I love Wagner. His name has the German pronunciation that makes you think of "precision", "efficiency", "ghostbusters" and "luxury vehicles"

He's had a pretty decent start all things considered and I look forward to browsing this and the Nathan Jones Spudwatch thread when Wagner is holding up the Norm Smith in 2020.

I'm a fan of Wagner's too. I thought he was a spud in the NAB series but he's impressed me since the proper stuff started. Him and Jetta are the only two defenders in our starting lineup that actually know how to defend. Hopefully they bring Grimes in this week as well, we are going to need some options against their mosquito fleet. Nev might do okay on Poppy, got no idea who plays on Cyril... Maybe Hunt but I think Cyril would be too strong.

Grimes could be an option for Cyril?

Generic, not-quite-capable footballer #148 for the Melbourne Football Club. Destined to play a handful of barely memorable games before playing out his days in the foggy haze of Casey Fields. Follows in the footsteps of past luminaries, Simon Buckley, Mitch Clisby, Shane Valenti, and Michael 'Pickles' Evans.

We will remember them.

Wagner just proves my theory that we should never draft or trade for anybody from Queensland.

There have been 12 players to play for us either drafted from Queensland or traded in from Brisbane/Suns.

These 12 include:
-Josh Wagner
-Jake Spencer
-Trevor Spencer (the 90's edition of spud Spencer)
-Rohan Bail
-Brad Miller
-Joel Macdonald
-Mitch Campaigner Clark
-Ricky Petterd

In fact the only good player we've had from Queensland is Bizzell. Take note MFC, never again!

Miler 50/50 wasn't great but looking back wasn't a complete spud either

Also leave Petterd alone!

Lol.
Petterd was bloody talanted, but injury prone
Miller was a 150 game player
Wagner is ok, will be a solid 100+ game player

Can't find it though

Meh, he is most likely a better option than whatever we would take with our 3rd pick.

He finished highly in the B and F given how many games played and his actual output. Coaches clearly see big things for him.

I still don't see it. We actually played quite well when he was out of the team. Can't see him getting a game now we have Hibberd
