But given a good off season and preseason to rebuild our lists from the injured plagued start to 2019 and regain some of the confidence and beleif that has been sapped from the team this year, I do believe we can bounce back much stronger next season - if not, that's when the 'major review' will most definitely be on the cards.

Would rather do it now just to make sure we haven't missed anything & are on track for 2020...

We can't afford another lost season like this one.

I'm in the camp that no external review was needed. 

An internal review has happened.  All are on notice to sort out whatever went wrong and as Pert said 'Mahoney will own the outcomes'.  Would be very surprised if there aren't more assistant coaching changes at seasons end - as there are in all clubs.  Hopefully, ours will be have had success in their designated areas.

The mid year coach changes have worked so far.  Rawlings has the forward line ticking nicely. 

The major change I would like to see is someone to hold the coaching department accountable and mentor Goodwin.  I'm don't think Mahoney is the one.  It shouldn't need the CEO and President to get involved and tell him to sort things out.  He is an excellent administrator but have doubts about his football nouse to confidently manage the whole football side of the business.  But I doubt he will go this year.   So the role of 'Coaching Director' might be a good outcome.

Shockingly nearly all the players didn't barrack for us and some weren't even born in this state! Gosh!

Perhaps we should get Connolly back in hey?

No, we should not get Connolly back in. Where did I say get unqualified or incapable people involved in the Club.

I’m not sure if I’m amused or despondent that some posters equate playing in the finals with the season still being alive. Of course playing and winning a GF is the ultimate goal, but there is plenty to play for nevertheless (including treating the rest of the year for experiment etc)

The mentor thing is a cop out...it doesn't work, never has.

What did Craig do to stop Neeld's self destruction?

The buck stops with the coach, by all means get the right team around him...but in the end you can take him to water but can't make him drink.

...and you don't put more people in positions and make up roles to cover for others perceived lack of abilities.

You get the right people in to do the job.

All on notice & owning outcomes...well most on here have had to wear the outcomes for many, many years now. 

Unfortunately Pert didn't get a favourable outcome after an external review at the Pies, I hope that's not effecting his judgement here.It would only be human nature if it did...

He said they are constantly reviewing. This is Consistent with an agile framework you’d find in many businesses these days. Nothing to see here. 

And hasn't that worked well for the banks, aged care sector, the churches and 7-Eleven? Thought it worked particularly well at Boeing actually.

Works brilliantly in my sector and many others. It keeps people accountable for their deliverables and fully informed.

In desperate times like these, people will tend to make mountains out of molehills like this and I don't necessarily blame them. This is really a non issue if you understand current best practises in the corporate world though.

Genuine question, can you explain how an agile methodology caused problems for the businesses you mentioned?

You said that when you implied we should have Victorian, Demons-affiliated people in the key positions of our club, rather than actual qualified professionals.

I'm not sure what point you're trying to make here. Are you concerned, perhaps, that there's a lack of Victorians or former Melbourne FC people in senior positions? I'm not sure why that matters. In fact, I'm sure that it doesn't. But your last line is factually incorrect. Bartlett is not an employee. He's elected to his position.

They can't have an official review. What if they did and the recomendation was to sack Goodwin after we just extended his contract for an additional 3 years. That would be a bit embarrassing for all those involved.

It equates perfectly with the notion  "nothing to see here...move along"  and we all know what that REALLY means.

Quite frankly I dont care what the club says or doesnt say...it's all fluff for this audience or that. I actually beleive NOTHING that is ever uttered by anyone to do with a football club. 

Football is not played with words...it's about action. So I will wait and watch and wonder if anything will really change.

I doubt much, unless there are actually changes. Again...that is an action...not words.

Unlike some here I have very little faith in this club of ours currently. Nothing to be concerned about...just a few icebergs..all good

I can totally understand why the club wouldn't want to telegraph a 'major review' at this stage.  Firstly the season isn't actually finished yet, secondly it's only been one poor season in the context of several years of steady improvement and thirdly to state up front that a 'major reiew' is on the cards would somewhat predicate the outcome and create the expectation of major changes, when perhaps major changes are not what is actually required.

