PREGAME: Rd 01 vs Western Bulldogs

Schache's gone for Fullarton that's a no brainer.

The rest isn't easy.

I think it has to be either Hore or Woey for Bowey and keeping Salem in the midfield. How many times did Salo lace kicks to forwards (only for them to drop them) last night? He provides us such a needed balance.

Pickett for Laurie.

Not sure if Spargo/Billings swap roles or stay in or go entirely. Not a lot of confidence in either of them.

Give Billing’s a go another of Simon’s completely from Outer space Sub selections. Maybe he had Spargs 10/12 per game possies  and disposal in mind but Billings gets 15 plus surely an advantage and his disposal is not too shabby either. 

Give Woe the nod over Marty but it does make our defence more vulnerable but at least Woe may be able to rotate with Salo occasionally.

The 50 he gave away, he struck a player in the head. It might have been an accident but at the ground it didn’t look great. 

Didn't look great on the TV, either. Most optimistic expression I could use would be "clumsy" which is the polite way of saying it was deliberate and head-high, although not necessarily forceful.

The VFL game whenever it is going to be important.  

Love to see Woey, Brown Jnr, Fullarton kill it and get their spots.

I'm concerned about May's fitness, no doubt he hurt something last night, last thing we need May to be out and tmac come in, bulldogs talls will kill us.

The Axe:

Chandler, Spargo, Billings. Shack.

Injured:

Bowey.

 

In:

Kosy, Big  Brown, Little Brown, Tommy, Woey.

 

On Notice:

Van Rooyen.

Must stop trying to be Tommahawk.

Lead up the ground, keep in front, attack the ball overhead with soft hands.

Go to the ball carrier, maybe view some old footage of Neita leading to the ball. If you must hit the pack split it open, they’ll soon look over their shoulder.

Changes that should happen:

Fullerton in for Schache

Kozzi in for one of Chandler or Spargo, probably the latter

Someone else for Bowey

 

Changes Goodwin will make:

Tom McDonald for Schache (sub)

Ben Brown for JVR (rested)

Kozzie for Bower (inj)

Spargo to playing roaming defender/plonker

Billings omitted

Kossie and Woe for starters. I’d drop Spargo play Billing’s and Kynan B and not sure on Chandler and Schache after only one game.

Fully agree that we have to keep Salem in the middle.

Bowey's injury hurts on so many levels. Robs us of his kicking, pressures us to push Salem back and prevents us pushing Rivers up more.

I'd prefer to go with Woewodin's run.

Given their pre-seasons Billings deserves a full game over Spargo. Should never have been the sub last night and should start next week.

MRO report is out and much to my surprise, Spargo was not cited. Nor was any other Melbourne player. Apparently Spargo's actions didn't even warrant a comment from the MRO. 

I'm pretty stunned by that, but I did only see one replay at the ground (which I thought supported my initial view live that it was one of those clumsy strikes that gets a week).

The only good thing about last night is we won’t ever see Schache is a Demons jumper again. No idea how he continually fools people at training. He has zero intensity and it spreads through the group. 

No offence to the bloke, i’m sure he’s a nice guy, just not cut out for footy

Agree. Hore needs to come in for Bowey - we need to be able to keep Salem in the midfield. Woey jnr doesn’t help with that, though I’d be happy for him to replace any of Laurie, Spargo or Billings.

Agree on Hore call. Kate!

This is second hand information, so could well be wrong. I thought I'd share anyway. 

Bowsa is reported to have a crack in the coracoid process in his shoulder blade. He will need surgery and likely to miss 8 weeks.

    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.

    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
