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?

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.

No review and we openly say we will continue to play injured players?  Jesus [censored] how is this guy in charge?

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.

Why do we need to put pressure on the coach??

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.

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.

    PANTSED BY THE PIES by George on the Outer

    A 41 point loss to Collingwood, combined with yet another meagre output from the Melbourne forwards, saw the Demons pantsed by the Collingwood in the Queens Birthday match. For the nth week in a row, Melbourne failed to produce a score that would trouble most sides - it’s inaccuracy alone was again enough to seal the outcome. If that final score of 7.15 were 15.7, the game would have been very different. That sort of output was exactly a repeat of the previous week against Adelaide, when fo

    TURNAROUND by KC from Casey

    It is truly amazing what a difference eight days can make in the life and times of a football club. It was a little over a week ago that the Casey Demons side were literally crushed into submission by the Werribee Tigers at Avalon Airport Oval. The losing margin in that game was not huge but the way they struggled to produce and cohesion in their play was obvious for all to see.  On Sunday at Casey Fields as part of heritage week, the team wore the Springvale FC jumper and made its own turn

    TEN YEARS AFTER by Whispering Jack

    There are many who would argue that Melbourne’s current woes go back a full decade to their Queens Birthday engagement of 2009 when the Demons selected a young VCE student Jack Watts to make his debut on the MCG in front of what was expected to be the club’s biggest crowd for a game described as the club’s “grand final in June”. That was the way of the world for the Dean Bailey coached Demons. The critics were skeptical of Melbourne’s decision to put a wet behind the ears schoolboy (albeit

    TOP END HEADING SOUTH by George on the Outer

    The Demons headed north for their annual game in Darwin, but the disappointing outcome could only mean they are heading south with the all too familiar failings happening again. A Sam Weideman mark and kick for goal with only 30 seconds remaining in the match could have won it for the Demons, but the kick slid sideways and the team went down by two points.  Sam may have been devastated, but the fact that the team could only kick 1 goal 8 behinds in the final quarter lays the blame at the fe

    MAYDAY by KC from Casey

    There’s not very much that can be said of the lacklustre performance of the Casey Demons at Avalon Airfield Oval against the Werribee Tigers on Saturday other than that it was woeful. There were however, a few small rays of hope for Demon fans, the main one being the display of defender Steven May from injury and to a lesser extent, Kade Kolodjashnij’s return after two months recovering from the effects of concussion. May was in stellar form down back, taking intercept marks, disposing of t

    POINT OF NO RETURN by the Oracle

    Conventional wisdom says that a club reaches the point of no return in the AFL competition if it has won less than four matches at the mid point of the season.  What this means for Melbourne is that in order for it to remain in the race for a top-eight position, it must start winning games now. Moreover, It's not enough to win the next game but it must also start stringing wins together to make up for its deficit in both wins and percentage.  With so much at stake there will be no excu

    A REAL DOWNER by KC from Casey

    When Sam Weideman kicked his third goal at the midpoint of the second quarter of Casey’s game at Downer Oval , Point Gellibrand on Sunday, he put his team 26 points ahead of the goalless Seagulls. Buoyed by the return from injury of Weideman and a number of other AFL-listed Melbourne players including Jordan Lewis, Mitch Hannan, and Jay Kennedy Harris and an impressive start to Jake Lever’s second game on return from his ACL surgery, the Demons were seemingly on top of the world. Lewis and

    ANOTHER GIANT PROBLEM by George on the Outer

    On top of its injury problems Melbourne ran into an “in-form” GWS Giants at the MCG in a game which, apart from a final quarter junk-time spree served to highlight the club’s current problems. There’s a virtually non-existent forward line; a plethora of VFL standard players, who might be getting plenty of game experience but most will simply not be up to AFL standard; an inability to kick straight and an ability to waste simple opportunities so that they mustered up only one goal in the fir

    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,
