Is Goodwin the right guy....

Recommended Posts

He did not instruct them to play wet weather footy...that's  on him. That is direction from the top. We were great in the 1st quarter. Although we didn't put enough score on the board.  BUT when it started raining we didn't adjust and still handballed too much. We allowed them extras in defence a disn't play a stay at home forward. That is coaching.

His post match will be interesting. He usually says nothing of any insight in his media conferences anyway, so I doubt this will be different. He has never inspired or impressed me when he talks.

Blame doesnt fall on Goody.

It lands on the 8 to 10 players that didnt even try today.

Coach cant make them want to play.

 

 

We have TWO injuries. Two. 

There are 6-8 players in the VFL who are in decent form. Yet Lewis, Melksham, Harmes and countless other poor performers who are not in form have not been dropped or replaced. 

We went in with 1 ruck again when Weids kicked 5 and had a good rucking game. Max had a stinker and we couldn’t get near it up forward yet we had no answers. 

It is on him that poor players are getting games. He has options he isn’t taking and frankly his match day tactics and selection of teams are worse than poor.

Anyone who says we were outcoached does not realise that our coach is Goodwin and their coach is Clarkson. Of course we were.

Agree with that.

Clarko is still the best going around!

I definitely have my doubts, but won't jump the gun because of a game in the wet. We didn't handle the conditions at all.

Coaching for the conditions is what this game is all about. I worked the rotations for the Under 13 girls today for a  Coach with passion and vision. Our girls knew what they were doing and almost got over the line. They were stoked in the rooms after not getting over the line by a couple of points. How do you reckon Goody's boys felt and how did they they felt for him?

The coach should have a game plan that the bottom 8 should easily be able to follow. We don’t have functioning plan

I understand that. Goodwin, and the side as a whole, were woeful.

But what I'm trying to say is at our stage, I'm more interested in judging our "Plan A", which I still have huge doubts about.

If I'm going to decide a young coach isn't up to it, it won't be because we failed to handle wet conditions, it will be because of our regular game plan.

I think all those bongs he smoked with Mark Ricciuto in the 90s have taken their toll on Goodwin's brain(probably Ricciuto's too).

Yes he did, he mentioned it in his pre match interview that they needed to play wet weather football.

I've been seriously concerned with Goodwin since last year. He may be a good coach on the track but on game day he is dumb as dog [censored]. It's the same crap every week. Each week there is always raised eyebrows at team selection for a start, then the constant bomb long and over handball rubbish we see every week, same as we saw last year. Then the failure to change it up when other teams get a run on, which also happened last year. We cant kid ourselves, we have beaten Brisbane and North FFS, and lost to undermanned Cats and Hawks. I can't stand him, hes a gambler with no clue. I'm over him. We just run around like headless chooks with no real plan, it's a real concern.

No Max pantsed McEvoy in the Ruck.  A second tall whether Weideman (1 good game in a row) or Pedo (still only playing half a game in the twos).  The problem was our smalls were either missing (Garlett and Fritsch before the final quarter) or were mediocre (Melksham), poor (Harmes) or a complete liability (Bugg).  

It also would have helped if we could get another onballer to assist Oliver.  We played really dumb footy.

Nitpicking I know, but we have four injuries.  vandenBerg I think would be handy as a bigger body.

Would be a gutsy call to get rid of him mid season but his gameday management is very poor and we continually make the same mistakes and simple errors. If Heaven forbid if we lost 3 of the next 4 otherwise he is deep shizen.

Don't know I wasn't in the rooms, but the footage usually shows them talking to their line coaches.  I assume Ben Matthews as the midfield coach is under the most pressure, as the run ons sides get usually start and finish in the midfield.

Get Goodwin the F out the door now!!

He has lost the playing group, and I'm not sitting though another 5 year rebuild so cut him now and find someone who can lead this group.

Gawn kept rucking straight to Hawthorn and had no influence around the ground. Hogan was killing it in the middle but we had to take him out because we had no forward target. Pedo or Weids change that. 

And god help us if Vanders being injured is our undoing.

 The demons players were laughing to each other in the rooms before the game. I saw it as i couldnt go. The Hawks were looking very serious, their banner said "Game Face".  You can tell early if  the players arent "Geed" up enough.

If for no other reason this comes back to Goody, Ive backed him but Im off him now.

Allow me to reiterate an earlier post.

Posted April 1

On any match day, who sits in the box with Goodwin? (His name simply underlines irony every time I read it). Is Craig Jennings there? I was led to believe he had considerable footy smarts. How much input do the underlings actually have on game day? The senior coach looking gobsmacked when there's a run against  us is a real concern.

Bit hard on Max his job is to get his hand on the ball, it's his midfielders job to get to the fall.  Oliver had 29 touches (25 contested) where were his mates?

God Help us if Pedo or Weids change the outcome.  We all know that the players that would have made a difference today are Jack and Tom who are both comfortably in our best 6-8 players.

We were soft and ineffectual around the ball with no clean users.  Hawthorn understandably have a better drilled team with a better system, but it was our lack of intensity after quarter time that was the killer.

Surely the players at this level should know how to play in the wet. They are supposed to be elite !!

Hawthorn showed the value of supporting each other and not allowing niceties to be the order of the day. I would suggest the Match review will be interesting , because it will show a lot of things that need remedial action . Having said that Breust, Gunstone etc handled the ball easily (because they were not pressured as much. Rioli proves that you do not have to have high clear possession stats to show you are effective.

