What the fu**.

If that's accurate I'll be tempted to dig up my posts from 2014 where I said he was always best suited to playing on ball/around the stoppages :p

James Magner Tom couch and Jack grimes (post captain version) had no trouble getting it at VFL level. Isn't worth a pinch of when your not AFL standard.

I'd rather 10 Petracca touches than 30 from JKH
JKH is a neat user of the footy I reckon. A bit like Stretch in that he's not super damaging but he rarely turns it over. I think his biggest issue thus far in his career has been an inability to find enough of the footy -- something that was no trouble for the other blokes you mentioned, they had other issues -- so this is a positive development (provided he can keep it up).

Not a valid comparison. JKH has always used the ball well at AFL level, he's just had trouble finding it when played out of position. If he gets 30 touches in an AFL game we've probably done alrighty as a team

Come on. Has poor awareness and he is only neat because he takes a safe option. Has no penatration or vision with his kicks. The only reason that's OK for Jetta is because he is a gun one on one defender. JkH is not.

Another one paced non goal kicking inside midfielder is the last thing we need. Viv Michie was a neat user of the pill and found it a lot better than JKH yet look where he is.

It's simple! Turn him into a gun one on one defender!

Interesting to see them both play together on the weekend - neither was terrible, but ANB has had some good continuity to build something above where JKH is right now.

If you had told me a year ago that ANB and JKH would be in our midfield Round 17 2017, I'd have laughed at you, then cried a little bit because Fisted Forever.

Dug it up for you mate. Although technically you said he'd never play another "gans" so you're all clear :thumbsu:
Can't get out of that one can I lol although to be fair to me who would have thought we would lose Viney Jones Tyson Watts Brayshaw and Salem at the same time
