Really like what I've seen of Ramsay - looks a player and an option on the wing from next year.

I'd be interested to bring in Bobby Hill if we get him cheap, despite being contracted. Durdin looks like he'll be a slow burn, and I'd like to replace Eddie with another pressure forward option.

If we chase a mid would prefer it to be limited to FAs, and keep our picks to draft/trade in KPPs.

Use our rookie picks on players that have spent the year playing our style in reserves. Target potential rookie picks we like for our VFL side. Rinse and repeat.

Left field one, could the Blues look at a player like Josh Schache. Was the second best KPP behind Weitering in 2015 Draft. Hasnt made it as a forward, would he have the potential to switch to defence??
Wouldn't cost alot either with Bulldogs likely to give more oportunity to Ugle-Hagan.

Sorry I bored.Everyone knows we lack talls on every line. Here are some names that I feel that may help fill the holes in our list.
Tom Fullerton, Dan Mcstay, Connor Ballenden, Sam Dekoning, Esava Ratugolea, Charlie Ballard, Caleb Graham, Sam Weideman, Harrison Petty, Toby Nankervis, Cal Coleman Jones, Mabior Chol, Jarrod Brander, Bailey Williams and Harry Edwards. It's a mixed bunch. Any thoughts who we should look at in trade time.

If you had to look at Collingwood's list and Carlton's list, you would definitely go with Carlton. Once Pendlebury retires, they are stuffed. The thing that worries me about Lyon is that he is very similar to Malthouse in his approach, and is very defence orientated which is why he has never won a flag. Not sure Liddell would want Lyon around the club spruiking up SOS. If Carlton does not persevere with Teague then who do they go to?
Voss & Leppitsch as his assistant? Lots of experience at PA & Richmond
Do we go after Buckley if he gets the boot?
Throw 1.2 million per season at Lyon?
Perhaps go after Pike who did get Adelaide to a GF.
Get Ange Postecoglou back from Japan and give him the job.
Nafan Buckley?

Wouldn't cost alot either with Bulldogs likely to give more oportunity to Ugle-Hagan.
Could he do a Liam Jones? (Crap bulldogs forward, star Blues backman?)

Owies game on the weekend might be cause for further consideration.

But Tyson Stengle is being closely monitored for Mid Season draft.

I'd be personally looking at a KPP/Ruck. But Stengle has potential boom if you willing to take on the risk.
He’s related to Betts too.

Pass. I just don't see it. If memory serves me the talk was he did well in juniors/TAC/whatever because of the fairly extreme anti-density laws, leading into space an taking effectively uncontested marks. Not sure how well that would translate to down back where he'd have to be looking for contact a lot of the time, not trying to avoid it.

Not sure where else to put this but with all the angst of the the last couple of weeks, the weekend reminded us of a few things.

1. Between Harry, TDK and Weiterimg, our talls are set for a decade. Little bit more depth would be nice but the important work has been done. Often the hardest piece of the list puzzle.

2. We have 2 AA quality which I think you need to win a flag. Again, just need a bit more depth in that B grade category

3. Overall, we have built a fair bit of depth. There are some quality players in the 2s or injured. A few possibles when it comes to improving midfielders 3-6. It’s a big change for 3 years ago.

4. Pies aside, we’re beating the teams we should. Other 3 losses are against top 6 sides, albeit some disappointing aspects of those losses.

Some clear improvement required, particularly in terms of consistency of pressure and fwd/defensive structures but were going ok.
Agree with all of this but just wanted to point out that we have at least 4 AA-quality players on our list currently:
  • Weitering
  • Walsh
  • Cripps
  • Saad
Any of these 4 could be picked for the AA squad in a year where they avoid injury. That's more quality players than we've had since the Fev/Judd days. The rest of list lacks depth, but we have found some quality at least.

Docherty is ex-AA, and H could loom as a possible inclusion. Jones is in & out of the rolling AA teams, depending on which Liam rocks up.

DC would be a bonus if he regularly brings the vs ESS version to the table.

Looked shy of AFL standard again on Friday night. See if he goes around again with selection with the Bulldogs.
Forward.

Charlie Curnow. Could be the best player in the comp if he gets fit and lives up to his potential

Will be watching Weideman with interest this week. Tomlinson out injured means Tom McDonald probably moves down back and Weideman comes in to the forward line.

Don't think Melbourne would be in a rush to trade him, but if he doesn't set the world on fire he could well end up being dropped for more development time, which in turn could have him eyeing the door.

I think he'd be a viable target if Charlie went down again this year, but don't think he'd be wanting to go anywhere that won't assure him of senior selection. I could actually see a world where Weideman and a pick goes to Collingwood for De Goey...

If the AA was named now none of Weitering, Walsh or McKay would look out of place in the spine. How are we struggling to stay in touch with the top 8.

On the positive, the oldest of that group is 23. If we can't put together a top 4 team around this spine over the next 5 years I give up.

Issue is our senior stars are not performing, injured or combo.

Cripps - former AA in the prime of his life, former top 5 player of the comp. But playing well below his best and can't kick a set shot to save his life.
Docherty - former AA who has had to deal with knee recos and minor cancer scare. Playing well below his best from a defensive point of view, albeit still playing decently offensively.
Martin - Top 5 talent at the club. Injured for most of the season so far.
Williams - Top 10 talent at the club. Injured or suspended so far, can't get into rhythm.

These 4 (along with Saad) are our 5 senior players in that core age bracket which clubs rely on to carry the team. If all 4 + Saad were fit and firing, along with our 3 AA-calibre youngsters that would make a world of difference.

I've excluded Charlie given he is really an unknown.

McKay has been a slow burn, but with him now finally looking like a man and gun key forward, he and Charlie Curnow would arguably be the best key forward pairing in the comp. They'd certainly the best 'young' key forward pairing.

Such a shame we haven't been able to get them both on the park, it would be such a weapon for us and fun to watch. Defences would have a nightmare trying to cover both of them as they are both good marks and agile for key forwards.
