GAMEDAY: Rd 22 vs Carlton



Recommended Posts

I have no idea who will win tonight.  At our best we can smash any team in the comp, but as we've seen too often there seems to be an inability to finish games off, where half the team goes missing for a half of football.  I can only hope that something has clicked during the week and there truly is a hunger to win.  If we're up by 30 points and Carlton come back and win I'll be guttered.

Maybe we should let the Blues get out to a 4 goal lead at halftime then run them down as was happening to them earlier in the year. Psychologically it's easier to get on a roll chasing a lead than defending one 😜

Will definitely be another tough match, hope the boys don’t go to sleep in the 2nd half AGAIN, as Carlton finished full of running last week

I wouldn’t read too much into Carlton getting close to the Lions in the last quarter sisso. Brisbane well and truly packed up shop by then, too busy thinking about their 5 day break heading into the Saints game.

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.

Hard to get excited about the game.The team is firing on four cylinders out of 6 at best.

If we win tonight which we should it all  comes down to a 50/50 Brisbane game.

The Pies loss last week with our dominance inside 50 shows we are simply not clicking

Hoping our ball getters have more of an impact. I want lots of goal assist and smart plays.

Our handballs have to be to players with more freedom. 

Score well, when if we are dominating, otherwise we give them a sniff.

I want us to hit the scoreboard hard in the third and to keep the momentum going into the last quarter. 

Would love to see some stab passes into the forward 50.

Can't let Carlton out mark us, the talls need to be there at each aerial contest.

Pressure, pressure and take it on when it is our time.

Need us to play as a team, do the roles, the one percenters and some magic.

Time for our best.

Go Dees.

Blues odds are way too juicy

 

gut instinct this will be closer than many think 

Odds on Cripps first goal or Cripps pass to a forward for first goal?

Time is now dees, Blues missing all their midfield depth. 

Foot on the throat and remind the competition we're still a force in 2022 

 

They have their best 3 in Cripps, Walsh and Cerra. Our midfield depth is nothing to write home about anyway.

The Dees will heading into the finals winning these last two games easily as their goal kicking clicks into 'finals' gear. We are playing ourselves into impressive form in the middle. Brisbane was lucky to win last night. A sad display of King's goal kicking yips a reminder to us the importance of a healthy mindset.

But we know how these "no champs" seem to turn it on against us.

JUH kicks 5 straight against us, then kicks 4 points in his next game.

Johnson gets 4 straight against us, 3rd or 4th game.

Reid and McDonald 3 each and Reid BOG.

Been going on for years, where players start their careers, or have their best game against us. A classic example was Warren Ralph for Carlton. He played 21 games for them and 2 against us, scoring 8 goals in the first and 4 in the next. You could find loads of examples if you searched through the records.We seem to be that team where a player can have a day out against us.

Two teams who have shown real weakness in the 2nd half. The last quarter of the game will be either a fierce battle or a skills-and-intensity fade out. Our best is far better than theirs, but they are good enough if we don't bring our best. 

I hate Carlton but I honestly don't know who will win.

The problem is we’ve folded so many times this season now that all the other sides are going to believe they can win if they keep on coming…..no way I think tonight is going to be a walkover

I’m tipping an annihilation tonight. Last year wasn’t a fluke, all things considered we’ve been playing some good footy the last 4-5 weeks even though we’ve had the three losses. We know what’s at stake, whilst the 4 points is the priority we will be fully aware of how much % will decide the top 4.

Just win boys!

What crowd numbers are we expecting today? 50k or 70k ? 

It's our last H&A game at the G this year. Looks like it'll be perfect weather. No excuses for Dees fans not to show up to this one. With Carlton pushing for finals I expect it to be at least 70k, hopefully nudge 80k

Message to the players:  You may be aware that you did untold damage to the good humour and well-being of all of us Demonlanders last weekend.  Please understand that there is a huge onus of responsibility on you to make it up to us this evening.  We are mostly forgiving people.  You know what’s required ……….. just get it done!  Thanks

We couldn’t drop this, surely? Anyway, I’m into my last few days in Bali. I have given up on Seminyak. Too many Bintang singlet wearing Aussies. And no-one recognised my MFC cap! I’ll be watching in Sanur. Go Demons!!

    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.
