3 Things we can bank on next year



Recommended Posts

I am looking forward to -

Fitter, more sustained pressure

Tougher, be the hunters, take no prisoners

Smarter, kick long when it’s on, lower the eyes or kick sideways to open space and no more loopy handballs which ar 50/50 at best. Blood the youngsters.

 We blooded Sparrow, JJ, LJ, Kozzie, Riv and Bowey over a two year period and won a Granny we need to be more daring and don’t carry injured players.

We will learn to win at the G more often than this season.

Clarry & Trac will again knock each other out of the Brownlow.

We will bounce back and win the GF.

Getting back on track, I’m sure we can bank on ourselves pulling our hair out at some point when the CS haven’t evolved…

either our list and composition changes drastically or we will have to adapt the game style

1. Charlie Spargo has a breakout season and is talked about as the next Brent Harvey.

2. Jacob Van Rooyen is mispronounced by a commentator during a huge pack mark... Rooyening the moment.

3. Christian Petracca will get the most Brownlow votes but will not be eligible due to suspension for bumping Patrick Cripps.

1. Jake Melksham will be sh*t-canned on DL.

2. Jake Melksham will be sh*t-canned on DL.

3. Jake Melksham will be sh*t-canned on DL.

But you know what… I don’t care.
That he’s being sh*t-canned on DL means he’s with us for another year and that he’s with us for another year means the usual pot-shotters will be most aggrieved. And this amuses me no end. 😁

The second of these is looking shaky. 

We are talking 2023 season. If he is still there then God help us as the AFL will have probably imploded.

We can bank on Luke Jackson in *insert colours*

Not saying it is likely to happen but what if neither club could come up with a deal we like?

You missed Joel Smith will be [censored] canned as well *

 

*as long as he plays seniors .. playing ressies DL seems to think he will be the next Garry Ablett Senior if we played him forward....

Dees will miss the top 8.

I’ve actually thought this too. I just don’t think Goody will change enough and with the looming exit of Yze and possibly Mark Williams, the incoming coaches will probably not feel comfortable in challenging him.

1. Kozzy, finally will take Mark of the Year (century) on top of Luke Jackson's head in R1 trip to Perth (theatre);

2. Oliver or Petracca to win the Brownlow, both either way, they will finish either 1, 2 in the count; &

3. Dees to bounce back and beat the Blues in a thriller in the GF (just have a feeling about them?🤷‍♂️).

Agree with both points. Also, I think it’s fair to suggest that the improvement of the sides around us seems to be quickly surpassing the plateaued side we presented week-in-week-out (before I get shouted down by other posters, I do acknowledge the injuries we also carried).

    CHANGES 2022 Part Three 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

    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
