Re: Who do we want?

Last year No. was worth at least a late first round or second round puck...he was unproven, homesick, and not in our best 22. A year and patience/persistence later and a very different story....nothing less than a first round pick... Kinda my point. Setterfield is unproven, not in their best 22 and...

Re: Who do we want?

We're not done. I don't know anymore then that. Just hearing we're not done. what are we giving for shiel? I know GWS just want picks, so it would be obviously pick 9 and what else? Is this deal going to be a problem? Could another club swoop in at the last second if essendon cant satisfy GWS? Ther...

Re: Who do we want?

To land some “gun” midfielder you have to spend in the vacinity of 1.1 - 1.5M dollars per year for a lot of years. Unless it’s Dusty Martin, Dangerfield, Tom Mitchell etc, that sort of coin is f****** ridiculous. Shiel being offered 1.4M for 6 years is insane. f****** insane. Not for St Kilda or Ca...

Re: Who do we want?

Because it sounds better than "Shiel knocked us back." Then it`s an indictment on the club that they don`t have the personel capable of helping him see the benefits and potential success of joining us. Fkng whoreforn have a good enough mid-field already (compared to us). :evil: Riiiight. And yet in...

Re: Who do we want?

Gaff &/or Shiel have my interest. What's the reality here re: EFC? Anyone have any clue? IMO I think we’re a better chance at Shiel or Setterfield...but if we can get them and Gaff. Party time 🎉🎉🎉 Just looked at Setterfield's stats... GWS sholdn't be asking for more than a 3rd round pick for him. 2...

Re: Who do we want?

Any truth to the rumor that we’re talking to Martin from GC? Surely they wouldn’t let him go?? Rumour is that he’s seeking a trade to EFC That rumor is false. He's talking to a lot more then just us currently. If the lad’s Manager has contacted the club to feel out our interest...fair enough. If th...

Just wondering.but I wonder if this name will pop up in the next year or 3? Jordon Kickett Given Derek was from Kellerberrin/Tammin,maybe not. If he is any sort of relation,I’ll be curious to know where this 16 year old will be heading shortly? He kicked 4 Goalsin the Avon Association Grand Final,t...

Re: Who do we want?

Is the club keeping it on the down low re trade targets? Why is it that you hear about Richmond, St Kilda and North Melbourne’s plans but only the odd and rather vague passing mention of Essendon’s interest in certain players. Surely we have to go out and land a marquee player to help take the club...

Re: Bolton or Richardson

Why on earth would you sack Bolton? He's in his 3rd year with a list that was complete trash when he took over and while still struggling is only just starting to be a full "developing" list with youth instead of middle aged trash. Not to mention they lost their best player at the start of the seas...
