#37 Dylan Clarke - Brought In


#662

Fark! I didn’t know he was going THAT well.

So he’s in form PLUS he’s exactly the kind of wrecking ball we need to get into the mix.


#663

IN.


#664

If you know who they are…


#665

Clarke has one thing over most at EFC. He was drafted as a pure mid. Not a hbf or a Hf. Not even a back pocket. Our obsession with turning players into something that they were not when U18 is maddening. Clarke knows how to win the ball, run from contest to contest and defend an opponent. He’s been doing it for years. He doesn’t need reprogramming.


#666

WHAT RAMBOMBER SAID!!!
BANG ON THE MONEY!


#667

FARKING OATH


#668

This is what we all wanted from last years trade/draft season.

An inside midfielder who can

  • Average 30+ possessions a game
  • Average 15+ contested possessions a game
  • Average almost 10 tackles a game

I’d love to see his clearance numbers, but I suspect they would be 6+ a game.

He is what we all asked for, and yet he is rotting away in the VFL.


#669

No mention of Clarke in the ‘who put their hand up?’ Segment on the AFL site.

I swear the football world is conspiring against us!


#670

Surely you have realised by now that the AFL know exactly nothing about football.


#671

Bring him in and play him in the guts.


#672

#673

He wasn’t playing the exact same role, admittedly, but Clarke versus last year:

  • DreamTeam 77–>126
  • Disposals 18–>33
  • Kicks 7–>14
  • Tackles 5–>9
  • Inside Fifties 3–>5
  • couldn’t kick–>perfectly cromulent

#674

I envisage him becoming a Tom Mitchell like extractor at AFL level. Do you think he has another level in him once he gets his chance?


#675

has a sensible haircut, so how could he not?


#676

Is leading the vfl in disposals and can’t get a game in the shittest midfield in the league

Good god


#677

Makes you wonder what the heck is going on.


#678


#679

Yeah yeah,but the most important,most crucial thing is-
Does he have a good character?


#680

Well that’s not gonna fix our second half woes then is it!


#681

Could say we gave him limited minutes to keep him fresh for the Geelong game on Saturday :wink:
