I reckon there will be plenty of speculation about it, but I doubt he makes the switch.

Having said that, would it surprise any of us if he made the move, knowing how strong his ties are to the Crows?  Probably not.

it would really surprise me. He is invested, whether we like it or not. I cant see him leaving. i can see Crows asking, but  not likely IMO.

Surely that is an over reaction.  How about looking green and bilious in his general direction....

I imagine that’s how most people look at him though. How about if I were to fart is his general direction?

If not goodwin, who? is the biog question that i think needs to be asked. 

I don't like him as a bloke but Ross Lyon is gettable, his game style suits our list, he has a fantastic coaching record including grand final appearances with two clubs. maybe rebuilding isn't his thing but i reckon he'd get us back up the pointy end in 2020

Great post.  Lyon is seen by the industry as a coach that gets good teams up to GF level.  He does not take basket cases to do a re-build. 

Note Saints and Freo.

He may see the Dees in this light. Good list that can be made great?

And the Roos and Pert links

If he got us to a granny and  the ultimate prize he could leave the list anyway he wants.

I just want a premiership before I’m dead.

I have absolutely no doubt that Goodwin is safe and will be coach for the whole of next season, another poor season then who knows. However, if Ross were to come to Melbourne I would spew, literally spew, track him down and spew on him. 

I LOVE humourous hyperbole like this. Srsly, it's gloriously funny to read

Not very unique and has the potential to back fire, so no.....

There is absolutely no way that Goodwin will leave Melbourne to take over at Adelaide for 2020.  100% not going to happen.

I seriously question the mental capacity of posters that think this might happen.

It would be great if the Crows took Goodwin off our hands...would save us a fortune on the payout that we all know is coming in Round 10 2020

The way Melbourne are going at the moment we will probably give Goodwin another two years on top of his existing three years, just to fend off any suggestions about Adelaide.

Wouldn’t say “think” but “hope” it may happen. 

MFC supporters would have to be the most mentally tough supporters in the afl given the bs we have put up with continually.

I’m all for keeping Goody. But if he left now I’d go for Ross Lyon. He gets the best out of lists. We have the talent. He will give us a shot at a flag. Also he hasn’t been too bad at rebuilding Freo. They copped a lot of injuries this year. 

There are the speculated off field concerns that he puts people off side and that can be destabilising. But the Pert link is there.

You think the supporters "hoping" Goodwin goes after one poor year are mentally tough?  Please.

If he's the wrong man for the job, that will be on display in 2020.  At this stage, I look at 2018 and 2019 and have NFI if he's the right bloke.   I know one thing though, I'm not going to waste my headspace on all of these "ideal" head coach changes.

Those that want Goodwin gone blame him for the season we had. And yet, those same people will say that it was the whole coaching panel that got us to a preliminary final last year. I for one can't understand how it's the coaching group as a whole one year, and then suddenly, when we have a disastrous year, it's all completely one person's fault! If it was the panel last year, it was the panel this year! Which is why we're seeing the departures we are now. Goodwin may be a good coach, he may be a bad one, but we'll have no idea what would happen if we got rid of him now. I imagine we'd finish 18th if we changed the coach now.

have heard the crows already have a good idea of who they want, they saw this coming and it's already down to 2-3 coaches. and Goody is not one of them.

A clean swap with Freo seems likely in my opinion.

 I  wonder sometimes if our premiership coach is born yet or is he to start Primary school next year. Maybe he is a draft of 2020 or in the system already.

In any case l can only hope.

In answer to your question - 40 years.

I've only seen one poor year under Goodwin's regime though.  I'm more than happy to give him 2020 to show/prove it was/is something that won't happen again.

He will prove in 2020 if he's the man.

We need to think bigger and long term. 1 flag followed by 50 more years of mediocrity would be pointless. We need sustained success.

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2019

    PART ONE - OVERTURE  I have a disclaimer at the outset. I’m not a fan of the races - be they horses or motors of any kind. Once the final siren sounds on the football season, I find the month or so that follows and corresponds roughly with the Spring Racing Carnival to be the most boring time of the year for sports fans. You turn on the radio and you’re confronted by the monotonous drone of a self-proclaimed racing expert or by the nasally twang of an ex-jockey banging on about the equine p

    CHANGES 2019 by The Oracle

    PART 1 - IT’S A LITTLE MORE COMPLICATED THIS TIME This year’s free agency, trade and draft period will see the usual drama and upheaval as the AFL’s 18 clubs seek to better their lists in order to challenge for finals and possibly premiership honours. Long before the final siren sounded on the season just over a week ago, the maneuvering was under way with player agents and clubs discussing possible player movements and in some cases, deals had already been done.  Yesterday, the r

    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
