Not really worth it's own thread, but Malthouse has put the feelers back out there. Would he be worth looking at for a Director Of Coaching type role? Feel like we need some more structure and support around Goodwin and Mick obviously has the experience, and now that Pert has been around a year he would be able to ascertain as to whether it would work in tandem with Goody.

Nigel Lappin and Blake Carecella are two coaches i would be talking to.

If the rumours are true that we will be trying to lure Brendan Bolton then that would be a huge get!

I like Ben Matthews as our midfield coach, i think he has shown with our young on ball brigade that he is capable of developing good midfielders. I would add someone like a Brett Kirk next to him.

Agree except for Ben Mathews, get Yze, Green, Bruce, Yeats, hell even Balls Grinter,

Lets get the firm that knows something about building a winning culture!!

Adem Yze’s the bloke who interests me. He’s now had many years of experience working at Hawthorn in what is a very winning culture and works directly with Clarkson on match days. I think he was backline coach for a time during their premiership period.

Accuracy at goal comes with good kicking actions.  The biomechanics.

The set up,  the address,  the hands,  the balance,  the approach,  the lining up,  the concentration,  the ball drop,  the execution and the follow through.  And there's other bits and pieces as well. 

And then lots & lots of practice.

We've got any number of players who fail in a number of the above areas.  So the problem needs to be addressed at the source of the problem.  Not the A-end.  The poor execution is a symptom.  A very bad symptom.

So we need skills coaches in specific areas.  At least 2 and maybe even 3.  For a professional sport we still see amateur standards with regards to the skills.

How good are our players on their opposite side?  Both by hand and by foot.  I'd give us a collective 2/10.  As for our preferred side ... 6/10.  And I'm being generous.  And our overhead marking skills aren't good either - especially in the forward line.  4/10

How do you win a flag with those ratings?  The answer is you don't.

Our endeavour,  energy,  effort,  ball winning skills,  hard ball gets,  clearances & contested work is quite good.  But we continually butcher the ball when we do get it.

We could do with a real fwd coach!!

image.png.53b1ae8d0c3447dcc46a55f52aba63cd.png

Don't know who our fwd coach was in 2016 but it wasn't Chaplin as 2017 was his first AFL coaching gig.

Not one has a career as an AFL forward so how on earth can they teach players forward craft they haven't experienced let alone been successful at. 

It is no wonder our players can't get separation or run to the right places to connect with mids. 

It is no wonder they then lose confidence and look to pass it off or miss set shots.

And it is worth noting that only Garlett has AFL experience as a forward prior to joining mfc.  The rest have been 'taught' forward craft by the above Defenders turned fwd coaches! 

With defenders as coaches it isn't surprising they think converted backmen/mids (Mcdonald, Melksham, ANB), kids or ex VFL players will get the job done.  It seems to me there is little appreciation of the need to put in the appropriate resources to teach them how to be AFL level forwards. 

Please don't tell me we have to use the players that we have.  We had good experience forwards (Watts, Kent, Hogan) and while there were good reasons for letting them go they were not replaced with experienced forwards.

Forward play is a specialist craft and deserves to have at least some specialist forward players and some specialist and experienced forward coach.  What we have is just not good enough. In fact it is laughable to expect winning scores with converted mids and defenders.

And it certainly doesn't help to change the forward 'coach' every 12 to 18 months.  Recipe for inconsistency which is exactly what we have.

I have said elsewhere a first rate forward coach has to be our 1st priority.  And it wouldn't hurt to have a ball-movement coach to help develop some connection with mids.

I would certainly look at getting someone like Nick Reiwoldt in to help the forwards with leading patterns etc even in a part time capacity, we can get the ball in there but anything that gives us better looks is worth considering. 

Blake Caracella is talked about glowingly by everyone he deals with though i suspect he could be in the mix for one of the senior vacancies.

Malthouse would not want to go within a bulls roar of the MFC and neither should we be entertaining the idea of someone whose time has well and truly passed coming to the club.

Too negative, old and grumpy for my liking.   ( oh, that describes a small percentage of demonlanders ) me, not included

I think Malthouse harbours some sort of long standing grudge against the MFC that pre dates most of us here, same as Sheedy and Matthews , never has anyone of them had a positive word to say about the MFC and love to sink the boot in ( or raise an elbow like the later always did)

    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 by George on the Outer

    Thanks, but no thanks! In a round where the club was supposed to thank their fans for the support during the year, the Melbourne Football Club chose to do otherwise with a 53 point loss to a team that sat 15th on the ladder.  Don’t give us cheap jumpers that can’t be sold in the Demon shop.  Don’t give us vouchers to shop there, give us something on the field, which is why we come to the football in the first place. It was a disgraceful performance, which started with a disgracefu

    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? As a consequence, the person re

    A LITTLE RAY OF SUNSHINE by KC from Casey

    Two clubs that have been hard hit by injury recently took part in a dour battle under dark clouds and, with intermittent showers falling, it wasn’t a pretty game at Victoria Park on Sunday. Despite all that, the Casey Demons added a little ray of sunshine to their day to get the job done over a "traditional" rival with a 15 point victory over Collingwood VFL that breathed life back into their season. There were a few highlights at the ground that in past days has seen many titanic batt

    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

    WHAT, NO BLOOD? by George on the Outer

    The feeling when turning up to the MCG on a Saturday night to play a top four side in Richmond, while the Melbourne sits cemented in close proximity to the bottom of the table is like attending the Colosseum in Ancient Roman times. The expectation is that a bloodbath is about to occur. There are 100,000 Richmond members and 50,000 Melbourne members, and despite the fact that it turned out to be a wet night after half-time, a crowd of only 37K bothered to turn up. That should never have happ

    A MAN’S ERRAND by KC from Casey

    A young and undermanned Casey Demons were sent out on Saturday to the Swinburne Centre in the shadows of the MCG on a man’s errand against a very experienced Richmond VFL combination which is the clear ladder leader and fielded no less than 18 AFL listed players. It was expected to be a rout and the Tigers made easy work of it in the early stages when they held a 26 point lead by quarter time. To their credit however, the Demons weathered the storm and kept their opponents within the range

    THAT’S FOOTBALL by Whispering Jack

    As the season rolls on towards the finals and the football world witnesses the aftermath of the sacking of the league’s unsuccessful coaches, it’s almost  inevitable that the spotlight will turn firmly upon the complete and utter failure of season 2019 - the Melbourne Football Club.  For a team that finished in fourth place last year and was heavily touted as a premiership contender, the fall from grace has been dramatic. As things stand, the Demons look certain to finish 13 places down on

    THE MOMENT OF TRUTH IS COMING by KC from Casey

    At half time in Sunday’s game at Trevor Barker Beach Oval, things weren’t looking too flash for the flailing finals prospects of the Casey Demons. Key forward Sam Weideman had suffered a concussion in his first contest and, with a few exceptions, the team was playing like a rabble rather than a finals contender. The Demons were 23 points in arrears to the Zebras and their season was headed towards oblivion. It was the skipper Mitch White who spurred his team on by word and by deed - he fini
