#9 Dylan Shiel


#2381

Since his biggest strength is his explosive run and carry of the ball that should typically mean he finishes with a kick. But I like that he mixes it up as you don’t want to be too predictable and the opposition are ready for you to take off and you get nabbed. Although he does have the pace to pull it off most times.


#2382

And yet the overuse of handball plays right into their hands given their improved pressure.


#2383

Again, absolutely agree. And obviously if they were spoken to about it, it didn’t sink in.


#2384

No goal Shiel


#2385

I friggin’ hope not, seeing as how it wasn’t an issue.


#2386

Agree mate. Whether he was instructed to play like this or he just went into his shell he was nowhere near as damaging playing the handball game. Even his bad kicks in the last few weeks have gained a lot of territory and worked out far more often than not. Kick the ■■■■■■■ ball!


#2387

“Dylan, give it off by hand so that someone else can bomb it long and high on Joe’s head.”


#2388

I want 2018 prettiness. Though the stat increases are useful too.


#2389

Interesting. Stats wise he is doing more in 2019 but in a much smaller area and less going back. Maybe with Saad and McKenna we don’t need Shiel’s speed in defence as much.


#2390

Congrats in advance to Shiel for breaking his Essendon goal Maiden!!
Not one… not two… but THREE big ones tonight!
(Highly Optimistic!)


#2391

That’s gonna be a fantastic first quarter.


#2392

On second thoughts, I’m unsure whether Shiel even has a heartbeat at this point.


#2393

Been so bad tonight


#2394

Struggling with the hard tag. He will shake it off second half.


#2395

Give the man a break I reckon, he’s allowed an off game or two


#2396

he will come good. and kick his first goal


#2397

Positive of Shiel’s game to date - we know how we’d go if he isn’t playing.


#2398

Could be the first player that requests a trade back to his old club mid season.


#2399

You reckon the Hawks would give us a 3rd rounder for him?


#2400

Thrashed by Hewett. 8 possessions to three quarter time. Good grief.
