Bartlett, Pert, et al



Recommended Posts

Been pretty silent so far this season...

Should they make some sort of statement or comment on the state of affairs?

Or is there nothing to see here...

Are people in these positions best not seen nor heard?

Glen "Frank Drebin" Bartlett.

Whether you like Pert or not, he has a record of both action and inaction. Moved Malthouse on when it was the unpopular decision, proved to be the correct call, genuine crackpot that butchered hi

Melbourne boss Glenn Bartlett backs coach Simon Goodwin to turn around disastrous season

Glenn  Bartlett has backed in his football department to turn around a  disastrous season, adamant the club will push for finals until all hope  is lost.

The Melbourne president said today there would be no thought given to  shutting down injured players with early surgeries, adamant the season  was not yet lost.

He said the club did not need a review of its operations or football  department despite the deeply disappointing 3-9 start to the year.

Tell me he did not say 1000 per cent, and that it was just a typo, please.

Oh yeah, as you explain it the fact he came out and said something is enough for you. That is the way it goes at MFC. Lets not put any pressure on the coach because we just resigned him.

We're lacking some talented players...  still in build mode even though  we played finals last year.

We've been decimated with injury,  and has shown a lack of quality & experienced depth.

Outside of one handful of senior players,  we are very young & inexperienced.

 

We must continue to build on what w have on the list. with kids and experience. .. eg...  Ed Langdon.  Coniglio.

As Bartlett said they are not going to panic and rightly so, but you can panic away to your hearts content, the weak way to go.

Please alert me to my statement that alluded to me panicking.

Maybe because he is not getting the best out of the players.

Maybe because all the other teams have worked out our game plan

Maybe because we are near bottom of the ladder.

From Olisks post:

Bartlett: “But I have spent a bit of time in the footy department, which I hadn’t before, spent a day down there..."

That he has done this for the first time in the six years he has been at the club says he is worried.  Not panicked but worried.

A review doesn't mean having some external people coming in looking over people's shoulders.  Pert has fresh eyes and is very capable of undertaking a review.  Pert has said he has spent a lot of time in player and football department meetings. 

I suggest a 'review' is already happening by Pert.  As I've said for sometime I will be shocked if we don't have football department structure and assistant coach changes.

So by putting pressure on the coach that will all automatically:

Get the best out of our players.

Out work other teams game plans

And maybe rise up the ladder the last 10 weeks..

Did i get that all right??

Yes, great point about Barlett just now spending time in the footy dept. This post is a keep for me and will ne interesting to look back on the truth of our bye week non review later in the year.

I do not follow your logic and the way you add words to change a post. Where did the word"automatically come from, as in automatically get the best out of the players" from you, not me. You also do not understand the subtleties of pressure. It could be as simple as having a coffee and saying to Goodwin, have you considered this or that. You seem to confuse pressure with more extreme words like ultimatum or strong arm tactics. As I said I find your way of arguing against the spirit of the posts. I  will not respond to you again. Same goes for drysdale.

Sounds like Goodwin who thought we didn't need to review the prelim.

Glenn, we need a review...

I would be very surprised if there are not changes made after this season on the back of a review.

So the plan is to keep playing injured players till the end of the season then put them in for surgeries from which they will come back not quite ready for round one.

Groundhog day.

Bartlett said the club, led by new chief executive Gary Pert, was now  bulletproof to on-field fortunes, about to crack through 52,000 members  and with a new investment committee considering long-term financial  opportunities.

So i am not going near the infighting that this thread has already sparked, but does this quote strike anyone else as being just a bit OTT?

How can we possibly be "bullet proof to on-field fortunes???

Any club (but especially one like ours with a small membership base and terrible 50+ year history of non-success) can suffer a huge financial drop-off with a sudden reversal of fortunes like we have seen so far this year. He is telling us it doesn't matter what happens on-field, that we are going to be fine as a club. If membership plummets next year we dont have to worry? Awesome, i will keep my money in my pocket next year if it doesnt matter. Gives me some extra to spend on Diazepam so i can watch our games.

Sorry Glen, that is some shocking hyperbole on your part.

