Not the kids fault but why bring him in to play midfield when gus and harmes are already starving for them and playing out of position

Agree to an extent. but we never should have drafted him. But it is his fault when he handballs backwards 20 meters out from goal for no reason and misses the target, which he has done multiple times in the game.

To Hell and Back.    What an arrogant bunch of flogs to sell that rubbish to us. 

That's the way guys, let's get stuck into the 7th gamer when all of our core leaders are playing poorly. You muppet, he's possibly one of about 2 of our players who are playing well.

Triple M commentary:  "Simon Goodwin standing 3 metres from me with his thumb in his mouth,  clueless what to do next. " Says it all really.

Abysmal.

Absolutely abysmal.

It's the Richmond game, and everything that is wrong with our club, on repeat.

The turnovers are just soul destroying. Sparrow, Harmes, Salem, almost every single one of their touches is missing its target. We cannot compete with anyone, let alone Port, if we keep turning it over.

The forward line pressure is non-existent. 

The midfield got belted on the outside in the first quarter and then got beaten on the inside in the second quarter (-4 CPs that quarter).

The backline is trying to hold them out but they are getting so many looks at inside 50s under no pressure that it's impossible to defend.

We will lose this by at least 10 goals if we don't seriously lift in the middle and start hitting some [censored] targets.

Fritsch, Salem, Oliver, Viney, McDonald, Harmes.

Most overrated bunch of peanuts on our list.

I’d remove Viney from that list the others I totally agree with.

Nathan Jones encapsulates our club. Historic losers going to water under pressure . . . And accepting it. He can't play again. We have to move on. 

We come off a couple of wins, looking sharp and confident. AvB breaks a cheek and of all the players to bring in facing the top 2 teams back to back.

I predicted a 5 goal win. Nek minnit. Down by 5 goals at halftime.

Im trying to think its the quick turnaround but its not. Its just us.

This is your [censored] test Goodwin.. make a change earn your money. We won't win but get us back in the fight. 

 

 

Couldn’t agree more GCDee. 
 

Get us out of this zone [censored] which is clearly not working and go man on man. 
 

JUST DO SOMETHING FFS.

Well said. What they dish up on and off the field is pure garbage and an absolute insult to fans and members. The club is a joke and goodwin has to go.

Nope, we are not allowed to criticise Oliver. His kicking has been excellent and his hot potato handballs to the disadvantage of his team mates don't matter, cause it's still a stat and that's all that matters.

I see Josh Mahoney in the coaches box and I wonder how he can keep his job. We are miles off being a professional team and he and Goodwin have had plenty of time to make us competitive.

The list is not this bad. Something stinks.

We have been absolutely shocking, but the umpires have shown us zero love. Tackles unrewarded, holding the man ignored, clear sliding in on legs given as high tackle, soft 50 penalty gifting them a goal (while Gawns gets ignored). I have to get that frustration out of the way.

But we look flat as a tack, no one moving, when we get the ball in space we are slow to move it on. Our kicking efficiency must be about 30%, absolutely pathetic. Our overall disposal efficiency must be barely 50%, basic handballs are being missed, players slipping over. I just can't believe how bad we are playing.

Lions was the game we needed to win to stay in the hunt, facing Port off a short break seems like too much.

That’s terrifying. 9 years, 2 rebuilds and 3 coaches later and we’re still a bottom team getting spanked. Us Melbourne supporters must be the most loyal people on earth to put up with this much disappointment.

    A WALK IN THE PAST by Whispering Jack

    On Monday night, the Melbourne Football Club handed out four life memberships. Two of those awards went to men who are long gone. Charles ‘Chubby’ Forrester and James ‘Jas’ Byrne played for the club in the 1870s, even before the Victorian Football Association was formed. The other two are current skipper Max Gawn and swingman Tom McDonald, who almost left the club at the end of the pandemic-affected 2020 season. Some fans might have raised their eyebrows and wondered whether the emphasis on hist

    SOUNDS OF SILENCE by Whispering Jack

    This was my first game for points involving the Demons in more than a year and a half and the long march to Carrara turned out to be worthwhile. The game was won in a single withering quarter that was dominated by Melbourne on the back of an outstanding display from Karen Paxman. The four-time All Australian picked up 13 touches for the stanza to set up a five goal to nothing second term after a lacklustre start in which the cleaner, sharper Gold Coast notched up the first two goals of the game

    BRIDESMAIDS AGAIN by Whispering Jack

    Historians of the future will have little difficulty in finding words to define the year 2020. “Covid-19”, “pandemic” and “plague” come readily to mind. The Covid-19 pandemic dominated the year in every aspect of life and it certainly didn’t spare AFL football or the Melbourne Football Club. In the circumstances however, it didn’t treat it as badly as the Spanish Flu epidemic which raged a century earlier from February 1918, through 1919 and into 1920 when it finally petered out in April of

    THE TASMANIAN TIGER by Whispering Jack

    I first saw Ben Brown on a cold Tuesday night in May, 2013 playing for the Werribee Tigers against Queanbeyan in a televised Foxtel Cup game before a sparse crowd at Etihad Stadium. His teammate and former Demon Jordan Gysberts was the star of the side’s 85-point belting of the hapless ACT club but the then 20 year old, 200cm Brown was also a stand out.  Earlier that year, the athletic big man had left his native Tasmania in an effort to make the grade after being overlooked in three drafts

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2020 by The Oracle

    Part One: The Cure It could be coincidental but since the AFL Free Agency and Trade Period began, the State of Victoria has recorded eight consecutive days of no new active cases and no deaths from Covid19. It might be a little early to announce that a cure for this dreaded virus has been discovered but one thing can be said with some certainty after following the ins and outs of the free agency and trading process — mankind is still a long way off finding a cure for boredom. That stat

    CHANGES 2020 by The Oracle

    Part One: A very strange year Things might have been somewhat hairy when the 1919 football season opened up in the wake of the ending of a world war and in the middle of a pandemic that took millions of lives but it’s difficult to imagine a more unusual football season than the one that ended a week or so ago. For starters, the footy is supposed to finish on that one day in September on the MCG in mild spring weather; not deep into October at the Gabba amid warnings of tropical storms and h

    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
