|V/AFL Clubs||Geelong, Fitzroy|
Angie Muller was a flame-haired left footer whose clever, often brilliant play was laced with venom. His direct opponents were said to often find themselves feeling very sore indeed by the end of a game. He joined Geelong in 1933 from North Geelong, and made his senior VFL debut in the opening round of that season against Collingwood at Victoria Park. Regarded mainly as a wingman, he was actually a highly versatile footballer who could perform with credit in numerous other positions, most notably as a rover, half forward flanker or centreman. He played a total of 115 games for the Cats between 1933 and 1941, kicking 37 goals. He also played interstate football for the VFL four times. In Geelong's winning grand final of 1937 against Collingwood (reviewed here) he amassed 28 effective disposals and took six marks in a near best afield display. Muller crossed to Fitzroy in 1942, but managed just one game for the year before retiring.
