Agree to some extent but lots of positive signs to get excited about. Even started in the square on a couple of occasions so they were definitely putting him through his paces.
Was a decent debut. Kicking and turnovers were an issue though. Hopefully that was just debut nerves.Seemed a bit one paced too.

So is Pendlebury, Sidebottom, Tom Mitchell, Josh Kennedy, Selwood among others- To me thats a non issue

We need him to find the pill and look good in congestion, he did both of those. Turnovers can be ironed out. I was trawling youtube this morn to find Pendleburys debut. Wanted to see a comparison to composure. As Fin looks extremely comfortable.

Only an issue because our midfield is already completely one paced.

Wot rules? Playing boofhead songs by the likes of Angry Anderson? Are they meant to be...stimulating?
well the club theme songs aren't so cool.... there's a certain tradition to be maintained here. Songs by Rose Tattoo, Hunters, Paul Kelly etc provide the soundtrack.... not some guy talking about how great he is or what he's going to do to his girlfriend or all the other crap topics that appear in rap songs. If you want to make a clip of basketball, by all means use the usa soundtrack.

Omg I can't believe you are disrespecting Angry Andersen. His Batmobile performance of bound for glory is literally the musical soul of our football club. That and "everybody wants to work, no no not me" by the uncanny X-Men.

Hmmmm, Angry not so much, but Rose Tattoo were a great live band which also gave us Peter Wells, one of the best Australian slide guitarists of all time.

He’ll eventually be taking over from Pendlebury and Sidebottom, so pace, while it would’ve been nice, is not mandatory.
In addition to that, Reef has pace to burn, which should become evident when his tank improves, and Poulter seems to have some wheels on him too, while Nick Daicos has looked pretty quick in the NAB league this year. From a future midfield make up perspective, I think we’re actually looking pretty good for speed. That doesn’t help us short term unfortunately.

The word is that Nick is noticeably quicker than Josh.

I just really want to get the building blocks in place first, so that Nick can come in as Alan Didak rather than having to be Nathan Buckley (the player).
