Indeed, like Teenage Fanclub - they’re on the record as hating verisimilitude.

Interesting hearing him talk about his love for the tactical side of the game and then mentioning the the way Melbourne go about it which he wasn't use to. I'm really starting to look forward to him and Langdon as a weapon. Teams last year put a lot of work into negating EL, I can see oppo coaches being faced with a dilemma if Hunter returns to his best on the other wing.

The training reports and now the interviews with Lachie and him now saying that he is starting to feel at home at the club and that he loves the tactical game. I am finding myself a little more drawn to him as a Melbourne player  !!!!!!

Question for those that understand the role/s of modern wingers and terminology such as fat side wing / defensive wing etc.

My understanding was that:

1. We took the ball from defence (eg a kick in) on the defensive side (Brayshaw / Jordon side).  We were setup so that we may not move the ball quickly but it would be harder for teams to win the ball and generate repeat attacks (as predictable as it became).

2. Langdon always played on the far side wing due to his elite endurance.  This allowed for additional midfield rotations but meant that we didn't take into account the preferred kicking foot of him or the other winger/s.

If Hunter is in the team and able to perform close to his ability / potential, does that mean it won't be so clear cut in terms of the attacking side?  Will neither of them be a defensive winger?  Will Langdon still always be on the far side wing?

Great post however I would like you to re post it in the Game plans, tactics and all that jazz thread. I think your questions might get lost if left here. Similarly, I've been thinking about posting there regarding the "Tactical Sub" and who or what type of players might be of the most benefit. This might also come into the wingers conversation.

I hope we swap the wingers so they play with their preferred foot on the boundary side. Langdon kicked out on the full a lot last season on his left foot.

2 points.

Ive marked your words in the past, not hitching my wagon to your star any more.

"If he's healthy" is the nub of the issue, some believe his best is 2 years back.

 

Which? You mean the ones re May when everyone was pouring on year 1? Lever? Or perhaps when I said Langdon would be our key to taking next step? 
 

hahaha I’m sure there’s been a few wrong opinions but that’s why they’re opinions old mate…

 

but when having a crack — be specific at least you dolt! Rude to boot.😇

 

PS — LETS HAVE A WAGER IF YOU’RE SO ANTI LH.. ie games played weighted to B&F finish? Or a simple Demonlander vote ergo if LH had a positive impact or not! Pick your bane/toxin/poison Monsieur 🙏🙏🙏

    TOUGH KENT'S TRAINING REPORT I journeyed out to Casey today and was fortunate enough to watch two quarters of match simulation. Here is a brief rundown of random occurrences/thoughts. First of all, there was no Jake Lever (ankle) or Joel Smith involved. AMW is still in rehab and was running strongly. It was Blue (Probables) v Red (Possibles) JvR was in blue. Ben Brown, T-Mac, Hibbo and Tom Sparrow were in red. Gus Brayshaw started at half back for blue and stayed there all game.
