@Blocker1963 you guys flattered them like a third coming. So they got their heads in the clouds and there it stayed. Mindless fools and could earned a lot more if he stayed, he shot his own foot. Idiots are borned everyday, there is no prevention. He is no game breaker, just an above average broke because of his size. Our Corey is the one with guts and performed weekly above his weight. Glad to be rid of him.
Except for Matulino and Packer who faded in the second half of the tournament, happy with the progress of both forwards and backs. Hope jennings is not injured as he has been quiet. Mimoroiski has improved better than expected along with his goal kicking. He will be a rally good player as he doesn’t let his head gets into the clouds. Nofo needs to be running more direct and Ehsan to increase his work rates. Thomson, as usual tried his heart out and I like him to model after Slater. The forwards are honest and will improve in the coming year. Madge has done a wonderful job in helping the players both individually and as a team.
@Tcat agreed. Initially I thought it was the money thing which was the reason he wanted an exit. My perception is that he played well within his capacity and thus didn’t feel there is much to achieve. He is big, he is strong and is an advantage, however he hasn’t reach a level that will decide or change the momentum of a game. He needs to really set his sights on this. If he can do this he will become an all time great instead of being only a good player. He has all things required to make him great or just contend with his current requirements.
I noticed the other players have set higher goals and many improved within their means coached by Madge. Hope Mattersons can get over this current feelings and become an all time football great.
Don’t like players that think too much about themselves. He has a good year, will he be able to maintain it in his second year. Can he quarantee he won’t have any injuries and maintain his standards?
I like achievers like momiroski, Thompson, Twal, Gardner, Marietta, Oliver and others that tried their hearts out. Madge has helped all the players improved and if they don’t have their heads in the clouds we could be a top 4 side next year. With a couple of new players and improvement in the current ones, we will be a lot better the following year.
@Spud_Murphy you raised and inflated his value before we have won any real game yet, thus he is putting his hands out wanting more. If he is that good, has he won any game for us on his own ? Is he a game changer, that is by his action influenced or dictate a game? We have others, honest, hard working and really performed above their weight or size, yet humbled and beyond expectations. These toilers are the real hero, like Corey or Alex. We have already put them up there after a year as the best before we have won anything, how will this great club of us ever progress? What happen when they get injured and did not perform, will they refund or reduce their packet? I will put my faith in Madge, as commander, he will decide each player’s value. We already spoilt a good player by putting his head in the clouds, the budget will never ever be enough.
