He's an outside defensive mid. He hustles and chases. He's not a clearance player.

I think we push the envelope with his stamina and our man fatigues. And can cough it up.

His best ball use is good. We don't get as much of it as we'd like. But when he's on he can hurt. Very reliable around goal. We might be looking to remind a few old enemies of that in September. And some new ones.

What’s the go? Have we seen the best of this guy? Thought he had another level of improvement… but perhaps we have seen his ceiling. Had some really good games this season but overall he has stalled.

Nah - he’s 24 and played 96 games. He’s a big game player and shows he can stand up when required.

Remember, he has often been left to carry the midfield at times this year without Dusty and Prestia and Cotch and Shedda fading a bit at times.

If we can jag 1 finals win (if we get there), the second final will be his 100 and I reckon he has another 100 in him at our club.

Hardwick mentioned him (positively) in the Port presser - so presumably he’s doing what the MC wants

Love the Fridge. Been quiet the last few weeks but if Hooch says he's playing his role, then fair enough.

Has Graham been playing a negating role in the last few weeks? He's only had 9,8,6, 7 efficient disposals last 4 games.

Thought he was very poor that game. Had a lot of it but when you have 7 efficient out of 19 disposals, 10 of them handballs, you have to wonder where the mind was that day.

I have not heard what it is, might be a stress injury ofr a hotspot, maybe fascia issues, heel spur or bone bruising or tendinopathy, but the rest will do him good regardless.

Fox showed him on the bench for about 10 seconds. It looked to me like his big toe was in a splint, along with strapping on the arch and ankle.

To quote the 12th man, he's got a swollen foot, but to be accurate,. more like 8-10 inches.:)

Apparently had turf toe and was being managed, but now a lower level stress injury.
