#39 Trent Mynott - Welcome To Essendon


#123

Could be good, could be the next Will Hams.
Desperate, see ball get ball type, but his possessions are a bit scrappy, and usually in packs - that’s why he’s relatively anonymous.
Build him up and see next year.


#124

The problem with these three is they don’t kick enough goals. We need goal kicking mids.


#125

Trent?

Mynott.


#126

All three are inside mids or in Mutch’s case, both inside and outside.

It’s the Merretts,Heppell,Langford’s and Smith’s of our midfield that need to hit the scoreboard more often.


#127

I like Trent, think he will be a good midfielder…reads it well at stoppages.

Mutch is the best of the kids…just needs to believe he belongs in the AFL


#128

All three of them are a little vanilla, in a good way, kinda. Their problem atm is, they are are all mids who haven’t shown any ‘weapons’ and can’t really play anywhere else and so their opportunities will be limited.


#129

Mynott’s best weapon at the moment is his timing, which is lovely. Holds back on his disposal to give the receiver the best possible chance. Specially by hand. A very nice skill to have. Like the look of this kid.


#130

Definitely seems really balanced with how he moves and disposes of footy.


#131

IT’S TIME


#132

I’ll be honest he is a hard one to spot on field, his kicking looks neat, can hang in the air bit though that should improve in time


#133

How was he today


#134

I thought he was good.


#135

Looked alright. Strong competitor, has the sort of mongrel we’re after.


#136

Watched him closely today and he impressed, goes after the ball well and hunts the opposition too, has a few tricks as as well.

He went up for a speccy and almost pulled it down, seems nifty around the goals, has some good evasive footwork and seems like a smart users in and around the clinches. Based on what I’ve seen is the equal of Clark and Mutch, albeit a year behind; probably has a higher ceiling and more versatility - think Guelfi.


#137

How is his pace and his kicking?

He’s a good size by the looks of him. 185cm and not a complete lightweight.


#138

Pace didn’t really stand out to me either way. One thing I’ve noticed with his kicking is that it hangs occasionally, but he would be an average kick, probably more damaging than Mutch but not as consistent, though I haven’t noticed if he is as dual-sided yet.
