I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again, he is an absolute rock. He doesn’t seem to get beaten much at all, is as hard as a cats head, always seems to get back to save the day on the last line, and is very reliable by foot. He has developed into a gun for his position - a real asset.

Looking forward to him lining up on Greene this week.
Greene was a non factor. 9 touches and 0 goals. Well played, Maynard.

I love the fact he told the world and delivered. I also liked Buckley's comment in the presser. Think it may have gone differently had Green kicked ad few but he didn't because Maynard delivered. Green did look subdued after the weeks publicity though.

The old denis pagan maxim.
A player gets lots of press about how good they are, the next week they not so good.

Imagine if our plan is to run Maynard and de goey through the middle for half the game while Pendles and Sidey rest forward?
That sounds appealing as Pendles and Sidey both have good forward craft but I reckon they will want to stick to the same structures as much as possible. I was just thinking last night that so much of our gameplan requires players to be where they should be / are expected to be, as we often win the ball and seemingly boot it to a specific set play and just hope that the intended positional player gets to it. Which is how we're able to move the ball so fast a lot of the time because it doesn't require the momentum-killing sit back, look and think. A lot of the time it works, although obviously sometimes it doesn't. I wonder whether messing around with our two prime movers (Sidey and Pendles) may tip the scales a bit...

Love to see Buckley roll the dice aka back in 2010 when the used Maxwell to Tag. and get Maynard to play on Martin. he matches him for power. and as a defender. but not in the middle. but i'd rather Martin get a kick in the midfield then kicking in the F50
