#16 Josh “Fridge” Begley


#1350

What have you seen at Essendon that makes you think he can?


#1351

Answering a question with a question?

I just thought you may offer some insight.


#1352

Lock for round one I reckon


#1353

What sort of answer is that?


#1354

I reckon Langers & Begs should swap possies.
So - Begs can become the part-time VFL mid specialist, and Langers can move into fringe/potential/fill forward.


#1355

Exactly😄


#1356

I’m miles more bullish on Fridge than Langford. Firstly, because he has great kicking skills, secondly, more mongrel, and thirdly, seemingly a better temperament.


#1357

With Raz and Laverde injured, I would say green and Begley could both play round 1 now


#1358

Agreed, barring the obvious ones in parish and mcgrath, begley is our best young midfield hope


#1359

Get him into side - anyone over 6 foot with a bit of meat on their bones, and mongrel, goes into the side. Guelfi? Get him in. Clarke? Stuff it, give him a run. McKenna goes in the middle too. Big bodies and mongrel at the bounce… let’s not overcomplicate this with systems and strategies to compensate for a lack of muscle and weight in the middle - get muscle and weight into the middle. You know it’s true… I’m Sam Kekovich.


#1360

Also he looks like he wants to deck everyone.


#1361

Disturbing flashbacks of Rene Kink in an Essendon jumper.
Muscle and mongrel flabbily bouncing down the wing chasing the play.
God no!
Do you ever learn?


#1362

Nup, never learnt nuffin’ Did me know harm - I is stil reel smart


#1363

Wasn’t he up front running with the mids preseason in the endurance running?

If so maybe he could start to push into the midfield later in the season.


#1364

Big chance for round 1. Hope he shows a bit again on Sunday.


#1365

I assume you are to young to have been forced to see the hulking hairdresser, well past his prime, lumber around, which is why you missed my point.
Another Sheedy brainwave - to introduce “ muscle & mongrel” that was left gasping on the Windy Hill turf.
Looked good for the first five minutes.
Looked sad for the rest of the quarter.


#1366

To assume makes an ■■■ out of u and…

Watched Rene play, had his footy card. Not sure why you think picking an extreme example of an overweight footballer from another era makes any relevant points in a forum post about modern day footballers… but hey, I get it, fat, slow guys wouldn’t get a game today… thanks for the reminder.


#1367

Maybe it was something about the line above.


#1368

Is on the interchange bench go get em son and book spot in the team for rd 1


#1370

Well maybe you are.
Or maybe you’re just a farking tossser.
