The thought of young, Chapman, Clark and walker tag-teaming out of half back and wing.
Bring on the swarm. Best part is the can all kick it with a modicum of accuracy over distance. So they don’t need to run and can stay fresh.
We are definitely gearing up to have a back-half game style. If say Melbourne rip it out of the centre square it's going to be crucial to get a spoil in and flick it out to our running half backs.

The speed, evasiveness and run down tackles I expected.

Being a decent mark and having an accurate chip kick at speed - that was a pleasant surprise.

But kicking running goals from inside the centre square?? Seriously???

Hate to say it, but maybe we didn't overpay.

Welcome Jordan, and God bless you for choosing us ...may running goals flow like the river of your namesake.

(As for Bell's comment on where he will play, personally I'm not fussed by that.

Once you acquire a dangerous weapon, you don't then go telling your opposition where it will be located or how you intend to use it.
There are ICBMs located all over the US, but buggered if anyone knows where they are, what they're doing, or how they intend to be used. It's just all misdirection folks.)

The issue is this.
walker, young, Clark, Chapman Ryan, Hughes,Wilson, Aish, Logue.

we are stacked at the back.

one of those guys needs to be on a wing with Freddy
Clark, Aish, Walker rotating through the wing, Young to the middle.

(None of that is likely though as realistically at least half will be injured at any given time)

A positive thing we should take into account is the age demographic Clark is leaving/coming to. A work environment with the majority of people being the generation above you or beyond (in football terms probably 4-5 years) can be extremely isolating. The life experiences, time after work, conversations and friend circles are comprehensively different. Clark probably would enjoy a hike or picking up chicks at Torquee. The old-heads at Geelong (so 80%) would more than likely much rather hanging out with their wives/kids and renovate a house.

Coming into an environment with a similar age demographic and interests could have a monumental psychological shift in his mental and physical state which brings the best out in him.

He did say this in his interview. He grew up as a WCE supporter - am guessing he wasn't keen on going to an older side, and said he loved the youth at Freo.

2013 LOL

Along with ....Freo will be so quick that we will have finished the game, taken the 4 points, bought a chicco roll and be on the bus to the airport by three quarter time.
And we would have if we didn't drive into a Lake.

Didn’t detect a hint of arrogance or a bad attitude in that interview, and the media were absolutely fishing for it.

I reckon he’s had some unfair and incorrect bad press.
I hope he is arrogant, we have to many nice guys on our list.
