I’ll caveat the following that I’m extremely nervous and that any team can honestly win it from here. Carlton are a great team, but with many threats from friends of 🎾 emojis (straight sets) incoming if we lose, I’ve got to believe the following…

Dees by 36

Defence: May and Lever to dominate. McKay and Martin are massive outs. Martin is targeted more inside 50 than any other player.

Midfield: We’ll have ruck advantage with TDK likely having to spend more time forward to fill McKay’s role. Carlton’s midfield has the tilt though.

Forward: We’re down on stock, but if we can lower the eyes and stop the high entries, I think our strategy of playing small will beat their tall defence.

Hoping the Dees to open strong in 1Q, expect an arm wrestle 2-3Q, then a blow out 4Q.

Turn it up. They haven't won a premiership in 28 years and won one final in the last 10 years.

And that win was last week, when we haven’t won one in 2 years! Historical stats like yours and mine can be abused.

Objectively speaking, they’ve won 9 of their past 10 games which included beating Collingwood and Port Adelaide. As they sit right now they have a great midfield and defence, and therefore they are a great team.

I genuinely believe that we are better. Still doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate who we’re against.

On a lighter note,

Where are the MFC rooms ,are they permanent or do they get shafted from one room to another even though its our Home ground.

I noticed on Facebook a dees supporter filming dees running out from the cricket pavillion end or Ponsford stand last Thursday night.

Stand looked half empty. I thought we ran out from the Members wing but i havent lived in OZ for years.

Games that i have watched o/seas dont show the pre match run outs.

Where can I listen?

I listened to some comments from him on Whateley, was pre-team drop, but still very relevant and insightful. 

Not super surprising obviously, he talked about us needing to be more daring, going for the extra handball/few metres in going forward and risking a few more turnovers. Said Langdon was his magnet this week. Was interesting, would be good to see him make more of an impact, he's certainly due.

Just saw the highlights from our 2000 finals win against the Blues, on the AFL FB page

Was great to see that - good comeback and some really lovely delivery into the 50 that day! Would be good to see some of that today. Hopefully no need for a comeback! 

Also another reminder that Neale squeezed the absolute most possible out of that team.

Since the final siren last week I have been dreading tonight's game but something in me flicked this morning as the game got closer... 

Through all those dark years all we as supporters dreamt of was been apart of finals & games like tonight...  The players saw one of their mates get KO'd 5 mins into a final then we played one prime midfielder short for the game, all of this on top of outplaying the premiership favorites for 3 quarters & really with a bit of luck should have pinched the game.

Everyone crapping on about Carlton & their hot form, we should have beaten them (well we did) then they fell in against the GC then lost to the Giants & were average for large parts again Sydney last week... I see no reason why we don't get the win tonight then give Brisbane a huge shake up next week, this side won't go down easy.

Hmmm .... I'm guessing the first pot will go down at an (early) luncheon Dub.

Who drinks out of pots when pints are available?

Uncle, my opinion of you is slipping.

Our banner isn’t at all concerned with the opposition. We’re using our space wisely, including a shoutout to Gussy and Hibbo. Oh, and THE MOST amazing graphic thus far. A montage of players: Kozzie and my absolute favourite inclusion… three of the “lesser lights” in Nibs, Smithy and Spaz. Not a Maxy, Tracc or Clarrie in sight. 😁

 

'Let's do this for Gus, and squeeze this team of pus'?

Surely Schache or Grundy sub right???  Why do we have Schache if we didn't put him in this week FFS??!?!

Because he's not an AFL level footballer, let alone a finals player.

Given what the fu&)(&/) happened to Gus, here’s the Dees preparing for this weeks game !!!

Why is Maynard training with us?

Or is it just a lookalike?

Fellow Minions and beloved d'landers attending the game tonight ... yes that's you....

Please ask yourself, are we just supporters or  can we add to this match as barrackers, just as we did on QB against the filth!

....I EMPLORE EVERY ONE OF YOU....TO STAND TOGETHER AS ONE MIGHTY DEMON ARMY TONIGHT.

I KNOW MANY ON HERE ARE ALREADY GREAT BARRACKERS AND NEED NO ENCOURAGEMENT

BUT LET'S LIFT THE ROOF OFF.

AS GREAT AS THEY ARE (and i'm sure there are plemty on here...i'm also one of them albeit nothing like the full on serious players that lead them like Ryan, WC etc) DON'T LEAVE TOO MUCH OF THE HEAVY LIFTING TO THE OFFICIAL D.A. 

BE EXTRA LOUD TONIGHT NO MATTER WHERE YOU'RE SITTING (EVEN THE MCC) RIGHT FROM THE OPENING BOUNCE!!!!

LET'S GIVE THE BOYS A HUGE LIFT AS THE 19TH MAN AND BRING EM HOME

NO QUARTER TILL THE FINAL SIREN!

CARN THE MIGHTY DEMONS!

    GALLANT by KC from Casey

    The world “gallant” is not one that is readily acceptable to losing teams in our game of football so when it was used in the context of the Casey Demons’ loss to Sandringham in yesterday’s match at Casey Fields, it left a bitter taste in the mouth.  The Demons went into the game against the St Kilda affiliated Zebras with the advantage of playing on their home turf (not that this has been a major asset in 2024) and with very little else going in their favour. The Saints have close to a full

    MEANWHILE by Whispering Jack

    … meanwhile, at about the same time that Narrm was putting its feet on the accelerator to obliterate the long-suffering Euro-Yroke combination, I heard someone mention in passing that Kuwarna was leading Waalitj Marawar by a whopping 46 to 1 halfway through the second quarter of their game over in Adelaide. “What is football coming to?” I asked myself.  In front of my eyes, the Demons were smashing it through the midfield, forcing turnovers and getting the footy to their forwards who w

    GAMEDAY: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    It's Game Day and after 2 losses on the trot the Dees must win against the Saints today at the MCG to keep in touch with the Top 4. A loss today will see them drop out of the Top 8 for the first time since 2020.
