    It was certainly intentional. Such a slight and fine little deflection - and he had the soccer ready to go.

    *watch Coniglio's goal* "Coniglioooo.."

    *watch Betts' goal* "Eddie. It does not get any better than that."

    I think he's got the most tackles outside midfielders and ruckmen in the league.

    Unreal how far the kid has come. Played against him for a couple of years in our school comp while he was at chairo. Pretty overweight, not that confident but when he got it shit happened. He sneaks up on you as well like he's trying to run silently, which took me massively by surprise because he was so ****in solid. Really happy for him he was extremely shy, now look at the great man fist pumping 50,000 supporters on the MCG.

    He'd probably even apologize for standing on someone's foot.

    Crazy, I know...

    Yeah there were a few even here early in the year who thought that he would struggle to follow up last year's performances .... poor demented fools. He has done that and more, and as the FreshPrinceOfPyongYang said above - if this is his ceiling, and he sticks at that level like a dread-locked helium balloon of joy, menace, and fair play, then that ain't such a bad level to be stuck at ...
    Personally, can't see any reason he can't keep raising the ceiling (and the roof!).

    which over half the posters on here do despite him asking for us to stick with Walla. But I think you just mean it was a pet name from such a campaigner

    Tippa I can understand, it's a pretty obvious nickname for what would otherwise be an alphabet and a half to try and pronounce. AMT is longer to say but shorter to type. MTW is the most unnatural one, and reeks of desperation to be different by whichever bloody commentator always uses it.

    The bloated corpse of Sandy Roberts.

    Although it certainly less syllables than Anthony William Watson McDonald-Tipungwuti

    Yes! I skip the intro to all EFC clips because of his irritating and contrived 'A. M. T. AS GOOD AS YOU'LL SEE'

    It's just a little bit less crap when you realise he used to say about someone else 30 years ago (I forget who).
