2020 Assistant Coach Prospects: The Next Batch

Recommended Posts

1 hour ago, drysdale demon said:

Do you know any assistant coaches to ask if they would have second thoughts on working under Goodwin?

Two of the Bulldogs assistants who are good friends of my daughter and son in law told me during 2016 that the MFC would perform better under Goodwin than Roos and their opinion has not changed, so I will take their opinion of Goodwin over anyone that posts on this site.

I can tell you that a current assistant compared Goodwin to a premiership coach he’d worked under, and said he’d never experienced an environment as good as the dees, and would not want to work anywhere else. The premiership coach he’d worked with would often not even acknowledge him when passing in a tight corridor and no one else around.

I’d say there’s more good than bad (regarding Goodwin & the club) in those comments. I don’t see where treating people like [censored] leads to success.

I'll keep saying the same every year until I run out of breath: Nathan Basset.

Port defensive coach. Joined in 2016.

Since 2017, Port have had the second-least points against (2017), the third-least points against while finishing 10th in 2018, and currently sit within two goals of third-best defensive standings for 2019 while in 9th place.

Also: Basset coached Norwood to back-to-back flags from nowhere in 2010 - before joining Craig and Goodie at Essendon in 2014 - and spent the bulk of his 200-game career alongside Simon Goodwin, earning All Oz honours next to Goodie in 2006.

A usually good source has surprisingly told me Jennings will look to move on end of season.

Tom Browne reporting tonight that MFC may look to move Jennings on.

Yep saw that. Was known as the tactical genius last year, but looks like he has been exposed unfortunately.

Looks like the board is putting all their eggs into the Goodwin basket, hoping that their ludicrous contract extension prior to starting the year pays dividends.

It's gonna get a whole lot uglier if it doesn't.

Do clubs have goal kicking coaches any more? Or does that come under forward line coach?

I like the idea of Bolton as development coach. Despite his lack of success at the Blues, he has an excellent football brain influenced by Clarko

Not sure how many exactly, but yeah I know of a few that have goal kicking coaches. It's generally only a part-time role though.

A person of interest for the club should be Daniel Giansiracusa. Has been coaching his own side, is a great communicator, great culture fit, Level 4 coach, premiership assistant. Should be o the radar for us as a club.

Melbourne is the latest club to register its interest in retiring Hawthorn forward Jarryd Roughead.

The Demons have already begun their football department shake-up which will include more than 10 position changes across key pillars at AAMI Park.

And although St Kilda and to a lesser extent Gold Coast remain in the hunt to lure the four-time premiership star, foxfooty.com.au understands Melbourne has a role for Roughead if he wants it.

So its all pretty quiet on this front and while i understand that we may not know whats happening on the inside, the silence really is deafening..

Does anyone have any update on who might be an option.. as i understand it this i our panel as we stand:

Goodwin, Richardson, Matthews, Chaplin, Plapp, Egan (Development) Rooke (Development)

IN: Richardson

Out: Macca, Rawlings, Jennings

SO at least 2 names to replace a couple really senior figures, assuming we say Richo straight swap for Macca, leaves us having to fill the Jennings and Rawlings position. Gosh i really hope they are experienced, well respected coaches. 

Yze chat has gone very quiet, with Bolton landing back at the hawks, does that squeeze someone out there? 

I know patience is a virtue, but it is really quiet on the coaching front.

    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