What I would expect to be happening over the offseason though is the compeditive young guys on our list asking the hard questions of themselves and challenging themselves to turn things around and become that elite side we expect them to be and that they most probably expect of themselves.  I'd like to hope maybe something like that young 2007 Geelong side turnaround is possible, but pehaps that's wishful thinking and a bit clichè.  But given a good off season and preseason to rebuild our lists from the injured plagued start to 2019 and regain some of the confidence and beleif that has been sapped from the team this year, I do believe we can bounce back much stronger next season - if not, that's when the 'major review' will most definitely be on the cards.

Great post.  The club hope that this year was an event, not a trend.

Overtly, they have addressed the forward coaching in a mini-review pre-bye.  Covertly, there would be many other wholesale changes.

Many here are fixated on the Misson replacement, but I expect the rest of the pyramid to be overturned come season’s end.

Goody and Bartlett will feel the heat in 2020.  No excuses for either of them.

It certainly is and makes you wonder about his judgement. I have not heard from anyone who shares his view. As you say, alarming. It also implies that if we play like that for the rest of the year we will beat much higher sides. Let us see.

IF no injuries and the game went as it was till 3 mins before 3/4 time it would have been a 10 goal thrashing!!

Then this result would have all of us inc. Glen Bartlett lauding our players mid season review and potential for 2020.

BUT let's remember C.Curnow Cripps and McKay (Docherty) were out of Blues and we had Gawn Melksham and Lever (Jetta) so Maybe 5/6 goal margin more realistic!

We all know we've had a disastrous year,  it's been horrific and it's hard to swallow. 

I do however suspect the club is fully aware of the effect the pre season surgeries and continuous injuries throughout the year have impacted our performance.

They've totally rejigged the coaching staff in the past month and i noticed a clear change from the chaos footy we've grown accustomed to against The Blues.

I agree with Bartlett, we are always reviewing, we're acting accordingly and won't be swayed by media witch hunts.

I for one would like to hold a review into why the review into whether to hold a review of the review, remains unreviewed. Then we should re-review that review. Followed by a players revue.

Huh? How would this statement make you wonder about his judgment? I read it as blah blah blah whatever I need to say to let the fans know that internally we still think we’re on the right path. 

It’s not like he can come out and say “yea Jesus I would have to have paid my hard earned to watch that trash... why would anyone want to sponsor us after this season hahahahaha I’m from WA I don’t  care about this club”.

You seem to have an axe to grind against the admin of the club after your disappointing dealings with them.

    RED AND BLUEPRINT 2019 by Whispering Jack

    The rusty red of the McDonnell Ranges and the blue skies above them provided the perfect backdrop that summed up everything about the Melbourne Football Club’s 2019 season. It set out the perfect red and blueprint for the club’s horror year. The club’s previous season was one of great promise but it ended in a calamitous way in Perth with an 11 goal defeat at the hands of the ultimate premiership side, the West Coast Eagles in a game where the Demons’ first goal came early in the third quar

    WINDY DAY FOOTY by KC from Casey

    Windy day footy has always been the domain of those who play the game hard: on days when the breeze gusts all over the place and the ground has been sodden by recent rains, the player needs to get all aspects of his game together and be hard of body and mind, to concentrate and attack the football. The Casey Demons came out on their own deck in such conditions and under a mainly sunny sky and gave it a crack for half a game but they lost sight of the fundamentals of playing hard in difficul

    TRECIMATED by George on the Outer

    A little more than two months have passed since Melbourne met and came close to beating the reigning premier West Coast in the preliminary final replay over in the West. At the time, the Demons had three wins on the board and now, nine rounds later and going into this week’s match, they have managed to add a paltry two more wins to the ledger.  The Eagles, in contrast, have moved to within percentage of second spot on the ladder despite their loss at home this week against Collingwood.

