Is Goodwin the right guy....

I blame fitness, all players have skills, it’s skills after hard running when it comes into question. I blame Misson for all this, our 4th Quarter fade outs all year is evidence of this. 

The way Mahoney talked about the significance of a new fitness coach seems to suggest, that internally, the whole club knows Misson has dropped the ball this year and a new one is badly needed. Misson is so far behind his peers.

Misson is serving his notice period. Let’s be honest, who really gives a [censored] when serving notice period. Probably spends all day on Seek US looking for his next gig.

If Goodwin doesn’t improve this team next year he is finished, I’ll give him 10 matches next year

I’m starting to change my mind on sacking  Goodwin. From what I have seen this year we don’t have a coach as the errors we make are surely made by a team that doesn’t have one so we maybe we give him a year to actually coach the team to see if he is any good as there is no way he could have been coaching at all this year!

If you had to rate all 18 coaches this year from best to worst, Goodwin would comfortably sit last. Apart from the sacked coaches, I can’t think of anyone having a worse year than him.

Someone please tell me Goodwin chastised ANB for his over the top celebration of the Petty goal when the game was on the line. No doubt the Eagles will be laughing at his act now. Something tells me ANB is just a bit off the pace with his standing in the game. But back to Goodwin. That type of celebration should just not be tolerated when there is so much more work to do when the game is on the line.

Alan Richardson had a better year.

Probably Brad Scott too.

For all the Goodwin bashing (some of it is warranted) there has been very little acknowledgement.

While I am still bitterly disappointed about todays result and the season as a whole, he has completely changed the game style and the team has actually started to show some actual improvement offensively and defensively, even considering injuries to key personnel and other issues.

I would love or defence to be a lot more consistent, and we are lacking some real pace and class, but we've shown glimpses in the second half of the season.

Im very keen to see what off season moves are made.

I guess at the end of the day the score board/ladder will dictate the length of his tenure.

I am not having a go. Could you tell me what the game style is. Could you also tell me the timeline you base your improvement argument on.

Err did you watch todays game?

Apart from a few bad mistakes and terrible kicking for goal the boys actually played pretty well vs the reigning premier. 

The game style has had to change from a large stoppage and contested brand which relied on dirty balls and full on attack with quick ball movement to less stoppages, more run and good ball use reliant.

The biggest change IMO from the new rules is, there are less stoppages and more running. Guys who excelled in the stoppages - Gawn, Clarry & Brayshaw have been less effective in the 2019 version of the game

Our zones and lack of pace and inability to stop the opposition  ball were a disaster at the start of the year... We've finally been able to curb opposition scoring and keep our hands on the ball (not turning it over as much anymore). We've had to change from run and play on at every occasion to slower ball movement.

We've really lacked the personnel to execute either game style property in 2019. lack of pace for the quick movement and lack of skill for the slower pace.

While we are not setting the world on fire we have been a lot more competitive in the 2nd half of the year.

That's just my quick take on the season... but overall it's been [censored] and bitterly disappointing

You guys are right about one thing though. If he doesn't start winning again, he will be gone.

Does Goodwin realise Fritsch is a forward now?

Would not surprise me to see him played in the backline next week.

Im sure some here think I have some pathological hatred of the bloke...and some others. I'm here to say I don't. The reality is I have no care for an opinion for most unless they impact the club. Im sure  Goody, Macca, Josh , Todd etc etc are all people I could enjoy a beer with and wax lyrical given other opportunity but in terms of whats happening to the MFC it's not whether I or anyone likes them....or doesn't.  It's about whether they are giving us what we want ...especially for the buck.  Success.  And they aren't.

it's not personal...just ever so much matter of FACT. Time to go you guys.

Presser was very tactical in saying it is time to win again, mindful we play Saints next week.

Good link...

the reality is that the pool of coaches is so small there is often little incentive to try something else.

We don't even have the equivalent of American College football.

The soft salary cap is simply a tax. Exceed it and you pay dollar for dollar "tax" to the AFL. The powerful clubs have no problem with doing this if the need arises.

If Hinkley and Lyon go this year that's five coaches in one year.

Things are changing

I just wish he would speak like he is speaking to any one of his mates, instead of the robotic rehearsed media training rubbish he brings week in week out.

I understand the need to tow the company line every now and then, but for [censored] sake cut the monotone [censored], show some emotion and speak frankly. 

The supporters deserve it after this diabolical year. It’s too late the stem the bleeding now...

    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
