Gee Martin is frustrating to watch. Clearly very skilled and versatile player - but I lost count of how many times he fumbled, overran the ball or went to ground in a contest this weekend. Poor disposal and dropped marks seem to hurt the most when they are coming from a bloke who you know is capable of so much more.

It seems like every week this year he has come just short of having the sort of impact I believe he is capable of, and while it is far from the biggest problem with our list, in the coming years could potentially be the most expensive.

Am I the only one not so certain about Martin?

No you are not l feel exactly the same.
You just missed missing basic crucial set shots for goal constantly also.

Martin one of the best get and gather off the ground players I’ve seen would love to see Him attack the ball like Charlie Cameron both similar players but one works a lot harder..

We need Weller through the middle. He is quick, good runner both ways and use the ball very well.
I like the thought, but I disagree at present time.

Especially without Harbrow and Hanley in the team.
You need two of those good ball users in the back line or you just turn it over in transition and then you lose the game against a quality side that can take advantage of that.

At the moment Weller is the only guy in the back 6 with reliably clean disposal by foot.
I feel like Ballard could be this player, but he's not yet (one of the more exciting prospects on the list, in my opinion).
Murdoch is filling the role at the moment, but he turns if over a little too much for my liking.

Sorry Burgess
Boddsy, I think King will be too easy to knock off the ball in one on ones and ground ball contests, he is still bit like a baby giraffe and figuring out the read and the pace.
