  2. Is it the end of the line or one more lurch forward to an unlikely redemption?
  3. On Sunday, the Melbourne Football Club that won three consecutive games by in excess of 50 points last month returns to the Gabba, the scene of the last of those victories which was a 56 point drubbing of Collingwood. The Demons got off to a good start and won every quarter with a ruthless and powerful brand of football. They kicked 16 goals that day, their accuracy in front of goal a tribute to the skills the put on display throughout the afternoon and evening. In the four matches played since then, their average goals scored collapsed to a little over six per game and they have fallen from a strong finals contender to a rank outsider with kicking skills so poor that they have consistently failed to hit the proverbial barn door. The humiliation will continue when their season will effectively end on Saturday evening against the Greater Western Sydney Giants. Indeed, the humiliation began with the words uttered by coach Simon Goodwin this week: "As a club, I think we need to become a much more ruthless club and really grow up and start to perform in these types of games. "We need to start becoming more mature as a club and more unconditional about the way we go about our business." These words are not only starkly obvious in light of two pathetic performances against lowly teams in Sydney and Fremantle that they were expected to beat even in the oppressive conditions in Cairns, but they ring hollow to any Demon fan who can recall the same dictum from former coach Neale Daniher in the mid-2000s when the same ruthlessness call flopped badly time and again and culminated in his mid season dismissal a few years later. In their past two games, the Demons have taken the field as if the games were meaningless dead rubbers instead of the potential season deciders that they were in actuality. Against the Swans but with the aid of the breeze, they conceded the first two goals and were virtually down and out by half time before butchering their comeback opportunity with several misses for goal from close in. Against the Dockers, they recorded a shameful 53% disposal efficiency (c.f 77% v the Magpies) — a figure that reflects a lack of intensity and a sign that the players were switched off, fatigued, couldn’t give a damn or all of the above. There’s no need to go any further. The 2020 agony for Demon fans will end on Saturday night ... in humiliation. GWS Giants by 50 points.

  5. Here's your chance Demonlanders. It's time for the people to speak. You tell us who will win this Saturday between Melbourne and GWS Sydney. A selection of your comments will be published in our match preview on Thursday.
  6. It wasn't all that long ago when Mark Neeld reached the zenith of his coaching career when his Demons booted a record 12 goals in a quarter. By way of contrast, his replacement managed four for a whole game last Saturday, the same a fortnight before that. Go figure?
