I think the number of players in rehab in January and even February had a big impact on our ability to spend enough time doing match simulation. To meet it seems that on reflection, hindsight being a wonderful thing, Goodwin had wished we'd spent the limited match simulation we had on the fundamentals to our game plan, rather than adding layers. As a result we went into the season with a game plan we couldn't execute. 

That was exactly the point he was making.

So his a good bloke to people in the industry and signs players like Preuss to 4 years or Vandenberg to 3 years? 

Any GM can get players on long term contracts because it’s what the player managers push for.

You really have no idea.

We will never know if he's the one reviewing his own performance.

Surely you are capable of coming to your own conclusions without relying on some sort of review?

Josh is a professional who is highly regarded among senior figures. Look elsewhere for the answer to our season, it ain't here.

PSD has been quiet this week... I think it all got a bit much for him...

thanks for the critique btw, will be remembered......

 

Sorry to disappoint Swyl, I have just flown back in from Italy arrived home 3hrs ago having been overseas at a family wedding, (which I eluded to in other posts).

Nothing changes the rumour mongers are still playing Chinese whispers adding little bits here and there. 

Interesting to see the so called Dud in Mahoney has managed to get Burgess and Richardson on board, imagine 2 sort after footy people chosing to come to this basket case

This coming from the guy who was calling other posters Harry hindsight the other day.

That said Richo Won 43 games from 126 and the ladder positions while in charge during completed seasons with St Kilda were 18th, 14th, 9th, 11th and 16th. They were 11th when he left this year. St Kilda's list isn't the greatest, but he certainly didn't do much with them. This isn’t a Clarko we are talking about here.

If we were engaging him as head coach, perhaps you'd have a point.

But we aren't.

Agree

There's some on here who seem to think Mahoney and others in the FD wouldn't have been doing all he/they could from early in the season change things up to get  the club back on course for 2020+

Enlighten me, where has Richo been previously successful playing the role as head coach support.

Finishing 5th once in a decade is hardly anything worth raving to home about. You would think the way people are going on we just landed Roos, Simpson or Clarko.

We just landed a coach with a mediocre track record who was sacked and looking for a new job, he didn’t even need to leave another club to come to us. But yeah, master stroke by Mahoney

Answered your question though didn't it?

He's pretty highly regarded as an assistant coach, especially in development. It's not going ti single handedly change our fortunes, but hardly think it's something to be complaining about given where we're at and how much we need experience around Goody in the box.

Misson was also ‘highly regarded’. Let that sink in. Most over-used term ever being used on Demonland right now.

If Goodwin is such a good coach why all this talk about him needing help in the box.  I know all coaches have support but the talk in this club is almost such that Goodwin is in trouble unless we get him a former coach to help him.  

i am bemused about all this.  I would get rid of Chaplin for sure,  as some other assistants.

My perception is that it's more that he's an inexperienced coach with potential and needs experience around him to learn and develop from.

Hardly consider finishing 5th once in a decade ‘success’, but each to there own. Personally I hope Demons perform better then that but I guess to some people 5th once in a decade would be enough.

Stop stating facts please PSD.

It’s much more interesting when people are simply making stuff up.

    SOUTH OF THE BORDER by the Oracle

    Thankfully they moved this week’s game from Sydney where the sun shines and the virus breeds ever so slowly and almost nobody returns a positive test. The change of fixture comes at precisely the right time to allow everyone in town to head to the MCG on Sunday at around 3:30pm, not to catch up with what’s going on inside the ground but rather, to do what’s fashionable for woke folk in 2020 — pulling down statues. It’s time for Kevin Bartlett and Leigh Matthews to go but you can’t touch Norm Smi

    LESSONS IN LOSING by George on the Outer

    Turn up for the game and look like you want to win it.  Melbourne lost this game to Geelong, a game after a couple of extended breaks, looking like they were at the end of a 22 game season. Right from the start there was a lack of intensity across the board, as the Demons played exactly the type of game that the ageing Geelong list wanted. Geelong repeatedly played possession footy, to avoid having to run those ageing legs, something that Melbourne failed to exploit.  To use the oft quot

