Would rathered Harmes for Milkshake! Spargo extremely lucky

Think you should throw in Hunt and Hibberd 

can only think each had specific goals or run with roles to shut down specific players. Not sure that held with our pour conversion into scores or the ease the ball came out of our 50

still think this side should beat the blues

go dees do it Saturday just for me!

My initial response was FMD ……. but  I took a deep breath and reflected on last weekend.  It was perhaps the best game of footy for the season, huge stakes between two top teams, enormous pressure and some important breaks went against us.  We lost by only a few points, with lots of upside to the level we know that we can play at (eg. goal kicking and delivery to our forwards).  I’m okay with no changes in those circumstances.

Dees by 7 points after almost being run over in the last quarter. 

I'm predicting a similar outcome to the Freo match. Dees by 6 goals and change

Dees by 29 points after some wasteful kicking for goal. I am not a praying man but I am praying that we are seeking an extra goal kicking forward to play beside BB, Fritta and JVR next year.!!!!

What's the chances of a shock Weid comeback at Milkshake's expense ?

 

Surely Goodwin is not that foolish? In the eyes of so many supporters and members, he'd lose his job.

Maybe goody thought a sneaky late change of the Weid in is better than Thurs night, in case Sam reads Demonland?!

Putting aside the “one week at a time”…..

Obviously we need to win out last two games to finish 2nd. In addition we need the Swans to beat Collingwood this Sunday, the other factor is percentage. 
Sydney play Collingwood and the Saints, Saints are still a chance to play finals although it seems unlikely. I think we can beat Brisbane next week but it may not be as easy as it was after the bye. This Saturday night is our chance to put some space between our percentage and that of Sydney’s. Leigh Mathew’s said during the week he didn’t like discussing percentage with his players as he thought it detracted from the task at hand, I thought players were better than that. Break it down in it’s simplest form, aim to win each quarter by 4 goals. Cripps or no Cripps we have them covered. Time to start handing out some lessons again.

I didn't expect it to happen either 'mania. The point I was getting at ( and I stated it explicitly later) is that I don't like the idea of going into the finals with only one tall forward. Unfortunately, unless they were going to give the kid ( JVR) a go we have no options except Weid.

However, tonight's selection confirms that that is the way we are going

Wouldn't matter if he did read Demonland, '64, he's already had thousands of treatises, reports, theses, intense and widespread analysis including measured advice and fault correcting suggestions (ad nauseum) from the foundation of the football club - US!

Such extensive contributions to his onfield well-being have so far been wilfully ignored or 'placed into the too-hard basket'.

 It does not auger well, I am afraid; still, who are we to consider alternatives?

Let’s hope if Gawn is forward more that he fixes his goal kicking. 

Not much point in having him there to kick points. 

Gawn has a career goalkicking record of 86 goals 78 behinds and this season has kicked 11 goals 13 behinds.  After the Swans game he was on 11 goals 9 behinds.  By comparison Petracca has kicked 16 goals 27 behinds.  Gawn's last couple of games have had some average shots, but over the season he's not far off 50/50.  If Tracc had been anywhere near that we win at least two more games, and top 2 is locked away.

    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.
