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.

DV8 might have been making a pointed statement about the stupidity of this topic.....

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.

He is not. He has a game plan that I know the players don’t believe in. Look at the last quarter. They have actually given up.

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.

    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

    CHANGES 2019 by The Oracle

    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 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. It was a disgraceful performance, which started with a disgracefu

    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? As a consequence, the person re

    A LITTLE RAY OF SUNSHINE by KC from Casey

    Two clubs that have been hard hit by injury recently took part in a dour battle under dark clouds and, with intermittent showers falling, it wasn’t a pretty game at Victoria Park on Sunday. Despite all that, the Casey Demons added a little ray of sunshine to their day to get the job done over a "traditional" rival with a 15 point victory over Collingwood VFL that breathed life back into their season. There were a few highlights at the ground that in past days has seen many titanic batt

    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

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    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. We will be good in parts but really the season is well over so we will have to put up with those bell

    WHAT, NO BLOOD? by George on the Outer

    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. That should never have happ
