    vanders launches long bomb from the middle

    think the main worry would be fitness. Even when he was fully fit he'd tire at the end of games with all the effort he puts in. Hope he can build up the tank and push for selection close to finals!

    The Clarry Pass

    Can't believe people are forgetting about Travis Johnstone....

    Brayshaw is fast becoming one also.

    Mr Jones

    You would have thought we lost the game on the weekend and Jones was the main reason... I agree with @SPC this is an odd thread. Unless he starts stringing together really poor games I don't think this is really a discussion. He had a really consistent first half of the year and since has played more of defensive role in the midfield blocking the oppositions midfielders while Brayshaw, Oliver, Trac and Viney win the ball. His disposal has never been elite by any lengths and neither is his speed but he's still best 22. The discussions about how MFC moves forward with Jones should be left until next year and post finals campaign/run to see how he can compete.

    King: Oliver can be Dee's Dusty

    These types comparisons/hypotheses get thrown up so frequently to players without much sample size. It's great click bate! That being said Oliver was a terrific mark at jnr level and while I certainly want him spending most of his time in the midfield I do prefer the swap with Petracca from mid to forward then I did with Trac/Hogan. It gives the midfield more balance and seems to allow better cohesion in the midfield with who is winning the ball at ground level and who is playing the outside mid role.

    Match Preview and Team Selection - Round 17

    I'm confused. What makes him a good replacement for Nev? I wasn't aware that he had any time spent playing down back....?

    Round 17 Non MFC Games

    The reliance on the medical condition of the player who has been hit high is a newish thing yeah? Would Tex not be in line for a week or two in the past without taking into consideration concussion or damage etc?

    Round 17 Non MFC Games

    Anyone else think that Eddie's was a goal? I thought Stewart swiped but missed it. Didn't see the ball change rotation in the slow mode. Edit: saw that replay just now. Probably touched.

    Match Preview and Team Selection - Round 17

    I don't think JKH has necessarily been in better form then Baker. I think its more about the role they want to fill, based around forward/half forward pressure which JKH at the very least provided last week. With Baker I understand he has speed and has strung together a few decent games at Casey but you can see he is still very raw and needs to work on his defense and positioning. We saw what happened last time we brought in a 19/20 yr old too early and I think against a fired up doggies outfit Oscar might get a bit lost on the wide open MCG. Listening to Rawlings on the podcast last week he still sounds like he's developing well but not there yet. I was surprised to see JKH selected.

    Round 17 Non MFC Games

    Was about to say the same. He is so f####ing cunning. The master at creating free kicks. The toughest body that flops at the perfect times.

    Match Preview and Team Selection - Round 17

    I guess the FD liked our balance last week. In terms of players who can play mid/forward and apply that pressure and spread that Stretch did last week I don't think JKH is a bad option. I'm glad we didn't pick Baker who clearly isn't ready. Who else would you pick to play this role? Kent isn't there yet being rusty in his first few games back. Only other I can think of is Bugg and I don't think he has enough dash to play on a wing. JKH isn't slow lol. He'd be as quick as Spargo or ANB. Not slow

    Changes vs Western Bulldogs

    I think its more a difference between the type of player. Spargo is more a natural footballer and knows where to position himself with good decision making, he is a better contested ball winner and has a more developed defensive side to his game. Oscar is much more raw and needs to work on a lot of the strengths of Spargo's that I just mentioned. I really doubt/hope Baker doesn't play this week. I think it will be Tyson for Stretch

    I really hope they don't bring Baker in. I understand his speed and has strung together a few decent games at Casey but you can see he is still very raw and needs to work on his defense and positioning. We saw what happened last time we brought in a 19/20 yr old too early and I think against a fired up doggies outfit Oscar might get a bit lost on the wide open MCG. Listening to Rawlings on the podcast last week he still sounds like he's developing well but not there yet. Vince for Smith of Joel isn't fit I'm not going to be popular but I can see them bringing in Tyson for Stretch. I think this is what will happen.

    Billy Stretch - Stress Fracture / Toe

    This really sucks Billy's been one of my favorite players since he joined the club. Has been building really nicely and starting adding some strength and size. I thought he played really well last week and was looking forward to him in our best 22 for the rest of the season and beyond. We all know how professional he is and will rehab accordingly. I have no doubt he will be knocking on the door next season when fit. He is a future gun for the this club. Best wishes Billy.
