Same efficiency as Ed and more than double Eddie

We should drop them too
Well one's playing an inside role, and the other is trying to make something happen at the bottom of packs.

I'm not suggesting he be dropped, but he was as bad at butchering our scoring chains as Newnes was (who should be dropped).

And one that read the ball/next phase of play better than most

Was also really good the 2 previous weeks, but the "ins & out posters" still looking for a fall guy

The names will rarely change all year Gibbons, Newnes, Plowman will always be targeted first

If Newman wasn't injured you could include his name too

I've seen enough of O'Brien to know that he would be a net positive for us over Newnes, if not in the first 60 minutes of his first game after being recalled, then probably from then on. Williamson just waltzed past Newman's defensive output while being more damaging with less possessions, and this week performed out of his skin.

You might want to go back and review Gibbons' decision making, because on multiple occasions tonight he ran into his own team mates who were also going for the ball due to his confusion about how to assist or impact the play. He also made blinkered and rushed F50 entry decisions, alternating these with instances where he didn't take an easy first option. In terms of decision making, I would have him ranked in our bottom 5 on the night, probably bottom 3, and that's something I see all too regularly from him.

Setterfield is another wonky decision maker, but I see huge growth from him within matches, and you have to reward players who learn from their mistakes and adapt on the fly.

Wondering, which of Newnes direct opponent beat him?

Can anyone name that player?
Trick question: Essendon are the most unaccountable midfield in the history of modern football.
