Yeah heard clarko say that in the presser, with the players of experience they had, he had no right to mention that.The whole fox footy coverage jammed down our throats how the hawks were a bunch of kids today. Someone please find out the age and games player averages. Horrible coverage.
I have no doubt in my mind he is actually the smartest football playing mind in the league.I don't follow these things very closely but is Caleb Daniel being mentioned as a possible AA when it comes to the naming of the team?
Watching his surveil his surroundings in an instant as he sums up the best option is just a sight to behold.
you are in desperate need of some full stops and commas!!Gardner is a good player by the way he defiantly started badly but I put it down to this round 1 he was playing a position he hadn't played at AFL level before and had only played 2 games before that point as a forward and he got completely smashed in a team smashing that we all didn't expect to happen he wasn't the only poor performer but he was very singled out so it would of stayed on his mind come lockdown he was probably low on confidence due to it then with round 2 and the same unexpected smashing happening and him being poor again it would of f’ed his confidence completely, reckon his confidence was still a bit shot when he played against Brisbane but their was brief little signs. Then we won a game and it's seemed to start to turn around for him he looks like he's gained a sh*t ton of confidence the last 3-4 weeks and his disposal and efforts are way better, he fights for every contest even when he seems out of it and does little things that seem to go unnoticed like backing Keath in a duel or getting touches around the ground ball that really help us transition the ball back out if defence.
The way we press our defenders are going to get out sometimes. It's a matter of getting the balance right between too attacking and player conscious. Our defenders don't really have direct opponents, who ever is in the area has to go. Can look really bad when Daniels gets caught out with a mismatch, but we are prepared to roll the dice!It looked as if Gunston was his direct opponent.
I guess with our attacking style, we have to wear opposition forwards kicking a bag
In all honesty early doors I thought he was a spud. He is showing some signs that there is something there to work with. Needs more experience to have the confidence to intercept regularly and not just go the defensive fist.Hi Mate !
i am probably a little harsh , especially after a good win. But he just dosnt pass my eye test.
When I’m proven wrong , I expect you all to come after me.
want desperately to be wrong , we need a tall athletic defender.
