When will the new coach be announced

Recommended Posts

Any word on when they are looking at naming a new coach. I am thinking after the season but over recent season there have been a few who have been named during finals. Does anyone know when this may happen

It really will depend on who we get. If Roos was keen we'd probably announce it as soon as possible. Williams and Eade will have to see out their contracts to the end of this year so those two are likely to be announced at the end of the year.

Lack of action regarding Roos makes me feel that we probably won't get him so it'll be later this year I think. Just my opinion anyway.

Doubt it - if we're lucky enough to land Roos (I agree it's not looking that great) .. then we will hold off announcing it until Round 20ish at the earliest. Would be far too morale-sapping for Craig and the playing group to run out for over half a season knowing that he won't be the coach in 2014.

Yeah I did think about that but I think there's more pro than con in announcing Roos earlier. For example contracts getting signed and the possibility of new players wanting to come to the club as a result (rather than finding out just before trade week). Plus the players must know that it is unlikely that Craig will coach next season.

Roos is waiting for the AFL's reply to Jacksons case. Once he has that information he will make a decision.

Shouldn't be long now..

I'd imagine they would hold off until at the earliest the first week of the finals.

When he has been appointed!

Pretty obvious really.......but seriously, it depends surely on whether he has ongoing commitments through the 2013 season and if his club is in finals. Whatever the pros and ons of Neeld's appointment, the timing of the announcement just may have cost Collingwood a flag, so it can't have all been bad.

We can't interview contracted people till the season is over.

How workable is that? I don't know but I assume fines will be on the way for anyone who breaches that.

Whenever the Tigers and Pies bomb out of the finals might be the start of the end...

I get the impression Roos is genuinely holding off as he is saying publicly, because he wants to see that Jackson will get the right people in all the right places before committing.

That, and he wants the AFL to announce we have received the requisite funding and priority pick he is now campaigning for.

Something has to change, for him to want to coach Melbourne.

And that is for Melbourne to be set up so that the incoming coach can succeed.

As such, there will be no decision until season's end.

Being our number one target, and with other coaches unable to be interviewed until season's end, we'll wait.

Jackson's MO is now to get the rest of the club in top condition.

My problem with this analysis is that I don't think Roos really has the desire to coach again - irrespective of whether the MFC gets its act together or not.

In short, some of his hesitance appears not to relate to MFC's brand at all - it seems to be family and lifestyle related.

How can Jackson or the AFL possibly change those factors?

It's clear he'd be great for this club - everyone knows that (including, it would seem, the AFL) - but there appears to be a fairly high degree of wish thinking going on here.

I also don't see why the new AFL approved Board is required to be in place prior to the new coach being appointed/announced, given that the new coach is also clearly going to be an AFL sanctioned appointment (ie, it appears that the new coach is not going to be a Board decision - rather it'll be a Jackson/AFL appointment).

7 weeks, 3 days and 12 seconds from................….now!

That works out to be 8:21pm the night before The DEES last home game against Freo.

That should give all potential applicants enough time to survey what c**p he has to work with.

Is there any reason why a new coach couldn't start straight away? I expect any potential new coach will have some other employment commitments at the moment, such as Football Manager, Assistant Coach or working in the media. And there may be strategic reasons why a new coach doesn't want to start until the end of this season, But if they could negotiate a release from their current employer, is there anything stopping a new coach taking over now?

What coach? We've had them before and they didn't work so we've gone with an anarchist collective. Each quarter the team will elect a leader who will decide the next quarter's aims and objectives. All pay will go into a common pool, and each finals (under the glorious people's football club revolution) series will be coached by guy with the red and blue Mohawk.

If it's the case that we can't even talk to Williams or Eade because of their contracts to other clubs, then, whether Roos is interested or otherwise, I wouldn't want us to make a decision before the end of the season.

We shouldn't be signing Roos unless and until we've talked to all possible candidates. That means talking to Williams and Eade (amongst others) to see if Roos is indeed the best candidate out there.

Agree. Nothing is going to crystalise until October due to the contracted position of some of the candidates. Even if that weren't the case, Craig deserves to see the season out and the players could do with some stability. I feel like a kid contemplating Christmas in March; I want it now dammit!!

In the mean time I'm looking forward to seeing what Craig is able to do with this team, if anything, in the short time he's got.

    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

    RIPPING THE HEART OUT by George on the Outer

    And BOG for St. Kilda in last night’s game at Marvel Stadium? It was Melbourne!  This brilliant contributor managed to be the initiator of 13.7 in turnovers for the side, and resulted in a come from behind victory for the mighty Saints. That’s it folks, Melbourne have set a new record for the most turnovers resulting in opposition scores. Despite leading half way through the final quarter (yet again) the Demons managed to right themselves and deliver the ball directly to the opposition
