We suck against bottom 6 sides. Fact. Extremely worried here.

Although no T Mac and possibly Gawn will favour us heaps.

As bizarre as it sounds, I think the Dees are a slight sniff, particularly if one of the best players in the league returns for them.

We're 6-1 at Marvel Stadium under Goodwin, and have an average winning margin of 52 points in the last 3 encounters between the two sides.

But when it's all said and done, the Dogs really should be winning this one if they fancy themselves as a finals contender. End of story.

Prob get Gawn, Lever and Jetta back - if we're half accurate from goal kicking perspective could easily win this. The guys like Marvel as well.

Awesome win over the cats, but the Dogs have been terribly inconsistent this year, hope we get them on a down week.

Melbourne will win this.

It will be a close but typically frustrating game that us dogs fans are accustomed too.

I feel we're in with a sniff but I think the Dogs will prove to be too good for us in this one.
I just reckon backline of Lever, May, Jetta, Hibberd etc. might be able to hold them out and keep them to a low enough score that we might be able to kick 12-14 goals from 1,000 inside 50s and get over the line.

You think Melbourne have a chance here and the Bulldogs certainly cannot underestimate them. Despite having a horrible season the Demons have fought hard in most of their games. Melbourne have Gawn and Lever back, will help with their chances for sure.

And a firing inside mid. Carlton had Cripps in the first game, North had Cunnington. How we play Viney will be interesting.
Cripps, Cunnington, Oliver probably the handballing accumulators from the same mould. Unless you are
a rising star winner (Sydney Stack) it pays to give Viney some room for health reasons.

Come on Dogs. Means little for the Dees as their season's done, but would be a great story if the Dogs could sneak in. Don't expect a repeat of 2016 but it would be goos to build towards next year.
Actually means a lot for us mate.

Reckon we will give this a good shake, won’t be surprised if we win, won’t be surprised if we lose. Reckon we are ok at Marvel and have some big inclusions.
