LDU is back.

If Jack stays in the middle, and Jy is sent to rot (again) on a flank, Brad has to go.
I know Jack had a good game, but at best he can rotate in, Jy's form in the midfield has been much much more impressive and damaging from a game perspective.

Needs to be LDU & Jy in the centre bounce.

Has to go anyway. The time is NOW.

Loved the way Simpkin took the game on. Yeah he made some mistakes, but the safe and solid path hasn't exactly served us well for 15 years.

last 5 weeks since his move to the midfield...:
21 disposals, 10.4 contested possessions, 3.4 clearances, 0.8 goals per game in only 70% game time.

i stand by my old posts in here. this guy is going to be an elite inside mid, a complete mid in fact. he is one of the most talented footballers in the league. i take great pleasure in watching him play.

i liked it when he dummied that bloke on the mark on the half back flank then casually dropped a left hand bounce as he ran away. i get a kick out of small moments like that regardless of what ever else is happening in the game.

hes also more dangerous around goal as a mid without a lockdown small defender on him. got to good spots a lot and could have kicked a few more.
