Not true, we had Stynes and Lyon around when we appointed Neeld.

Along with “Chuckles” Connolly and “Whiteboard” Schwabby, both Dees old boys.

Very highly rated and has risen through the ranks quite quickly. Would be a fantastic get should it happen.

 

Who’s ur source Lord? How do we know it’s correct information ?????

 

 

 

Ha ha ha Only joking would be good to get him back to the club. 

Thanks for sharing the info.

Tried to write Yze but my spell check said YES!

That settles it.

Yze first started at the Hawks as goal kicking coach and worked his way up to his current role which is head of match day strategy and opposition. Regardless of who he played for, Yze is exactly what we need, the Hawks are coached extremely well.

He was always super competitive and has been working in a winning culture, so it's a big YES from me.

Would be a massive upgrade on anything remotely resembling a forwards/strategy/specialist assistant we’ve had in eons. 

I would love it to happen but skepticism is tempering my expectations.

The ideal candidate to help all our one sided players with their deficiencies....oh wait.

 

You're all going to @ me but I was never a fan.  No right foot, selfish, and worst of all, he wore a glove 😂

 

But you can't be an assistant to Clarkson without learning a ton.  Should Yze be hired I'd be happy to be proven wrong. 

Don't let your bias get in the way of a good coach, the hawks are regarded as the best team to work out the game plan of great sides and beat them, examples coming top 4 last year with a  ordinary list and also beating West Coast at their own home, West Coast  are at the top of the game at the moment. Adam was one of the best kicks ever to play the game,  his kicking into the forward 50  was first class. He started at the hawks as a kicking coach, they have been the best  kicking team in the time he has been there, When he first started there I thought what a great idea hiring a great kick to teach players how to kick, he has done a great job at that, so he has all the coaching  expertise we need kicking and hitting targets up forward, also he will be taking Jennings old job, our game plan fell apart this year.

They have the best kicking skills in the AFL.  A big 'Yes' from me.

If he is to be Strategy Coach, I hope he can do the goal kicking coach thing on the side.  He also had a beautiful kick going i50. 

In fact, he could teach the likes of Oliver, Harmes, Viney, Hunt, Brayshaw a thing or two about kicking.  Yze was blessed with natural balance which can't really be learnt.  But I'm a firm believer that poise and composure can be learnt.  From that comes better decision making.

None of them will kick like Yze but imagine if even half of those guys improved their i50 kicking skills by even 50%.

Not directly related to this thread: 

I hope Goodwin is having a big say in who the new coaches are.  It seems he made 'captain calls' on the current coaching panel.  I just hope we don't go too far the other way. 

Sign off on appointments is required by higher ups but he needs to be 100% sure he can work with them and he can deliver a united and cohesive coaching panel.

Hawthorn had Derm and Dunstall running the place when Clarko came on board. That is what distinguishes them. We have barely any Melbourne people involved with the club anymore. Helps with the connection to the club. 

you mean like when Lyon, Stynes hired Neeld and Craig?

No one would play better for us than Oooze when he was within 2 weeks of contract renewal.

As an aside, I used to work with Yze’s niece. Lovely person.

She was a huge Demons fan and said that her entire family loves the club - I believe this extended to her uncle Adem.

Get this done.

 

Shame Adem's children are avid Hawks fans

The fact that Yze is at Hawthon learning the craft under Clarkson excites me more than the fact that he is a Melbourne man.

There was an article floating around which I read a while ago. It was about Yze’s time as Hawthorn’s goal kicking coach and how we had 5 or 6 different types of kicks. Many of the players spoke highly of Yze and how he turned their kicking around to make them much better kicks. 

Getting him is a must.

When did Sam McClure talk about this? Stuie posted about this in his Facebook Group but no link was provided.

    WASH, RINSE, SPIN, REPEAT! by George On The Outer

    Although the Demons got over the line in their must win final round game against the hapless Bombers, they ensured it was Groundhog Day for their supporters who well remember what happened three years ago (although, this time they at least enjoyed the success of victory). Melbourne had its customary start dominating play and having plenty of chances in front of goal, only to find itself down on the scoreboard at the first change. Inaccurate kicking, particularly from set shots would have pu

    THE LUCK OF THE DRAW by Whispering Jack

    The long awaited clash between Melbourne and Essendon is almost upon us. Thirty-seven rounds of AFL football have passed by since the two clubs met on a balmy early April night last year in a game that produced a high scoring shootout at the MCG with the Bombers prevailing by 18 points. It was their only meeting for 2019 and happened at a time when the pandemic was something on the far distant horizon. Several months later when the 2019 season ended, the AFL issued the first of its fixtures

