Again, it was the red and the blue leading nearly all day to record their fifth win from six games.   The ou

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES by The Oracle

    Part One - ZERO HOUR, 9AM The AFL Trade Period begins in earnest at 9.00am amid the announcement of a bombshell by North Melbourne’s 2021 Number 1 draft pick Jason Horne-Francis that he wants to leave the club and return to his home state to play for Port Adelaide.  The Herald Sun is reporting that “Horne-Francis will cite the instability at North Melbourne this year in his first season“ along with a likely continuation of chaos as a result of the uncertainty surrounding coach Alastair

    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
