Date: Wednesday 29th November 2023

Time: 9:30am

Place: Gosch's Paddock

I've had confirmation from the club that training will take place on Wednesday and Friday and Gosch's Paddock at 9:30am. I'm going to try to make it down for at least one of those sessions. We'd love it if any Demonland Trackwatchers in attendance can provide us with any information and their observations.

I have to stay home with one of my kiddos tomorrow, tempted to go down for a gander but the weather looks iffy. Is there public parking at Gosch's?

There's usually parking along Alexandra Ave and a short walk over Morrell pedestrian Bridge straight to Goshes paddock

I’m on my way there, but if you wanna know more than just whose hair looks good, I’m not yer man. 😅

 

I hadn’t planned on going but a friend who loves the Dees but hates going anywhere on her own insisted we meet up there same as we did Monday. She just called me to bail. 🙄 Looks like I’ll have to annoy the coaches a little more than usual. 😜

Thanks Layz, but I had trouble telling *Jed and Petts apart the other day so my report mightn’t be worth reading  😭

* still not sure which one it was. I hope it was Petts because if it was Jed he might wonder why I called him Harry… and we’ve met before… several times  🤦‍♀️

Your red and blue face will turn purple in this rain WCW. Better wear a hat so they don't think you are a Freo spy trying to pinch another of our young guns. 😉

Ok but I ain’t no Pickett Fence.

So, they’re all out in the middle skipping. It’s pretty cute. They look like little kids.

Selwyn is working with Fritta who is running along the boundary about 20 metres then he stops, looks at his watch then runs again. Fritta stopped for a chat. He said his foot/leg is coming along well, and they’re happy with the progress 

Now they’re practicing short sharp kicks to each other.

Now they’ve split into two groups.

Meanwhile Fritta is running really well. He just told me he’s currently running at 40% I smiled and said that’s good but tbh I have nfi what that means.

The group up my end are doing running overlapping handball drills.

Ricky Lever is in this group. If he’s not our next captain there’s something terribly amiss.

A roll call of those present and those not present will suffice. Thank you for your service.

This weather kept me away today. Although Fridays forecast isn't looking much better.

He's always been my number 1 preference for our next captain by a long way.

Glad others are starting to realise what an incredibly influential leader he is.

Roll Call - apart from Clayton, ANB and Lachie Hunter were both there and training with the main group. Clayton just doing short runs with the physio. Fritta and Petty not involved with the group. Fritta doing stretches, Petty seems not ready yet. So 11 of the 44 not there, Chandler, May, Viney, Brayshaw, B Brown, Kosi, Langdon, Schache, Tomlinson, Melksham, Smith.

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Who would have thought?    Collingwood had a depleted side with several star players out injured, Max Gawn was in stellar form, Christian Petracca at the top of his game and Simon Goodwin was about to pull off a masterstroke in setting Alex Neal-Bullen onto him to do a fantastic job in subduing the Magpies' best player. Goody had his charges primed to respond robustly to the challenge of turning around their disappointing performance against Fremantle in Alice Springs. And if not that, t

    TURNAROUND by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons won their first game at home this year in the traditional King’s Birthday Weekend clash with Collingwood VFL on Sunday in a dramatic turnaround on recent form that breathed new life into the beleaguered club’s season. The Demons led from the start to record a 52-point victory. It was their highest score and biggest winning margin by far for the 2024 season. Under cloudy but calm conditions for Casey Fields, the home side, wearing the old Springvale guernsey as a mark of res

    POSTGAME: Rd 13 vs Collingwood

    Once again inaccuracy and inefficiency going inside 50 rears it's ugly head as the Demons suffered their second loss on the trot and their fourth loss in five games as they go down to the Pies by 38 points on Kings Birthday at the MCG.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 13 vs Collingwood

    It's Game Day and the Demons are once again faced with a classic 8 point game against a traditional rival on King's Birthday at the MCG. A famous victory will see them reclaim a place in the Top 8 whereas a loss will be another blow for their finals credentials.

    BOILED LOLLIES by The Oracle

    In the space of a month Melbourne has gone from chocolates to boiled lollies in terms of its standing as a candidate for the AFL premiership.  The club faces its moment of truth against a badly bruised up Collingwood at the MCG. A win will give it some respite but even then, it won’t be regarded particularly well being against an opponent carrying the burden of an injured playing list. A loss would be a disaster. The Demons have gone from a six/two win/loss ratio and a strong percentag

    CLEAN HANDS by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons headed into town and up Sydney Road to take on the lowly Coburg Lions who have been perennial VFL easy beats and sitting on one win for the season. Last year, Casey beat them in a practice match when resting their AFL listed players. That’s how bad they were. Nobody respected them on Saturday and clearly not the Demons who came to the game with 22 players (ten MFC), but whether they came out to play is another matter because for the most part, their intensity was lacking an
