If Frost isn't cemented in our best 22 by now Goodwin can GAGF.
I told my 2 year-old-about-to-be-3 that his birthday is cancelled last night as it's the first weeks of the finals.Should find out next week.
Having my birthday party/Fathers Day at the Olive At Loch (Max's mums bakery) either on that Saturday or Sunday and can't confirm the date with my family until the finals fixture is released.
Don't want it to clash with a final.
I completely agree with the sentiment regarding WCE supporters at home. Insufferable is the exact word I would use to describe them. Having said that the booing of the campaigners after the game yesterday actually made it sweeter in my books. I actually said "suffer in ya jocks" out loud!I'll be honest, I couldn't watch the last 10 minutes. West Coast fans were driving me insane - turn it back on after we win to see vision of boys celebrating and I see ******* LeCras grappling with Jetta by the collar. Having lived in both Perth and Adelaide I can honestly attest to Crows and Eagles fans being easily the most oxygen-deprived, potentially lobotomised supporters in the league (not all obviously, but at home they are insufferable).
Back to the game - it was great that our boys showed poise particularly when West Coast snatched the lead from us in the last qtr. We have classy players, they just need the belief to do it for 4 quarter and particularly in the clinches when the game is there to won.
Max Gawn - amazing. Having a dominant ruckman in the league, simply cannot overstate his value.
Salem - I think might finally be proving his worth. Slick and versatile
Great to see Harmes' progress too
Melksham's been a terrific recruit for us. Him and Hibberd perhaps go some way to even the Essendon trade ledger (Moorcroft, Heffernan)
Great result, but as I've said all along, finals should be a bare minimum. Let's hope we bring the same intensity and there's no reason we can't win a couple
How many games mate? Must have been close to our Succesfull era in the VfLBeaten by a harder, hungrier team congrats.
What a gem u have in Max Gawn. With out a doubt the best and most dominant ruck in the league. Absolute beast.
Always had a soft spot for u mob (my grandfather played for u back in the day) and think u will go deep in September if u bring that same intensity every game.
Bloody hell mate, not sure if you know much about Melbourne's history but he's played with Norm Smith, Fred Fanning, Allan La Fontaine and Don Cordner and coached by checker Hughes.Not sure mate. Was war times when he got posted in Melbourne before being shipped out.
I did on the first page of this thread
I was so ecstatic that, that came out**** YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!@#@#$$$^%&*&*(*(!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!))))))!)!)!)
I think it was Brayshaw and Salem who traded kicks for 30 seconds before going long down the line. Game management yo.Goodwin and the players speak about learning from past games, and the little things add up to moments and the moments add up to big moments.
Watching the last 5 minutes just now, we had 4 smothers, players were desperate to not let the ball spill out, halved aerial contests. I loved Lewis' mark in the back 50, we had 5 kick-marks in a row took 45 seconds off the clock and slowed the game down.
Don’t know to much I’m afraid. Remember as a kid he would say he played with some of the greats. Didn’t really appreciate it then. The older u get the more u understand it I suppose.Bloody hell mate, not sure if you know much about Melbourne's history but he's played with Norm Smith, Fred Fanning, Allan La Fontaine and Don Cordner and coached by checker Hughes.
Team of the century players
The lead up to Melksham's goal out the back in the goal square, salem perfect checked kick no panic long bomb, gus to Fritsch, long to hannan/kent? and the melks out the back.I think it was Brayshaw and Salem who traded kicks for 30 seconds before going long down the line. Game management yo.
Back in the 40s and 50s those were the biggest names in the VFL and are part of the fabric of our history. Pretty cool mate.Don’t know to much I’m afraid. Remember as a kid he would say he played with some of the greats. Didn’t really appreciate it then. The older u get the more u understand it I suppose.
Anyway wrong thread for this. Well done again and good luck in finals.
That's ok I've been eating Brayshaw humble all season,Mate I am gorging myself on humble pie when it comes to Frost and Harmes, and I might need to order another one for Vanders
