Interesting thing about Cerra's kicking to me is I don't think his technique and accuracy are absolutely A1+. I'd argue he's not even the best kick mecnicalically in our side (Mundy and Crowden just for starters I think as pure kicks are better) and he actually scrubbers a non trivial amount of kicks too. BUT his decision making, speed of summing up options, his ability to see options and possibilities and angles. It's very close the best I've ever seen. I'm struggling to think of better.
Young will surpass him there I reckon.

Nah Young's long field kicking is sublime and unmatched in the comp for opening up the field (and thinking about his kicks doesn't harm them), buts it's not the same as Cerra's diagonal 40 metre flat crossfield f50 entries.

Yep, Young already had Cerra covered in a couple of those.

Yes but we're comparing vision/decision making, not kicking skills?

Best of luck to Cerra. Would lay off the snipes on his personality. I think he’s handled everything reasonably well. Doing his first Carlton interview from the study of Andy Brayshaws house shows there is no real bad blood between him and freo. If it wasn’t for covid I reckon we would have gotten another 2 or 3 seasons out of him easily.
there's far bigger w&$kers that have played in freo jumpers over the years and fcuked the club over. We can stay here all day and night talking about them.

Perhaps, but he could do no worse that have a chat to Patrick Cripps when he gets there, about loyalty & sticking it out in extreme personal hardships.

He had every right to get back to WA for family support, but chose to stay & continue the work he had put in to support the club that gave him the opportunity.

Cerra didn’t, despite saying the club wasn’t the issue. Weak as piss as far as I’m concerned.

Now he’s gone, we’ve worked out he was always a hack, soft, seagull with a toxic personality. Who ate puppies for breakfast and stole candy from babies.

Its just how it works.

Well I still think he's OK, but he's no Paddy Dow.

If you look back to his first season, I actually think Serong had him covered for i50 kicking (not in his second season, but was tagging to be fair) - as for speed of thought (and hands to match) again Serong comes out on top for mine, he's had some absolutely sublime moments. Still a big loss, but confident we can replace his output, albeit across a couple of players, and that Walls can use it to our advantage and see us stronger, if not his year then certainly the following year.

Can't help but feel that covering Cerra's role with a mix of Walters and Crowden would lead to no real loss in creative, precise kicks inside 50. Possibly may mean a loss in other departments, though. Definitely would required some reshuffling.

I like this idea, if we can get better value out of Fyfe and Walters by giving them Cerra's midfield time our team is much better for it.
