GAMEDAY: Rd 12 vs Collingwood

Recommended Posts

It's so sad what has happened to our forward structures.... Clearly we are 6 months behind the rest of the comp when it comes to how to set up and move the ball with the new rules.

May Lever, Hore and Hibberd have been our best players.

Midfield is by far the laziest in the competition.

Outside of the Neeld era this is the worst coached MFC team I've ever seen.

Rubbish. Bailey was an awful coach. 1999, 2001 and 2003 were much worse than 2019.

But yes Goodwin has been found out. Most coaches don't recover from this degradation, not this early in their careers.

The problem is our forward line have no confidence.

Just look at De Goey and Stephenson , and then look at Petracca and TMac.

Petracca is full of brashness off the field but has none on it.

5 goals in three quarters? FMD

Viney is a shadow of his former self. Take the captaincy off him and make him become a competent footballer before making him lead.

Placing all our chips on Tmac is a good as investment as Enron. What a disaster.

anyone who thinks this list is not the problem is delusional. More spuds than a Thorpedale Sunday market....

We would have more chance of building  our HQ there DP.  Very fitting!

We could be bottom of the ladder this time next week

I was thinking the same thing after the Blues win. I can't even say with any confidence that we will win when we play them.

The worst thing about it is that Goody doesn't even know that he's been found out. So he's ignorantly plodding along, blaming everything on injuries (only partly responsible), connection etc, so he doesn't work on his gameplan, or bring someone in with some footy IQ.

Trac has been good when given a go in the midfield.

Why not point the finger at our rabble of a captain in Jack Viney who has touched it 11 times.

Trac 2 solid qrts ....Poor Viney has gone bacwards too.

Same issues ever week. Shocking F50 entries. Forward entries aren’t even to a 50/50. Would hate to be a forward for Melbourne.

If Goodwin does his pathetic little speech after the game and sends it out I’ll throw up. Time to put his coaching career under the spotlight. We can’t waste all this talent any longer.

Thats why Weideman needs to play out the year in the seniors.

There is potential and shows glimpses.

I’ve said it before and will say it again. Goodwin can’t coach. Been told by someone in the afl that he is still struggling not having the runner out there like last year and can’t adapt to it. Met with afl just a few weeks to discuss it...

Thats about all I can muster.

Rather go and enjoy the rest of my Monday.

Nothing left to say about this team anymore that hasnt been said.

Coaches and players have a hell of a lot to answer for...

Trac is the only one showing some energy and intent. Can’t understand the negativity towards him. TMac is the one that makes my blood boil, along with many others.

That’s why, last 2-3 weeks he refuses to have a shot. Takes the pressure of himself.

Totally agree, it's criminal that he doesn't get anywhere near as much game time as he should because the I50 delivery is atrocious.

Nope, Bailey could win at the G occasionally with a more inferior list (on paper). 

Goody has taken us from something verging on chocolates to one of the worst teams in the AFL with a better list in the space of 8 months.  With a crash bash play on at all costs (numbers at the ball) game style which makes it almost impossible to win against any oppositon on our home turf.

    SOCIAL DISTANCING by George on the Outer

    It was good to see the MFC players practicing the directives about social distancing at the game against West Coast.  Pity was that they continued to do so after the first bounce of the ball, as they allowed numerous WCE players run around un-hindered, with not a Melbourne player within 1.5 metres of them! They then found themselves looking at nearly a 5 goal deficit at the first break, which was to be essentially the final margin for the game. It is difficult to judge exactly what is going

    BEST IN SHOW by Whispering Jack

    I am writing this knowing that the AFL has deemed that the opening round of competition will proceed but fully believing that it should not.  The world is going through cataclysmic change as a result of the overwhelming spread of the Covid-19 virus and I agree that a distraction like sport would be good for the public. However, while the physical threat to the population is bad enough, there are other  issues to be addressed including the mental health of the community and the effects on th

    TASSIE DEVILS by Van Demon

    If you were looking for something new from the Demons that wasn’t there last year, you didn’t have to look further than the perfectly trimmed grass surface of UTAS Stadium last night as the team steamrolled the Hawks to record a comprehensive 32-point victory to complete their Marsh Community Series commitments for 2020. One new thing was the fact that for the second Marsh game in a row, the team finished full of running and they dominated the second half without the presence or the dominan

    SOUTH OF THE BORDER by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons will go into their final Marsh Series match with a strong lineup against the Hawks in Tasmania. Both Max Gawn and Steven May, who were recovering from injuries in first Marsh Series match, have both been named. It is unclear whether Max will be on restricted minutes and will likely get breaks in the ruck with Sam Weideman and rookie Luke Jackson getting their turns in the middle. Angus Brayshaw will be getting his first taste of competitive football despite playing in last week’s

    KANGAROO CAUGHT by Whispering Jack

    There was a fair amount of debate in our area as to whether the game warranted a full blown match report because it was felt that it was really an elevated version of a training session with match simulation but against a team in opposition colours. Although notionally the stronger side, North seemed to be using the occasion for the purpose of working on aspects of their game plan, one of the features of which seemed to be based on taking the longest possible route out of defence and good luck w

    JUST AN ABERRATION by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne unveiled its top recruits with new fitness boss Darren Burgess and mid-sized bull Christian Petracca sharing top billing in the team’s Marsh Community Series opener in front of 3,095 football starved fans at Casey Fields and thousands of others watching on screens of various shapes and sizes.  What they saw was a different Melbourne to the one that failed to run out its JLT Series games last year and then crashed in a heap early in the season proper with performances lacking the z

    CROWDOWN by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons open their 2020 season account with a "home" game against the Adelaide Crows at Casey Fields. It’s been more than 5 and half agonising months for the team and supporters who are eager to atone for the disappointing 2019 season which saw the Dees go from Preliminary Finalist to 2nd bottom on the ladder. The preseason campaign has been a hard slog with the addition of respected High Performance Manager Darren Burgess. We caught a glimpse of the gut busting sessions in the Melbourne

    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

    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
