Round 14 was another interesting chapter in the 2012 Southern Premier League story and the main protagonists were still South Hobart and New Town Eagles.
Coach – Stephen Pitchford
Overall guys. Ive been thinking, as players: Woolley vs Morton? Both the same age and much hyped. Who would you say has been better this season and who has the most potential?
Hi Mr Anonymous,
It’s an interesting question but I don’t think pitting the two against each other is necessarily the best measurement. Both play in vastly different playing structures. Morton is able to play a free flowing role up front that provides him with plenty of opportunities to have time on the ball. He is backed up by a solid defence and midfield trio and in recent weeks seems to have relished the opportunity he has been provided at a senior level.
Woolley has had some stand out games this year and I think it would be fair to say that he perhaps has a greater physical presence on the field. He gets less of the ball and has been moved around positionally which must make it hard for him to adapt, and hence work out where his role in the team is.
Both players are exceptionally talented and both seem to have their heads screwed on along with a solid work ethic.
In short, both players are different and playing in different structures so I think it is hard and perhaps unfair to pick who has the most potential. In terms of who is having the better season, currently I reckon it is pretty close. Woolley with a stronger start and Morton just starting to show that he can change a game as well.
Thanks for the question. As long as these sorts of things are analysed positively we are all for it.
Cheers Callan, I appreciate your insight mate
Strange that you have three University players when they lost and no Zebras players.
Certainly happy to take recommendations if you want to put some players forward. In defence Bull and Barnard dealt with much more coming their way than the Zebras defenders and Hindmarsh was named best on park in the middle.
We can see why it looks a bit baffling but none of the Zebras players really shone for us. That’s not to say that we are right though.
Thanks for the comment all the same.
So in the FFA prevailing nomenclature, the formation of the team of the week is: 1-3-2-2-1-2. Or is it 1-1-2-2-2-1-2, or …………. What a unique shape!
The formation came more from trying to fit the names all in! It should really be a 3-4-1-2 formation!
Thanks for the scrutiny,
