Melbourne United roster
Apologies if already covered elsewhere, however I'd be interested to hear thoughts on the roster and balance of this lineup.
With Goulding out vs the Kings you would imagine Vickerman would have turned to Agada to be the key wing target. Instead it was the 36 year old Newley. To me this indicates a lack of confidence in Agada. Looks a solid bench style budget import, nice on defence but not overly long, versatile or with scoring power.
The offensive mix of this team just seems out, great defence (especially with White to return mid-season) however they really need a Brandon Paul style of 3, as the offence has much too much reliance on Goulding.
Hukporti and Okwera look like they have huge careers ahead, but can’t carry this team.
JLA / Hukporti
Peatling / Barlow / White (inj)
Newley / Agada / Okwera
Goulding / Prewster
Delay / Ili
Very strange roster construction in my opinion.
