Is Goodwin the right guy....

Recommended Posts

So let me get this straight Alan Richardson, has previously emphatically stated he wants to work in assistant coach and development roles in future, not a senior coach, and is joining the MFC coaching panel:

"The 54-year-old will be able to offer strong support to Simon Goodwin and help the growth of the whole coaching team."

But Simon Goodwin was set for the sacking in the mid-year review and this will be announced on Sunday.  So all this would have been discussed with Richardson in the interview process?

Think people are forgetting that:

Richardson worked under/with Hinkley at PAFC.

Burgess also worked with both above.

 

There is zero chance Richardson would be announced as assistant today and coach on Sunday - he would have been unveiled next week if so.

 

Richardson is an assistant in 2020: confirmed.

What is unconfirmed is who the MFC senior coach is in 2020.

Except for the above quote. To mention Goodwin like this doesn't make sense if you are already going to sack him 2 days later and is completely unprofessional.

Sorry, yes - they should have written:

"The 54 year old will be able to offer strong support to the next coach of the MFC, with Simon Goodwin expected to be sacked on Sunday"...

I got that. Was just joking.

Worth noting that the article was written by our resident work experience kid Ben Gibson (ie nor an AFL article as many are) so presumably would have been ticked off by the CEO given the importance of the announcement.

As you rightly say not a great look to bring a new assistant in to support your coach  then sack that coach two days later.

Richo might know what is happening.

“Christian Petracca I think wants to spend more time in the midfield and he’s been a little bit frustrated which is what happens at this time of the year,” Browne told The Hot Breakfast.

Tom Browne's Mail On Christian Petracca's Meeting With Melbourne

You should add also that he doesn't believe Patracca's going to request a trade. As far as I'm concerned, Patracca may want more Midfield minutes but he doesn't have the tank to do so yet.

That is what I would have expected it to say, or something like it, if they're going to sack Goodwin on Sunday.

Are you serious. You think  Richo would come to the club  knowing we were going to sack the coach?

Perhaps he knows that Hinkley is coming and as an inexperienced AFL coach will want and need Richo's support from. Wait......

I was simply suggesting that the MFC would never release anything about sacking a coach via another announcement...

Hence the rumours about Sunday's announcement.

Sorry that makes zero sense.

They wouldn't announce Richo's appointment today if they were going to sack Goodwin on Sunday. And in the bizarro world that might see that happen they certainly wouldn't refer to the support Richo was going to give Goodwin next season in that announcement

And on the so called rumours of an announcement that is base don some random calling into 3aw's rumour (read muck raking) file. And its not even clear the rumour was about the dees

This is the whole article;

“Christian Petracca I think wants to spend more time in the midfield and he’s been a little bit frustrated which is what happens at this time of the year,” Browne told The Hot Breakfast.

“I’m not suggesting he’s different to any other player but his manager met with Melbourne on Monday…I think they just resolved some of Petracca’s concerns so I don’t think he’ll be in trade period.”

The meeting comes after a horror 2019 for the Dees who are set to finish the year second-bottom of the ladder after reaching the prelim last year.

I tend to think a Goodwin defenestration would likely be telegraphed more strongly than this via the rumour mill.

I have been hearing rumours for most of the year that Petracca won’t be at Melbourne next year, I hope it’s not true, one of a handful that has improved this year. I have also thought it to be a load of rot and thought nothing of it, but given the year we have had I would say watch this space.

    THE TORRENS THUMPING 2.0 by George on the Outer

    Once again the banks of Adelaide’s Torrens River witnessed the Melbourne Football Club handing out another on-field thumping to its opponent. This time the hapless victim was North Melbourne and given it was only the club’s second win against them since 2007, it was a very satisfying outcome. The Demons got off to a slow start once again, looking listless from their four day break, a situation that wasn’t helped by Sam Weideman and Christian Petracca missing easy set shots. At the first bre

    THE 2020 EQUATION by Whispering Jack

    The 2020 equation is simple for the Melbourne Football Club – it must keep winning and it must take some big scalps during the second half of the season without dropping games against the lesser lights. The Demons have gone down this season to the 1st, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th teams on the ladder including twice by less than a goal in games that could easily have gone the other way. Against that, they have beaten 11th, 13th, 14th and 18th and though they thumped the Crows during the week, the

