#4 The Langford


#6002

Goes about his job very well, and was pretty good last night, has been going along very nicely, each week, but disagree re him being a gun (as yet).

Hopefully he is on his way to becoming a gun. :slightly_smiling_face:


#6003

With Zaka out, bring Clarke back in. Langers and Clarke work really well together. Let’s get this combo some serious game time.


#6004

The knockers are turning now he is getting a solid run at it. Good stuff


#6005

“Will only ever be a forward”


#6006

Yeah, well obviously he’s young and only just now getting a bit of a run at it but I’m more talking about his ability.

I’m still very confident we have a gun mid in our hands.


#6007

I got absolutely blind last night so I can’t remember, did he miss out on another holding free last night or did I dream it?


#6008

The one I remember he was tackled without the ball in the forwardline. Definitely should have been a free. Not a holding free though


#6009

Over zealous preemptive tackle on him when he barely touched it. Should’ve been a free.


#6010

Not a gun yet, but has some gun-like attributes, most eminent among them his ability to pick out the bold option and deliver on it. Needs to do it more consistently and more often, but it’s a valuable skill.


#6011

Essendon’s Simon Black but better and more laconic.


#6012

Why do you hate Simon Black?


#6013

Are you taking the ■■■■ Trev?

Coz that’s ridiculous.


#6014

Love his gutsy kicks through the middle. I feel good when he has it now.


#6015

Simon Black is one of the best players of his generation, Amazing footballer.


#6016

I am taking the ■■■■, but it would be nice if he got to half Simon Black. His game on the weekend did have some similarities, good in close, pin point risk taking kicks and a slightly long neck. I would say he is tracking at 2001 Simon Black levels, not quite 2002 yet.


#6017

Does not seem so slow with decision making anymore. Hope he stays in for the reminder of the season.


#6018

He’s getting better each week.

His disposal is becoming a real weapon, just wish the umps gave him a fair go.


#6019

One of the best we have.
Field or goal.
And not only is he a very very good kick, he is a brave kick. Takes the brave options.


#6020

Don’t like that he is keepong a kid like Myers out.

As for his goal kicking, we’ll ruin it soon enough.


#6021

I can actually kinda see it, in certain aspects.

About 1/10th as good in a contest. (Like most players to play the game.)

But yeah, he likes those chiselling 45^ kicks to open up the game in a similar way, and kinda has a similar stance/lookwith ball in hand.
