I'm back to my 2017 levels of hating Melksham.

2018 seems like a blip on the radar, really.

He never just knocks the ball out either, just sits on the footy and always gets pinged and then has that dumb look on his face

Makes more sense. Baker has just vanished according to the club.

Jones, Weideman, Sparrow, Chandler the emergencies.
so sparrow or chandler get f’ed over again as being sub and not getting minutes. surely aren't using Jones every week

I’m hoping Harmes finds his form and earns a long term spot back in the 22. No idea what happened last year but he was the only guy worth watching in 2019.
My favourite thing from 2019, and pickings were very slim, was Petracca in the second half of the year putting in consistent improvement. The media surprise at his “break out” in 2020 was the usual uninformed and hysterical media. It was clearly coming

Every statistical measure showed that he was one of the best forwards in the league in 2019 in spite of how diabolical we were that year.

Heeney and Melican are big outs for Sydney.

For some reason I thought Petty was around 25 to 27 years old and I have no idea why I thought that though.

I would have preferred Sparrow in instead of Harmes though.

Not sold on Harmes coming straight back in, Chandler or Sparrow would've been better imo. Petty in is fair enough, give him a few weeks with Lever and May.
