No way. I'd take Montagna as an assistant who was doing match analysis for him.

Both Clarkson and Dimma almost lost their jobs and they have gone on to be the dominant coaches of the decade. 

Let's stick by Goody

Hypothetical should the club consider Lyon if he wanted to coach in 2021?

Yes he gets the best out of his troops and is not as defensive now.

If not Coach then an Assistant

If we have a 5-12 or 4-13 season and finish say 15th or below, I’d be asking a question. Though I think given the c19 circumstances, it’s going to be hard to judge 2020 in any format.

So we have Allan Richardson and Ross Lyon as assistant coaches in a financially constrained environment?     ... Righto

Might as well put on John Worsfold and Mark Thompson as well for good measure.

i don't see how it's feasible to ditch goodwin at the end of 2020 regardless of our results

we can't afford to pay out / negotiate a way out of two years of his contract, as he's signed til the end of 2022

i certainly wouldn't be looking at ross lyon as an option

Read whole thread thinking it was a discussion about Garry Lyon. Had to read again. Response not much different.

No how about we stick with the 1 coach for awhile. We don't need to go into this sacking mode all the time. Stability would be helpful. Goodwin will be ok.

The question we need to ask - is Goodwin the type of reputable character that would fall on his sword should we win just 3-4 games, and put the club first before his hip pocket? If so, it gives the club a lot of flexibility as Goodwin would likely receive a far less pay out than getting sacked.

From what I saw in round 1, it's not looking good, but the apologists will no doubt blame it on an external factor rather than judging the product that was delivered on the field. According to Lever, the club was fuming after its performance rather than patting themselves on the back for out scoring West Coast 2 goals to 1 in the last quarter.

However, It's probably as good a time as ever to be an under performing coach with a few years of security. I don't think pay-outs are going to be very trendy over the next couple of years.

Having said all that, Goodwin should be capable of winning at least 7 games this year which will ensure he goes into 2021, albeit under a little pressure. We should be splitting wins and losses over the Norths, St Kilda''s Sydney's and Essendons of the league to get us to 7 or so wins.

As for Ross Lyon for 2021, I wouldn't rule him out.

Interesting. In a post that seems years ago I said that 8 wins would see him safe for 2021. That of course assumed a 22 game season so 7 wins in  a 17 game season is a fair call.

I have little confidence in either the gameplan or our player development. Would love to be proved wrong because if we go 0-3 the interest in the season will drop to near zero for many of us.

2018 is looking like the anomoly.

Unbelievable that our fwd line delivery is so pathetic. Still.

You can believe in miracles but its fantasy to think he is going to magically turn this around.

Pointless thread Lyon will never Coach Melb even if he coaches again.  Goody will Coach us in 2021 and 2022....we forget very quickly theysteady improvement under him from 2016-18 time for stability and sticking with program...2018 being the anomaly is a ridiculous statement only repeated because Gary Lyon said it

Why?? If we play similarly to last year then we would be negligent in not assessing all avenues regardless of the changes that this season promises.Part of the process would have to be looking at ALL personel including coach. I would not discount Ross Lyon from any such conversation if we had another poor season!

Never say Never!

I'd prefer Yze has been under the coach of the century. Hawthorn have a pretty good record with their assistant coaches with the exception of Bolton.

Maybe not as coaches, but these guys have "contacts" if we wanted to augment our "revenue stream".

No to Lyon, is still have hope for Goodwin but 2020/2021 are huge years when you look at the age of certain players on the list. If we have another bottom 4 finish then I do think Goodwin should be in the cross hairs, but I don't think Lyon is the answer.

    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

    CROWDOWN by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons open their 2020 season account with a "home" game against the Adelaide Crows at Casey Fields. It’s been more than 5 and half agonising months for the team and supporters who are eager to atone for the disappointing 2019 season which saw the Dees go from Preliminary Finalist to 2nd bottom on the ladder. The preseason campaign has been a hard slog with the addition of respected High Performance Manager Darren Burgess. We caught a glimpse of the gut busting sessions in the Melbourne

    THE YEAR THE SKY FELL by The Oracle

    After a number of years of linear movement up the ladder, the Melbourne Football Club unexpectedly went into serious decline in 2019, slumping from fourth to 17th in a season that coach Simon Goodwin described “a complete wipe-out”. Those around the club who tried to analyse the apocalyptic events that unfolded during the year were hard pressed to find a single reason for the debacle but the most plausible explanation was that the club’s troubles stemmed from a lack of fitness and injuries that

    BACK IN STYLE by Whispering Jack

    From the moment when the Elton John character in the movie “Rocketman” burst into its opening scene dressed as a flamboyant demon on his way to an addiction rehabilitation session, the game was on. Here was yet another film about a person gifted with a meteoric rise to stardom finding coke, booze and a hedonistic lifestyle that led directly to a destructive crash into the abyss. Ultimately, these stories end in total disaster (“A Star is Born”, “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Judy”) but this one resulted

    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

    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
