God the nuffies on the GC board are hard at it.
We're up to the denial stage where supposed 'GC reporters secretly knew that they were going to phase him out of the squad and they wanted to get rid of him'.
Can't wait to see what else they come up with.

My 3yo wanted to watch the story three times (for some insane reason he has always loved "Tim" and for natural reasons he loves "blue and white north melbum") but the longer he went I realised that the Greenwood crazy eyes probably made him look like something out of PJ Masks.

feel like UG hasn't watched any of Will's matches this year.

Elite user, clever vision, quick, clean, can find the ball already.... What's not to like?

At the very least, consider the fact he had interrupted seasons due to COVID.

He will be a star in a very talented midfield.

lol at his opinion on Carlton too. We dismantled them by 7 goals? They are still a long way off especially when it comes to disposal by foot. Horrendous.

Anyway, we gotta look at our midfield more closely. This is a genuinely elite spread of talent that can take us all the way. We're onto something here.

From the constant stream of deluded rambling id say he doesn't watch at all.

7 goals? Thats what SevLarkey buried through the big ones. That game may have been a 7 goal win but it should have been a 20 goal win. We destroyed every component of their game plan, they are soft as sh*t! And Will is a very good player. His low centre of gravity in contests is a weapon. He is inside/outside. I was in the camp of McDonald, I retracted my statement after watching his first couple of games for us. He has the goods

He is a elite tackler too. His defensive pressure has been some of the best we’ve seen over the past few years

Hugh adds that extra layer of defensive ability when opposition get a run on. We managed to steady the ship better as the year went on but it was clear we needed more experience in there.

When he gets his opportunity (and he will), I would expect him to be the leading front in terms of applying defensive pressure when momentum swings. Suddlenly that easy outlet becomes a rushed kick, and it's on.

Greenwood can and has played forward and back. I think your dream of fielding a midfield with an average age <20 won't happen.

I have been saying it for over two years, we want to rotate as many through the middle as we can. Unrelenting and you must be able to play elsewhere and have at least one elite trait.
