If he's showing promise there's no sense in dropping him. We've always kept Rose as a forward, but 38 touches means we've probably shifted him to a midfield role
Yes I do.You know him?
The question is... is it a put-on-the-apron-and-cook-up-a-feast type hunger or quick-dash-down-to-maccas type hunger?
I’ll be cheering him on anyway as I believe he has the skill set to be a star.
Pretty sure he was best 22 last night.Good on him for having a real crack. We saw the best and the worst of Rose all at once last night, but the most pleasing thing was that he kept trying and bounced back from each mistake. After he made that kick inwards I was thinking, oh geez, he’ll be mentally wobbly now. Credit to him!
Still miles off best 22 and is first one out for me when the injured quartet on the sidelines return.
He is capable of the top level
Great post Wolfy. I dined on a bit of humble pie last night.I have canned him from pillar to post for his past performances when he has come into the side but will now offer apologies after his performance yesterday. He worked his arse off found a bit of the ball and when given the opportunity half way through the 3rd to go as a mid he was quite good at stoppages. Got his hand to the ball first on more than a couple of occasions at stoppages to give it out. Has quite a durable looking physique for a midfielder and on yesterday I hope they persevere with him there for a few weeks to see if he can go to where Hewitt has gone. Hewitt s rise has been over a couple of years so you never know. Will be more than happy to get more Egg on my face after my past appraisals of him. Good Luck to him.
