    Dees coming off their third six day break and a trip to the west with many injuries. Swans by 37. Go Swannies!

    Dees are depleted and we are very close to best 22 on the park, if we are serious with ourselves, we should win this without a close finish drama.

    Stakes have rarely been higher given our precarious ladder position, this is a BIG 8 point game, no excuses, just need a fair run with umpires, I'll spew if they pluck out pathetic in front of goal frees for the Dees like they have against us in the last couple of games.

    Win, win well then focus onto Manuka tomorrow.

    I'd really like this to be a comfortable win! Swans by 22

    It is a tough prospect from so far back to keep the hype and intensity in check for the rest of the season. With this game (due to injury, etc.) there is also the weight of expectation. Melbourne have been playing very well and it will still be our best fielded 22 against their best fielded 22, I just hope we can gain command early and maintain it throughout the match.

    It has been such a strange season in terms of predicting results, particularly if you said in a game that is 5 v 10 on the ladder that 10 would be the favourite. Fingers crossed - go Bloods!

    Hawthorn were depleted too when we played them, so wariness is an ongoing mindset for me.

    Swans by 3. Gary Rohan kicks the final goal with 12 seconds left on the clock just to mess with our heads and hearts.

    The Demons may be depleted, but they are in great form and have great belief....

    This will be a real test for the Swannies.

    Swans by 9

    Beautiful day here in Melbourne (for the moment, anyway). No rain forecast for tonight either. Hoping the boys can bring the manic pressure with Buddy kicking a bag after last weeks woes!

    Who are the Demons going to tag tonight? Joey? Hanners? Lloyd?

    Watching my kids play hockey early but should be there soon after quarter time.

    Alas, the game will be over by then.

    Buddy to score four in the first quarter.

    No rain forecast, but it will be the coldest night of the year so far in Melbourne. It's getting down to 1 degree or so with some suburbs forecast to go below zero and widespread frosts. Bring scarves and beanies and rug up.

    No rain but 8.8 degrees right now, getting down to -1 in the morning. Might get a bit dewy.
