Was passing on what I was told, will try and find out more context for you or maybe a rough time. Stand by...

Was in the first 45 minutes of the show and was a few passing references to MFC chasing him apparently.

I'm excited by both. 

I  would be very confident in saying that firstly, he would be great in the coaching department and secondly, Yze was always going to come back to the MFC after his playing career when such newer skills, to him, were developed so that he could make a positive input to the Club we all love. By hell, he was a good player and for just that alone, could remedy our team across the summer.

Supremely talented as a player but also very cerebral. 

His positioning in contests and knowing when to jump and when to get front and centre was sublime. He was also able to play a range of positions, half back, midfield and close to goal. 

Would be a good fit and a great mentor to guys like Fritch and Trac

I think most on here couldn’t care less about the romantic notion of him coming home and would be more concerned about getting someone who has worked closely with Clarko.

But his ties to Melbourne are what could draw him back.

I went on the Daniher Drive last year to raise money for MND and Oooze was there with a host of other past players including Neitz. I can tell you the bond is strong.

The Ooze chastising a player for a lack of defensive pressure may even satisfy Alannis' pedantry!

Clarkson is the best coach of the modern era so he has been learning from the best at tactical innovation and getting players to understand and implement that tactical innovation.

Too right. Being lean and mean, himself, a lightweight-easily-knocked-out-of-position type forward- mid-fielder -backman, these positionings of which you refer, and his jumps timings, and his nouse of 'when to kick the ball earned in general play' were magnificent so his teachings to guys like Fritsch and Tracca, and Salem and Oliver/Gus would be invaluable. Of course, mental acuity would form part of that learning - something that our 'game plan' seems to lack.

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. 

Hawthorn made themselves a premiership factory specialising in left footers dg.

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

Have you a link to said FB group?

People have said don't bother, but I am not so interested in a review, I'd just like the link (a FB search yield unuseful results)

The Facebook page is "Melbourne Demons News." Be careful what you say though, Stuie is a bit of a control freak. Oh, and don't post news before him, he'll block comments on your post so they can only comment on his post about the news shortly after.

Huge difference between us and them - their left footers could hit a target.

 

Like i said, if Yze was hired and a huge success I'll happily cop that I was wrong. But I still hate the glove ?

How do you feel about Jack Mueller, the original glove man?

(Besides the four premierships and three BnFs.)

Adem’s kick off the ground goal in the final quarter of the 2000 Qualifying final win over the Blues one of my favourite moments of all time.

#bringademhome

Just an ordinary home and away game, but I remember him taking a massive pack mark in the goal square against North in 2002 to boot the winner on the siren.

Loved him ever since.

This 1 sticks with me at 14:10 from the boundary during a rampaging comeback during the 2002 semi final.
Had me redlining bigtime.

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE POINTY END by The Oracle

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition t

    TAMING THE LIONS by George On The Outer

    With nine finals debutants in the side, the Melbourne Football Club had a daunting assignment ahead of it in the First Qualifying Final — to overcome the competition’s highest scoring side, the Brisbane Lions. In the end, the Demons accomplished the task by putting the bite on their opponents on their way to taming the Lions and recording a 33 point win that propelled them into one the two Preliminary Finals of 2021.   It was one of those debutants, Luke Jackson, who put the bite in more

    RETURN TO NEVERLAND by Whispering Jack

    The greatest Demon A HIGHWAY OF DEMONS by Whispering Jack CHAPTER SIXTEEN - RETURN TO NEVERLAND  I have a six year old grandson who recently took up the family tradition of following the Demons. He had his first taste of the game a few years ago when he went to the “G” with his parents to watch the 107-point massacre of Carlton and he went to another game in the following season which was also a W for the Dees. But his appetite for the club has grown exponentially this year and wh

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position. In a remarkable game, it all came down to Max having to kick the winning goal after the final siren, something which s

    SKIN THE CATS by Whispering Jack

    The task ahead for the Demons as they wend their way down the Princes Freeway to Geelong on Saturday night will be to skin the Cats. For them to come away with the points from this game would mark an historic occasion for the club as it will finish on top of the ladder for the first time since its last premiership year, 1964. And it was in that year, that a trip to Corio Bay to meet the reigning premiers in Round 12, was one of the catalysts for Melbourne’s surge to the flag. It was a top o

    REACH FOR THE STARS by George on the Outer

    It was a game of great significance for the Melbourne Football Club. A win would see them keep top spot on the ladder with one round remaining. To achieve top place in the Round for Reach when we are all inspired to “Be Like Jim” and reach for the stars was a great way of honouring one of our heroes. All the better given that it was done by way of an emphatic 41 point win against Adelaide! It is worth remembering that, but for the umpiring mistake in the previous encounter with the Crows, t

    TICKETS PLEASE by The Oracle

    A lot of water has passed under Princes Bridge in the five years since Melbourne last met Adelaide on the MCG. The Crows were riding high at the time while the Demons were mid-table and scrambling for a win to stay in the race for the finals. The 30,000 fans who had tickets to the game were thoroughly entertained by a close, high scoring affair that ended in tears for fans of the home team. Not even an eight-goal second term could help them.   Times have changed.    In the fi

    ELECTRIFYING by George On The Outer

    What more can they throw at the Demons of 2021? Covid restrictions, hubs, aircraft circling between airports before landing for games and now a match stopped for 30 minutes to give a flagging opponent its second wind? To date, none of those distractions has swayed the team from their winning objectives. The game against West Coast in Perth can be marked on their report card as another positive outcome after yet another test. There was much at stake for both sides.  Melbourne had t

    LONG AGO AND FAR AWAY by Whispering Jack

    When the combatants that are due to face off on Monday night at Optus Stadium last met, it was 11 days after the World Health Organization had declared the Covid19 outbreak a global pandemic. In Australia, the first cases had just come to light, including visiting US actors Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson, the toilet paper panic was in full flight and the world was starting to reel in anticipation of impending disaster. Half an hour before this last game of the opening round was due to comme
