Recommended Posts


We kicked a goal after the siren against Geelong in R23 last year and then steamrolled through the finals, this year we kick a goal with 13secs left in R22 to win a crucial game, now we’re going to steamroll through 4 more games for back to back flags. 😉

Wow now that was a game for the ages. Carlton had everything to play for and we still beat them. No doubt they have us their all and we still won. So many games we’ve lost like this and for once we beat them. 
Melksham, Kozzie were back in form. I was a bit worried about a town at the start but he came good when we needed him. Now we’ve shown we can win when all hope seems lost. So proud of the boys tonight. Well done ❤️

Reckon Jayden Hunt is the only reason we won that game and it was due to a bit of dare - be nice if collectively we could employ that mindset across more than the last quarter.

It was funny, May said after the game "the pressure came off us once we got behind at the end and we started attacking"

That is our brand. We need to play four quarters of hard running attacking football. We didn't for most of the game. It was slow and predictable.

Such mixed feelings.

I'm really happy we won. I loved Kozzies trash talking at the end just as much as the goal.

Petty is just a mountain down back.

Melksham and Hunt, who woulda thunk?

I'm off to the Gabba next week. We have so much work to do. Hopefully this win will give us belief to start playing daring exhilarating football again.

It was an amazing and completely frustrating game.

I reckon we're playing at 70 percent of our capability.

A big win next week would restore my faith.

Geelong are looking ominous. We need to take another step up next week.

I mean come on. We're prepped for the finals after this run of high-end matches that's for sure.

Meanwhile Geelong have a series of soft games which will not prepare them for finals footy. It happened to them a few years ago too.

Confession time. 3 minutes to go I got up and said "we're done, we can't do it from here. We've lost all our close ones this year". Well, bugger me.

That was as close to a final as you will get. Not a great spectacle, but as tough as hell. Both sides will be very sore over the next 2 days. 

Delighted, shocked, annoyed, Exhiirated. 

I left my seat and headed to the exit but waits and saw a Lazarus style revival.

Carlton threw everything at us, we won.

 

BBB, please remember, you have two hands

Thats the thing I've noticed with our forwards we are constantly bombing the ball forward to a stagnant forward  who has 2 or 3 defenders to compete with, this has to be game plan related did not notice 1 leading forward all night. When BBB is able to run and jump he takes the mark and goals otherwise he is just trying to bring the ball to ground. I think we need to adjust our methods going i50

Egg on my face right now. Put my hand up and openly admit I got it wrong with the Melksham selection.

I've bashed him hard this year but the last few weeks he's completely changed his game to the point where he's important member.

Sorry Melky, you were [censored] unreal tonight.

Yawn. You do this all the time. How about you just stop bagging Melbourne players all the time?

Hamish McLaughlin just openly admitted that he was barracking for us to kick a point so that it guaranteed Carlton a spot in the finals.

Hey Hamish, how about you and Gil [censored] off to an island and never return.

Their island would be beautiful beyond your wildest dreams unfortunately 

Between them and their relatives they have more dough than than many a small nation

We are so lucky to have Jack Viney in this team. 
The bloke is a beast that scares the absolute s**t out of the opposition.

Not winning it this year is a bust

We must have got flogged based on all the comments with the same sentiment as this. We are up to our eyeballs in this Premiership race. Confidence and momentum are a wonderful thing. As is the fact that we have three undeniable champions in our team.

My God there are some sad sacks here.

I’ll happily take the 4 points, although it feels like we stole it.

we’re just so predictable over the past 10-12 rounds, we have lost all our offensive dare, Second to the ball, hate to say it but soft at the contest at times tonight.

unless we’re about to hit a switch but we’re struggling under the pressure of being reigning premiers it feels.

I’ll be cheering on at the Gabba, let’s hope some offensive is found during the week.

it would be nice to kick it to BBB on the lead just once and not to him with 3 defenders.

Don’t expect a response any time soon Nashy. 
Called @dazzledavey36 out last week and have been ear-bashed by crickets since. 🤣

c’mon Dazz…. You know I’m not having a crack but rather curiosity about how you answer this. 
Viney should’ve been traded a few years ago though hey?

    BLINK OF AN EYE by The Oracle

    In the year 2022, we learned that the fine between ultimate success in sport and failure can be measured in the blink of an eye. The Melbourne Football Club began the year where it had left off in 2021 - as the powerhouse of the AFL men’s competition.  They steamed towards the halfway mark of the season taking all before them until their winning streak of ten in a row (17 overall since the latter part of the premiership season) came to a crushing end with consecutive losses at the hands of

    CHANGES 2022 Part 03 by The Oracle

    Part Three - Comparing apples with pomegranates by The Oracle One of the truly pointless exercises after each year’s draft is the game over which club “won” the period in question. The reality is that there is no winner or loser at the time and it’s only years further down the track when a full assessment of how the picks turn out can be made, that the winning hand is revealed. And the draft results cannot be considered in isolation; you need to look at where each club stood before the

    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
