On the back of my success with the Luke Parker hype thread, I bring you my next Nostradamus moment:


This kid is a gun. Was he good in the intraclub? Yes. Wasn't TDL better? Yes, and?
Did I confuse him for Hewett more than once? None of your business.

Avoid embarrassment and get on board this unstoppable steam-wagon now.
OP checks out.

Well done to the Pelican, he is already a cult hero for me just on his name. It's crazy how well you guys go with Rookies and it looks like you have another gem here
Cheers, mate! Yes, it really is crazy about our rookies! Must be an excellent program with really good support staff. I know of no other team that even comes close to our output from rookies.

Have you seen the tribute website someone has set up for him? Check out "It's Lewis Melican, not Lewis Melican't" on facebook.

Against St Kilda he was starting to really take the opposition players on and run with the ball... His confidence is growing
To be fair he did that a bit in his first game against the Saints ten weeks ago. He's been a pretty confident player from debut. Went from limbo at the club last year to being our best first year player, so he's resilient too

With apologies etc......

Who can take out Roughead, Taylor Walker too
Cover Joey Daniher and stick to Lynch like glue
The Melican, oh the Melican can
The Melican can 'cause he plays the game with heart and still he looks so good

Who can take Nick Riewoldt, cousin Jack as well
Give it to Ben Brown and make a Demon forward smell
The Melican, the Melican can
The Melican can 'cause he plays the game with heart and still he looks so good

Oh, who can take tomorrow, Reg is almost done
Organise the defence and cover for Aliir’s run
The Melican, oh the Melican can
The Melican can 'cause he plays the game with heart and still he looks so good

“It’s important to know that he worked bloody hard in the pre-season this year,” Jack added.

“He made the decision to come back up to Sydney three or four weeks earlier than what was required. He continually asked me to go for a kick or a run with him.

“He knew he had to work on his fitness, that was one of things he was told to improve on, and went out of his way to seek out people who were around.

“I would’ve been running with him three times per week and doing kicking sessions almost every day — so he worked as hard as anyone and it’s paying off now.”

Melican identified a need to improve his kicking skills in the off-season and sought out Rhyce Shaw to help. He’s also become a louder presence on the ground — something which he needed to further develop.




Hmm getting BJ and Shaw to help with your kicking o_O

Weeeellll, he probably singled them out, said if I study what they actually do and then not do that I might be on a winner here.

Either that or he is insane.

I love this kid.

A gun already.
