Is Goodwin the right guy....

Recommended Posts

I'm an intra day stock trader and I see strong parallels between Goody's coaching and an underperfoming trader

 

Goody reminds me of a trader who's discovered what he thinks is the holy grail technical market indicator (contest based footy) He's convinced it's a sure thing and will lead him to riches in the market (top 2). He possibly had a month or two of gains (2018) but he's now losing - Consistantly and a lot! (2019) . He's sure if he tweaks it just a bit all will be good again but remains oblivious to fact the market has changed and hasn't realised this indicator is very limited and only works in certain market conditions that no longer exist (oppo has worked us out)

Like many here I was flabergasted when Goody said he'd chosen not to review the Eagles finals loss last year. If I have a big trading loss, no matter how painful (they hurt!!!!)  I review the living bejesus out of it. I don't want to make the same mistake twice. I want to know everything! Was it market conditions that didn't suit the trade plan? Was my state of mind making for poor execution or risk management? or did I miss an important cue in the charts that may have saved me that huge drawdown?  You can not brush anything under the carpet or make excuses if you want be a successful in this game and your biggest learnings always come from losses not wins.

 

Great growth in trading is often proceeded by a particularly dark period but to grow from there you have to be able to let go of thinking you know the answer as the solution is often not what you think. Hearing him yet again after our Swans loss, talk about getting back to the 'contested' Melbourne brand and 'working our backsides off' along with bewildering player selections suggest Goody's head is still firmly in the sand. I hope he pulls it out real soon before it's too late and this playing group is damaged beyond repair and become like the trader who's had too many big losses and along with their money, lost their nerve.

 

Right now we're right on the precipice but I'm so hoping I come back to this thread in 12 months and he's proved us all totally wrong

Schwartz, sticking the boot in harder than anyone we’ve seen do in the media this year. 

There’s nowhere to hide now for the coach. Something seismic needs to occur, and quickly.

I’m all for putting the foot in, but if there is one thing we can probably say we know it’s that he hasn’t lost the group! The relationship he has with the players has been that well documented. Schwarz should be bringing up other things like only just now Goody admitted we were training the wrong things in the off season

Why were we training the wrong things Axel?

He made a prelim in 2018 and even after the belting in that game it would appear he thought all he needed to do was tweak it a little and a GF would happen. Did not review the loss. Totally missed 666 and the fact we had lost a 50 goal forward. He is very lucky he got a new deal before the season started. From this point he needs a miracle in 2020 and we know how often they happen.

Lewis has come to Goody's defence, which is good to see. Lewis seems like a pretty straight shooter, non-PR BS type, so I think it's safe to say he hasn't lost the players. We have a ton of other issues, but this isn't one of them. A good base to work from provided we train hard, learn from others and play some smart footy next yr!

Wow Rono, I expect better from you

Ox (the lamebrain) suspects (but doesn't know) Goody has almost (but actually hasn't) lost the players.

Lewis is a pretty honest guy and if Goodwin was losing the players, he wouldn't comment publicly.

The fact that he has endorsed him, is enough on that subject for me.

And we have no choice anyway. He is the coach for 2020 end of story.

unrelated but geez i hope we keep Jordy on next year, even as an assistant coach, he has a wealth of experience, is passionate about the place, knows exactly what a ruthless, successful football club looks like and drives standards. his on field form may have faded but whoever gets him in an off field role will have a great asset on their hands. 

as for Goody. i was really impressed by his admission and taking responsibility for this year. i'd been concerned the club was being very vague and maybe they didn't really know what had gone wrong but i think Goodwin has hit the nail on the head where he's thrown too much at the players, confused them with game style, destroyed team chemistry and that has derailed the train and he's not been able to get it back on the tracks. 

next pre season just need to get back to the basics, get the two way running going again, winning contested ball and clearances, tackling hard, applying 120 minutes of unconditional pressure, and keeping the players fit and getting full pre seasons into guys. 

How good would it be to see Steven may come back in ripping condition from his break and get a full pre season in. i can see him bouncing back and having an All Australian quality season in 2020

And it was a glowing rear guard from Lewey.  That Goody has our best interests and those of the players at heart and is still in favour with the playing group isn't the issue.

Now he just needs (with assistance) to conduct the 'extensive' review of game style & methods / personnel / training standards across all lines that should have taken place at the end of last season and act accordingly pronto to adjust/tweak/clean out where needed and inject.  No doubt this review (in whatever form) has already commenced at certain levels as a follow up to the mid season adjustments.

Expecting a 10 to 14 bounce back (ladder) next year regardless but if we have some good outcomes from the review and at the trade table, along with some luck with injuries, we just might be a sneaky chance at taking it up a cog further and playing finals.

WHY???

inexcusable....

I think the error isn't so much training the wrong things, it's trying to train them with most of the club on the injury list. it was always going to cause confusion, even if the plan itself was good.

Sure but at the time he may have just felt he was layering the game plan, or tinkering, which is fine. i just think that's not the best idea when most of the players are injured and not training with the main group. doesn't give them a huge opportunity to get on board, even if the plan is flawless.

so i think the changes themselves were wrong, but also the timing of trying to make those changes was wrong, end result a wasted season he has to take responsbility for, and may cost him his job if significant improvements don't come about next season. i'd say if we don't break even or come close by mid season he will be under serious pressure to keep his job.

You gotta look at the context. Lewis said , Goody has been brilliant this year.  Now, clearly he has not been a brilliant coach this year. So I take it he was referring to something like staying upbeat. Lewis may be a straight shooter but he is not the sort to bag the guy on his way out. He may be even looking at a job as a Goody Assistant.  Tie will tell.

In a radio interview about mid season T-mac said it wasn't so much (players that were out or came back late) the training sessions that  were missed that hurt so much.  He said by about Rnd 4/6 out of those who missed or got back late in pre-season, most had caught up to the level required to come back in to play at AFL standard with appropriate match fitness levels / loads etc.

He suggested the main issue was not the time missed by so many as such but the time missed training the methods required to play the style being asked... "together as a unit"!

He went on to suggest that this factor alone probably effected the season (outcomes/results in matches) the most from his POV.

I am still of the opinion that Goodwin is the right guy to lead the team at least until the end of his extended contract. Of course there needs to be constant monitoring of the situation to ensure that he and the coaching team are evolving and adjusting but he is an intelligent coach and, from what I have seen and heard, he is learning from his mis-steps.

With the pre-season disruptions and the injuries during this season I do not believe it is proper to judge his performance.

When you are thrashed in a Preliminary Final and have a Half Time score of Zero Goals, you do not just tinker with a game plan. It’s pure arrogance and naive stupidity.

Why?

This Season gives all the answers. If Goodwin hadn’t signed on over Summer, i don’t think he would be here right now. 

That is how bad this year has been imo.

    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.

    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?

    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

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.
