#4 The Langford


#5601

He’s been tearing it up in the vfl midfield for weeks… just give him a decent run to show what he’s got.


#5602

He deserves a game but i can’t see worsfold making more than 2 unforced changes


#5603

No. I want to see him get an extended run as a midfielder in the AFL seeing as he’s dominating the VFL playing there and he showed promise in round 1 as a mid.


#5604

Thing is he can do both. And certain players do. Dangerfield has been used forward to good effect.

Our coaches could be more creative and visionary with Langford and manage him through both roles. If he goes forward and pinches a couple of goals then that has to be a good thing.

For me, it’s about giving him a decent opportunity to play AFL football, and see if he has what it takes.

I agree. One of my big knocks on Myers is that he’s so one dimensional and it hurts the side when he spells forward or back or he spends extra time on the pine and we don’t get the full benefit of rotations.


#5607

I watched Langford with interest against Sandy, and I was quite impressed. I thought some of his handball was very good, and his ball handling clean. A couple of times his second efforts were better than what I have noticed in the past eg he tackled and then was up and into the contest again immediately. Lastly, I didn’t see the hesitation with the ball in hand - he was quick and decisive.
Definitely time for a prolonged go in the seniors for mine.


#5608

Hmm, named in the forward line…

however, no myers, parish, you’d think he would play in the middle…


#5609

But how about his aggression and attack on the footy?
the guy pulls out of hard contests.


#5610

Mate - you have it in for him. WOULD you have run back into the North oncoming players in game 1 2 or 3 whenever it was??? Nope i didn’t think so

Start supporting and stop the critiquing- it does you no good!!


#5611

Donninton pls…

You want him as a lead up forward, but now want him in the middle.

We both know he’s playing mid. Just pretend to be happy he’s getting a game, then burn him.next week.

Give it a rest ffs.


#5612

All the best Mr Langford, may you have an awesome game.


#5613

I have no right to it… but damn I feel proud of Kyle. Has been dropped continuously for two years for no real reason, just puts his head down and goes back and consistently kills it in the twos.

Fingers and toes crossed that this is his moment.


#5614

How Lav gets a game before Langford is astonishing


#5615

Skipworth


#5616

langford and laverde in the same team?
this must be pretty ■■■■■■■ rare.


#5617

but its a very good mix


#5618

True, but he will probably have 18 possessions and then be dropped for Myers next week.

At least that will make for interesting B.B. threads this time next week!


#5619

The only way to find out finally if they are up to it is play them for an extended period

Then we can stop the debate


#5620

Agree.
