Rookie (1/10)



  1. I would also seriously consider dropping Viney and building up his confidence in the VFL. He is a serious liability for us out there at the moment. He is laboring around the ground and can't hit a target to save his life. I fear due to the foot injuries he will lack leg speed for the rest of his career.
  2. IN: Weideman, Melksham, Bowey OUT: Sparrow, Pickett, Hunt Kozzy needs a rest he's burnt out and you can't bring Brown in off a 3 disposal, 0 marks, 0 goals performance. I think Melksham has to come in as we clearly need more goal scoring power. Chandler would be a good alternative however, I don't think his latest performaces have warranted selection.
  3. In: Viney, Ben Brown Out: Sparrow, Weideman
  4. Just a few ideas for the types of players we need. Take with a grain of salt. Half Backs to replace Hibberd and Jetta: Ed Richards due to the plethora of half backs the dogs have; Johannisen as a short term fill Dan Houston and try get him back to VIC, Coffield as maybe a change of scenery would help him Eggmolesse-smith as a very cheap option for depth who has upside and skill Outside mids to support Langdon: Liam Duggan, Brayden Ham, Justin mcinerney, Oli Florent (long shot), petrevski-seton as a hybrid mid on the cheap to rejuvenate his career Ball use/forward of centre players: Jack Billings as a free agent, Rhylee west who we bid on when he was initially drafted who can't get a regular game, Ben Ainsworth, Kane Farrell, Petrucelle, Lachie Schultz, Luke Breust (2 year contract for the experience to help with kozzy, spargs and nibbla)
  5. If Melksham doesn't get dropped it's a disgrace. He offers nothing at the moment as much as he used to be one of my favourites. Weid has also had a few chances and still drops way too many marks and isn't having a big scoreboard impact. IN: Ben Brown, Langdon OUT: Weideman, Melksham
  6. I'd keep the team as is and get Viney and Dogga primed for the friday night blockbuster against the dogs. Chandler and Weids deserve another chance and I think having the extra small forward with the 3 pronged forward attack is a smart move.
  7. Clarry is a genuine freak. He's the number one contested possession player in the comp, has incredible hands, he's super quick and has strong hands overhead. He is just everywhere and I can't remember him ever covering the ground this well. Gawn made a point a couple of weeks ago that he's also working very hard defensively to get back to help the defenders. He tackles well, is super tough and I would argue is the most consistent player in the comp and never has a bad game. My favourite Melbourne football club player ever.
  8. I think we need to seriously consider dropping Gus. He needs to seriously lift and I don't think he's working hard enough to be able to fulfil his potential. In: Sparrow, Chandler Out: Brayshaw, Melksham
  9. In: Weideman Harmes Sparrow Chandler Out: Tomlinson Baker Jones Melksham I don't think we will be ruthless enough to do this but, you have to reward players and pick off form. Baker's ball use was dreadful, Melksham has no pressure whatsoever and tries to take on the tackler far too much. If he's not kicking goals or delivering the ball inside 50 with precision I don't see a place for him. Jones needs a rest and looks tired. Chandler has been playing up forward and through the midfield for stints which is a bonus. With Brown and Weid, the extra pressure forward will really help. Sparrow simply must play based off his best on ground performance in the VFL.
  10. Weideman for Melksham. Melksham doesn't apply enough defensive pressure and Weideman is a better marking target deep for us, with Tmac and Dogga both playing higher up the ground
  11. Gawn - a phenomenal performance Oliver - inside work incredible McDonald - a wonderful target Salem - classy and reliable Petracca - damaging as always Pickett - always super dangerous Jackson - frees up Max Lever - rock down back Langdon - 3 clutch goals Rivers - reads it well Hibberd - broke lines late Viney - selfless team player Brayshaw - courageous and tough Tomlinson - super improved player Brown - couple goals late Jordon - seems very tired Melksham - junk time goals Neal- Bullen - applied great pressure Hunt - burst from defence Spargo - tried his hardest Petty - was shaky early Jones - 300 then dropped?
  12. great call, either richards or vandermeer would be fantastic for our team. There is a squeeze at the dogs for those types of players. Vandermeer is also one of Clarry's best mates as they grew up together in Mooroopna.
