I agree, that’s why I like the appointment of Skippy in midfield.
The cohesion he had going with the forwardline was impressive. There wasn’t a game that we looked one dimensional and could be shut down and I think a lot of that was down to how skippy had them working as a unit rather than individuals. The players worked for each other creating space and providing overlap and I have not seen that for a long time.
If he can get the midfield operating together and playing their roles then we will see a lot of improvement fast.
The fortunate thing is we have McGrath, Merrett, Parish, Smith and Heppel that are blue collar workers first and foremost, but with the added ability to be very dangerous. Of those five players only Heppel is playing at his peak.
Then we have the Stringers/Langfords of the world that will provide the upside.
