The harsh truth facing diabolical Demons


//

Melbourne club legend Garry Lyon has suggested that it is time for the club to reassess the season following a dismal showing against St Kilda.

After coming into the season widely tipped to be a top-four side, the Demons have floundered in the first month of the season, having won just one of its first five matches.

Speaking to Fox Footy at half-time of the Demons' clash against St Kilda, Lyon discussed the plight of his old team.

"It’s time for reassessment," he said.

Nathan Jones

"We say 'upset', (but) fifth versus 16th coming in was the reality — and we’ve got to face up to that now.

"This St Kilda side has really rebounded after a disappointing year — and Melbourne have barely fired a shot.

"Some harsh realities are slapping Melbourne fans right in the face here.

"Your eyes tell you when you’re watching this, this is a St Kilda side full of belief who know how they want to play and go and execute it really well and this is a Melbourne side that was sluggish, slow."

Simon Goodwin

The pressure is now squarely on the head of Demons coach Simon Goodwin for answers, a stark contrast to his counterpart Alan Richardson who was widely expected to be fired at the end of the season.

Speaking to Fox Footy at three-quarter time of the loss to the Saints, Goodwin admitted that his side had failed in all areas.

"We were poor around the ball," he said.

"They’re transitioning the ball way too easily from one end of the ground to the other. We’re not connecting in the way we’d like and they’re stretching our defence and they’re scoring easy goals.

The task for Goodwin and the Demons gets no easier in Round 6, with a date against a resurgent Richmond side at the MCG on Wednesday night.
