Who will be our caretaker coach mid next year if Goodwin is sacked ?

Recommended Posts

This doesn't seem to be a topic of discussion currently, given what's happened at the 3 other clubs this year and how an assistant coach could realistically be temporarily at the helm and then appointed. Jennings, McAartney and others moved on, and yet we're not sitting here discussing an assistant to jump on board NOW like Caracella at EFC & Ratten the year earlier at St K that will be waiting in the wings for an opportunity the following year.

If that ever happened I’d stop barracking for Melbourne let alone take out a membership or go to live games.

A little premature, we don't even know the ccoaching staff for next year... Maybe wait until we have a coaching staff & start the season 1-4 before speculating

What's the use of sacking him mid season.

Sack him now and give the new guy the off season and pre season to remake this shambles of a team.

It would be Rawlings. Has done it before, has experience now running his own team as well.

Nice idea - if others cannot come to the party. Proven in many ways at the MFC. I'd also link in Jordan Lewis - too talented and knowledgeable to overlook; but if Yze decides to return, all three would be a good mix.

I reckon we should go after Sam Mitchell. He’ll be the next ‘big’ coach.

He won't be sacked, this team will get a big preseason in and jump back up the ladder. 

I'd like to think so, but the team is stuffed in the head with misunderstandings about a game plan, about contested footy, about finding spaces forward of centre, about the positive uses across a game of the wings, about just nearly everything that Goodwin has done; and, as a team, it is exhausted.

yep get him as midfield coach, and Roughie as forward coach, and keep Lewis around as an assistant as well. then get rid of Goodwin.

Exactly Kent. Why are we waiting for the middle of next year? Do it now.

I can only wish and hope and have faith.

Nothing I have seen in the last 5 weeks tells me that things will change. But there you go.

We are now having to be a faith based supporter group.

I agree with how bad it has been and how bad it looks but, Every player will get a min of 4 extra weeks of preseason and a lot will get an extra 8 to 12 weeks. This team has just looked unfit all year and that makes you miss easy kicks and handballs at this level. If the problem was deeper we would have heard a lot more come out. Interesting thing will be to see how many "if any" ask to be traded out.

First you have to reconcile the reality that we just signed Goodwin to an expensive multi-year contract. A big payout for no return is not something the club can afford. Any replacement will come at the cost of paying Goodwin out for the next few years. Goodwin should not walk away as this will be his last go at coaching at the senior level. It is likely that in the remote chance of Goodwin going, the immediate replacement  will be someone cheap who we do not have to look for. Most likely this would be Rawlings. From what I have seen, he is a better coach than Goodwin and is hungry to achieve. He has won Casey games with his gameday coaching which Goodwin only has done a couple of times, seemingly by accident. I would be as happy if they just swapped jobs now.

    THE TORRENS THUMPING 2.0 by George on the Outer

    Once again the banks of Adelaide’s Torrens River witnessed the Melbourne Football Club handing out another on-field thumping to its opponent. This time the hapless victim was North Melbourne and given it was only the club’s second win against them since 2007, it was a very satisfying outcome. The Demons got off to a slow start once again, looking listless from their four day break, a situation that wasn’t helped by Sam Weideman and Christian Petracca missing easy set shots. At the first bre

    THE 2020 EQUATION by Whispering Jack

    The 2020 equation is simple for the Melbourne Football Club – it must keep winning and it must take some big scalps during the second half of the season without dropping games against the lesser lights. The Demons have gone down this season to the 1st, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th teams on the ladder including twice by less than a goal in games that could easily have gone the other way. Against that, they have beaten 11th, 13th, 14th and 18th and though they thumped the Crows during the week, the

    THE TORRENS THUMPING by George on the Outer

    THE TORRENS THUMPING - LEAVING THE DEMONS BEHIND That headline might lead a reader to think that Melbourne had lost badly in Adelaide but no!  It was actually the MFC which left it’s demons from the previous week behind as it applied the blowtorch to the Crows in the final quarter of their match at the Adelaide Oval and went on their merry way to record a 51 point win before their biggest crowd of the year (even if they were mainly hostile). Much had been made in the media about t

