Adams is a decent big bodied mid that they really could have used tonight. I'm hoping to be pretty physical at the coalface and exploit this. 

Bit of a misnomer this - they will play De Goey in the guts to compensate. He's extremely dynamic in there and has torched us before (one particular game I remember he had it on an absolute string)

I'm taking my tin  of Brasso to the game tonight with a clean rag.

Win, lose or draw I'm passing to Ed as he walks of the ground so he can go home tonight and give his Premeirship Medal a quick polish.

You mean they're not 22 Carat gold.

Go away...next you'll be telling us there's no Santa Claus !!!

I certainly hope that we have very good umpires tonight that are not overly influenced by the the feral army.

Not wanting to buy into the mental health issues discussed above (at least not in this post), I also hope the umpires don’t soften up on their interpretation of the head ducking rule because of after match comments from last week.

If you get caught high going for the ball - free kick. If you look like your objective is to get a free, rather than the footy  - play on. Pretty simple!

We’ll see what happens tonight

I don't think it is apples for apples personally. De Goey doesn't have the tank of Adams, not currently anyway. 

You're right though, he's lit us up the last few times and could make up for the loss of Adams if he has one of those days again.

To quote a headline from the back page of the Herald Sun (circa early 1960s) that has stuck with me over the years: "Today's Magpies are Tomorrow's Feather Dusters".

That is magnificent! 

Can you still buy newspaper clippings for yesteryear?

I have been super jittery all day today. Can't wait for the game tonight. I want this win so badly! 

Dees 92 - Pies 54

Ditto. At the risk of sounding ‘Collingwoodish’ I find it incredibly difficult to articulate how I really feel about my disdain of Collingwood and all that it stands for by not being allowed to use a full array of expletives in these posts!

‘I just want us to crush these bar:[email protected]’s’ just doesn’t cut it.

They are just the yuckiest team.

As has been discussed, the pies go fast and push up hard.

They will find that method harder to implement againat us than almost any other team, particularly their and aggressive fast ball movement because we are so good at forcing and punishing turnovers.

But if they do get forward, we are also better placed than any other team to get over or through their high press and scoring on transition from our defence.

Think of our very first goal last week.

The ball was trapped almost on freo's goal line and their half forwards and mids were pressed up high, the way the pies like to do.

Once we won the ball we were able to get through ther press and out into space.

Handball from trac to viney, back to tracc and a 60 metre kick to kozzie running back towards goal, having  started up around the half back flank.

His opponent couldn't go with kozzie.

Tracc could have chosen other options as all our forwards had pushed up and were streaming forward.

Took all of 30 seconds, and only for possessions  to go from one end of the ground to the other.

Bang, bang, bang.

    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

    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.
