#1 Andy McGrath hates chocolate


#4619

Would make sense. Took a massive hit very early.


#4620

Just curious… how does McC compare in those ratings?


#4621

Tim Taranto looks like the one who got away
Still love Mcgrath though… hope he can bring Taranto to essendon in a couple of years


#4622

Taranto will be fantastic, but he benefits from being in that GWS midfield.


#4623

I’d take mclugage over taranto. Still think he’ll be the best of that crop. Can’t complain with McGrath though


#4624






#4625

Thanks but where’s the fancy-schmancy graphics???


#4626

Massive fan of this bloke but he had the fumbles last week and we really need him to stand up today. Big opportunity to fire against the in-form team in the comp.

Show us what ya got, Andy.


#4627

Show us ya ■■■■, Andy!


#4628

Fair to say I desperately missed his usual last quarter goals last week.


#4629

Had another really poor game today


#4630

Hes a worry


#4631

I love andy
I honestly do, i think hes a ripping kid And a good player.

But i honestly cant help but think we took the wrong player number 1, when you look at what mcclugage and Taranto are doing.
I really wanted us to take mcclugage and he has looked great this year.


#4632

Hope we didn’t botch pick 1


#4633

Draft a mid, play him there from day 1.

Not hide on the bank flank.

Sam Walsh, straight in mid. McGrath 2 years on back flank and now doesn’t look anything like a mid.


#4634

Why do we draft a half back flanker/mid and then play him on the wing that the ball rarely goes over to?


#4635

Not looking great by pick 1 standards


#4636

yeah, except he played as a back pocket in juniors.


#4637

I definitely wouldn’t be giving up on him making it as a mid.
Yes, we could throw him back into defence and he’ll probably be a very good defender for 10 years. I think that’s worst case scenario for where his career goes. Is that really a failure of pick 1?

But i’d Be persisting with him in midfield. He’s working hard. Good to see 8 tackles today. He’s been needing to tackle more, hopefully that’s the start of that.
If he keeps working hard things will turn and his confidence will improve. Just like the team


#4638

He was hardly WOG.

Was involved a lot and had a pretty physical game. Just didn’t get much space or time today.

He will dare I say it, learn from it.
