The experts at Fox sports just discussing wtf we are going to do to improve.
Bucks: The Bombers have recruited for speed for years.
Jon Brown: They need some mongrel, wheres the Toby greene ?
Lyon: Well where are they going to get that from?
Brown: Well that’s Ben Hobbs and Archie Perkins.
Sorry Ben, you turn 20 next month, but Fox footy says you are the mongrel who has to carry the whole midfield physically for the next few years. Hopefully Archie Perkins will give you a bit of help in the mongrel department.
Fark I wouldn’t bank on that. Have my doubts on him even making it, let alone adding mongrel and hunger for the contest.
I’d be saying the mongrel needs to come from Draper, Caldwell, Hobbs and possibly Tsatas. Perkins seems that if he were to reach maximum potential, it would be more class than mongrel.
We are very light on mongrel. Need to outsource.
Vive le difference ! Footy teams need a variety of player types. Tom Green and Josh Kennedy for GWS are different player types but together with Coniglio they demolished Ports highly touted midfield. If Setterfield can play as he did in the first few rounds, I think our midfield can stack up ok.