    QUARRANTINO by Whispering Jack

    At a little after 4.00pm last Saturday, the MCG ceased to be the centre of the AFL universe. That was when the AFL’s el supremo Gil McLaughlin announced that the Bombers’ Conor McKenna had returned a COVID-19 positive result and declared that the game set for the following day between Essendon and Melbourne was postponed.  What followed was truly the stuff of a pulp fiction novel. We witnessed a suitcase load of mental gymnastics and spin calculated to let McKenna (and the Essendon Football

    WHADDA WE SING? by Whispering Jack

    When the Melbourne team sang “The Grand Old Flag” last Saturday at Marvel Stadium in the absence of skipper Max Gawn, Ed Langford and Adam Tomlinson who were first time winners at their new club and Jayden Hunt, the leading goal kicker of the day it was passed off as an honest mistake. Taken in isolation, it most probably was accidental but the problem is that little accidents have been happening far too often in the club’s recent history and, in this case, it was symptomatic not only of a day t

    A POINT OF DIFFERENCE by George on the Outer

    It was Melbourne v Carlton at the comics stadium; a game between 16 and 17 in 2019. How could anyone pick a winner?  There had to be a point of difference, and so it would prove to be as the Demons literally fell over the line at the end, by a solitary point. In an almost complete replica of the Richmond v Collingwood game two nights previously, one of the sides (Melbourne in this case) rushed out to a five goal lead in the first quarter, while the Blues failed to bother the goal umpir

    EXPOSED FORM by The Oracle

    Carlton fancies itself to beat Melbourne at Marvel Stadium on Saturday and, based on exposed form, why not? The Blues took it right up to the reigning premiers in their last up start and the Demons were simply horrible against the Eagles at Optus Stadium. That opening game of the season revived all of the nightmares of 2019 for a team that went inside the 50 metre arc 45 times, an advantage of 10 times over the home side and yet lost by almost five goals. Such statistics sum it up for a gam

    SOCIAL DISTANCING by George on the Outer

    It was good to see the MFC players practicing the directives about social distancing at the game against West Coast.  Pity was that they continued to do so after the first bounce of the ball, as they allowed numerous WCE players run around un-hindered, with not a Melbourne player within 1.5 metres of them! They then found themselves looking at nearly a 5 goal deficit at the first break, which was to be essentially the final margin for the game. It is difficult to judge exactly what is going

    BEST IN SHOW by Whispering Jack

    I am writing this knowing that the AFL has deemed that the opening round of competition will proceed but fully believing that it should not.  The world is going through cataclysmic change as a result of the overwhelming spread of the Covid-19 virus and I agree that a distraction like sport would be good for the public. However, while the physical threat to the population is bad enough, there are other  issues to be addressed including the mental health of the community and the effects on th

    TASSIE DEVILS by Van Demon

    If you were looking for something new from the Demons that wasn’t there last year, you didn’t have to look further than the perfectly trimmed grass surface of UTAS Stadium last night as the team steamrolled the Hawks to record a comprehensive 32-point victory to complete their Marsh Community Series commitments for 2020. One new thing was the fact that for the second Marsh game in a row, the team finished full of running and they dominated the second half without the presence or the dominan

    SOUTH OF THE BORDER by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons will go into their final Marsh Series match with a strong lineup against the Hawks in Tasmania. Both Max Gawn and Steven May, who were recovering from injuries in first Marsh Series match, have both been named. It is unclear whether Max will be on restricted minutes and will likely get breaks in the ruck with Sam Weideman and rookie Luke Jackson getting their turns in the middle. Angus Brayshaw will be getting his first taste of competitive football despite playing in last week’s

    KANGAROO CAUGHT by Whispering Jack

    There was a fair amount of debate in our area as to whether the game warranted a full blown match report because it was felt that it was really an elevated version of a training session with match simulation but against a team in opposition colours. Although notionally the stronger side, North seemed to be using the occasion for the purpose of working on aspects of their game plan, one of the features of which seemed to be based on taking the longest possible route out of defence and good luck w

    JUST AN ABERRATION by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne unveiled its top recruits with new fitness boss Darren Burgess and mid-sized bull Christian Petracca sharing top billing in the team’s Marsh Community Series opener in front of 3,095 football starved fans at Casey Fields and thousands of others watching on screens of various shapes and sizes.  What they saw was a different Melbourne to the one that failed to run out its JLT Series games last year and then crashed in a heap early in the season proper with performances lacking the z
