Sack everyone (mega-thread)

Recommended Posts

Wasn't Troy Chaplain our forward Coach last season and before in 2017?

Last year our forward entries with Hoges we're rush rush rush and chaotic no system, and now it's no better!

Rawlings May be better but deserves his role at Casey  and Plapp  is midfield I think. 

Need a changeover like Tigers or Saints as most  of Roosy's  staff are still safely in trust (too safely me thinks).

I have said it before and again I believe Gary Lyon (yes ha helped give us Neeld and Bails)  should be on board for match day in the box and perhaps greater.

Has the  sharpest brain in footy these days snd knows the tricks and ways to utilise the players best attributes.

Defence cost us in First Quarter not helped by lack of pressure from midland forwards.

I think Oscar played his worst game last night and Petty (not Kelty) deserve the opportunity to claim that position till the injured return and beyond if he shows his true ability.

FWIW thought Hibbo returned to some form and Nev got back on track last night.

It's also so one dimensional to just punch someone must mark the ball and get it moving to create tun and carry to out forwards.

Hibberd was pathetic. Butchered it by foot and is now running on the spot. He will be gone at years end.

Mathews ...stoppages

McPherson... Football operations.

A lot of people are Not Roos' people ;)

Hird should never be allowed near any sport EVER again.

Lyon has done enough for us...he can stop.

Oscar is one of the most lethargic footballers I’ve ever seen- he looks half asleep and his body language would suggest he doesn’t care. Very little effort is made by him. Frost puts in and looks like he cares but is hopeless to the point of being a lost cause - zero footy smarts. He has taken ineptitude to a new level. Sale is our sole functional back.

Both Matthews and Mac P are!

Chaplsin was employed by Roosy but we need new ideas from successful other Clubs ex staff.

Thats What Tigers and Oies and now Saints have done.

Assistants  need to  get into Goodys head snd bslabce his game plan.

Idmf Matthews hasstoppages then that's my point. Need new plans as another post sums it up All our mids chase the man ( and the ball) and leave no outside runners to carry!

And criminally the opposition has a clear path to hsbdpass and get their game going without pressure!

Pies did it QB and Eagles in Prelim and again this year it's happening.!

Got to stop!!!

Chaplin was not a Roos choice..theres a difference.  He was a Goodwin selection. Roos allowed Goodwin to assemble his own team.

In the end...any of the assistants are only there to do the coach's bidding

But when did Chaplin actually start? Or is it more the crap has started since Rawlings left..

Im not normally one for the throw the baby out with the bath water but I agree

I was at the game and our defensive structure were pathetic... continually leaving open men inside their F50 and guarding no one.

It was an embarrassing shambles

Surely Jade Rawlings can be seconded back to the AFL side to straighten our backline out whilst we sort out a full time replacement for Chaplin.  I know we want the Casey guys to be well coached and get right development, but the AFL takes precident in my view.

Furthermore, I understand that Rawlings probably has senior coaching ambitions of his own, but it seemed incredibly half baked to move him out of his function as backline coach at such a key juncture of our development.

I knew what we were getting when he as an MFC paid employee wore a Richmond scarf to the entire 2017 finals series and carried on like their number 1 fan boy.

I raised this at the time and people here said that club employees can support who they like and that he had played with the Toiges so it was fine for him to support them. I am still staggered that people can feel this way. He is either with us, or with them. Move him on.

Too many loose rinning entries into our Defence makes life unbearable for defenders.

I felt sorry for Frosty who had a horrible night , but you could see on his face and Body language he was dreading the ball coming into his area. To be beaten by blokes half his size in marking contests does not really cut it.

WHen we have three players running in to tackle the ball carrier . Blind freddy could see that there are 2 spare people hanging around in the medium viciiivty i.e NcD-T , Smith McKenna < Zahaha and the list goes on. TWO WAY RUNNING IS REQUIRED.

We stumbled into the finals last year, then played a couple of blinders.  That’s it!!  Our list is overrated and and this club cannot get away from been an easy team to beat.  Supporters are in despair.  

Agree that Rawlings should still be backline coach, I sense something is wrong in the coaching ranks.  McCartney needs to mentor Goodwin and settle it all down.  

For the first time I am seeing Goodwin under real pressure.

But that’s always how it appears when coaches are crap. Omac and frost took us into the prelim .....6 months ago!  They didn’t have operations either. Whatever has happened since then has sent them backwards at a huge pace. Imo it’s gotta have something to do with Troy. The first quater last night was truly lamentable...imo the most disorganised and comical We’ve  looked down back since 2013. I was shocked. Yes it got better after that but whatever plan they’re attempting to implement clearly isn’t working. 

Oscar played on Jack Henry (a defender) and Ceglar (a ruck). You put him on forwards who do nothing and he'll do nothing wrong.

Frost played on Hawkins and we gave him enough cover. Then Roughead who threatened to get us a few times.

Then once they came up against good forwards in the Prelim both got scorched alive.

But that's only half the story, the other half is the midfield and forward line. Against the Cats and Hawks we saw Viney and Harmes put on a pressure clinic. Harmes is trying, Viney is hopefully building. Plus Clarry won a stack of it and Gus was so good against the Cats he was tagged by the Hawks. Big Max dominated as well. All those guys aren't at the same level. Same thing on the wing where Vanders crashed and bashed especially the Cats, Jones was a preseason younger and fresher and Tyson did enough as a fit runner. Not to mention the forward line, the biggest change there is that T Mc has gone from a star to a hobbled mess.

With the problems in our midfield a Rance and McGovern backline probably still gives up 14 goals last night but we win if they do. We probably win if we give up 16 goals with just capable efforts because our midfield was so bad we're giving up 100 to most teams. It's the couple of easy contests that Frost and Oscar give up here or there that turn it to 20 goals that killed us.

The midfield is a problem at the moment but McKernan kicking 4, on one leg for a substantial part of the game.

A VFL forward against a VFL level defence, you could just tip it to happen.

In fact I did to an EFC supporting mate...this will be one of those games he looks like a real footballer as we have no tall defenders.

The only surprise to me was that Zac Clarke didn't kick 4 as well.

    THE YEAR THE SKY FELL by The Oracle

    After a number of years of linear movement up the ladder, the Melbourne Football Club unexpectedly went into serious decline in 2019, slumping from fourth to 17th in a season that coach Simon Goodwin described “a complete wipe-out”. Those around the club who tried to analyse the apocalyptic events that unfolded during the year were hard pressed to find a single reason for the debacle but the most plausible explanation was that the club’s troubles stemmed from a lack of fitness and injuries that

    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

    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!

    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?

    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
