Has OMAC surpassed his brother? (The Age)

Recommended Posts

I believe Omac is the best full back of this century, and probably of all time.

 

(If we keep saying it enough, it becomes true. I've seen it work at other clubs.)

I reckon this has been put out by his agent prior to contract negotiations

Of course he has.
Any-one who saw his sensational falcon on friday night will agree.

It'll only take one bad match for people to be calling for his head.

To be fair to Oscar he's asked to do a lot more than Tom was. Tom also got a lot more support when he was a defender. Oscar's best was with Lever supporting him and then he's been back to the old Oscar since, but slightly better.

That's what it means to be a younger brother.

OMG i knew the Age has essentially destroyed its credibility in the past few years, but this is the final confirmation if ever it was needed.

Clickbait x 1000

Oscar:  “I think a key to a good finals team is to have a really settled backline that is willing to do anything to save goals, and defend really hard, so I think that’s what we’re building towards.”

And so it was Friday night.  They played and defended with purpose and desperation.  Look forward to more of that this Friday.

And:  "Oscar remains out-of-contract but insists a new deal isn’t far away".   Probably won't be announce until after our finals run.

That can't be right. A demonland poster (whose name escapes me) is confident he us not 'locked away' because he is not best 22 and club are holding odf with a view to trading him.

Sheesh.

Dr cool is getting cooler.

Well, when you're trying to spoil or mark, good positioning is the key.

He's clearly been working on that aspect of the game, if he can now spoil with his 5th vertebrae.

A month is a long time.  Most sheep around here were calling for his head.  Not many of the nervous nellies were sticking fat with OMac.

This.

All the c&$p that went on four years ago about Dunn versus OMAC. It was obvious Dunn would never play in a Dee premiership and OMAC was pinpointed by Roos and Goody as the go-with option. He hasn't let them or us down! Only another 240 games to go Oscar . . . and they'll still be into ya mate!

As a backman TMAC's best was/is better than OMAC's. As a forward there is no comparison.

Click bait from the age. Either that or Cherny simply has no idea.

Did anyone here actually read the article? The title was a bit of a trick. He's surpassed his brother in games played without kicking a goal now.

Tom's settled up forward. Oscar's settled down back. He's developed well over the past 12 months and will be important for our club going forward. Hopefully a new contract is signed soon.

I’m not that fat according to my BMI, but I’m sticking fat for Oscar! 4 year deal soon to be announced!

As a defender it is a reasonable question. Oscar is a better decision maker and field kick than Tom. 

By the end of next year I suspect he’ll be seen as the better defender
