Yze, whose title is technically 'senior assistant', will be in charge of the midfield in 2021 apparently.

One out of left field:  How would folks feel about Daisy Pearce as an assistant coach? Has an excellent footy brain regarding game plans, strategy and opp analysis and highly respected.  She was

Apparently we can start expecting a bit more news in this area the next few days or so. The coaches are having the review findings presented to them along with the changes to staff and structure

Voss sounds quite content at Port. Gives the impression his next move will be for a senior coach position. Pity. I was hoping he would join our coaching set-up.

Voss was spoken to by a contingent of Demon people, who met him personally, he respectfully declined joining us at this stage. 
The Club has been Flat out since Round 17 finished

Thanks for sharing LN.

God i hope he can work out the midfield/forward connection now and be ready for next season. I dont want to hear we still have this problem during next seasons games or it will drive me FURTHER nuts than i am already. 18 months of not fixing the problem is long enough FFS.

Good. Hopefully he puts a couple of players who played like him in the midfield mix. Ie. Players who can receive handballs and kick

Interesting.   He should take Salem under his wing.... always thought he had the potential to be as good as Ooze but for some reason he has stagnated.

Lets see what he can do with the excess big mids in Harmes and Brayshaw.

Good move with Ooze mids have a blank  book when starting and go from there .

Salem nit harsh actually though he raised the bar this lady half if season. Seemed more urgent and wanted to run harder and move the ball much Quicker 

Very happy If he continues this way but Harmes and Brayshaw need a new teacher and Ooze could be a master stroke.

Dean Solmoman. 

Hated him as a player for Essendon but have heard great things and would love him as an assistant. 

Hope we've asked the question.

Amen to that, from what I've been told really loved by players who he has worked with.

By all accounts very adaptable to the targeted player he is conveying the message to in order to get the best out of them

i think his business interests in seq will keep him up there; like leppitsch, he's another highly regarded assistant who is 'taking a break' from the hurly-burley of it all

I thought he was made redundant. if so, should be getable.

Salem has the potential to be kicking a lot of goals and being a serious weapon for us, just as Yze was.

I haven't been impressed with the calibre of assistant coaches at this club. I think having top notch assistants will help us be a destination club. 

I get that big successful names doesn't necessarily translate into them automatically being great coaches but it sure helps sell the club. 

The names of some of our current and past assistants doesn't inspire confidence to outsiders.

Anyone got a list of all the clubs and their assistants? Yeah I could Google but hey it's a public holiday and I'm not supposed to work today.

I agree but he needs to be playing on wing or in the middle for that to occur. I can't see them playing him there and not many opportunities to kick goals off half back or in the back pocket. 

Yze never played in Salem's position.

More just that it's unlikely assistants will commit to roles at other clubs if there's a senior position at stake.

    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.

    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

    A- Alice Springs. Happy hunting ground.     B- Backline. Finally found the non-leaking version.   C- Cairns & Covid. How a season was ruined.    D- Demonland. Mental Health facility run by the inmates.   E- The grade you get when you don’t make F- F- Finals. What are they? G- Goals. Lack of them. Need a forward who can kick them….lots! H- Hub. Where players got to live with people you can’t stand. I- Injuries. Miracle cure provided by Dr. Burgess.

    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
