I didn't see yesterday but I doubt that it could have been enough for me not to be demoting him to the rookie list.

Over the course of a season he has been on par with the likes of Alex Morgan and Tom Wallis in terms of his output.

There are signs of what a player might look like but it's a very long way off.

Talking to a bloke last night who knows Jordan. Said he spoke to him last week, Woosha has said Baguley will be getting one more year and Jordan will be his long term replacement for Bags current role

More accurately.. Jordan COULD be his replacement. Needs to progress a fair way.

I love Houlihan! Something about him tells me he will be a star.

He reminds me of.....ready for it haha...

Jay Neagle x Darcy Daniher x Steve Johnson x Jake Stringer x Jesse Hogan = whatever that equals lol.

He appears to have arrogance. I've never meet him though.

That’s the biggest load of rubbish I’ve ever read and I’ve read some bullshit on here in my time

I'd say that the comment probably requires translation, not because Orasia Fantazio is making anything up.

Baguley's effort and work rate would be the sort of thing that JH should aspire to and is desperately needed if JH is to have a career. That becomes "replacement" with a bit of bravado or someone close wanting to talk up his mate, etc.

At this point, what is a replacement for Baguley? The depth small forward? It doesn't make a whole lot of sense.

Yep, what he said. Wording has never been a strong point of mine

I reckon he is slow burn that will suddenly pop. We had Merret on our list for how long? So I think we can give him 3 years in the system.
We’ve gotta stop keeping rubbish players for 5+ years. If they are no good or not showing significant improvement after 3 years, move them on. Seem to be moving towards a more business like approach to list management in recent years rather than the hopeful, loyal, optimistic crap we’d served up for so long.
