Sack Bailey

Recommended Posts

I can tell you Newton's niche.

And the game has changed since Bate was drafted. Just ask Brock McLean about that.

Geez choco you must have burnt a hole in your keyboard with all your recent apologist posts.

Do you work for the MFC?

You might like to learn English. It's just that I'm guessing you have English characters on your keyboard, so it might be easier to learn the language.

Your post said that 7 - 8 players out is an excuse. You meant to say it's a reason, nit an excuse.

No need to call people [censored].

Agree 100% Choko. Deemort, keep the "[censored]" word off your keyboard or go and join a Collingwood or Port Adelaide forum where foul abuse is acceptable. Some people on this forum may have children with disabilities. You might be passionate about the Dees and your opinions and that is great, but there is line that should not be crossed. You crossed it.

For so many years this club has asked us for things money, support while rebuilding etc. But now its time they give us something back. A NEW COACH!

A coach that can teach pressure, skill (yes players need to be taught those things) etc. Oh and most importantly have a game plan that works.

Know matter what people say we have a game plan it is just very poor. I know we have a massive injury list but that doesn't stop us from attacking the

ball hard and applying pressure. Instead we choose to defend from the opening bounce. WOW exciting stuff dees.

I have not missed a game in Victoria since 2000 but to be honest with you im losing the passion to support this club

Funny when words come back to haunt :

Recently a certain Coach was heard to invoke of his charges , to be Bold, to be Brave !!!

Shame he wan'ts so convinced himself as to set a team to win, instead of containing a loss !!

Ah yes.,.....Bold, Brave stuff that !!! :mellow:

Without reading the thread:

I cannot stand Bailey's matchday coaching. At times it's deplorable.

Starting last night with a loose man in defence was awful. I cannot see any reason why anyone would do this. Putting a player behind the ball does not help us. We have an undersized forward line. How does giving Carlton a spare man help us score? It has never, ever worked for us, but Bailey managed to take it to another level by starting the game with it. We were doomed from the get go.

Absolutely despicable.

Yep, and just 1 week after he came out and said we had to be "bold". :rolleyes:

Strauss, Bennell, Jetta

Could have got one of McKernan, Trengove, Hannebury, Ballantyne, Zaharakis, Suban, Shiels instead of Bennell.

Rory Sloane or Taylor Hunt or Rockliff for Jetta

We stuffed up in 2008. Too many soft lazy players.

Could have, should have, would have ... the value of hindsight. Sorry the draft process does not work like that.

If you try to judge players after 1-2 years you do yourself no favours. I remember not that long ago people in this very forum where screaming for Slyvia and Martins head, some even wanted to trade players like Jamar & Frawley ... imagine if we didn't have them last night.

All players improve at different rates. IMHO its unfair to judge players until they have played or if they do play 100 games.

Because you keep bleating that Bailey is gone, then he must be?

A handful of idiots that can't see what's really going on isn't indicative of a tangible change.

Last night was the first time I've been really critical of Bailey's coaching. Staring Watts as loose man in defence said it all from the get go.

I'm not asking for Bailey's head right now but unless he can somehow manage to squeeze out at least another 5 wins this year then I reckon he's gone!

As for any potential coaches for next year and beyond, the top 5 people on my list in order would be.

1. Malthouse

2. Roos

3. Clarkson

4. Viney

5. Eade

For the last time, the game plan is only as good as the team who are asked to execute it.

Good point, even the central point. Wasted around here though ...

Long time reader but haven't yet posted. Until now.

I have always been a supporter of Bailey and quick to defend his time as coach. When he came to the club there was a load of dead wood he had to clear out and under the current processes in place, this was not something that could happen quickly. I wasn't one who really believed we were going to seriously challenge the top 8 this year let alone the top 4 like some had us pegged. Thought we would continue to slowly make further progress, some up's and downs, but very competitive and a genuine chance to win any game we played.

Unfortunately as is clear for all to see, we have not made progress at all and I now for the first time seriously doubting our coach

I don't ask much.

I want our players to be hard at the ball at all times - many are soft as butter

I want our players to be stand up when the going gets tough - we fold like a pack of cards

I want our players to hold there head up high and inspire each other - we drop our heads as if resigned to the fact they can't win

I want our players to believe in themselves, the coaching staff and the club as a whole - body language is disgraceful as is the game plan (seems to change each week).

I want to see some leadership on the ground. At least one player give the guys a rev during the game and demand they come along with them for the ride - we are rudderless.

The thing that really changed my opinion on the coach last night was the interview that Jarrod Rivers gave during the game. He said that all they can do is have a dip and see if they can continue to close Carlton down (or words to that effect).

At the time we were only two to three goals down and while it did look like the floodgates could have opened at any time, I was really looking for a strong statement from one of our leaders. Something to show the supporters they were really looking at winning the game. There just seemed an air of resignation about it.

This is where unfortunately Bailey has now lost me. If the players don't truly believe they can win a game, what hope have we got. It's the coaches job to instil this into the team and motivate the players to greater heights. We seem leaderless on the field. There seems to be a general acceptance to go along with the status quo when we are getting beaten.

I want someone to stand up when we are looking down the barrel and say - come with me boys and we will turn this around. Get tough. Get nasty.

Please show me you really care and really believe in the jumper.

We have two tough one's coming up and I want to be surprised. I want to come away, win or lose, and have my faith in the program restored.

