Forget Grundy.

Do whatever it takes to buy a genuine key forward.

Our forward line is a mess.

I can’t stand our coaching anymore. Even if we win this, bombing long to small forwards like Spargo, with McGovern on him is bloody madness. Kick it low or wide to space. 

We don’t adapt to our selected side at all.

Our handball turnovers must be a world record.

Our disposal is garbage.

We are not a shadow of last year’s side the way we are playing.

Has Petracca had a touch?

Melksham and May good.

Jackson better.

Saad doing damage setting up.

Carlton ultra defensive, flooding back.

 

Tracc done little but Oliver has done everything and is everywhere.

Jacko has taken a couple of marks and missed both shots but has handballed to them at least 4 times.

[censored] we miss TMac. 

We are too easy to defended against without another key forward, out numbered always at marking contests inside F50.

Anyone know if Saad or Weitering are injured? Or will they play the game out?

Weitering looked to hurt Ribs in Q1

Saad definitely looks sore - maybe ribs or something.

Why was that “a gift” for fritta, he marked it anyway… 

much happier about this game than the Collingwood and dogs games, blues without their stars are clearly playing as many tagging/negating roles as possible. 

They won’t be able to keep it up the whole game. I think we will break away and win by 40+ keeping the blues to under 50 points 

Disagree, the way our forward line is playing & our kicking for goal Carlton will be in this to the end

They have 2 class forwards that can win the game off their own boot, we have Ben Brown😂

Saad looked very sore after a contest or two after he came back on. Probing around his tummy and side. Not sure re Weitering.

The big thing to watch is our 2nd half. Do we sit in an 8 point lead? 
 

Any other top4 team would be smashing the Blues by 10 goals right now. 

The blues are applying some strong pressure. They are a good side.

Will they Fold?

I so hope so.

Unimaginative footy!!! Same ole, same ole. 
 

It’s like the term “the definition of insanity is doing the same thing and expecting a different  result”. Our win/loss in the last 10 weeks is less than 50%. Oppositions are working us out.

I get the game style is not completely broken, but make the opposition question or think we may change things up on occasion. Switch the ball…… stop running forward up the line and get some  spread. The midfield all run one way together forward…. We  do not have a crash and bash strong tall forward.

We have Melksham (playing well), Fritta and Brown who can lead if we only, on occasion spread it wide, and let them lead and mark. It’s better than relying on rucks marking and kicking behinds.

    MEANWHILE by Whispering Jack

    … meanwhile, at about the same time that Narrm was putting its feet on the accelerator to obliterate the long-suffering Euro-Yroke combination, I heard someone mention in passing that Kuwarna was leading Waalitj Marawar by a whopping 46 to 1 halfway through the second quarter of their game over in Adelaide. “What is football coming to?” I asked myself.  In front of my eyes, the Demons were smashing it through the midfield, forcing turnovers and getting the footy to their forwards who w

    It's Game Day and after 2 losses on the trot the Dees must win against the Saints today at the MCG to keep in touch with the Top 4. A loss today will see them drop out of the Top 8 for the first time since 2020.

    HEAVEN OR HELL by The Oracle

    Clashes between Melbourne and St Kilda are often described as battles between the forces of heaven and hell. However, based on recent performances, it’s hard to get excited about the forthcoming match between these two sides. It would be fair to say that, at the moment, both of these teams are in the doldrums. The Demons have become the competition’s slow starters while the Saints are not only slow to begin, they’re not doing much of a job finishing off their games either. About the only th

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form
