Gary Pert?

Strange how anyone could have doubts because he came from Collingwood.

Perhaps it suggests that old tribal loyalties still run deep, yet that is juxtaposed against the way supporters quickly embrace players from other clubs.

Any other comments from his time at Pieland are just rumour.  There are often critics when a person leaves an orgnanization, sometimes simply justification from those remaining.  

I think that it is remarkable that he lasted as long as he did at Pieland with Eddie. 

 

Talking personally, it's not that I have any professional concerns with him in that capacity and I agree entirely with your remarks on him leaving etc, doesn't really bother me and I thought the way he addressed that question in his interview with Wheatly was very convincing  (as he was on most topics).

It's more that because he was with Collingwood for so long and along with Eddy often had a very public and parochial pro Collingwood, stuff the rest of the competition stance on things it takes a bit to get that out of your head.  It will be a bit different at Melbourne, because obviously we don't quite have the same power base as he had at Collingwood, but thinking about what I just stated, I'm somewhat looking forward to now having him on our side and for GP going in to bat hard for the MFC.

Suit yourself. The Filth were on their knees and in massive debt when Pert was bought in. They are now living in thebuilding we should have taken...

We the MFC need to grow into the club we always should have been. 

Pert has the CV to do that

Were they?

From my recollection, Pert was brought in after Carlton poached Greg Swann. At that time Collingwood had just made the finals in 2006 and would go onto play a preliminary final in 2007. They were hardly on their knees.

What Pert did that was correct was  build on the success that had proceeded him and add to the infrastructure development that had started in 2003. Remember that in 2010/2011 that Collingwood was a bloody behemoth: on and off the field. They won games, they had 70k watching them every home game, they had a sparkling set of facilities in the CBD and contacts in the corporate world that would make a 'privileged' club like ours turn the color of Kermit the Frog's armpit. Not all of that can be explained away and a proportion of that should be attributed to him.

However, we shouldn't rewrite history either.

SWYL, I seem to recall you have a tv industry background.  Any interaction with Pert when he was MD of channel 9 in Melbourne?

@rpfc, you sound like an old melbournian upset at losing guaranteed board seats whenever you wanted them.  I’m happy those days are gone.  I personally think the board and Bartlett have been excellent.  He was spot on when he labelled MFC soft on and off the field in his first speech 5 years ago. MFC is no longer soft in either.  Everything done by MFC in the last 5 years has been about losing that soft gentlemen club tag, game style, list management, player trades.  I can’t imagine prior boards approving tough decisions like trading Watts.  For me the Pert appointment is just another decision where the soft option would have been an internal appointment.  Only time will tell if Pert delivers which will be almost entirely measured by delivering a facility in the MCG precinct, which he is uniquely qualified to do.

No Pert was only at GTV for a very short time. I think that is where he and Eddie met up, but it could have been Austereo as well. 

Pert has run big organizations. That is what we need right now. 

Josh Mahoney will be an excellent candidate in years to come. But he is very smart to keep learning right now.

I thought Pert Came to The Filth with Eddie and Malthouse. If i am wrong i stand corrected

His decision to give Goodwin a three year extension on the eve of the season is just another in the long list of erratic captain's calls that saw him sacked at the Pies.

I’m no fan of Pert yet..but that’s a harsh call. Goody fully deserved that extension and I’m 100% glad he got it.

Could our losses be Gary Pert's fault? We were winning, Pert comes on board and suddenly we're 0-3. Also, he leaves Collingwood and they play in a GF and look even better now.

He was out of contract at years end so we extended fr 3. The last thing we would need as a club now would be speculations his position, he’s a good coach but his choice of backline coach is admittedly a poor one

Extended for three to make four. I agree he shou;dn't be in any danger yet, but what say we finish bottom four? And start next year the same way? The club can't afford to pay him out. Our financial position is built on six careful years of the Jackson administration slowly building modest profits. Talk of 70k is ludicrous, let alone the 50 they wanted this year. We have only reached 45 and that's coming off a prelim.

How many coaches must this club go through?  Goody is the best we have had in years.  He needs some help because Chaplin is woeful.  The players must take responsibility.

Would it have hurt to wait until round 6 to give him an extension? Because right now we look pretty ordinary. 

Also unless Pert is doing a Schwabb and getting involved in football matters, his job has zero to do with our appalling form. He ain’t playing FB last time I checked.

Is Pert the latest Trojan Magpie tactically sent from the underground labrotary at Vic Park to destabilize the MFC (akin to previous agent MICKMALT2012)?!?

Probably not, we are just massively underprepared for this season.

No. In fact common sense my have dictated such. Wait a minute..common sense, silly me.

Mr G wasn't going anywhere as such and a clever operator would have kept his powder dry.

No overly impressed with this Pert. Seems to eager to rush things...good recipe for f#@&ing things up often.

Yes Jaded, pretty ordinary ..and seemingly by design :(

In seriousness I don't see our problems having anything to do with Pert. We're simoly in poor form.

I'm happy the club has backed in Goodwin and the challenges the team is experiencing will make us better. Both Hardwick and Buckley coaches sides were underperforming and under enormous pressure but their coubs backes them in and Richmond wone a premiership while Collingwood played in one last year amd looking the goods 3 rounds in. 

Be patient fellow Demons.

No not directly.

It was Pert who signed ( re-signed ) Goodwin with unnecessary haste.

You could have Jesus and his old man in the backline, still wouldn’t make a difference if the head coach keeps on insisting on playing turtles on the wing.

Best piece of advice in this Demonland this season.

Pert clearly has the ability and is in the job fir the right reasons.

And again don't go crazy because he had ideas and plans.

That's  what he is an empire  builder and like Rome it all takes time even our onfield  woes are not overnight changing (thought our best footy by far in 2019 and our attacking style with Clarry Gus and Trac leading the way last night yes defence terrible at times).

But to say the footy results and form are Perty 's fsult is simply scapegoating scandiously. Ops and  limited pre season fitness are one reason and form another and the coaches failure to move with the times and change some of our game plans are reasons for 0-3.

If we can sneak Saints and Swans then Anzac Eve is HUGE vs underdone and Tigers starting to doubt their depth and Club culture and game brand.

From all reports he was getting involved in footy matters at Collingwood and was very decisive.

Look, I understand the frustration given a 0-3 start. But let's be honest here, the CEO should be assessed based on off field performance more than on field. Coaching is up in the air, and yes, he has a hand in that part of the business. But from the outside looking in the club has record membership numbers, good sponsors and minimal off field issues since he has taken over.

Can’t agree with this. We’ve had a revolving door of coaches in recent history and some continuity in this area was always needed. Goody is a good coach although I’m worried about his selection of a defensive coach at this stage. Goody can’t stop players fumbling the ball and making wildly poor decisions. At some point it simply comes down to the players.

    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 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

    THE BRIGHT SIDE by Whispering Jack

    I don’t often agree with Dermott Brereton but he came close to the mark last week when he labelled Melbourne a “team of downhill skiers” that works much harder offensively than it does defensively.  And he was looking at the bright side of the team’s game plan. That proposition has been clear since before the season started. It was obvious from the first JLT game against Richmond when the team leaked multiple goals in a short space of time as players gave metres away to opposition forwards.
