  1. Your votes for tonight’s game please - 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1
  2. Today’s game against North Melbourne is one of those make or break games for Melbourne. With both Max Gawn and Jack Viney out of the side, others will be expected to step up, be counted and show leadership all over the ground. A couple of weeks ago the pundits were describing them as “irrelevant” but a win today could see the Demons in a position to prove them wrong and remaining in the mix to challenge the top sides as we move towards the business end of the season
  3. The 2020 equation is simple for the Melbourne Football Club – it must keep winning and it must take some big scalps during the second half of the season without dropping games against the lesser lights. The Demons have gone down this season to the 1st, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th teams on the ladder including twice by less than a goal in games that could easily have gone the other way. Against that, they have beaten 11th, 13th, 14th and 18th and though they thumped the Crows during the week, the game was still in the balance until early in the final quarter. The fact that this week’s opponent,
  4. We were cooked. It was the end of a long hard season and we had a massive injury list. We had both Max and Preussy in the same side and were playing them at Blundstone Arena where we always lose by less than a kick and we obliged ... Aren’t we glad we’re playing them at our fortress, the Adelaide Oval this time? THE TEAMS NORTH MELBOURNE B Marley Williams Scott D.

  5. It was appropriate that Melbourne was playing its last game of season 2019 in Hobart. After all, how much further south could the team go? And much as it has done in many of the previous 22 games, the side managed to extract a loss from a winning position by simply giving the ball back to the opposition time and time again. In fact, they gave it back to the opposition to the tune of 53 points from turnovers while, by way of contrast North Melbourne contributed only 17 points to their opposition in this manner. We can argue about the cattle the Demons has left after the squad was ra
  6. How about that? We've won one in a row against North!!!
  7. ROO-DOO GAWN ... by George on The Outer It had been twelve years since Melbourne last beat North Melbourne but it finally happened in what turned out to be an emphatic win by 37 points. It was an almost single-handed demolition of the opposition by Max Gawn that put the Demons over the line, and demonstrated how much his influence was missed in season 2017. Gawn’s opponent, Todd Goldstein, was being touted as having returned to his best AA form, but big Max with 50 hit outs, 7 contested possessions, 3 inside 50’s and over a dozen hit outs to advantage (nine of those resulting in Melb

You all know where this is going because we’ve been there many times over the past dozen or so years. It started sometime in 2006 at the end of the season.

  12. THE WHIRLWIND by Whispering Jack This experience of supporting Melbourne is a bit like walking your way through an emotional whirlwind. You get very little time to savour the rare experience of a seven goal win over what is acknowledged as the leading team in the competition on their home patch before one of your finest young players suffers a concussion for the fourth time in twelve months and all of a sudden his career is in question. That's what happened to Angus Brayshaw less than 24 hours after the team triumphantly strode off the Adelaide Oval last Saturday evening. The highs
  13. Not just for the players, but for the supporters as well. Once again, a Melbourne side comes into a game off the back of a first class performance against Adelaide, playing against a team that lost by nearly 7 goals the previous week, at home ... yes there was only going to be one result. Another match that should have/could have been won ... and it wasn’t. Once again the side failed to turn up in the first quarter, and it was obvious from the first ten minutes that Melbourne weren’t playing serious committed football. It was fortunate that North couldn’t kick straight with 13 scor
  14. A number of commentators were calling Melbourne's win over Adelaide "season-defining" and I wish that were true but the reality is that our season to date has been defined by other things, such as injuries, illness and suspensions to important players, slow starts to games, narrow losses and defeats snatched from the jaws of victory. I don't really like the expression "season-defining" and I would prefer that it be confined to the context of a single win in September but if it must be used then it should apply to the day when the club finally shows that it can perform consistently as it

  16. TO THE SWORD by The Oracle There was a time when a seven goal first quarter haul against the Demons would be enough to spell doom and disaster - a defeat of in excess of ten goals and perhaps more than 100 points. Similarly, if the skipper failed to get his hands on ball for an effective disposal in the first quarter. That is what happened to Melbourne against North Melbourne in their Round 19 game - it simply was not in the contest in the opening term and trailed by 28 points conceding nine scoring shots to one (a goal to Chris Dawes) by time on. Viv Michie then missed everything from 35 me

  18. Get up boys, it's unlikely but who knows ... we need Hogan to kick a bag which is entirely possible, I'm excited to watch them after last week ... keeping in mind that after the way we played last week not to expect too much this week ... come on dees:-)
  19. INCONSISTENT BASTERDS by JVM Melbourne and North Melbourne are two teams whose form during the 2015 season is regarded by all and sundry as extremely inconsistent. Their highs and their lows over the year so far have been well documented and fans of both clubs have been heard leaving some of their games muttering the words "inconsistent basterds" as an apt description of the cause of their frustrations. On this basis, one might think it would be a difficult task to select the winner of this week's contest at the MCG and yet the Kangaroos are rightly firm favourites with the pundits to win the
