Well I must say I'm surprised and leave it like that.

I think Kiddy was going just ok last week. Obviously we're going to supercharge CEY to impact the contests rather than looking like he will. He does at least seem to get into the right positions.

I like it. Coleman's pressure has been great. But I think we've still got enough firepower on the ground to exploit the weaknesses in their backline and will lock the ball up forward. If the cats get on top, we'll need more grunt in the middle. CEY isn't elite but he creates space and absorbs body work.

Oh Jeez the butterflies. Thats Geelong game this year reminded me alot of the Carlton game last year. had a good lead, was innacurate and they had one good quarter and we get slammed. apply scoreboard pressure ... make the cats fumble and take risks .... got em.

Think we’ll split CEY between up forward and mid like we do with Berry. Gives us another forward option to stop Stewart, Blicavs and the other bloke from peeling off so much. They have four pretty decent intercept marking defenders so I guess it makes sense, still surprising though.

This line up looks very potent. Class on every line and amazing scoring potential. Focus has been on Charlie, but I am expecting Hipwood cut loose.
Really like the quality of our Emergencies for the future as well. Can't see Hinge being delisted. Kiddy has a big future for us and he will be back as a crowd favorite.

I was at the game at the SCG when the Cats midfield took us apart in the third quarter. Possibly our worst quarter for the year. We can't afford a repeat of that. We have to consistently win the ball. Given that experience, the CEY change makes sense. Horses for courses, we have more options if their midfield really gets going. As much as I love the way Coleman plays, he will get other chances, if not this year, then next.

This will not end well unfortunately, Coleman’s pressure was elite and we’re just taking away mid time from berry. Cey is big but lacks any sort of class
Interesting, but i disagree. I thought Colemans game against Richmond was good but not great. I believe CEY has shown potential this year but also been a passenger. This is his chance to play in the big dance if he does enough. I dont think a switch of the 22nd player is going to be the difference between winning and not ending well.

There is no doubt what so ever Kiddy has great potential and will be a good player in the future. I did feel his output has been pretty minimal for a couple of weeks. I think it’s the right move but CEY better be angry and aggressive. If he goes to far and gets a week so be it.

He looks angry and aggressive.

I'd just like to see him finish off his work by doing something when he gets into the A1 positions where he invariably seems to find himself.

I don't think kiddys been outstanding. But has definitely showed some super promising signs. Was thinking early CEY might come in. But jeez gotta feel for kiddy.
