#25 Jake Stringer


#2134

Our forward line is outrageously exciting.

Lid off.


#2135

He honestly looks like he’s got neagle fitness levels. Looks fkd every time he’s on the screen. He’s certainly not a defensive runner, at all. Which is okay if he’s doing what he did today up forward, but you can’t carry a bloke who can’t chase the other way

When the ball is in his area, he’s good defensively, but apart from that he often gets exposed


#2136

So good.


#2137

Seems like he played a bit in the midfield also. Anyone got the stats?


#2138

Had the perfect view for the set shot on a tough angle. Had the perfect view for that dribble goal from the boundary. Had the perfect view the set shot out of the full.

Jake Stringer is fun to watch.


#2139

Not really. 2 clearances, 3 inside 50s, 0 rebound 50s.

The important bit was the 6 score involvements (5 being himself scoring).


#2140

Definitely started at a few centre bounces and drifted forwards after they were decided one way or the other.


#2141

Was at match today.

My observations were that in a defensive situation that is also a marking contest he’s effective in bringing the ball to ground. But not so much for a ground ball contest.


#2142

Easy to pick on posts which were made before the events happened because hindsight is a beautiful thing. But apart from woosha proving me wrong and making the moves, Hooker still had to go back for stringer to stay forward which if I didn’t make clear, was my main point.


#2143

Became a fully fledged Don today.


#2144

Could have very easily had 7


#2145

Today he was all bull, no dust.


#2146

Was my fav player outside Essendon… loved watching him go about his footy. I think everyone knew what he could bring, it was always a matter of when and I guess how he was played. Wrapt for him. He’s getting more comfortable now. Loved the boys getting around him.


#2147

Was Stringer like


#2148

Is that Walla dressed in a nun’s habit?


#2149

Sure is, Mad Monday with Walla.


#2150

Sensational.


#2151

Still not there. More is coming.


#2152

We must be about due for an article from his ex by now.


#2153

Really loved the double high 5, or whatever one calls it, with the fan after THAT goal.
