How many finals have we won in those 5 years?
Same sort of arguments could have been made for not trading Bruce.
What about Clark? Or the potential ins from trades and FA?
He is far from untouchable if we can do deal where we come out on top, get it done while he has some valueWe haven't made final because of Seb playing? You'd think we had a premiership in hand the way you are talking. We haven't made finals because of abysmally poor drafting, recruiting and list management. We probably would have made finals last year apart from injury. We are playing better than our list profile should, if we cull all older players we will have to recruit some.
I'm not saying he's untouchable but you'd want to swap him for experience.
I’m wondering the same thing. Not super familiar with their list but they have a lot of top end talent.How could they fit him in ? They're at breaking point now
Tom Morris in his chat said Caldwell a very real strong chance to be coming to the saints
this one feels like Jones did last year. i reckon we've probably got it done.
also mentioned we might be chasing a key defender given the carlisle stuff
Every single player is held on to long if you don’t play finals whilst they are at the club. But isn’t that hindsight. If we don’t play finals in the next 5 years we might say we hung on to Steele to long.He is far from untouchable if we can do deal where we come out on top, get it done while he has some value
I didn't mind armo he was a warrior that gave all he had, but we held on to him to long
Williams & Caldwell aren’t an ‘either or’ situation though.BrutThough made a good point about this yesterday I think.
Caldwell, RCD, etc have talent but are yet to show it so I wouldn’t be actively targeting anyone unless they’ve showed they are capable of a good run of games for their current team.
So if I had to pick between Williams and Caldwell I’m taking Williams without blinking. We’re ready to climb up the ladder, now.
Cost? Maybe we trade them Ross straight swap. This could work as it allows Hunts in the middle for the now vacant spot. Risky, but I like it.Am I the only one who thinks Adam Saad for $500k a year is crazy?
One of the best attacking defenders in the game but also pretty elite one on one. If we were planning to move Hunter into the middle, I’d absolutely be having a look at Saad. Would fit our game plan nicely as well
