Dyson is a ■■■■■■ good footballer although limited by his poor kicking but is not a natural leader. He has fallen for the corporate training methods rather than learn from the greats of the game and demand respect from teammates and opponents alike.
Too much cuddling and not enough challenging. You will lose a few soldiers along the way by challenging standards but the ones that remain will go into battle for you every time.
I fully can understand maybe he was just joking to make Myers feel better, and I know he cares, but surely as captain he should know that laughing is not a good look? Pat him on the bum and say better luck next time mate, not have a giggle about it. Time and a place, supporters are hurting and angry, probably not what they want to see from their captain after a tough loss.
Actions speak louder than words.
He hardly had a touch in the first half and really think his leadership is questionable at times. It’s up to him to lead by example and some of those floating bombs inside our forward 50 in the last quarter were disgusting.
He lifted a bit in the second half, but before that he was very ordinary, uninspiring and ineffective.
Works his butt off and has some great characteristics, but he doesn’t seem to be having an impact on the field.
His kicking can be so poor at times.
I dont get this.
You say theres lots wrong with the football club , but dys isnt one of them.
How is he not apart of the things that are wrong with the club, when he is a by product from and within all the things that are wrong with the club?
Thw things that are wrong with this club and its culture have grown and moulded heppell into what he and alot of the senior players are and consider "professional " standards, yet compared to well run football clubs, our standards for success are so far behind good clubs, that ita not funny.
So heppell is a problem and an issue , because he is the after production embodiment of what essington is and stands for.
So how can someone breed feom a ■■■■ culture and so many things wrong with it, see that there is an actual deep seated core problem with the xlub, certain players on the list et c etc , let alone be able to change or fix said wrong things within the club ??
Bomber Thompson was definitely right, we just still have way to many players at this club who are happy to jist be an afl player.
Sadly foe us, our “captain” is one of them.
