2018 Player Reviews: #9 Charlie Spargo

Recommended Posts

SMALL PACKAGE

The diminutive Spargo stands at only 173cm and is both the smallest and youngest player on the Melbourne list but he has a great football pedigree and from the moment he stepped up into the Melbourne team, he was ready to go. He can kick goals and run down opponents and his youthful enthusiasm is infectious.

Was our lucky charm there for a while we couldn't lose a game without him. Big season required of him to be part of that midfield depth.

Plenty to like about Charlie!

He doesn't get a large amount of the ball but has this tendency to make things happen whenever he has possession. His work in the final against Hawthorn was elite by anyone's standard, let along for an 18 year old in his 17th game.

Could be anything, it is very hard to say. We have had quite a few players who have shown a lot of potential in their first year and then dropped off badly. Let's hope he keeps building, I see a lot of potential, particularly if he gets some weights into that kicking leg and develops a more penetrating kick. 

I agree he seems to have a very good instinctive game, that is something that is almost impossible to teach. If he does the hard work and puts the rest of the pieces into the puzzle he could be the small forward we have been looking for.

Should've been rested after the Hawthorn semi…along with everyone else on the team.

Will end up as a midfielder, probably not next year, but with bursts. That level of footy smarts and natural ability needs to be where he gets more of it. Size not an issue, he’ll be a gun. You don’t play almost a full season as an 18 year old in a top 4 team if you ain’t.
