Discussion on recent allegations about the use of illicit drugs in football is forbidden
  • IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING

    Posting unsubstantiated rumours on this website is strictly forbidden.

    Demonland has made the difficult decision to not permit this platform to be used to discuss & debate the off-field issues relating to the Melbourne Football Club including matters currently being litigated between the Club & former Board members, board elections, the issue of illicit drugs in footy, the culture at the club & the personal issues & allegations against some of our players & officials ...

    We do not take these issues & this decision lightly & of course we believe that these serious matters affecting the club we love & are so passionate about are worthy of discussion & debate & I wish we could provide a place where these matters can be discussed in a civil & respectful manner.

    However these discussions unfortunately invariably devolve into areas that may be defamatory, libelous, spread unsubstantiated rumours & can effect the mental health of those involved. Even discussion & debate of known facts or media reports can lead to finger pointing, blame & personal attacks.

    The repercussion is that these discussions can open this website, it’s owners & it’s users to legal action & may result in this website being forced to shutdown.

    Our moderating team are all volunteers & cannot moderate the forum 24/7 & as a consequence problematic content that contravenes our rules & standards may go unnoticed for some time before it can be removed.

    We reserve the right to delete posts that offend against our above policy & indeed, to ban posters who are repeat offenders or who breach our code of conduct.

    WE HAVE BUILT A FANTASTIC ONLINE COMMUNITY AT DEMONLAND OVER THE PAST 23 YEARS & WE WOULD LIKE TO CONTINUE TO BE ABLE TO DISCUSS THE CLUB WE LOVE & ARE SO PASSIONATE ABOUT.

    Thank you for your continued support & understanding. Go Dees.


Fritsch's Goals 2022

Recommended Posts

Watched this with the sound down, Fasch playing in the background - along with Telemann, a composer second only to Bach and Handel - and all the talk about his 'selfishness' is absolute bulldust. He saw an opportunity, he went for it. Most often, he was rewarded.

The interesting thing is how often the Demons were in front before a last quarter demise. 

Also, what is interesting is that in the last 4 games of the season, the Demons decisively beat sides which they later succumbed to...

  • Demonland changed the title to Fritsch's Goals 2022

That reel shows what a truly class player he is. I would rather have him kicking around the corner from the middle of a crowd than, eg, Tracc lining up for a set shot 20m out. As I have said in other threads: he is there to kick goals and the criticism of him being selfish was totally wrong. He is not like Spargo, there to assist; he is there to finish.

Two things that really stood out for me were his ability to keep his feet and be 100% anticipating the loose ball from a marking contest, and just how quickly he can set himself for a kick after taking the ball from sometimes quite awkward positions.

First one gains him half a second on opponents reaction and the second means he needs half a second less to make a realistic shot on goal. Those two traits have earned him somewhere in the range of 10-15 goals in 2022.

The other that's gained him probably another 10 - 15 goals the past few years is that he's got his set short routine perfected and so rarely misses shots, particularly the regulation ones.

Overall, he's really just in such a great head space for a forward that you want the ball in his hands around goal, because you know that good things will come of it.

All forwards are there to kick, create and/or assist goals, if your in the 50 mtr area and you are at best advantage to goal, go for it. Fritta is a master of this with his sublime skills and a cool head.He is also there for setting up others, leading out of areas to suit others, tackle, chase etc. Under rated at this too

The media pulled 2 or 3 shocking decisions by Fritta and made a story for click bait, and others fell for it. He is a gun who needs to learn, develop further and fall not into the media circus as he did afterwards trying to play too unselfish. 
 

The best medium forward in the game!!

Thanks, Monbon; a nice watch (the joyful crowd backdrop of the finger-poining celebration of the last goal (sadly just before the final demise) provided a family pic for my screensaver).

And extra thanks: Telemann's '12 Fantasias for Flute without Bass' provided a musical backdrop of exactly the right length!

I urge you to explore Fasch: there's plenty on YouTube, look out for the Overtures...

Wrong on two fronts IMO Mon.

There were 2/3 glaring examples of selfishness the Handball miss to Petracca 15 m out and he would have run into a an open goal is the worst, another from memory was a pass instead of a shot which he flummed. 

The reason  you are saying that it is I guess you are only watching the ACTUAL  goals not the assists which is what he was carpeted for. I know that would never have happened in 2021 for sure.

Kossie can burn teammates when he tries goal snaps from the pockets sometimes but he rarely if never misses the very obvious assists.

The other statement on losses to teams we beat is only half right. We lost to Brisbane in Finals and beat them in R23 by 64 pts. Lost to Swans in Finals after we lost to them in R12. 

Hope you enjoyed 55 wonderful Fritta goals from a very underrated player anA grader I regard.

And you would have enjoyed your music at the same time  a couple of very underrated artists as well.

The problem with the Petracca one was simply that he missed the shot himself. As we can see from the highlights reel, he made up for that with many many goals from difficult shots. 
 

The problem is, criticism like this meant that he then spent several games giving off to other players, when he should have taken the shot himself,  only to watch them miss it, and, and some cases, lose us the game. He is paid to kick goals, not to assist.

He is a talent at a level above most competitors - we do not want to overlook him (Fritta) at any stage of a game or season. Gutsy, highly competent, opportunistic and reliable. The only forward who bothers to find space, make space and get the job done - most times, effortlessly. With a strengthening forward line and hopefully, a better game plan through half-back to deep forward, Fritta will have even more freedom to cut loose. He is starting to look like - and be as effective as - Gerard Healy up forward when playing for the red'nblue.

    TRAINING: Friday 19th April 2024

    They are out for a run just as it starts raining. It didn't last long, ended up a reasonable session weather wise.  Light duties, BBB, rehab Farris-White, Melky, Salem and Spargo, all with private trainers. They are all playing soccer, huge amount of noise. 36-40 (difficult to get a count) in the main squad, biggest I've seen it in ages. Choco is barking out the orders. Goody has intense body language as he observes. Bowey in a lime green cap (no contact), and in the sim

    ICEBREAKER by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons have broken the ice for season 2024 with a pulsating come-from-behind victory over Port Melbourne in which it took the lead for the first time at the halfway mark of the final quarter. The game played in mild Autumn conditions in neutral territory at Kinetic Park, Frankston, never reached great heights in standard but it proved gripping in character at the end at the Casey Demons overcame the Borough to win by 15 points after trailing badly early in the second half.  P

    MAULED by Whispering Jack

    The writing was on the wall from the very first bounce of the football. The big men went up, Max Gawn more often than not, decisively won the ruck hit out and invariably a Brisbane Lions onballer either won the battle on the ground or halved the contest and they went at it repeatedly until they finally won out. Melbourne managed the first goal from Alex Neal-Bullen but after that the visitors shut out every area of Demon presence around the ground except in the ruck duels. It was a mauling.
