Cunningham is probably best set for the job on Pickett. Maybe its just me but aside from his delivery into forward 50 to set up Papley's goal I didn't think he had a great game. He'll have to be at his best on the weekend.Cunningham has a massive task this week to keep the immensely talented Pickett quiet. I'll back him but Pickett is in a rare vein of form right now.
With Adam Tomlinson hurt, I hope they send McDonald back and bring Weideman in to play forward with Brown. That would mean a lot of positional change for them after having a stable, in-form side for the first 7 weeks. And if Fritsch's suspension is upheld, all the better.
We've played Melbourne very well over the last few years, so I think we're in with a huge shot, particularly if Rampe and Bud are right to play. .
Should be a cracker game with both playing dynamic footy. Win, lose or draw it should be a beauty.Judging by the ticket sales... looks like this will be the match of the round... People will be coming to see this. Sydney vs Melbourne... Just by those 2 names alone I'm not surprised tickets selling out quickly.
If we take a small out for Buddy that ball will come bouncing out of half back so often that we will be down eight goals by half time.That's what I think too.
If he replaces anyone, it should be a smaller player rather than a marking forward. Then again perhaps Sinclair but no way McLean makes way because he is the best overhead mark we have in the squad ATM. He clunked each one & kicked goals from them all, Reid would have marked 1 &/or missed 2.
Disturbing and rather mean.You mean uncle H in bed with his Micky O t-shirt on? Personally, I can't get that image out of my mind fast enough.
Yes McLean is proving to be a pure forward. He does all the right things. Gets to position, takes huge pack grabs. Unlike Sam Reid, who's marks are generally with either a run up or from the side, his vertical. Leap is sensationalThey don't want McLean in the ruck otherwise McDonald for Sinclair is the 2nd easiest choice
I would love to see Buddy, McDonald and McLean all playing as we had 3 talls playing at the start of the year and I think the three of them could stretch Melbourne's defence as May and Lever like to run off players. Not so easy to run off 3 genuinely tall players who can all kick goals and who any of them could be a target going forward.This is a great situation for mcdonald. Deserves a spot this week but unfortunately mcleans forms means it’s unlikely he will get picked and will have to bide his time. This will teach him the importance of holding your spot as there are no guarantees no matter how talented he is. When he does come back he will have a fire underneath him
Agree how good it would be, but will we risk Buddy and use McLean against Gawn?I would love to see Buddy, McDonald and McLean all playing as we had 3 talls playing at the start of the year and I think the three of them could stretch Melbourne's defence as May and Lever like to run off players.

Exactly!If we take a small out for Buddy that ball will come bouncing out of half back so often that we will be down eight goals by half time.
