I don't think I'm going out on a limb here when I suggest that not one nuffie who has posted on this thread knows whether Goodwin can coach. or not.

That said, his team is a reflection of him and it was a bad day in the office.  If it was dry I reckon the Dees win.  Their wet weather footy was pathetic.  And how that ****  Bugg gets a game is beyond me.  I have an unhealthy hate for that ****.  While I'm at it, Harmes, Melksham and a few others can you know what.

I also recognise that every coach in history has had nuffies call for their head.  Early days Clarkson had it, Bomber Thompson had it, and virtually his entire coaching career Hardwicke has had it. It comes with the territory.    

Nuffies are going to nuff.

In 26 games he's had more wins than losses, so I'll cut a young coach some slack in round 4.

Hardwick had 8 or so years in which he made the finals once or twice.... If that is your measure of success MFC will be well and truly needing life support by then.

I understand your point, but does the game plan concern you? Do you think we are getting the most out of our players? Do you think team selection has been poor? 

Maybe Goodwin can coach, but I’m struggling to see it. I genuinely hope I am wrong. I want nothing more than for him to win us a flag!

Sorry Wise, no offence,

None taken, especially after our performance today.  I get why this question is being asked.  We as supporters are well within our rights to expect better of the club at this point in time.  Nobody, even those who thought the Hawks would win, would have predicted this outcome today.  To get rolled by 10 goals is embarrassing to say the least.

As ProDee mentioned above, Goodwin has still won more games than he's lost as a senior coach and that's telling.  It's just his second year in charge of the side and I think he still deserves more time, even though we as Melbourne supporters have given enough time in the last decade.

At this point in time I still think he's the man for the job, but he's got some serious work ahead of him.

Seeing I hate that **** Bugg I'm not overly rapt.

We looked slow, so I'd have Hannan and Hunt in and that **** Bugg and some other fumbler out.

It wasn't a day for talls, so I'm not concerned by Weideman being held off.

As has been often reported and noted here, he gets on well with players and staff. Fair call. But is he an effective match-day coach? On the evidence at hand, clearly not. Either he doesn't take advice, turns a deaf ear to it or has poor support. My worry is that Goodwin is almost manic about being an AFL coach. It's all about him proving himself to himself given his chequered background.

What worries me the most, is that we all knew it was going to be a cold wet windy day, so there is no excuse to be so outplayed. 

To kick the first 3-4 and then give up is not on. 

If this was 2016 i would agree with your above post, but we are now 2 years forward of that, for no gains. 

If we are to play September, it’s the scum Whorethorns we have to kill. 

They have killed us so many times since i was in Primary School, so many times. 

I have now retired from work after a 31 year stint, and the Fabric of this club HAS NOT CHANGED....

It’s why we never get a good run on TV

we can never be trusted. 

Bartlett has a big week ahead of him

Yes.

That's about as good as many of them are at this stage. You can't build a team around players in the 30 - 60 game range and expect them to perform every single week, nor all perform together every week. Even Gawn has only 78 games.

Not one of our key position players or key mids has more than 100 games. Meanwhile ... Roughhead: 257 games. We lack consistency and we lack composure, especially with our on-ballers and KP players, which is characteristic of a lack of experience (you can perform well, but not under all circumstances or regularly).

Last year I thought Goody made moves, threw things around and tried to win games,  now I have no confidence in what he is doing. The game plan seems exactly the same as last year but teams have worked it out, first quarter Hogan is dominating, next quarter he is stuck in the goal square. 

He sat Max on the bench for a ridiculously long time as the momentum swung to the Hawks. 

Did not rectify the inability of our players adapting to the wet. 

Oir back line has declined majorly, constant selecting of players who can’t kick simple goals.

Over handballing and handballs that go one meter and just put that player under the pressure.

He was badly out coached today. Players looked confused. Every game this year, I have said in the game day thread that I question his coaching ability.

I'm concerned, I don't think we're in trouble yet. But I'm not convinced, and we're still yet to turn the corner, year 5 into the Roos rebuild.

Some perspective: Richmond were 5-3 last year including an 80 point loss to Adelaide. So that is food for thought. 

That said there were some really concerning signs today. Yes we have talent. But we are not a very good team, we're still average at best. We can't even really pump sides. We never put the foot to the throat.

Hawthorn gave us a football lesson today, and Clarkson gave Goodwin an absolute towelling. It's either indicative of where we're at as a team, or it's an anomaly. Given Goodwin's coaching performance, I think the former is more likely. The unfortunate thing is that just as we enter into the premiership window, we find ourselves with a coach still finding his feet. I'm far from convinced we'll play finals this year.

Gee wiz, it wasn't long ago that the simpletons were asking Paul Roos to exit one year early, because we couldn't wait for Goody to get in quick enough.

 

Who were the wise heads around him that decided on getting Jordan; selling the farm for Lever in a super-draft; letting Jack Viney decide to get back after leaving theatre.  Who were the wise heads around him that thought no medicos at camp one was a great idea.  These are the decisions that will kill us, rather than what tricks Goody can come up with on match day.

    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

    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! 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.
