GAMEDAY: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda



Recommended Posts

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.

Season on the line with this one.

And for those underestimating St Kilda, they’ve lost to Port by 11 away, GWS by 1 away, Hawthorn by 5 away and Freo by 17. And of course  they beat Collingwood in their only MCG appearance this year.

Not being hyperbolic, but I do honestly think that if we lose this, we will continue to struggle and may not make the 8.

I don't think that's hyperbolic. If we lose two on the trot to no finals teams, it will seriously affect our chances in what is a very tight year.

Win well and we will be 4th and 6 points off second. Lose and we'll be 9th and only one game from 12th.

Most of the rest of the season are 8 point games. Saints North and the return game against WCE are the only games against non finals contenders. We just have to win them.

And if we park the bus and grind out a 0-0 draw against Ross The Boss, we'll sneak into the eight on percentage over Walyalup, with an MCG final against the Cats in two weeks. Go Dees!

‘an MCG final against the Cats in two weeks’. 
Self medicating and then posting at 2am is not a good idea.

Everyone's talking like the finals are on in two weeks with all of this 4th or 9th business and it's not even round 12/24! :laugh:

I think our poor starts and most recent loss gives our upcoming opponents a psychological boost we can ill afford. We need to arrest the trend and return to the winners dias in a statement win.

It's going to be a grind this one, i am concerned about the Saints running power and their half backs on the MCG. 

if we lose this game i think it'll be really challenging to finish top 4 this season, 

Time for Viney, Oliver, Salem, May and all the other really good players who haven't been quite at their best to step up and find their best form because we desperately need them if 2024 is going to bring any sort of meaningful success.

memo to Goodwin.  His name is Bradley Hill.  He runs and runs and delivers.  Elite disposal.  Elite efficiency.   You must pay heavy attention to him and fellow quarterback Wanganeen-Milera.  Do not let them wander around unmanned!!!  FFS.

If we lose today, it’ll be a battle to get top 8. Lions, Dees, Suns all are outside the 8. Lose today and we have a tough road ahead!! 
 

ps. Aside from Lever, this is our best 22.  
(Saints arguably have their best 22 … Membrey & Crouch maybe could make them better)

Not confident at all and I’ve even put some money on the Saints ($3.40 is too good to resist). Our scoring and turnover game is a disaster at the minute and a lot of our mids just aren’t getting enough of the ball nor doing any damage with it. Hopefully we see a shift back to some of our old game plan today with a better inside 50 differential and we kick a decent score. The Saints have a very limited midfield so I’ll be disappointed if we don’t see better numbers out of Viney, Oliver and Sparrow.

$3.40 wowee ala Roaming Brian 

someone who does not follow Melbourne is very confident.  Like last week.  It’s games like this that we should win easily that we indeed do not turn up to play until half time. 
Game Over.   That first quarter 

still not confident

absolutely. i'm unsure who we have that's actually capable of going with them though, perhaps it's a case of whoever is on them needs to make themselves dangerous, you don't mind Hill getting 25 cheap touches on the wing if his opponent kicks 4 goals

Here's hoping.

If Petty plays fwd and struggles, then surely the fwd experience is over for him.

I think he will play down back today.

    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.

    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
