Is Goodwin the right guy....

Excellent post PD, couldn't agree more. I'm not surprised the most vocal of the know-it-all Goodwin bashers have either disappeared from this thread or want it closed down

I think the black and white thinking of some posters is hilarious. Like we should either love or hate Goodwin, like he can either coach or he can't. To my thinking, I was critical of our appointment of Goodwin largely due to his role in the Essendon saga. It is an individual thing how a person views others who have a role in compromising the health of young men. In my eyes Goodwin is slowly redeeming himself. In the eyes of others the Essendon saga (and the idea of doping players to achieve success) probably isn't a big deal. Goodwin has had to win fans over, and that is exactly how it should be IMO. The perception of Goodwin in my eyes is starting to change.

Goodwin is totally loyal to his players, has continued in the momentum we have and he has a clear focus.

His game plan revolves around winning contested ball , tackling and quick ball movement. He has been pretty clear on this, so when we lose, it’s pretty clear why.

He will no doubt be disappointed in the efforts and development of some over the season and as we have seen he has no fear of addressing that. So I expect list changes and maybe a few surprises.

Weideman, Spargo and Fritch have all been blooded and at times shown real promise. AVB back towards the end was also positive.

I feel  from here on in there will be few passengers in any week ,on the Goodwin train. Doesn’t matter who you are.

Its been a good season for us ,but l’m in Goodwins camp to take another step next year.

Cant wait for 2019

He did it with Watts last year and did it well.

I reckon Dom Tyson will take the arrow this year.

Thanks.  Agree with all except Oscar. He still has upside and was identified as a development player I reckon when Dunn was let go.

We spend more time at a game discussing Petracca than any other player and 2019 will be a make or break year IMO in regard to his consistency and reaching potential - consistently.

Suited us when Roos was building a low scoring, defensive team, but the emergence of the current midfield has meant that he's been left behind

Oscar can look good, but moves like barge

If he has no support from others, shows zero leadership in taking it upon himself to nullify a damaging opposition forward

Petracca...is.....dunno

0 goals to half time in a Prelim Final. 

Changes must be made. 

Clever changes

This is a certainty.

I wouldn't be surprised if he isn't on an AFL list next year.

He'll definitely be on a list, but i dont think it will be Melbourne. 

Plenty of developing clubs could use him as an inside midfielder right about now. Carlton, GC, St Kilda are just prime examples.

One is from a reasonable source, one is conjecture. I'll let you work out which is which but you can put them both down to opinions.

    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
