Goodwin signs on until end of 2022

Recommended Posts

I think you are are all asking far too much, when you combine unfulfilled early expectations that now have fallen by the wayside, with this team which is bloody young. We didn't start off like a lot of other scabby teams that sucked the AFL into giving them prime picks along with getting doubtful character older players who would go anywhere for a new start. I dare anyone to say we did. We virtually started again from "nihil" scratch. So if its not working at the moment tough pooperackers........ 

Because of our outspoken overwhelming opinions on young guns (and i use the opinion loosely, which the media rabble pick up and use against us, under the guise of a team of young champs, which they are not) we always seem to have a fall, as per pride etc etc....

Settle in for the ride now, or don't stick it out at all.

Yep.

How many successful coaches over the years have had some rough periods?  Clarkson, Bomber Thompson, Malthouse, Sheedy etc have all gone through tough patches that many thought they wouldn't survive.  Sometimes those periods came well into their coaching career as well.

Goody is still 'young' and the club knows what he is capable of.  This is his first, true test of how he can respond to a major challenge, and while it may take a little time, I think he needs the backing of the supporters to help him see it through.  He got a three year deal because he is the first coach in almost two decades to get us to a Prelim, and his ability to bond with the players and unite the team is to applauded.

Supporters can be too reactionary at times, which is why we are that - supporters.  I guess that's part of the role.  But the club will back him entirely to turn things around, and we should try to do the same.

Agree with one caveat- compete review of the assistant coaches at end of season- Goody needs better help than he is getting

I agree with that.  I do think we need a bit of a change outside of Goody.  

While I don't like to pot anyone who works for the club, I do think Misson moving on is a good thing.  He is highly regarded and we don't really know what goes on, but we do see plenty of injuries to players each year, so I think a fresh change there will be a positive.

You do realise the assistant coaches have all been appointed or re-appointed under Goodwin.

Would you agree that perhaps someone else needs to look at who should be appointed.

Goodwin has shown himself to be resistant to change. He needs to rethink his approach if we are to improve as a football club.

The real question is whether or not the second half of last year was a coaching aberration because the rest of his term has not been exactly star studded.

Of course I realise that.  What difference does it make?  He had every right to do it, seeing as though we made a Prelim.  At that point there was no need to make a change.

BUT... obviously what we have mapped out and planned hasn't exactly gone the way they would have expected, and therefore he can begin to think about a few of those aspects.

If that's the case...or...no change in fortunes, then we have learnt absolutely nothing and the legacy of Jackson and Roos will have been totally flushed down the toilet.

 

It is not something we are unfamiliar with bb. Situation normal.

No point in staking Goodwin at this stage. He needs some fresh blood around him.

Crazy idea, but why doesn’t Melbourne employ Roos again on some part time consultation basis? I saw better performances in most of 2016 than I have seen all this year. 

It's not that crazy BoG.  If we lose against the Tiges i would say it's a necessity.  An objective review of the entire FD and list wouldn't hurt at all regardless, especially post 666!

C'mon @DeeZee, there is media speak, and there is how he talks to the players in the organisation on a daily basis. There is no way it's one and the same.

Further to that - every single coach has their own version of a methodology  - hence it will be the same message, expressed in a range of different ways.

How Goodwin presents to the media forum, is clearly not how it is amongst the players.

I would target Adam Yze. I would also get Rob Jackson to take over the fitness side of things. The umpires never break down!

I would bloody well hope so.

Goodwin has never struck me as the type of inspirational coach who can pluck clever words out of thin air to "Gee" his team up. My opinion is based on nothing more than what I have seen during his many media interviews. Boring, monotone, cliche-laden and repetitive is how he comes across in the media. I feel less informed every time I watch one of his interviews.

Out of range of the media microphones, i hope he is a very different beast.

One goal after quarter time.  Two goalless quarters. (not counting that last goal as its worthless)

Five goalless quarters in 6 games.

Season on the line at 3 quarter time and folded like  deck of cards.

 

Bye bye Simon, and take the rest of your useless coaching staff with you.

It's disgusting Petraccattack. No other way to describe.

The entire football club needs to held to account. Need to undertake an independent review of the entire club.

Gone back 6 years in the space of 6 months.

I don't think 1 bad year sinks Goody.

Sorry kids.... But it's a good test of how much of a basket case we actually are.

Recent history has seen 

Tigs, Pies, Saints, Pooort and even the Bloos all hold and improve after poor displays.

Will be interesting to see what happens at Norf

Thats right,  'UH'......   '666'  helps all of them...  all the quick running sides > cats.

But Port are a front running outside type team.

Modern tigers built for the mobile running style, these  days.

Saints becoming a pressure, and attacking running team.

........................................

 

We've built up our contested area, apart from recent form...

We have placed a few Key position spine areas,  which isn't showing itself right now.

We have about half of our midfield sorted,  lacking the Bartlel type, and a Nigel Lappin type.

.

time to start recruiting the pieces...  cause 2019 is cooked, and 2020 beckons.

PS:   we have to look for our own Bartlel's and  Lappin's fromn the draft... no one is going to give us them.

More people should learn about Phil Jackson's coaching philosophy. He knew how to play the media, kept his cards close to his chest, and could stare you down from 1000 miles. Never said much, would occasionally show emotion, but he was called "The Zen" for a reason.

