  1. SOCCER TO ME by JVM I was watching Australia’s World Cup hopes sink late the other night when it’s soccer team lived up to its usual standards of hard work and endeavour without the ability to finish off and gain the full measure of reward for effort. All of us know that the Aussies are minnows in the world game and they have been pushing uphill since the very start of their campaign some three years ago but in the end, the composure was not there and the ability to finish was missing in Russia. I think the same thing might apply to the Melbourne Football Club as it goes about its ow
  2. WELCOME BACK MFCSS by George on the Outer Yes folks, it’s back ... the ever present syndrome that afflicts supporters of the Melbourne Football Club. Playing in a game against St Kilda which had managed a mere two wins to date this season, with other results falling to its advantage and the chance to lock in a final eight position by a clear game and percentage, the Demons stuffed it again! Are we to see a repeat of last year, when we fell at the final hurdle? For those who suffer from the MFCSS, it is sure looking that way. Despite a three goal lead early in th

  5. Melbourne fans were left with a feeling of holding a three quarters full glass in their hands after their team’s 26 point win over St Kilda in their second JLT Community Series match up last night. Their team produced some stylish and scintillating football in the first, second and final terms in front of 4,567 fans at Casey Fields but it was the complete fade out in what is often described as the “premiership quarter” that left some of them with worries about the season ahead. Yes, it was only a practice match but this was a team that missed the finals last year by a slim percen
  6. MOJO LOST by Whispering Jack Has Melbourne peaked too early again this year? Last year, after displaying their best football for years with wins against Hawthorn by 29 points at the MCG in Round 20 and Port Adelaide by 40 points at the Adelaide Oval in Round 21, the Demons' form dropped away dramatically. With ten wins under their belt, they needed to win the remaining two matches of the season to have a chance of making the finals. The first of those games was against lowly Carlton which was on a long losing streak and they lost that and their finals aspirations, doing so without ra
  7. SOMETHING IN THE AIR by George on the Outer Walking away from the MCG after a good win against a challenging St Kilda, there was a smell that Melbourne supporters have not experienced for over ten years. It is the smell of September; that smell of spring in the air as the days get longer and the promise of something better to come. But in recognition of the evenness of the competition there were so many times that the Demons needed to dig deep, and none more so than in the final quarter when the Saints had whittled away at an over seven goal lead, to get within four points. In

In the past, a Melbourne side would have folded. I
  9. Whatever happens today, I think it's fair comment that come the end of the game, Simon Goodwin can say, "I did it my way".

  11. Was tonights game (North v Doggies) a comedy of errors or what? I have never seen so many unforced turnovers in 1 game ever. They won't be up there for long bringing this rubbish time for us to swoop?
  12. THE NEW REALITY by Whispering Jack Melbourne has not beaten St Kilda in an AFL premiership match since the 2006 Elimination Final when it recorded a three goal victory at the MCG. The only current player to take part in that game was current skipper Nathan Jones who was taking part in only his 7th AFL game. As was befitting of his young age and inexperience, Jones' role that nigh was modest - he picked up a mere nine touches of the footy. On Saturday, he will play his 207th game for the club and is expected to make a much bigger contribution and to play in a winning team against the Saint
  13. Turn up to Etihad we were told. It’s our home away from home ... Our home away from home! And, yes the fans did exactly that ... 27K at a home game at Etihad. Unheard of. Buy your memberships. Let’s break the record ... 37,500 Members ... Unheard of. The players and coaches turning up to match the enthusiasm exhibited by the fans ... Unheard of. Once again the opportunity to truly cement the future of the club, in both the short and the long term was thrown away by a half interested team and a simply incompetent coaching group. The excuse o

  15. They've been saying it's a mad, mad world for a long time but I wonder sometimes about what goes on in the mind of the person who prepares the AFL draw. Take today for instance. Melbourne fans are being implored to turn up for what is their team's home game against St Kilda at Etihad Stadium in the Docklands which is the home ground of the Saints. Go figure? The main thing is that the Demons have shrugged off the old hoodoo which this ground once presented and they even beat the Saints there last month, albeit in a NAB Challenge match. So we're now aiming for a "thre

  17. Melbourne was expected to beat St Kilda in their return game at the MCG against the team that had stolen victory in the dying moments when they met a month or so earlier.
