#3 Darcy "Darcy Parish" Parish

OH ■■■■ HE THREW THE GLOVE


#4811

To be fair Langford is playing more forward than mid.

I think people just need to get used to the fact that Langford will undoubtedly be the better player.


#4812

I love your optimism but the fact is no trend or stat supports your belief… yet.


#4813

I thought I started the trend


#4814

Fact.


#4815

I did say that Parish was stagnating and I got shot down for that.

He was dropped a couple of weeks later.

It’s not like I said anything controversial😊


#4816

I and some others said joe was clearly playing injured.

you know how thats gone.


#4817

Disciplined for lieing.


#4818

for what?


#4819

I agreed, but I went the path that it was simply a fitness issue. The same for Langford, lacked the necessary fitness plus he needed to study up on a new role and get some practice at it where the result has less significance. Both have a few years before they peak and what a sight it will be.


#4820

In a lot of ways the two players are polar opposites.

Parish is more inside when everything says he shouldn’t be and Langford is the opposite.

I value players that can cut sides apart rather than grind them away.

It’s why you will never hear me asking for Wallis on here.

I think Parish can be a good player and I’m pretty confident he will. I just think that Langford will be a star.

The annoying thing is that Langford is playing mostly that forward/midfield utility role when he should be on ball all the time.

I can see why they are doing it though as we are still a slim chance of finals.


#4821

Do you think it’s a combination of his height and strength up fwd, maturity/experience and coaches lack of confidence in defensive pressure for the time being that’s holding Langford back from the role you want him to play?


#4822

When everyone converts… Please.

Only Muppets thought Parish wasn’t any good. 90+% of blitz have been big fans of Darcy from the get go.

But please carry on being smug.


#4823

The only person not on board is the one posting after you


#4824

and all the nuts going on about clayton oliver, but please keep trying.


#4825

Best to ignore them. You may as well get upset about not drafting Chris Judd if you’re going to worry about players we never had access to


#4826

parish looks to have soaked up Langford’s midfield minutes.

It’s part of the reason I was so hard on Parish earlier. Langford cane in and really started to show his worth.

Langford is very good at the defensive stuff so I can’t see that being the issue. He chases and does all the 1%’s.

The only thing holding Langford back in my opinion is belief from the coaches. He’s clearly not going to have the impact straight away but he needs more exposure.

I have watched him a lot in the VFL and his tool kit is big and when it all clicks he will be a player.


#4827

the only one soaking up langfords minutes is myers.

you’re deranged on this.


#4828

No one is soaking up Langford’s midfield minutes. He is playing as a mid, and as a forward. Just like Stringer is.


#4829

All the injuries to our forwards are soaking up Langford’s midfield minutes
