We tried for Adem last year to no avail and haven’t given up which has resulted in him coming on board. 
I said earlier in this thread that out coaching staff is probably the most underwhelming group in the league outside of NMFC. Made up of okay past players and VFL coaches but otherwise very inexperienced. 
I’m anticipating the appointment of Yze and hopefully another strong assistant will be just what Goodwin needs for support even though I’m still not sold on Goodwins capabilities. 
 

I also agree in part to the sentiment that if Goodwin fails to make finals again next year then Yze would be a logical replacement. 

Agree Steve.

What i like about this appointment is that he does bring 10 years of coaching experience, a dozen flags and success. He like Gary Pert know what it takes to be a successful club.

I know for a fact he had a fantastic relationship with the Hawks players and they loved him. Don't underestimate how big of a loss this is for the Hawks just like when Fagan left them.

You did call this last year @Lord Nev
I think Yze was keen on coming to melbourne last year. But hawthorn held him to his deal, which speaks to the regard in which they hold him

Hawthorn held him to his deal but he also signed an extension to 2022 at that time (which was immediately after his "failed" interview for the Crows coaching position).

Knew it would take no time for some to use the Yze appointment to start undermining Goodwin - predictable, tedious, half-cocked. 'Yawn', all right.

Yze has applied for head coaching roles before, was effectively 2IC to Clarkson and has all the necessary coaching badges. It looks very much to me that Yze is being lined up for the top job.

Perhaps Goodwin will come good but if he doesn't the club have a ready made replacement. Now i'm not sure Yze is the answer, i'd prefer an experienced hire if Goodwin is sacked but he's a good insurance policy and many more knowledgeable people than I who think he has the chops for the top job. Could turn out to be a very smart move by Pert.

Whilst I like his appointment from a talent point of view, the fact we are already looking at getting in new assistants basically states that Goodwin isn't going anywhere and for that reason alone, I hate this appointment!

Hardwick had all his assistant coaches replaced before he almost got the boot. Worked for the Tigers.

Who are Brisbane assistant coaches?? How many AFL games did they play along with Fagan???

Yeah the Hawthorn IP has long been something missing in our coaching make up.

We've brought it in from Essendon, Collingwood, Bulldogs, St Kilda, and others, but an ex-Hawthorn assistant is a strong addition.

Plenty of Geelong too.

If they put in strong assistants and don't perform because of Goodwin's ineptitude, then glad we have a very highly rated assistant who would be ready to take the reins. Can't make much of the review without seeing the other changes.

We need Pert to come out with a detailed explanation after he finishes his review to explain why he has made the changes he has made and why he hasn't made others. I need to understand what the club sees in Goodwin who has underperformed with the list at his disposal, the list built under his guidance. Richmond and Port Adelaide were able to identify their issues and turn them around to save Hardwick and Hinkley respectively. Goodwin has not been able to solve the issue of scoring without leaking goals, he either does one and not the other; we also don't have a recognizable consistent game style. Still more questions than answers at this stage.

Hi all. Been a while.

Yze coming home

Well Chook you were spot on, congratulations for filling us all with some hope on the future direction of our beloved Club.

MFC are really getting their "Ducks" lined up going into 2021, just a few more signatures to ease the anxiety, but this has really lifted my expectations going forward.

Thanks Adem for coming home with your great skill set and thanks MFC for recognising a great signing.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So damn excited to see Ooze back at the MFC. He was my favourite player as a kid and I think this appointment will surpass any player we might get over the trade period for me.

He's going to have a huge impact.

Great news and welcome back Adem Yze. Its a bit of a rarity to have an ex MFC player in coaching panel. I think  that he may be the first since Greg Hutchison back in the 90's. Looking forward to 2021 already. Keep the good news coming MFC.

The Albanian has returned.

I know who is favourite player is going to be at Melbourne. Wears long sleeves, plays on a wing. Hopefully he can sharpen his kicking skills too.

Wears the great Stan Alves number too.

    THE YEAR THE SNOWFLAKES FELL by Whispering Jack

    The snow that fell on the slopes of Victoria’s mountain districts in the winter of 1965 was not considered good enough to satisfy the enthusiasts. The really heavy snow that season came in two waves further north in July and August. The first descended on the national capital where “Pig Iron Bob” still held sway. Snow flurries touched the landscape all the way across the Blue Mountains. The next big snow extended further north up to the hills around Mackay in Queensland. Snowflakes fell inside t

    DEES GIVE DOGS A BONE by George On The Outer

    First place versus second on the ladder promised to be a precursor to what can be expected in the coming finals race.  However, it was the Demons who faltered and gave the Bulldogs a bone to feed their hunger just weeks out from the end of the season. The win also sent the Dogs to the top of the ladder, a position they are unlikely to cede in the coming weeks, given their fixture. While Melbourne may now struggle to keep a spot in the top four with its draw and will likely depend on the res

