I was thinking hopefully FlossTone doesn't do the same thing to FlounderFlop.
If he does he will be out for a Millenium.

First time they meet since Patrick's devastating elbow injury.

Hopefully Nick breaks the ice and apologizes for any ongoing trauma caused by his brutal attack.
Ha! Surprised Scotty has said it will be awkward. we would appreciate it with Floss sit this one out so not to upset Dangerflog and invade his safe space.

Nice pump up for the Flossy one in the Hun this morn n thoroughly deserved. Flossy simply been a premium rock solid footballer for us year after year, pity the whizz bang experts rarely ever notice how good a player he is.

Now watch how many other footy watchers start pumping up his tyres.

Haven't read Robinson's puff piece on Nick today..... did he apologize for calling him a cheat a couple of years ago?

He bungled a bit on the night. Quite a bit. But in Q4, fresh off his own goal (own goal is not good), Vlastuin drove through the centre square and gently hooked a precise I50 to Shai. OK. He owed us. But he repaid.

Goes good.

And it's not like he had 93 CBAs for zip clearances.

Next time we're undermanned and bush pigs like Atkins are bullying our midgets in the guts, maybe we could think about throwing Nick in there.

Was thinking the same thing.

Sometimes - and I know some of you will come at me for this - but honestly, sometimes I dont think Nick does enough - as a big bodied player between the arcs. I'd like to see him help the mids out more by running to receive more between the arcs - or to take a couple of centre sq plays to help out with the rotations. He seems to play within himself often, maybe he's just got that laconic style of play.

I love him dont get me wrong, but I reckon he has more in him during some games.

A mixed bag from Vlas today. A few brain farts.

WTF was that hit on the Eagles player in the goal square for? Why do that?

thought he had a shocker, that was set up in his first 10 minutes
Exactly - he and a couple of defenders make awful blues very early.
Probably settled OK later but I missed what happened with the 50m penalty
He can have brain farts as mentioned elsewhere

You just bank it. Vlastuin will, under no pressure, drive it into their eyes at a crucial stage. Once every game. It's all good.

If he does it again he's a *frown*.

Flakey this year. But our best defender, overall. Tarrant and latterly Grimes improving. None of them yet ready for the Daniel Rioli explosion.

Our backline is still unsettled. We haven't got long to fix this.
