Paul Roos, the Demon inside

Recommended Posts

I like the article, but should have been published in the lead up to the Queen's Birthday game.

I think, that Paul Roos will coach for 5 years minimum.. Once he gets a sniff of success he will not want to leave.. He will want to finish Mission Impossible! Its looking like we may win 7 games this year, with abit of luck more..

Thoughts? I think he will coach for 5 years minimum!

Yes....I saw how pumped he was after knocking off Ess when he thumped the desk hard!!! It just reinforces my thoughts moreso that he will be around longer in the coaching role...... even though he has stated 3 years will see him out...

The way I see it is it keeps the media off his back full well knowing he has stated 3 years only. Less pressure on him & more time to spend on completely overhauling MFC and turning us into a powerhouse.

And then when the time comes for a contract renewal it will be a 2nd great coup in 3 years for MFC and more positivity to a club due to really shine at that point.

He is a master of coaching and smoke & mirrors....make no mistake about that.

Its more of a dream for us Demon fanatics but tell me why it cant happen......What he states & what he does do are completely different things...we have seen this before have we not?

Said he wasnt interested in the job at MFC....and then......HE TOOK IT!

We will find out down the track anyhow wont we.

I live in hope but can't see it happening. He's said 3 years max, we'll hire a successor after this season, so there's no turning back after that.

I think the length of time is very dependent on their activity with getting/nominating a successor in during the off season. I see him doing the 3 years with a possibility of up to 5 but if they get a successor in place and tell him "you will be senior coach in 201_" and then go back on it I can't see that being great for coaching harmony. Also depends on whether they put a date on it, they could say "we're getting you as our coach in waiting but it will be up to Paul Roos when that happens".

I would love him to thrust that premiership cup in the air in Dees colours!

Great supporter confidence booster. I particularly liked this quote - “I’m really enjoying it and I probably have more of an attachment to the club than I felt I would have, which is good.”

I think he'll stay about 5 years and then move back into an Academy type role. Would love him for the next ten years though!

Staying on and getting us into a granny within 5 years would be just about the best footy story of all time.

ps. Port may have a reasonable case to mount over the next year or two

If Roosy stays and wins a flag for the Dees he will be Deemed to be the best coach in the AFL, ever.

As it is he has performed a minor miracle in getting us competitive and playing to some sort of a plan, as well as resurrecting the careers of several players previously thought of as duds.

He's actually made it a pleasure to go to the football again and I thank him sincerely for that.

Let's just wait to see who his successor is.

That will determine how long he will be coach.

I'm sure he will be coach as long as it takes to get his understudy up to speed.

I can't see him walking away without leaving the club in good hands.

3 years max, maybe a 4th but only if the right successor is a fit.

I see Dew reckons he is now ready to have a crack at the main job (and nearly signed up for MFC). link

!00% agree RF.

For Roos to take us from basket case to premiership(s) (in addition to his Sydney achievements) would make him the greatest coach of all time. (hopefully an incentive for him too)

I love his coaching (always loathed Neelds). Sceptical of succession plan because usually when someone's made coach, THEY want and need to be coach, not second guessing what their great predesessor would do (did you see Bomber T's response when it was suggested he be the successor?). I think we're miles better off with Roos himself directly making those correct decisions and influencing players the way he does so well, for hopefully many years.

    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

    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
