    Thought he was good tonight. Second leading possession getter behind Pendlebury and seemed to be one of the ones caring out there. Thanks Sinkers!

    Reading the match day comments in the first half, sounded like he was having a shocker!

    Dunno if he's toast worthy, on balance too many crosses on the negative side of the ledger IMO.

    Maybe if they weren't posting and missing the game they'd see what was going on out there.

    Can't think of anything negative he did. Got back to cover team mates who shouldve been Andrew Walker on half time isn't negative if that's the play you're thinking of.

    On balance he's been good all year. Generally made good decisions tonight and used it okay.

    I've come around to him. I absolutely hated him when he first went back to defense a few years ago and then this season he's surprised me a lot. I'm always waiting for him to make a mistake but he never does.

    I'm not a TG fan but he's twice the poster you are, he actually discusses Footy while you come onto the forum once every few days to attack a poster then piss off. What a great addition you are

    I didn't see any of the game, but could his speed be used further up the ground or will he just get lost?

    That's because he was. He was one of our worst users of the ball early in the game. Seriously poor and turning it over. He had a great second half though and really broke the lines, created space, and found some targets. One great goal saving smother too. But that first half.........(shudders).

    I was at the game and thought his disposal in the first half was awful, but you can't knock his endeavor.

    He'd get lost. He needs the game in front of him. His strength is gathering from behind as a receiver and streaming forward. I don't think he has the spatial awareness or footy Smartskin to do that forward of the ball.

    Is this the same thatsgold????He was a bit of a failure as a fwd but that was prob due to injuries leading to pressure when on the park trying to prove himself.Ive always thought he had the right attributes,just needed good run.Kudo's to you to see the light

    I can not think of one Clanger he had not one. Everytime be used the ball he passed to a team mate.

    At least he has a bit of dare and wants to take the game on. I was at the game tonight and he created a lot of run, yes stuffed up a couple kicks but that happens. Again, at least he was taking it on.

    One of his best games.

    Ben was very good. Playing Tay's role and doing well. Not as well as Tay, but a pretty decent back up!

    No, more like the number of turnovers in the first half which luckily Carlton didn't punish us with on account of them being so crap. Sinclair's second half was better but he really needs to clean up the turnovers before I'd give him the thumbs up.

    Can you highlight any examples of his turnovers? I can't think of any.
