I am very disappointed with Jmac this year. And I valued & appreciated him in the team greatly last year when the team was losing he was doing a lot of things right. But he's a shadow of what he was last year. Hopefully he picks up.Keep looking for good signs, mountford was impressive, McDonald lifts his output every month, browns a gun and Tarrant is elite. Enjoyed Wagner, tried hard.
McMillan has gone backwards more rapidly than the rate of Goldsteins decline. Basically a lot of our senior core is not good enough. Higgins has regressed to his bulldogs form, but that's mainly attributed to the fact that he's our only midfield weapon and teams just play tight.
Our ladder position is a true representation of where we are at. And deserve to be.
thompson is gone. Goes to ground. Doesnt watch the ball. Just scrags. Is horrific and has been for 18m.I kept watching Lynch beat Thompson time and again and thought how much I would have loved to have seen Nielson have a go instead. If he lights it up in the VFL tomorrow - and I believe he will - he needs to be selected for next week. I'm not saying we drop Thommo - has been good this year for the most part - I'm saying Nielson would have done a better job on Lynch.
The reason I say that is because Nielson is almost the same size (maybe 1cm shorter), is quicker, and is a better 1-on-1 negating defender that Scotty is.
