Welcome to the club
May you eternally deal with the pressure of not being Bryce Gibbs
We needed a midfielder and we got a midfielder. Hard to be disappointed
This is a good start!
Surprised we didnt go Hayward but welcome Jordan
Welcome aboard, Jordan.
What did I say guys!!!
Really like this one, best of luck to Jordan!
I was worried there for a sec.. defender????!
Drugs Are Bad Mackay?
Welcome Jordan Gallucci!
Neat kicking skills (albeit somewhat inconsistent), very good balance of inside/outside, very good speed, leads well, very athletic, tackles well.
Not my first preference, but I certainly think we've got a good one nonetheless.
Firstly, Gallucci has a masterful ability to lower his eyes, immediately find a good target over a short or medium distance and hit them by foot, lace out, where they want it. A natural right-footer, his passes by foot feel Sam Mitchell-esque. The midfielder excels in lowering his eyes, making a quick decision and hitting his intended target off one or two steps.
This ability was impressive around the ground but even more so at stoppages under pressure, when he remained composed and executed well, regardless of the pressure he was under. On several occasions from centre bounces throughout the game, Gallucci would receive the ball by hand, lower his eyes, spot a good target and hit a 15-40m kick cleanly from the stoppage, setting up a shot at goal. He just weights his passes perfectly - gently putting it out in front of his intended targets and seemingly never missing.
Gallucci's second signature play which proved every bit as eye-catching at the weekend is his ability to burst away from stoppages at speed. On several different occasions throughout the match Gallucci explosively burst away and left everyone else in his wake and would then go on to deliver a clean kick to a target up the field.
Also impressive is Gallucci's leadership. Once after an Eastern goal in the second quarter, Gallucci ran 35m to one of his team-mates to offer a hand slap of encouragement before going back to the centre for the next bounce. It's those small acts that are most appreciated and team lifting and it's terrific to see Gallucci at such a young age display that.
In ten years people will be looking back at this thread so be careful what highs and lows you predict.
Having said that Gallucci will be the greatest player of all time.
Quads of the gods, insane vertical leap, elite nickname
Gotta trust the process
Welcome kid. Now let's get going.
Have watched basically all the available footage of Gallucci in the lead up to tonight and he reminds me a bit of Steele Sidebottom. Hope he can reach that level!
Completely agree. Very worried when we first picked a defender.
I think Captain Furious just had a heart attack, btw
welcome, but I'm not gonna lie guys, 1:40 here I'm a little bit worried:
Welcome Jordan. Happy we didn't go with Cumming
you gotta trust hamish
Bit short but looks a decent mid which is what we need.
Glad Perryman was matched.

Sounds like a good one. Welcome.
Given Brodie was never sliding this far I'm very happy with this choice.
Surprised Berry was available as well though.
Looks like a pretty exciting player, finally got that overhead marking mid.
PS For mine and I'm sure others sanity. Can we please not make anymore Douglas comparisons.
Very happy with the selection, bloke will be a gun.
