  1. This is the last chance saloon if we want to be a significant player in 2019. Round 9 West Coast v Melbourne Friday 17 May, 6.10pm AWST Optus Stadium 3.55pm: All gates open As an away game, Melbourne Members cannot gain access to the match without a valid ticket. Tickets to the match can be purchased via Ticketmaster. Public transport Optus Stadium is located in proximity to the Perth Stadium train station. The precinct is also serviced by multiple bus routes. Plan your trip to the match using Transperth's Journey Planner.
  2. The Norwegian Expressionist artist Edvard Munch painted a number of versions of his famous work “Scream” and, every time my mind goes back to last year’s Preliminary Final at Optus Stadium between Melbourne and the West Coast Eagles, each and every one of them reverberates through my mind as if my head is being pummeled by a sledgehammer. When I think of that half time scoreboard from that match showing West Coast at 10.9.69 to Melbourne 0.6.6, I feel like the man standing by the railing, hands cupping his ears in horror at the disaster unfolding at the place where, only a matter of week

  4. MATHEMATICAL POSSIBILITY by Whispering Jack For well over a decade, Melbourne fans have been sitting back at various times during the football season (more often than not in the early parts), contemplating the AFL ladder and pondering on the mathematical possibilities available to their team of making the finals or winning the premiership. Rarely have they been equally or better placed than the others except when this particular event was taking place at the very beginning of the year or possibly after a the opening round of the season. This week, at long last, things are different.
  5. NO CONTEST by George On The Outer This was the first finals series in which the Melbourne Football Club has participated for a dozen years and its first Preliminary Final for 18. The club got here in 2018 because it built its reputation on contest, but in the end the game against West Coast was no contest as the Eagles ran out winners by over ten goals. The match itself was really over by quarter time, as the young Demons were simply swamped by a side that was bigger, stronger and ultimately had more intent on achieving its goal. The game, while disappointing from an outcome pe

  9. THE MONKEY, THE MONGOOSE AND CHRISTMAS EVE by George on The Outer After 12 years the Demons have finally made it to September action again, by beating West Coast in Perth. At the same time, they removed the Media Monkey of “they haven’t beaten anyone in the eight” saga. Our own Ethan Tremblay has now had his childhood dreams restored and perhaps he will get his Mongoose still in this prediction ... For those who didn’t see the exchange it went something like this: Petraccattack: Tomorrow we beat the Eagles and book our first finals berth since 2006. It feels like Xmas

  11. The news that Jesse Hogan is out of contention to play with the Demons until 2019 after suffering a foot injury during their nine-point loss to the Swans at the MCG last Sunday might have sent feelings of shock and aware through the community of Demon supporters but I’m not overly concerned about the fact that the club’s key forward will be sidelined for the rest of the season. The reason why is that Melbourne seems to produce its best wins without Hogan in the team. There were the big breakthrough wins over Geelong and Hawthorn in 2015 and 2016 respectively and last year, it overcame top
  12. No longer can Demon fans keep a lid on it after a dramatic dying seconds of the game win against West Coast in W.A. After four consecutive wins, the lid is has well and truly blown off as a result of one of the gutsiest performances seen by this club in decades. No Watts, no Jones, no Hogan a ruckman back after 10 weeks away, on-field injuries to Jeff Garlett, Mitch Hannan, Christian Salem and Jack Viney with Jayden Hunt barely able to run, a hostile biased crowd and a six day break. It all mattered nothing as the Demons pulled a victory out of the fires of adversity. Let’s n
  13. What do we think? I picked us. I'm a bit nervous but less so than other weeks. No idea why. Is it the narrow subiaco that I think suits our game plan? Is it our 100% interstate record? Regardless its hard to believe we are actually a chance, especially without Watts and Jones. Maybe I'm delusional?
  14. HIGH PRESSURE SYSTEMS by Whispering Jack The two sides facing off against each other this Saturday night in the west have a number of things in common if their most recent games are any guide. In Round 13, they both beat highly fancied opposition teams using relentless pressure applied throughout their respective contests. Their players swarmed around opponents and worked together, corralling them and tackling strongly to force submission. At the end of their games, the West Coast Eagles were back on the winning list with a victory over third placed Geelong while Melbourne had thrashed th

  17. HOW THE WEST WAS ALMOST WON by George on the Outer In the old Cowboy and Indian movies of the Wild West, the good guys usually won (well ... except for George Armstrong Custer). When the Demons went west to meet the Eagles at their home ground, they had reason to think they were on the side of the good. True. the baddies had beaten them every single time they met since just after the turn of the century in 2002 but it was time for good to prevail. However, like the 7th Cavalry, Melbourne found a way to lose again although, fortunately, unlike the outcome at Little Bighorn, it wasn
