Maybe this should be headed, who do we NEED?.

Our top priority this trade period should be to get Dylan Shiel to the club.

He is exactly what we NEED and sadly lack. A good inside mid cum burst player who uses it pretty well.

If we get him I don`t care what else happens this trade period. :)
He is one of the league’s best in goal creation

I’d be wrapt with getting sheil or Gaff... can we afford Gaff? People keep saying it’s either north or wc..his management say it won’t be about money, if that’s the case then surely we must be in the mix??? I’d be upset if we went for May over either of these two!! If we go for Sheil are we happy to give up pick 8?? Could we get both in a super trade period again :shock: :-k =P~ I don’t think we could afford them both but how good would we be!! :lol:

I would give-up pick 8 for Sheil in a heartbeat. You know exactly what your getting...just what we need.

Sheil AND Gaff...not sure it`s possible but if they could??? vingertje =D> vingertje

Only in my dreams I think :lol:

Funny,I always thought Gaffy was a Soft,outside receiver.But Geez,he’s got a right punch about ‘im,eh?

Seriously though,he’s generally a Fair player,who’ll give everything he can to get the ball.

If in the unlikely event we get ‘im,he Must be Protected at all times.

If he gets the shit tagged out of him,it’s someone else’s job to take care of any snipers!

In this day and age with a Shitmixing Tackle,that makes an opposition prick feel every bone in his worthless body ache for months!

As much as I hate the Eagles Windy,the funny thing is,I hate their players the least of all.

In fact,despite the flaws of 1 or 2,I pretty much like ‘em all,If those guys win the Flag,good on ‘em!

Ironic,eh?! :lol:

Yep Gaff is s generally a very fair player but if we did get him and the opposition tag him that would let the likes of Merrett Hep and McGrath get free... the reason we need a player like him is to add to that midfield depth of quality... Langford and Parish may come on and take the next step but we can’t rely on them just yet and Zaha and Myers just turn the ball over too much to be considered in the top end quality category.

3/4 Time Of The WAFL Grand Final,they’re 1 Quarter Away from completing the Treble of Colts,Reserves and League,going through 20 League Games undefeated.

And they’re Smashing poor old West Perth to the tune of 74 points.

Annual Leave would help.Public holiday tomorrow would also help if I wasn’t on Annual Leave. :roll: :lol:

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

Not sure why we would consider him....good player but does not fit the bill of what we need. Still, if you could land him and a top notch mid, why not

If the lad’s Manager has contacted the club to feel out our interest...fair enough. If the manager advises the club that he wants to land at Essendon then we should seriously contemplate. However, this is predicated by the fact that we prioritize a high quality mid. If that falls through then go for the best available option, which may in fact be the draft.

Given that Collingwood and the Eagles are in the great “no one gives a shit” grand final, can’t we just start the trade period now?

Allegedly courting Setterfield from GWS... http://www.afl.com.au/news/2018-08-16/e ... etterfield

Early draft pick, but has had injury issues and few games.

He's worth pick 8. Very very talented.

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 🎉🎉🎉
