Each Adelaide player will honour the anniversary of slain AFL coach Phil Walsh in different ways, captain Taylor Walker says.

The Crows play Melbourne on Sunday, exactly one year after Walsh was allegedly murdered by his son.

"He left a massive footprint on the footy club and individuals lives so I'm sure individuals will treat it differently by themselves," Walker told reporters on Monday.

"A lot of water has gone under the bridge, obviously it's 12 months since he passed away.

"But as a footy club we're really happy with where we are at and have got a lot of memories out of it and look forward to, as he said, getting the job done. We'll do it on Sunday."

The Crows will play Melbourne on Walsh's anniversary this Sunday afternoon at the MCG.
