    List Mgmt. Trade & F/A - 2019/20 Part 4

    I agree with Brown and Cox, North are pretty loaded cash wise and have no other KPF of Browns quality so he's staying and Cox has shown glimpses but no more than Mason or Mihocek that we already have. While I do mostly agree with you re Cameron, part of me just says that at some point someone...

    I don't mind Finlayson, he could certainly help bolster our KPP stocks at either end of the ground. However i don't think I'd be getting the first round pick involved unless something of quality was coming back along with him. He's also out of contract at the end of this year so not sure it...

    Player Watch Mason Cox

    I reckon you're thinking of Stevo's first goal against the Crows. The bold is a great point, from about the mid-way point of 2018 I started watching and treating Cox as the compliment to DeGoey, Stephenson and Elliott etc, rather than the other way round. I think if you adopt that view of him...

    Player Watch Tom Langdon

    I tend to think in any one side you could only have 2/3 of Howe Langdon and Shaz. Taking all three caused one of them to pick up a small forward who none are particularly suited for (Langdon being the best of the three at it) and having all three plus Moore and Roughy I think leaves us too tall...

    Round One 2020 Lineup

    Like the way you set it out! Well thought out in terms of locks and then the chasing pack. Only one I would add is possibly Rantall in the midfield group

    Player Watch Mason Cox

    I quite like big Mason, think he has the potential to offer something unique to our already very unique forward line. In comparison to those two players you listed however, fine players btw, they both had a prime Travis Cloke playing as the main key focus, who could consistently take marks and...

    Player Watch Dayne Beams

    Never understood why other clubs fans always enjoyed potting and abusing other teams lower down the order, or going through leaner periods. Above we have a Richmond fan getting excited about another club potentially declining (not even yet having declined), as if they themselves didn't stumble...

    Training Apples' & Jen's Training Thread 2019/2020

    I agree that in terms of rotations, and having flexibility or pinch hitting at time that I'm all for it. My concerns are (and maybe it's me reading to much into reports and comments from journo's and the club), is that they become required to spend significant moment through the middle. Would...

    Training Apples' & Jen's Training Thread 2019/2020

    I have to ask, is anyone else concerned about all this talk of Elliot and DeGoey going through the midfield more? We as a club have invested so much money and draft picks into our midfield group, yet we are still having to move our two best forwards there to improve that area? In terms of...

    What to do with Stephenson

    One of the most natural forwards in the game. Has pace, goal nous, leads really nice to the ball, has sticky hands, I'd be leaving him inside 50 as long as we can.

    Training Apples' & Jen's Training Thread 2019/2020

    Agree he should never be our sole focal target for a full 4 quarters, as that makes us far to predictable. I think that once you take out the time he spends in the ruck and on the bench, it's the allocation of the remaining time being split as a deep forward or as a up the ground forward. I just...

    Training Apples' & Jen's Training Thread 2019/2020

    Cox needs to be based closer to goal imo, he lacks the precision in his kicking and the vision to be a damaging deliverer of the ball inside 50, so why time and time again we see the big fella taking marks or getting possession 50-60m's out baffles me. Most of the time he takes possession...

    Darcy Moore Contract extension

    De Goey in my opinion is the one we need to prioritize. Moore is a gun no doubt about it, but replacing Moore I think would be much easier than JDG. De Goey can do things inside 50 that few can, reckon only Martin and Franklin, are in the same sort of category for their ability to win one on...

    List Mgmt. Trade & F/A - 2019/20 Part 4

    Just quietly on Petty, I hope he is one we keep a serious eye on this year. Out of contract at seasons end, and the Dee's are well stocked for KPP's. 197cm, 20year old who has shown ability at either end of the ground, could well be worth monitoring. Had quite a few fans in his draft year on...

    List Mgmt. Trade & F/A - 2019/20 Part 4

    Ah my words around floating utility were poorly chosen. More meant that he could have provided handy depth in all KPP roles, with being exclusively KPD depth the worst case scenario.

    List Mgmt. Trade & F/A - 2019/20 Part 4

    Casboult would have been a good player as a rotating KPP utility, or solid KPD depth at worse. The other factors going for him is that he is durable and would've come on the cheap.

    Pies narrowing window, last chance saloon.

    Yeah Cox I think could be that target for us, however he is very much subject to situation. He requires clear space in front of him to run and jump, and the ball to be kicked out into said space for him to run onto. Doesn't require the strength or ability to mark in a contested situation and...

    Pies narrowing window, last chance saloon.

    This is a very accurate post, and I have often felt the same way. When push comes to shove, GWS WCE and Richmond have tall targets who can manufacture marks inside 50 and multiple scoring shots, something the Pies lack. Granted this luxury doesn't come easily, as most of the other clubs will...

    Training Apples' & Jen's Training Thread 2019/2020

    I tend to agree although I have become a big fan of Mayne's role playing as the balanced defensive minded midfielder. Ideally I would prefer that role gets replaced rather than forgotten, and wouldn't mind it getting filled with someone like Shaz or even Quaynor (Phillips and Sidebottom I feel...
