Just make him captain already!
2017 NAB Rising Star
AFLPA Best First Year Player
Yesterdays Grand Final Parade
How many more gongs will he pick up next week at the Crichton Medal.
Has there ever been a player at the end of their first year that is a more obvious captain than this kid?
Came to Essendon at the age of 16.
Won best first year player award.
Won Brownlow the next year. Youngest ever to do so.
Won two more after that.
Played and coached multiple Premiership sides.
I would like to see MCG do that.
Fair enough Alby, fair enough.
I admit I was on the McClugage bandwagon but stoked with Andy McGrath the kid just oozes class and leadership.
edit - Would put him the leadership group for next season.
We are blessed to have two kids in Zac Merret and McGrath as future captains.
Plus Daniher. We are building a very strong leadership group.
Can’t wait for him to get a bit more size and be playing in the guts. Few can go with his breakaway pace and agility.
Wen he moves into midfield, I think he’s a genuine inside player rather than a winger. His hands are super clean, and his handball the best at the club.
Replicating the four flags over his career would be ok, too
Id dispute that Ryder wouldn’t have made a difference. Tbell was pants. If Ryder gave us first use so our midfield want exposed defensively maybe things look a little different.
I can see him being a classier and more dynamic like dalhause or however you spell it. He and parish will be quite the pair and will complement hepp and Langford very well
McGrath will only last 6 games on the wing…
Until the club figures out to just out him on the ball and watch him dominate.
That reads like barrett’s sliding doors.
Super news with the signing of Saad. Now I can’t wait to see McGrath progress his career even further next year as he graduates into the midfield. I’m really looking forward to seeing the defensive pressence he brings along with his leg speed - two things we need more of. Just a little excited!
Your quickest and best hand-baller should be dishing out the ball 1st and playing wingman 2nd.
Sort out the Stringer trade and then lock McGrath for 4 or 5 years.
