The more I think about.....

The more I listen to opinions.....

The more I think that Kevin Sheedy will coach us next year!

It all seems to be falling into place....

If Sheedy coaches next year, it will be with the Red 'n Blue!

The interesting ( well to me ) is the liitel thing that Kev obviously wants a crack at the job otherwise he wouldnt bother goinf to see teh club. Its HE who is in the box seat.

Now I could be reading this all wrong, but it looks to be a signal from Sheeds to say to the MFC..."well guys...are you serious ...I am !! "

and after all he only has to lighten the black to a dark blue :-))))))))))))))))))))

The way sheeds is also ie that he wants to coach we might get him because there is only so much jobs going around each year and if he doesnt take it if offerd he may not get one in the future as he is getting older.

Just curious if we were to get Sheedy (which i hope we do); How many years contract would you give Him?

I reckon a three year deal would be the go. Short term contracts mean short term thinking and that will not win us a flag.

Its a damn exciting thought, the great Kevin Sheedy at the Greatest oldest club in the league. Reminds me of Norm Smith, Barrassi, Neale Balme (well maybe not).

However got to remember that everyone thought John Longmuire was sure thing last year for the Saints then Ross Lyon came from no where.

But very exciting. Hopefully he doesn't play favour players who try hard over talent.

Id give him a 3 by 3 . Nothing anyone does will perrform miracles in a couple of years though by then some indications of direction ought to be apparent. We will need to see the last of the current 'oldies' ( and no real disrespect to the likes of white and Neeta..but what is...iS !! ) retired and the buds of the new bllom coming forth before the NEW MELBOURNE really emerges.

3 by 3 offers some flexibility whilst facilitating longevity should it be needed and warranted.

Lets just see if Sheedy lasts the process.

It like getting excited about the winner of Big Brother after only one week. (No i dont watch it!)

Bub, Is a "3x3", a clapped out 4 WD car, a nine year contract or a 3 year contract with a further option of one or two 3 year terms?

If its the latter, at whose option is it exercised?

I'll take Sheeds if Sheeds wants us. http://news.realfooty.com.au/sheedy-to-mee...071901-qx3.html

My partner is also a Bummer supporter, and she's already said she'll take a far more active interest in the MFC if Sheeds is appointed.

I'm not sure if Bond would be interested in continuing an assistant coaching role with us, but a Sheeds/Bond combo would suit me just fine.

Apart from a lot of other things, I think the greatest asset Sheedy will give the Demons, is weeding out 'soft-coc.ks' like J. White, B. Green and a few others, while turning players like Johnstone into consistent and strong performers. He doesn't accept mediocrity, nor any half-hearted attempts to play the great game.

I really hope it coaches, and coaches for a number of years at this club, by-george we need something or somebody to get in there with a serious bit of passion and motivation.

Oh I say, 'Go Dees'.

You would have to think that in the manner of accreditations, that he would get 'passes' on many of the tests lined up for the coaching wannabe's .

I would expect the interview to be ..

Well Kev, thanks for coming along. we understand you have a meeting with Martian Seagull Appreciation Society, so we'll keep this brief. Do you want the parking spot next to mine ?

Paul, Steve , gents. Yep, that will do nicely. Cya Monday.

If there is a shortlist of 12 and given Voss (declared) Bomber Thompson and Dean Laidley (not available till after finals) all unavailable hard to think of who else other than ND has been left off the shortlist!! Are there 12 people looking for senior coaching job? Must be going to talk to RDB, Ayres, Timmy Watson, Grant Thomas & Matt Rendell B)

    LANDSLIDE by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons enjoyed the better of their first half against Port Melbourne on Saturday but fell away badly after half time to lose by 43 points. The Borough enjoyed the early break with the game’s opening two goals but the Demons took control to go out to an 8 point lead at quarter time, an advantage that it held for most of the second term until a late goal to the visitors clawed the lead back to a point.  The Casey ruck of Braydon Preuss and Liam Wale-Buxton were on top for most

    SHOULD HAVE ... COULD HAVE by George on the Outer

    West Coast finally put the nail in the Demons 2019 season coffin with a 16 point win, but it was a game that Melbourne should have, could have, but didn’t win. Once again woeful, truly woeful work in the forward line, both kicking for goal and the lazy, cheap efforts of some let the side down. A solitary goal in the final quarter and only 9 goals from 24+ scoring opportunities was the costly difference in the game. The selectors, once again, made a critical error in not selecting

