Tom on a Wing

Recommended Posts

Thoughts on TMac playing on a wing?

Yeah he plays mostly up forward but what do you think about him moonlighting on a wing at the start of quarters?

It’s a team sheet

It's not just the team sheet. He does line up on the wing a lot usually at the start of the quarters. Presumably this is to throw off the match ups of other teams for a bit.

Semantics really. He is the best forward we have got, and if Goodwin chooses to use him differently then he won’t have a job for long!!

It's genius eh..

I mean...no one ever expects him to then line up at Half Forward !!

The MFC brains trust in fine fettle 🤣🤣🤣

I'd be laughing as the oppo coach....well that's one less to worry about in the arc. Rebounding"s easier.. win-win..for them !!

Let's keep footy simple, Simon ;)

Put him where he is doing the most damage - and that would surely be booting goals.

When we interviewed Roosy he seemed baffled by the move and wondered why you wouldn't play someone where they are best suited and most damaging.

Yep quite a few times this year he has basically said WTF demons about how we are playing particullay the ease teams score against us. 

He spent 3 years with a defense first mindset now we so easy to score against

The reality of the old 6 backs, 2 wings, 4 in the middle and 6 forwards is only for the papers now.

Besides the ruck and 3 mids and that's only at the starting bounce - the game is made up of 2-8 backs or forwards (depending on where the ball is and state of the game) and everyone else is a either a stoppage mid or back only 15-20 meters from that stoppage.

Just another example of Goodwin being too clever for his own good. Next we'll probably see Oliver playing full back to stop him being tagged.

Not going to win anything playing him on the Wing. Goody would have to have rocks in his head to play him on the wing for long periods of a game again.

85-90% as a powerhouse forward.

Is having Bayley Fritsch roaming across half back, a wing and half forward another example of Goodwin being too clever for his own good, or proof that the bloke is willing to try and utilise the players in a way that makes our side better?  Oliver at full forward last week was another master stroke.  You think you're being funny with your above comment, but it simply makes you look like someone who is childish enough to make generalisations about the game and nothing more.

Tom McDonald might spend 5-10% of his time on a wing.  It's nothing.  If it keeps the opposition guessing and allows us to play a fluid and flexible forward line then I'm all for it.  No one was complaining when we were doing it during our winning streak, either.

But they needn't guess....as soon as the ball starts flying back from our arc because the clunking half forward that's supposed to be there isn't...then he'll (TM) be repositioned properly

What's the bet ?

( No guessing required )

CHF is where he should be with Hogan at FF. End of argument.

Team sheets are mostly [censored] outside of midfielders and key position players.

A difference to the nonsensical team sheet...in our instance, is that Tom has actually started games....on the wing. Still nonsense for mine.
