Plough says hi.Just in response to Scottroo on Curtis Taylor's thread I was gonna say almost exactly the same thing. I can't remember when our list was like this except for during the mid - late 80s when thinking about those u19 sides (who went on to be quite good.)
I can't remember our list being this good in a long time. Not since the 90s side.
Curtis Taylor was pretty good in r1 and Bailey Scott was pretty good in r1 last year and both have some development to come.
It's like we got Wells, and then another three or four as good players and a bunch more who are close. Since Jy. Maybe not quite as jaw droppingly talented as Wells but all pretty damn close and ... honestly ... they seem harder, tougher players.
I haven't felt this way about our list since the 90s. Sure we've been close but these guys are genuinely exciting. The next three years could be very good.
This time around, though, we’re, hopefully, not talking about just four guys. Thomas, Jy, LDU, Bailey, Zurhaar, Larkey, Taylor and Walker all have potential X factor. Then there’s Kyron, Perez and Comden to hope for.Two of those guys are genuinely good midfielders. One has some
limitations the other is elite.
One is okay (Greenwood), was better when he was still with us. He's serviceable...
Everyone we've drafted since we picked Jy Simpkin gives us a better group than those four, and if we get three quarters of those players who can play midfield at a similar ratio then that's two elite players, two who could get 10 Brownlow votes, like Jack last year, so pretty damn good on their day and another two serviceable ie Greenwood level players plus maybe one more who could be in any of those categories.
Still a much better return IMO. Who knows even Basti could have been more with a better development set up.
Don't forget mahoney, i reckon he has more to show as he matures
Yep, I’m more cool on him than most on here.What role is he playing against the Giants? 1 kick and 1 handball is a touch disappointing for a half of footy.

The 4 very gettable misses by Hall, Jack and BBB x 2 could have had a draining effect on the team. Instead, Taylor, Bailey, Thomas x 2 and Zurhaar x 3 carried the day for us.Our experienced players missing sitter after sitter than TT nails that from the pocket - turned the tide in that moment
How many times have our blokes sprayed that shot on the run in the last qtr? I can just see some muppet in days of yore, running in a slamming into the post.Our experienced players missing sitter after sitter than TT nails that from the pocket - turned the tide in that moment
