Ripper game yesterday, you can see the confidence growing weekly, he's only going to get better with more games and a better strength & fitness base, on top of his football smarts is his never give up attitude which is inspiring ...
I just see him as being more toned now, and he has lost his "puppy fat" which now allows him to move better and get to more contests..........his best position imo is in the middle doing an Ed Curnow job on an opposition mid and supporting Paddy Cripps..........looks like he has the hunger for it now and hopefully keeps improving.I called him a battler at the start of the year. He's become a terrific player, an absolute natural footballer who is only going to keep improving as he gets fitter and stronger.
He could actually turn out to become a genuine gun now that the self-belief is there. Jack has obviously worked extremely hard and he should be incredibly proud of himself.
I’ll give it away. I cried at his dads last game. I cried at Jacks first. My (second) favourite player. Bleeds blue. Over my dead body he leaves.Has anyone heard that he wants out of Carlton to another club, because another Carlton supporter I know keeps saying that he does?!?! I could not see our club letting a Silvagni(Carlton royalty) play elsewhere myself..........just wondering if he was pi**ed off with not being played by Bolton earlier in the year, or the pressure of having his old man at the club.........hope not!!! I think that he has improved heaps lately and perhaps it is due to his body shape improving, in that he looks a lot more athletic now or maybe he is just working a bit harder.........whatever it is, just make sure that he stays and stays happy blues!!!
It was certainly deliberate but it was incredibly high risk to attempt with lots of things that could have meant it went 1m (or more) either side of Kreuzer.Not sure about luck; looked plenty deliberate and he proved his accuracy kicking off the outside of the boot again a bit later with a nice goal.
Also the pass to Kreuzer stood out plenty from where I was sitting and was raved about for a while.
I just happened to watch a few minutes of 1970 grand final on youtube last week.Jacks not SOS and he's not Serg, but I'll be damned if I don't see glimpses of the best of both of them.
And he will only get fitter, stronger and wiser. He has a great knack of doing the unexpected, call it X factor, whatever.
going to be great entertainment for years to come in the navy blue.
