Who do we want?

Post by boncer34 » Thu Aug 03, 2017 8:52 am

Outside of Dusty because we all want him. Who else do we want? Personally I want Lever and Hopper.

I'd love Kelly but the cost of getting him plus his salary makes it hard to see him coming.

Is he out of contract? Or given any indication he wants out?

Don't know, and not sure. I just think this bloke is going to be one of the best players in the comp by the time he's 25.

Fair enough, he probably will be. Can't see how we get him though.

Just throw lots of money. Same thing is happening with Hogan. I'm sure Freo / West Coast is trying to lure him out west. We've just got to dangle the carrots to the right players at the right time.

The kind of money we would need to throw at him would be going to JD, Zerrett and Parish I'd be expecting. Hogan has the go home factor, Petracca doesn't have that for us.

From what I've heard, JD is getting paid peanuts compared to his true value.

He is but he'll want a massive bump next time I imagine.

Especially when he's on a four year coleman medal streak. :wink:

If we don't get Martin or Kelly (and I strongly doubt we will), I would dangle a carrot in front of Rocky.

Forgot about him. He seems to be sliding under the radar a bit.

Toby Greene. A .000000000000001% chance of ever happening but I would love it.

We need quality midfielders. Either through the draft or trade for some.

He'd certainly give us a bit of extra... kick!

Who do we need?
Backline - if we have Hurley, Hooker, McGrath, Baguley & McKenna then we just need a third tall who can add an attacking element. Lever?
Forward - if we have Daniher, Stewart, Fantasia, Walla, then someone who adds some grunt and can be a lead-up target (hoping Begley fills that role) so another tall contested marking target. Mitch McGovern?
Mid - if we have Zaharakis, Zerrett, Heppell, Parish (and rotate McGrath, Fantasia, Walla in there) then a "burst" clearance type that can go forward would be good. Petracca?
Add in Ridley, Mutch, Gleeson, Ambrose, Laverde, Langford, Francis and I think we'd have a pretty good balance. Although would be nice to have a couple more quicker types.

If we can`t get Kelly, then I`d be very happy to get Rockliff.

It would be the perfect replacement for Jobe. Maybe a little faster in fact :wink:
