#35 Matt Guelfi - Welcome to the Midfield


#1042

I kinda don’t care about the Rising star nom, but it’s great that both Ridley and Guelfi have had games worthy of the nod.

Hopefully Mutch, Redman, Clarke & Francis join that list later on in the year

Getting good form out of that list is crucial to pushing the club forward.


#1043

Must say Guelfi had a great game against GWS.

I remember one contest where he went back in flight hard in defence against taller opposition and killed the ball over the boundary line when he had no right.

He has a great intensity about him.


#1044

The way the rising star works, he could play a blinder against Richmond but some other kid who has had a good run of games gets the nomination. Then he could have bit of a drop off the following round and get the nomination because he played really well the preceding rounds.


#1045

The way the rising star works, he could play a blinder against Richmond but some other kid who has had a good run of games gets the nomination. Then he could have bit of a drop off the following round and get the nomination because he pushed that ■■■■ weak Buckley aside like a palm frond and told him to fark off after Buckley did the head butt.


#1046

I don’t care where we picked This kid in the draft…
He’s a first round pick. Probably a top 5 pick. This kid is a gun.


#1047

Absolute hard nut. Great 1st half against tigers, play him rest of the year, very happy with this unit.


#1048

Stood up in a pressure cooker. Love him allready


#1049

Hard as nails.


#1050

Chose to bump cotchin when he could have tackled. Just for that he plays every game this year.


#1051

Doesn’t panic, plays the percentages, goes in hard.
Some of our senior players seem to have forgotten these basics.


#1052

love his pressure and effort around the footy, thought he made a few dumb decisions with ball in hand but that will right itself with time.


#1053

Very impressive already. Game is evolving and must play the duration of injury permits.


#1054

Don’t think we could ask for much more from him. Looms as being one of our biggest draft steals in the past 20 years.


#1055

One of the few positives from tonight. Love his toughness and intensity


#1056

kid thats overlooked in several drafts.

taken with pick 5000 for all intents and purposes.

tackles to hurt, puts his body on the line, and CAN GET HIS ■■■■■■■ HANDS FREE TO AT LEAST DISH OFF A HANDPASS TO A TEAMMATE INSTEAD OF GETTING PINGED FOR HOLDING THE ■■■■■■■ BALL.

so sick of our ‘great kids from great family first’ round picks that are as strong as a melted butter.


#1057

Hate to be negative but hope his turn overs tonight were an exception and not the norm.


#1058

Would have been best afield for us in 1st half for sure. Good effort vs reigning premiers.

We should have a rookie list choc full of midfielders like this.


#1059

Forgetting the part where he got caught in D50, I think the rest were mainly caused by the oppositions pressure and not having any movement forward of the ball. Seems to be finding his feet a bit more every week. Barring injury, he’s best 22 for the rest of the year.


#1060

Contributing solidly and looks best 22 for now, but it seems like plenty are getting very carried away in this thread.

I think his best long term position is Bags replacement in defence


#1061

Like i said ,
Will be a future leader at the club
