He’s having a career best year. Rapt for him. Looks like he’s ready to dominate a game soon. Reckon the form we’re seeing from him now is the minimum we can expect for the rest of his career. Something has twigged for sure.
That's one of those early pivotal moments that gives you a hint of an upset.Great game from Atley, I loved this moment after a shank from Ziebell. It was at this moment I felt things were really starting to go our way. Also shows just how fast Dustin Martin is.
Rubbish. There was nothing stopping him displaying the composure he’s shown this year in past years.He's played all of his career under a rigid structure.
It would be good to see him freed up to play more instinctively.
Yeah I thought the same, you can usually tell by a few lucky bounces or a passage of play like Higgins shrugging (not one, not two, but three tackles only to handball to Polec who kicks a freak goal) that it’s going to be our night.That's one of those early pivotal moments that gives you a hint of an upset.
I know this because I'm very alert to it happening the other way around. Usually when someone like Liam Picken dragged down a mark between Thompson, Tarrant, Goldstein and Petrie and let you know "this night is probably not going to be the one you thought it would".
My one query of Shaun is why, almost every time he plays on, does he take a bounce after 1-2 steps ? he has the pace to put the foot down, build up a bit of momentum, and get some separation and time to asess options, and not give opposition time to pressure/tackle.
Good choice not to include the kick in that gif
When I opened BF this morning this thread was right below the "Do weThe juxtaposition of him showcasing the poise and new ceiling that he's displayed this year, with the same old **** that used to let him down so frequently.
