Did a lot of good things today and should have nailed 3 goals. Needs to sort out his yips. One of our better players
I love Brody but I have seen some worrying signs in recent weeks. His kicking for goal is definitely off the boil as is his decision making. He keeps putting pressure on himself by not getting back quickly on the mark before he decides to hand pass or kick. At one stage today all he had to do was kick long to the hot spot and he dithered and fiddled before being called to play on and promptly kicked it on the full. His greatest strength has been keeping it simple and playing to his strengths. Take a deep breath, Brody.

Would take someone creating the opportunities over someone pedestrian doing **** all like WHE or Thomas.

Burnt us today but he’s still comfortably best 22. Always creates a contest.
That was WHE's best game for the year. Building nicely after knee surgery just before the season started. Thomas is just paddling but like Mihocek if he nails the kicks on goals that he hasnt been nailing then hes done his job.

WHE had his best game in 2019 yesterday so that's a bit harsh. I agree that Thomas is skating on thin ice.

As for Checkers, we can't isolate his bloopers and judge his entire contribution on those. I'd have him picked in our best 22 as he will always provide a contest in the forward line and is outstanding at ground level for a guy of his size. He needs to get his sh*t together with his finish tho, and that's mostly between the ears.

His marking? I’m staggered that even entered someone’s mind given what’s been going on from the foot end of Brody’s body.
The use by foot is a disease that many in the Black & White currently deal with.

His marking though, urgh, gets his hands to oh-so-many balls in the air and drops them consistently. Its infuriating.

Really. Ranked 27th league wide for marks per game average, highest of any Collingwood player, had 9 yesterday, = 3rd highest for the game.

Mihocek did drop one mark that he absolutely should have taken late in the last quarter yesterday and I can understand the perception that he drops to many but I kind of feel that it has been more a case of a smallish key forward nearly hanging on to some difficult marking opportunities than being a poor mark.

I call them almost games and once again what could have been a match winning performance turned into a game of missed opportunity.

Mihocek is still winning plenty of ball and generating opportunities he just needs to move past the yips in front of goal and for his luck to turn on the marking attempts.

He's almost there. Keep the faith.

Got plenty of it against Freo but made a lot of uncustomary errors with disposal and decision making. Not one of his better games but far from our worst out there.
