Said it once and I’ll say it again. I know we won’t due to the length of his contract, but we should move him on. The cost of keeping him is far greater than any potential payout.

Is this still a genuine question?

Structure - 0/10

Passion  -0/10

Flexibility - 0/10

Just where does he rate any higher?

I've spent 2.5 years defending this bloke but I'm officially done. Has proven utterly clueless at every turn this year.

Just pay him out and get someone competent back in charge. This guy has no bloody idea what he's doing, demonstrably proven by the stubborn persistence of his godawful gameplan (and I'm being generous calling his idiotic structures a plan, unless the plan is to execute the dumbest football possible).

Would 30,000 members pay $100 each to buy a real coach?

Tonight's stats say it all.

Hitouts won 57 to 19 but clearances equal.

2.11 kicked after 1/4 time to 11.5.

Goodwon and coaching staff should be embarrassed. 

This has been a common theme all year. 

Gee the club will rue the contract extension if this year is repeated in 2020.

It would be nice to see the coach show some passion like Horse in the other box.  Get stuck into them Simon because this stunned mullet look is working wonders....

8 goalless quarters this year.

15 one-goal quarters.

16 two-goal quarters.

In 46% of our quarters this year we have scored no more than two goals. Or:

- four matches of 6 goals

- four matches of 4 goals

- two goalless matches

This season is actually much, much worse than people realise.

We barely beat GC and Carlton, probably should have lost to Freo, held on vs Hawthorn. Lose those and only one win for the season. And I know what you're gonna say: "Oh but if we had won the close matches we'd be playing finals". Except we are so far from a finals team, and excruciatingly close to a one-win team.

If Goodwin turns this around it will be one of the most significant turnarounds of all time. We are firmly, FIRMLY at the bottom.

He isn't turning this around. we have to make a decision.

Fox Footy dissecting it. We scored 4 points from stoppages, despite having Gawn against a part time ruckman, and against a midfield that had just recorded the worst 5 week period of clearances ever in the history of the game. It actually boggles the mind how we never have any answers.

I think they have all just given up plus the lack of any footballing skill by JKH, Spargo (who would struggle to get a game in local footy), Dunkley and whoever else as I have given up on naming them. In fact the whole team was useless including Gawn.

Hitouts 57-19, hitouts to advantage 15-2. Yet we lose by 53 points. I don't think any other coach could achieve such a mindboggling discrepancy if they were actively trying!

Whatever window of opportunity this list has for premiership success, Goodwin and his team of incompetent coaches are doing everything in their power to slam the door shut.

And sorry this is all the coaches doing. He has no idea like his players. Absolutely pathetic tonight. Worst effort for season and club needs to address this NOW. I'd be happy to throw a Grand in to help them get rid of the coach.

Since the start of the season I genuinely have not seen any resemblance of a game plan or structure, its just Goodwin moving magnets around the board and praying that something happens. The players look that disinterested because they cannot compete in a system that is going out and telling them to just play football. Every week its just Goodwin moving another key defender forward. First Petty, then Oscar last week and now Frost. Goodwin has no clue and all we have is Gary Pert to thank for giving us at least another year of this rubbish. Peter Jackson should never have left...

If Ratten doesn’t get the Saints job we should grab him. Also Voss would have to be better.

Perhaps if we had one of them as an assistant to Badloss   then he might get the message and realise the passion of the supporters instead of sitting behind the glass with a stunned look on his face.  It might upset him to lose his pay packet as much as losing a game does to the demon supporters. 

one one more miserable game till mad monday,    Do the players and coaching staff deserve a day off,   they have been off all year !

I pray that our shithouse tactics are mostly from Jennings and not from Goodwin. We will not win a flag unless we dramatically change our gamestyle. I said it at the time and I say it now, Goodwin had not proven enough to be given a three year deal.

Exactly KDA. The longer we wait to make the inevitable decision, the more and more damage Goodwin is doing to our playing group. For the love of god, he needs to go soon after the NM game.

I know that i'd be more than willing to cough it up. Would be a very worthwhile investment.

Even with a good off season anyone who thinks this season will not affect us mentally in 2020 is way off the pace. We need a new game style and do not have the players to adept to such a change quickly. Expect a middle of the road finish next year if all goes ok.

Yep. I have thought the same thing

we are lucky not to be on 1 win this year. Very lucky

2019 is far worse than any Neeld or Bailey years. 

Bring on The AGM. I want to see Members get angry...

I feel we are witnessing a coach who rode on the coattails of all of Roos` good work last year, when we played above ourselves for 5 or 6 weeks before we ran out of steam.

Looks lost in the coaches box OR he has lost the players.

He has had an absolute shocking year.

Its obvious tonight this team is once again in tatters.

Problem is, who replaces him?

    BACK IN STYLE by Whispering Jack

    From the moment when the Elton John character in the movie “Rocketman” burst into its opening scene dressed as a flamboyant demon on his way to an addiction rehabilitation session, the game was on. Here was yet another film about a person gifted with a meteoric rise to stardom finding coke, booze and a hedonistic lifestyle that led directly to a destructive crash into the abyss. Ultimately, these stories end in total disaster (“A Star is Born”, “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Judy”) but this one resulted

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2019

    PART ONE - OVERTURE  I have a disclaimer at the outset. I’m not a fan of the races - be they horses or motors of any kind. Once the final siren sounds on the football season, I find the month or so that follows and corresponds roughly with the Spring Racing Carnival to be the most boring time of the year for sports fans. You turn on the radio and you’re confronted by the monotonous drone of a self-proclaimed racing expert or by the nasally twang of an ex-jockey banging on about the equine p

    CHANGES 2019 by The Oracle

    PART 1 - IT’S A LITTLE MORE COMPLICATED THIS TIME This year’s free agency, trade and draft period will see the usual drama and upheaval as the AFL’s 18 clubs seek to better their lists in order to challenge for finals and possibly premiership honours. Long before the final siren sounded on the season just over a week ago, the maneuvering was under way with player agents and clubs discussing possible player movements and in some cases, deals had already been done.  Yesterday, the r

    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

    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
