GAMEDAY: Rd 22 vs Carlton



Recommended Posts

Carlton fans are boasting that their team will make a statement tonight by upsetting the reigning premiers to cement their return to finals football.

That’s right folks. According to them, we’re chopped liver!

Time to prove that the Demons are still premiership contenders!

We usually get up for big games. Think the games against Brisbane after the bye and after the dogs game against Freo.

We play well when we’re under pressure. But from now on it needs to be fullthrottle every game.

Low 50’s IMO

The blues usually get home crowds in the 40-50s even against interstate so it seems low especially when you consider the importance of the game for both teams.

One should expect a decent crowd but who knows

It has to start now.


👉🏽Do not entertain a shoot out
                                                                     👉🏽Match Viney’s intensity

👉🏽Shut down Curnow and McKay

👉🏽 Kick straight / give off to someone in better position 

👉🏽Tackles / defensive pressure inside our 50

If we can do this, we’ll win by 8 goals. 
 

Go Dees🔴🔵

Not really, the dogs game was after a win against port and the pies after a really good game against freo, hardly backs to the wall like the other two.

I’m saying in games where we absolutely needed the wins, we got the job done.

If we aspire the Holy Grail in 2022, we should easily account for Carlton tonight, and I think we will.  A margin of 7 or 8 goals will give us a handy percentage boost, so just get it done Dees.

Can't remember which season it was, but about 7 so years ago, Carlton won only 4 games for the season. 2 of their wins were against Melbourne, who weren't far off making the finals.

MFCSS has set in, particularly in view of the fiasco regarding Cripps which Carlton will see as a victory.

Demons were short priced favourites v filth (first time round), Freo (first time round),, Swans, . None of these matches ended well.

A rock solid team defensive game will get us over the line by about six goals I reckon

Expect the back six to be ruthless tonight

Different team they're coming up against now though... If Melb are serious about making it to the end we are winning this. Last two weeks are proof of that, have played pretty good footy

I remember 2006 where they were absolute pox. They only won like 3 games? Two of those win came against us and pretty much cost us a top 4 chance. 

Had we even won one of those games we would have gotten the double chance.

In 2021 we stepped up sure, but this year we’ve folded at the sight of pressure and lost 6 games against top 8 sides. I’d consider games against our main competition as big games, like the two against the Pies in front of huge crowds at the MCG as a prime example. 

I’m still hopeful we can get going and hit out straps again in finals, but evidence says 2022 demons don’t handle pressure well.

    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.
