Watts not to like?

Postby Bowey Boy » Fri 06 Oct 2017 7:26pm

I reckon let’s have a go. Loyal to a club that is giving him nothing. Unreliable source says spoke to Big Al today. Picks to burn.

Wrong question! Whilst he is undoubtedly talented he goes missing far too often. Why do the dees want him gone? BEcause they want guys who will be there when it gets tough! And so should we!

Might go MIA, but has genuine X-factor that we lack. Would boost our scoring a bit.

Change of environment has made a great difference to many players.
Michael Gardner, Fraser Gehrig, Stuart Trott, Carl Ditterich, Russell Greene all improved with a move.
Jack is a very talented footballer and I reckon we could get the best out of him.

Yes, could be worth a punt, as long as it doesn't cost us the earth.
Spot-on regarding Fraser Gehrig and Michael Gardner, BS.

Gardner and G-Train were already AA before they arrived at the Saints.

Melbourne's record of developing and extracting the best from their talent is appalling, possibly the worst in the league. Look at all the first round picks that didn't make it. It can't be they were all duds. It's the club. Who knows what his potential would be in the right environment? One thing's for sure, he's a superb kick. Good in front of goal, too. Things we most definitely need. At the right price, it's a yes from me.

Watts does a lot of things that I like. I just think he hasn't found his position or his role in the right system.

Would have to be a deal favourable to us in terms of trade value and contract length/size.
Clueless and mediocre petty tyrant.

Play him like we used BJ across half back.

Let him float around, help out in the ruck when needed.

Great decision maker and absolutely class by foot

That's how I'd play him if he came across. Very skilful player.

Fraser was a good player and we paid accordingly (a potential player and pick 18), Gardiner was at the end of his career with behavioural problems was just gop no where near his former height\s I'd say they all preformed the same as at their previous clubs as at the saints no big improvement, same with greene


In conclusion Watts is a dud with the occasional good game, changing clubs wont change that, just like Stanely a dud that produces a good game every so often (only dif is Stanley injures himself)

So BS, what do you think he is missing. It isn't talent so what is needed to get the best out if him? You must have some idea if you think AR and Co can do better then the dees mob.

I think he's quality, just plays like a flog under a flog club with a flog playing group. Far to much flogness at that club from top to bottom for him to flourish. Needs to get out and rid himself of the flogness. Most untapped player in the comp, could be a steal

No defensive side to his game. Opposite of where modern football is headed.

I think you will find Fraser was a much more consistent player at the saints
Gardiner was thrown out of wce so that was different but he still played some v good footy

I think you're flogging a dead horse.
