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.

    CHANGES 2022 Part Three by The Oracle

    Part Three - Comparing apples with pomegranates by The Oracle One of the truly pointless exercises after each year’s draft is the game over which club “won” the period in question. The reality is that there is no winner or loser at the time and it’s only years further down the track when a full assessment of how the picks turn out can be made, that the winning hand is revealed. And the draft results cannot be considered in isolation; you need to look at where each club stood before the

    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
