Game Chat – Adelaide vs Melbourne

Written by Thommo on May 22 2021

Where and when: Adelaide Oval, Saturday 22 May at 4:35pm (AEST)

Last time they met: R10, 2020: Melbourne 13.10 (88) def Adelaide 5.7 (37) at Adelaide Oval.

Last five: Melbourne 3 – Adelaide 2

Match Preview: With every Melbourne win the talk of finals action grows and the snow season jokes diminish. The Crows have improved in 2021 but it will take a big effort for them to stop the Demons’ run at 9-straight victories. Unless the Crows’ midfield find a way to overcome the strong combination of Oliver, Petracca, Gawn and friends, it’s hard to see the Adelaide forward line getting enough supply to kick a winning score.

Get excited by a likely 10-straight Dees’ Fans!

Thommo Watch: 

Every week Rory Laird just gets it done. It’s not exciting, but it’s better than a kick in the teeth.Melbourne
Maxy is a stalwart of most teams and if you are doing it right, most teams will own Oliver and perhaps Petracca by season’s end. A few smart teams are also still running James Jordon and picked up Stevie May in recent weeks.
Thommo’s Tip: Melbourne by 30 (tipping record 14/27).

  1. Christian Salem is OUT for Melbourne. Neville Jetta is IN.

    O’Connor & Sparrow are the subs.


  2. Regretting not VC’ing Walsh.

    TU: VC Oliver
    TD: VC Gawn

    Captain will be Grundy tomorrow if needed


  3. Gawn VC looking ok at half time on 87. After Walsh second half today though I will be watching closely in the second half.
    Have A. Brayshaw as loophole tonight if Gawn goes on with it.


  4. Few HT scores for anyone who may be actually around:
    Gawn 87
    Petracca 74
    Oliver 73
    May 59
    Tmac 51

    ROB 45
    Rowe 40
    Berry 36
    Thilthorpe 34
    Murray 20
    Butts 18


  5. Also Tex reported for dangerous tackle on Oliver.
    Should be just a fine. Worst case 1 week. Oliver got up and played reasonably quickly and actually came good and started dominating after a slow start. Maybe Tex did him a favour lol


    1. How unlucky are we! So did my opponent. So, looks like I’ve lost my first H2H this year.


  6. Who says SC isn’t a god…….
