    Starting midfield friday night - who you got?

    So, it is well known our midfield three has been fairly constant over the past 18 months. The only real change has been with Liberatore being out Richards has stepped in and exceeded all expectations.

    This Friday night no Liberatore and no Richards.

    What are my fellow woofers thoughts on who is the starting three and what is your rotation strategy throughout the match? Keep ??em guessing or stick to a core group.

    Are you going old school with Bontempelli, Macrae and Treloar?

    Are you going out with the old in with the new in Sanders, West, Garcia?

    Are you totally flipping the script and playing Bontempelli forward?

    Or is Gallagher your third amigo? Or will Harmes be the third wheel? Is it a Bevo special and giving the keys to Daniel?

    ? so who you got?

    Great thread.

    I've no idea which way I would go...but great thread.

    Treloar's first quarters have been off the hook the last few weeks so I would start there and build it out...
    What should I tell her? She's going to ask.

    We have been starting hot, and I like that.

    I'm going Bont, Treloar and Garcia.

    Re: Starting midfield friday night - who you got?

    It is a must win game, so Bontempelli and Treloar both need to be there for the opening bounce.

    The third player is definitely a toss of the coin.

    How much of a consideration is given to who we think Collingwood will start in the middle?

    I really would like to see Garcia and West get significant opportunities through the middle.

    It will be disappointing if we go back to three experienced players (Bont, Treloar, Macrae, Daniel).

    We should really give the opportunity to the younger brigade.

    Bont, Treloar & Gallagher.

    Gallagher goes to Nick Daicos and follows him everywhere.

    Harmes, Garcia & Sanders are next in line for midfield minutes... West can also run through there as required. Would like to share the load more tanh we have in the 1st portion of the season and to play with a high intensity in there.

    I'm asking Macrae to follow around Pendlebury and to keep him quiet around the ground, but I don't want him in for CBA's.

    I don’t know if I’m in love with Gallagher tagging Daicos. He went to Gulden after Scott went off and got pretty badly cooked.

    I’d rather Harmes do it.

    I'm not in love with it either, but it seems the coaches are trying to give these types of roles to Gags so happy for him to have first go... if Daicos gets off the chain then Harmes can have a crack.

    Treloar, Harmes, Garcia

    Mix it up. Bont starts forward and runs to the contest so nobody runs with him.
    West can't start on the middle as he's per go to 'defensive' forward option and if we make Darcy Moore cry, we win. Simple as that.

    Re: Starting midfield friday night - who you got?

    I would start with Bont, Macrae and Treloar, with Bont to go forward, and West or Garcia to subsequently run through the middle

    Re: Starting midfield friday night - who you got?

    Bont, treloar definitely. I want McRae on the bench if in the team at all. If nick discos starts in middle then harmes. If not, Garcia.

    If we do not tagged NDaicos from opening bounce I?m turning the tv off. It?s an absolute disgrace how he isn?t tagged every week FFS.

    Dog God, your typo bought up an image of Nick in Travolta dance pose, one finger pointing towards the disco ball.

    Agree with your thoughts about tagging Daicos.

    Not sure whom I’d like to see as mids at first bounce but definitely want Garcia and West to have some mid time during the match.

    Re: Starting midfield friday night - who you got?

    First bounce will be Bont, Treloar and Macrae. I say Macrae because why is he in the team if he doesn't attend the CBA? I would prefer Garcia, but doubt we go that way.
