Nope. Why handball to a stationary player a foot away?????
Why indeed. I doubt very much that he would have done that in the VFL. He should have taken the responsibility to get the ball out himself but lacks the belief to do it. Same with not standing in the hole in front of Cox when he lead out from the goal square. You could see him looking around, but didn't know exactly what to do. That is little league stuff.
He needs another game or two in the side to get his confidence up and feel like he belongs, and to see if he belongs. He was better in his first year than now, which can only be confidence because he looks so comfortable at VFL. If it is footy nous he lacks, then that will show out. No real harm, early in the season.

Unfortunately he is playing to not stuff up. It’s a fact for role players. Too scared to do something wrong rather then taking the game on!

He needs to play with flare

He buggered up almost every time he got it cause he was overthinking it. Worst one was the marking contest when he went the body instead of punching and gave Phillips the easy mark and goal


Still 50/50 whether I want him to have a few games. From what I’ve seen he won’t make it

First game in 18 months at this level and it happens to be against a Pies side who ran rampant. Despite this it seems that the Big Footy experts have put a line through him already. Happy to give Markov time to settle into a role before making a call on his chances of making it.

For the 50th time this week I've seen Da Goo On Face take that 'OK' mark over Markov.... and being a one eyed Tige, have come to the conclusion there were 3 blatant free kicks not paid to Oleg..... in the back, head high and unrealistic attempt. :D:D:D.

Interesting article on the AFL app on how Geelong used Kolodjashnij to lock down De Goey.
We seem to allow him to run rampant.
He is killing us, nine goals in two matches.
