    I think he has a future here. His best was brilliant and i don't think that he has past his best either.

    Maybe more of a role in the middle or up forward as a pinch hitter could be good for him.

    Re: 33. Adam McPhee

    He, like many others, seems to be lacking motivation IMO. His best game of the year was against the pies when he was playing on Thomas and they had a bit of a scuffle which seemed to make him determined to dominate Thomas, which he did. I'd at least look to trade at the end of the year.

    Mcphee needs to work on consistent disposal. Sometimes its good, sometimes its bad

    I would say probably 60% of the time his disposal puts another team mate under immediate pressure. He is very frustrating to watch at times.

    i just think that he really hates losing. and when the team is down on confidence it puts too much pressure on mcphee to perform

    Was pretty impressed with him up forward. Would like to see him play there again.

    Likewise, he was bloody brilliant up around HF/Wing. Looks much better there than at Half Back.

    Re: 33. Adam McPhee

    Attention anyone who may be involved with Essendon....

    Please trade Adam McPhee while he still has currency

    Plays his own game, turns the ball over, along with Welsh has been the heart of Essendons 'pretending' culture for the past 4 years.

    For us to progress we need to move him on and stock up on quality for the next generation.

    Lets see some hard calls to get some real quality back into this club and realistically challenge for a flag in the next few years.

    Re: 33. Adam McPhee

    at his best he is a gun.
    i'd only trade him in a 3-way deal involving judd. we wouldn't get a top 10 pick for him, whilst mcphee plus a decent player would be too much to give away for a high pick

    Not at his best enough and his worst is 'game loosing'.

    See if we can trick Adelaide and swap him for Thomson.

    The start of a new era
    Re: 33. Adam McPhee

    I will be happy with either of those nicknames as they are far better than Fumbles, which has been an appropriate nickname for the last 2 years.

    It is now time for Mcphee.

    I was all for trading him this year, if we could get the right players/draft choice but we didn't, so we now need him to step up and deliver.

    He is now an important player from a leadership pov, with all the experience we have lost now, so we need him to take the next step or he needs to be shown the biggest step, out the door.

    Now or Never..........

    Re: 33. Adam McPhee

    Im confident he'll be able to turn it around this year.

    Knights has said McPhee will playing wing/half forward this year, and he looked very comfortable playing there when he was given the opportunities this year so i think that the more time he spends down there, the more dangerous he could become and will probably become a very hard player to match up on in the future.

    Re: 33. Adam McPhee

    I really hope he pushes into the midfield to tell you the truth.

    That's where he can use his body and his pace to full effect in my opinion. In the last 3 years, I just feel that he's sat off it far too much in the backline. The midfield could be the place where he can be the dynamic running player that he was in 2004.

    As Merv said, he has to be big in 2008.

    Confident that he will be back to his best in 08'. Hope he moves into the midfield.

    Re: 33. Adam McPhee

    He was always destined for a crack at the midfield and I think it could come off. His got the body to shrug off tackles and the pace to get the ball moving forward, I think its time to unleash him. His a much better kick when he isnt making a decision out of defence, and as seen in the past can kick a goal when he drifts forward. Might be the move he needs to get back to his awesome days.

    Re: 33. Adam McPhee

    I actually think that HFF will suit him. Hes got a strong body and is great overhead. Hes also got a thumping kick and is mobile. Many people on BF wanted him to be traded but i think hes still got a lot to offer and to become one of our leaders. He works hard and is always in great shape

    Re: 33. Adam McPhee

    I think he is an Absolute Star!
    I wouldnt want to Trade him unless we got a more then fair deal.
    But I sometimes wonder what happened to His 2004 Form...
    He Must Deliver this year.
    How do you think he will Play as a HFF?
    I'm not too sure How well it well Work with Lloyd and Lucas, They might smother him or something?
