I thought second rounds picks were absolute bargains for each of Vince, Melksham and Hibberd.

I was completely on the money.

That said, I also thought Lumumba would be a great pick up for us. ?

We were apparently going to select Melksham with pick 11 in 2009. The Dons selected him with pick 10, and we then suprised the industry by picking Gysberts at 11 (overlooking Talia). At least we've been able to make amends.

 

Fascinating ....now one of the fans' favourite players

Putting Melksham up forward with TMac has been a Masterstroke

Just gotta tighten that defence a few %

Heart in mouth when he played on yesterday and kicked with his left when he didn't have to which resulted in a goal. I suspect that means he is brimming with confidence (which I didn't share at the time).

Not sure who's been the better recruit. Him or Hibberd.

Haha I turned around and missed the play on and goal so that might have been a good thing!

He's become one of our most important players.

Gets a lot of close checking and rough stuff from opponents. That’s why he whinges a lot to umpires. The opposition know not to give him space because he is dangerous in one to one contests and if he gets the ball and into space he is lethal.

I loved that he took the full amount of time with his last goal and milked some more, asking the umpire how long, like he didn't hear. Good man!

I just... the sweet sweet joy of knowing that Melksham was absolutely hated by Essendon fans, and now he's playing better than ever and it turns out the problem was Essendon all along.

Sings the club song harder than any other player too. Bad luck Essendon.

Trengove and Scully were supposed to be the players to lead our club out of the doldrums at picks 1 & 2 of the 09 draft.

Whilst they didn't work out for us, the 09 draft has given us (eventually) Melksham and Gawn, who are absolutely critical to September success.

It could be worse - Bizkit three posts before yours said he’d prefer to bring back Cale Morton!

Someone used this quote elsewhere (could have been in this thread actually), but we only need to recruit players who are going to make us better. Melksham isn't one of those players. He isn't an upgrade on some of the depth players on our list and, therefore, isn't worth pursuing.

Yeah, you're a [censored] Wiseblood.

I remember we all raised our eyebrows when he was placed in the forward line, I was surprised and honestly didn’t think it was going to be successful.

I don’t think it’s possible to be more wrong, he is our most important forward in that he rarely wastes it. I think there was one moment where he could’ve gone for goal himself but was on his wrong foot so he chose to centre it and the eagles rebounded. That was one of he few moments where I said, “c’mon Melks! Be selfish, finish the job yourself!”

We’ve done some great trades in recent times, he’s up there with the best.

I'm only interested in players who will help us move up the ladder not sustain our position.

It's a no.

Lol. What a [censored].

Meh.

I mean, he would be great for midfield depth, but how deep?

If Goodwin sees something then back your man I guess.

But...

Meh.

Mate, you have no idea...

I too was down on Melksham, yet again Goodwin demonstrates he wasn't playing favourites and knew what he was doing. Is very nice to eat this sort of pie. In stellar company as well 😉...