    THERE’S STILL A HEARTBEAT by George on the Outer

    When bottom side Adelaide scrapped together a win over the Giants last week, a tiny glimmer of hope opened up for the Demons’ finals chances. The patient was in intensive care but not quite finished — there was a faint pulse, a heart beating ever so slightly but was it enough when two more wins and other results were needed to fall their way? The first step was the resuscitation of a team that had lost its last two matches against sides then sitting fifteenth and sixteenth on the ladder. On

    THE FINAL HUMILIATION by The Oracle

    On Sunday, the Melbourne Football Club that won three consecutive games by in excess of 50 points last month returns to the Gabba, the scene of the last of those victories which was a 56 point drubbing of Collingwood. The Demons got off to a good start and won every quarter with a ruthless and powerful brand of football. They kicked 16 goals that day, their accuracy in front of goal a tribute to the skills the put on display throughout the afternoon and evening. In the four matches playe

    GIVEN THE OLD HEAVE HO’ by George on the Outer

    Fremantle gave Melbourne the old heave ho’ from playing finals in 2020, in conditions that the Demons yet again failed to handle.   With the whole season on the line and the need to win to stay in contention for finals, what the fans saw was much the same as they have been witnessing so many times before — a complete debacle and capitulation against a side that sat 15th on the ladder before the game.     Promises made after the loss to the 16th placed Sydney Swans were rendered h

    GETTING THE HEAVE HO by Bananabender

    The ute barely made it up to Cairns in time for us to check into the motel, fling a cane toad out the bathroom. and head over to Cazaly’s Stadium where we took up our position on the wing. There, we saw a completely different Melbourne to the one we watched on the screen only a few nights earlier from Alice Springs. This lot wore similar colours and Maxy dominated the ruck but the similarities ended there - the Demons were simply dreadful against the Swans. They started sluggishly, were spe

    A CLANGER IN CAIRNS by George on the Outer

    Having fought back into finals contention, the Demons had it all before them when facing a lowly Sydney in Cairns.  But in typical Melbourne fashion, they threw away the opportunity to cement their spot in the eight with a clanger of a game.  Right from the start, there was little to enthuse from the Melbourne players, who appeared to think that they only had to turn up, enjoy the North Queensland sun, and take away the four points.  Compared with the furious ground wide pressure of the

    TEN MINUTES LATE by Whispering Jack

    The late Norm Smith, who played in four Melbourne premierships and coached another six, was a strong disciplinarian. Known as the Red Fox for his auburn hair and his cunning, Smith was a man of a different age to the here and now. Born during the Great War, he survived the Spanish Flu Pandemic, grew up in depression times, played mostly through the Second World War and its aftermath and coached in a period of rebuilding and recovery to a time of prosperity. Smith’s success was built on team

    SAINTS HELL IN DEES HEAVEN by GOTO

    The last of this year’s indigenous games was played in the red heart of the country and could well have determined Melbourne’s finals aspirations but it was St Kilda that had its top four hopes dashed after a nail-biting finish in Alice Springs which saw them unceremoniously marched out of the position in football heaven occupied by them for much of this season. It all came down in the end to a goal-line decision as to whether a freakish shot by Christian Petracca was touched and the goal u

    DO OR DIE by The Oracle

    Melbourne is, not for the first time, paying for lapses in matches whereby the club leaks multiple goals without answer and which usually cost the club in those all-important eight point games as it did last week against the Western Bulldogs which replaced the Demons in the AFL top eight. And this week, they come up against a team that reputedly plays in the same mode as the Bulldogs but has been able to prevail over better opponents than Melbourne. It’s not that the Demons are out of form

    GIVE THE DOGS A BONE by George on the Outer

    The winner of the game is in the top eight and the loser out. Had Melbourne won, it would have consigned the Bulldogs season to the scrapheap given their remaining fixture which still includes a bye. The Demons led at half-time but they gave the Dogs a bone which was willingly accepted — they notched 6 goals in the third quarter and dumped the Demons out of the eight. This game simply saw all the bad habits return for Melbourne players.  When they serve up dinky kicks, dinky handballs, litt

    FRENZY by Whispering Jack

    The Melbourne Football Club should hand out an award to the person who came up with the concept of the 20 day football frenzy the football world experienced from Round 9 to the completion of Round 12 on Monday. When the AFL fixture was moved into a state of perpetual motion, things changed so quickly that it was difficult to fathom exactly what was happening to the competition but the Demons have been one of the beneficiaries to date. The flogging the team received at the hands of Port Adel
