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🔴🔵

Last week and Dogs games were pretty big:

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.

2016 and not to mention 2 losses against them in 2006 , which cost us top 4

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.

    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

    NARRM BLITZES EARLY by Meggs

    The last time we played the Saints, Pride Round 3 January 2022, it was an arm wrestle for 3 quarters and a Demons highlights package for 1 quarter. Oddly familiar was our outing to Moorabbin on Sunday, except this week we are Narrm and it’s Indigenous Round.   Our highlights package was contained to a first quarter onslaught. Superior work at stoppages and our mids dominant.  We showcased our run and carry and our dynamic forward line.  With Hore, Zanker twice, Bannan, Fitzsimon and Paxy al

    THE CASEY SHOW by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons will play in the VFL Grand Final at Ikon Park next Sunday after overturning their final round loss to the Brisbane Lions Reserves and dominating the Preliminary Final to emerge victorious by 51 points.  And while the distance in standards between the AFL and VFL at finals time is admittedly a wide one and the opposition and conditions different, there were a few Demons on display who excelled to the point where one was left to ask whether they could have made the difference
