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.

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.

    QUEENS BIRTHDAY BLOCKBUSTER by Bananabender

    A little known fact for Victorians is that Queenslanders don’t celebrate the Queen's Birthday in June but rather in October. The scheduled date on this year’s calendar is 5 October, 2020. However, I have a suggestion for Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk and that is to move the date forward a month and a half to this Saturday so that the coming clash of traditional rivals, Melbourne and Collingwood, continues a longstanding tradition of our game — the Queen’s Birthday Blockbuster.

    THE TORRENS THUMPING 2.0 by George on the Outer

    Once again the banks of Adelaide’s Torrens River witnessed the Melbourne Football Club handing out another on-field thumping to its opponent. This time the hapless victim was North Melbourne and given it was only the club’s second win against them since 2007, it was a very satisfying outcome. The Demons got off to a slow start once again, looking listless from their four day break, a situation that wasn’t helped by Sam Weideman and Christian Petracca missing easy set shots. At the first bre

    THE 2020 EQUATION by Whispering Jack

    The 2020 equation is simple for the Melbourne Football Club – it must keep winning and it must take some big scalps during the second half of the season without dropping games against the lesser lights. The Demons have gone down this season to the 1st, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th teams on the ladder including twice by less than a goal in games that could easily have gone the other way. Against that, they have beaten 11th, 13th, 14th and 18th and though they thumped the Crows during the week, the

    THE TORRENS THUMPING by George on the Outer

    THE TORRENS THUMPING - LEAVING THE DEMONS BEHIND That headline might lead a reader to think that Melbourne had lost badly in Adelaide but no!  It was actually the MFC which left it’s demons from the previous week behind as it applied the blowtorch to the Crows in the final quarter of their match at the Adelaide Oval and went on their merry way to record a 51 point win before their biggest crowd of the year (even if they were mainly hostile). Much had been made in the media about t

    STATE OF DEESASTER by the Oracle

    Melbourne’s circus caravan rolls into Adelaide on Wednesday night, an event that will put shivers up the spine of every Crows’ supporter as they look directly into the face of disaster. The flakey Demons left their home town a month ago and proceeded to rough up the Gold Coast Suns and Hawthorn in Sydney before moving on to the sunny Queensland where they missed by a bee’s diaphragm against the more or less local second-on-ladder Brisbane Lions. Then, they had to butter up against the top t

    OVERPOWERED by George on the Outer

    In a dismal display against Port Adelaide, Melbourne showed it had learnt nothing from their previous week’s loss to Brisbane. Port, in contrast, after losing to St.Kilda, addressed their failings, and as a result made the Demons look like a second-rate side.  Melbourne failed to score a goal in the first quarter, and the first time it seriously troubled the goal umpire was saved until a minute before half-time.  Did it get any better?  No with their meagre three goals for the sec

    DESPERATION OF THE MOMENT by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne’s recent win against Hawthorn highlighted how important Max Gawn’s ruck domination is for the team. A week later however, that domination continued but its effect was totally blunted by the Brisbane Lions midfield and, as a consequence, what could have been an easy win over a leading AFL contender turned into a disappointing but close loss and a sense of desperation now looms over the club as the halfway mark of the season approaches. This week’s opponent in Port Adelaide also und

    THE FOUR POINT FAIL by George on the Outer

    Melbourne went down by 4 points in a thrilling finish against Brisbane, but they failed by more than the 4 points.     They also failed to score the 4 points necessary to keep them in the race for the finals, and now find themselves sitting 6 points outside the top 8, but effectively 2 games outside (even though they have a game in hand).   The Demons had more than enough opportunities to win.  Six very easy shots on goal failed to bother the goal umpire with a major and ultimate

    NORTH OF THE BORDER PART 2 by The Oracle

    The travelling COVID circus moves north of the border yet again and, unless at some time in the near future, Papua New Guinea opens its borders, this could be the last time this phenomenon happens. And as fortune would dictate, the resurgent Demons are walking directly into the sights of the locals from the bright lights of Brizvegas to Carrara - the scene of some long-forgotten (and deservedly so) battles with one of the Lions’ former incarnations, namely, the Brisbane Bears.

    ON THE NOSE by George on the Outer

    One of the Hawthorn Football Club’s valued sponsors is Azep® Nasal Spray and given the thrashing handed out to the Hawks in today’s game, it would appear that they need a huge supply of the sponsor’s product because they are simply on the nose. This condition was caused by the sheer dominance of the Demons, led magnificently by skipper Max Gawn with 27 hitouts and 22 disposals including two clearances. Around him in the middle were Christian Petracca with 29 touches, Clayton Oliver (also on

    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,
