WELCOME TO THE MELBOURNE FOOTBALL CLUB - BAYLEY FRITSCH

Recommended Posts

He looks to have a good turn of foot and is quick and obviously athletic , attributes for the modern game and above all else is a bit of a freak !

I take full credit for getting this guy, by exposing all his faults to the other 17 clubs, who were scared to take him before pick 31.

Good one, Redleg. Thoroughly agree that you nailed it a few weeks earlier and that is why I got on the bandwagon with you. I thought your succint judgement came to the fore when you mentioned his illiteracy! Very apt, as players must be able to read the coach's chalk board meanderings - so that may well have frightened away the WCE. Looks like Collingwood were successfully frightened off, as well so that makes two significant arrows in your quill. 'Carna Demons!

I'd like to refer Redleg's earlier, stoic yet penetrating work on the Demonland forum in regards to our acquisition, the young Mr Fritsch. Applying a novel logic and a keen sense of inter-operability with other clubs' list managers prior to last night's draft, Redleg brought it all together in a timely fashion - so much so that the entire thread disappeared before our eyes and those of the 'sniffers' at other clubs. High praise and commendation is all Redleg's. -_-

I have to admit one mistake though, I forgot to mention his tinea.

Seriously though, this kid does have some talent and hopefully he can become a senior player with us.

Good call,  you truly are a visionary.

Even ENYAW called it in August in the Delistings at End of Season thread.

When we were talking about the showers shyness at other clubs, I just presumed that this was unstated 'tinea' detritis about his person but now he is signed on, I have been assured that this has now cleared up and he is raring to go.

He has even enrolled in a course in modern language, reads well now, including other attribute developments to meet those standards expected of him.

See, your motivation was outstanding in more than one regard. Even CityDee (above) has commented as further proof that he '...looks to have a good turn of foot...', which in itself regarding the above, now-unmentionable ailment is a definite sign of his positive change and readiness. Good onyer, Redleg.

So excited to see this kid debut for the MFC...   the X factor is huge and hes skills are sublime.

Should benefit greatly from adding even just  a few extra kilos.  He is very slight.

First day of training and Jesse fills Bayley in on his preferred delivery inside-50. Low and flat out in front, Fritsch.

Lovely user of the ball & good overhead but what's his defensive pressure like? If he wants to play forward he needs to chase & tackle.

Like the highlights, definitely an X factor which is a bonus.

With that number 2 on his back and his light frame, some of his plays remind me of a young Robert Flower.

Saw Fritsch play several times this year out at Casey and the kid has talent to burn.

Brilliant in the air for his build, good initial acceleration without being Jayden Hunt like and he tackles with intensity.

I'd be very suprised if Bayley doesn't make the grade and have no doubt he'll play senior footy in 2018 baring injury.

 

We've got a beauty!

It does look like he is a great recruit for us. Agility is just as important as speed and he has that. Endurance to do it again and again and to recover quickly will be his test the the coming season. Very happy that he was picked up - and it is an indication of how much our recruiting respected the potential of those appearing to join MFC before his selection.

You sometimes get a feeling about a recruit and I just think that Bayley will be a good player for us. He has got to this point by virtue of hard work and he has undoubted talent. I just think he will make it. He will vie with the likes of Harmes, Hannan, Bugg, Melksham, JKH and Kent for a spot and he could end up the best of them.
