    The types of players we need are, in my opinion:
    A) big power key forward we can hoof it to to get out of trouble
    B) smart, dangerous and mature forward/mid (Stevey J, Daisy type)
    C) key defender

    Who exactly is the hardest question. None of those types grow on trees. I guess it would depend on who feels unsettled come seasons end.

    Very rare to get someone rated as "best in position" swapping clubs.
    Someone like
    Cloke, Hawkins etc
    SJ ,
    Harry Taylor , Grundy etc

    Mostly you get role players, someone adequate. Champs are mostly self produced.

    I would have though you are progressing nicely on the 2nd and 3rd. 1st may just have to be something you work towards , you have guys like Dixon who looks a good bail out type ... unless you can shake someone like Gumbelton loose.

    I see someone like Thomas coming off contract as a great target. Although that doesn't really relate to trading. I think a club like STK or the Dogs or Adelaide (who knows where they are at) - clubs on their way down who might look at offloading a decent older (mid-late twenties) player for a couple of high picks. Or a high pick and a young player we already have.

    Mind you, can't think of anyone off the top of my head from those clubs who I'd want. Except Riewoldt. Won't happen, but he is from up Qld way.

    Yeah funny I mentioned Dixon and then he kicks 6. But you have plenty of big tall guys.Like Lynch a lot.
    Could you do with a Harry Taylor . Of course. But I think you just keep working toward it.

    Really Im not sure you should do much in the way of trades bar pick any player that would be better than what you have. No obvious holes so much and plenty of potential in most spots. I don't see a need to trade in - it will be more likely that you again trade out and get earlier in the draft. Gather another early pick by on trading picks and fringe players. Gorringe and Nicholls for instance.
    Im sure you wouldn't mind Aish in your side , add Martin next year you have plenty of speed height almost the lot.

    You've gotta remember who we were playing though. Everyone looks good against GWS. Especially talls. But yeah, trade up for a higher pick if it came to it. My preference is still to target an experienced gun.

    After today's performance, wouldn't be the end of the world if we didn't pick up a forward IMO. Back in the young guys, GAJ will spend more time there too I imagine.

    Maybe it's the path of "defence, defence, defence" to victory after all. :p

    We looked unstoppable today most of the time. That won't happen against better sides. But yeah, if they can do that every week we'll be right!

    While we need an experienced KPF it is becoming more obvious through Warnock's injury that we need more experienced but not old KPDs. We really lack depth here. While I like the idea of swinging forwards back every now and then I much prefer stability in the side.

    Isnt Mitch Brown from WCE out of contract this year? I would be keen on him. Young and not a bad player.

    Frawley should be our number 1 target however.

    I'd be more inclined to pick up a free agent if one becomes available and hang onto our early picks. Also, do we have the option of shifting senior players to our rookie list instead of delisting?

    Just like Caddy was certain to go to Essendon? Don't be so sure. If we have a crack at him I'm sure he'd rather come here.

    I think you should specify. You mean Brown from WCE?

    I thought you were talking about Campbell Brown at first. I was all, what? o_O

    Still not showing, maybe it's my phone.

    Bloody hell you lot are illiterate! This isn't the Collingwood board is it? ;)

    Anyone keen on Mitch Brown? We would get him cheap as considering he wants out from the Eagles.
