  1. I was thinking I might take a break from watching any footy programs on TV tonight (usually find it kida demotivating after a loss), but then I remembered that Simon Goodwin will be appearing on Fox Footy's 'On The Couch' program tonight. Will be interested in what he has to say.
  2. Congratulations to Michelle Cowan given the gig again to coach the Melbourne Demons female team! Hopefully they get a lot of support this year, great crop of players! http://www.melbournefc.com.au/news/2014-03-14/cowan-excited-to-coach-demons-again
  3. Let the mayhem begin Melbourne coach Mark Neeld has been sacked, and now the Dees want premiership mentor Paul Roos
  4. Any word on when they are looking at naming a new coach. I am thinking after the season but over recent season there have been a few who have been named during finals. Does anyone know when this may happen
  5. Last year I was savaged by posters on this site for pointing out the bleeding obvious. I will state it again. Neeld is missing a major skill required to have success as a senior coach. This is the skill to be able to get the most out of your players. Neeld has no ability to create the confidence and self belief required to be an AFL coach. The number of players who play as a shadow of the players they were prior to last season in staggering. Virtually all players have gone backwards despite them being mostly low draft picks, young and up coming. I watch as our x players who were moved on suddenly find there lost ability at new clubs and point to this as further evidence. At the same time our recruits from other clubs suddenly struggle to get a kick, struggle to play. I said it last year and I will say it again now. Neeld is not our man. He may be tough and smart, he may have a good footy brain but he is missing the skill of installing self belief and confidence while still being tough. He must be sacked ASAP. The perfomances since he became coach have been beyond appauling. Come season end we will see another wave of our better players asking to be traded or leaving through free agency if we don't get someone in who can install the most important thing in football........ self belief. Further we will be unable to trade for any quality recruit as the MFC will continue to seen as poison for any players career. We must get rid of Neeld before more damage is done.
  6. As reported on MFC site: "MELBOURNE ball movement coach Mark Williams, midfield coach Scott West and fitness manager Joel Hocking have departed the club." Hang on to your hats people ...
