I'd love to see him make it. He seems like one of the best blokes in the side. But I'd rather win games of footy.
I think his numbers were good a few weeks ago, but his impact on the game low. He is so easily corralled when he has the ball and a liability when the opposition have it and are spreading.
He is one-sided, but it's not just that he doesn't have much of a right foot, his handball skills let us down badly when we are trying to move the ball quickly through the corridor. On one occasion last weekend he was stuck on his right side and he failed to make connection with a regulation right-handed handball. I would hazard a guess that his disposal efficiency is quite low.
Compared to Bird, I'd say Bird is a better defensive player, a better ball user, more capable of playing different roles, wins more the ball and makes better decisions. Myers has his left hoof when afforded space, which doesn't seem to be very often. Because he takes so long to execute his kicking action, he really needs a paddock to use deploy his weapon.