    GIANT HEADACHE by The Oracle

    It seems so long ago that Melbourne took an unchanged line up into a game on the MCG against the Greater Western Sydney Giants and cleaned them up to the tune of 45 points.  In truth, the event occurred literally half a season ago in the final home and away round of the 2018 season and marked the Demons’ return to the finals with more triumphs to come in the weeks ahead. Of course, back then, it was the Giants who were wracked with injuries as they stumbled into the finals series facing the

    LANDSLIDE by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons enjoyed the better of their first half against Port Melbourne on Saturday but fell away badly after half time to lose by 43 points. The Borough enjoyed the early break with the game’s opening two goals but the Demons took control to go out to an 8 point lead at quarter time, an advantage that it held for most of the second term until a late goal to the visitors clawed the lead back to a point.  The Casey ruck of Braydon Preuss and Liam Wale-Buxton were on top for most

    SHOULD HAVE ... COULD HAVE by George on the Outer

    West Coast finally put the nail in the Demons 2019 season coffin with a 16 point win, but it was a game that Melbourne should have, could have, but didn’t win. Once again woeful, truly woeful work in the forward line, both kicking for goal and the lazy, cheap efforts of some let the side down. A solitary goal in the final quarter and only 9 goals from 24+ scoring opportunities was the costly difference in the game. The selectors, once again, made a critical error in not selecting

    SCREAM by Whispering Jack

    The Norwegian Expressionist artist Edvard Munch painted a number of versions of his famous work “Scream” and, every time my mind goes back to last year’s Preliminary Final at Optus Stadium between Melbourne and the West Coast Eagles, each and every one of them reverberates through my mind as if my head is being pummeled by a sledgehammer.  When I think of that half time scoreboard from that match showing West Coast at 10.9.69 to Melbourne 0.6.6, I feel like the man standing by the railing,

    NOT GAWN IN 60 SECONDS by George on the Outer

    You might recall a regular segment that once featured on the MFC website entitled, “Gawn in 60 Seconds”, in which Maxy would ask the hard questions of his teammates. However, there was no harder question asked than the one asked collectively of the whole team in the last 60 seconds of Saturday’s game against the Gold Coast Suns.  It was either follow me and my example or the Demons’ season, already hanging flimsily by huuua thread, would be truly “Gorn”.  It was at that stage when thos

    BOILOVER by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons caused the boilover of the season to date when they took on and beat the undefeated ladder leaders Essendon VFL by 41 points at Windy Hill.  The stunning result which was achieved with a season low of eight AFL-listed players, will surely kickstart the Demons’ ailing season after they lost their last two matches as a result of some poor third quarter fade outs against quality opposition. Casey got off to a great start with a mid-air soccer volley goal from Jimmy Munro

    LITTLE RAY OF SUNSHINE by Whispering Jack

    There would be very few among us who would have thought realistically at the start of the season that by the time Melbourne’s Round 8 trip to the Gold Coast came around, the visitors would not only be languishing in 16th place on the ladder, but also be sitting a game behind their hosts. In fact, had the Suns managed to goal late in their opening game against the Saints which they lost by a mere point, the gap between the two sides would have been even wider. Such has been the humiliation o

    UNDERDOGS by KC from Casey

    Thanks to the large injury list at Melbourne, the Casey Demons went into their fifth round clash with Footscray VFL as the underdogs and despite a courageous showing up to half time after conceding the game’s first four goals, their third quarter fade out saw them fall short against quality opposition for the second time in a week. Casey went into the game with only 9 AFL listers after Declan Keilty was called up to make his debut when Tim Smith was forced to pull out of the Melbourne team

    IN THE PINK by George on The Outer

    A five point victory against the eternal nemesis in Hawthorn, didn’t put the Demons back in the black for the 2019 season ... but rather, it added a touch of pink to their fortunes, now showing some sign of life after an underwhelming start to the year. And pink was the most appropriate colour for the side and the supporters, given this game was the annual “Pink Ladies” match.  And none more so than this proud Demon fan who turned up to add his support to the cause and his team at the same

    EASIER SAID THAN DONE by The Oracle

    There is no way of getting around the fact that Melbourne is the disappointment team of the AFL competition and, because it came into the season as a big top four fancy and now sits stone motherless last with a 1-5 win-loss record, it is fast becoming a laughing stock.  The only way in which the Demons can restore any sense of pride, let alone its rapidly diminishing hopes of making the finals is for it to overcome Hawthorn on Saturday in the replay of last year’s preliminary final.

    POINT CRASH by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons went down by the narrowest of margins to a strong Richmond VFL combination in the Round 4 game at Casey Fields on Saturday after a rushed behind  to the Tigers in the game’s dying moments broke the deadlock. In a low scoring game, Casey took the early ascendency after conceding the first goal and held their lead for most of the first half going into the sheds at the main break with an 8 point lead. The Demons were led in defence by key position players, Oscar McDonald

    THE LAST POST by George on the Outer

    The Last Post sounded out in memory of the fallen around a packed MCG at the Anzac Eve match against Richmond. The silence of the crowd assembled was in tribute to those who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country. But the Last Post was also an appropriate symbol of the finals aspirations now gone for the Melbourne Football club, after a mere six rounds of the 2019 Season.   How far has this team fallen!  From a Preliminary final contestant barely six months ago, to cellar dwelle
