James Aish can play football. We have all seen it, and there is no denying it... the kid can play. Just go back and watch him play for Brisbane, when he had a larger role, confidence and more responsibility.

Its all about confidence and self-belief with Aish. I think he can doubt himself, but as we’ve seen in the past, when he isn’t doubting himself, he is a good footballer.

I would love to see a fully confident Aish on a wing. He is playing his role well right now, but i think there is more to him. There is more he can offer.

Well Aish done some good jobs.

People here just have made there Mind Up and Saying he is not even Local Footy Good:rolleyes:
Dave, I think you take it to heart too much sometimes.
After a loss there will always be a player that will cop some extra criticism. Sometimes it is Aish, Phillips, Thomas even Sidebottom who I like.

You need to sit back and really think about it and be able to say, 'yeah, it wasn't his best' and move on.

Or if you disagree then disagree on some facts of your own on what you saw him do that was good. For example there was a moment in the game that Moore was away from Hogan and Aish went to cover. In fact I thought Moore stood too far away from Hogan on Saturday a few times, giving him too much space. But in saying that, I am not saying Moore is a bad player but that he too like many others had an off day.

I don't mind Aish as he does do some good things and have said I would like to see him on a wing.

I noticed that too early in the Game Moore was giving Hogan too much space but later in the Game he seemed to do it better.

I heard people bag Aish for that but I was thinking that is not Aish's Man. Where is Moore

That is the way you should think about, well done and I agree, much better after that. I was really surprised as normally he plays much tighter.

Anyway, don't let it get to you.

That incident was irrelevant as to Moore’s position because it was Aish who turned the ball over resulting in the quick re-entry.
Aish simply trying to fix his mistake. He failed.

Which occasion? Moore's positioning was poor against Hogan more than once in that first quarter.

Must watch again.

Never said it wasn’t.
Dave pointed to the time Aish competed against Hogan.
Clearly the incident I referred to.
Maybe you need to watch the game again. I certainly won’t.
In this incident Aish had the ball, Moore, as we do as a team, went forward of his opponent to create an option.
Aish then kicked it to a three on one. Fair to say the three weren’t wearing black and white stripes.
Not only did he kick it to a three on one, he kicked it over the head of the one.
So a simple turnover by a player with abysmal foot skills and decision making suddenly becomes Moore’s issue?
Ah ha.......

Was this in the first quarter?
I do like watching again as I see more of what I missed. (After the pain has lessened).

I would like to see Aish up the field a bit more like early 2018, reality says he's a long way back for a spot there currently though

Doing enough down back to keep him there though, a nice pairing forming with Greenwood

If Aish could bust through packs and gut run time and time again like Crisp then I will start to excuse his Butchery.
Exactly.
He appears to be able to do that on occasion, especially when our top tier are in the game and the pressure is off him.
What we need from him is to be able to step up when the top tier is blanketed, or out of the team.
So far he hasn’t shown that ability.
