Bump.

Yeo and Boots putting on a season and a half. I think the Gap between them is now closer than ever. In fact if Yeo takes out the B&F, he might pull ahead of Boots.
Sheed's year has been so underrated. Other than the Carlton game has been our most consistent mid and very influential.

Yeo and Shuey have had their patches. Yeo is currently coming to the fore after having a slow start due to restricted preseason.

Yeo has turned into an incredible force over the last few months.

Leading the comp in tackles yet also can be so damaging in contests.

Last time we had mids lead the comp in tackles they had very little hurt factor (Priddis, Selwood).

He’s probably our most important player now as a result.

Nonsense, you've severely underrated Sheed who I think has been better than Shuey this year (even if Shuey gets more of the plaudits from the coaches, media etc...).
Shuey has been better. Sheed's hurt factor is below those two guys. He can't tackle, pressure or break lines like the others.

I think Shuey's kicking efficiency drops due to the difficulty of his kicks he attempts, but it's still about par with Dom's. Dom is still a chance to make it though. He's kicked a lot of goals but he's had a lot more shots than Shuey has as well. Shuey is rated elite for goal accuracy per shot taken.

Yeah Shuey doesn’t need half the amount of time that Sheed does to have an impact. I reckon Carlton picked up on that on Sunday and made an effort to apply physical pressure as soon as he took possession of the ball. I don’t think Sheed is someone who would ever be able to handle a tag very well

Just put Willie into the stoppages to lay some blocks for him!

Sheed played badly on the weekend, tried his 'back out of packs' thing and got done. I can't see him playing like that again, just an aberration I'd imagine/hope. Also those two dropped marks, uncontested. He surely won't do that again.

Both Shuey and Yeo are unique in the sense that both a dominant clearance players but for mids they both aren't really high possy players (well shuey is this year). Its also exceptional without NN or a good tap ruckmen.

I would love to see Yeo let off the leash this weekend.

Question is, who are our up and coming midfielders, our next generation, to replace Yeo and Shuey?
We have next generation defenders and forwards but no mids?
What if Shuey or Yeo get a serious injury anytime this season? Who replaces them?
Ahchee?

That is the problem right there. There probably isn't anyone knocking down the door. I'd say Redden would take the slack in stoppage work and someone would try play a more 50/50 inside outside role to cover Redden's running. Just a guess though. Not many have the athletic attributes of Shuey and Yeo.