    SCREAM by Whispering Jack

    The Norwegian Expressionist artist Edvard Munch painted a number of versions of his famous work “Scream” and, every time my mind goes back to last year’s Preliminary Final at Optus Stadium between Melbourne and the West Coast Eagles, each and every one of them reverberates through my mind as if my head is being pummeled by a sledgehammer.  When I think of that half time scoreboard from that match showing West Coast at 10.9.69 to Melbourne 0.6.6, I feel like the man standing by the railing,

    NOT GAWN IN 60 SECONDS by George on the Outer

    You might recall a regular segment that once featured on the MFC website entitled, “Gawn in 60 Seconds”, in which Maxy would ask the hard questions of his teammates. However, there was no harder question asked than the one asked collectively of the whole team in the last 60 seconds of Saturday’s game against the Gold Coast Suns.  It was either follow me and my example or the Demons’ season, already hanging flimsily by huuua thread, would be truly “Gorn”.  It was at that stage when thos

    BOILOVER by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons caused the boilover of the season to date when they took on and beat the undefeated ladder leaders Essendon VFL by 41 points at Windy Hill.  The stunning result which was achieved with a season low of eight AFL-listed players, will surely kickstart the Demons’ ailing season after they lost their last two matches as a result of some poor third quarter fade outs against quality opposition. Casey got off to a great start with a mid-air soccer volley goal from Jimmy Munro

    LITTLE RAY OF SUNSHINE by Whispering Jack

    There would be very few among us who would have thought realistically at the start of the season that by the time Melbourne’s Round 8 trip to the Gold Coast came around, the visitors would not only be languishing in 16th place on the ladder, but also be sitting a game behind their hosts. In fact, had the Suns managed to goal late in their opening game against the Saints which they lost by a mere point, the gap between the two sides would have been even wider. Such has been the humiliation o

    UNDERDOGS by KC from Casey

    Thanks to the large injury list at Melbourne, the Casey Demons went into their fifth round clash with Footscray VFL as the underdogs and despite a courageous showing up to half time after conceding the game’s first four goals, their third quarter fade out saw them fall short against quality opposition for the second time in a week. Casey went into the game with only 9 AFL listers after Declan Keilty was called up to make his debut when Tim Smith was forced to pull out of the Melbourne team

    IN THE PINK by George on The Outer

    A five point victory against the eternal nemesis in Hawthorn, didn’t put the Demons back in the black for the 2019 season ... but rather, it added a touch of pink to their fortunes, now showing some sign of life after an underwhelming start to the year. And pink was the most appropriate colour for the side and the supporters, given this game was the annual “Pink Ladies” match.  And none more so than this proud Demon fan who turned up to add his support to the cause and his team at the same

    EASIER SAID THAN DONE by The Oracle

    There is no way of getting around the fact that Melbourne is the disappointment team of the AFL competition and, because it came into the season as a big top four fancy and now sits stone motherless last with a 1-5 win-loss record, it is fast becoming a laughing stock.  The only way in which the Demons can restore any sense of pride, let alone its rapidly diminishing hopes of making the finals is for it to overcome Hawthorn on Saturday in the replay of last year’s preliminary final.

    POINT CRASH by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons went down by the narrowest of margins to a strong Richmond VFL combination in the Round 4 game at Casey Fields on Saturday after a rushed behind  to the Tigers in the game’s dying moments broke the deadlock. In a low scoring game, Casey took the early ascendency after conceding the first goal and held their lead for most of the first half going into the sheds at the main break with an 8 point lead. The Demons were led in defence by key position players, Oscar McDonald

    THE LAST POST by George on the Outer

    The Last Post sounded out in memory of the fallen around a packed MCG at the Anzac Eve match against Richmond. The silence of the crowd assembled was in tribute to those who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country. But the Last Post was also an appropriate symbol of the finals aspirations now gone for the Melbourne Football club, after a mere six rounds of the 2019 Season.   How far has this team fallen!  From a Preliminary final contestant barely six months ago, to cellar dwelle

    THE BRIGHT SIDE by Whispering Jack

    I don’t often agree with Dermott Brereton but he came close to the mark last week when he labelled Melbourne a “team of downhill skiers” that works much harder offensively than it does defensively.  And he was looking at the bright side of the team’s game plan. That proposition has been clear since before the season started. It was obvious from the first JLT game against Richmond when the team leaked multiple goals in a short space of time as players gave metres away to opposition forwards.
