WELCOME TO DEMONLAND - PAUL ROOS

Recommended Posts

'left the door ajar'

sounds a lot better than that for mine, sounds like he is saying yep I'll take it on just make sure there is plenty of $$$$$$$

"In some ways it's the great coaching challenge"

That's it Roosy, that's the angle

this is brilliant, for once we might get somebody bona fide with serious runs on the board around the place

"The thought of coaching Melbourne doesn't scare me, not the club itself or any other club," he said.

"In some ways it's the great coaching challenge, but you have got to be thinking like a coach to take it on if you are going to do that role."

Buckle up folks.

So everything else the HUN writes is crap but this isn't?

I would dance the happy dance if we got him but I don't think it will happen.

Clarkson is where we should be sending our dollars.

He is quoting Roos in the article. Don't think it's legal to put quotes unless it's verbatim so would say it's fairly solid.

Ok, so they are quoting Roo's... Fair Play

I'm gun shy of getting my hopes up, also I do have a thoughts that if Neelds hard line approach didn't work how will Roo's, Clarkso, Eade or Choc Willams meant to?

You can only hope they scare the sh!t out of the players and get some results...

Either way I'm pretty tired... I miss footy, I miss not getting flogged week in week out... But still I can't help but think it wasn't Neelds fault it was the players.

Paul Roo's doesn't have a hard line approach, he builds characters and then it's up to them to work for him.

Roo's instills the qualities in individuals, qualities that are necessary to succeed.

Really impressive listening to Roo's on On the Couch.

As a commentator I can't stand Roo's - especially in Sydney games, but as a football mind and a bloke who knows organizations and how to build successful organizations, Roo's knows his stuff.

Malcolm Blight anyone? We have to be sure he is in this 100 per cent. Fortunately, Roos says as much himself in those quotes.

It's Roos or Clarkson for mine at a mill a year.

Let's go. I have been waiting for this since '73 when RDB went to Nought.

It's our time. The AFL WANT IT. It's time for the Northern Stand to roar again.

Sooooo more chance of getting a contracted coach shooting for a premiership whose agent has said "no way", than a former coach working part time in the media who seems open to it?

Hmmmmmm......

If Roos coaches again it won't be about money. It would be about whether the challenge gets him excited & whether he is motivated or interested in coaching full time, the effect on his life etc. The club will have to sort itself off the field if we are any hope. One thing is for sure the club needs to find something that it aspires to or wants to represent because at the moment the club doesn't really have a football philosophy or identity. Roos would definitely bring this as he did at Sydney.

Really!! Neeld has nearly the worst record in history. Surely it's up to him to get the players motivated. From the start he treated them like shite. It's impossible for them to ignore their fellow players being humiliated in front of the group without them realising this could not only happen to them at any minute but also how to respect the coach doing it. His first game against Brisbane he gave steph Martin a bake at half time that none of the players had ever seen. There has been a lot of humiliation of individual players in front of the group including vision on the field. He is delusional or lying.

FMD. Roos has stated categorically that he is not interested in coaching repeatedly.

I guess the more he is asked this the more it stirs the simple minded that he must be interested.

And the wing nuts that claim "every man has his price" seem to forget that we are going cap in hand to the AFL for money.

We can't pay stupid sums for a coach and money alone does not guarantee an outcome.

Hate him on TV, love to have him in the coaches box.

Interesting to hear Eade say he would consider the job and I would be surprised if Mark Williams wasn't interested.

Not long ago the "experts" on radio were saying "who would even want to coach Melbourne?"

Not long ago the "experts" and the "naysayers" were also saying that nobody would want to take the CEO's job and suddenly Peter Jackson emerged with enthusiasm about "taking on the challenge". The same will happen with the coach's job for precisely the same reason. It will be well paid and a challenge that those who are brave enough will dare to take on.

As far as Roos is concerned however, the issue is not so much one of taking on the challenge but rather, the wife and family. Heard she's not keen on a move to Melbourne (the city) for personal reasons and that she will therefore prevail.

The scenario should make for some interesting but contrived discussion on On the Couch in the coming months.

    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

    It’s a crying shame that we happen to be playing against the resurgent St Kilda just as they have managed to overcome a rotten patch of form with an upsurge in momentum resulting from the sacking of its coach and the appointment of a new one.    The Saints had a purple patch at the start of the season winning four of their first five games (including the one against the sloppy and sluggish Demons in Round 5) before collapsing into the sink hole that led to them parting ways with coach Alan
