Hard to beat that list but we need to sneak Adams in too.
He's our hard head inside the belly of the beast.

Hard not to make this a best 22 really.
Poor choice of total.

Jesus Christ. Not content with jinxing the few that we've learnt to live without, you're now having a crack at the 10 best players on our list. What have you done?

The ten idea was to get the degree of difficulty higher.

Makes for a bit of thinking.

I'd probably have them top 5 for talent, but I left out Moore and Elliott becasue they haven't been on the park regularly enough.

Only listed players I have seen live. I'm pretty fricken old, but not that old. Were you lucky enough (or old enough) to see any of the older guys on my list play. They were amasing. It was a toss up between Carmen and Greening as number 1.
Carman always gets into my best ever top 5, but Daicos gets the nod over both Greening and Carman, purely on longevity and consistency.

Actually I'll finish the job

1. Brodie Grundy
2. Scott Pendlebury
3. Adam Treloar
4. Steele Sidebottom
5. Taylor Adams
6. Jordan De Goey
7. Darcy Moore
8. Tom Langdon
9. Brayden Maynard
10. Jaidyn Stephenson

Top few based on longevity whilst the bottom group is based more on recent form, since we don't have many who have been stars for several years.
Jack Crisp, very stiff. Howe also missing from a lot of these.

1. Grundy
2. Pendles
3. Sidebottom
4. DeGoey
5. Treloar
6. Crisp
7. Howe
8. Adams
9. Phillips
10. Stephenson

Moore hasn't done it for long enough and Beams looked shot when he did play for us. Maynard could be if he continues his current for through the rest of the year. Sier should be pushing this list this time next year and a fit Langdon, Elliot and WHE would be just outside it.

10. Langdon

I don’t think Stevo is quite there yet, and Beams is down the list because of 2019 form. A few seriously stiff to miss out, we have a great list.

I couldn't resist theming this, in my area of interest. Ten of our best (not our ten best) who also have terrible hair and/or hair dos (in no particular order):
  • Stephenson (does he still cut it himself? did last season)
  • De Goey
  • Moore
  • Moore again (because he deserves it)
  • Maynard
  • Aish (for previous sins)
  • Beams
  • Langdon (enough already with the stringy lanky locks)
  • Mayne (probably cant help it)
  • Phillips (because I'm bored with his Hollywood look)
Special mention to Sier, who debuted an especially ugly do on Monday, but won back respect for the black nail polish.

Sticking to the intended theme (in rough order):

Pendlebury
Grundy
De Goey
Moore
Sidebottom
Treloar
Adams
Mayne
Crisp
Stephenson

Others:

Beams - hasn't done enough to date on his return home
Maynard - close, but not yet
Hoskin-Elliott - the delayed start to the season and a slow return to form sees him miss
Langdon - his best is very good, but we've covered him okay
Elliott - only injuries see him miss
Phillips - if only he nailed more of those shots on goal
Roughead - on the fringe, certainly doing well as a tall defender this year, just hasn't done it long enough
Cox - very important to our structure and on his day a match winner, but others are ahead in terms of talent/consistency
Mihocek - like Cox an important cog, but Reid could play a similar role
Greenwood - see Greenwood except as a small defender
Howe - fading in comparison to a couple of years back, but gradually building form this year
Dunn - injured, will he get back?

Love it love it.
The best and so funny is the:

“Moore again (because he deserves it)”

Brilliant.

Just be careful you don’t stray on the sacred ground, polished nails bear....

Greening had an unlimited ceiling but Carman was never going to be long term great because he was such a flog.

Saw every single game Peter played and no one in my time compares, as a mid in the early days he was mesmerizing and as a small forward later he was simply astonishing - could do it all and often did.

Don't want to derail the thread. I always have Greening #1 and I think that's partly based on what he could have been. He was already great with his best years ahead of him but in terms of sheer consistency year on year Daicos is #1 then Buckley

Poor John and poor Collingwood that he never achieved his oh so obvious astonishing ceiling.

People may laugh but if John had played on uninjured we would have got at least 2 flags - and probably 3.

He had that much power and impact.

But Peter . . .

Oh my word there really are no superlatives strong enough.

Sorry all back to normal business.
