No major review says Bartlett

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.

 

And so there shouldn’t be any excuses, 2020 was the year from the blueprint to have built a premiership contending team.

Odds are meaningless.

You say this every week. Surely by now you've made up your own mind, or does our substance change week to week?

Must be thinking of Essendon or Meth Coast

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.

No. Someone who says Sundays game was of a much higher standard of where Melbourne and Carlton are at thinks our Preliminary Final was a not a flash in the pan shows poor judgement in my view.. You seem to have an axe to grind with me because I dared venture I had a bad experience with the Club this year. Makes me wonder.....

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...

 

Agree with this 100%.

I'd also add that Goodwin did a substantial apprenticeship before comming to us and then did a further few years under Paul Roos and I don't think you could ask for more than that.  I can't see how having someone looking over Goody's shoulder and back seat driving would help anyone and could pretty quickly become an undermining influence.

Furthermore, whilst I think Roosy would generally keep his distance and give Goody the space he needs to stand on his own two feet and get the job done, I'd also be pretty confident that if Goody wanted some guidance/advice and outside expert opinion on something that Roosy would freely provide that, so that effectively provides the coaching mentor role suggested.

I think it's also fair to suggest that Goodwin is also still maturing and developing as a coach in his own right and that is just another aspect to the journey that we are on as a broader team and I don't think there is much that the club can do to artificially accelerate that any more than it already has or that we can nessasrily have developed a bunch of raw 18 yo's into a battle hardened group of mid 20s premiership players overnight.

Again I'll emphasize that in his parting Demonland podcast interview, Peter Jackson who we all heralded as a messiah like football administrator somewhat for told that uninterrupted accentions like the club had experienced over the preceeding 3 - 4 years are rare in footyland and that we should expect some speed bumps along the way, though I'm not sure that he ment the speed hill that we have had this season.  He probably also mentioned something about his satisfaction and confidence that we had been able to put in place a club administration and footy department with the strength, stability and maturity to adequately handle the challenges and outside noise that a year like we have endured would bring.

Have I mentioned it previously? You’ve brought up your previous unhappy experience numerous times and somehow want to tie it to the Board, CEO and anyone else in the admin side of the club, just doesn’t hold water for mine but up to you I guess. The highlighting of the where people (WA, Collingwood etc) have come from then adds another odd layer.

Continuous constant review is what good organisations do to evolve, we've started planning for next season already the mid season revamp,(which many of the naysayers said the club didn't have the courage to do) is evidence of that.

There's been a change in game plan obvious to see, but flicking a switch mid season with game plan is difficult.The club is showing strength with their public communication and not panicking. 

I like some believe this season will either make or break Goody, I lean to the former but I've been wrong before.

I'd hate to see the club respond in public differently to how they have. They're dammed if they do and dammed if they don't. The cancerous elements of all clubs and supporter groups feed of public instability,  those elements were absent for most of last season and have come back to feed off negativity 

they refuse to enjoy a few moments of joy in bad times

they refuse to acknowledge small changes 

they look at what we can't do and refuse to acknowledge what we can do.

Do we need change, yes but not huge changes 

Will you change these supporters, No you need courage to admit you may have been wrong. They will lay dormant  for their moment to shine and say I told you so when tough times come

We prob don’t need an external review because the forty department knows where they stuffed up and will rectify it for next season. 

I have no doubt there will be a review just not an external one. 

Well put. Bartlett understands any successful org will have review process as an ongoing function. 

Mid season tweaks and pre season staus report showed this approach

 External reviews are a waste of money given the talent inside the club.

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. 

At least one of those sectors don't see what has happened as a problem, only an inconvenience it wants to go away.

No major external review at the end of the season?

I do not see a problem with that. From an external point of view based on what has been published, it would seem obvious where and what the problem have been. A very disrupted pre-season along with a string of critical injuries to a number of key players. The number and extent of the surgeries at the end of last season was also a contributing factor.

I also point to the changes to the coaching staff a couple of week's go as evidence that there is an ongoing review process in place. 

As for the head coaching position, well Goodwin ha been thee for 2 and a half seasons so far and I do not think that i long enough to judge his abilities. Harwick was coach of the tiges for 7 seasons until he managed to get the flag in 2017. the season before the flag they mnaged 8 wins and finished 13th.

 

Geelong in 2007 won the flag after Thompson had been coach for 7 seasons. in 2006 he went close to be chucked out as Geelong missed the finals.

Give Goodwin time to build the team and get them playing with confidence.

Having watched the Carlton game several times since last Sunday, I reckon we’ve been ordinary this year for two essential reasons (and we don’t therefore require some tedious review). They are that:

1. Tom McDonald’s been in woeful form for most of the year, yet we had banked on him being in equivalent form for the whole of this year to his form of last year - I suspect Rawlings helped him regain that form; and

2. Steven May (and critical other defenders) have been injured for much of the year.

Yes, the spread has been poor, the coaching staff didn’t get with the 6-6-6 changes, we’ve generally been absolutely bloody hopeless etc, but I reckon it’s all down to these two reasons.

In short, critical players either injured or pathetically out of form for much of the year.

And, true to the 2019 rhythm, just as Tom McDonald regains his form, he injures himself and is out injured for the rest of the season.

I agree.....good post.

Has Goodwin accepted some sort of responsibility? Don't reckon.....

Paul Roos had a simplistic plan......Surround yourself with good knowledgeable people, build a suitable & proven game plan, & get the players to 'buy in'.....It worked & now we have a 'so called' better list.

With no external review required, maybe they have the answers.....I hope so. Trying to take some team positives out of the year thus far but struggling to come up with any.....but maybe senior games into some of the young players has been encouraging.

    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

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!

    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

    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.