    WASH, RINSE, SPIN, REPEAT! by George On The Outer

    Although the Demons got over the line in their must win final round game against the hapless Bombers, they ensured it was Groundhog Day for their supporters who well remember what happened three years ago (although, this time they at least enjoyed the success of victory). Melbourne had its customary start dominating play and having plenty of chances in front of goal, only to find itself down on the scoreboard at the first change. Inaccurate kicking, particularly from set shots would have pu

    THE LUCK OF THE DRAW by Whispering Jack

    The long awaited clash between Melbourne and Essendon is almost upon us. Thirty-seven rounds of AFL football have passed by since the two clubs met on a balmy early April night last year in a game that produced a high scoring shootout at the MCG with the Bombers prevailing by 18 points. It was their only meeting for 2019 and happened at a time when the pandemic was something on the far distant horizon. Several months later when the 2019 season ended, the AFL issued the first of its fixtures

    THERE’S STILL A HEARTBEAT by George on the Outer

    When bottom side Adelaide scrapped together a win over the Giants last week, a tiny glimmer of hope opened up for the Demons’ finals chances. The patient was in intensive care but not quite finished — there was a faint pulse, a heart beating ever so slightly but was it enough when two more wins and other results were needed to fall their way? The first step was the resuscitation of a team that had lost its last two matches against sides then sitting fifteenth and sixteenth on the ladder. On

    THE FINAL HUMILIATION by The Oracle

    On Sunday, the Melbourne Football Club that won three consecutive games by in excess of 50 points last month returns to the Gabba, the scene of the last of those victories which was a 56 point drubbing of Collingwood. The Demons got off to a good start and won every quarter with a ruthless and powerful brand of football. They kicked 16 goals that day, their accuracy in front of goal a tribute to the skills the put on display throughout the afternoon and evening. In the four matches playe

    GIVEN THE OLD HEAVE HO’ by George on the Outer

    Fremantle gave Melbourne the old heave ho’ from playing finals in 2020, in conditions that the Demons yet again failed to handle.   With the whole season on the line and the need to win to stay in contention for finals, what the fans saw was much the same as they have been witnessing so many times before — a complete debacle and capitulation against a side that sat 15th on the ladder before the game.     Promises made after the loss to the 16th placed Sydney Swans were rendered h

    GETTING THE HEAVE HO by Bananabender

    The ute barely made it up to Cairns in time for us to check into the motel, fling a cane toad out the bathroom. and head over to Cazaly’s Stadium where we took up our position on the wing. There, we saw a completely different Melbourne to the one we watched on the screen only a few nights earlier from Alice Springs. This lot wore similar colours and Maxy dominated the ruck but the similarities ended there - the Demons were simply dreadful against the Swans. They started sluggishly, were spe

    A CLANGER IN CAIRNS by George on the Outer

    Having fought back into finals contention, the Demons had it all before them when facing a lowly Sydney in Cairns.  But in typical Melbourne fashion, they threw away the opportunity to cement their spot in the eight with a clanger of a game.  Right from the start, there was little to enthuse from the Melbourne players, who appeared to think that they only had to turn up, enjoy the North Queensland sun, and take away the four points.  Compared with the furious ground wide pressure of the

    TEN MINUTES LATE by Whispering Jack

    The late Norm Smith, who played in four Melbourne premierships and coached another six, was a strong disciplinarian. Known as the Red Fox for his auburn hair and his cunning, Smith was a man of a different age to the here and now. Born during the Great War, he survived the Spanish Flu Pandemic, grew up in depression times, played mostly through the Second World War and its aftermath and coached in a period of rebuilding and recovery to a time of prosperity. Smith’s success was built on team

    SAINTS HELL IN DEES HEAVEN by GOTO

    The last of this year’s indigenous games was played in the red heart of the country and could well have determined Melbourne’s finals aspirations but it was St Kilda that had its top four hopes dashed after a nail-biting finish in Alice Springs which saw them unceremoniously marched out of the position in football heaven occupied by them for much of this season. It all came down in the end to a goal-line decision as to whether a freakish shot by Christian Petracca was touched and the goal u

    DO OR DIE by The Oracle

    Melbourne is, not for the first time, paying for lapses in matches whereby the club leaks multiple goals without answer and which usually cost the club in those all-important eight point games as it did last week against the Western Bulldogs which replaced the Demons in the AFL top eight. And this week, they come up against a team that reputedly plays in the same mode as the Bulldogs but has been able to prevail over better opponents than Melbourne. It’s not that the Demons are out of form

    GIVE THE DOGS A BONE by George on the Outer

    The winner of the game is in the top eight and the loser out. Had Melbourne won, it would have consigned the Bulldogs season to the scrapheap given their remaining fixture which still includes a bye. The Demons led at half-time but they gave the Dogs a bone which was willingly accepted — they notched 6 goals in the third quarter and dumped the Demons out of the eight. This game simply saw all the bad habits return for Melbourne players.  When they serve up dinky kicks, dinky handballs, litt

    FRENZY by Whispering Jack

    The Melbourne Football Club should hand out an award to the person who came up with the concept of the 20 day football frenzy the football world experienced from Round 9 to the completion of Round 12 on Monday. When the AFL fixture was moved into a state of perpetual motion, things changed so quickly that it was difficult to fathom exactly what was happening to the competition but the Demons have been one of the beneficiaries to date. The flogging the team received at the hands of Port Adel
