AFLW: Rd 10 vs West Coast



Recommended Posts

Watching footy for 40+ years and never been so nervous during a 12-goal thumping. 

Oh well, no point ruing what might have been, we’ve clearly got the talent to win the thing.

Funny to think that had they been able to do it, the women, like the men, would have snatched the minor premiership right at the death, albeit by vastly different margins.

Is anyone worried about our easy draw? Adelaide will be a different proposition. Great win by the girls but gee have we had some easy games recently.

We really have had most of the games our way. No score board pressure and our tackling have forced the errors in our opposition. We have been playing freely. It will be interesting if the opposition start scoring well and they don't panic when we come at them.

The yips could easily take over if we start panicking. 

Hoping winning form gets our confidence high and we continue the fast, hard and attacking game. Would hate to see us drop the bundle. Though we possibly will need to try some tempo footy if we start losing control. 

We also have been playing in poor environmental conditions. It will be interesting to see how we go when skilled play is easier to do.

They say finals are won by pressure and the backline. In this we have been doing very well.

I think we are on a mission, we will be too, disciplined, resistant, hardened and strong willed.

It wasn't a disadvantage for the Geelong mens team this year. We've had hard draws to complete recent seasons and it took its toll. I much prefer the easier run home

I actually think 2nd spot has some pluses.  There are 3 top sides in the comp and we meet one when there's a second chance, win and we likely avoid the other in the prelim!

 

Tend to agree.

Us and the Lions are the standout teams. I don't fear the Crows this year. I don't think we should fear playing an inter-state granny if it comes to it the only disappointment is I won't be able to go to Brisbane to attend.

I will go to Brisbane if we make the GF (it’s difficult to see Brisbane not winning through). Anyone other Demonlanders thinking of going?

I’m confident we’ll make it to the GF and just as confident we’ll win (anyone, anywhere, anytime) even if up against Brisbane, and even if it’s played in Brisbane. 

What I’m worried about is the crowd size and in particular that we’d be so outnumbered.

I intend on going to Brisbane if we play there (even if it means selling a kidney - pretty sure I’ve still got one left 🤔) but understandably not many Victorians will be able to attend. Therefore I’m hoping that the GF is staged at Marvel or Ikon. Soz, interstate sides, not Soz. 😁

I’ve just read The Age summary of the game. They didn’t have Libby Birch in the best. Can you believe it? She was outstanding. 

Agree. The lot of backline players unfortunately.

Realistically you'd need to put all 18 in the best yesterday.

Did anyone else hear the rumour mentioned on this week’s AFLW Dee Brief poddy that the GF will be played at Docklands regardless of who makes it? 

 

I asked Mitch and Mandy (the pod hosts) about that and they said it will be played at Marvel, it’s just that it’s not official yet.

What about the prelim?

If the GF is to be at the Gabba(?) it'd be good for the girls to experience a 'stadium' final in the lead-up.

True. But I doubt very much the GF would be at the Gabba.

And not the end of the world if it’s at Metricon. We’ve won our last three matches there.

Ah, that's right, they have a 'suburban' ground, too?

p.s. Noticed Zede put her 'tail up yesterday. Waddayareckon? (I had wondered when someone would start to be concerned about putting an eye out!)

I love Edo, tail up or down! I’ll even forgive her for tucking her guernsey into her shorts. 
There’s a lady in the DA, around 80yo and Eden is her favourite player. I asked her why Eden? She said, “She has fabulous hair!” 🤣

Won't be at the Gabba. It's booked for cricket. If Lions host it will be on the Gold Coast

    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

    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
