    I'm marking him down on those three missed shots. All of them were very gettable.

    He had more touches but also looked like he had more midfield time, so he should be getting more touches. Didn't have any influence with the ball to my eye.

    The pressure acts are really positive, his defensive work has probably kept him in the team and might continue to do so.

    I just feel that he could benefit from some confidence building games back at Footscray as the quality seems to have dropped away from his game in the last month.

    I reckon they'll just play JJ in the VDM role and put Cleary in the 22.

    I don?t think he plays the full season in the seniors - I do think VFL time is inevitable. Just doubt it comes this week especially when VDM is likely out injured, and we?ll miss his defensive pressure. Also helps his case when Weightman is out for a while longer

    I thought Gags has had his best game so far this season and he wasn't the only one missing goals they should have got.
    I like his composure and doesn't seem to panic. Yes he may need a spell at some time but if his stats are moving up I'd keep him in.

    The chances of getting dropped managed or rested or whatever they call it is close to zero but outside of a couple of good games this year Ugle-Hagan has been disappointing and not just slightly disappointing. If it wasn't for his undoubted potential and the fact that he might break out and win us a game he should be due for a a couple of weeks at Footscray.He had a chance to fill his boots last night but he didnt contribute much to the win. He should be under the microscope for a break but wont be. We should bring in Lobb and play Darcy more as a permanent forward.

    We should stick fat with Marra for another few weeks he's a had a really tough month and think he just needs to play.

    We may be gifting games a bit at present but the more games we get into him over the next two and half years the better off we'll be. Same goes for Darce imo.

    With the senior team faltering and Footscray performing well Im dubious that we should have him floating around and being selective with efforts. You are obviously close with him and his family and probably others are here as well but why cant he work through his challenges at Footscray like most others would be? We need wins and based on what Im seeing so far hes not going to help us achieve that at the moment.

    I get it but a number of our young players are treading water a bit at the moment. He is still making a contribution though. He takes the heat off Naughton and he is one of our only forwards leading up and creating space in the forward line.

    He should have had 3 goals last night but his kicking was off. Would 3 goals rather than 1.2 make a difference to you or is a body language thing?

    Hes laconic and when a laconic player is down on form it looks worse than the more intense players and I hope I understand that but with Marra its beyond that.How many goals he could have kicked or what he achieved isnt my focus its more about if we should be accepting that hes not ready to play. Schache was laconic and copped it every time after a poor performance but we will of course accept it from Marra.

    Some interesting challenges for our defenders
    Who takes Greene?
    Who matches on Hogan, Riccardi and Cadman?
    Then they have some some handy smaller forward.

    I'm particularly interested in who Cleary, JJ, Dale and Duryea match up on.
    Duyrea to Greene.
    JOD to Cadman
    Jones has to go to Hogan unfortunately. We will lose Jones intercepting ability but not sure we have anyone else to go to Hogan.
    Keath to Riccardi.
    More of an In Bruges guy?

    If VDM is injured I would bring in Arty Jones.

    Cleary in for Bramble. We will lose some run but hopefully we gain some stability and better decision making with Cleary in the starting 22.

    Not Clarke? He seems to be the first in the queue. I mean i know he made a few errors but his first qtr v Hawks wasn't too bad.

    Jones has pace and pressure. IMO he is more of a like for like than Clarke.

    Tony Scott’s been off-Broadway. I’d bring him in to replace Laith.
