Er...

So I finally got some stats from the Sandy v Cats game.

Arma had a lazy 34 disposals, 22...yes TWENTY TWO of them contested....

9 clearances and 7 tackles.

I think that is somewhat massive.

Put him in a forward pocket and send Gresh back.

Definately not cooked like a roast spud. I think he could play a permanent forward role as I reckon Steele and Dunny need to become our inside mids of the future.

Disagree about Gresham. He needs to start playing in the guts and on the wing much more. He's a natural onballer and yes he kicks goals as a small forward but its hurting his game and the Saints balance in the midfield. Throw him in there. He has the potential to be a Boomer Harvey type player.

In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death, taxes and the St Kilda FC

Gresh needs a week at Beach road.

Simple as that.

Against a Geelong side on their shitheap?

I Think that means something as our first haven't won there in a few of our players lifetimes.

Nah I take a close win down at Geelong in bad conditions for what it is worth.

That was Arma's bread and butter and he went to work.

What I really think we have be looking at is how we use him.

I honestly reckon Lonie should have to kick ten, 3 weeks in a row going at 100% efficiency before we even bother looking at him again.

Blind Freddy knows that and knew it a week ago. Hopefully our coach does also.

True, however, the way the Club is at the moment, we have to reward form and effort!!!!!

Have already answered that question in another thread, this is what I said and saw:

I thought Tom was very average in the first half, but showed a little bit more in the second half, positive for Tom as the game wore on!!!!!

Mind you, he did make Stanley look like Polly Farmer in the first half!!!!! Got a serious bake from coaches at half-time!!!!!!

Maybe worth giving him another week, although Longer was good in the VFL!!!!!

At the end of the day, play the one who is in the best form, don't think we can play both at the same time!!!!!

Use him as trade bait and send him North. You might get a reasonable pick and he will be closer to family. That’s what I’m hoping for at the end of this year anyway.!!!

Brisbane might take him. Don't think Gold Coast would be interested. Might get a 4th rounder at best or no compensation. I reckon he might go as an unrestricted free agent

I agree with this. Form has to count for something. Otherwise we may as well cut players now. I agree on Hickey as well. He was virtually unsighted in the first half. Second half he was much better. However he was fortunate to only have to compete with Stanley who I don't rate.

We won clearances and Hickey got a bit of the ball - so that's a start. GWS are thin on ruck stocks so he may get a couple of weeks to find some real form Hickey