    THE WORM WILL TURN by The Oracle

    When I was asked to preview this game, I wasn’t sure whether it was going to be played in Darwin, on the Gold Coast or the MCG. I had no idea as to the identity of Melbourne’s opponent. This would have made for one hell of an interesting match preview so I’m glad that the AFL managed to reorganize its fixture to enable a game … any game at all … to proceed in Round 19. We’ll worry about the Gold Coast Suns or whoever they put us up against when the weekend’s done and dusted and if and when

    DRAWN AND DEEFLATED by George on the Outer

    1st v 17th ... it would seem a sure one way contest between the Hawks and the Demons but it was not to be with the game finishing in a draw, the only positive being the Demons still retain their top spot on the ladder. Melbourne was taught a football lesson by Al Clarkson, who with limited resources, just instructed his players to scrap, fight and surge the ball forward.  It stifled the Melbourne free flowing style of play and denied them the opportunities they could normally expect.

    PINK RAIN by Whispering Jack

    There is no certainty about life under a pandemic. You wake up one morning without a care in the world; the sun’s shining and it’s a beautiful day. An hour later, everything’s up in the air, the entire state is on high alert and the apartment complex next door’s in lockdown. The simple decision you had to make about buying a ticket to the footy at the weekend suddenly might get put on the back burner. There are other things in life to prioritise and on top of that, they’re predicting rain for th

    COR BLIMEY by KC from Casey

    In years to come, the old timers will talk in wonderment about the “Avalon Avalanche” that hit Werribee’s Avalon Airport Oval on a mild winter’s afternoon at about ten minutes after the halfway mark of the game between the local Tigers and their cross town rivals, the Demons from Casey. At that moment in time, the game was poised as if on a knifepoint. Up until the main interval, it had been the visiting team which had maintained the lead from the start but it had struggled to entirely asse

    POWER FAILURE by George on the Outer

    South Australians should be well familiar with the damage that storms can do to the power supply.  But Port Power forgot those lessons on Thursday night football as they watched the Melbourne storm descend upon them from across the border and ruin their hopes of a top four placing. Just as equally, the win to the Demons cemented their spot in the top two and sent out the message that a team who had been going around in circles for the past couple of weeks, has in fact, turned into a cyclone

    CASEY SUFFER FIRST DEFEAT IN TWO YEARS

    The circumstances were a little unusual last Saturday night as KC from Casey was unavailable to report on the Casey Dees due to work commitments. On the ground things were somewhat unusual as well given that, although there was a game to be won on the night, preparations were also being made for the forthcoming Thursday night clash against Port Adelaide with Ben Brown rested for large slabs of the evening. It turned out perhaps, to be a stroke of genius for Melbourne with Brown making a strong c

    WEATHERING THE STORM by Mel Rundle

    The magic of Melbourne’s magnificent start to 2021 is beginning to wear off. In its past six matches it lost to three teams that were outside the eight, out of form —  teams which it had very little trouble bearing last year. This week, the temperature is turned up even higher with the hard fought spot in the top four at risk. The really ominous factor about the Demons’ upcoming Thursday night meeting with Port Adelaide this week is that it is due to take place at the very place where its dec

    FEE-FI-FO-FUM by George on the Outer

    “Fee-fi-fo-fum, without a Full Forward the Premiership can’t be won!” So said the GWS Giants, as they exposed Melbourne’s fatal deficiency with a nine point win at the MCG.  In past weeks Melbourne has been barely able to gloss over the lack of a serious target in front of goal, while others were able to contribute.  But in a near repeat of the game from the previous week, players running up the ground simply had no-one to kick the ball to, when all that was needed was that one tall target.

    MUCH ADO ABOUT EVERYTHING by Whispering Jack

    Let's face it. We Melbourne supporters are a demanding lot. Here we are with our team on top of the ladder with a record of 12 wins and 2 losses, a decent percentage and a fair run home for a team with finals credentials. We have a fit list with lots of in form players, many of who are in contention for All Australian and other high honours, the team’s playing with purpose and cohesion and its VFL affiliate is undefeated and going gangbusters.  Still, we're all walking around with conc

    HIATUS by KC from Casey

    After their five week Covid19 lockdown hiatus, the Casey Demons were fairly scratchy against Essendon VFL for the best part of 2½ quarters on Sunday afternoon but they finally settled down to motor away to a 48 point victory. With 20 AFL affiliated players on the team sheet, the Casey line up looked the strongest team ever put together since linking up with the Demons but the team struggled to score in the early going and managed its first goal to Aaron vandenBerg late in the first term.
