#9 Dylan Shiel


#2401

He is a run and soace player. Game wasnt suited to him.


#2402

Hewitt moved on to Merrett in the the second. They send to role a few through Shiel, Jones most prominently. Parker also had a clear intent come off his man to block him all night


#2403

Should also be said that he lifted in the last and tried to drag us over the line


#2404

His first 3qtrs was terrible. He lifted in the last. We needed a lot more from him last night


#2405

He’s been trying to get used to our game style and game plan and just discovered we don’t have one.


#2406

Its pretty clear that today if a club decides to target a player they can shut them down. Look at O’meara last week. They halved his disposals one week to the next. The thing is that usually allows another mid to get off the leash, as Zerret and Hepp did last night. But it was actually our poorest 6 players, who were so bad compared to the Sydney kids that cost us the game.


#2407

This is so true. There were 6-10 passengers that only had to lift 10% and we would have won the game. You’d hope for a good 4 or 5 changes at least this week.


#2408

Nah - the only reason they look different is because of the volume of data and the way the map is drawn.


#2409

You just wonder why we don’t play a tagger. Look at the grief it gives Shiel and Merrett


#2410

We are not getting full value from his possessions. It’s that simple. He’s not an elite player in a real sense until we do.


#2411

In the way that the game is played now, most clubs have taggers except us. That is just another way in which we make hard work for ourselves. We’re at doing that.


#2412

That would require tactics… Essendon no do tactics - it’s no how we roll, baby!


#2413

He has done it. First goal for the bombers. Many more to come.


#2414

Thought he was great tonight. 25 disposals, 13 contested, 2 goals and the best part went at 76 percent efficiency.


#2415

Dylan! Great game, awesome kicking and 2 goals!!!


#2416


#2417

BOG for mine.


#2418

finally broke through and kicked 2 goals! Hopefully it has now broken the dam wall and we will start seeing these goals more consistently.


#2419

Good game, hopefully this is a sign of things to come. We don’t have many goal kickers & need some mids to kick goals for us


#2420

His best game so far for the club.
