Is It time yet ? to sack this useless Coach.

 

Obviously has lost the players...   has discipline issues...   and is of a lesser breed, from over there.

Still feel that way now DV8?

I think he has done a great job.

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.

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.

Goodnight Goodwin.

Some real good quotes above, one day some of you might learn something about building a team.

Today’s performance was the most insipid since Neeld. For such a talented side it was inexcusable. Everything should now be questioned.

Insipid endeavour, execution of skills and intensity.

Don't  blame the conditions, Hawthorn were far superior.

Absolutely zero noticeable tactical changes today. Didn’t even move Hogan back into the midfield despite destroying it in the first quarter.

A one one stat is defined as "Being isolated in a one-on-one contest where both players have an equal opportunity to win the ball." If our defenders can't win one on ones then they are not very good defenders. We rank 14th.

Its not defined as 'a mid kicking it to the advantage of one his forwards' - that wouldn't be counted as a one on one stat.

Its not that hard if you can read. Maybe have to climb off your high horse first.....

Have you got a link to that data - I'd love to see it.

Watching the replay there was good insight from Jimmy Bartel.

Melbourne are the best third quarter team in the competition, which was a huge tick for the coaching group, because they're able to reassess and make the necessary effective changes.

The peanuts here that don't rate Goodwin wouldn't know their ar$e from their elbow.

The mans a genius, leave the lumbering Vandenburg on Allir Allir, and play the first half through him, you couldn’t make stuff like this up if you stayed up for a week without sleep.

For me making the bottom half of the 8 was about par. We have a list that most would put in the top 4 for talent. Also the majority of that talent have now got over that crucial 50 game mark together

Hogan 51 games

Salem 67

Harmes 66

Petracca 60

Viney 95

Lever 67

Brayshaw 55

Gawn 96 (100th on GF day?)

Oliver 57

Frost 66

OMac 59

ANB 56

Then there is the > 100 games crowd in Jetta, Tyson, TMac, Melksham and Hibberd

Throw in a couple of wily veterans in Jones and Lewis and you have an almost perfect list profile. It should only get better too as the blokes currently in that 50-70 games group move into the 80-100 games. 

Goodwin has inherited a fair list and one that Roos had already started implemented the “from the contest out” approach. 

Having said all that Goodwin has them believing in themselves. There is a trust that each player will ‘go’ when it is their turn. They play a brand of football that you would imagine will stand up to the pressures of finals. They genuinely seem to enjoy playing together and for Goodwin. 

Goodwin has got them to where they should be at the end of Rnd 23. I reckon he could take them a fair bit higher.

To the people who have recently posted on here bagging the posters whom earlier in the year questioned Goodwin, how many of you had a line through Frost’s name at the start of the year?

Has a great temperament Goody and certainly has won the minds of the playing group and seems to learn quickly from past mistakes.

He's clearly been talking with Rooke and potentially even McCartney.

I bagged Goodwin but backed Frost. It takes all kinds I suppose.

    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

    PACK YOUR BAGS by George on The Outer

    The scene was captured by the TV camera’s before the match with a view of the Melbourne side’s bags packed next to the team bus to facilitate their flight up north to the AFL hub where they will play their next matches. However, on the basis of the efforts against Richmond, unless things change, and change rapidly, there will be some who will be told to pack their bags on a more permanent basis. Once again, the supporters got much the same story from this match against Richmond, as

    SOUTH OF THE BORDER by the Oracle

    Thankfully they moved this week’s game from Sydney where the sun shines and the virus breeds ever so slowly and almost nobody returns a positive test. The change of fixture comes at precisely the right time to allow everyone in town to head to the MCG on Sunday at around 3:30pm, not to catch up with what’s going on inside the ground but rather, to do what’s fashionable for woke folk in 2020 — pulling down statues. It’s time for Kevin Bartlett and Leigh Matthews to go but you can’t touch Norm Smi

    LESSONS IN LOSING by George on the Outer

    Turn up for the game and look like you want to win it.  Melbourne lost this game to Geelong, a game after a couple of extended breaks, looking like they were at the end of a 22 game season. Right from the start there was a lack of intensity across the board, as the Demons played exactly the type of game that the ageing Geelong list wanted. Geelong repeatedly played possession footy, to avoid having to run those ageing legs, something that Melbourne failed to exploit.  To use the oft quot

    QUARRANTINO by Whispering Jack

    At a little after 4.00pm last Saturday, the MCG ceased to be the centre of the AFL universe. That was when the AFL’s el supremo Gil McLaughlin announced that the Bombers’ Conor McKenna had returned a COVID-19 positive result and declared that the game set for the following day between Essendon and Melbourne was postponed.  What followed was truly the stuff of a pulp fiction novel. We witnessed a suitcase load of mental gymnastics and spin calculated to let McKenna (and the Essendon Football

    WHADDA WE SING? by Whispering Jack

    When the Melbourne team sang “The Grand Old Flag” last Saturday at Marvel Stadium in the absence of skipper Max Gawn, Ed Langford and Adam Tomlinson who were first time winners at their new club and Jayden Hunt, the leading goal kicker of the day it was passed off as an honest mistake. Taken in isolation, it most probably was accidental but the problem is that little accidents have been happening far too often in the club’s recent history and, in this case, it was symptomatic not only of a day t

    A POINT OF DIFFERENCE by George on the Outer

    It was Melbourne v Carlton at the comics stadium; a game between 16 and 17 in 2019. How could anyone pick a winner?  There had to be a point of difference, and so it would prove to be as the Demons literally fell over the line at the end, by a solitary point. In an almost complete replica of the Richmond v Collingwood game two nights previously, one of the sides (Melbourne in this case) rushed out to a five goal lead in the first quarter, while the Blues failed to bother the goal umpir

    EXPOSED FORM by The Oracle

    Carlton fancies itself to beat Melbourne at Marvel Stadium on Saturday and, based on exposed form, why not? The Blues took it right up to the reigning premiers in their last up start and the Demons were simply horrible against the Eagles at Optus Stadium. That opening game of the season revived all of the nightmares of 2019 for a team that went inside the 50 metre arc 45 times, an advantage of 10 times over the home side and yet lost by almost five goals. Such statistics sum it up for a gam

    SOCIAL DISTANCING by George on the Outer

    It was good to see the MFC players practicing the directives about social distancing at the game against West Coast.  Pity was that they continued to do so after the first bounce of the ball, as they allowed numerous WCE players run around un-hindered, with not a Melbourne player within 1.5 metres of them! They then found themselves looking at nearly a 5 goal deficit at the first break, which was to be essentially the final margin for the game. It is difficult to judge exactly what is going

    BEST IN SHOW by Whispering Jack

    I am writing this knowing that the AFL has deemed that the opening round of competition will proceed but fully believing that it should not.  The world is going through cataclysmic change as a result of the overwhelming spread of the Covid-19 virus and I agree that a distraction like sport would be good for the public. However, while the physical threat to the population is bad enough, there are other  issues to be addressed including the mental health of the community and the effects on th
