Another tackle from Bailey that should've been rewarded. BTW Crowden is an absolute brute and Bailey matched him.

Can’t believe that wasn’t paid HTB.

Adjudication on this has gone way too far the other way from the way too far they went the other way previously.

Tackling is a great part of the game.

Reward it.

Oh yeah. Bailey. Love watching him play. Exactly what we need. Great signing.
Also, seems to be working real well on the area there were knocks on him for - physicality (see GR tackle gifs), contested marking ( he’s clunked a few) and his kicking is becoming solid.

Has shown the full range of skills - run, overhead marking, tackling, foot skills, but most of all, accurate kicking for goal from within 40.

As absolute integral part of the future.
Just needs to nail the goals on the run and he will excite the masses if they aren't already excited.

Yes but in those cases he has passed the ball off - ie played the team game.

That's a good trait to have.

Once he gets the confidence to nail those shots rather than pass it off he will do that.

I’ll be interested to see whether he gets more midfield time next year. He has some good forward craft, but doesn’t have the tank of Polec or Dumont to play long stints on the wing. He really offers something different for our midfield. Needs additional weight and needs to keep building that tank.
