stats are misleading. he is better than 2020 but a fair way off 2018 or 2019.
I honestly believe the big difference is the midfield is letting him down. Time and time again our mids fumble and it is intercepted by the opposition mids. We have a slow ageing midfield that does not hit the ball at pace or handle it cleanly. Look at the weekend. 16 HO's to advantage which is massive but we kept coughing it up. He also lead contested positions, his repeat efforts where excellent and he kicked a goal.
People are judging him because they are p!ssed off that he is on good coin on 7 years. He cops more heat than DeGoey FFS who somehow is on 750k(reported) despite finishing outside the top 10 in the copeland every single year bar 1! And that contract was signed at the end of last year at the same time we moved out 3 senior players due to Cap space. What the hell is going on down their!!