Show me you care. Show me you are resiliant and fight with everything you have. Show me you have pride in the jumper and that this club stands for something that really matters to you.

^ poignant :mellow:

a sad but true account.

Many seem to think its about Bailey per se.. Its not.. Its about the doldrums our playing group finds itself in.

Id love Bailey to be successful and instrumental, if we were to be triumphant. But we languish in the mire in the same we we have since,... well, since.,... I can remember .

    COOKED by The Oracle

    I can vividly remember when the Demons ventured onto Blundstone Arena for the first time in early 2016 only to lose to the Kangaroos by 20.11.131 to 21.10.136.    Melbourne was then a team on the up and up: young, enthusiastic and bold. It gave up a huge quarter time deficit after kicking against a strong wind but made that up by half time and fell dramatically short after an exciting high scoring affair.  The team lost no fans that day - they were willing to take the game on and attac

    HELP by KC rom Casey

    The Casey Demons finished off their home and away season against Frankston at Skybus Stadium on Sunday with a narrow, unconvincing 6-point victory that left the door slightly open for a top eight berth when the VFL finals begin in a fortnight’s time. While sunny skies prevailed over Frankston in the morning, the skies became overcast by noon and heavy waves pounded the bay nearby as the rains came in to greet the players as the game started. And conditions stayed dark and dreary for the rem

    THANKS BUT NO THANKS by George on the Outer

    Thanks, but no thanks! In a round where the club was supposed to thank their fans for the support during the year, the Melbourne Football Club chose to do otherwise with a 53 point loss to a team that sat 15th on the ladder.  Don’t give us cheap jumpers that can’t be sold in the Demon shop.  Don’t give us vouchers to shop there, give us something on the field, which is why we come to the football in the first place. It was a disgraceful performance, which started with a disgracefu

    SLEEP OUT AT THE MCG by The Oracle

    Around about 12 months ago Melbourne and Sydney fought out an epic battle between two top eight teams fighting for the best possible ladder position in the lead up to the finals. The Swans triumphed by 9 points at the MCG after the Demons came back from five goals down at three quarter time. But for its poor kicking for goal, Melbourne might well have won the game and finished in the top four. Who knows what might then have happened for the club in September? As a consequence, the person re

    A LITTLE RAY OF SUNSHINE by KC from Casey

    Two clubs that have been hard hit by injury recently took part in a dour battle under dark clouds and, with intermittent showers falling, it wasn’t a pretty game at Victoria Park on Sunday. Despite all that, the Casey Demons added a little ray of sunshine to their day to get the job done over a "traditional" rival with a 15 point victory over Collingwood VFL that breathed life back into their season. There were a few highlights at the ground that in past days has seen many titanic batt

    THE RETRO ROUND by George on the Outer

    We have seen it all before… Yes, a wonderful idea to showcase what used to be in football.  Big crowds, umpires who knew how to apply the rules and not opinions, high marks, skilful players. But for the Melbourne supporters their retro is what it has been like for the past 10 years. Losing games, end on end, year after year.  Opportunities squandered in front of goal. VFL standard players running around at the MCG. Just more of the same, and the game against Collingwood was no ex

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    Thanks to Demonlanders for their input into this week’s preview. Ralphius Maximus is short and bittersweet: We'll crack in at the bounce to create a contest, win our share of the ball, butcher the forward movement and get scored on easily from the intercepts. Not that hard to predict. Big Demon says: Unfortunately Collingwood will win because they have a lot more to play for. We will be good in parts but really the season is well over so we will have to put up with those bell

    WHAT, NO BLOOD? by George on the Outer

    The feeling when turning up to the MCG on a Saturday night to play a top four side in Richmond, while the Melbourne sits cemented in close proximity to the bottom of the table is like attending the Colosseum in Ancient Roman times. The expectation is that a bloodbath is about to occur. There are 100,000 Richmond members and 50,000 Melbourne members, and despite the fact that it turned out to be a wet night after half-time, a crowd of only 37K bothered to turn up. That should never have happ

    A MAN’S ERRAND by KC from Casey

    A young and undermanned Casey Demons were sent out on Saturday to the Swinburne Centre in the shadows of the MCG on a man’s errand against a very experienced Richmond VFL combination which is the clear ladder leader and fielded no less than 18 AFL listed players. It was expected to be a rout and the Tigers made easy work of it in the early stages when they held a 26 point lead by quarter time. To their credit however, the Demons weathered the storm and kept their opponents within the range

    THAT’S FOOTBALL by Whispering Jack

    As the season rolls on towards the finals and the football world witnesses the aftermath of the sacking of the league’s unsuccessful coaches, it’s almost  inevitable that the spotlight will turn firmly upon the complete and utter failure of season 2019 - the Melbourne Football Club.  For a team that finished in fourth place last year and was heavily touted as a premiership contender, the fall from grace has been dramatic. As things stand, the Demons look certain to finish 13 places down on

    THE MOMENT OF TRUTH IS COMING by KC from Casey

    At half time in Sunday’s game at Trevor Barker Beach Oval, things weren’t looking too flash for the flailing finals prospects of the Casey Demons. Key forward Sam Weideman had suffered a concussion in his first contest and, with a few exceptions, the team was playing like a rabble rather than a finals contender. The Demons were 23 points in arrears to the Zebras and their season was headed towards oblivion. It was the skipper Mitch White who spurred his team on by word and by deed - he fini

That’s it folks, Melbourne have set a new record for the most turnovers resulting in opposition scores.