    SAME STORY, DIFFERENT SONG by George on the Outer

    Melbourne was still suffering from the same old story - a lack of AFL capable players from which to choose at the selection table - and the Western Bulldogs got to sing their song again. But wait, that wasn’t the Doggie’s song we’ve been hearing for the last 30 years, it was some other concoction and no-one knew the words to it but whatever it was, they got to mumble it with gusto after a huge 8 point win! The sad thing is that the Bulldogs (or Footscray or whatever they choose to call

    DOGGED by KC from Casey

    On Sunday, the Casey Demons met the Footscray VFL under the roof at the same venue where their nemesis took them down in the 2017 grand final and the result left them with the same feeling of disappointment - this time with a seven point defeat that ended the club’s four game winning streak and made things a lot harder in terms of playing in this year’s final series.   And, as has so often happened this year, the Demons let the game get away from them with but failing to take advantage of th

    BARKING MAD by The Oracle

    There was so much hype proliferating about Melbourne’s prospects for season 2019 a mere four months ago, that one could be forgiven for thinking anyone contemplating the prospect of a bottom four finish for the Demons at the time was barking mad. That however, is the prospect that they face at the moment and a loss to the Bulldogs on Sunday would make it a virtual certainty.  The club’s downward spiral after several years of moving steadily on an upward trajectory has been well documented i

    THE MELBOURNE WAY by George on the Outer

    Much has been made by the coaching staff of playing a “Melbourne way” style of play. The nail-biting finish by the Demons in the dying minute of the game could not have been any more the case in point.   Leading by a game-high 38 points late in the third quarter, and by five goals at the final change, this should have been the catalyst for a romp home to an easy win.   But that is not the “Melbourne way” and the supporters, especially those with a severe case of MFCSS (aka intense inse

    PINK AND BLUE CAN’T KICK TRUE by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons took on the Northern Blues at home on Saturday  in a game that was crucial in terms of their hopes for September and they took away the valuable four points on offer after some worrying moments. Most of those worries were self-inflicted as a result of some shocking inaccuracy in front of goal, sloppiness in play and a little bit of indiscipline that all combined to make the game a lot closer than it should have been. The final scoreboard showed the Demons winning the P

    GO FIGURE by Sam the Stats Man

    In May last year, a rampant Melbourne side demolished Carlton by 109 points at the MCG. The Demons did as they pleased and ran rings against a young, abysmal Blues combination. The Dees led in virtually every key performance indicator, notably entering the inside 50 metre mark 63 times to 33 and the superiority of their attack was highlighted by a 74% shooting accuracy rate (to 47%).  A little more than a year later the two sides face each other for the first time since that rout and the ta

    GORN AT THE GABBA by George on The Outer

    With Melbourne leading the Brisbane Lions in the second term, and the game in the balance, a Max Gawn ankle injury signalled that the Demons were as good as gorrnnn for the match. Without a suitable 2nd ruck and (once again) forced to use either Tom McDonald, Tim Smith or Sam Weidemann in the ruck the Demons found themselves without a forward line that could kick a winning score. Not that anything really changed, as the forward line has been completely dysfunctional all season and one

    GAMBIT by KC from Casey

    The opening gambit of Saturday afternoon’s game told us everything about who would be its main players and who would come out on top. The Casey Demons were eager to turn the tables on the Box Hill Hawks who beat them in last year’s grand final and then gave them a first up mauling at City Oval, Box Hill. Kicking with the aid of a strong breeze in the opening term, Braydon Preuss’ first hit out went straight to the diminutive Jay Kennedy Harris who pounced with a 70 metre shot at goal that sailed

    MURDER BY NUMBERS by Sam the Stats Man

    The respective ladder positions of this week’s combatants tell the story of one side on the rise and the other in steep decline. Since their most recent meeting which took place early last year, the Dees and the Lions have changed positions. They are opposed to each again on the former’s home turf with the locals in fine fettle after blowing St Kilda off the park at Marvel Stadium.  The Lions’ home ground advantage has been a major consideration so far this year. They have won five out of s

    MUD HEAP by KC from Casey

    In the opening round of the 2018 VFL season, the Casey Demons enjoyed an emphatic 107 point victory over Coburg at Piranha Park. The team was loaded with Melbourne listed players (half a dozen of them were in the team that beat Fremantle on Saturday) and the side was in its way to a grand final appearance. A season and a half later, the club returned to the same venue in the hope of kick starting a season that had gone somewhat awry under new coach Sam Radford and while they tasted victory (as y

    PRETENDERS SENT PACKING by George on the Outer

    Fremantle, the Perth pretenders at sixth on the premiership table should have easily accounted for the Demons, sitting barely a game off the bottom of the ladder.   And for the majority of the game, it certainly looked that would be the case, until the final quarter, when the Demons stopped giving the Dockers easy chances, or making plain, dumb decisions. Not that their situation was helped by some simply appalling umpiring during the match, that kept gifting Fremantle easy scores.  Th

    ORWELLIAN by Whispering Jack

    Please permit me to begin this rather tragic pathetic preview of Melbourne’s forthcoming game against Fremantle with some personal reflections.   Two years ago, we had visitors staying with us who are all sports fans so we arranged tickets for the entire family for the Melbourne vs Fremantle game at the MCG. The Dockers were struggling at the time while the Demons were on the up and up so I was fairly confident about the outcome. Naturally, we all left the ground bitterly disappointed.
