Welcome to Demonland Josh Schache



Recommended Posts

Have no idea if this will come to fruition or even come out in the media and I put it down to pure speculation.

Was just having coffee with a few mates who I hadn't seen for a while and one of them is heavily involved with the Murray Bushrangers under 18's as a development coach.

We were speaking about the junior talent and then got talking about this year's trade period.

Out of the blue he mentioned that apparently we've shown some interest in Josh Schache and have had chats to Josh and his management? 

I would like to think I can trust his word purely that he's got contacts within recruiting circles and Josh being an ex bushie.

I have own opinion on this and I honestly don't think it's the right fit even though we're lacking a key forward.

Reminds me so much of Weideman in terms of their AFL journey.

All the natural talent in the world (he's a beautiful kick) but can't put it together in the seniors for multiple weeks.

He did play an excellent game as a defender against us in one those COVID lock down games in 2021 so perhaps the club has a long memory.

If it's true it doesn't make sense to me.

We have Weideman and Brown who lack the physical presence imo and it doesn't make sense when Goodwin has a mantra of getting in players who are genuine competitors and compete.

Then again, at the time I thought we did the right thing by staying away from Peter Wright..

If Schache came in to fill the depth spot left by Mitch Brown then I don't absolutely hate it tbh.

He'd come in on minimum chips and would expect to play mostly VFL IMO.

They can't all be zingers...

True.

Probably good way to look at it.

Feel there's too many forwards on our list that can't compete enough physcally. 

Fair call, BUT if they did pull the trigger on Petty forward and JVR comes in too then all of a sudden we have a couple of absolute mongrels inside 50.

I'd really love to know if we put any work into Wright, because he has been an absolute steal by Essendon.

Yeah true. As you said as well he'd be some pretty talented depth if he came cheap, he just strikes me as a guy who would frustrate me often!

Didn't he play a couple of games down back for the Dogs? As I recall he was at least useful in that role.

As a forward ....... well he makes a good defender.

Haven't followed him closely, but he's definitely more of a swingman now.

In saying that, finished the year off in the VFL with a few big bags of goals.

Yes, one of them against us at the G in late 2021.

Played well that night.

Absolutely, we'd have to have very low expectations. I'd just see him as a younger Mitch Brown. Will be good for Casey, might play an AFL game or two, but that would be about it.

We were keen in his draft year.

When GCS let him go it was effectively a salary dump for a big contract.  Traded for a 4th round future pick.

Doubt we could have absorbed his salary.  Had TMc or ANB trades eventuated we may night have been able to.  Water under the bridge now.

He should have got that free in the GF. A sliding doors moment. I think we must only be looking at him as a possible replacement for Petty if Petty goes forward. I would not mind him as our third tall intercept mark down back.

I'm not entirely sure we were actually that keen?

One of Wright's weaknesses in his junior days was his perceived lack of competitiveness, in other words he was soft and we barely showed interest?

During this period Paul Roos and Todd Viney had a mantra of only drafting players who were highly competitive and driven. Which makes sense why we had Jake Lever rated as a potential top 3 talent.

A Zinger and minimum chips pictured this morning at AFL Trade Headquarters.  The rumour may be true.

Schache, Weid and Tomlinson rotting away at Casey. Yuck.

Regardless of how cheap he comes, unless the Footy Dept see him playing a meaningful role at AFL level, it's a waste of a list spot.

    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.