    THE TORRENS THUMPING by George on the Outer

    THE TORRENS THUMPING - LEAVING THE DEMONS BEHIND That headline might lead a reader to think that Melbourne had lost badly in Adelaide but no!  It was actually the MFC which left it’s demons from the previous week behind as it applied the blowtorch to the Crows in the final quarter of their match at the Adelaide Oval and went on their merry way to record a 51 point win before their biggest crowd of the year (even if they were mainly hostile). Much had been made in the media about t

    STATE OF DEESASTER by the Oracle

    Melbourne’s circus caravan rolls into Adelaide on Wednesday night, an event that will put shivers up the spine of every Crows’ supporter as they look directly into the face of disaster. The flakey Demons left their home town a month ago and proceeded to rough up the Gold Coast Suns and Hawthorn in Sydney before moving on to the sunny Queensland where they missed by a bee’s diaphragm against the more or less local second-on-ladder Brisbane Lions. Then, they had to butter up against the top t

    OVERPOWERED by George on the Outer

    In a dismal display against Port Adelaide, Melbourne showed it had learnt nothing from their previous week’s loss to Brisbane. Port, in contrast, after losing to St.Kilda, addressed their failings, and as a result made the Demons look like a second-rate side.  Melbourne failed to score a goal in the first quarter, and the first time it seriously troubled the goal umpire was saved until a minute before half-time.  Did it get any better?  No with their meagre three goals for the sec

    DESPERATION OF THE MOMENT by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne’s recent win against Hawthorn highlighted how important Max Gawn’s ruck domination is for the team. A week later however, that domination continued but its effect was totally blunted by the Brisbane Lions midfield and, as a consequence, what could have been an easy win over a leading AFL contender turned into a disappointing but close loss and a sense of desperation now looms over the club as the halfway mark of the season approaches. This week’s opponent in Port Adelaide also und

    THE FOUR POINT FAIL by George on the Outer

    Melbourne went down by 4 points in a thrilling finish against Brisbane, but they failed by more than the 4 points.     They also failed to score the 4 points necessary to keep them in the race for the finals, and now find themselves sitting 6 points outside the top 8, but effectively 2 games outside (even though they have a game in hand).   The Demons had more than enough opportunities to win.  Six very easy shots on goal failed to bother the goal umpire with a major and ultimate

    NORTH OF THE BORDER PART 2 by The Oracle

    The travelling COVID circus moves north of the border yet again and, unless at some time in the near future, Papua New Guinea opens its borders, this could be the last time this phenomenon happens. And as fortune would dictate, the resurgent Demons are walking directly into the sights of the locals from the bright lights of Brizvegas to Carrara - the scene of some long-forgotten (and deservedly so) battles with one of the Lions’ former incarnations, namely, the Brisbane Bears.

    ON THE NOSE by George on the Outer

    One of the Hawthorn Football Club’s valued sponsors is Azep® Nasal Spray and given the thrashing handed out to the Hawks in today’s game, it would appear that they need a huge supply of the sponsor’s product because they are simply on the nose. This condition was caused by the sheer dominance of the Demons, led magnificently by skipper Max Gawn with 27 hitouts and 22 disposals including two clearances. Around him in the middle were Christian Petracca with 29 touches, Clayton Oliver (also on

    THE PREMIER LEAGUE by Whispering Jack

    So the new man under the pump is Clarko, which demonstrates how sad but predictable the football media is these days. In an age where each AFL team’s form can be topsy turvy and unpredictability is the order of the day, the coach of a team that has played five out of the top six teams from the previous season and sits with a 3/3 win loss record is this week’s whipping boy.   This comes admittedly on the back of a bad fortnight from the Hawks who in recent years have exhibited an enormous

    SUNSMART by George on the Outer

    If you don’t want to get sunburnt, you follow the Sunsmart rules.  Melbourne took the advice and with their season on the line, avoided getting burnt by the Gold Coast Suns, with a gripping 17 point win. It was a match that could have gone either way, with the sides within a kick of each other for all but the final minutes of the final quarter. Melbourne had stretched the lead earlier in the game to 18 points, but that quickly evaporated to a neck and neck race to the finish.  Finally,

    NORTH OF THE BORDER by The Oracle

    The outcomes of Melbourne’s recent games against the Gold Coast Suns are a pretty good barometer of how the teams are faring. The Demons easily accounted for them twice in 2018, the last win being a 96-point cakewalk at the MCG in Round 20 when they scored a whopping 21.17.143 to 7.5.47. Ironically, Melbourne’s score of 9.3.57 at the first break that afternoon is leading its highest score for a full game to date this year by 3 points. In those days, they played fast, skillful football, moved th
