Brad Green

Recommended Posts

Bruce, Yze, Miller

Look at those names.

They were all voted into the leadership group ahead of Green.

No wonder our club is a laughing stock.

I reckon he'd go missing if he was left to rot in the forward pocket all year long. He's a very dangerous secondary forward, but I think he would be wasted playing there all match.

Leave him in the midfield rotation, but instead of rotating him off like the rest of them, rotate him forward. If he's not fresh enough, rotate him off every second rotation, so you get a rotation that goes like midfield-forward-midfield-bench-midfield-forward.

Im with ya on that Nasher. gets me why they dont do things like that. Also it would disrupt the rotations of the opposition.. Bit harder to do a [censored] for tat rotation when one is still on the field.

edit

as a thought.. why wouldnt you swap Davey for green in that manner

I like the idea of him being a forward, rotated through the midfield if he isn't getting his hands on the pill or the midfield is struggling.

Generally I think exclusive forwardline roles should be left for those who are either genuine KPP players, or whose engines are too small to play regular midfield roles. Green is an asset in the middle when his form is good. I think if he was stuffed in the FP with only infrequent runs through the middle it would be a waste of a fit and capable midfielder, which in my opinion is much more important than a secondary forward.

Yesteday's game was about the most pressureless game of football I have seen in a long time. The only sustained pressure was the pressure a player put on himself.

This was the sort of game that many people tried and true players should perform well like Bruce, Green and Robbo.

Green had a good game but I was disappointed he hit the post and the shanked a set shot when both were gettable. He should have been talking of six goals not 4.

Green is a trier and not a world beater. He will never consistently dominate either the midfield of a KFP. It codswallop any one person wrecked Green's career up forward beyond Green. He was not good enough and Nasher's observation about Green disappearing was a consistent act when played up forward earlier in the year.

I disagree.

Green was played out of position by Daniher because we had no genuine midfielders and he and others like Bruce were forced to assume a role not suited to their style of play.

You lot underrate the value of a small or crumbing forward. By all means give him a run in the middle every now and then but Brad Green can have half the number of possessions in the forward line as opposed to the backline/midfield and yet be twice as damaging.

I would love to see this as well. Similar in some ways to Ryan O'Keefe.

I agree that Brad Green is a better forward than defender and worth keeping

His best position might be on a wing as he seems to excel better with less traffic

have always liked players who break the lines especially with todays fast paced style of game

Brad Green is 184 cm and is not a small or crumbing forward and lacks the pace and nous to play that role. We have Davey, Maric and Wonaemirri as those players.

Its a pity that your assessment of Green is not backed up by his performances. Green does not have the wits and skills to be a permanent forward.

Rhino, we may have those players but they are not doing the job, just chasing other players around, with reference to Green who I have bagged as soft in the past was surprised and enjoyed his game on Sunday I believe he can play forward and do a better job than Robbo or Neitz at the moment, there is one way to find this out who is right or wrong and that is to play him there at the start, until then everyone will keep on having a say.

He played his early years up forward and he struggled in a FP and will be cut to pieces as KPF given the questionable supply down forward.

He can pinch hit as 3rd/4th up forward from time to time. But where this side is at present and will be this year a "soft" :rolleyes: footballer like Green will struggle.

In all honesty from a pressure perspective it wont come much easier this year than Carlton. I would be hesitant to benchmark any performance just on that game

I am a bit hesitant about Green backing up this week, but I am hoping that DB might have got through to him, at least it is a start, now if only Chook can look interested and stop missing tackles chase hard instead of ooppssss I missed him again.

    CONSISTENCY by The Oracle

    "I think we have got a team that can win a premiership, and if we get in this year, I don't think there is a team that is going to want to play us. This year is not a write-off, I don't concede that. Not at all." — Collingwood President Jeff Browne. I love this sort of optimism from the Magpie President after his club’s eleven goal defeat at the hands of the fast rising Hawks. It’s consistent with the fighting spirit of the club that won last year’s flag.  I only wish I could say the s

    FEARS by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne’s worst fears about the absence of Max Gawn were realised when it received a shellacking from Fremantle’s ruckmen Sean Darcy and Luke Jackson who dominated the hit out tally in their game at Optus Stadium on Sunday by a massive 47 to 19. As a result, the 50-point deficit at the end of the game proved to be a loss that was long foreseen that was two years in the making and demonstrated a complete lack of hindsight and planning from the club. To add insult to injury, Jackson was a D

    RAIN CHECK by Whispering Jack

    The Frankston Dolphins broke a run of six straight losses against their neighbours, the Casey Demons and kept their hopes for a long-awaited return to the VFL finals alive with a 27 point victory over at Kinetic Stadium. Casey was welcomed to the Peninsula by grey skies, heavy rain and angry seas with threatening white-capped waves whipped up by gale force winds. After a slow start in the opening term when they failed to take advantage of the breeze, it appeared that the Demons had decided

    DEMONLAND - Good evening, Demon fans and welcome back to the Demonland 2024 Grand Final Podcast ... before we took that last phone call from a Demonlander, we were discussing how the club overcame it’s midseason slump, the season-ending injury to Christian Petracca and the loss for a brief period of skipper Max Gawn due to a  crack to the base of his right fibula, to slowly surge up the ladder turning our detractors into believers and how it ended the year triumphant in the finals with our capta
