Game Chat – Melbourne v Collingwood

Venue: MCG at 3:20pm AEST

R12, 2016, Melbourne 16.8 (104) d Collingwood 8.10 (58) at the MCG
R4, 2016, Melbourne 16.6 (102) d Collingwood 9.13 (67) at the MCG
R18, 2015, Melbourne 13.13 (91) d Collingwood 7.12 (54) at the MCG
R10, 2015, Collingwood 17.8 (110) d Melbourne 13.7 (85) at the MCG
R12, 2014, Collingwood 8.13 (61) d Melbourne 3.10 (28) at the MCG

Game notes: This is a season-defining clash for both sides with a position in the top-eight potentially up for grabs. With plenty on the line, the annual Queen’s Birthday blockbuster shapes as the match of the round. Following its bye, Melbourne will be looking to continue the good form it displayed in Alice Springs against Gold Coast. The likely inclusion of Christian Salem, after serving his one-game suspension, will add a touch of class to the Demons’ backline. Collingwood has resuscitated its season on the back of three-straight victories against Hawthorn, the Brisbane Lions and Fremantle. However, injuries to key personnel including Jamie Elliott (ankle), Daniel Wells (calf) and Tyson Goldsack (shoulder) are big blows. The Magpies’ midfielders, in particular Scott Pendlebury, Adam Treloar and Taylor Adams, have been central figures in the club’s revival. With Nathan Jones and Clayton Oliver primed, all three will need to produce their best footy to engineer a Collingwood win.

Mottsy’s Tip: Melbourne by 20 points.

  1. Who to make captain? Can’t bloody decide.
    Thumbs up- Trelor
    Thumbs down- Adams

    Comment for Oliver
    Cheers guys


  2. Community, had a bit of a sleepless night thinking about weather to take Mitchell’s 113 (TU) or go with Treloar (TD) as C,

    The Burbler


    1. As your opponent this round can i suggest an alternate strategy. Upgrade Treloar to Levi Greenwood. Apparently he’s a big monarchist and will rise for the occasion. Better put the C on him BB. 😉


          1. Yeah I wanted to have a relatively stress free afternoon. Still a tight call at HT. Maybe your Grrenwood call wasn’t so far fetched


  3. Would you rather
    Option 1 1382 with hibbered WHE and treloar (c) – ( 19 playing and lowest score of 45 removed)
    Option 2 1284 Adams petrecca WHE Oliver (c) ( 20playing and lowest scores of 45 and 45 removed )

      1. Sounds like Hogan misses another 2 through surgery as a minimum.

        Way too late to get on now but would have been good in hindsight.

        Might also be useful for next year. I can see a Hogan/Pedersen forward line having a lot of merit for the Dees, even if it may not be SC relevant.

  7. Since halftime, the Pies have played as bad as any team this year
    The bloke keeping the clanger count must be exhausted


  8. Pendles for c looks like a mistake. But at least it will be a common one. Shoulda gone vc on Kreuzer.


  9. Hibberds decided 3 quarters is enough and taken the last quarter off. Hasn’t scored yet this quarter. Was on track for 2000 with WHE, Adams, Treloar C and Hibberd. Well WHE and Adams have different ideas i guess.

    Thank goodness im trading WHE. Trading one yo yo scorer to yeo yo !


      1. Some of the free shots Melbourne hand on goal due to free kicks. I’ve never felt more robbed walking out of a game.


        1. It’s about bloody time, for us we get robbed on the field, off it and it seems even when the game of footy aint being played. Well thats how i feel as a Melbourne supporter. And to Jeremy Howe suck hard on that 4 game losing streak you hold since crossing to the Filth. Apologies 4 the negative comments. But not you Howe, choke on it.


  10. Can’t wait for this game on replay cable here tomorrow morning!

    Just got off the phone with my bro Andy over there in Australia who was at the game. I told him not to spoil too much as I wanted to watch the game unfold (even though I kmow the result and am super pumped up for the big W :))

    He mentioned Clayton Oliver’s roving work in the second half was huge and that Petracca won the medal!

    As an owner of Oliver my friend was feeding me some welcome news. 107 from the boy. He has been fantastic! Great for my SC game and great for the Dees!

    Can’t wait to watch the QBDay Clash in the morning 🙂
