To each their own.What? Hewett is doing great but isn't close to Parker's level. And that's the only midfielder I can even conceive of putting in the same ball park.
Parker has more influence in every statistical category. Hewett has one fewer clanger per match, and is generally tidier with his possessions, but Parker still has more total effective disposals because he gets more of the ball. They are equal on tackles but Parker has more marks, more goals, more score involvements, more goals assists, more contested and more uncontested possessions. And he sets the standard for aggression and attack on the ball and is a leader. Hewetts been amazing. Genuinely excellent, love the guy. But he isn't within cooeee at this stage.

The bolded are the only stats you listed that are relevant to me, because I maintain that Parker should be a forward.
As I said a few weeks ago, I would take 20-25 of Hewett's possessions any day of the week over 25-30 of Parker's.
But I'd rather not get into this cyclic back and forth about Parker again, especially in the Aliir thread.
