List Updates by Goodwin

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Looks like we will get a rundown on players for the next few weeks.  Today Baker to Bugg http://www.melbournefc.com.au/news/2018-01-04/list-update-baker-to-bugg

Its interesting to get the coaches of view of player progress.

Some extracts that caught my eye:

Goodwin: Oskar Baker  has demonstrated some elite fundamentals, from a kicking perspective within our program.

I like the sound of the elite kicking - just what we need.

Goodwin:  Harley Balic has been outstanding at training. He won one of our training ‘player of the week’ awards.

I wouldn't be surprised if he got a game earlier than later.  (Interesting to know we have 'player of the week' award for training).

Goodwin:  Angus Brayshaw is starting to emerge within the group, in terms of his training standards.

Determined young fella - slow and steady will be good for his confidence

Goodwin: Tomas Bugg has been working closely with the forwards.

Sounds like he is keeping his head down working to regain respect.  Admire him for that.

It's understood Jack Watts was a frequent recipient of the above award last pre season.

Ah.. is this the prelude to the "training the house down" thread.

A normal MFC pre season ... hopefully not a portent for a normal MFC season.... Not sure I can take another 2016/2017

To be honest I’d be very disappointed if didn’t win one of these - he has been thrown a lifeline of sorts with a second club after delivering little at his first. Yes he had his challenges at Freo but it’s time for him to clearly justify his place on a AFL list

Hope he does just that

He needs to be out of the blocks early as he only  has a contract for 2018.

What is Mr Goodwin going to say - “player x is a lazy bastard and needs a kick up the bum”! Of course not, but I do hope there is a bit of damning with faint praise when needed as well!

Agree DJ nothing less than 8th place and finals football in 2018 will be considered a pass mark for the Dees IMO.

Ditto OD for a "pass mark" .... for a "good season"  I have 6th and one finals win as my benchmark

Goody.  Boring as bat shid.  

Hope he can coach/motivate/manage.  I'm far from convinced.  

Herald Sun article today reminded me of the absurd scapegoating of Jack Watts.

Jonesy wants a decent write up. Most players are sitting poolside sipping cocktails and our co-captain is doing this during the break.

I like the comment on Frost today.  He, OMac and Lever are working well together.  Sounds like they plan on playing all three of them.

Why do I feel uneasy about this year first 2 games are  real danger games, could easily lose to Geelong also then to a new look Brisbane in Brisbane with super human hodge, be 0 and 2 and everybody will be  baying for blood,  huge doubts will be running through the playing list, I guess these bad feelings won't go away until after we win these two games, but lose and panic stations will be everywhere, please let me be wrong.

Preseason is the most exciting time of year tbh. I always like to imagine the team is setting new fitness records and coming with amazing gameplans to take the comp by storm. Usually by round one i wise up.

Pre season is the house builders bonanza, with houses being trained down throughout the AFL.

If we have a fit and uninjured viney we will win both.