    SAME STORY, DIFFERENT SONG by George on the Outer

    Melbourne was still suffering from the same old story - a lack of AFL capable players from which to choose at the selection table - and the Western Bulldogs got to sing their song again. But wait, that wasn’t the Doggie’s song we’ve been hearing for the last 30 years, it was some other concoction and no-one knew the words to it but whatever it was, they got to mumble it with gusto after a huge 8 point win! The sad thing is that the Bulldogs (or Footscray or whatever they choose to call

    DOGGED by KC from Casey

    On Sunday, the Casey Demons met the Footscray VFL under the roof at the same venue where their nemesis took them down in the 2017 grand final and the result left them with the same feeling of disappointment - this time with a seven point defeat that ended the club’s four game winning streak and made things a lot harder in terms of playing in this year’s final series.   And, as has so often happened this year, the Demons let the game get away from them with but failing to take advantage of th

    BARKING MAD by The Oracle

    There was so much hype proliferating about Melbourne’s prospects for season 2019 a mere four months ago, that one could be forgiven for thinking anyone contemplating the prospect of a bottom four finish for the Demons at the time was barking mad. That however, is the prospect that they face at the moment and a loss to the Bulldogs on Sunday would make it a virtual certainty.  The club’s downward spiral after several years of moving steadily on an upward trajectory has been well documented i

    THE MELBOURNE WAY by George on the Outer

    Much has been made by the coaching staff of playing a “Melbourne way” style of play. The nail-biting finish by the Demons in the dying minute of the game could not have been any more the case in point.   Leading by a game-high 38 points late in the third quarter, and by five goals at the final change, this should have been the catalyst for a romp home to an easy win.   But that is not the “Melbourne way” and the supporters, especially those with a severe case of MFCSS (aka intense inse

    PINK AND BLUE CAN’T KICK TRUE by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons took on the Northern Blues at home on Saturday  in a game that was crucial in terms of their hopes for September and they took away the valuable four points on offer after some worrying moments. Most of those worries were self-inflicted as a result of some shocking inaccuracy in front of goal, sloppiness in play and a little bit of indiscipline that all combined to make the game a lot closer than it should have been. The final scoreboard showed the Demons winning the P

    GO FIGURE by Sam the Stats Man

    In May last year, a rampant Melbourne side demolished Carlton by 109 points at the MCG. The Demons did as they pleased and ran rings against a young, abysmal Blues combination. The Dees led in virtually every key performance indicator, notably entering the inside 50 metre mark 63 times to 33 and the superiority of their attack was highlighted by a 74% shooting accuracy rate (to 47%).  A little more than a year later the two sides face each other for the first time since that rout and the ta

    GORN AT THE GABBA by George on The Outer

    With Melbourne leading the Brisbane Lions in the second term, and the game in the balance, a Max Gawn ankle injury signalled that the Demons were as good as gorrnnn for the match. Without a suitable 2nd ruck and (once again) forced to use either Tom McDonald, Tim Smith or Sam Weidemann in the ruck the Demons found themselves without a forward line that could kick a winning score. Not that anything really changed, as the forward line has been completely dysfunctional all season and one

    GAMBIT by KC from Casey

    The opening gambit of Saturday afternoon’s game told us everything about who would be its main players and who would come out on top. The Casey Demons were eager to turn the tables on the Box Hill Hawks who beat them in last year’s grand final and then gave them a first up mauling at City Oval, Box Hill. Kicking with the aid of a strong breeze in the opening term, Braydon Preuss’ first hit out went straight to the diminutive Jay Kennedy Harris who pounced with a 70 metre shot at goal that sailed

    MURDER BY NUMBERS by Sam the Stats Man

    The respective ladder positions of this week’s combatants tell the story of one side on the rise and the other in steep decline. Since their most recent meeting which took place early last year, the Dees and the Lions have changed positions. They are opposed to each again on the former’s home turf with the locals in fine fettle after blowing St Kilda off the park at Marvel Stadium.  The Lions’ home ground advantage has been a major consideration so far this year.
