    Yep I knew that. I was just hoping he'd get back from usa and get stuck into it. Get to know the guys and show a bit of dedication like thurlow.

    Haha Menzel is a specialist forward. He is very clever and knows where to run, how to find the footy and when to create opportunities for team mates. Most of the younger guys on our list are still learning these crafts and rely a little more on being in the right spot at the right time. Dan just does it better than this guys atm.

    I think it is guaranteed he will play round 1.

    He spoke about the challenges of four knee recos meaning he had to back himself in and he's doing just that. He seems to have real character and that bit of confidence and flair we need. I reckon he should be planning to play Round 1.

    Spoke pretty honestly and openly and that's refreshing.

    Just want to wish you guys the best of luck with Dan. He is a much loved player at Geelong and I’m sorry that he was forced to seek “other opportunities”. Even if he only plays 3 massive games for you guys in September, then he’s been a steal. Good luck next year.

    Just got to wait until Chris Scott falls out of love with him, which, if he’s played as a forward next year will be pretty soon....

    I don't really take anything Garry Lyon says seriously any more. He's carved out a media career being a drama queen about everything and blowing little things way out of proportion to build hype. I get the importance of forward pressure but if Menzel's kicking 40 goals a year for us I think it's disingenuous to say he's also giving up 40 goals a year. We have some good young pressure forwards supporting him and a whole midfield and backline to get through as well.

    Tim Watson's comments were a little more measured and probably valid. It'll be interesting to see how it plays out. I think he's best 22 but defensive accountability is in the Sydney DNA so Menzel will be challenged to develop the defensive side of his game to earn his spot.

    i said the same thing a couple of weeks ago. it seems perfectly reasonable to me and explains why no-one but us wanted him.

    Probably the same reason no one but us wanted Mitch Morton a few years ago. Cheap as chips but if it goes right, he can keep us relevant in terms of a p'ship with his x factor.
    If he ends up not playing a game then it is only a 1 year contract. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

    OK but that is exactly what he did to Moreton.

    Any forward line that kicks as few goals as ours is not working well. It could all come down to too much emphasis on Lance. Yes we need to improve in the mids. But that has been taken care of in the draft and by moving Mills and Jones to the mids

    McCartin is a KPP not a third option. A third option is about 186-190cm. McCartin is 194. He is a true KPP

    I blame our midfield for it though as our forwards did not get the ball enough and would often have to move higher up the ground to help the midfield out. A dominant midfield would allow the forwards to stay closer to the forward line and would also give better service to the forwards as well.

    He still does the worst of shanks though. That point running into an open goal or the set shots where he either kicks OOF from 10-20 metres out or just gets it in for a point are woeful.
