Jake Melksham

My melkshake brings all the dees to the yard


#2522

Didn’t we largely play Melksham as a high fwd/midfielder when he was here? I certainly don’t remember using him much behind the ball

I’m a bit confused by some of the reactions here, but then I was confused by the constant Melksham hate on here at the time


#2523

Has turned from a player that fumbled every ■■■■■■■ time he went near it to a 95% one touch player


#2524

His decision making has improved and he is now pulling off ‘those’ bullets into f50, doesn’t get caught as much now either.

Some players just need a change of scenery to properly mature and realise their potential, we have a few of those types as well.


#2525

He and Caddy are proof you do sometimes need to give players time to reach their full potential.


#2526

Caddy is proof that some turds float to the top.


#2527

Caddy was actually pretty good for Geelong in the midfield the year before they brought Dangerfield over. Once Dangerfield was there though he went back to being a full time forward. Obviously Richmond has gotten the best out of him splitting his time. Personally think he always plays best for them when he also gets midfield minutes.


#2528

I reckon that’s a big factor. I don’t reckon Mitch Duncan has taken Ablett and Kelly’s arrival well. Not a shadow of what he was.


#2529

The thing is Richmond told him he wouldn’t get much time midfield and needed to get his head around being a HFF. He came out and said that early this year. He said once he realised this would be his role he embraced it and has played well.


#2530

I don’t recall him being that fumbly?


#2531

I’m sure Dees tried him on wing halfback at first. Didn’t work so they tried him forward…last resort. Pure fluke

Could always kick a goal could Jake


#2532

There’s about as much fluke in it, as Brown playing well as a forward this year


#2533

This is still the 2nd most prolific year of his career; he’s just not quite where he was last year.


#2534

You wouldn’t be saying that if he were playing for us. I wish he was.


#2535

is a spud


#2536

Wtf? Did you watch any Melbourne games this year?


#2537

i did not, but he played no good games for the bombers this year lmao


#2538

quality thread bump


#2539

I reckon Jake M played in a manner we would have loved our Jake S to play this year.

He had a great season from the Melbourne games I saw.


#2540

Where did he finish in the B and f?