    STATE OF DEESASTER by the Oracle

    Melbourne’s circus caravan rolls into Adelaide on Wednesday night, an event that will put shivers up the spine of every Crows’ supporter as they look directly into the face of disaster. The flakey Demons left their home town a month ago and proceeded to rough up the Gold Coast Suns and Hawthorn in Sydney before moving on to the sunny Queensland where they missed by a bee’s diaphragm against the more or less local second-on-ladder Brisbane Lions. Then, they had to butter up against the top t

    OVERPOWERED by George on the Outer

    In a dismal display against Port Adelaide, Melbourne showed it had learnt nothing from their previous week’s loss to Brisbane. Port, in contrast, after losing to St.Kilda, addressed their failings, and as a result made the Demons look like a second-rate side.  Melbourne failed to score a goal in the first quarter, and the first time it seriously troubled the goal umpire was saved until a minute before half-time.  Did it get any better?  No with their meagre three goals for the sec

    DESPERATION OF THE MOMENT by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne’s recent win against Hawthorn highlighted how important Max Gawn’s ruck domination is for the team. A week later however, that domination continued but its effect was totally blunted by the Brisbane Lions midfield and, as a consequence, what could have been an easy win over a leading AFL contender turned into a disappointing but close loss and a sense of desperation now looms over the club as the halfway mark of the season approaches. This week’s opponent in Port Adelaide also und

    THE FOUR POINT FAIL by George on the Outer

    Melbourne went down by 4 points in a thrilling finish against Brisbane, but they failed by more than the 4 points.     They also failed to score the 4 points necessary to keep them in the race for the finals, and now find themselves sitting 6 points outside the top 8, but effectively 2 games outside (even though they have a game in hand).   The Demons had more than enough opportunities to win.  Six very easy shots on goal failed to bother the goal umpire with a major and ultimate

    NORTH OF THE BORDER PART 2 by The Oracle

    The travelling COVID circus moves north of the border yet again and, unless at some time in the near future, Papua New Guinea opens its borders, this could be the last time this phenomenon happens. And as fortune would dictate, the resurgent Demons are walking directly into the sights of the locals from the bright lights of Brizvegas to Carrara - the scene of some long-forgotten (and deservedly so) battles with one of the Lions’ former incarnations, namely, the Brisbane Bears. But unli

    ON THE NOSE by George on the Outer

    One of the Hawthorn Football Club’s valued sponsors is Azep® Nasal Spray and given the thrashing handed out to the Hawks in today’s game, it would appear that they need a huge supply of the sponsor’s product because they are simply on the nose. This condition was caused by the sheer dominance of the Demons, led magnificently by skipper Max Gawn with 27 hitouts and 22 disposals including two clearances. Around him in the middle were Christian Petracca with 29 touches, Clayton Oliver (also on

    THE PREMIER LEAGUE by Whispering Jack

    So the new man under the pump is Clarko, which demonstrates how sad but predictable the football media is these days. In an age where each AFL team’s form can be topsy turvy and unpredictability is the order of the day, the coach of a team that has played five out of the top six teams from the previous season and sits with a 3/3 win loss record is this week’s whipping boy.   This comes admittedly on the back of a bad fortnight from the Hawks who in recent years have exhibited an enormous

    SUNSMART by George on the Outer

    If you don’t want to get sunburnt, you follow the Sunsmart rules.  Melbourne took the advice and with their season on the line, avoided getting burnt by the Gold Coast Suns, with a gripping 17 point win. It was a match that could have gone either way, with the sides within a kick of each other for all but the final minutes of the final quarter. Melbourne had stretched the lead earlier in the game to 18 points, but that quickly evaporated to a neck and neck race to the finish.  Finally,

    NORTH OF THE BORDER by The Oracle

    The outcomes of Melbourne’s recent games against the Gold Coast Suns are a pretty good barometer of how the teams are faring. The Demons easily accounted for them twice in 2018, the last win being a 96-point cakewalk at the MCG in Round 20 when they scored a whopping 21.17.143 to 7.5.47. Ironically, Melbourne’s score of 9.3.57 at the first break that afternoon is leading its highest score for a full game to date this year by 3 points. In those days, they played fast, skillful football, moved th
