Oooh do tell/link?The most appealing thing about this dude (apart from his Pantene hair) is his attitude. Hearing how he prepared for the game is nuts for a 19 year old.
I have seen some comparisons for Archie, but the one I can't help but think of is Jarred Brennan when I watch him. He used to do the same thing with guiding the ball downGlad others saw it but his ball drop seemed a little off. Seems to hold ball too low when guiding it down
Longy had a super low ball dropGlad others saw it but his ball drop seemed a little off. Seems to hold ball too low when guiding it down. His overall foot disposal was ok, but aesthetically ball drop doesn’t seem the cleanest.
Love everything else about him though. Speed, strength, football nouse is all there.
Not commenting on his size or ability in a contest. I am talking about the way he turns towards goal with ball in hand and the way he runs from there and puts his head over the ball when he kicks.Don't see this at all.
Caracella was a similar loping player to Langford even without that grunt. Played a bit taller than he was, as a half forward and wingman, but pace and power weren't features of his game.
He was a very neat, very smart player who struggled with the physical side of the game which resulted in problems in Brisbane.
I think the Reimers comments are pretty spot on. The Cook may have ended up somewhat of a running joke but he had some pretty high quality tricks.
It is like a longy ball drop in reverse.....just caught my eye that’s all.Longy had a super low ball drop
as long as it hits the target I don’t care what the ball drop is like
but no Micheal Symons sort of stuff thank you
This is the best comp i have seen yet. Griffen at his peak was about 92kgs though, so Archie may not have his physicality.Someone likened him to Ryan Griffin, and I agree, even wears the 16, Griffin was a jet at his peak.
