very good players. was one of those types that are meh for the first 7-8 years with people wondering why he was even on a list, before exploding around 2015 i think it was. just goes to show some players mature later and can really improve quickly once they hit a certain point.

We can thank our partnership with VU.
He basically spent an entire pre-season re-learning how to run (with a completely different, less-crap technique) which meant his hamstrings would stop tearing.

just goes to show how much sports science can actually do for an athlete. im sure theres plenty people who would argue 'i know my body best, i know the best way for my body to naturally run' bla bla bla

Apparently he is sacrificing most if not all of the final year of his contract too to help out the Dogs.

Absolute class act from a wonderful club man.
Hope Carlton can Snap him up as an assistant.
Email them so they don't sleep on it.
Seriously
