#16 Josh “Fridge” Begley


#2236

I reckon Begley comes in when fit to take the role of Baguley. Putting him in to apply forward pressure first and foremost which I think suits him. He’s hungry, fit and a competitor and probably has more of a goal sense than Baguely; he looks like a natural forward


#2237

While I don’t disagree with this I do think it’s fair to say that bags has demonstrated pretty clearly that he has a nose for goal since his move forward


#2238

Yep.
Nothing like grinding out years as a back pocket on those forward pocket show ponies to give him a taste for revenge.
Can just see Bags thinking ‘Fark, how hard can this goal kicking lark really be, given the numpties I’ve had to play on?’


#2239

Judging by the Medical Report, we will be seeing a new slimline version of the Fridge this year.


#2240

he certainly looks in good condition in the medical report video. Has lost all the ‘puppy’ fat and very noticeable around the face.


#2241

Saw him in Geelong, definitely dropped any puppy fat. Looking trim and ready to go.


#2242

Begley to Geelong, confirmed.


#2243

dont joke about that. he barracked for them as a kid :weary:


#2244

Microsoft Paint?


#2245

Massive surprise packet… bags is a genuine goal sneak and if he had have played more of his peak career years up there I reckon he could have been a Ballantyne like antihero. Loved by bombers supporters, hated by everyone else


#2246

LOL yes. I don’t visit Blitz to make a living.


#2247

I do think he has displayed a nose for a goal that I didn’t think he would have. However I wouldn’t call him a genuine goalsneak. He holds his position (potentially) on his defensive efforts and team focus. I don’t think he is going to start kicking sufficient goals for that to be the main reason he keeps his spot in the side.


#2248

20 goals from 2/3 of a season playing forward for the first time in his career is a pretty good return in my opinion - particularly a bloke who’s gone past thirty and notably lost a bit of pace


#2249

wrong thread mate


#2250

Must have swapped the slabs of beers in the fridge for coconut waters.


#2251

One of his teammates dropped the word a while ago.
He swapped to vodka rather than beer.
Smart footballer is Fridge.


#2252

Was going to say coconut water and vodka. I’d swap to vodka but that stuff just does horrible things to me.
