    One Jackie Chan goal doth not maketh a good game. Gags still under my microscope after today's game.

    Even though Gags stats. are underwhelming (as are those of VDM), for the team to win as they did, you would think that everyone must have been doing their job?

    Re: Garcia v Gallagher

    I’m prone to Garcia at the moment but Gaggs must have something we don’t see yet.
    He was captain of an under 18s squad wasn’t he?
    Maybe that’s the difference he has a better football brain ?
    I’m not knocking him as he is a hard player and doesn’t flinch.

    I haven't yet watched the game in full, and whilst I have no idea what Gallagher's role his stat line reads poorly.

    Re: Garcia v Gallagher

    I'm still at a loss to what Gallagher brings to the team and how many chances he gets.

    In the 3 games since Garcia was demoted Gallagher's key stats are:

    v Fre - 6 touches - 2 goals (one from a free & one out of midair) - 1 tackle - 3 clangers
    v Nth - 12 touches - 1 tackle
    v Port - 14 touches - 5 tackles - 6 clangers

    I'm all for players to be held accountable for their performances and whilst I don't agree, if Garcia wasn't fulfilling his role against Brisbane then he pays the price, but the lack of consistency from Bevo & the MC is infuriating to me.

    Re: Garcia v Gallagher

    It has been mentioned a few times that Garcia was earmarked for Liberatore's role when he retires.

    Is it possible that Garcia is actually battling Sanders for a spot in the 23 and not in fact the running players such as Gallagher, Baker and Poulter?
    More of an In Bruges guy?

    Then I'd be tapping Libba on the shoulder.

    He chews up lots of CBA's, gets lots of CP's, but has limited hurt factor with his possessions and is a big part of the reason why our midfield doesn't defend.

    It all looks good when it's going our way, but as soon as the opposition midfield turns up the heat or runs hard forward, we shit the bed.

    Our 3 core midfielders are 28, 31 & 32 and are all limited defensively... we need to change the mix yesterday.... and yes, Richards has been a good addition, but it hasn't been enough to turn around our performances.

    Bont the best Mid in the AFL, Treloar not far behind and getting more disposals than any other player and Libba a stoppage clearance king, averaging more than any other player in AFL, however, they are ageing and another reason why Smith must stay, Sanders fast tracked and guys like Garcia given a go.

    Libba in particular looks better, cooler and hotter than ever.

    Agree.

    Richards was most effective when Libba was out with concussion too.

    I've been thinking for a while that Libba, although incredible when it's a scrap, is now too easily burnt in the modern game with the rule changes ensuring more open play.

    If I was making the call I'd have Richards in the midfiled before Tom.
