My 3 word player analysis v North Melbourne

Recommended Posts

Were you drunk when you wrote this one, joeboy?

After last weeks, which was really good, this one is way off the mark.  Your assessment of Salem's game is weird - he was sensational in the clinches with 8 clearances, tough around the contest and had an influence on the game.

Waite was his opponent today and he wasn't at the races ran him ragged. Waite had no impact at all.

Agreed was loose in the 1st but corrected this and played his part no doubt Oscar, Frost, Lever and Hibbo should always be the constant 4 defenders in our set up. With others rotating off half back, finally got the balance right.

Salem?? He was involved in everything! I actually like where is form is heading.

Agree. He did a Jack Viney today.

In the HFF members side a hobbling north player received a decent side bump from Salem while waiting for the ball up and pushed him over just for fun after the Roo player just got to his feet.

A mean streak?

Thought Garlett's steal in the pocket qualified as heroics.

To notch up his 300th goal too!

Jetta is 100% struggling with injury. I sit near the bench and he looks so sore every time he comes off. He also looks slow off the mark, slower than usual. I think he is battling on, because he is Jetta, but he is not fully fit in my opinion. 

Salem was excellent, especially in the first half. 

Also if only all players were ‘surprisingly held’ for 20 touches, 5 clearances, 8 score involvements and 2 goals like Oliver ?

Watched Frosty closely today. Did some good things but has the unique capacity of being able to outsmart himself. Should always be played alongside a smart footballer.

Would prefer Frost at Casey...we will struggle in big games if we need to rely on him, he's just not reliable. No football IQ.

I hope Petty comes on quickly & Hunt finds form.

Oliver - was surprisingly held

20 disposals 2 goals & 6 tackles...not his best return but Jacobs has taken some big name scalps in the past.

Clarry showed he can handle a tag, great composure for a kid.

They were saying on the radio Jetta has some knee tendinitis that needs to be managed, he certainly did look sore at times today

Like it or not, Salem is one of our most important players. Once Watts left, he is the last remaining bits of class. I have really high hopes for him.

Lewis wasn’t wayward.

80% disposal efficiency and our best by foot.

Some of his passes were sublime.

Think you should take a break Joeboy, rubbish assessment. 

Garlett worried North defenders all day and took a lot of off the ball [censored] from them, yet still kicked 3. 

I’m not a Salem fan, but credit where it’s due, best 4 quarter game from him ever.

Clarry showed he’s quickly working out how to beat a tag, the move forward in the last should have been tried earlier, easily beat his opponent

Just because he kicked goals in the last doesn't mean it was the only time he was tried there.

He has been rotating forward in the first 3 games as he did again against North.

Good to see him hit the scoreboard yesterday, he will get better at the role.

Jones - continued excellent season ~ tick

Bugg - bobbed up effectively ~ excellent day out

Kent - an encouraging return ~ can he maintain?

Garlett - no heroics today ~ freakyness freaks opposition 

Oliver - was surprisingly held ~ earnt his pay

Hogan - prolific all game ~ verge of super-stardon

Petracca - tough and dynamic ~ becoming more Martin

Fritsch - some impressive touches ~ in and out

Lewis - important but wayward ~ head in hands

Vince - steady in defence - excellent again today

Melksham - struggling for form ~ is he injured?

Salem - just a game ~ best MFC game

Tyson - prolific but wasteful ~ usual Tyson game

Wagner - increasing in confidence ~ worth persisting with

Frost - exciting but iffy ~ Lever good influence?

Gawn - dominated the centre ~ best since Jim

Harmes - tough but limited ~ bath water problem

Hibberd - was disappointing again ~ did as needed

Jetta - just a shadow ~ carrying injury probably

Lever - learning to adjust ~ Frost might help

McDonald - made important decisions ~ better than Dunn !!!

Neal-Bullen - didn’t show out ~ requires more consistency

Re Oscar listening on the radio they said on a number of occasions that he had done everything humanely possible to stop Brown but couldn’t. Brown got 4 but 2 were from dubious frees by someone else. I think Oscar had a draw on the night.

Not only that, but Brown kicked at least 1 goal from a down-field free kick.  Nothing Oscar could do about that.

Also, I'm pretty sure Waite kicked one from a down-field free too.

Oscar and Frost worked well.  Can absolutely see our backline fitting the three (inc Lever) moving forward.
