From memory

past no longer an issue but it was an issue last year

asked about having the youngest list, was it by design. Said no in his roosey way. Basically said the younger guys are earning their spots over older lads

says he doesn't do heaps of the technical side of coaching. Praised his assistants no end. Said he works with the leaders and makes sure mindset is correct, tries to drag each player out and chat

has a house in Hawaii that he can rent out at a reasonable rate :roos:

fantastic interview. Whilst he spoke I reflected on where we were and where we are now, we have a lot to thank Paul Roos for. We were below a laughing stock, we were irrelevant. Three years on we are exciting and the talk is all about future rather than past. Cheers Roosy

Yeah I didn't mind this interview, seemed freer, like a bourden had been lifted. 

Was asked if he was offended about Goodwin getting the credit for how we're playing. He said paraphrasing "not at all, if anyone should be offended it's the other assistants who have all been fantastic at their jobs, if you knew how a footy club was run you'd know how much they all contribute." Cop that David King. 

Addressed the veil of negativity around the supporters comment he made last year, says he understands the criticism he copped, doesn't care, he said it and they had to address and deal with it last year. All that sort of stuff (player negativity) is not mentioned now. No need, it's new players now. 

 

Not talking finals, they all know where we're at. 

But he seemed to me a lot more comfortable, proud maybe.

Welcome (a bit belatedly), DP. Your views about, and hopes for, our 'main (coach) man' are well shared here, I reckon.

But I'm just trying to work out if you have any 'main (player) men' ideas? (or are you just a Russian oligarch - and, if so, please put some no-strings-attached $$$ into our club, or at least into Demonland)

It was good to see him back on 360, I miss his usual spot but having said that it makes these times he's on a bit more involved. It really seems like he feels he's achieve at least a part of what he's set out to do. He's built a professional foundation and team, and is confident he's leaving the club in good hands with team Goodwin.

I sense a lot of love for Jack Viney from him as well!

Nope,  it's just that if he felt any other way, Jack would belt the cr@p out of him

bottom line is that we are 68 points per week a better side than when Neeld finished. That's in 2 seasons plus 7 rounds. That is seriously impressive

I don't know your calculations for that figure, but I believe you 100% from what I'm seeing week to week. When you put it like that it's pretty clear how important the dude has been for us.

I'm not sure who's responsible for the hiring of Plapp at Casey, but he's also seriously impressed me from the little I've seen/heard of him. Listening last week via Casey radio, he gave the team a quite deliberate kick in the pants for a 3rd quarter effort he didn't like, despite the team being up a squillion points to nothing. He was measured, calm, deliberate but very effective. I doubt any player left the huddle thinking a cruisy last quarter was an option. It was very Roosy TBH. It wouldn't surprise me if he ended up on the MFC coaching panel in the near future.

Not sure I know how to quote your post on the thread relating to Goodwin's possible replacement but your last statement may have hit the nail on the head. This is not a question of promoting him into Goodwin's current role over McCartney either as he is also playing a fantastic role and should be rewarded for it.

They both deserve a pay rise however, assuming Goodwin may be on slightly less than Roos, I am sure that we accommodate it (plus have a little over to ensure we retain a mentoring or development academy role for Roos).

How friggin' good has this guy been for our club! 

Especially liked the discussion about the negativity of the past no longer being an issue and it's not brought up at all anymore. Great to watch some of the footage of the players in the huddle at games, seeing Oliver, Brayshaw, Gawn, Viney etc so intense and driven to improve. Success is not an optional outcome for these young guys, they want it now.

Roosy's legacy will go to another level by the time he leaves us.

    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
