Training Friday 8 February


#429

Worth First and second -third round selections in a trade.


#430

Even Stringer is a bit more of a medium… even more than Begley.


#431

He has been tracking well over the preseason. Some real development in his body.


#432

I guess I’m saying I don’t think carrying the ball is what comes naturally to him. And I don’t think his kicking is that great either.

To me, he shows a lot in the contest, and not much outside of it.


#433

I’m a big Mynott fan.
Kid shows every indication of being a very good inside mid. Lovely hands and very nice timing.


#434

Better than Betts?


#435

Toby Greene


#436

Better this year I think, but Betts obviously better overall.

I love Fanta but Greene is probs still ahead even with the brain fades. Fanta has more upside to come though I think.


#437

Fantasia needs to stay fit and he will prove to be worthy of the discussion.

Certainly has the talent and the drive.

Must… stay… fit.


#438

I too think Fantasia is the best small forward in the AFL.


#439

the least you could do is PM me ya pumpkin head!


#440

fantasia is easily a top3 most important player for us, with joe and bellchambers, hes our best link between midfield and forward line


#441

Houlahan hasn’t really come on. But I tell you what Mozzie in a few years could bypass both Fantasia and Walla.

Ease up Maxxy


#442

TBC, surely not. He’s not even a top five ruck in the competition and after Gawn and Grundy the standard drops away significantly.


#443

our best wins last year was when he dominated the ruck.


#444

If Fantasia had stayed fit over the last few years he’d easily be at Greene’s level, probably past him too.

Both of them are among the most dangerous smalls inside 50, and both of them are able to go through the midfield, with Fantasia being far more damaging in that department.

If he stays on the park in 2019 I have little doubt that Fantasia will be widely considered the best small forward in the comp.


#445

Fanta is my favourite player, our most important player and our barometer but on his current record he’s not even close to the best small forward in the league.

Yet.


#446

Fanta is easily in the conversation for the best small forward in the competition. He plays a far more expansive role than Green or Bruest who rarely set up outside 60 from goal, Fantasia is one of the best at pushing up towards half back and starting the chain for a full ground transition.


#447

Maybe, but I think we saw a general improvement around the contest so much so that when Stringer was rucking our clearance differential didn’t change.


#448

There’s a couple of forgotten names:

McNeice
Houlahan
Mynott
long (has had a few mentions)
Big LAV
Dlarke

Any comments from watchers?
