#9 Dylan Shiel


#1901

Absolutely loving him, just want him to kick a ■■■■■■ goal!!


#1902

Absolute gun.
Key part of the “Essendon Midfield Dream Team”
All 3 play really well inside and out.


#1903

But didn’t we give too much for him?


#1904

For years at trade period we’d sit back and put the feet up whilst Hawks, Cats etc strengthened already incredibly good teams.

So happy the club realised something needed to be changed.

We paid up for our current b and f winner and possibly with Shiel have paid up for this years winner of the Crichton.

Good trades and look at the quality of the list now vs risking them on young kids.

Time and a place to draft kids for sure but the list was ready to inject some immediate impact quality in Saad, Stringer, Smith and Shiel.


#1905

Dylan is definitely a very good ducker and weaver. We should call him fleetfoot.


#1906

Oh no, Dylan’s swallowed the whole bottle!

#1907

He’s producing champagne football for us now.

No! Scratch that.

He’s producing champagne and caviar football now.

Yes! Champagne, caviar and private jet flights to Noosa football now.

Fark Carlton!


#1908

What a gun. Will only get better as he learns to play with his teammates and builds a synergy with them.


#1909

Will the Essendon midfield be talked of one day like the fabulous Brisbane and West Coast midfield of the 2000s?

Just need to get Myers out of there!


#1910

Will all the people way back up in this thread who said we overpaid please shut up and accept we paid the right price.


#1911

His short kicking is really classy, hits that 30-40m pass nicely, above 40 he can spray them.

He was immense as times yesterday, just put the hammer down and destroyed the opposition.


#1912

@CharlieDons more compilations of shiel running past people please.


#1913

Was there many?
Serious question as ICBF trawling through the posts


#1914

Trying to remember who was adamant about shiel not being worth 2 first round picks.


#1915

Pick 8 (ended up 10 IIRC) and if we keep tracking as is 1st as pick 15-18 with a second back isnt overs.

Whilst it would have been nice to get him for unders who cares. He’s easily delivering now

Is a fkn jet.

And we got Smith, Stringer & Saad for that matter for unders based on performances to date so you can’t win them all.


#1916

Yeah especially after the first two rounds, they went silly.


#1917

That was Dodoro wasn’t it? :joy:


#1918

This


#1919

Brought some composure yesterday. He has been a little off with disposal and he slowed his last few steps before disposing. The forwards and others have also looked to alter and improve their leads to him.
It has taken a long time but the mix in the midfield is finally competitive and can be oh so damaging. Midfield aspect of our list is complete.


#1920

Most of us are guilty of that occasionally :rofl:
