Now at the age of 25 Macaffer the ability to become a swingman at both ends and also push into the midfield to become part of the rotation. Last season before his injury he was widely expected to have a more prominent role in the middle.

  1. Great article. Everything we needed to know on Macaffer condensed into a few paragraphs. Loved it.

    I’m a huge fan of your blog layout. I hope to have mine as good looking as yours soon.

  2. I quite like the layout, it is fairly easy to use and modify. The article was just one of a small series I wrote in early February. I’ve found people will come back and view articles that are not long winded and get to the point.

    1. I use Oxygen for my website however I’ve found that Enterprise (which I use at footyextra.wordpress.com) allows for easier sorting of articles. Under Oxygen, catergories appear on a sidebar or elsewhere, and page at the top, where both can be at the top with Enterprise.
