That was the most puzzling one for mine.

I mean he couldn't show his wares this year so he was always in trouble but I'd have kept him.
He was gone as soon as Godden gave him a public lambasting....Godden wouldn't have done that off his own bat, he was but the messenger.

which is? And who is they
Ok, I will spell it out easier.

Gooch was recruited as a midfielder from U18 where he was played as a midfielder. The club's coaching rank, under Pyke mostly, decided it was best to play him as a small forward rather than wing or centre.

Chayce is very similar as a midfielder played as a small forward and f##ked with by the coaching staff. If you are a midfielder under 185cm with speed, the model for the AFC is to play you as a small forward.

Actually played midfield/forward/half back....IMO he played his best football as running back moreso than midfield .

Taken from Matt Balmer's 2016 power rankings.


#29 Jordan Gallucci
Outside Midfielder (Eastern Ranges/Vic Metro)
04/05/1998 | 180.0cm | 77.5kg


The athletic Jordan Gallucci has fluctuated around in my ratings all season. He showed plenty of promise in 2015 with many expecting him to have one of the better kicks in the draft pool. Unfortunately Gallucci could not find his feet as to where he best played his football, mixing between half back, midfield and periods up forward. For me I think he is best suited on the outside, rebounding across half back or on the wing. His kicking has struggled at times this year, at the 61 per cent (when combing TAC Cup & Under 18 championships). His athletic traits in speed and agility are outstanding, where he can burn opponents off running forward. Can win his own football in the midfield and his clearance work when on the inside has been strong.

Invited to train with us what are his strengths and weaknesses?
Strengths: Reasonably quick, athletic, tidy disposal, capable of playing inside and outside midfield, can move forward and kick a goal

Weaknesses: Injured his Achilles last year so question marks over his athletic traits which was a strength of his. Short. Not a prolific ball winner so can struggle to get involved in the match

We delisted him because we tried to play him as a pure small forward despite him playing as a pure mid in the U18 competitions. Naturally he struggled. We also played him as a half forward in our "graveyard" role which is a very difficult position for younger players in our structure and often results in low touches and no impact on the game (mostly because we don't rotate our midfielders across the ground very much, so our half forwards permanently stay there for the entire match). Didn't give him a solid stretch of games to establish himself, we had a hair trigger for dropping him.

He looked okay in the SANFL without starring, I'd say he was better in the AFL. You could see he had talent with some very classy decision making and disposals at times, but due to where we played him he was only producing a couple of good touches a match. Provided he can get back from injury, I think he could have a genuine impact as an second rotation inside mid, or as a wing, with bursts forward. He's a cream on top player you want to be delivering inside 50 forward of center after receiving it from your inside mids

I don't know about that, it did take a number of players by surprise.

I think the wording was slightly off IMO, but the meaning was fair
I think the achilles injury was the last nail in the coffin even though it's no fault of his own. Totally destroyed any chance he had to redeem himself after Goddens bake.

Making him the scapegoat after our pathetic capitulation (after being five goals up) in that showdown pretty much destroyed him. Never mind the fact he was out with concussion while the other 21 players rolled over without a whimper.

I can't recall this. Who made a scapegoat out of him?

I remember he got dropped after getting concussed in a showdown but we certainly weren’t 5 goals up at any stage, maybe 2 goals up at the most early on?
