I don't have much faith in Goodwin. Not really sure what his attributes are, and like everyone else, can't stand his pressers. The only thing he is touted to be good at is "relationships" and I guess the lack of rumors of players leaving or discontent amongst the group after the horrible year can be used as evidence of that.

I'm being optimistic hoping he was being heavily influenced tactically by Jennings and McCartney and that their replacements will help fix the game plan. Also hoping Burgess can elevate the 2 way running of our mids.

Stability can be very important, and something we have lacked in the last decade. This is all i see Goodwin providing at this stage. If how we are playing depends on having our best 22 fit or if the team is playing way differently than he wants, it shows he is a bad coach. If his gameplan is derived heavily from assistant coaches it shows he has no tactical nous, but we might be able to change in the future. This is what i'm hoping for.

Jared Rivers talking to North - love to bring him back to our coaching panel.

Don't want to go us far as Adelaide in regards to an old boys club, but if it is true that Viney is leaving (heard them talking about it on SEN yesterday morning) then Rivers and Yze might be good at filling the void of past players linked to the club.

Also wonder if Crossy's role might get upgraded - seems to be highly respected, obviously his greatest asset is regarding strength and preparation but he also was a bloody good footballer so may well have the smarts to do a broader coaching role.

It was frustrating as all the crazy goody content dried up this year as our form slumped. Its like he went further and further into his shell as the pressure mounted. The only way we turn it around in 2020 is if Goody goes full crazy mode - like using made up words again in press conferences and wearing weird hats inside and sh*t.

Please Goody, we beg you

Well I just sort of feel he was doing a good job at port MELBOURNE (although I haven’t check in since I lived there 5 years ago) and would be way better than goodwin

I don’t think we can develop coaching talent, and I don’t think we can attract top talent but I reckon he is a bloody good coach and would do a lot more than Goodwin can

I have no facts whatsoever to back up my point of view

Something that could be introduced to the MCG when we play?

I went to a batting cage in Tokyo last week after we lost to Wales in the rugby. Was an amazing anger reliever.
