Sometimes you could swear they are deliberately handballing at each others feet. It is weird. I think we have been spoilt a bit. Sam Mitchell's GF against Freo stands out for mine. Sacrificed his entire game by dragging Crowley out of the contest. That midfield (Hodge, Lewis, Mitch et al) worked for the greater good.I agree and my point on Mitchell was that he impacts so many of our chances in the centre
For whatever reason (my opinion) it is like the midfield team don’t work for each other and the catalyst of it is Mitchell - not that they don’t do the structural and defensive things that are asked but that they don’t work instinctively for each other... or want to? Maybe I am reading to much into things and worpel
If your an opposition midfield we would be one of the easiest to match up on currently, all you do is match our outside and wait for a turnover or one of your mids to beat Mitchell and repeat.
We have no variation or point of difference to compete with currently and Mitchell burning it or creating issues for the receiver only makes the problem greater.
Our mids are not up for it or are not doing the team things for each other. Either way something is not clicking. A lot of posters put it down to all our mids being the same type of player and one paced. They could be on the money too. Without being inside the club it's hard to tell sometimes.
