Mark Neeld

Recommended Posts

Until I see him at the Melbourne press conference in a red and blue polo ill treat it as a rumour.

Would be a good choice though, all great coaches need someone to give them a start.

Pendles in 2013, MM as director of football ( tongue in cheek)

You maybe on the ball with what you stated above.Just hope it comes true or at least Pendles comes as captain.

I've got my fingers crossed and will give him as much support as i gave Bailey & Daniher...

My concern is he is untried, and while everyone is saying he has had a good education, so did Bailey...

One thing I did like is apparently one of his strengths is identifying a players good & bad points and working on them, we need as much of that as possible.

define untried ? Mick has :) ( tried him )

Garry Lyon cares about our club.

He came back to our club to help it out, and to help out his mate Jimmy.

Garry Lyon understands the modern game.

Garry Lyon understands the nature of the problems we've had with management and culture.

Garry Lyon will have had a huge input into who we chose as coach.

That is enough for me. Welcome Coach Neeld. I'm really looking forward to the next few years.

the rest of the coaching team could be the exciting ingredients.

My wish list.

Senior Coach: Mark Neeld

Senior Assistant: Dean Laidley

Forward Line Coach: Matthew Lloyd

Midfield Coach: Scott Burns

Back Line Coach: Brady Rawlings

Development Coach: Todd Viney

Innovations Coach: Dave Dunbar

List Managment: Tim Harrington

General Manager of Football Operations: Neil Criag

If that can be our coaching set up next year I'll be very happy!

he won't do anything for the membership and I reckon we're going down the same track as Bailey, not happy about it. I mean Mark Neeld? who the bloody hell is he, he played about 60 games of Footy and is totally untried, I really thought they would get someone with experience but no they go down the same old track, get ready for thrashings next year and us being hounded by the dweebs from other clubs and the media, very frickin' sick of it, seriously thinking about my membership.

I'm glad we dodged Ross Lyon. Even more so watching him today.

If we couldn't land Malthouse, Neeld is from the cutting edge school, and if rumours are true and we've snagged Neil Craig as well, then there's the experienced senior coach and we've scored the best of both worlds.

I'm slightly underwhelmed but optimistic with Neeld, but the rest of the coaching team could be the exciting ingredients.

I am surprised nobody took me up on my last post 11/9 when i said that a certain man that comes into my shop on a regular bases has a mate who is heavily involved in the mfc.

He told me that Scully had agreed to a 5mil / 5 year deal to go to the gws a month before ox said it on SEN.

Then he told me that we where after Clarko many weeks before it came out in the media

Then about one month ago he told me that we have our man in Mark Neeld .

we have a mole in the MFC.

I agree with Whispering Jack it makes you wonder if this whole thing is a show

From now on every time this bloke comes into my shop i will hound him for the latest news concerning the MFC then i will do a Mike Sheahan and post it saying you heard it first on demonland write it down.

I put $100 on him @ $21 after I read your post (if it makes you feel any better)... Bring on the announcement... Then the $2100 will go straight onto juicy odds of us making the eight next year... Easy money!

Harden up Dave....Chris & Brad Scott were untried last year.

Have a look at Neeld's CV....Would you prefer Laidley or Eade???

Anyone complaining, suck it up quick and give this guy all our support.

Couldn't attract clarkson, malthouse etc, other tried coaches not up to it, so got best available untried so I'm happy. Everyone speaks of him very highly.

Kinda funny how some folk think ( or dont ) Down the road the current Premiers and likely ones for this year will be elevating an assitant to their senior role for 2012 onwards.. They seem more than happy with that.

At MFC were about to elevate another Collingwood assistant to the senior role and people are running around as though the sky is falling.

Im not sure I see the "obvious; disparency :rolleyes:

BB i think the point by some posters me included are making is that when this process started the Dees came out and said we want a senior experienced coach.

When you hear that and then get an appointment of another untired coach this is where the frustration comes from for me anyway.

Great move.

BTW, of the 8 teams in finals this year, 7 of them have untried coaches. Of the past 10 or so premierships, almost ALL of them have been won by first-time coaches. (Malthouse and Matthews the only exceptions)

I'll only say this once - time for all demon supporters to get behind the new coach and the inevitable new assistants - time to move on to a new and successful future! No more negativity. United we stand for the red and the blue!

Agreed, although Craig seems a little senile.

Did you see when he took that DVD to that press conference to highlight how "hard" the Crows were? It was one of the best laughs I've had all year. Completely bizarre to even do it, and every 'contest' in the package was just a run of the mill average contest, nothing at all hard about them. I think he has always been a little mental, if it's true that he's coming to us, at least I might get a laugh if we have yet another [censored] poor season.

I don't understand the "untried" argument. Can't see how this is any more risky than, say, Laidley or Eade who have coached at the top level without achieving the ultimate success.

Not a bad list TD, but we also need someone who studies opposition clubs and players all year round, and the game day tactics of opposition clubs.

Assuming it's Mark Neeld I'll give him until about round 14 or 15 next year to turn things around .

1 - Lose our bruise free style of play .

2 - Forward press working well .

3 - Win games .

My only concern is are we going to play Boundary line footy ?

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2019

    PART ONE - OVERTURE  I have a disclaimer at the outset. I’m not a fan of the races - be they horses or motors of any kind. Once the final siren sounds on the football season, I find the month or so that follows and corresponds roughly with the Spring Racing Carnival to be the most boring time of the year for sports fans. You turn on the radio and you’re confronted by the monotonous drone of a self-proclaimed racing expert or by the nasally twang of an ex-jockey banging on about the equine p

    CHANGES 2019 by The Oracle

    PART 1 - IT’S A LITTLE MORE COMPLICATED THIS TIME This year’s free agency, trade and draft period will see the usual drama and upheaval as the AFL’s 18 clubs seek to better their lists in order to challenge for finals and possibly premiership honours. Long before the final siren sounded on the season just over a week ago, the maneuvering was under way with player agents and clubs discussing possible player movements and in some cases, deals had already been done.  Yesterday, the r

    HOW FAR SOUTH? by George on the Outer

    It was appropriate that Melbourne was playing its last game of season 2019 in Hobart.  After all, how much further south could the team go? And much as it has done in many of the previous 22 games, the side managed to extract a loss from a winning position by simply giving the ball back to the opposition time and time again. In fact, they gave it back to the opposition to the tune of 53 points from turnovers while, by way of contrast North Melbourne contributed  only 17 points to their oppo

    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

    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
